What did you do for NSD?

There so many tempting online crops, challenges and events for National Scrapbook Day thar I didn't know which way to turn first! I spent most of my scrap time latr week with Cookin' Up Creations, a scrapbook forum, and on the Citrus Twist Kits Fans' Facebook page. My hands are pretty twisted looking and stiff right now from  rheumatoid arthritis, but I did manage ro complete 9 layouts between May 1 and 8, which made me happy.

I hosted a recipe challenge on the forum, using this sketch from PageMaps:


The "recipe"called for strips of patterned paper or washi tape; I used rhe latter because I have a lot of it and seldom use it. And I also included a photo that included the scrapper in the recipe because I am seldom in my own pages. My oldest daughter took this photo of my grandson and I talking. Not a great photo, but I like thar it shows us talking and laughing.


I didn't have many unscrapped family photos, so I took photos of things that I like, so there will be more pages "about me" in my albums. These 3 were all from Citrus Twist challenges, either using a sketch or lifting a design member's layouts.

Yes, I love teddy bears...


... and coffee ...


... and the sparkle from the jewelry counter at a store in downtown Pueblo...


...... and the various forms of art that decorate the buildings and public areas in our new home town:



I'll be back to show more later this week. Thanks for stopping by!

Wow, we have so much in common. I love teddy bears and coffee too. But I wish I had all the family photos scrapbooked. Not even close to being done that. Your layouts are awesome and I like how you took photos of things you like. BL
