National Scrapbook Day Blog Hop with American Crafts


Good morning and happy National Scrapbook Day!

To celebrate today American Crafts is having a blog hop ♥ where each of us will present a challenge and hope that you'll be inspired to create something new.


For my challenge today I wanted to scrap some pictures I'd had in my pile for a while so I pulled out these old ones of my girls from last summer. Sarah was thrilled to know that she could swim with the particular kind of cast they gave her after she broke her arm at gymnastics camp!

I created this page using lots of the new Yes Please line from Amy Tangerine.  I added some yellow paint to the sun/cloud sticker and cut the kraft clouds from the Yes Please paper.


The circle grid is from some of the Yes Please stickers. I simply pulled the sticker "extra" and left the round stickers on the backing. 


I then added lots of sentiment stickers, my journaling and raised my "today" title with foam adhesive. 


My challenge to you: create a layout using at least 3 pictures that are at least 6 months old. Please share your creations with us on our Facebook page! We'd love to see what you create.

Here is the lineup for today's hop:

Becky Williams ***you are here

From here you will head on over to Jen Chesnick's blog.

Have fun hopping and Happy National Scrapbook Day!
