National Scrapbooking Day

National Scrapbooking Day was this past Saturday & in honor of that we had a special crop over at Cookin' Up Creations to celebrate.....lots of games, challenges, etc. Considering all that I have going on in my life right now, I was really pleased that I was able to get a handful of layouts done. Thought I'd share them with you here.


The page below...of the girls right after church in their Easter dresses.........we were challenged to use some kind of 'spring' punch for embellishments to our LO. I knew right off, that this Martha Stewart butterfly punch would be the perfect accent to this springtime page.
There was a layout in a Scrapbooks etc. magazine with the coolest little tree embellishment & we were challenged to copy that tree on a LO. Just so happened that I had the perfect pictures of our newly planted orchard & so the tree worked out just right on this page! This layout of Ashley & Peaches was done for the challenge to use at least one handmade flower on our page. I used an assortment of different flowers....mostly some rub-ons that I dug out of my stash, but I also made a little torn circl flower to add as the center of the largest rub-on flower.

The layout below of Alli & Rocky was done for a 'BINGO' challenge. We had to choose 4 elements from a Bingo-type card to use on our LOs. The 4 elements that I chose were: yellow, 2 punches(small circles for the title & butterfly punches which I added AFTER I had scanned this), journaling spot & a stamped title.

In the last layout I was able to complete, we were challenged to use the spring colors of green, orange & blue/turquoise.

The dumb scanner kind of cut off the top of this last LO. Not really sure why, but anyway it was ok......just a little border strip across the top, so no biggy.
