Everyday Storyteller Idea Book Blog Hop!

Welcome to Everyday Storyteller Idea Book Blog Hop!

I am honored to be included along with 32 other inspiring contributors from across the scrapbooking industry who came together to share real world, practical scrapbooking ideas in an essential idea book called Everyday Storyteller.  It's so exciting that this is happening at one of my favorite times of year as well ~ National Scrapbooking Day!

There are crops, challenges, chats, games, giveaways and loads of sales this weekend.  Without a clear plan of action, you could really miss out on activities as well as sales.  Take a few minutes now to peruse Facebook and site forums to get advance information about sales and events for the weekend.  Make a list of the things that you know that you don't want to miss.  It's so easy to get distracted, so if you have a list to ground you, you will find that you have time to shop, as well as  time to jump in and actually scrap some pages with your new supplies!

While you are making your list, be sure to clear your calendar for Friday night!  You are invited to the Everyday Storyteller Launch Party Friday, May 4 at 8:30 pm CDT.  Click on the image below to go straight to the site to sign up to receive your own invitation to the launch party.  There will be over $700 in prizes given out at the launch party, so don't miss out! 

Speaking of prizes, I have one copy of the book to give away!  Simply leave a comment on the identical post on my design blog (click on the Fiddle-Dee-Dee Designs Logo below), making sure that you leave some identifying information so I can locate you via blog, email address or Facebook.

 I'll stop taking comments on May 1, 2012, at 11:59 pm CDT and then I'll randomly select a winner from the comment entries to receive a copy of Everyday Storyteller!

Thank you so much for coming by to visit me!  I've included a list of all the contributors participating in the blog hop.  Be sure to stop by their blogs for additional tips and information (and pssst, prizes).

See you Friday night!
