we interrupt this program ...

I have been an avid reader since I was a kid. My mom used to send me off to school on Friday morning with a blank check (gasp!) because that was the day the Book Mobile came to our school. Whoa, did I just date myself or what? Although I spend more timing reading books electronically now, there is nothing better than cracking open a brand new book from Barnes & Noble ... the smell of the ink, the crispness of the paper ... nirvana packed into hundreds of pages. So what does any of this have to do with scrapbooking, you ask?

I have a dear scrapbooking friend who is loaded with papercrafting talent. She's a busy mom, a devoted wife, a keeper of all things sacred, and bakes a mean chocolate chip cookie. Where in her busy life she found time to write a novel is beyond me. But she did. And it is one of the most beautiful, captivating, well-written stories of hearts that are lost and found again, relationships that are restored and hurts that are mended, all interconnected by a scrapbook.

Truly, this book captured me. And that's saying a lot from someone who is a diehard Dean Koonz abnd James Patterson reader.

Stop by the blog tomorrow, where my friend and I will be hosting a dual sketch contest, where the prize will be a copy of her extraordinary book (and a scrappy one she wrote, too!), along with a copy of Scrapbook PageMaps 2 and some BasicGrey wonderfulness.

See you tomorrow!

I have a library in my house FULL of books and basically ran out of room for hardback books. I got my first kindle 2years ago and never looked back! I still read a hardback book occasionally, but not very often.
