Fortunately, I recently renewed a friendship with an incredibly talented illustrator, Emma Hand Snap stories. Emma agreed to make my blog look pretty (bye bye, scary cupcake) in exchange for some commercial and family photo work of j. Pollack photography. Win win!!
I love the illustrations that Emma did for my blog (the RSS button is my favorite-how about you?), and I'm also really excited about our plans to collaborate on some projects on the road (still no hints). But, despite all the work she's done for my blog, the best thing she has done for our household can design my son's favorite board book.
Emma's line of books, stories, you can Snap a cute book with ten of your own snapshots. What kid doesn't like a book about himself?
The funniest part of Snap stories is that you don't need any special tools to your custom book-no scrapbooking corners, glue, paste, or scissors. Each page of the book includes double-stick tape, so you can just stick your picture right. It is easy enough that you can book together with a child and set up a craft project out of it.

To celebrate the completion of this phase of the Cupcake Project design upgrade (it will be an ongoing project), Emma is giving away different stories Snap books. To enter, head over to her blog and leave a comment there (comments here on Cupcake Project are always welcome, but they will not get included in this contest).
