Amber's Giveaway!

Sometimes you just make a connection with someone.
And that someone is Amber!
Amber and I connected in a FB group last summer and this past winter I reached out to her to see if she wanted to collaborate on a few things.  This led many things including our collaborative blog All About 3rd Grade!  
Amber is the reason I decided to pursue blog designing.  After designing our All About 3rd Grade blog, she believed in me and was the first person to ask me to design her blog.  She is such an encourager and cheerleader!  I have loved getting to know Amber and next week, I get the pleasure of meeting her in real life and rooming with her in Orlando for the TPT Conference!  I can't wait!!
Amber is celebrating her new design with a giveaway! 
She's giving away her new set of Brag Tags
