Hi cheryl, Such a nice giveaway you're having. I'm already a follower of your blog. Why do I cook? Hm, very obvious!! I love to eat good food. Why do I scrapbook? Well, it's for future generations of our family to know their past, but it's also my fun, creative outlet!

Happy Happy Blogabirthday!
Heres to many many more.

I scrapbook, for pleasure, for my family, for my friends, for my posterity, and for fund raising (for a non-profit organization).

Thanks so much for this great giveaway.

Thanks for the giveaway! I cook because it's cheaper and healthier and because I like knowing what goes in what I'm eating, but also because I enjoy the feeling of creating something that I and other people can enjoy!
