...And, yes, there is a day dedicated JUST TO SCRAPBOOKING!!! So, tell your husbands that today is nothing but scrapbooking! :-) Hehehe! I read on someone's blog today that it is like a day camp for crafty grown-ups! So true! So, to celebrate, here are a couple of my older layouts that I did sometime last year in the album that I am currently STILL working on! The first is a layout showing my son's first haircut by none other but me, myself and I. My parents were in town and my Dad walked me through it...thank goodness! The second layout is one that I did that revolves around my father-in-law riding my son around on the John Deer....you know they BOTH had fun doing that! :-) And it shows!
While I say to do nothing but scrapbook today, I probably won't do any today! My husband has been out of town ALOT during the last 3 weeks and he came home last night and today will be "family day" at our house. First, we will start off by going to my son's soccer game at 8am! Yes, 8am! Then it is just good ol' family time through lunch (which will probably be the local Quiznos, because that is becoming our traditional soccer day meal) and then we are celebrating Cinco de Mayo wit some friends from church! Sure to be a fun filled day, even with no crafting in there anywhere....well, maybe during the kids' nap time! :-)
By the way, National Scrapbooking Day was started by Creative Memories in 1994 and continues to the present. It actually lasts for a whole week with the first Saturday in May (which is the 5th this year) being the last day of the week, hence becoming NSD. So, there is a little background! Many, many, MANY sales are going on at local stores and at crafting websites all over the world. If you go to HERE there is a list of websites that are having sales today!
Have a fun day of scrapbooking and/or crafting and remember, it is always homemade!
