Bic Mark It Winners & using text as a page element

Okay, I have to say... I may do a giveaway every day if I get to read awesome comments like the one on this contest! It made me smile so big to read every one of them... most of you I have had some sort of interaction with, either online or in real life, and it was like a big get together of friends. Thanks for the comments, guys! :)

On that note, I truly wish I could give each one of you a set of these markers, but alas, earwax. (If you know me well, you'll know where that quote comes from.) I used random.org to generate two random numbers, and I drew:

Nat G.!



Please email me at 2blackflipflops at gmail dot com with your mailing address, and I'll send it to Bic to send you guys your markers! :) Congrats!!!

For those of you who didn't win, there's a LARGE variety of these markers on Amazon, and you can buy them in smaller sets if you want to try them out first. Trust me when I say that you won't regret it!

This week on the Noelmignon.com blog, I talked a little bit about how using text/journaling on a layout can be a design element in and of itself. Here's my sample layout, using the Bic Mark Its, and the new Dear Diary kit (3 left!).

I wanted to scrap a few of these pics I took on the way to get Emerson from school the other day. It's our daily routine to walk with some friends of ours and pick her up, and I know I'll want to remember these days.

Journaling: Every day, we leave at 10 'til 3 to go pick up Em at school. We park in downtown Leeds. I unload the double stroller, Sabs & Ari get buckled in, and away we go. Atticus finds cool sticks. We crunch through leaves or splash through puddles. We meet up with Kim & Lida B., and wait for Em & the Hill boys to come out. Atticus & Felix & Sabs run around like crazy. Em hugs Kaylie goodbye, and it's off to home. Our daily routine. Fall 2010.


  1. Thank you so much. You cannot believe how happy I am to be a winner. It made my day.

  2. OH how exciting! What a wonderful surprise, I never seem to win anything - and my birthday is WED, so this is the perfect thing for my birthday. I'll email you my address ASAP, thanks so much again!


I'm so glad you decided to leave me a comment today! Thanks for taking the time to stop by my little corner of the world. :)
