Love this! I think I should win because I'm recently widowed, bored, poor, and paper challenged. I don't own any AC paper, I love it, but don't own any and probably won't anytime in the near future. I just spent another, yes another, $800 on my car, so paper is a luxury I can't afford right now and that means my poor photos are just sitting here...waiting....on paper....! Pick Me!!!

Hi Helen,

pick me, pick me, pretty pleeeeeeeeeeease!!!!!!
I think I should should win this awesome candy because I'm in desperate need of some paper goodies, and from AC, I do not have any, seriously!
Scrapbooking supplies are priced astronomically here in Portugal, and being unemployed, with very limited money resources, makes it very difficult to get hold of scrap supplies.
And I love, love scrap. And all things crafty. Please, please, consider me for the big prize.
Thanks for the chance to enter this giveaway.
Take care,

Mónica

choose me because I only have a job when there is work sometimes do not go to work straight days, so I can not buy anything, and these papers are beautiful to die, moreover in Portugal are very expensive and rare, I think a good reason for me choose otherwise never gonna get

Dear Helen,
my name is MArina and I have two very cute boys, as you can see onmy blog.
BUT: I feel like they don't need as much sleep as "normal" kiddies do...at night I have to get up twice at least to calm my 11 months old son Felix.
And Tim-Ole (6 years old) is every day awake at 6 in the morning and wants some entertainment (and breakfast of course).
To keep my balance I have started to scrap and as you know, you can never have too much paper (and of AC I don't have any yet), but it costts a lot of money, as my children do as well ;).
So please pick me and support my peace of mind.
Hugs from Marina.

Funny! you want whining? My goodness don't you know that paper crafters are a boastful lot? :) Of course, I deserve this more than any other because I can make some BEAUTIFUL projects and my grandchildren are more adorable than others :) ....so you just have to PICK ME!!!!...thanks for the giggles..

cecilia.cascais said...

I forgot to say one thing only won once and I gave up to compete because I never win anything so I stopped .....

Christine said...

I should win this paper because my dog just ate all of my other scrapbook paper. LOL

Wende said...

Hilarious!!!! Pick me, I deserve to win because i grew up on a tropical island, Key West, Florida is my hometown. I met a man fell in love and married him. Unfortunately his career does not permit us to live there. I rarely get home anymore, life, children, work, pets all interfere with our escaping to paradise. It i so sad because I love it there. This pack of fabulous papers reminds me so of home, I would be able to finally put together an album of all those photos that I have. Like any good wine, it improves with age, come back and read me again later! LOL Thanks for the chance to win.

Suzy said...

LOL! Here's all I've got. I'm a first grade teacher and one of way too many schools in a budget crisis. We are closing one elementary schools, cutting jobs and having way too many kids in a classroom. If I don't save my sanity with scrapbooking this summer on my time "off" to recharge my batteries I may not make it.

Dear Helen, I love this very sunny paper. And I think you should pick me because I cant buy this beautiful paper at my German Scrapbook Shop and I would like to create some very nice layouts with the paper and I would like to use your sketches, too!
Thanks for the chance to win the great giveaway!

My husband and I have been trying to make it to Florida since we met over 8 years ago. Everything from huricanes, to oil spills, to having children have gotten in the way. Finally, after 3 canceled trips, it looks like we are going to make it this year! Eight years and two kids later I want to preserve these memories as beautifully as I can (because with our luck we'll never make it back).

your funny!
I have many things i could whine about. MANY! But, I have God on my side and somehow whining doesn't seem necessary.
I do love your blog candy. It would be so fun to play with. I have never won any of your blog candy before so i would love to win!

Winning the AC papers would distract me from the pain I'm enduring from having an abscessed tooth. Taking pain killers is helping, but I can't drive or operate heavy machinery (ha ha), but maybe using scissors would be ok. Thanks for the giveaway!

Debbie said...

Pleaseeeeeee pick me!!!! Not that I want to jump on the feel sorry for me bandwagon, but I need something to brighten up my day!!! I am a single mom and I've been out of work for six months and am finding it so hard job hunting. I guess being 50+ doesn't help!! I just love the bright colors in this stack - perfect for those beach and summer pictures!!!

Lasting Memories Scrapbooking said...

thanks for the chance to win first off. ok here goes my whining-lol
lately i am feeling overwhelmed. i have 2 small boys and no time to scrapbook or even get things done. my youngest does not like me getting on the computer anymore.

Pene said...

This is too cute not to add my whine. I have 3 kids, and in our household we have recently added 4 more kids. My sister in law lost custody of her kids and we took them in. My youngest is 15 so for us this is starting over. I work full time and with so many kids I never have time for me, I had finally gotten my kids do their own laundry, but now I am doing laundry for six. I have a high stress job as a Furniture customer service rep at a care center for a large corporation so I have people screaming at me most of my day that combined with the kids fighting at home some days I want to run screaming out of the house. I honestly wouldn't change a thing, I love all my kiddos but this fun paper sure would make life a little brighter. :)

Kelly Massman said...

We have had a rough start to our year. On February 16, our 15 year old nephew died tragically, then immediately after that my mom went into the hospital with her heart. Her condition is treatable but she has been in the hospital several times as they are trying to get her meds regulated. On top of that, I ended up in the ER (probably due to the stress of everything)--had a lupus flare, migraine that wouldn't quit, and bronchitis! You might think I'm making all of this up, but, sadly, I am not! Not everything is bad though! Overall, I have a really good life... :-) Thanks for a chance to win!

