Our First Give away!!

Cover of Lyla's book 
We are a group of 6 creative women and this is our blog.  We love creating and want to share with our readers some of our creativity so have decided to have a give away.  Our newest member is Lyla.  She is the sister of long time member Karen.  Lyla actually lives too far away to attend our weekly meetings but she has joined from a distance and participates in our trades.  She is a talented paper crafter and loves to make altered books.  This altered book is our first give away, created by Lyla.

There are 30 pages of varying sizes, plus the covers.

To enter our giveaway, please leave a comment on this post.  Make sure we have a way to contact you in case you win.  We will pick a winner on March 1st at our meeting.  It will be a random choice, we will pick your name out of a hat.  If you are already a follower you will get two chances, or if you sign up as a new follower that will give you a second chance. 

We will be having several more give aways, one from each of our members, so keep watching this space.  Good luck!
