NSD 2010 – Fun times!!!

on November 7, 2010

Good morning ladies!! I hope you all had fun yesterday with National Scrapbooking Day!! πŸ™‚ What a flurry of activities to be had all over the wonderful digi-world πŸ˜‰ Sally and I hosted a Speed Scrap yesterday afternoon, ohhh what fun!! Sally was basting a turkey while chatting, I was basically in a dazed from working all day, and staying up too late on Friday night, but fun was had by all. Sally and I are kinda “known” around Oscraps for our power-scrapping sessions, as busy mom’s of 4 and 5 children respectively, along with Sally’s home business, and my working full time, being a soccer mom, ya know if we want to scrap – we just have to get it done!! Since we are both hopelessly addicted to Oscraps and scrapping, we have become quite able to scrap a layout in a matter of an hour. πŸ˜‰ Slowly we are teaching our peeps to do the same!! LOL!! So, I’m wondering if any of you managed to actually scrap yesterday, or did you just shop yesterday??? LOL!!! Although, I love the sales, I mean really who doesn’t, but the real purpose of the day is to celebrate and create memories πŸ˜‰ The designers around digi-land pulled out all the stops yesterday, giving and giving over and over again – did ya remember to say thank you?? Did you remember what your Momma taught you as a little child, to say thank you when you receive a gift?? πŸ™‚ There were blog trains, freebies, coupons and codes galore, but did you remember to say thank you??? Ok …. little soapbox is done!! HA HA HA!!

Would you like to see what we scrapped yesterday??? πŸ™‚ And if you manage to get to the end of this long-winded post – you will likely find a freebie as well!!! HA HA HA!! Our speed scrap was a lift of Mindy Hanson’s incredible layout – LAUGHTER IS TIMELESS – I couldn’t help but pick this layout – the smile alone drew me in – how infectious is that smile?? And then the template and overall composition of the layout …. just stunning!!
