Hello friends.   I am celebrating my 600 Followers and 3 years with Close To My Heart; and would love for all of you to participate in my Blog Celebration.  Click here for the blog post. Join my followers on Google Friend Connect, leave a comment on my blog celebration post and link your blog with Mr. Linky.  No blog, no problem.  Leave me a comment stating that you don't have a blog. I will add you to my list manually.  

I am giving away at least 25 wonderful prizes; maybe more; depending on number of entries.
