A little candy for no reason

This post will stay on top untill Nov. 14th.
For all new posts scroll down.
This weekend I came across this cute backpack.
You'll find the tutorial here.

This backpack is filled with some cute goodies (not to big because it's small bag).
Curious on it's content???..
The only thing I can tell you it has got this cute Alota stamp in it, the rest will be a surprise.
And you know what I'm giving away 2 of those backpacks.

What do you have to do to get your hands on it.
1. spread the word about my candy on your blog.
2. become a follower of my blog.
3. Leave a comment at this post.
4. Name one person who you think deserves the second backpack and why.
If you don't want to tell the story on my blog, send me a email with your story.
Winner will be announced on Saturday Nov 15th.
Good luck everyone.
xoxo Karin

Hi! I've just got that tutorial, thank you :D
Now I am a follower of your blog and I will link your Blog Candy in my blog, under the section "Blog Candy". I don't know what person deserves the second backpack ... maybe my scrapper friend Valeria because she is not having a good mood in this time ...

Hello Karin :)

Thankyou for such a fun opportunity - a present in a present!!

I have added you to my Candy Store on the sidebar of my blog. Been following you for awhile now :) So that is done.

Now for a second person I think my friend Sarah she has just started card making and has no idea what I meant when I said stamps to her!! Quite shocked when she said that. So I intend on stamping her some images sometime so she can make a card or two. She is also in the middle of studying for her exams and is freaking out a little. So a little something would brighten her day too.

Have a wonderful day
Hugs Heather

I've already been one of your stalkers for a while now but I will add you to my blog roll no problem. I know my friend Jacquie would love one of your backpacks because she would oooh and aaah over just as much as I would. It would be just like Christmas with 2 little girls.

Sharon said...

Hi Karin
These backpacks are so cute & I would love to win the mystery contents. I just love surprises.
I have a lovely friend Nicola who I met through the Docrafts website. We've never met as she lives on the Isle of Lewis & I'm in England but we keep in touch by email. She's had a long lapse in her crafting & has had some very sad news regarding her dads health & is very down at the moment. She's just started a bit of demonstrating & running a little craft club of the island & the other backpack would cheer her up no end. What a lovely idea.

Sharon :-)x

Sharon said...

Sorry, I forgot to say, I've added you to the candy blog roll on the right hand side of my blog & added myself to your followers.

Hai Karin,
Wat een lief rugzakje, en wat spannend dat je niet helemaal onthuld wat er in zit. Enne...klein maar fijn, toch?! De stempel is iniedergeval super!
Ik ben al een tijdje stalker van je blog; ik kom graag bij je neuzen voor nieuwe ideeën!
Inmiddels heb ik op mijn blog verteld over deze blogcandy.
Rest mij alleen nog een tweede persoon te noemen; wat mij betreft mag je, als ik de candy win, uit de andere inzendingen een tweede gelukkige trekken!!
Wens jou een fijne dag, liefs, Kyra.

Riet said...

wat een lief tasje Karin.

liefs Riet.

V Colbourne said...

This is super cute Karin!! What a great giveaway too!!

I've just became a follower of your blog :)

For the second bag, I think my online scrapping buddy Deanne ( deserves the second one. She devotes so much time to these online blogs- she has a personal blog, a sketches/DT blog of her own, a Christmas card blog ALONG with other DT things she does and recently she created a swapping group here in our local area for us scrappers to swap things! She is also a teacher, a mother and a wife. This woman (as most of you out there) is such an inspiration to someone like myself!


Amanda From: AJ's In-Sanity Center said...

Annelies said...

Very fun backpack! Here's my link and I also became an 'official' follower of your blog, because I already visited regularly. I would like to give a second package to Linda as a thank you for a great stamping weekend she organised a couple of weeks ago. I've learned a lot of new techniques and met great people. And I'm happy she's prepared to organise a second edition. Thanks for a chance to win! Greetings from Belgium, Annelies

carine said...

Pam's Pride said...

Beautiful gift bag!! Linking you up to my blog! I think JenMarie from SCS should win the second one because she is so sweet, giving, and kind!

Anonymous said...

I think that Susan a young woman I worked with at Cresteramics a sheltered workshop should have the second backpack. She struggles to make her money stretch far enough for the necessities. She loves crafts but doesn't have the resources to treat herself very often. Thanks for the chance to win some blog candy and I know Susan would be thrilled to death to win. Ann Lind

Kathy ~~~ said...

Great blog candy! hope I win. I have you listed on side bar under
bog candy alert.
and am follower.
Person I'd like to win other bag is my friend Michelle who knows how to make me laugh even though I don't feel like it.

Olga aka Niona said...

Hello, Karin! I from Russia.
Great candy, thanks!!!
Have linked you of my blog, welcome!

Sarah said...

