Oh Ann!
Great candy!
Thanks for the chance to win it. Really want to be the lucky winner. In the summer I wish to go to England or Italy. And still I at last start to learn English language.
Thanks and Happy Mothers Day!

Susan Raihala said...

We're taking the kids to northern Minnesota for a week at a resort on Lake Vermilion. DH's family is from the Iron Range, and his sis and her family and their parents will also be there. Later in the summer, we'll visit my family in Maryland. Good times!

Kristin said...

I'm so excited for our family vacation this year! Were going to Palm Beach, Fl!! Our daughter is 1.5 and is going to love the beach!! Thanks for the shot at my favorite kind of candy!!! Papertrey is yummy :)

Smart Ass Sara said...

I'm going sky diving. Hopefully I'll survive so I can use the goodies from this blog candy. Which we all know I'm going to win. ;)

Sarah said...

My plans are to do a bit of traveling, some novel-reading, and LOTS of crafting :)

Kathy Martin said...

AWESOME....love Papertray Ink! I've got a few things on the agenda....when our son is at camp for a week my hubby and I are going to play. We usually go away somewhere but this year we just want to stay home and hike and go to our fave restaurants etc. Then later in the summer we are going to Lake Tahoe for a week. At the very end of summer we'll go to Carolina Beach for our annual few days at the beach before school starts. Sounds like fun, huh? :)

Rhonda Miller said...

We'll be staying pretty close to home for the summer. We do travel into the city and visit some of the bigger parks and take a trip or 2 to the zoo. The kids love anything we can do outside. Lots of fun.

Elizabeth said...

NO big summer plans yet.. In July a big group of SCS girls are meeting up for a stamping weekend here in NC. I can't wait for it! What fun to get to meet a bunch of girls I have been chating with all this time! :)

Ginny said...

Not much, my dd has a dance competition in another state in July & then pretty much beach as much as possible!

So far no "Summer" plans, but the beginning of June is jam packed. Camping, car shows, company, goonies weekend, mini vaca with the hubs! I'm excited!

Lisa Fink said...

My summer is full of softball games - both of my girls and my husband. I will be their number one cheerleader :)

craft_princess said...

My plan include building a new house. That will probably take up all my spare time!
Thanks for a chance to win!

dazey said...

What a great giveaway. We have no set plans yet other than hanging by the pool, sending kiddos to daycamp a bit and hopefully getting some serious rest & relaxation!

LeAnne said...

We don't have many plans this summer..the economy has really hurt my DH's business, but I don't mind...I am a homebody anyway! DD is having a baby in August, my nephew is getting married as well, so there will be lots to keep us busy! I can just hang out at my DS's pool! Thanks for the chance to win!

Jane Jeffress Thomas said...

My new in ground pool was finished day before yesterday and I will be spending my summer in there!!! I have waited a lifetime for this.

JenMarie said...

Oh how fun!
My plans.... go 'home' to visit family...and family and friends coming to visit us!

Our family is going to the beach for a week with my parents and sister's family. We are also going to try to drive to Washington DC for a long weekend to visit friends and see the zoo.

Tami said...

WOW- great candy! I am going to go to some workshops since I am switching back to teaching K from first grade. Then I will also spend time hanging out with friends and family

laurlynn said...

Yeah for northern MN (refer to an earlier post) - I'm hoping we'll be able to go to Duluth, MN this summer. Every time we plan for it, something comes up. Otherwise, nothing but enjoying the kids enjoy their sports activities!

This summer we are going home to visit my parents being a military family and being so far from home we don't get home very often in fact it's been almost 4 years now so I'm really excited especially since we'll be with family for my oldest son's birthday. He's gonna be a teen. Eek! Where does the time go? I can't wait to spend time with my family and eat at my favorite haunts. Thank you so much for this wonderful prize. I know whoever wins it will be one happy person! I have posted about this on my blog. Thank you!!

Carrie said...

Karen B. said...

No major summer plans here, I like to avoid camping when I can which usually means the hubby takes the children and I get to stamp! Thanks for offering the candy, and I can't believe I haven't officially followed until now, sorry! I've been a fan ever since EbtKS started and I think that's one of the best challenges out there, so thanks for that too!

Deb Neerman said...

Great give-away, Ann! Who wouldn't LOVE to win this!?!

No "official" plans but I'll do lottsa beach days, several museum/art gallery/zoo day trips, some fishing trips with the DH, but mostly layin' out by the pool. Sounds like a perfect summer to me!

