For the summer issue of Scrapbook and Cards Today magazine, I was assigned the Fancy Pants Brag book and decided to make an album about the summer of 2010 and all the fun adventures we had.
This has turned into one of my favorite keepsakes. I really like everything together in one place, in a compact little album that also has photo pages to add more photos, you know, those silly photos that don't make it on to the scrapbook layouts but still tell stories of amazing adventures, and lines for lots of journaling about it all. It's a fun alternative to the traditional way I scrapbook.
As I was contemplating buzz about albums for a week in the life that Ali is doing, or Smash books, or mini albums in general, I came back to this Brag book and how fun it would be to fill one up again.
Contemplating that made me think of the WWW and a recent thread at Studio Calico about the once elusive Brag Book (but you can now find it here, for one).
I happen to have one right here, and was thinking it would be fun to share the love by giving it away this weekend. And to give you ideas on what to do with it, I thought I'd add a summer issue of SCT so you can see a bit of the innards to the book I made. Yes, Scrapbook and Cards Today magazine, IN. The. Flesh. You did know you could subscribe if you can't find this at your LSS or prefer fondling a hard copy over the online version, didn't you? You can.
So there you have it. I am in the giving mood and wanted to spread the wealth on documenting your life in different ways (you could also try Project 12, hint, hint).
Simply leave a comment on this post about what you are up to these days. Easy as that. I'll leave the comments open and choose a winner first thing Monday morning.
Have a great weekend! I'm taking my girls to a Balloon Festival. I am so excited! Hopefully we'll get to see them launch this year...... Davinie
