celebrate simple week - day 5

the last day of our celebration! i hope you've had some fun and found out where some of your favorite simple scrappers blogs are located. like i said earlier in the week stay tuned because we have something up our sleeves that will hopefully be announced sometime in the next few weeks!
today stacy, wendy, cathy and angie are giving away big prizes! go check it out!

here's a sneak!

final memories..cha

one of the main reasons i attend cha is to get face time with friends, manufacturers, and colleagues in the industry. it's sometimes the only time we get to communicate face to face. cha anaheim in 2008 was no exception. the best part of my trip was connecting with simple gals like melanie louette and linda barber; meeting tina cockburn and the staff of simple scrapbooks magazine. we had so much fun - scouring the booths, eating lunch, telling stories and laughing together. the people associated with simple scrapbooks made the magazine special - their passion and creativity blossomed into this fabulous creation. the people are what i'm going to miss most. hopefully, this new adventure we are embarking on will keep some of us in touch. stay tuned!

todays' prize - the final one - is a dvd loaded with simple inspiration and ideas!

to be entered in the drawing simply post your answer to this trivia question in the comments below. correct answers will be entered to win this dvd!

list the members of the teams that never were - the 2009 simple gals and the 2009 simple ambassadors. remember these ladies embody the simple philosophy be sure to visit their blogs if you are looking for simple inspiration!

you have until midnight on saturday may, 2nd to answer each of this week's questions. be sure to go back and enter for the rest of the week! answer each day on the post for that day. i'll draw winners on sunday morning.
remember to visit stacy, wendy, cathy and angie's blogs today for great prizes!

i'm glad you came and checked out my blog this week. monday i'll return to finding and posting about bits of inspiration from around the web. so come back!
