Well,as i promised i am back with the surprise(s) now.There are lot of reasons for me to celebrate in my blog,let me explain it first.

  • I have started my "Kalalayaa's school of art" on Tamil new years days,that is on April 14th,so its anniversary of my art school this month.
  • I am very close to reach 200 followers n 2,00,000 hits in my,...thanks for all your support and a special thanks all my lovely followers/friends:).I know there are blogs with thousands of followers n lakhs of hits,but its quiet a small achievement for me:)).(approximate hit per day in my blog is 400 n per month is 10,ooo.Thanks to all the visitors,hope my blog is quiet helpful n informative for you all,i really to my best to update all information's here.
  • June 9th is my blogs 2nd year anniversary,so its going to be celebration time till june:)).
  • i have started a new venture "Kalalayaa's handmade gifts",were some really cool and different handmade gifts will be available,to know more about my New store,continue reading HERE,..
  • My craft store will be soon updated with more new things like scrap booking kits,card making kits,do it yourself kits for quilling and punch craft,more new die cuts,handmade embellishment and more,so keep watching,..:)
Well enough reasons right?so its going to be a huge celebration here in my blog till June,with lots of challenges,awards,prizes,freebies and more,..coming on your way,so stay tuned.To start with all the celebrations, i offer a huge candy here with goodies worth around 5000rs to a lucky winner:))
The candy includes a EK success deep edger border punch,jef border punches,punch bunch punches,markers,2 set of acrylic stamps,aset of moulds,and lots of stickers,..

This is going to be the second prize,in order to win this please refer in the comment that you do quilling already,or like to start quilling from now on,because giving it to somebody who is not into quilling or not interested in quilling doesn't make any sense to me.

So these are the things to be strictly followed to win the candy,hope you don't mind spending some time to do all these to win these awesome goodies.It took me a while to plan all these,so please be fair to all the rules:)))

  • Become a follower of this blog and my CRAFT STORE blog,if you are not already.

  • Post the candy in the side bar of your blog with the link back to this post.
  • Post the celebration badge too in the side bar of your blog with a link back to this post.

  • Leave the link to your blog in Mr.linky, and be sure to leave a comment also as mr.linky sometime crashes.
  • Candy is open till june 8th,a winner will be announced on June 9th,that is on my blog's anniversary day.I know its quiet long,but there are lots more of other prizes to win till june,so keep watching my blog.
  • People who don't have a blog can still enter,leave your e-mail id in the comment section.
**I will be missing in action for next two weeks as i am committed with some painting works,so all the other celebrations will start after that.I am looking for some sponsors,so that it can be even more big and fun.So till that i am leaving you all with this candy,hope you all like it,E.N.J.O.Y.**
