Cover Girl Giveaway

Fun stuff today. It's Monday and in my book Mondays should be fun. New Valentines magazines arrived over the weekend and I've pulled out my stash of old Valentines magazines too. Victoria used to have the best Valentine issues, don't you think?! You know how nutty I am about my magazines. I've always wanted to make my own magazine and when I found out that I could create a magazine cover, I just had to give it a whirl! You can make one here if you'd like to try it out. It takes about 30 minutes if you have Monday-Morning-Brain like me and it was pretty fun too.

What's your favorite Valentines magazine? Is it a new issue or one of the oldies?
At Christmas time, I gave my family members a little (very little) book that I had made for them. My mom and sister got such a kick out of it that I put together a Valentines book. It's got little family stories and photos that I know they'll like and it's about twice the size as the other one. They don't know I've been working on it so shhhh, don't breathe a word.
Just to make Monday a little more fun, I thought I'd give a copy away. If you'd like one, leave me a comment on this post and I'll draw a winner on Friday (1/11).
P.S. My intention for these photo books has really been just for family gifts, but they are available for purchase here. I don't make any money off of them but it give me butterflies in my tummy to know that someone else actually likes them.
