Ella Giveaway! *Contest Now Closed*

****CONTEST NOW CLOSED! Winner Announced Soon!****
As promised, I have an Ella eBook giveaway for one of my lucky readers!! And if you've been with me any period of time, you know just how much I love the girls at Ella *and* how amazing their books are. This one is no exception. So...

Let's hear it for the girls!

Got girls?
While I don't have one myself, I *am* one and I know many of you out there are mama to some cuties and therefor this book is for YOU!

This handy-dandy guidebook is here to help you make sure you capture all the essentials of who they are—the facets of their lives and personalities that matter most—in between all the holiday and event photos that describe what they do.

The gals at Ella invited five moms of girls (and only girls AND some of my friends!) to brainstorm a list of 20 essential “girly” topics and create stunning layout examples for each. They offered up their best ideas for making their girls’ layouts meaningful, authentic, and unique. And with 13 daughters, ranging in age from 3 to 16, these women know a thing or two about buttons and butterflies, princess costumes and prom dresses. Let's get girly!

Simply leave your name in the comment section below along with why YOU need this girlie book by WEDNESDAY, Sept 1st at 12:00 noon Eastern and be entered to win!

p.s. As some of you might have guessed, Ella also has an Essential Guide for Scrapbooking Boys, too! You'll never guess who might be a part of that! ;) Watch for it in September 2010.

xoxo,

k.

Abby said...

Well, I have 3 boys and my hubby and I thought we were done with kids and just a bit over two years ago our little princess came!! My boys are 13, 11 and 9 and so for 11 years I did not do any pink, no barbies, no girley girl stuff... and now... well, I need all the help I can get!!!LOL
Would love to win this!!!

Arjanne said...

I don't have children, but I have a beautiful niece and maybe 2 on the way (my brother and sister in law are expecting twins and they don't know the gender yet...), so I could use this one!

Aubree said...

How I would love to win one of these books!! I have two girls and one can never have too many idea books!! This one looks amazing!

I have 2 girls too. A little one, and a big one. I NEED this because I seem to find so many really cute boy themed layouts/products, but not so many for girls. I wouldn't want my girls to feel left out.

Amanda Sevall said...

What a great e-book!! I definitely want to see this and the one for boys too!! :)

I would love to have this book. My daughter was just married in June, but I am still scrapbooking (in some cases "re-scrapbooking") pages when she was little. I learned so much from the Ella book of photography tips, as linked through your blog, Kelly!
Love, love, love your designs, Kelly!

Sarah said...

Thanks for sharing Kelly - as a Mum of 2 boys I can't wait for the boy book!!!

Love Sarah xx

Karen said...

Michelle said...

I have two girls, and a HUGE backlog of photos. I didn't start scrapping til they were older!! I would love some inspiration for scrapping little girls!

Scrapthat said...

I NEED this book! :) My little gal is only 22 mos. so I need to know exactly what moments to catch! Even at her young age I have moments I wish I had captured and didn't :( I don't want to miss anymore!!
Thanks so much for the chance to win this!

I would really use this. I have two girls. My oldest just left for college, and my youngest is just starting high school. Lots of things I should scrap!!

Romy said...

I (a Dutch 17-yo girl) don't have children yet, but I do have the most cutest nieces...not just one or two or three of them...no, I'm blessed with 8 nieces and the youngest of them is only 1 month old. Of course they're my favourite subjects for layouts and mini albums. I'm definitely a girly girl and I think you can see that in all my creations too: I'm a huge fan of pink, glitter, flowers and pretty charms... And I think I can never get enough inspiration to make some more innovative girly pages. I can see myself reading this book over and over again.

Thanks for the opportunity to win this! I'll keep my fingers crossed:)

Meghann said...

I don't have children yet, but I'm hoping to have a girl someday! I'd love to win this book!

I would love to win this book as I have 3 beautiful girls and I am about to start a photography course at evening classes and as I will need to practice my camera skills I don't doubt I will have many more girly photos than I have already.

Kelly English said...

I'd love to win because I have so many pictures of my daughter that need to be scrapped! :-)

Dale P. said...

Looks like a great book!! I have two girls and always need new ideas on how to scrapbook them.

Oyendrila said...

I have a 2 year old and she may be the only child I will have. I grew up in another country and my experiences are totally different from what my daughter's journey will be. It would be a great book to have - giving me a glimpse of what to look forward to and what regular or (extra)ordinary day to day things or milestones are important in a girls' life in context to the country she is growing up in. Thanks for making me aware of this book which I believe will be a great source for ideas, inspiration and creativity!

Sanditerese said...

I have two girly girls in my house and hundreds of pictures that need scrapping. I definitely need this book. Thanks.!

Shel said...

I was blessed with a rich man's family...one boy, one girl. My girl has two boys and my son has two girls. I scrapbook for both, but the girls have dance recitals, etc. This would really come in so hand for scrapbooking for my DIL (who is all girl) and her girls....my granddaughters. Thanks to you and your sponsors.

Having a "late-in-life" baby girl (now 2), after 2 boys (ages 14 and 12), this would would be a great to help me with "girly" layouts. Thanks for the opportunity!

Ninny said...

Kelly, I read your blog post that you wrote in 2008 concerning the church bus that was hit by a drunk driver. I was googling the name of a friend of mine, Charles Kytta, whose father, of the same name, was driving that bus and lost his life along with several of your friends. My friend, Charles Kytta III, just lost his life at the same age as his father in a head-on collision this past Tuesday. He was hit by a young driver and at this time authorities aren't sure if alcohol or texting was a factor. He leaves behind a wife and a baby daughter.

Sincerely,
Liz
