Hello all Blog Friends! I'm just back from my holiday - more about that tomorrow!
Meanwhile, I've returned to an e-mail from Ella Publishing, about the prize I won in their Most Influential Scrapbookers Award giveaway.
I entered the giveaway on Noell Hyman's Blog on 20th July, but I've been waiting to hear what my prize is. The e-mail was sent 3 days ago, while I was on holiday, so I haven't had the chance to respond yet.
The prize is Two places on each of Two of Shimelle's courses - one for me, one for a friend! The courses are "Love Your Pictures, Love Your Pages" and "Journal Your Christmas". I have actually e-mailed back to ask if I can offer my place on the "Love Your Pictures, Love Your Pages" course to another friend, as I have just done this new course anyway, but I'm pleased to be offered "Journal Your Christmas", as I haven't done that one yet.
Anyway, the long and short of it is.... I wondered which of my Blog Friends hasn't already done one or other of these courses and might enjoy joining in? Once you're signed up, you don't have to do it immediately - the registration will give you immediate and permanent access to all the online materials/prompts etc for that course, via Shimelle's course forum, but you can do the course any time - as I understand it, you could wait until the next "formal" run of the course, then join in with all the new people, so it was a "proper class".
I know that various folks have been busy with "Love Your Pictures, Love Your Pages" and that many of you have done "Journal Your Christmas"... I met many of my Blog Friends through the "Blogging For Scrapbookers" course anyway and I know that lots of you have done other Shimelle courses.
So, Who Has missed either of these courses so far?
Who would like to share my prize?
Please leave me a comment, saying which of the courses you would like to share. I will pull names out of a hat... but please do this quickly, as I need to get back to Ella Publishing asap (she asked me to respond by yesterday, but that wasn't very easy as I was away; anyway, she only gave me 3 days to reply, which I think was a bit unfair, as it took about 2 weeks to contact me about the prize anyway). I want to e-mail the names on Tuesday (!), which only gives you guys the weekend and Monday to respond.
Please comment by Monday night (GMT!) and I'll choose the names at random. There is one place going on each of the two courses and possibly a second on Love Your Pictures, if they will allow me to give away "my" place.
Hurry, hurry! xx
