National Scrapbook day

Did you know that today is National Scrapbook day? I'm sure that droves of people are running to their local craft stores to participate in crops in an effort to celebrate this esteemed holiday in proper style. I must confess, that while I am a card maker, I am not a scrabooker. I haven't made a single page, attended a crop or bought an album.

But today, this holiday brings a change. You see, The Design Monkeys were asked if we'd like to participate in a blog hop in honor of National Scrapbook Day. You see, in addition to the hop, Little Monkey's is offering a fabulous promotion and if you spend $50, you'll get a free stamp! ($15 value!!) Pretty cool if you ask me! So to commemorate the sale and this day, I have made my VERY FIRST scrapbook page. VERY FIRST. I was having trouble deciding what to do, I thought that a scrapbook page dedicated to the cats was a little sad. Since we don't have any kids, it would be an album of cats. Not that there's anything wrong with that, I'm sure there are beautiful scrapbooks full of cats.

So, I decided to make a page for a friend of mine who just had her 2nd baby. She sent some
awfully adorable pictures of her 2 kids and I thought it would be really cute ion a scrapbook page in frame.

Ok, so there aren't any pictures on the page nor is it in a frame. You see, my brother is making enlargements of the picture I want to use and doing some photoshop thing to it. However, he's off running the Pittsburgh marathon today or something like that... So, insert REALLY cute picture in the center and imagine it in the frame!

Have a happy scrapbook day and don't forget to head over to Store More Stamps!!

Now I just feel sad. My first foray into scrapbooking was for my dogs... Your page is way way way better! You are definitely a natural!
