No words can express our shock and disbelief that you're gone.
No words can express our gratitude for knowing you.
No words can express the love you showed while here....not just your love, but God's love.
No words can express the imprint you left on the hearts of every person you ever met.
No words can express the emptiness we now all feel.
No words can express how much you are loved.
No words can express how much you are missed.
(if you didn't know our friend and creative genius, Debbie Williams, it's impossible to describe her....we just ask that you keep her family in your prayers - husband George, daughter Nan, and son Will, sister Susan, and the rest of her amazing family - thru this difficult time....and that you do something for someone close to you, just to make them smile...in honor of Debbie...because you never know when they will be gone)

Meet Eric Erickson. Who's Eric??
We're excited to say that Eric is the newest member to the Keller's Design Team!!! He's cute. He's funny. He's smart. But, best of all, he's an amazing scrapbooker!
We met Eric this past weekend at the Create N Crop event in Perry, GA. I kept hearing people say " have you seen that guy's scrapbooks? They are sooooo cool"....but I was busy teaching & working our booth with Keller that I didn't make it over to take a look....so a customer went & grabbed one of his scrapbooks & brought to me to see....OH MY! The first page made my mouth drop open...I may have even stopped breathing for a minute. I sat right down and went thru each page. Touching. Reading. Trying to take in all the details. I was amazed by the photos and how he uses them. I lifted flaps & hidden pages. I laughed. I cried. Isn't that what a scrapbook is supposed to be?
After I made it thru the album, I marched over & introduced myself....even though he & Keller had already become friends & Keller had told him about me. I then enjoyed his other scrapbooks he had on display. Within minutes of talking, I asked him to design for us...and he said YES!!!!
Why was Eric there? Just to meet fellow scrapbookers. Just to inspire fellow scrapbookers. Just to see what this industry is all about. He's scrapbooked for years & years, but has finally decided he wants to see & do more in this great industry. He does have a fun website, blog, and videos where he shares his amazing scrapbook techniques & ideas. And, now he will be doing stuff for us, too! Oh, happy day!!
OK, so how does this tie into our Fabulous Friday Giveaway?
We want you to get to know Eric. We want you to learn from him. Be inspired by him.
So, to do that, you need to go to his site & cruise around it & check out his blog. Here's the link:
Then, tell us your favorite page of his that's shown on his site. Tell us why. Is it the fun play on words in each of his titles? Is it the way he uses photos in the most unique ways ever? Is it his journaling...not just what he says but that handwriting?!? (geez, I can only dream of writing like that) Is it all the stitching he uses on paper? Oh, so much to see and learn.
Tell us what you see & like. Post a comment here or email us....we really prefer comments here so everyone can share. We will choose 3 lucky winners this week....each will receive a $20 online gift certificate from Keller's!
Cool, huh? Meet an amazing scrapbooker. Check out his layouts. Win a gift certficate to shop for free. Fabulous Friday, indeed.

So, to win these pretty colors of paint...tell us your favorite story involving painting...whether in your scrapbook or painting your house...anything! Did your child try to help you and end up making a mess? Did your dog step in paint and track it all over your house?
I guess my story would have to be that I let my 7 year old daughter paint a plaster figure she got from the store. When I came to check on her, she was tired of painting the figure and had covered her hands in paint and kept sticking her hands together...what a mess!
So, share your story with us...remember, we'll have 2 winners this week!
Have a great weekend!