Nancy L. said...

We are hoping to be able to see my SIL in texas. If not then we'll be by the pool and the beach side a lot :)
thanks for the chance to win!

Maureen said...

summer plans? I always say to "do nothing." As a teacher, I'm sure you understand that one after 10 months of doing "everything." Hopefully fishing, camping, shopping, visiting with family...and of course, nothing!! LOL

Lauralee said...

Wow! Thanks for the chance to win some blog candy! Our summer plans include a month at Fort Wilderness (Disney) in August. Can't wait!!!!

Laural-Lee said...

Hi Ann! I love your CAS card. They're always fab! My summer plans are to move only 5 minutes away but closer to the school my kids attend. We are supper excited (I finally get the craft room I've been dreaming of) but we are feeling very overwhelmed.

Hope you have a fab summer planned. Any design teams? like last summer's spell on SC?

Thanks for the chance to win. I'll mention something on my next post...hopefully tonight.

Julie said...

Wow, awesome blog candy! We are planning on going to Nashville next month! Even with all the flooding and our hotel is shut down, we are headed down. It will be our kids first airplane trip and they are 13 and 16!!! Thanks for the chance to win!

Marisa said...

I just love PTI and have a long wish list! Thanks for the chance to win :D Summer plans: We always do the VBS at the church for a week, then on to two weeks of swimming lessons, a week on Vancouver Island visiting my in-laws, two more weeks of swimming lessons and cat sitting two cats somewhere in the middle along with some trips to the beach, some jammie days and just hanging out with my kids. Love the slower schedule and being able to sleep in LOL!

HazelQ said...

Hi Anne! Thank you for the chance to win this fabulous candy, I've always wanted to try Papertrey Ink products :) I guess I don't really have plans for this summer, I'm hoping to go to a cousin's wedding in California but I'm not sure yet... and the rest of the summer? Mm well I guess working is on the list and wedding planning to ;)
Hugs
Hazel

I have quite a few Papertrey goodies on my wishlist! Fab giveaway!!!! We're about to take a break the beginning of June, with a trip to the Netherlands (we're belgian. Nothing fancy, just relaxing, letting the kid play in the swimming pool, and stuff like that.

Janet said...

Oh, what a great blog candy - love Papertrey Ink. I am so excited about our summer vacation this year - we are going to Washington DC with our three children. We have never been and we are looking forward to it.

Thanks

cindy ziliak said...

My vacation has already started. I am visiting a friend in Knoxville TN. One highlight of my trip has been a visit to McKay's Used Book store. I bought plenty of reading for my summer!

Crystelle said...

Summerplans? Well, definitely lotsa camping and some painting on the house. Try to stay away from gardening too much. When I do that i don't have any time for play with my kids!

The Brat said...

Mostly we will stay home with a couple weekend trips to Northern Idaho and the Ocean. The kids will swim in our pool and have sleep outs and movies on the big screen in the man cave, and we always have a big July 4th party. Hopefully we can squeeze some jet skiing on Lake Washington (15 min. from here.

Oh, and work, work, work!

Chloe said...

Just blogged about your awesome giveaway on my blog!

Julie E said...

Hmmm summer plans...Cape Cod, Sesame Place and lots of LI! Not to mention some stamping and I better get around to some scrap booking too :>)

Michelle (mla1111) said...

This summer I will be finalizing my planning for my wedding in the fall... its coming soon! :) I also have a trip planned to PA for the Creating Keepsakes Convention...super excited for that... always fun!

Aimes said...

Oh Ann you're so sweet to offer this scrummy candy! How could I turn down the chance of winning some PTI pennies?!
My summer will be here in the UK, we tend to go on vacation at Easter or in Sept/Oct (much cheaper and I don't burn too much then LOL!) But there's plenty to do here in summer as you're bound to find out soon....;D

Angie Tieman said...

Girl, that's quite a give away!! So generous of you! My summer plans: sleeping AND paper-crafting! Does it get any better than that?!

TannyP said...

What fabulous candy =) I'd love to snag some PTI gear.
I have no summer plans because we're heading to New York at the beginning of September. Unless you count building a garage - but since we're paying someone else to do it, I don't think it counts =)

Harriet Skelly said...

No specific summer plans here - DH and I are retired so we go places when it isn't too crowded. We will be working on fixing up and redoing parts of our house though. Thanks for a chance to win a PTI gift certificate!

Lisa Summerhays said...

I hope to get my house all organized and do lots of playing with my two kids this summer.

Alison said...
