Curled to a Tee (Simple Stories Harvest Lane) and Book Giveaway Winner


Alexa and her best friend couldn't be any more opposite if they tried. Alexa loves dance, her friend plays hockey. Her friend is a bit boy crazy and Alexa still thinks boys are yucky (LOL). One point they do agree on is having fun with hair styles and makeup. Alexa's friend wanted to try out a new styling product so they broke out the flat iron and went to work on Alexa's straight hair. She loved the results and so did I. I'm thinking a bottle of this styling stuff may make it into Alexa's stocking this Christmas. :)

ETA: I created the circle by tracing a dinner plate onto the cardstock, piercing holes along the pencil tracing with a needle, and sewing with embroidery floss.

Now, for the good stuff. :) The winner of the copy of Christina Freeburn's new scrapbooking mystery, Cropped to Death, is:


Congrats on the book, it really sounds fun! My happy place is most definitely the beach!
