ella giveaway

Got girls? This handy-dandy guidebook is here to help you make sure you capture all the essentials of who they are—the facets of their lives and personalities that matter most—in between all the holiday and event photos that describe what they do.

Ella invited five moms of girls (and only girls) to brainstorm a list of 20 essential “girly” topics and create stunning layout examples for each. They offered up their best ideas for making their girls’ layouts meaningful, authentic, and unique. And with 13 daughters, ranging in age from 3 to 16, these women know a thing or two about buttons and butterflies, princess costumes and prom dresses. Let's get girly!

p.s. Ella has an Essential Guide for Scrapbooking Boys, too! Watch for it in September 2010.oh and someone you *know* might just have a layout or two in the book!
leave your name and tell me whether you have boys, girls, both or none! :) i'll draw a winner for a free copy of this ebook on friday morning!
