Creative Memories

So, as you can see on the side of my blog, I am a scrapbooker. Or, should I say...I THINK I'm a scrapbooker. I LOVE me my Creative Memories nights at Elly's house. But here's the thing. I have 5 kids. And I'm behind...by over a year! But I'm working on it. Elly has at least one "Crop Night" at her house a month, so I try to go. And today, I actually worked on it on my own...at my kitchen table...in the middle of the day! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh...it was wonderful.

I won't stay on my soapbox long, but any of you that are THINKING of scrapbooking - DO IT! My sister-in-law was a crazy scrapbooker. I used to bust on her all the time because she'd have the page done a week after an event happened! On October 11, 2004, Stacey passed away in her sleep very unexpectedly. Her daughter has so many memories in those books as she grows up. So many memories - written in Stacey's handwriting. So as much as I made fun of her, it is such a blessing that she was up-to-date on those books.

Tonight, as I was going through the blogs that I read, one of them talked about a Creative Memories giveaway. It's a magazine that's doing it. A magazine for girls. It's all about becoming a woman of virtue. I love it! And the scrapbook giveaway is Creative Memories...my fav! So go check it out!

I did mention "cleaning up" the water bottle lid from my picture with the Memory Manager software. I do enjoy having it...I don't hvae time to play around with it as much as I like, but I love the clone tool..I erased my dad's hand from a picture one time that I just wanted my daughter in it! pretty neat! I like the way you can organize your photos into folders too have them all organized. It can be a lot of work when you first get it to backlog all the pictures you already have, but once you get it set up it is fun! HTH!

I came off of Growing In Grace Magazine. I am a columnist there, but I saw you leave a comment on the scrapbooking giveaway, and I just love your blog!
Your triplets are so adorable! Your other two children are too! :)

That is so awesome that your niece will have those great scrapbooks to look at! How great!
I love scrapbooking too, but can hardly find the time for it. My Mom sells Creative Memories. So I know your love of it!

Just wanted to stop by and say hello! I will be back because I really enjoyed reading about your family!

Thanks for blogging about the giveaway!
Have a great nite!

Your babies are beautiful! All of your children are!
I am a writer/editor on the GGM site. I am also a CMC. I am so happy that you got to go and scrapbook. It is so important. My girls and I used to do it a lot more. We need to get back into the habit!
Glad you signed up for the contest!
