12 Days of Christmas Mystery Giveaway -- Day 9

Ready, Scrap, Shoot got me thinking about memorial albums.  I'd like to create them for several family members, but first I've got to pull together the information. And find someone who has pictures I can copy...
 
It's going to be a project, but it's one I should start now, while I still can put their stories together.
 
Have you ever made a memorial album? Any tips for me?
 



When the author of the Kiki Lowenstein Scrap-n-Craft mysteries, Joanna Campbell Slan, emailed and asked if I wanted to give away twelve of her mysteries to my readers, I couldn't pass up the chance to spread my addiction!

Here's how we're doing it --

Every day for twelve days, I'll be posting a new giveaway post. To enter today's giveaway, just leave a comment on this post. When each day's post goes live, I'll choose a winner from the previous day's post and close it to comments. Clear as mud?

Today's book is Ready, Scrap, Shoot

 
With bills piling up and a brassy new partner at her scrapbooking shop, the last thing Kiki Lowenstein needs is a surprise visit from her browbeating mother. But when shots fired into the crowd narrowly miss Kiki at her daughter’s May Day pageant, it’s another mother—St. Louis’s wealthiest matriarch—who winds up dead.

While creating a memorial album for the murdered beer heiress, Kiki becomes bait in a dangerous trap as threats from her old foe mount against her. With help from friends in high and low places, including hunky beau Chad Detweiler, Kiki finds herself facing a grave ultimatum: catch the killer or be cropped out of her own family album.

What crafts do you do -- quilting, knitting, stitching, scrapbooking? Which do you wish you had more time for?

For a chance to win today's book, just leave a comment on this post.

I love the idea of memorial albulms. Being a genealogist, I appreciate the importance of documenting the details & keeping the memories alive for future generations. I really need to make the time to start scrapbooking again. :)

I quilt - don't have as much time for it as I'd like. I'd love to win this book as I love mysteries

I have done two memorial albums - one for each of my parents when they passed. One tip I would share is for you to get stories from others to include in your album. I sent out emails/letters to all family (and friends) for stories and got some nice ones back to include. Good luck with your album.

I love to quilt and hope to have more time once I retire next year.
