it's National Scrapbook Day!

tell me, how are you celebrating!?


i'm going to be right here in my studio with my girls, cyber-celebrating with my sweet friend Sherry. making layouts just like the one above. not focusing on deadlines, no assignments, using imperfect photos and making imperfect layouts (then, taking imperfect photos of said layouts, LOL)-----just because. perfectly-imperfect! my favorite kind of scrapbooking!

we're focusing on some challenges we've brainstormed:
  • use a photo from your tumblr account as inspiration (Sherry's tumblr here, Tania's tumblr here)
  • make a layout/card based on one of the Sunday sketches from Studio Calico
  • create a layout with a party banner (yes, trendy. but i've been wanting to try it!)
  • use a border of some sort (punch, fabric, die-cut, etc)
  • use circles to create a layout (i just did this recently....lookie here!)
  • scrap about (or a moment from) today (Saturday or Sunday)
other exciting things not to be missed today:

  • everyone is celebrating.........check it out!
i'll be sure to share the results of my challenge layouts in the days to come! if you don't already have along with us! i'd love to see the end result too. just put a link in my comments. :)

happy scrappin'!


  1. Gorgeous--love how the purples picked up the purples in that tie-dyed shirt! What a riot! Takes a special kind of person to wear that in public, huh?

  2. that it does rae! judging by the number of times i saw her in that shirt i'd say it was her favorite. she had the purple nailpolish on her fingernails to match it too! LOL.


thank you for taking time to leave me a comment! i will do my best to leave comments answering any questions you may ask :)
