BUT WAIT!
Don't go yet!!
I need to give you my blog's secret word! And also, I'd love to share my creations with you and offer my giveaway!! :)

I have several favorite scrappy companies. My list can go on and on. But one that's in my top 5 is We R Memory Keepers. In the past couple years, WRMK has really outdone themselves! They just keep those fabulous collections coming, full of fun themes and colorful designs and images.

Here are some of my favorite projects I created using WRMK products.







WRMK has several new releases in stores now. Two of those are..




Do you love these products as much as I do?? I hope so, because one of my readers can win items from both of these newly released collections!


All you need to do for a chance to win is become a follower of my blog AND leave a comment saying that you did so - easy peasy!! :) One winner will be randomly chosen and announced on Monday the 16th.

And now, my secret word is... "Scrappin-n-Chattin"

Next, head on over to Theresa's blog!

Happy hopping!!

  3. Hi Abby - found your hop through a link Laura posted. :) I love your card style (I don't really do scrapbook pages). I peeked at your WRMK cards and love them!

    It's a brilliant idea to number your Christmas cards so you can keep track... I'm in the negative numbers right now. Haha!

    Cheers,
    Susan
