Crops of Luv to Be Featured on Local News Channel 12

We're sooo excited!  This Thursday the local Channel 12 News is coming to Crops of Luv to film a segment about COL, our mission, etc.  We aren't exactly sure when the segment will actually air, but we're very excited for the opportunity to spread the word about Crops of Luv.  Keep an eye on your Channel 12 news to see our segment!

Heads Up--Coming Soon: Princess Layout Contest

All the details aren't finalized yet, but Crops of Luv is partnering with our friends at Provo Craft for a nationwide contest.  Details will be posted as soon as we have them....Everyone will want to be a part of this event!  Keep checking back here at the blogspot for details.

Lots of New Ways to Donate (Painlessly!) to Crops of Luv

In August we posted a blog with several different ways to donate to Crops of Luv (check our blog archives for that info).  Here's another--easy and fun--way to donate:  go to !  It's similar to, but does have some differences, such as:  if you sign in with Crops of Luv as your charity, and load Good Search onto your toolbar, every time you search the web for anything, it will rack up $$ toward Crops of Luv!  You can also achieve donations by clicking onto Good Shop and do your online shopping through this site and a percentage of your shopping total will be donated to Crops of Luv.  It's really easy and so much fun and doesn't cost you anything extra, but will help Crops of Luv with extra donations.  Be sure to go in and check it out for yourself.  Have fun searching and shopping! 

Another way you can help Crops of Luv is by downloading and printing stickers.  There is a great website ( ) where you can save the images to a file and then printout the file onto 8 1/2 x 11 inch sticker paper (Walmart carries both white and clear packages of sticker sheets).  Printer ink is costly (as we all know), but if all of our Crops of Luv supporters downloaded and printed out even one sheet of stickers it would be a tremendous help to us.  I downloaded about 12 images onto one sheet and added a border around each individual image.  Then, all you need to do is cutout the individual "stickers" from the pre-printed sheet and add to your layouts.  

Speaking of layouts, that's another way you can help Crops of Luv--by making pre-made layout sheets and mats.  We always need Disney pages, Sea World pages, Jungle (Animal Kingdom) pages, etc.  If you have the time and want to do some pre-made layouts (then we can just add the photos and journaling), we would greatly appreciate anything you can donate.

NEEDED--Newer Disney Character Products

If you have any scrapping products (stickers, papers, embellishments, etc.) for Disney's "Tangled" (Rapunzel); Princess and the Frog (Pincess Tiana); The Incredibles; Little Einsteins; or Scoopy Doo that you would be willing to donate to Crops of Luv, please send them to us at: 11424 S. Pawnee Circle, Phoenix, AZ  85044.  We desperately need these characters for books we're working on.  Thanks in advance for your amazing support, we appreciate anything you can do!
