National Scrapbook Day Blog Hop!

WELCOME to the 
National Scrapbook Day Blog Hop!!

Today, some of the best Scrapbooking bloggers I 
know teamed up to present a 
blog hop to celebrate ALL us Scrapbookers 
National Scrapbook Day!

Some info on National Scrapbooking Day:

Each year on the first Saturday in May, it is National Scrapbook Day. 

Also known as National Scrapbooking Day, on this day thousands of people get together all over the country to celebrate with scrapbooking parties and share their talents with others. 

Scrapbooking dates back to the 15th century.

As per Wikipedia: “Scrapbooking is a method for preserving personal and family history in the form of a scrapbook. Typical memorabilia include photographs, printed media, and artwork. Scrapbook albums are often decorated and frequently contain extensive journaling. Scrapbooking is a widely practiced pastime in the United States.”

Scrapbooking is a hobby of preserving memories and at the same time it provides a strong social network.

  ”Scrappers”, as they are called, get together and scrapbook at each others homes, local scrapbook stores, scrapbooking conventions, retreat centers and have even gone on cruises.  Together they share tips and ideas and enjoy the social outlet.

Scrapbookers are often referred to as "Paper Hoarders".

Now, who's ready to celebrate with some 

Recently my son got his braces off so I wanted to memorialize this fun event by creating a layout.  I found these adorable cuts on the Dr. Checkup Cricut cartridge.
The boy's faces were stamped with the Boymates Peachy Keen face stamps, however on the left side of the page, I used the braces die cut since I will be adding a picture of my son with his braces to that page.
My layout was embellished with some fun chevron washi, a few scattered enamel dots and a couple of coordinating brads.  A bit of Orangesicle Trendy Twine was used as an accent on each of the pages.
I tucked in a small journaling tag behind one of the photo mats with a sentiment from the Scrappy Moms Mini Messages stamp set.  A chevron embossing folder was used for the circle behind the boys face.
Let's get to hopping!!!
