Book giveaway and picture overload!

Did you all know that Nancy O' Dell is a scrapbooker?? I didn't either, until I was contacted by someone at Creative Memories. CM published this book by Nancy that is all about scrapbooking, and they sent me a copy for myself and one to giveaway to one of my readers. Thanks CM!

Full of Love explores the power of the family photo album to create confident, secure, happy kids. Drawing upon her own experiences and the advice of renowned child psychologist Dr. Kenneth Condrell, award-winning entertainment journalist and TV host Nancy O’Dell shows how photos and albums reinforce family values and traditions, strengthen family bonds, build self-esteem and show children how much they are loved.

Full of Love also features simple shortcuts to creating great albums, including timesaving tips on how to tell better stories, shoot better photos, and take advantage of clever tools and techniques. Dozens of sample album pages are included to inspire you to get started on albums for your children and for yourself.

If you're interested in winning a copy of this book, please leave me a comment on this post, and I will draw a name on November 30th.

Now..... picture time! I went to Cheryl's place Friday night to scrapbook and hang out, and she gave me some photos that she took of me and my little guy when we went to lunch last month. Here are a couple of the ones that she took - I love them!

Halloween time! Introducing Super Girl!
And Harry Potter!

And our little bear (Lucas had multiple costumes, this was the one from Halloween night lol).
Halloween party time.
Some pics from last weekend when we hung at my parents' house.

And some very recent ones from yesterday - the kids and I went on a long walk around the n'hood. It was gooorgeous weather out (low 60's) and the trees are so beautiful. Our neighborhood is about 35 years old, and I just love this time of year since there are so many gorgeous trees in full autumn color.

Right now I have a quiet house after a very full weekend full of fun family time (including bowling in which I kicked my hubby's butt ;-). I'm off to go enjoy some creative time while the kids are sleeping! I'll be back soon with some scrappies :-)

Staci, your kids just get cuter everyday! Lucas' sweet baby smile just brings a smile to my face.
I can tell he fits in nicely with the other two! :)
I am jealous of your beautiful trees changing, my neighborhood is newer and all the trees are 10 feet tall or less LOL
