Tracie found my blog post about using Children’s books as a source of design inspiration and she send me the best message I’ve EVER had on Facebook.

“Alice!!!!! I’m about to scream with joy reading your blog! Your design inspiration from children’s books is AMAZING!!! Would you be interested in being a guest on the Scrap Gals and us doing a whole show about it????” – Tracie Claiborne

So, after I stopped squealing with excitement, I said YES!!! (of course)

Scrapbooking Pro Tip: If your journaling tells the SAME story as your picture... what is the point? Tell the story BEHIND the photos instead!

You can pin this image too! Click HERE.

My favourite childhood books I mentioned:

The Animal Storybook by Suzie Siddons Illustrated by Rowan Clifford

This Can’t be Happening at McDonald Hall by Gordon Korman

Nancy Drew series by Carolyn Keene

Geeky fact that may break your heart:

Did you know that there was no real Carolyn Keene? It was a pen name and the books were written by several authors. I was DEVASTATED to find out!!! Okay, I totally apologize if I just broke your heart!

The new class that I mentioned:

SCRAPBOOK YOU! is now a self-paced class! Get more information HERE.

    i like how you linked the stuff you talked about on the podcast. very handy. i also had many of the disney records, stories. “you can read along with me in your book. you know it’s time to turn the page when you hear the chimes ring like this”…in fact when i worked in childcare i got those disney stories & tapes at yard sales, & let the kids listen to them during their playtime. it was also interesting to hear about how your experience with LOAD & scrap happy. 🙂
