Check this out! Ethnic Scrapbooking is named one of the TOP INNOVATIONS in Scrapbooking News for 2007.
CLICK HERE to see the complete list. If you want to know the inside scoop about the scrapbooking industry, Angie Pedersen is the person to go to...noone knows the industry better than she does. I'm not saying that because I made her list, I'm saying that because she was the first author to write an idea book on how to scrapbook about yourself and it remained the only one on the market until recently...she coined the term "The Book of Me"...which I proudly do each and every year about myself.
Here's a bit of history behind some of the layouts in Ethnic Scrapbooking. You will find this layout on page 86 of the book and one I'm sure many can relate too.
I'm just back from a mini-excursion to New York City where I got a huge dose of cultural diversity, but this trip was a bit different because I was with my globe-trekking sister, this was our first time experiencing Manhattan together.
The bit of history/trivia about this layout is that those are actual bottle caps on the bottom of the page (which makes it very heavy and lumpy) which is not a good thing for scrapbooks, so use them very sparingly. When my husband saw me making this page, he finally said, "Well, you've got entirely too much scrapbooking stuff!" To which I replied, "Just like that entire garage full of stuff you have!"
