I love La and she needs YOUR help! Shop with La, Win With Me!

Hi there, scrappy friends. One of my fave designers and digi-friends is in the hospital with a serious condition and she needs our help. Most of you know the fabulous Lauren Grier. Many of you also know that she is an AMAZING single mom to the mose precious little boy and that she supports her little family with her digital designs. Well, because she's so ill, she can't design right now. No designing means no new kits which means very little new income for her. We just can't let this happen. I encourage you, no, I BEG you to head over to her PERSONAL store at Scrapfastic Designs and pick up some of her amazing goodies.

I'm so lucky to be a member of her creative team, and my pages using her kits are among my absolute faves of all time. As a designer, I ADORE her Commercial Use items. Really, every single item in her store is amazing, and I promise you'll love whatever you buy.

I'd like to give a little added incentive (I hope!) to shop with her today. Head over to her store and buy a few little things. Then come back here and tell me what you bought. For every 5 people that post here, I'll chose 1 at random to win a $10 GC to my store at 9th&Bloom. No limit on winners. So, you shop with La, you win with me. Now, get busy shopping!

You are such a wonderful person Jennifer! I was intending on shopping La's CU templates this weekend anyway. I bought:

*doodle me stitches
*layered up in you circles
*layered up in you circles 2
*layered up in you frames
*layered up in you scallops
*layered up in you waves
*layered up in you edges 2
*layered up in you scallop bits

I sure hope La gets better soon!

Jennifer April 10, 2011 at 12:46 PM  

Thank you, Melissa!!! You got some awesome goodies!!! <3

I was so sad to see this note over in our stores Designer Forum. I think what you are doing is awesome and she is blessed to call you her friend. Never went to her store before and wow what a treasure trove. I wish we had more money (I actually am not supposed to buy anything more this month) but this was to good of a cause not to help out!

I grabbed these fab finds for now...until next months budget :)
