It's National Scrapbooking Day and for me, it's a day for which I am grateful. Grateful that I am professionally involved in the industry, grateful that I am doing what I love to do and grateful that you are a part of my life.
My bio usually includes a paragraph that my childhood dreams were being a teacher, a writer and someone who creates and that in the world of memory arts/scrapbooking, I've found all three. I know that if someone had told me that I would be an instructor, writer and artist in this field, I would have totally laughed. But, here I am and loving it.
In celebration of NSD and to show my gratitude to you, I'm going to do a giveaway. It's a handmade flip book with the face of each page completed and the backside left open for you to add your photos and journaling. It's about gratitude...creating this book reminded me about how often I forget the many blessings I have...and, I'm guessing that most of us need a little nudge in that area. I had to chuckle when I came across this quote..."[D]on't pray when it rains if you don't pray when the sun shines." Leroy [Satchel] Paige. I think I need to pin this one up on my inspiration board!
I'm also including extra paper, some vintage rick rack and a vintage velvet flower for you to complete the back sides of the pages.
Here's all you need to do to be put in the drawing. Simply leave me a comment about why you love to scrapbook or what you love most about scrapbooking.
I'll keep the contest open until Wednesday, May 7th, around noon Arizona time.
I can't wait to read what you have to say!

Hope you have a happy, blessed day!
