Happy National Scrapbook Day | Blog Hop

Happy National Scrapbook Day! I can't think of a better way to spend today than cutting and pasting! Today, I'm sharing a challenge over on the Studio Calico blog and I'm also joining in with some of my favorite creatives and getting this party started with a fun and inspirational blog hop!!

Currently:
Favorite YouTube clip: Swiftamine on Saturday Night Live  | Listening to: Ed Sheeran on repeat | Watching: nothing. I just can't find a favorite show right now! Any suggestions? | Reading: Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult | I can eat this everyday: nachos, nachos and more nachos. Oh, and sweet potatoes too! | Favorite drink at 4pm: Hmm...it used to be coffee but ever since Whole 30, I would probably have to go with a tall glass of ice water! | On my wish list: A lazy and relaxing weekend full of giggles, hugs and crafting! | Enjoying: Sunny spring days and our porch swing. | Favorite quote right now: Start each day with a grateful heart. | Smiling about: The possibility of adding a puppy to our family TODAY! | My favorite project for this year is: I think my favorite project this year has to be my Project Life albums. I've really enjoyed the freedom of creating various sized albums with tons of photos. Project Life will always be one of my favorite projects because it reminds me to stop and capture our everyday. It reminds to document those little details before they fade with time. 




To celebrate today, the super sweet and talented Wilna has put together a beautiful cut file to share with you all! You can download the free file here.  Wilna is just so amazingly talented, isn't she?!

                               

I wish I could create and share like Wilna, but I just don't have those skills! But what I do have is a craft room FULL of supplies  that I would love to share with YOU!! Leave a comment below telling me your favorite thing about NSD and I will select one random person to send a fun goodie bag to!! 

Now it's your turn to hop on over to Jen's's blog! Be sure to hop around and check out all the amazing ladies and inspiration! Have an amazing and creative day! 

xoxo

  4. WOW!! What wonderful and beautiful pictures!!!! I never heard anybody explain Project Life the way you did. I bought an album and a few things to get started last year but never did. Now after hearing you explain it I am most definitely going to get everything out and get to Project Lifing!!!!
    My favorite part of NSD is all the new inspiration I find online from the wonderful blog hops and challenges and of course all the great sales!!! Thank you for the chance to win!!

  5. My fave things is seeing all the pretty projects, and because it is spring, so many of them have pastel colors which are my favorite. And I'm also noting that everyone on this hop has a very streamlined white background blog design, so that has me thinking about changing mine up as well. You never know what you will see on NSD, do you?

I can choose to participate online, in-person, by myself, or in a group. I'm able to check out new YouTube videos, Pins, Blog Hops, Craft Retreats, and sales!! I'm building up shopping carts and looking at adding some classes (first time) to my agenda. :)

    My favorite thing abt NSD is the festive atmosphere with giveaways around each corner and inspiration oozing out everywhere!!! lol... I live in rural Idaho where I do not get to attend any papercrafting shows or conventions, so big online events are the next best thing. Thanks so much for sharing your extra goodies and for the chance to win!!!!
