I hope all of my scrapbook friends had a Happy National Scrapbooking Day on Saturday! It started out slow here scrapbook wise. We are just so busy on the weekends! But Evan, Erin and I did sit down and scrapbook together for a little while around the dining room table. I managed to finish one layout for a sketch challenge at The Paper Bakery, which I am going to try and get some photos of it today to share this week. I also followed along on their blog hop.
In addition to the Paper Bakery, I signed up for the big NSD happenings at Big Picture Classes (formerly Big Picture Scrapbooking) and received all of the challenges in my inbox. May still try to do a few of those even though the due date will be up. And I wrote down a few challenges from Two Peas in a Bucket, that will have to be done at later date as well.
So all in all, did accomplish some scrapbooking!
Today though, I want to share a layout I made for a challenge in a private Facebook group consisting of members of a former scrapbook site I used to love but is now closed. The Cropper's Cottage.
My friend Shalini has gotten everyone excited about scrapbooking again by introducing weekly challenges within our group. This layout is for the black and white + flower challenge...
In other scrapbook news, The newest "issue" just went up at Paper Issues. The theme is "Hope Chest" and the sponsor is Pink Paislee.
One lucky winner will receive a Hope Chest prize pack and one winner will receive a Cottage Farms prize pack! Check out the post *Here* to see how you can win.
I am planning to link up a few layouts myself, and am excited to be sharing my design team introduction post on their blog this upcoming Friday!
And project scrap room clean up is well under way...finally! I decided my windows needed a good Spring cleaning. And as you can see from the blog header photo, I have nice big windows. Seven of them that wrap around my scrap porch. So will be finishing that up today, finishing the dusting and organizing and vacuuming as well. Love a nice clean, organized scrap room!
Hope you have a Happy Monday!
