a share and a giveaway

First, we just wanted to share this 365 page by Maggie Holmes.
Maggie does such great work and this simple spread is no exception. Notice the little details she adds to the journaling cards, right down to the circles she drew around the monogram letters. A couple other "not the norm" tidbits she did to mix things up were to include the "Week Of" card in the last slot vs. the first slot. Also, she used the days-of-the-week word stickers on the photos rather than on the journaling cards and vice versa with the clear days-of-the-week monogram stickers, which she backed with cardstock and used on the journaling cards. FUN!

And second, we just wanted everyone to know that Becky Higgins is doing a giveaway of THREE of the 365 kits on her blog today! So go check it out!
