Frugal Scrapper Extraordinaire:)

For those of you who have been following my blog, THANK YOU, I'm still here and as FRUGAL as ever. I'm just expanding my blog title to further reflect my "altered" muse. I'm still the same (sometimes goofy) FRUGAL SCRAPPER that I've always been and will continue to focus on FRUGAL papercrafting projects:)

ProLiteracy - An ABC Book for Charity

Hello All:

I participated in a project for charity that involved making two alphabet books which are now being sold on Ebay. The funds raised from the sale of these books will be donated to ProLiteracy.

This is the page I created for the upper case book. The books are geared to children just starting to read.

Reading and writing are part of our creative scrapbooking, card making and journaling.

Using our passion for scrapbooking we hope to unlock the power of literacy in someone else’s life.

In the United States, 30 million people over the age of 16 - 14 percent of the countries adult population - don't read well enough to understand a newspaper story written at eighth grade level or fill out a job application.

There were over 100 applications to help make the books and over 50 crafters make two books, one is an upper case book and the other a lower case book.

Each page is unique and individual and is signed by the person who created it.

We are auctioning both ABC Books on Ebay and a brand new Mary Jane alphabet.

The links are below:

Tis the season for giving....

Happy Holidays!
