    Ali,
    I so enjoy checking your site everyday. I truly love how you share so much and provide such inspiration... I received my Shutterfly books made after you shared the "10 Reasons I love you" book from Freckle Photography. I can only say :WOW! I would have never though of doing those in a million years!I am learning to use more of your Designer digital elements, and as always because you share so much, the scary part totally dissolves...
    Hats off to you and heartfelt thanks for sparking the love of scrapbooking and everyday blessings.

      Oh I'm so glad you did that book! I'm hoping to do one for each of my kids for Valentine's Day :).

    Thanks for these reminders of what's in our "digi" stash:)

    I'm in the midst of a big purge in my home office, and finally went through the last of my saved CK magazines and donated them to our library. Very few pages were ripped out, as I'm realizing I have inspiration enough & just need to get busy telling our own story...but one page moved me to create---an old layout you did called "Remember me". Different photos of you and Simon and journaling of the different ways you want him to remember you. I know such a page from my own mother would have been priceless, and that your layout said directly what so many of mine are really about. Thank you for sharing it.

    Thanks for the inspiration, Ali.

    Just wondering, is there an alphabet that's done in a handwriting style, similar to Little Bit of Messy Love?

      One of my favorite places to get printed transparenices is from Hambly: http://www.qbaroo.com/HamblyScreenPrints/categories.cfm?type=0&categoryoid=2

      Online scrapbook stores also carry a variety of printed transparencies.

      I get ink jet transparencies from office supply stores for home printing.

    Thank you for the recap. I made the 2008 'I love you' mini-book back in 2008 as part of your weekend creative.
    This year I using your LOVE YOU BECAUSE' digital kit to create a mini-book for my husband. Also have plans to do one for each of my boys too, although maybe not in time for Valentines Day. Thank you for always being so inspirational.

He is away at the moment & will love getting this in the mail from us.
