We do these type of contests for fun...to give you a silly reason to scroll thru our blog...to learn more about us & our products along the way. We don't really care what the question or the answer is...we want you to enjoy the process....just like our approach to classes & scrapbooking as a whole. Enjoy the journey, regardless of how it turns out. We give you a silly question & have the answer in a blog post, even if it's not the CNN or Google answer. On this one, our local news said we rec'd 17" in one day...obviously more over the 3 days that we were affected by the storm. So, we got answers from 17" to 27", with some down to the hundreths of an inch. We appreciate the effort of your research...but you don't need to look far to answer any question we ask...just head to our blog...enjoy the sites along the way to the answer you're sent to find...then cross your fingers that we draw your name!
Hope that helps explain this past contest a little better.
Now, on to the 3 winners...
Each of you has won a $10 gift certificate to our online store! Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org by 9-30-08 to claim your code.
Thanks to each of you who participated...and the lucky 3 who won. Each of you, stay tuned...as you know we'll do something like this again soon!!!

What a cute Trick or Treat card!
You can use this card as an easy template for any season or occasion...all by using your 'leftovers' from layouts...a strip of paper, 1 ring left from our Rings pk (27 per pk), a strip from our Tag Wraps, a snip of ribbon, & some eyelets. Oh, but don't forget the fun stamps!! These are from our new Circles set.

I'm not alone in knowing someone who is fighting this disease.
I'm not alone is missing someone who was taken too early because of this disease.
I'm not alone wishing I could make a difference.
This weekend, please go to www.standup2cancer.org and give.
We will be giving $1 from every online order this weekend as we STAND UP 2 CANCER!
Use the XL square slide mount in this layout to bring attention to the focal point of a 5x7 or 6x8 print. You'll love this idea! You can add 1 photo to the Connector Liner, or 3 small ones as shown - depending on how many pix you need to fit on the layout.
Our solid Connector Liners create this page. Just do the mirror image of this for the 2nd page. This layout can be done over & over, just using different colors.
Getting lots of photos on a page is easy with this layout! Just use lots of tags across the bottom of a page...and continue to a double page spread for even more photos. Stacker circles are used at the top. Just stamp your title for any themed page you like.
Remember, you can order these kits on our site...or order the pieces in our Mix & Match Collections to pick your own patterns. Use our sketches for fast layouts...and send us pix of your creations. We'd love to show them off for you!

Thanks, too, to my great staff for traveling all over this country with me. David & Lori set new record numbers of make & takes in a day! Kathy, Deb, David, Mason, Tracy, Lori, Kristy, Jillian, and Carol ---THANKS for carrying me thru the month!! And, Deb, I'm so sorry the booth fell on you....I promise, that's not our usual way of welcoming new employees! And, Catherine, I can't thank you enough for your endless efforts on the homefront while we're gone.
And, to all of our customers, I can't thank you enough for letting me continue along this amazing journey. The overwhelming support & praise & sheer delight in our products & our classes are priceless gifts to each of us who work so hard to make it happen.
While on the road, tropical storm Fay decided to make an unwelcomed visit to our hometown of Thomasville, Ga. This is what 17 inches of rain in one day did to our town...
So long, August.
