Happy National Scrapbook Day!

I had a really great (but busy day today!) First was dropping off the favors and centerpieces that I made for the local Lion's Club banquet at the Catholic church banquet hall. Then a pancake and sausage breakfast at the Lutheran church, a first Saturday of the month ritual for my family. It is really more like a community gathering for a meal! I love small town life, wouldn't trade it for any big city living. Home, to pack up for a wonderful no frills crop at KUMC with some really talented ladies. I was actually a "frill" for the crop, I taught a class on how to make tear bears. Everyone did such a nice job and had such cute little bears! It was great to meet all of you ladies, can't wait to scrap with you again soon!
I got more done at this crop than I have in a very long time! I started on my step-daughter's album of all the portraits we have taken of her over the years. It is amazing to see how much she has grown and matured. She will be a senior next year, hardly seems possible.
I got six single pages done and I used techinques I have never tried before, a little out of my comfort zone, that's all I'm saying, check back to see the layouts later this week.

The above layout was made using product from Creative Memories 2007 Memoranza gift. Page is CM, Spargo. Stamps and ink(retired color) are Close to My Heart, Small Pleasures. It is so strange how my newly purchased CTMH stamps coordinated so well with the CM produt. Fortunate for me!


The page below is also CM Memoranza product, Spargo page. Stamps are Autumn Leaves, Swirls. Ink is retired CTMH.

Take Care, Be Blessed and Happy Scrapping!
