Happy NSD!

 --HAPPY NATIONAL SCRAPBOOKING DAY--
It gives me the warm fuzzies to think of my
crafty peeps out there who are enjoying a day of 
cropping with friends, enjoying challenges and winning some free stuff!
I hope that you're all having a ball!

There are several special places that I'd like to mention today.
First, Bella Blvd where all of the designers will be sharing their 'about me' 
layouts today.  Bella is also having a fabulous Warehouse Sale, so check that out,
as well as the FOUR giveaways that's slated for the day!

Here is my contribution to NSD Bella-style:
Because paper crafting is such a big part of my life right now, I chose to use my current 
design team photo for my layout. It was already cropped into a square, so I printed it off 
with my home printer onto a 4X6 photo paper and then trimmed away the excess. I also 
printed out some of my favorites for the year so far and kept it in (roughly) the same size as the photo. 
While I had the banner punch out for the bunting, I also used it for creating the leaves on the flowers!

 Supplies: Freestyle Sophisticates: Freestyle Peep; Family Forever: Family Game Night, 
Sunday Brunch; Molly: Sketch with Style, Refuse to Sink, Boy Crazy; High Five 
Alpha Stickers: Piggy-Punch; Crochet Hearts: Dahlia

And now for some scrapping Q&A's:
1. What are your top 5 supplies/products that you cannot scrap without? 
 Sewing machine, foam adhesive, die-cutting machine, dies/punches, corner rounder.
2. What do you listen to while you scrap? TV, music, or do you do your best 
working in silence? Totally depends on the mood and if I'm alone in the house or not.
 Most of the time I watch TV series on Netflix, BBC movies or listen to Pandora.
 I like the company of 'noise'
 so I almost always have something going in the background.
3. What snacks and/or drinks are beside you when you're scrapping?
Coffee.
4. When do your do your best scrapping? Are you a morning scrapper,
 a late night scrapper, or do you find time during the day?  
 I start pretty early in the morning and work until time to pick the kids up from school. 
 I like to be with the family at night, so I very seldom craft during the later hours of the day.
5. Be honest. Where do your layouts go once you're done with them?
 In albums, in piles, or shoved in random places?
I clip them up on my storage bins until I find the time to put them in albums.


Over at Chickaniddy Crafts, they're giving away this adorable

Again, I hope that you have the most terrific National Scrapbooking Day ever!
