There is a brand new online scrapbooking magazine coming out this Tuesday, January 15th, called Bella Scraps! I’m looking forward to seeing the first issue for several reasons: 1) As you know, I love scrapbooking inspiration, and I think Bella Scraps will be packed with it! 2) I *believe* there will be an article in this magazine about that secret I have been dying to share with you… 3) I’m pretty sure I will be featured in this issue too :).
If you are interested in subscribing, even for just one issue, I highly suggest you do it BEFORE the first issue is released on the 15th! Everyone who subscribes early will get a special prize package of free digital scrapbooking supplies AND you will have the chance to win one of MANY prizes donated by lots of great designers like Shabby Princess, Meredith Fenwick, Shabby Miss Jenn, Heather Ann Meltzer, Gina Miller, Jofia, the list goes on! Even my Layered Shape Templates are on the prize list :). Click here for more details.

Cool, huh? I’m soooooo happy the Weeds and Wildflowers Site CT made all these great quick pages with the fabulous Wildflower Holiday Collection!! I had planned on making a quick album with it to sell in the store, but I never had time. Now you can get a whole album full of quick pages, AND they’re FREE!! Each freebie quick page is only up for one day, so remember to keep checking back at The Meadow so you don’t miss out on any of the goodies!! OK, I’ve gotta run over there and grab today’s quick page, by Annie, before it’s too late :)!!

I reeeeeeeeally want a Canon EOS 40D Digital SLR camera!!! I LOVE Canon. My parents gave me a Canon Sure Shot point and shoot film camera in 2000, then my husband got me a Canon PowerShot digital point and shoot in 2004, which I broke, so we upgraded to the PowerShot A85, which is what I still have right now. Now, don’t get me wrong, it is a nice camera. But it only has 4 mega pixels, and now that Gabe is a toddler, he’s moving around pretty fast and I’m finding it very difficult to get good photos of him with the camera I have right now. The Canon EOS 40D Digital SLR would change all that!!! I can only imagine the wonderful photos that would grace my scrapbook pages if I had an awesome camera like that. I might even get some shots worthy of framing in all my vacant photo frames waiting to be hung on my bare walls :)! Oh I want that camera soooooo bad!!!
Anyway, that’s why I was so excited to find out about this contest. For each day I enter a digital scrapbook page into the contest, using products from pcLayers.com, I get another “ticket” in the raffle to win the camera. Oh how happy I would be!!! Plus there are lots of other fantastic prizes for the actual contest too! Check it out: Click here to read about the contest at pcLayers.com!
I have been entering a page every day since I found out about the contest, let’s see how long I can keep it up :)! I even won a $10 gift card to pcLayers for displaying their contest blinkie, fun fun! Here is a slide show of the pages I’ve made for the contest:
You should join in the fun too (but if you win the camera, you can give it to me for Christmas, okay?)!

Yay, I’ve reached 100 posts!! What a fun milestone for Scrapbook Ideas!
I love learning about scrapbooking, and I’m discovering new things all the time. My goal here at Scrapbook Ideas has been to share what I learn with the the general public, it’s my way of giving back to a community that has given me so much :).
So I thought a fun reward for my latest milestone would be to hear from my readers for a change! All I’m asking is that you leave a comment on the Celebration Details! page sharing a scrapbooking idea or inspiration. Everyone who participates will receive my latest FREEBIE, Trashy Flowers (click image for larger view), plus you have a chance to win one of the awesome prizes (click here to see the prize list)!
