Mad Tea Party and GIVEAWAY!

Welcome to my blog! And welcome to the 7th Annual Mad Tea Party sponsored by A Fanciful Twist.

It is my first year participating, very exciting! I wasn't able to implement all of my plans for the day, due to hubby spraining his ankle badly this week, but I wanted to share a wonderful little banner I made for the Gecko Galz Cross Promotion event with A Wild Abandon. Check out Gecko Galz for more pieces created using products from these wonderful companies!

And be sure to check out the giveaway at the end of this post to celebrate this day!
