Karen I am fluttering excited, this is BEAUTIFUL!!! I would sooooooooooo love to get my hands on one of these, crossing my fingers! Have a great weekend!

That album is beautiful! Of course, your gorgeous photos help too.
Keep your chin up. I hope you see the "light at the end of the tunnel". Keep striving for it. Try to look at the little things you are doing well. Concentrate on one little thing at a time. I'm betting that you are doing more things well than you think. Sometimes we need to look at all the little pieces of the big picture.


I love love the album! You have a style I want to adopt! Thanks for all the great ideas. ~Heather

Julie (in England)

Have been in a creative slump, and I think this kit is just the thing to bring me out of it!! It's gorgeous!

Aimee Baruch

What a totally gorgeous album! And how sweet of you to offer the giveaway to your blog readers. Even if I don't win I might have to buy one of these. Thanks!



GORGEOUS...would love to get one. Looks like awesome Christmas gifts...hmmm

Have a great weekend.


This is so beautiful .. My daughter is expecting (my 1st grandchild)... This would make a wonderful display with "new baby" photos.


I'm loving it!!
So SMART with black and cream only - and it's all so tasteful and pretty - so of cooourse I want to be in the drawing! (If I may - being from Sweden & all?) :D


OK...I'm in! LOL!
Love the way it turned out!
Have a great weekend!

I'm the very pregnant lady who loved your Ohio classes. This project is the best I've ever made! I'm completely in love with it, and agree that it would make a great Christmas present. Your line is my favorite, and I hope your presentation went successfully! Best of luck!

Kay Ward

What a wonderful album, I would love to be in the drawing. I am still so excited over the new products coming out and can't hardly wait. You are such an inspiration, Karen. Thank you for all you share with us in your blog.


All the things you design are just wonderful...hope that the meeting went well.

This is just about my favorite kit yet. Thanks for taking the time our of your insanely busy life to put together another fabulous one.

Terri Barton

What a FAB album! You continue to amaze me! Here I am at home (kids are out of house) alone, husband at work, I have been laid off, and I am not getting 1/8 of the work you are getting done. I think you are doing JUST FINE! And if you put Annie in daycare a few days a week or hours everyday it will be good for her and you! Not selfish but good! Don't beat yourself up, everything changes, and even though you now "work from home" you still need to have time to work! Take care and I want to win the drawing!!

Andi M

Karen, that album is absolutely gorgeous!

Tammy Rasmussen

Hi Karen! I have been reading your blog for a few months now. I stumbled upon it while I was googling scrapbook ideas and I really think it was faith. I just love reading all your thoughts and seeing all of your beautiful photos of your family. I have a daughter that is 14 months old and your Annie reminds me so much of my Emma!! I have been struggling to put together a scrapbook that reflects all that she is. I love all of you ideas and I love your new kit! You are so creative and always keep me laughing, even after I've had an exhausting day of being a mom! Thanks!

Carolyn Hall

Who wouldn't love the album, the papers are gorgeous. Can't wait to get a kit.
