The Cover of Scrapbook Trends and a Giveaway

Hi friends! I'm here today to share some big and exciting news! I found out a few days ago that one of my layouts of Mr. Charlie made the COVER of Scrapbook Trends! I was so shocked and surprised!  When I was on the cover of CARDS I was told ahead of time, but this time around I just thought the layout would be in the issue, not on the cover.  But really very cool to be able to cross something like this off of my bucket list.  Here's the cover:

Unfortunately I can't seem to get a bigger picture, but you get the idea!  This cover is the perfect family collaboration in my opinion: my husband Robb took the fantastic photograph, Charlie was the handsome model, and I served as "toddler distractor" to make that picture happen (I'm pretty sure Charlie's looking up at me singing and dancing behind Robb in an attempt to get him to stop playing with sticks so we could get a decent shot haha).

As you can see, last year Charlie was Max from "Where the Wild Things Are" for Halloween....this year he says he wants to be an astronaut! Should be a cute costume as well :)  I'm dreading the days of spiderman masks and totally un-cute boy costumes haha.  I love scrapbooking Halloween so much I must have cute costumes hehe! Speaking of scrapbooking Halloween.....

Now I did mention a giveaway, didn't I?  It's actually TWO giveaways!  Here's the first one:

Yup, that's right- an entire, brand spankin new Noel Mignon kit!  This one is called Evening Stroll and has been sold out, but you have a chance to win it (and who wouldn't want this gorgeous kit?).  If you've been looking for a chance to test out Noel's kits this would be perfect for you.  However, in order to win the kit you must sign up for my NEW Masquerade Mini Album Class and order the coordinating kit from Noel.  And I'm sure you've already done that anyways right?

To learn more about the class and to purchase (for only $10) you can click HERE.  The class is a mini album class showing you really fun and unique ideas for creating your own mini album from scratch.  The lessons are geared towards versatility, so if Halloween is not your thing I'll also be making a light and airy "summer in review" album.  There are chapters on creating your album (from a shipping box), specialty pages (including some fun ideas with vellum, burlap, and paint), mini photo albums within your album, decorating the cover (and making flowers from scratch), and lastly embellishment techniques.  It's jam packed with videos and PDFs and we will have a fun Facebook page to share our projects and ideas.  I'll be sharing some sneaks of the albums coming up shortly but it sure would mean a lot to me if you guys wanted to join in on the fun :)

To purchase the coordinating class kit you can click HERE.  This kit is GORGEOUS and filled with so many fun items perfect for making a one-of-a-kind mini album.  In addition it contains lots of brand spankin new CHA products from some great manufacturers like Basic Grey, MME, Pebbles, Theresa Collins, the list goes on!  With my instruction and this kit you will have an amazing mini album in NO time flat :)

So if you purchase both items you'll be automatically entered to win that amazing Evening Stroll kit :) 

Now my second giveaway will be free access to my class!  Just make sure you're a follower and leave me a comment telling me what part of the class looks like the most fun to you.  I'll randomly choose a winner in a week or so :)

Happy Haunting!
