I'm a Winner! Scrabble, and Scrapbooks!
I'm just so excited! I actually won a prize from a very special Blogger, Amy Elise Designs! She just announced I won a packet of her famous goodie pack of ephemera! Her sweet and darling son picked my name! Thank you very much, Amy Elise!!!! You've made me smile and smile! I was poking around her Etsy store a week or so ago, and found her wonderful tags for sale, quite inexpensively! Part of my order was a big bag of about 30 of her pretty tags for only $3.00! I've included a picture of some of them. It was my first time buying on Etsy! I also put in an order for some of Frankie's (Blue Moon Studio) lovely paper flowers, again about 12 for $2.50. What wonderful affordable fun! I enjoyed using some of each in the paper bag scrapbook I finished yesterday.
Here are the pictures of my very first brown paper bag scrapbook! I made this at the encouragement of Heidi, who generously sends these out to any one who asks her for one. The other one I pictured last week was made by my daughter, so this is my first attempt. The picture of the cover also has the 3 side insert cards. I thoroughly enjoyed making this album!
Lastly, I've got to help spread the word that there's a new Scrabble dictionary out there! It's the 4th edition. Man oh man, it's got a couple new words in it that are doosies!!! Now, "QI" is a word, as is "ZA". This is big, big news for a die-hard Scrabble player like myself. I'm not sure what else is new, but I'll keep checking. My daughter and I love to play Scrabble, especially our new game Super Scrabble. It has 5 blanks instead of 2, 10 Ss, and we can really score high playing on it! Anyway, get the news out about this new 4th edition Scrabble dictionary! If I come to your house to play, I'll need it!!!! (Or you'll never believe QI is actually a word.)
