Today's the Day!!

NO, it's not my birthday.
It's not Groundhog Day
It's not even National BeeKeeper's Day.

Nope. . .today (or this weekend at some point) is National Scrapbooking Day.
Scoff, if you must. But for someone like me, it's a national holiday. How will I commemorate this auspicious day? By cropping, of course.

I've already done a couple of digital layouts for Christy for NSD. Here's one I did last night. . .

. . .and if I'm honest, I have a few more that I need to do before the weekend is over. But, you scoffers might ask how this day is also being celebrated the world over. Well, let's see. . .

  • QVC is devoting much of its programming time today to scrapbooking. (too expensive for my blood)
  • Creative Memories is promoting a NSD event through independent consultants. That's where I'm going tonight.
  • Sites like Butternug Squash Designs and Natural Designs in Scrapbooking (to say nothing of and Simple Scrapbooks (my favorite SB magazine -- hint, hint!) are promoting this holiday.
I'm not asking for a day off. (Friday is my day off) I'm just saying give some "props" to us, the home memory assimilators and preservers. We're doing this for future generations. There's nothing selfish about our need to congregate in various locations, with tons of paper, glue, ribbons, and stickers -- to preserve our family's heritage in acid-free environments.

It's about the children. How can you look down on that?

Happy National Scrapbook Day!

Yea for Angie for promoting NSD!!
I'm not scrapping today... actually I've been reading blogs in France today. I started yesterday and am so inspired to emboider as their work is so beautiful. They have Schools for Embroidery. I did come across a few French scrappers.

My purse... no, not dressy enough for the wedding... it's a formal affair. My dress is blue and strapless and actually has a waist. I was measured so that it fits now but made to be taken in. I've had my hair done up twice to see what my hairdresser could do with it. After the wedding it's getting cut off... one length but chin length. It's shoulder length right now... too long for me.

Your layout looks great! Have a fun weekend scrapping.

Oh man, now I know why you scrap. I just made a card on my own and yipee!!!! it was fun. I am going to post it. Now I can't figure out why I even stopped doing this.
I love the layout here. You always have great stuff, that's why I came to you for help.
Happy National Scrapbooking Day!

National Scrapbooking Day? Yeah, right. Sorta like National Eating Chocolate Day. If you're into it, you don't need an excuse.

That being said, congrats on supporting a good cause.

And some bloggers know that electrons will last even longer than acid-free paper.
