Not sure if I have told you about this before, but you NEED to check out It is a great Local Scrapbooking Store (LSS) Locator. If you travel or not, you MUST check it out to find stores whereever you live or wherever you are going! Local scrapbooking stores are the life pulse of the scrapbooking industry -- we are the people who watch what is going on, we help foster creativity, and we learn about and from our customers. We genuinely care about saving memories! It seems that there are more and more small guys closing their doors each day and we need your support to keep on being CREATIVE and passionate about what we do!!

OK -- off the soapbox and back to the subject at hand -- FREE STUFF!

Each week Maps2Memories sponsors a contest -- 2 prizes are give out each week. One way to win a prize is to send in a receipt from a Maps2Memories store, the other is to go on their website and play the "Mile Marker Contest"! The prizes vary each week, but the past couple of weeks, the prizes have been HUGE and we even know a winnner (check out their website to find out more).
