Candy Question!

Evening all

Firstly, this pic of my absolutely makes me smile, it was when he had just turned one, and whenever I would say 'smile' this is what he would do...oooh, I adore this child (LOL and his equally cute big sis!!).

Anyway, the reason for tonight post is I have a question to ask....I want to offer all my fantastic followers, new followers, everyone some tasty candy for when I hit 20,000 hits. However, I have no idea what to thought I would ask your advice.

Remember, I won't be able to send it from Dubai so below are the things I have thought of and the most popular choice is what I offer as soon as I go past the 20,000. THIS IS NOT THE CANDY POST, YOU WILL NOT WIN ANYTHING BY COMMENTING ON THIS POST!!

1. digi images
2. stamps (sent direct from company)
3. bits 'n' bobs

If you have any advice, please, leave me a comment!!
