Thank you so much to everyone who donated money to the Make a Wish Foundation! We had 60 tickets in the pot and I just pulled the winner.
Congratulations to Jennifer Hausman! You just won a boatload of scrappy products! Enjoy!

Between the raffle and regular donations, we raised more than $400.00.
Thanks again!

Cropping my heart out!

There are so many inspiring activities going on right now. One in particular is Fall Into Fall at Color Me Daisy. Each day they are posting a challenge and lots of prizes are being given away!

Here are just 2 of the projects I have made so far.

In this one we had to make a flower from a piece of ribbon. I LOVE this technique!

Make a Wish Foundation Scrappy Goodie Basket Raffle!

Hi everyone!

My husband and I are participating in a Wellness Challenge at our local gym that benefits the Make a Wish Foundation. The contest runs from Sept. 17-Oct. 29th. Our goal is to visit the gym frequently to participate in game card activities where we earn points and raise money to help grant the wish of Alison, of Berks County, PA.

Alison has acute lymphacytic leukemia and her wish is to go to Disney World to meet Snow White and Cinderella.

To help our team raise some money, I've put together a huge basket full of scrapping goodies! I am going to raffle off this basket and will be adding goodies to it if I hit certain goal amounts.

[b]Raffle tickets are:
1 ticket for $5.00
3 tickets for $10.00
8 tickets for $20.00[/b]

I will be putting all tickets into a big bowl, and will pull one winner.

[b]If you would like to help, you can buy raffle tickets by either:
*sending a check payable to the Make a Wish Foundation addressed to:
Taryn Stothart
35 Walnut Drive East
Bernville, PA 19506

*sending a paypal payment to tarynstots1 at yahoo dot com
(In the subject line, please put Make a Wish Donation so I know to enter you in the drawing!)

I will be accepting donations until October 26th. I have to hand in all money on Oct. 29th.[/b]

Now for the good stuff! Here are some pictures of the goodies in the raffle basket:

And some close ups:

If the donation amount reaches $75.00, I will add this:

If the donation amount reaches $150.00, I will add this:

And if the donation amount reaches $250.00, I will add a complete August Scrap Attack Scrapbooking Kit!

I will pay shipping to the winner if the winner is not local to me.

Even if you can't donate, please help spread the word by posting on your blogs or other message boards where allowed! Also, be sure to become a follower of my blog so you know if you win! I'll post the winner here!

Thanks, and please let me know if you have any questions!
