{growing soon} and a giveaway

I have probably teased and hinted at what’s coming this week 7,839 times now and I don’t mean to pull an annoying-Ryan-Seacrest-on-American-Idol-prolonging-the-results kind of thing or drive you completely batty.  It’s just that we are really excited about this upcoming release and hope you will be too!

Because it’s not “just” a collaboration with my dear friend Crystal Livesay and it’s not “just” templates…we hope it can be something fresh and different; we hope it can be so much more..a kind of fresh adventure for those who want to take it.  Crystal and I have had it on our hearts and minds for some time now, to think of something that not only helps us to create beautiful pages from the heart but that reach out beyond the page to have a tangible touch on our real lives too.

And so emerged Grow With Love, a series of 20 journaling prompts that we hope will encourage you to step out of your comfort zone a little bit, reflect on your relationships and loves, and love a little more deeply and truly.  This is not only a scrap project. This is about changing yourself and your relationships for the better.  Along with the prompts, we have set up 20 templates that you can use to document this process as we “grow with love” together.  You can also use the prompts and templates, alone or together, to simply scrap pages as you’re inspired.  But if you’d like to take a step into a fresh adventure in your scrapping, we invite you to join us as we do the “grow with love” project together.  We will be blogging the 20 day process, beginning next week.

Here’s a peek at the preview and a taste of what Grow with Love is all about…
