NSD - who has time????

So I totally missed National Scrapbooking Day this year, just too busy with other things this past weekend.  Like the wonderful Bridal Shower that my daughter throw for her best friend, a great car show and spending time with my other daughter who won't be here for Mother's Day this year.

So in honor of NSD I wanted to share the very first layout I ever did.  I have an older sister who is amazingly talented with all things crafty (she gets it from my mom) and she was already scrapping when I decided to try it.  Kendall was home sick and taking a nap so the house was really quiet so I got everything out that I had bought so far - which wasn't much back then and came up with this layout.  Just paper and stickers but I had alot of fun doing it and was hooked from then on.  That was about 11 years ago.

To this day I still love this layout and wouldn't change a thing on it.  It reminds me that scrapping is suppose to be fun and about perserving the memories for our family.  Not how elaborate or fancy I can make the pages in our albums.

I also made a card for a niece that is getting married in July.  Her Bridal shower is in June and I won't be able to make it but wanted to let her know I was sending good wishes.

Thanks for stopping by...

Thanks for sharing the layout and history. Did you have any idea where that one layout would lead? I missed scrapbooking day too. We were at an out of town wedding.

That card is beautiful.
I didn't get as much done this past weekend as I wanted to, but I did get some scraping time in.
