my cup runneth over

To celebrate my mum's successful surgery last night,
and to celebrate being the week's inspiration at scs,
and to share some of my blessings of late,
I'd like to gift some little crafty things that you may enjoy:

The first is a pack of brand spankin' new, customer gift-exclusive Bountiful 8x8 papers from Creative Memories! The prints are so rich and gorgeous, and you get 24 papers in the pack.
This picture shows just some of the prints:

The second is the June issue of Scrapbook Trends, where I am thrilled to have my clear Ellie album :)

The third is the August issue of Paper Trends, where I am so excited to share my paper in-box :)

Please leave a comment and say hello!
I'll draw one person to win all three of these things next Friday, August 22nd.
I'll also draw a second person to win another of the Bountiful paper packs.
You don't have to be from the US - I'd be happy to ship wherever you live.

Thank you for visiting (and an extra thank you and hugs to those who prayed for my mother)!

the watering can

this is the mini-album that was published in Scrapbook News & Review Issue #4, July 2008.
it reads like a children's storybook:

Once upon a time, there was a little girl who loved a watering can.

She looked so cute when she watered the flowers with it.

She took her task very seriously.
"Uh-oh! Where'd the water go?"
"Mommy! Need more water!"
So Mommy helped her fill the watering can. Again.
She had a brother who she also loved.
Her brother liked to put sticks in the watering can.
He showed his sister how the sticks floated in the water.
They watered the flowers together. And then asked for more water. Again.

scrapbook news and review issue #4

I had a layout and a mini-album published in the new ezine, Scrapbook News & Review, last month in issue #4. I love the way you pay for just one issue but have access to all of the previous ones! Totally can't beat that - amazing inspiration for only $4.99 :)

this is the layout, which I originally posted here:
