Sketch Support NSD Blog Hop

**Eligibility for Prize is Closed. 
Winner announced Monday, May 9**

Hi everyone!

Happy (inter)National Scrapbook Day! I think this needs to become a federal holiday that requires us scrapbookers to take a long weekend. Maybe have Friday or Monday off from work. Anybody else with me on that?  Hehe! Alright, we are having a fun and fabulous blog hop with the Sketch Support design team! Fun, right? If you are just arriving at my blog you will need to begin over on the Sketch Support blog. There are some instructions as we are doing a Scavenger Hunt too. Hmmm.. I wonder what you'll find on my blog! :)

For the hop we are using a special two-page sketch by Allison that can be found on the Sketch Support website.  Here is my layout with some close-ups:




Supplies: Paper, Die cuts, sticker, journal spot: Imaginisce, Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper, Flowers: Prima Marketing, Alphabet: Pink Paislee, Ball trim: Fancy Pants, Twine: Jillibean Soup, Pen: Uniball Signo, Border Punch: Fiskars, Corner Punch: EK Success, Other: button

The photos are from an assignment from Beyond Blogging for Scrapbookers. We were encouraged to take a cameras with us for the day and snap photos through out the day. For this particular day, most of my photos were of work because that is what mostly consumed my day. I think I'll do this again to see how my days differ and all the different events that take up my time. Plus, it's great subject matter for a scrapbook page. I was excited to see this sketch because it worked perfectly for the work photos I took. 

Hey... I'm giving away an Allison Davis sketch book! The volume # is your choice. All you have to do to enter is leave me a comment and tell me about what you are doing today. It can be scrapbooking or not. In order to be eligible for the prize I need to hear all the juicy details of your day, okay? You can leave out the stuff like going to the bathroom and brushing your teeth. Ew. No one wants to know that stuff! Hehe...

Your next stop is going to be NOEY.  Have fun with the hop and hope you join us again real soon. :)

I took Shimelle's class too wasn't it helpful. Today I'm going to put to use all the Echo Park digital kits I bought in the sale and am going to do some christmas layouts I think.

Joanne said...

Well my day is nearly over here at the bottom of the world so I think im going to sleep as soon as im done with this blog hop and scavenger hunt! Lots of fun!

Paper Doll said...

I'm heading to my sister's today to scrap with her and my mom. Happy National Scrapbooking Day everyone!

DanaMK said...

I love the colours you chose for your LO! And I love layouts that document the every day - well done!

I am scrapping with some new scrappy friends today - woo hoo! I'm so excited! The food is ready, my scrap tote is packed and by the door. And I just may have some time to jump into the activities offered at BPC today for their free online crop.

Lisa said...

What a great idea for a scrapbook page! Lovely layout and very creative theme!! I'm going to try that someday. Ok, today I am spending the entire day at the hospital with my mom who had surgery Wednesday, to give my Dad a break. Hoping she can come home Sunday though just in time for Mother's Day, so glad to have this blog hop to pass the time while Mom is sleeping! I'd use this day to do my "day in the life" layout, but don't think Mom would appreciate that! LOL!

Linda said...

I found the Play Doh!

I will be leaving in less than 1 hour to go to my grandson's track meet. It is league and he will be running the 100M (early in the meet) and the Medley relay (next to last race) so ......my day is shot! I will take my camera and enjoy time with the family.

Amarilys said...

awesome layout!

Well, today I'm scrapping of course! My goal is to finish 3 layouts! :)
AT night, my hubby and I will visit him mom who had surgery a few days ago but is doing really well. Thanks for the opportunity to win and have a happy NSD!

sodapach said...

I like the clean look of your layout. Today I am meeting some friends for lunch and then going to the Great lakes Mega meet scrapbook convention. A very appropriate way to spend NSD!

gmlindsey said...

Today, I'm doing the blog hop, taking kids to birthday parties and going to work all night. I might sneak in a nap so I can stay awake. Wish I was scrapping!

Jenny said...

I'm spending the day at my son's lacrosse tournament, taking more pictures to scrap! Hopefully I will get a chance to do a layout or two tonight after the tourney.

Great layout! I'm blog hopping and scrapping today - DH and the kids are doing stuff together to give me time to scrap as an early Mother's Day Present.

AmyBug said...

Oh the pictures are really neat. I love this theme! What a great idea for a layout. Well this morning I had to work in the yard. I am taking a bit of a scrappy blog break right now but then I have to clean house. It's not what I want to be doing today but I have to meet with realtors next week and I certainly don't want to do it on Mother's Day soooo...I am hoping to get some house stuff done and then take a scrappy creative break later. Here's hoping... :)

Andrea said...

I LOVE the way you used the sketch and your colors and pictures make for a happy layout. I've been celebrating NSD with blog hops and taking advantage of all the online deals. Next I'm headed out to the pool for a swim before heading to a Derby party later.

BrendaB said...

I love the idea of capturing an ordinary day with photos, like you did on this page! I've spent the morning with DH, buying plants for the garden and flower beds, but I told him the afternoon is mine to scrap! (after all, it is a holiday, right?)

Joanna said...

Love the layout. Today I have run a 5k already, and I plan on going to a fair this afternoon once my son wakes up from his nap. Probably no scrapbooking today.

Janelle H. said...

Fun layout! I've had a dress rehearsal for a vocal production in a couple of weeks, I am doing this blog hop, then going to a couple of LSS, then having a Mother's Day dinner tonight with many family members! Busy!!

First of all I love your layout. Very cute. We finally have a beautiful day outside here (it's been so rainy) that I spent time this morning planting vegetables in the garden. This afternoon I made food for tomorrow when my family gets together with my Mom for Mother's Day. This evening I will be going on a date with my husband to celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary which was this past Thursday.

Peggy said...

Besides checking out all these great blogs I never saw before??? I am having so much fun already! After this I am going to work on an anniversary card for my daughter and her hubby and a school book for my granddaughters. Have plans to do some shopping too with my husband which explains why he is taking a nap right now! (-:

Tracy said...

LOVE your layout!

Today - I am not scrap booking - I am chasing around a 15 month old boy who is super active and does not sit still. We had a typical Saturday: We went grocery shopping, and then this afternoon we went to find him new shoes because he seems to be outgrowing everything. All in All a pretty boring day by most standards, but nothing is ever too boring with my little man!

COScraps said...

What a great idea for a LO. I may have to try that I can imagine the pictures I'd end up with after a day. Just got home from some family time at the Science Center and an early dinner. Going in a bit to take our oldest out for ice cream to celebrate for her b-day which is Monday . Hopefully I can squeeze some scrapy time in later!

em said...

cute cute cute cute cute

scrapstampcrazy said...

Love how you scrapbooked a page about yourself. Nicely done!

Megan D said...

Unfortunately I was in the car for 4+ hrs for a bridal shower instead of scrappy time. Maybe I will work on a layout before bed. Just trying to relax and look at others scrappy work.

HeatherK said...

No scrapping today. Out with my family buying vegetables and flowers for our garden. Can't wait to see the rewards of all our hard work planting.

Well, darn. I missed NSD because I was in a car ALL day travelling with my mom, sis and niece. We took a little girl's trip to pick my niece up from school. Super fun. Today, I am unpacking, unwinding and later enjoying a nice dinner with my hubby and two boys for Mother's Day. Great layout by the way :)

Love the concept for this layout!

Saturday was spent cleaning the house - I am also dog-sitting, so have 5 mutts running around the house instead of 4 - total craziness!
