Spreading a little joy

About this time last year, I had just finished a few layouts that meant a lot to me. I was so excited to see those pages in print along with many other inspiring pages in Elizabeth Kartchner's just-released book '52 More Scrapbooking Challenges'.



The bright cheerful book with the creative challenges is sure to make a scrapper's heart sing. I remember when Elsie Flannigan's 52 Scrapbooking Challenges came out, I was just starting out and how I pored over that book. It is such a joy to have my pages included in this 'sequel' by Elizabeth. If you love experimenting with techniques, you'll love this book. If you crave for more than simple, clean lines, you'll love this book. If you need inspiration (I know, I do), you'll love this book.

So, how would you like to win a copy of this book?
Leave a comment here by the 6th and I'll draw a name on the 7th.
