Nancy O'Dell Celebrates Family-Friendly Book 'Full of Love' + Giveaway

GIVEAWAY UPDATE: Congrats to Miranda, who won a copy of Nancy O'Dell's book, "Full of Love." (Decision courtesy of Please email me at with your address. Thanks to everyone who participated!

Who knew Nancy O'Dell was such a scrapbook superstar?

Well, not only is the former "Access Hollywood" host and L.A mom a scrapbooking expert, she literally wrote a book on the subject, the recently launched "Full of Love," and I had the awesome opportunity on Monday night to attend her book party, sponsored by scrapbook company Creative Memories, and chat up O'Dell herself. (Check out the video above.)

O'Dell joined her husband, Keith Zubulevich, and other celebrity friends, including Alison Sweeney, Jeff Probst, Nia Vardalos, Greg Vaughan and Shaun Robinson, on the red carpet at the SLS at Beverly Hills Hotel and invited guests to create a scrapbook -- or Album of Hope -- for their children to show them just how much they are loved.

The book's full title, "Full of Love: Mom-to-Mom Advice for Enriching Families With Simple Photo Albums and Scrapbooking" really touches on how meaningful a scrapbook can be for kids' self-esteem.

It's amazing to me to think about how many photos upon photos we have of CC that are just stuck on the computer or memory card that should really be in albums for her to see and enjoy.

This is definitely a kick-start!

Scrapbooks are meaniful to me because I can pass them down to my daughter. They are something that I think she will cherish forever.

So much to say on this one. First, Garth Brooks is a fellow Pokie!!!! So of course, I would LOVE to read this book. Also, I have always wanted to scrap book but never knew how to get started. I always figured if I was married, or had kids I would have a starting point. Well, maybe somewhat soon, I'll have that starting point. Don't read too much into that last comment ;)
