Stampin' Out Alzheimer's Event May 25 - Jun 1


Hello everyone and happy Memorial Day!!
KS Crews are doing a special challenge for Stampin' Out Alzheimer's (SOA) instead of the regular KS Monday.
Susanna Boyd & Jen Tapler have planed this special event, and many other stampers in the paper craft community to help them by participating in the event.

Please read the article, The Story of Stampin' Out Alzheimer's by Jen Tapler and watch Susanna Boyd's video. I know you will participate for a good cause, along with having a fun with challenges, prizes, free kits, tutorials and more....
All you need to do to sign up for this event is to pay $5.00 minimum as a donation. All raised funds will be donated to the American Alzheimer's Associasion.


Maria posted Kitchen Sink Stamps challenge for SOA, too!
The challenge is
"Remembering someone you love" by creating a card, project or scrapbook page.

Here is the detail about the challenge. Please be sure to tag your creations with kss4soa so we are sure to include your entry when you upload your creation to the SOA gallery.
The prize for the challenge is Everything but the Kitchen Sink - KSS Mystery Box ($75.00 value at least!!). We can't wait to see your creation!

That's not all! KSS will also be running a 10% off sale during the entire week of SOA event (May 25 - June 1) and KSS will donate 10% of the net sales from the week to The Alzheimer's Association.
The code will only be displayed on Stampin' Out Alzheimer's site.


For my kss4soa project, I made 6"x 6" scrapbook layout. The little girl and the man of the photo is ME :) and my Dad. The photo was probably taken when I was 3-4 years old. My dad's passion was to paint. He was a landscape oil painter for the most of his life and he also loved to paint roses. I used to stay his studio and watch his painting for hours. It was the most precious memory I have with him. I was a daddy's girl and even now after his death. He past away after battling of cancer for 2 years on Feb 21, 1994 at age 62. I still miss him every day but I'm also in peace at the same time because I know he will come to meet me when I'm ready. Yes, he always lives in my heart....

The images and title were used from Hearts & Roses set. Maria's color recipes are awesome! I really recommend to save them in your file. Thanks Maria!
