Krissy Fossmeyer • What a generous giveaway - thank you for the opportunity to
add some of these goodies to my scraptable!I am very frugal (some may call me cheap). I follow a bunch of
frugal-living blogs, clip coupons, shop sales and do my best to get the
most for our money. I shop for Christmas gifts throughout the year in
order to save money, but still give a gift that looks like I spent a
lot. My husband appreciates my efforts, and I like having a little
extra money to spend on my papercrafts.
~M~ • Something special about me is that at the age of 42 I have
lost everything, and I mean everything that had any meaning to me. All I
have worked for, all I have loved, all I have built in my life,
everything I used to point to as what made me "special"... it is all
gone. Yet I get up out of bed each morning and I face my life with
nothing, and I keep on going, and I keep on trying to build something
Two people will receive a Life Documented Kit, Album and Page Protectors from MemoryWorks.
Elizabeth • Great give away, thank you so much! I think that my son

enjoyer of life

about them- but I'm gonna use it anyway :) ), and I love it.
Meghan Thimjon • Well one
big thing in my life is adjusting to having a lot of health issues, it's
not something I share with everyone and most people probably wouldn't
know I was sick because I push myself as much as I can. I just wish I
had more energy and time to CRAFT! When your brain and body are tired
it's very hard to be creative!!!! Love the giveaway looks like a lot of
Mel • Oh... My... Gosh...... These prizes are *stunning!* Thanks so
much for the chance to win :-) As soon as I read the question my mind went to a song my children
sing at school. The first line is: "I'm special because God loves me..."
I can't improve on that :-)
email@example.com • I am a great documentarian-photojournalist. I have been following sheepherders this month and documenting their

that everyone has a story to tell.

GeneB • Hi Ali, That's a hard one for me this year. So much is happening
(cancer-divorce). So here it goes, what is special about me is that I

iron lady or super women, they say I can survive anything and still
smile(be happy and positive).
Denise R • I'm special because I am Aidan and Colin's Mommy, Brian's
wife and my own best friend!
Katie Pegher • I was blessed with a great singing voice... It was my

incredible task that must have been to gather all together! i would say my current favourite special feature of me is all of the

feel that I join the world through my creativity. I would love any of
these amazing giveaways to help my creativity along...
Michaela • I happen to make the best chewy chocolate chip cookies I've
ever tried (and people seem to agree... maybe they're just being nice).

caitlinmiller • I've learned that having the house clean and the dishes done
and the laundry all put away aren't the things my babies are going to
remember. Its the time I spend with them. Learning to let go of the
desire to be perfect and organized is a battle, and it might not be
"special" but its a pretty sweet lesson for me.
Lisa H. • ooo I

made for them.
