Happy National Scrapbooking Day!

Happy National Scrapbooking Day!
This was taken of my girlfriend and scrapbook partner in crime, Valerie.....aka Gig Harbor Scrapper at a crop we went to a couple of years ago. I thought maybe some of you non scrappers would like to see what a crop looks like.
Even if you can't escape for a full day of playing with paper, I hope you can at least carve a few minutes to play with something creative today.

Not sure if you know this, but I don't get to scrap today...........oh? I've already mentioned that before? Are you sure?
BUT! I do get to make the card for the event today. I must get busy. But first...... I thought I would share with you my very first layout.....EVER! Look at the lovely display of the famous "sneeze" technique.........and of course the lack of nice looking journaling. I actually just ended up adding the journaling years later and just scribbled where ever I had room. So see, it really doesn't matter in the end what it looks like, the memories are still the same.
As you can see.........or hopefully anyway, I have cleaned up my act. Or I just discovered how to scraplift. I like a lot of white space, clean lines and I always journal now, either on the back or on the layout. This soccer one was actually made for a 12x12 frame for a coach gift.

This one is my all time fav! Love the laughing face of my son, love the white space and the colors.
I also only do one page layouts anymore...........I don't know why, but I cram as many photos on a page as I can. I also usually use white, black or kraft cardstock. Don't know why.

I am trying to get my search button at the bottom to work so you can search for what you want here at TCB. Why do I have a search button? Well, I know I come off as being super organized, ....LOL.......but occasionally I can't remember if I already featured someone and I need to search. And that search button way down there isn't working for me........ It won't work, but maybe that's some weird blogger rule. I don't know. So would you please check it for me? Type anything and search. Pretty please? Did it work?
Oh, one more thing. I want to remind you and pat myself on the back that I posted everyday this week. M-F and now Sat! So please check out all the features this week. Fun stuff.

The search worked for me. I typed in "photography" and got a bunch of relavent posts!

I remember having such a great time together. It feels like that was the last time we saw each other, what a bummer. I have done 6 pages this weekend but it would have been so much more fun if you had been here.

I love your very first scrapbook page ever. It looks very familiar...lots of stickers, etc. We didn't have all the cool things back then that we have now though.

And I didn't even scrap today! I did craft, though... *B

I didn't scrap on scarbooking day, but i feel incredibly inspired now after seeing the first birthday picture. It's my son's first birthday on Friday, and i think that something similar would make a special first birthday present. So thank you for that lol :)

Take care,
Lea x

Search worked for me..took me both to Google, and within TCB, depending which I clicked. And both in a separate window.

I really like that layout with all the pictures on one page...makes so much more sense to me! lol

I love love love your pages. The colors and layouts are amazing!

Making MM made an apology and removed Shabro from their site.
I am hoping that you too did not know the details of the sitation and are willing to make a statement by doing the same. Unfortunately you too are yet another victim of Ms. Shabro's.

Wow! Kim, I just found your blog. What a cute design, and what a fun blog!! I was wondering how one might be featured? Do you randomly pick them, or do you take requests? I have a blog I'd love to have featured on your blog! I'd love to hear from you: or

Search worked fine. I find on blogger that I can search my own page ONCE and after that sometimes it gets stupid.
