Yep, it's that time! My 1 month blogaversary is on this Saturday, so how about a little Basic Grey for some blog candy? Who doesn't love Basic Grey?! I am offering some {un}dressed chip board from the Infuse line (these are adhesive-backed, so kewl), some magnetic tie backs -the round ones, and a pack of fiber from the Obscure line. I've also thrown in some Primas and 2 1yd spools of elements ribbon (twill and double stitched) similiar in color to River Rock.

All you have to do to enter is tell me what your top 5 "desert island" records are. What is a desert island record? Well, first I think I'm dating myself here, but back in my day music was records, nowadays you find music on CDs or the computer! Anyway, your top 5 records you would chose if you were stranded on a deserted island. Mine (in no particular order) are:

1. Siamese Dream by the Smashing Pumpkins
2. Back in Black by AC/DC
3. The Best of The Smiths, vol 1 by The Smiths
4. The Colour and the Shape by the Foo Fighters
5. Promises and Lies by UB40

You have until 5pm (Pacific time) Friday to enter, and the winner will be announced Saturday the 12th. I haven't a clue on how to use the random number generator, so I will have my oldest son draw a name of all the entries from a hat! I look forward to hearing what albums everyone loves! Thanks and good luck!
