Sponsor Feature and Giveaway with Paint.Paper.Play!

We are back with another cute sponsor feature and giveaway!!!
Please  Check out Jessica from Paint. Paper. Play!!

My name is Jessica Loughrey. I am married and we have a five year old daughter. I have loved art since I was a child. Growing up I was very into fashion and books. I was always reading and sketching. Today I've translated those two loves into a passion for art journals and art dolls.

You can find me here:

I write a blog called Paint. Paper. Play. It's an art blog featuring many, many photos of my various projects. I've also started writing a weekly feature post on Tuesdays called Tutorial Tuesday. So far I've done four tutorials. The newest one is here (http://jessicaloughrey.blogspot.com/2010/09/tutorial-tuesday-to-dye-for.html) I plan to also feature the results of me doing tutorials from other blogs.
I also have a shop on etsy (also called Paint. Paper. Play.) Currently the shop features a selection of art journals, art dolls, mini art quilts, painted papers and clutch purses for sale. I am working on new products to add to my shop including holiday/seasonal themed items.

 I don't really have any autumn traditions, although I definitely love to pull out my camera and take lots of photos of the changing leaves. I love all of the gorgeous colors. Also I ate some crazy delicious apple bars today that I just may have to start baking.

I will be offering two giveaways, each giveaway features books and/or magazines. Both giveaways will also come with a packet of my painted papers. To enter please leave a comment here, be sure to specify which giveaway you are interested in.

Giveaway 1:  Altered Books 101 and Crafting Personal Shrines.
Giveaway 2:  The Rubber Stampers Bible, Scrapbook Trends: Stamping (magazine) and Stampers Sampler Dec/Jan 04 (magazine)

 You have until Sunday night to enter the giveaway and Jessica will draw two winners on Monday.

**Run With Scissors is now accepting sponsor spots for the month of October!! If you are interested in an ad space to promote your cute blog or shop, please email me at the link above!!  I would love for you to be a part of my sweet blog :) **
