only 364 days until the next national scrapbook day!

Yesterday was so much fun!

I be-bopped around lots of blogs and websites.  So many companies and designers put so much effort into making great challenges and inspiration for National Scrapbook Day.  I loved all of it!!  Thank yous to everyone who went all out :)


I made this page using Scrapbook and Cards Today's National Scrapbook Day sketch inspiration from their blog.   I'm usually always up for a two-page layout, but I liked the way this one came together much better as just one page.  I used mostly their amazing, amazing, amazing Hello Beautiful scrapbook kit.  It all fits so nicely together and is just perfect for these favorite gnome photos!!


I have actually had that large "paintbrush" sticker embellishment (Rebecca Sower, I believe!) for probably more than 10 years!  I've almost donated it a few different times, but it finally found its forever home on this page.  So fun and perfect to go with Lil Monet's paintbrush behind his back :)


That "delight" word is in acrylic, and it's so fantastic!  I love it.  I want a hundred words like that : )


The three hearts are actually a pre-made embellishment from Crate Paper - also a part of the Hello Beautiful kit.  They looked like they needed full shaker hearts, so I took the lazy way and made them faux-shaker hearts by gluing sequins randomly : )  (A little tip from me that you can snag!)


The tags behind the hearts have journaling on the backsides.  The gnome was designed by Richard Chappini of Ohio and was a part of a "Gnome and Garden" exhibit in the Holden Arboretum back in 2011.

One more Happy National Scrapbooking Day (er... Weekend!) to everybody!!
