I picked up a copy this weekend for my Mom at Barnes & Noble. I have not had the time to sit down, relax, and read it from cover to cover, but I am making my way through it page by page. So far, it is amazing. Here's what CK has to say about the book:

Here is a little sneak from the book of one of my layouts:
This layout was one from my HOF entry. I used it as a "favorite" layout where we were able to choose 4 of our favorite unseen layouts as a part of our entry. This layout was done when I was going through a hybrid stage. I printed the title, journaling, and the star design along with the patterned paper. I then added my paper scrapping skills to finish it off! I still love this layout, but it is not my favorite one from the book. You'll have to buy a copy to see that one...I can't reveal everything, ya know! If you do pick up a copy, you will know which one was my favorite because Lisa Bearnson liked it, too. She liked it enough to scraplift it...how cool is that?
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
