I'm starting to think teacher gifts!

What do you think about these adorable note cards?  I love them and how fun with a cute ribbon tied around them for teacher gifts, friend gifts & just about any gift I can think of when you need just a little something.  I made them on StoryBook plus.

Check out our fun vacation to Palm Springs, CA!

I love StoryBook and what it has done for my life.  Before I was home from vacation I was more than half way done with my vacation storybook.  It took me a few hours at home and then was ordered!  I wanted to share it with you as I love the basic white back ground and then fun new beach vacation digital kit.

New Photo Accordion Cards

Check out these great new cards!!
I love them.  I made one for Lindsey's
5th Birthday which was today. 
Happy Birthday Lindsey.

Thanks to Memory Manager I simply
clicked on my Birthday folder and then cross referenced
my Lindsey folder and found all her birthday photos in a snap. 
Then I clicked on the timeline and found a picture from her
1st birthday, 2nd birthday, 3rd birthday and finally her 4th birthday. 
The card was adorable with all her birthdays represented.
Take a peek and see what you think.  There are many styles to choose from and the price is $3.95.

Would you like to take better photos?

Of course you would!!  We all would.  One thing that has helped me take better photos is hearing Nick Kelsh speak and reading his book below.  I thought you might find this interesting to take a peek at his website and to watch this great video he put together for CreativeMemories.  To watch his video on taking better photos Click Here.  It will be well worth your time.

What's your LOVE story?

Before the house. Before the kids. Before the toothpaste started disappearing twice as fast as it used to... There were two people who fell in love. And maybe that love has changed over time. But one thing will never change - how it all started. Our Love Story Predesigned Pages are the newest in our Ten Questions products making it easier than ever to publish your own love story. Just journal your answers and drop in your photos and your story will be told forever.
This would be a great gift to yourself and your husband. 
It would also be a great way to use up your gift certificate
you might have just gotten with the Simple Start CD.

Love is in the air!

Just wanted to share this fun idea with you. 
This might inspire you to use Storybook Plus
to create one of a kind Valentines
for your kids or those you love.

I took a picture of Lindsey holding a blank heart. 
Then I was able to put the sayings on the heart as I wanted. 
I printed this as a 12x12 page and cut it up ito small Valentines.

This is what it is all about!

As you know we are in between houses living at our cottage.  One of the biggest blessings is that in our old house I had all my albums in my workshop space in the basement.  Well here at the cottage there is no workshop space so my albums are in our main living area.  Guess what has happened?  We are looking at them.  The kids will pull them out and spend time laughing and enjoying our memories.  Troy and I even sat down and looked at our 2009 picfolio album (which by the way is to love the picfolio!)

Last night I found Megan in her bed with her photo album. 
She was reading what I had written.  She showed me a page and said,
"Mom that made me cry when I read that!" 
It was about her heart and how she is so generous. 
It made me realize how important our words are. 
Remember next time you are working on your albums that your words are such a gift. 
Happy Scrapbooking- Sally
