Can you help?

Southern Cross Kids Camps are asking for our help in creating memory books for abused and at risk kids. Basically they're after very simple 6x6inch layouts with room for a standard 4x6 photo. See here for more info.

I got busy today and made about 40 pages just using up my scraps! They're so simple they didn't take long at all. I'm also happy to be sending them lots of ribbons, brads and letters from my stash for the kids to get creative with. Here are most of the pages I did today. I love to use up my stash and when it's this simple, and for a fantastic cause, I couldn't be happier! Want to join me? :D

I am so inspired by this! When I first read your email my brain went straight away to my stash and thought of all the stuff I knew I wouldn't use but didn't know what to do with!! I have made 6 pages already (I could NEVER keep up with your 40 in one night!!).. so thanks for the heads up on this one, I'm so loving using up some stuff and knowing that it's going to a good home!

BTW my security word is "Borsurfa" which I think is how they say Boardsurfer out west ;)