Cindy deRosier said...

Life is treating me well recently, so don't pick me. I just want to say that I hope things look up for everyone else and wish you all the best.

Scrapsofstuff/Daphne said...

This is funny! Love your idea. I've got a lot to "whine" about. DH hasn't had an actual job for over 2 yrs. We have made ends meet through the scrapbooking industry. Every month now it gets harder and harder. The list goes on, from illnesses, to cars, to personal demons...but you know, despite how much I could whine...I think someone else should get this beautiful paper! AC Crafts has some awesome paper and I have seen this in the stores, even though I can't get it! This is a great prize! Good luck everyone!

*Heart2Heart* said...

Oooooooh dont get me started on whining today!! Haha! Well Im 8 months pregnant and just fed up now betwwen backache and SPD and Im new to crafting so havnt that much stuff and would love these beautiful papers!

Okispice said...

I need this paper because I'm going to a family and a class reunion this summer and need to lose weight. Scrapping is the only thing that keeps my hands busy so I don't eat. Ya hear me? The ONLY thing. I can eat during EVERyTHINg else I do, driving, walking, sex ... Please help!

Carla Melo - Caramelo said...

Hi, love this...

I would love to win these papers because in Brazil we have high import taxes and pay for 1 scrap paper value of US$ 3.00 or more... this sometimes makes it impossible to buy them.

Kisses...

Beverly said...

Whining....I'm a Mom of three daughters who have made an art of whining. They are older 18-27 so the really awlful high pitched continuous whining has pretty much ended ... oh how I wish it's ended. But seriously, I can't whine about paper, I just came back from a CK Convention and spent every last penny I had saved for such splurges. I can beg tho....Pretty pretty please with sugar on top and a cherry.... :) Thanks for requesting the whining and begging, as I really enjoyed reading everyone's entry!

María Castillo said...

Hi Hellen!! I really wish to win this awesome pps because it is simply imposible for me to find AC ppas here in Costa Rica and all scrapbook supplies are so expensive here in Costa Rica. I would make some lovely and bright pps for my kids!! Hugs, María

Diana said...

you're funny
OK, I should win this because in Jamaica we have no scrapbook stores and to get anything here costs a fortune to ship THEN you get charged customs duties also. And I love American Crafts products soooo much.

Anonymous said...

You should pick me because my children are so beautiful that I can't find paper beautiful enough showcase them properly! This paper would properly show them off. HA!
Whining and bragging at the same time!

Styme123 said...

:-S I could complain til you wish you couldn't hear! lol...but I'm blessed that I get frustrated, cause at least they are here to get frustrated with (aka kids and hubby), I could complain about medical debt, but because of that medical debt I have a 2 year old who is healthy even though born a premie and a husband who has decided veggies may be a better choice than junk food, I am blessed I have to iron umpteen shirts every month (which I detest) cause that means my hubby has a job and is able to support us.....I'm blessed. I have nothing to complain about! :-)

veteresgal said...

Ha Ha!! I just wrote a long post whining about all of the sad (but true) things going along in my life, and why I deserved these beautiful products, and could NOT get the computer to accept my post! Must be telling me something!! I really am blessed, and would just like a chance to try out all of these beautiful papers, if given a chance. Thanks!

Spardha said...

hehe.. I'm not sure if you'll be sorry for me or not.. But my reason is that my schools just got over.. I am not going to be a UNIVERSITY kid!.. and for the final exams prep.. I hadn't TOUCHED any crafty stuff.. and now that I am back, i wanna craft all day long! :D

JANLYNN said...

You want to hear whining ad crying huh. In Febuary my boss of 28 years was fired ( no good reason was given to us). Now administration has mnade it so rough on the girl he was grooming to take his job when he retired in October has had enough and she has pulled her name out of the hat of contenders. How is that for total uncertainy about a job you have held for almost 35 years. I am a medical Lab Tech in a hopital so I spend the day trying to make the unpleasent episode of drawing blood and running the tests so the doctors can save these people's lives. Notice I said Doctors but who gave him the info to know what is wrong? ME, BUT I AM THE BAD PERSON WITH THE NEEDLES. Oh well now if I just don't get fired tomorrow becausde I do really like to find out what is makeing my patients sick so we can make them better. jls at eplus dot net

perculator said...

I have just started cardmaking and everything I can get to help me with this and scrapbooking would be a great help. I love this package and I sure hope you pick me because I cannot afford a lot of extras.

perculator said...

Sorry I wrote my comment in and did not apply a name.
I am Janie Cordle and I recently took an interest in scrapbooking and cardmaking. I really could use this package you are offering because I cannot afford a lot of extras.

Kieara said...

Hmmm.... I'm not a complainer, and I don't wine.
You should pick me because the only thing that I have ever won was a down pillow - that my little sister then stole from me. My choices of scrapbook stores are slim to none, and I really like American Crafts - but usually have to travel 3-4hours to a decent scrapping store, OR! order something by mail.
Lastly, most likely I would bring this fun paper to work. I work in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit as an RN and we make name signs for all the new babies, as well as scrapbook pages for their mommies and daddies. All of the supplies that we have in our unit are donated by nurses, and I think that this might just be a perfect addition.
(I told you I really don't complain much... sorry!!)
Thanks for this opportunity.

Cathy said...
