    I feel like my holiday pages always look the same, so this would be great to have!

    I find scrapping events hard because of what seems to be repetition year after year.

  4. Wanda on February 25, 2011 9:37 am

    I find events hard to scrap, it takes me hours just to decide how to go.

  5. Nathalie on February 25, 2011 10:16 am

    I have a hard time scrapping events because I noticed that the photos are usually not that great! I guess I should focus more on the story and less on the photos? This sounds like a really helpful book! Thanks for the chance!

    I struggle with scrapbooking events–BORING!

  8. Kelly on February 25, 2011 8:58 pm

    I find it hard, especially holidays they all seem to look the same

  9. Heather S on February 25, 2011 11:09 pm

    I find it a little difficult, as I tend to overthink things, so I instead of breezing though, I spend lots more time thinking of what I want to say.

  10. Lorraine on February 26, 2011 5:26 am

    The hardest thing for me is deciding what to scrap because at holidays I always have tons of pictures. Also, I don’t want my page to look like every one I have done every other year!

  11. Debbie Constable on February 26, 2011 8:46 am

    I need help with inspiration when I scrapbook. I like to see how creative other people are!

  12. Debbie Constable on February 26, 2011 8:55 am

    For an extra entry I shared / posted this giveaway on Facebook!

    I have heard such a lot about scrapbooking and it fascinates me. I just don’t know how to get started. I have so many 100′s or even 1000′s of photos so it would really be worth my while in actually learning how to do it before the pile grows much higher. Thanks for this chance to win your book.

    I have always been interested in scrapping, but layout ideas don’t come easily. This e-book would help me get the start that I need so I can preserve my memories from each year!

  15. Sid's mum on February 27, 2011 5:29 am

    Would love to try scrap booking, but just not sure where to start, so hhis would be an awesome e-book!

  16. Lorie on February 27, 2011 11:15 am

    I have a difficult time because I have a tough time coming up with new ideas. Most of my layout look the same.

  17. Emily C on February 27, 2011 11:49 am

    i have difficulty scrapbooking. i have a ton of pictures and usually they just go into an album because i don’t like to sit down and try to figure out what goes best with them. i like things to look prefect and am very choosy.

  18. Kate aka stinkydudette on February 28, 2011 7:33 am

    I find scrapping events a tad overwhelming due to the sheer number of photos taken. Eek!

    I have never been to an event but plan to this year sometime, i have trouble journaling, i usually type out what i want to say, in fear my own handwriting won’t look “professional” enough. I also tend to stay simple with my layouts & would like to get more “fuller” as for as embellishments go.

  21. Michelle B. on February 28, 2011 11:55 am

    I love scrapping holidays and events! Its so nice to reminisce about all these good times and happy events. I find them easy and lots of fun and im always looking for great ideas for them!

  22. Missy K. on February 28, 2011 12:19 pm

    Yes, I would say I have difficulties. I can make scrapbook pages just fine, but the have no pictures on them. I never like photos enough to want to put them on my pages.

  23. Amber on February 28, 2011 3:35 pm

    The hardest thing about scrapping events/holidays for me is narrowing down the pictures! I have like 60 pictures that I want to put on a page and that just doesn’t work!

  24. Ana on February 28, 2011 10:31 pm

    Scrapping is my favorite way to documents memories! It always seemed to come natural for me.
    Good luck everyone.

  25. Joyce Weatherford on March 1, 2011 9:23 am

    As a newbie, this looks great.

  26. irene on March 2, 2011 6:42 am
