3 year anniversary GIVEAWAY!

This is my third year blogging! I can still vividly remember the day I started my blog… I used the Blogger Ochre template, and thought it was the bee’s knees! Haha! I tried to recreate what my blog looked like when I first started, and here’s what I got:
Oh goodness! I have come so far :) I had to recreate it, because back then I had no idea how to do screenshots… {what? what on earth is that??? :)}
And here’s what I have now:
I am very proud of what I have accomplished in the last 3 years! Everything I have learned about Photoshop, Blogger, and HTML I taught myself, with help from other tutorials and YouTube videos :)
My first post, 3 years ago:

My name is Emily, and I have 3 siblings. I am 12 years old. The reason I got a blog, is because 2 of my sisters have Facebook. I am not old enough yet and I probably won’t get one when I am old enough. One of my favorite past times is writing. I have written several books. The one I have completely finished is not published, but I hope to publish it soon. My love for Jesus Christ is something that I can’t explain. I got baptized when I was 10 and I cherish every moment of it! Since this is my first entry, it is probably very boring to you all, but as time leads on, I will share (hopefully!) more interesting things. Well, that is all for now. I will try to write whenever time allows, and mum!

12? Hehe, I sound so young :) {not trying to knock all 12-year olds, just saying that I was… silly then :)}

I also forgot to post about this, but this post was my 800th post! Good grief, I have posted so much :)
3 years = a little more than 800 posts! That means approximately how many per day… Nah, too much math involved :)

And now for the giveaway! This is for all my super sweet readers, and that one person who has read my blog since the very beginning {Thanks Davene!} :)
