Kimmie said...

ya know everyone keeps saying this is the tool to have...and i dont have it...lol Thanks for the giveaway

Tinker and JingeBear's Mom said...

The story matters, period. And sometimes, to tell that story well, you need to customize your embellishments to match the story. I would love to have an I-top so I can include pieces of fabric from clothing I've sewn. It's more than just the photo of an outfit - it's remembering the texture, the color, the detail. Thanks so much for a chance to win one!

Susie said...

What a fabulous layout ! I haven't seen that tool in the stores yet...but I haven't ventured very far either. I am a firm believer in "my story matters"....that is what keeps me going in creating the books for my daughter. I think being an older mom it gives me some insight that she might find useful one day....as far as being a mother and friend to others.

Christina said...

MAN, I have been dying for one of these

JoanneK said...

That brad is beautiful! A tool that I would love to play with!
