Scrapbook Expo and the Cozy Days of Summer!

By: Sheila Rogers

From: The Cumberland Creek Mystery Series
Author: Mollie Cox Bryan
Book 3 Title: Death of an Irish Diva

Summer is here! During June and July, we're celebrating the Cozy Days of Summer by giving away a book every day. Today, you can win a copy of Death of an Irish Diva by Mollie Cox Bryan. Just leave a comment before midnight — with your email address so Mollie can reach you — to be entered in today's drawing!



Summer has been great so far—well, after the pie incident (which you can read about in  SCRAPPY SUMMER, ). I spent a whole weekend at a huge convention called the "Scrapbook Expo." I met with some of the vendors, learned a lot in classes, and shopped until my feet and back ached. But it was so worth it. I love scrapbooking and the people involved in it.
I took some photos to share with you.
In the mean time, leave a comment today and win a copy of DEATH OF AN IRISH DIVA.
So much paper, so little time!

But it's not just about the paper!

Lines of people waiting to get in at 7:30 a.m.

Funny t-shirts!


So much shopping !

Embellishments, anyone?

Stamps!

"Nuff said!

  23. My scrapbooking consists of "cut-and-paste" back in the 50s/60s. Maybe I should give this "new" stuff a try - or just make up 3 boxes and pass them on to my boys!
    Book sounds terrific!

  27. I don't scrapbook and considering I work in a craft store the temptation some days is really hard to control. I'm afraid if I start I'll go crazy with it. I have two sisters that are into it and do some beautiful pages...I know that I'm going to cave in one day, LOL.

  33. Scrapbooking seems like a lot of work but if you lots of kids and grand kids I guess it would be worthwhile. My family is way too small for that. So, I will just have to win books to read instead. lkish77123 at gmail dot com

  34. Huh? My comment disappeared before my very eyes! So...once again...I don't do scrapbooking, but the series sounds like a good one to try. Thanks for the chance to win.
