I probably enjoyed my Valentine party more than anyone else!  You know you had a great party if the hostess enjoys herself.  Such fun par-tay posts!  Thank you for making the party such a success.

The random generator selected numbers for five give-aways.  The give-aways will be announced at the end of the following video (Yeah, I’m sneaky.  I’m going to make you watch the video if you want to find out if you won a prize! I really just don’t want anyone to miss seeing all the fab Valentine posts that showed up for my party.)

I wish I had a prize for each of the participants. Laurie

Hi Laurie...

Hearty congrats to the lucky winners of your sweet giveaway too!

Have a fabulous Friday, Laurie!
Love ya,
Chari asked about how my Dad was doing...he went to be with the Lord Jan.31st. I'm very thankful that I was able to be there with him and the family when he passed over the threshold of heaven! Thank you for asking, dear friend and thank you for your prayers. Please continue to keep my Mom in your prayers! Love ya!!!

Great job Miss Hostess with the Most-est!

Congratulations to the winners! I really enjoyed that video. I hadn't been able to visit many blogs because of computer issues. It was so nice to see a summary.

I remember that you did that last year, too. That's the kind of stuff that sets you apart from the rest. I mean that very sincerely, too.

Have a wonderful weekend!
Almost time to jig!

You have a lot more patience than I do.
I did not have anything to contribute, but enjoyed seeing what everyone else did.
Congratulations to all the winners!
Have a great weekend.

Hi Laurie!

OMGosh!!!!! This is the very first time to ever win a blog giveaway... I didn't even realize there was a giveaway :0) I was just wanting to party!

I will have to tell BJ about this...I was just telling her how lucky she is to always win stuff... in fact it was her blog where I found out about your party. I can't believe we both won... How serendipitous!

I loved looking at the smilebox video... you spent SO much time throwing this great party... and now that fun video. Thank you SO much. I must also say that these are mighty fine prizes/gifts. Unbelievable!
