I Won! - Spotted Canary competition

These are the USD$100 worth of goodies sponsored by K&C which I won in their Spotted Canary Forum Halloween challenge last year. The goodies arrived before the Chinese New Year and haven't got time to make a picture collage using Picasa (..because I don't know how to until I saw a tutorial by Pretty Pressings) and to post it in my blog.
I may not be using some of the tools so am thinking of putting up on my blog for sale sometime later.

Prizes include:
10 EK Success punch
1 Martha Stewart 12"x12" paper pad
1 Martha Stewart punch around the page set - Loop
2 K&C fun sticker and alphabet sticker
1 EK Success hole punch
1 set of glitter glue (green, teal, red)
3 Inkadinkado rubber stamps (bird, leaf, butterfly)

I have another goodies arrived yesterday, a candy I luckily won last month. Will post about it sometime later of the week.

Until then.

Happy crafting to all!