Hi Karin!! Great blog candy!! I've added a post about it on my blog. I've also just become a follower of your blog!! I think my friend Shannon should win the second backpack as she's a great person and I think she deserves a surprise!! Thanks for the chance to win!!

Eisbärin said...

Hello and thank you so much for doing this great blog candy! I love surprises! I will add your candy to my blog as soon as I have finished typing :-)
For the second backpack I would like to nominate my friend Kathleen ( because she is a very dedicatd crafter that just made a 6 hour roundtrip to my house for a craft day at my house!
Thanks for the chance, love,

Lisa Lou said...

I love surprises! I’ve added a link on my blog.

Who came to mind for the second was a lady whose site I read at she does challenges, runs a stamp store, takes care of her kids, and keeps 2 blogs updated daily. That’s impressive to me.

Rheannon said...

I adore this little backpack Karin! What a fun craft and idea for gift giving.

I am now a follower to your blog. This is something I've never done. Very cool :)

I'll link your candy to My Blog and lastly the person I'd nominate for the 2nd backpack would be my boss, Laura. She is also a paper crafter, due to my persistant nudging and enabeling, in the beginner stanges. She is so adorable, big ideas, no time to practice so she gets so frustrated in the process! She spent 7 hours over the weekend cutting diecuts for a Christmas gift. Good grief the girl could use some love!

Thanks for your inspiration, great projects and the candy oppertunity.

Draygonflies said...

I saw one of these on another blog but it was not as cute as yours! I'm going to have to go back and get that template now!

Your blog has been added to my new Blog Candy listing on the right hand side of my blog.

I would give the second backpack to my niece Jessica. She is a crafter at heart, but life has gotten in the way of her creativity. It would be wonderful to see her find herself again!

No matter who you choose for either backpack, thank you for offering such a thoughtful and lovely gift.


Bunny B said...

Hi Karin!
I've blogged:
and I'm a follower! I think one of my friends deserves the 2nd backpack because like me, she too enjoys cardmaking :) Thanks for the chance!

StampinCathy said...

This is adorable and even all packed up with sweet goodies. I would love to give the other one to my BF, cuz her birthday is this month and this would be so awesome for her! We moved 7 months ago and now we are over 600 miles away. We use to get together all the time to play and create projects. Now we just get to talk about it. Thanks for a chance at this fabulous handmade project.

barnchick said...

This backpack is precious. I would love to send one of these to my friend Mary who is going through an extremely tough time in life with her husband and children. She is so strong and keeps going through all the madness. I am so proud of her resolve to perservere for the good of her family when many others would give up. Thanks for a chance at this prize.

Jacqueline said...

Hi Karin! What a great backback! So cute!

I have become a follower, I had you in my google reader that sometimes makes me forget to follow on the blog!

Here is my blog link

I think my divine secret sister from SCS would be worthy of getting the second backpack, she has been such a good support for me and a great friend! Even though we are far away from each other she stays in contact with me and it is so nice!

Thanks for the opportunity to win you candy!

Katie @ Paper Makeup said...

what a stinkin cute backpack! I adore it! I've put you on my blog, am following your blog (and what an awesome one it is!) and my friend Rachel NEEDS this bag. She loves stuff like this and is pretty laid up waiting on the birth of her baby girl (and wouldnt this oh so adorable back be great for that?!) :)

Thanks for the chance to win!

Dag Karin, wat een super schattig tasje is dat! (dat blauwe tasje is ook echt heel mooi! Maar helaas is die leeg en niet winbaar :P )
Je hebt er vanaf nu weer een stalker bij! Ook sta je bij mijn blog candy's (als enige, aangezien ik pas gisteravond een blog heb gemaakt)
Ik weet eigenlijk niemand aan wie je dat 2e tasje zou kunnen geven, mocht ik zoveel geluk hebben de eerste te winnen ;) Ik ken ook nog niemand die ook een blog heeft, en ook verder geen mede-scrappers, aangezien ik dat ook nog maar sinds augustus doe.. Was per toeval ook via via op jouw site terecht gekomen, maar ik kan het dan niet laten om mee te doen he ;)

Echt leuk, zo'n kans om iets te winnen :)

Liefs, Ava

Josette said...

How sweet of you to offer blog candy. If I could give the extra backpack it would be to my good friend and neighbor Shawna. First she would think its the cutest thing ever and would keep it forever and 2. she is such a great friend and helps me whenever Iam in need and is always there to listen to my troubles.

PS love your blog.

Heres mine

maxell said...

Such a really cute backpack. Perhaps the cutest I have seen. Looks like a great backpack for my little son to carry all his nature findings in... :)

The second backpack... It should probably go to a scrapfriend of mine. One person I know only in this virtual world. She have some really tough time now and she would most likely be inspired to start creating again if whe can see, touch, smell, hear and taste such a cute backpak. :)

david santos said...
