New Rules...

New Rules #1
2 year olds are not allowed to eat milk chocolate bars on the couch.
I will add more later...
A few months ago I shared with you our debinking of Lily story...I finally put it to paper. I admit I love to scrapbook for some very silly reasons...the pretty papers, alpha stickers, playing with really is the grown up version of collecting Mrs. Grossman's stickers.
Today I am grateful for Scrapbooking! As I reread this sentence, I realize that may sound ridiculous, but scrapping these photos makes me write these stories and moments down and I would never be able to remember them all. I really love this craft/hobby! I numbered the photos and in my journaling I put the corresponding anecdote.

I wanted to let you know about a few things...
May Arts:
Plaid contest! Make a project using plaid somewhere.. May Arts will provide you with the ribbon of your choice...
Winner will have the chance to be a guest blogger and 3 spools of ribbon...winner's choice.
And 10 runner ups get a spool of their choice! (burlap string...hint hint) All the info is HERE.

Pink Persimmon:
New release!! Yep 2 new Christmas releases and they are spectacular.. In fact they were created by a favorite blogger/designer of mine, Cathe Holden of Just Something I Made.
Wanna win the new stamp sets? Click on over to Cathe's blog and leave her a comment! If you just want to order your sets ASAP, click on over to the Pink Persimmon web site.

Epiphany Crafts:
Will be in Sacramento this weekend at the Scrapbook Expo...go check them out, try out the punches and button makers...they are wonderful and trust me you will want your very own.

Purple Cows:
Is having a generous giveaway! If you have a Purple Cows laminator, you are going to want to see THIS!

This is so great! And you are right about how scrapping keeps the memories that would otherwise be lost! (too bad I'm so behind I've probably forgot more than I'd like to admit!)
