National Scrapbook Day 2013

I'm happy to report that this year's National Scrapbook Day crop here was a great success. Mama, Michelle and I spent ten hours together in celebration of this fun hobby!

We were extremely fortunate to have our own personal assistant on hand to pick up lunch from Subway, to surprise me with a few new items for my stash from our local Hobby Lobby, and to cook a delicious supper!


This allowed us maximum time to scrap with only short breaks for nourishment.

Mama wins the award for scrapping the most layouts (9 total) and using the most photos (too many to count). She has been busy lately scanning and printing photos in smaller sizes to include on layouts. She even brought along some of her sketches from several years ago and scrapped those!

Michelle tried several new techniques and discovered misting as she followed along with some of Shimelle's NSD challenges, completing 7 layouts along the way.

And I finished up 8 layouts - seven of them were inspired by Shimelle's challenges and one by a sketch Cheryl shared in a recent newsletter.

All in all it was a fabulous day filled with family, friends, fun, food and lots of laughter! Was your National Scrapbook Day 2013 fun and productive?

My day was a lot quieter than yours and I don't have as much to show for it, but it was productive!

Sounds like you had the best day. Plus---havng someone to wait on you is the best bonus!

I love that you shared photos of you ladies scrapping and even snacking. And I THINK I spied the layout where you used my sketch! LOL Lovely! All of them!
I didn't get to scrap as we had company BUT I did take my company to Michael's and bought myself a few scrapping goodies!

Wow, it looks like you were very productive while enjoying good company as well. And having a personal assistant on hand is priceless - bless his heart! I had good intentions but little followup - too many distractions (of my own making) on the computer.

I was going to say "Now, that looks like some serious scrapbooking" - but I realise how silly that sounds - that looks like some FUN scrapbooking!

Looks like so much fun and woot for getting so many pages done and trying new things too.

I love it when Dh is willing/able to be my personal assistant - he just went shopping for me and bought new cutting mats for my Big Shot :)

I used to really enjoy NSD and there would be so many crop options. Unfortunately, it seems to have become a bit of a non-event.
