    OAKLAND, Calif., May 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Calling all croppers! The Skinny
 Cow brand is recognizing excellence in social cropping by unveiling a
 contest to find and crown the "Queen of the Crop."
     According to the Craft and Hobby Association, scrapbooking, a method of
 preserving a legacy of written history through photographs, memorabilia and
 embellishments, has recently become more popular than golf. With one in
 three households containing a scrapbooker, the hobby has grown rapidly
 since its modern debut in the early 1980s.
     The Skinny Cow brand is inviting "scrappers" across the country to
 share their snipped, stamped and stenciled memories as part of a nationwide
 challenge in creativity. The contest involves creating a layout with two
 photos, a title, at least one accent or embellishment, and a journalizing
 block to bring the page to life. Croppers have until midnight on July 31,
 2007, to submit their entries in one of the following categories:
     * Best "Girls Nite Out" Page:
       -- From TV show watching parties to book clubs and happy hours, memories
          are always made when good friends come together for an evening of
     * Best "Crop Party" Page:
       -- Scrapbooking and parties go together like glitter and glue!  If your
          scrapbooking get-togethers go down in history, be sure to preserve
          the memories with an amazing visual display of all the good times.
     * Best "Scrapbook Convention" Page:
       -- Croppers across the country convene to refine skills and creativity
          ... and not to mention, scrapbook!
     The top 150 contest entries will be judged by a panel of "celebrity
 scrapbookers" from Creating Keepsakes and Simple Scrapbooks magazines. The
 grand prize winner will be crowned "Queen of the Crop," and receive a trip
 for four to Walt Disney World(R) in Orlando, Fla. Three 1st prize winners
 (one per category) will receive a digital camera and photo printer package,
 and 30 2nd prize winners (10 per category) will receive a year's supply of
