:REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Ella's Essential Guide to Scrapbooking Girls [CONTEST CLOSED]

As the mother of one child - a girl - the newest Ella eBook was right up my alley.

It's called Ella's Essential Guide to Scrapbooking Girls and it's contributors include five amazing scrap artists who happen to be the mother of girls - and only girls - also! They include Elizabeth Dillow, Danielle Flanders, May Flaum, Nicole Southworth, and Jody Wenke.

In the intro, Editor Angie Lucas writes, "You don't raise girls and boys in exactly the same way and you don't scrapbook about them in exactly the same way either."

How true! The subtitle of this book - 91 sweet ideas for girls of all ages - tells you exactly what you'll find in this wonderfully feminine eBook.

In the eBook, there are 20 girly topics accompanied by a beautiful sample layout from one of the talented contributors. They cover everything from unique ways to record special relationships, favorites, milestones and so much more. The additional ideas come into play in the form of suggested variations on each theme. There are three to four variations for each idea.

Each contributor also shares their personal three-part formula for 'instant femininity' and offers a challenge to try it on your next girl layout.

I also loved that at the end of the eBook, the contributors share their opinion for how often each of the ideas in the book should be revisited in your scrapbook albums. Many of the ideas could be recycled every year and still seem fresh.

There are three quizzes that are featured in the sample layouts that are provided for download. All you have to do is add in answers to suit the girl in your life and add them directly to your next layout for a fast and memorable page.

Here comes the best part! I have one free download to give away to one lucky reader. All you need to do is answer the following question by 5 p.m. on Thursday, September 9, 2010.

What is your favorite way - either product or technique - to add a little feminine flair to your layouts? will choose and I'll announce the winner on Friday!
