Well, after hearing about this for the past week or so, I finally got my hands on it. IT would be the latest issue of CK magazine. The February issue has an article about 5 scrapbookers that have a made a diference in the world. The first person featured was my friend Aleida. She was killed in a car accident this past September. This was so upsetting to her family and friends. Aleida had a lot of friends and I am happy to say that I was one of them. She has connected me with a group of friends that I treasure and I am so thankful for that! Love you girls!!
Okay, the article is truly a disappointment to me. First off the LO was done by someone that did not know Aleida.Though the pics were supplied by her husband, I think they should have had the LO made by someone that really knew her, family or friend. The article did convey her great online presence and all the friends she had made through this great hobby. She made many friends through many sites. I, myself got to know her through SIS TV . She was also on the DT for Scrappin' the Music. The only site that was mentioned in the article was Studio Calico. Don't get me wrong, Studio Calico is a great online community. All the gals are sweet and welcoming, but to me the site being mentioned (more than once!) sounded more like an advertisement. I guess I was really looking for more. The very short article, written by someone that does not know her, did not really portray the real spirit of Aleida. I am truly disappointed. Okay, I will get off my soapbox now. If you have read the article...what do YOU think??
