A Few Contributions

I have had the pleasure of working on a few Memory Makers books (before I began writing for Scrapbook Trends Magazine). I recently received one of these books back in the mail. This particular book was written by Kathy Fesmire, and I was really touched to be asked to participate. It's always more fun when you get to work with peers you admire.



Her book, "Time to Scrap" is filled with practical ideas on how to add fun elements to your scrapbooks. You can find the book here. With ideas like creative backgrounds, using household items, and using sketches this book will be a great addition to any home.

Here is one of my favorite layouts in the book. I used magic mesh on cardstock circles and attached tags to them with safety pins.



I will giveaway one of these books to one lucky winner. Just leave a comment in the comments section below in order to win. This book will be sent snailmail to one randomly selected winner. All entries must be submitted by Sunday, June 20th at midnight MST to be included in the drawing. Good luck!

On a personal note . . . the braces went surprisingly well. I think I was more nervous than she was. I'm hoping to get some photos of her today (if the weather clears up for a bit). And thank you for understanding my feelings about Joey's grave. It meant a lot to know that other people care as well! (And that there are still nice people in the world!)
