I have been so inspired lately by just about everything around me. It’s made me want to scrapbook even more than usual – Which is really good for me since I have taken over 2000 pictures this summer.  When I scrapbook, I need to fit as many photos as possible onto a layout so I can scrap my favorite memories of this summer.

We asked you to submit 10 photo layouts both here on our blog and also in our online gallery of pages. And boy did you deliver! You created layouts about special occasions, everyday life and anything in between. Here are four pages we’d love for you to vote on as your favorite. The winner will be published in an upcoming issue. It’s really simple!

Here’s how to vote: check out our survey, look at the pages and pick your favorite. You can vote as often as you like. The page that gets the most votes will be featured in our January issue.  That’s it–pretty easy!

But you don’t have to wait till the issue is published to see if your voting efforts paid off.  We’ll show you the winning page here on the blog on Thursday, September 3rd.  A special sneak peek for you, our blog readers. Thanks for your votes. May the best page win!

P.S. And now for the moment most of you have been waiting for. In an earlier blog post, we were giving away a Tamron lens to one lucky reader. We received 550 comments as entries to the giveaway (WOW!) and we’re thrilled to announce that Kristyn G is the winner of the lens. Kristyn, please email us at with your contact information. Congratulations and thanks to Tamron for such a wonderful giveaway.

I really enjoyed Ali’s Studio A this month. I think we sometimes forget to document all of the aspects of our lives as moms, wives, professionals, daughters, and sisters.
And that lens is amazing! My standard lens doesn’t always focus properly (that’s what happens when the strap comes undone and your precious DSLR hits the tile floor–uugghh!!) so this lens would be a VERY welcome addition to our house!
