So, Simple Scrapbooks is having a contest:
"Put It in a Letter" Page Contest
Help us celebrate Universal Letter Writing Week by posting a letter-themed layout in our online Reader Gallery during the week of January 21-25. What do we mean by "letter-themed layout" Write a letter to yourself, your spouse, your child, your friend, your mother, your brother, "anyone"and use it on a scrapbook page. Use the keywords "Universal Letter Writing Week" in the comments so we can find your layout.
At the end of the week, Elizabeth Dillow, author of The Scrapbooker's Almanac, will select five favorite layouts and announce them in the Reader Gallery. Each winner will receive a copy of Elizabeth's book and one grand-prize winner will also receive a cool letter-writing kit from Elizabeth.
Only layouts posted January 21-25 will be considered official entries. Post as many letter-themed layouts as you like. No purchase necessary.
So, I made this layout:
That frame was something I got in my Trash to Treasure swap at SIStv. I thought is was soooooooooo ugly, but I wanted to make something rock star cool out of it. So, I doodled all over it and then added buttons. I'm not sure if it's rock star cool, but it is totally funky! So, I'm happy!
Finally, I just got my "Big Bite" in the mail today! I haven't really had a chance to play with it, but it is pretty awesome so far. I have long been sad that my Crop-a-Dile only reaches an inch or less into anything. The big bite has a six inch reach! So cool! And, it sets these things called "gromlets." They're not eyelets or gromets, but something in between and so very, very cool! This is the first time I've ever ordered from the Home Shopping Network and at first I was a bit embarrassed. But, I'm glad I did! I'll try to post something that I make with the Big Bite soon!
Thanks for stopping by!
