Welcome to the...


The Ella Friends are hosting a blog hop in celebration of Ella Publishing Co.'s newest release:



Life's littlest and most magical moments can be very easy to overlook. But no longer! Elizabeth Dillow and Tina Cockburn are here to help you scrapbook your regular days with simplicity and style.

Join the fun as Elizabeth and Tina tackle 12 unique scrapbooking challenges, creating meaningful projects that look at daily life in a new way. Get inspired to scrapbook everything from the laundry to the library, from your cityscape to a typical backyard scene. It all counts!


I don't think I can tell you how much I love this eBook!  As it says in the description, this eBook is organized around 12 scrapbooking challenges to help you scrapbook your everyday moments in a meaningful way.  It is filled with fresh inspiration and wonderful layouts by two of my favorite scrapbookers.  I'm pretty sure you are going to love it too!

For today's blog hop I have two layouts to share with you.  The first layout I created is based on challenge #6:  Use everyday ephemera to enhance your design.


For this layout I included a list that Gabe wrote last summer.  He wanted to plant a vegetable garden, I suggested an herb garden instead - I do not have a green thumb.  I asked him what we would need to start our garden and this is what he came up with:  water, soil, plants and sun.  I had to help a little with the spelling, but he wrote it all himself.  I thought it was pretty good for a just-turned 4 year old.

The next layout I have to share is based on challenge #12:  Capture a loved one's personality on paper.


I created this layout last fall; the photos were taken just before Nathan turned two years old.  The photos definitely capture a little piece of his personality, his silliness.  I wanted the page to reflect that too and so I chose patterned papers with bright, happy colors and tried to scatter the embellishments about the page in a playful way.

Would you like to win your own copy of this eBook?  Leave a comment telling me one of your favorite everyday memories.  I'll leave the comments open until Tuesday March 22nd, 11:59 pm PST. The winner will be announced on Wednesday.

Next stop in the blog hop is Jenni Hufford.

The rest of the Ella team is also giving away a copy of this eBook so be sure to visit all the blogs in the hop.



Happy Monday & happy hopping.  =)

  8. My current favorite everyday memory is every night as my youngest is heading to bed he asks every member of the family what they are going to have for breakfast. Then he checks in the morning if you actually ate what you said you were going to. Love it!

  11. Looking back over time (my kids are in early 20's now), I loved having them around my feet in the kitchen pushing their little tractor toys. I'm sure at the time it did not seem very convenient to be dodging balers & corn planters, but I love thinking back on it.

    ReplyDelete
  12. It's hard to choose just one of my favorite everyday moments :), but I'd say it's waking my son up in the morning. He's so warm, smells delightful and is so snuggly. He loves to wake up to kisses and hugs.

    Love this blog hop. Looks like I'm going to need a pen & paper to write all these ideas down! Wonderful!

    Thank you for the opportunity to win!

  31. We don't have children, but we do have dogs and cats that keep us entertained. The cats are fairly new, so watching the shy kitty reach out and nose one of our dogs was truly a treasure yesterday!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love snuggling with my grandson as he's getting ready to take his afternoon nap. He's so sweet and loving at that time of day...compared to his rambunctious mornings. Looks like a geat book.

    ReplyDelete
  33. anything that helps me to hold onto the nitty-gritty everyday is good - yesterday I scrapped a laundry list (how many sheets, shirts, etc I washed in a day) with a photo of my washing machine - I'm sure it will give me (and my kids) a laugh in years to come.
