Time to Sparkle #84 and a Giveaway

Woo hoo!  It’s party day!  The day where you all get to take over blogging for the day for me!  I love it!

Before we all get partying though, I have some fun stuff to share with you.  Do you know Julianne from Beyond Frosting?  She makes me drool every day with delicious things like these Samoa Stuffed Brownies with Caramel Frosting or this Triple Chocolate Poke Cake. I had the opportunity to meet Julianne last summer at BlogHer Food in Austin, and then again this past summer in Miami.  She is such a sweetheart, and I always enjoy chatting with her.

Today I am joining with her and a few of my blogger friends to celebrate her Second Blogiversary with a fun giveaway.  How would you like to win new Kitchen Aid or an iPad mini or an Amazon gift card?  Make sure you enter below for the chance to win your choice of gift. May the odds be ever in your favor!

    I have to admit I had never heard of Beyond Frosting until you mentioned it. I checked out her site and really liked it. Pumpkin muffins! That is my idea of yummy! She takes some fabulous pictures also.

    I’d never heard of Beyond Frosting before today’s email from BruCrew. But let me tell you, I went straight to the subscribe box and added my email address. Thank you for a great new blog to follow.

    I can’t remember how I heard about you. I’ve been subscribed via email for awhile. Another blog probable showcased one of your recipes and while looking through, decided I loved all your recipes.

    I can’t remember how I heard about Inside BruCrew Life, but I’ve been following you for awhile now. It was probably Pinterest since I have an unhealthy Pinterest obsession! ;)
