National Scrapbooking Day

Saturday was National Scrapbooking Day ... I guess it should be called International because everyone celebrates on the same day ... i think it's just kind of an industry holiday ... anyways most scrapbooking shops will have a special event or sale or something like that going on. I went to a 12 hour crop at Pick of the Patch ... a local store ... I had a great time, loads of friendly people and some of the scrapaholics went as well. I was totally happy to see Sue C ... (I miss you Sue) whom I haven't seen much of lately ... oh and visit her blog, she is going to shave her head for Cancer once she raises $1,000.00 ...

I spent NSD making a mini album ... one that is apparently resistant to being photographed ... i tell ya i tried to take photos of it yesterday and only 2 came close to turning out. This is a little heart shaped album ... I wanted it to kind of be reminiscent of a vintagey type box of chocolates ... unfortunately I didn't have any vintage images with me ... so i just went with what i had. The ruffle is all crepe paper, the edge of the crepe paper has been glued and dipped into iridescent tinsel glitter. the little pink rosette is pink crepe paper, this time edged in stickles and the little white rosettes are edged in stickles as well ... it is really pretty IRL but I can not get a decent photo of it ... I think because it is painted with shimmerz, which is a shimmery shiny paint and it reflects the light ... I haven't taken pics of the inside yet because the journaling isn't complete .... hopefully i will get to that today ... Did I mention that I was making this as a valentines day gift for my dear sweet daughter ... yeah ... I'm a little behind in my scrapping ...

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, please take the time to "smell the roses" as they say, let bygones be bygones, pick no battles and live in the moment.
