"Fast & Fresh Scrapbooks" Giveaway!
(If you left a comment, don't panic if you don't see it below. Blogger is very behind on publishing your comment but I can still see it!)

Before I get to the contest, I just want to thank each one of you who left a "mom" tip. I loved reading them and learned a lot!

I had a wonderful Mother's Day. Here we are on our favorite spot--the trampoline--at my sister-in-law's house. Check out my hand-painted necklace from Sage!!

After the photo, Collin about took each one of us out as he steamrollered over the top of us!

Also, had to share a few more of my favorite photos from this week. As we were weeding in our yard on Saturday, just check out what Collin and his friend discovered under a bush. Purely joyful. I'll for sure take pictures if they hatch!

We also went to a lovely wedding reception on Saturday night. This is our neighbor, Maile, and her new hubby, Michael. The Bearnson's have quite the history with Michael's family, but that's for a later time.

Sage was a flower girl and these gals were part of the wedding party.

I'm one of the camp directors for our congregation's girls camp this year. This is kinda an embarrassing photo but Marta and I did a skit where we acted like Hans and Franz and we were there to "pump the girls up" for girls camp. The theme for this year is iStrong and it turned out to be a lot of fun even if we did look really stupid! I've never seen Hans and Franz before and everyone said my accent was a little European, Scottish and Utah-English mixed!

Okay--now for the amazing contest. I just got the Creating Keepsakes "Fast & Fresh" special issue in my mailbox and it's simply amazing. Trust me--this 124-page book is filled with simply hot layouts and mini-albums ideas.

Let me share one of my favorites:

Gretchen McElveen cleverly makes this ringed tag book with memories from a recent Disney trip. She packed her entire trip into this album and also teaches how to make an album cover from a photo.

Her consistent page design makes this album a cinch.

So--three of you are going to win a copy of Fast & Fresh Scrapbooks. Simply tell me one happy thing about your Mother's Day and I'll randomly choose three winners on Thursday. Here's some more good news. You can get a 20% savings on Fast & Fresh Scrapbooks until May 31st when you go here and order the special issue. Make sure you use the promo code FAST-BLOG.

Thanks for playing!


P.S. Our phone call from Kade, yesterday, was the best! He is happy, healthy and has definitely matured!
