National Scrapbook Day Weekend Blog Hop!!


WELCOME to the 
National Scrapbook Day Blog Hop!!

Today, some of the best Scrapbooking bloggers I 
know teamed up to present a 
blog hop to celebrate ALL us Scrapbookers 
National Scrapbook Day!

Some info on National Scrapbooking Day:

Each year on the first Saturday in May, it is National Scrapbook Day. 

Also known as National Scrapbooking Day, on this day thousands of people get together all over the country to celebrate with scrapbooking parties and share their talents with others. 

Scrapbooking dates back to the 15th century.

As per Wikipedia: “Scrapbooking is a method for preserving personal and family history in the form of a scrapbook. Typical memorabilia include photographs, printed media, and artwork. Scrapbook albums are often decorated and frequently contain extensive journaling. Scrapbooking is a widely practiced pastime in the United States.”

Scrapbooking is a hobby of preserving memories and at the same time it provides a strong social network.

  ”Scrappers”, as they are called, get together and scrapbook at each others homes, local scrapbook stores, scrapbooking conventions, retreat centers and have even gone on cruises.  Together they share tips and ideas and enjoy the social outlet.

Scrapbookers are often referred to as "Paper Hoarders".

How about those journaling tidbits facts???

Let's get to hopping!!!

I recently found out I am going to be a grandma for the first time this summer. I have been working on a baby album for the little girl. This weekend I wanted to share two of the pages with you. This is an 8X8 album.

This set of pages is for the pregnancy photo and the sonogram. 
I used the Bazzil, Bazzil Bling, Lost & Found and DCWV paper. The flowers are from Prima. I also used Thickers, Daisy D stickers, Karen Foster stickers and brads (from my stash). 
I used Glossy accents and ATG tape for adhesives.

Next, please be sure to hop to JESSICA!!! 

Here is the blog lineup in case you get lost!
