Winner: The Funnest Scrapbooker Ever (for 2009)



Hello again, dear blog readers! Today, we bring you a very special announcement.

This year, we teamed up with Simple Scrapbooks to search for the most amusing, entertaining, silly and witty scrapbooker out there: The Funnest Scrapbooker Ever (for 2009). We asked those zany enough to enter to:

  • Tell us a joke.
  • Tell us in 100 words why they should be crowned the Funnest Scrapbooker Ever (for 2009).
  • Send a wacky photo of themselves (wearing a costume, imitating a statue, etc).
  • Send a picture of their Funniest. Layout. Ever.
  • Create three playful layouts: one with a playful photo trick, one with a playful stamping trick, and one with a playful title or journaling trick.

We’re still recovering from the excessive-laughter-induced bellyaches that judging this contest created. And when the laughter (finally!) died down, we had our winner. A scrapbooker so funny she has blamed a fictional character for her car accident, actually owns a clown wig, and has created a layout with journaling that ends: “He was right. I was wrong. That happens so rarely that I thought I should document it.” Congratulations to:


Terri Davenport of Toledo, Ohio!

Terri will enjoy the following prizes during her reign:

Here’s one of Terri’s hilarious page entries for your laughing enjoyment:


Isn’t she a hoot?

Congratulations, also, to Autumn Baldwin and Emily Higbee, our two runners-up, who will not only step in and fulfill Terri’s duties should she be unable to complete her reign, but will each receive a $100 shopping spree at, a tiara and sash, and a mustache-a-day kit.

Here’s Autumn’s silly joke:

Q: What do you call cheese that doesn’t belong to you?

A: Nacho cheese! (Get it? Not-yo cheese)

And here’s Emily’s silly joke:

Top 5 signs you might be a scrapbooker:

  1. You’ve stayed up all night surfing the Internet for a sneak peak of the new “In colors” from Stampin’ Up!
  2. You’ve spent an hour in desperate indecision over using the last “e” from your favorite pack of Thickers.
  3. You’ve shown up at you’re husband’s uncle’s home (which happens to be near the hospital) in the middle of the night in labor, wanting to borrow his camera.
  4. Your outing with your girlfriends is ruined when you stop at the scrapbook store and start throwing elbows over the last Heidi Swapp mask.
  5. You purchase your daughter’s Easter dresses to match that perfect patterned paper.

Thanks to everyone who entered!
