World Book Night ~ 2013 Giveaway

World Book Give Away!!
April 23′ 2013
Spreading the Loveof Reading!
I have the honor of being one chosen in my state to do just this. give books away for free! I want to share this with you all because you may not be aware of this wonderful way of advocating reading. One of the aspects of this project is you choose who you are going to give the books away to.
I chose a demographic & area of my small town to distribute the books  which is is our homeless teenager population and the place for my giveaway is where they gather to socialize and trade important street navigation tips (how to live homeless as a teen)
My thoughts are this is group that because of personal circumstances and economics these children are missing out on a necessity no one can afford. Reading. It is not a luxury.
On April 23rd I will be distributing the books to teens, asking them only to pay it forward by sharing their book when finished. And asking the same request to follow the book.
I am asking you my beautiful pe3ople is only that you inform yourself about this fine program and spread the word. The link is below, take a few minutes or more and find out how easy it is to participate. Because you are a blogger here at WordPress I know you are a lover of words, I challenge each of us to spread that love of reading words however possible.
I’d love more creative ideas myself on how to accomplish this, this program is a wonderful example. Reading is a gift we give ourselves,this is true. I love the idea promoting the activity of reading in any way I can. The escape and the knowledge that books give us is priceless. I would like everyone to know the freedom that comes with escaping to a different time, a different land, or a different universe. Its endless.
That’s the magic of reading.
 Thank you so much for your time and attention

5 Random Facts About Me

ANOTHER SCRAPBOOK LAYOUT.   THIS WAS DONE  ALMOST 2 YRS AGO. 

5 Random Facts

This layout is about me.  The story teller, the mom, the grandparent, the sister and the wife.  Scrapbookers, story tellsers, photographers, family historians are all fabulous story tellers about other people.

Can you imagine what your future generations in your family is going to think about th person who wrote  documents all the dates, told all the story’s and knew who all the rpeople were in the photo graphs. But who was that person?

This layout was a challenge for me, by  a well know scrapbook design team member and an artist;   Miss Stacy Julian.

Stacy challened the story teller in me to tell a short story about myself. There are obvious missing links in my memory, scrap and altered  books about our family.  ME!   This was the whole point behind the challenge.  Do you all know how hard it is to write something, somewhat meaningfu,l about yourself?   Even with a prompt I still struggled.

This is 5 Random Facts about myself. 

Now my turn to challenge you. Tag, you’re it!
