Guessing game.

Almost a year ago I started working on a top secret project and teasing you about it!! It's about time to start shedding some light on the subject... I'll give you some hints:

-It is bigger than a cupcake but you can't eat it. Well, I guess you could.
-It has 52 of something but it's not a deck of cards.
-It is full of inspiring and challenging ideas but it's not Sudoku.
-I did an entire page about eating pancakes but it's not a cookbook.
-There is literally a couch at the end of every chapter but it's not at TV guide.
-It has incredible pages designed by women from all over the world.
-It took me hundreds of hours to finish in hopes you will love it.
-It required an awesome team from Creating Keepsakes who put it all together and went above & beyond.
-I couldn't have done it with out Collin's support & pictures of 2 little girlies to scrapbook with.
-In 30 days it's available to inspire you. What do you think it is?
I'll be back later...

Michelle said...

I'm new to your blog, I stumbled across it while reading Nie Nie. Question: As I was perusing older posts, I came across one where you mentioned that you did classes in Hawaii. Having recently moved to Maui and finding little or no scrapping creative outlets, I simply must know--do you still have plans to do anything in Hawaii? I LOVE your blog and am dying to soak up some creativity out here in the middle of the Pacific. If you can spare a minute, visit me at themichellejournals.blogspot.com. I have a feeling we would be good friends if we were ever to meet. Thx. Michelle

EmmaJ said...

You wrote a book!!! How great! I can't wait!
