National Scrapbook Day Hop!


Welcome to my blog! Hopefully you have already started at the beginning, but if not, please visit Sketch Support!

I have already been having so much fun for NSD. I am attending crops 3 weekends in a row, socializing, scrapping, and enjoying some baby free time. =P I hope to have a lot more posts on the way. Please keep reading to see my take on the Sketch Support NSD Sketch and..... to enter for a fabulous sketch book!

We had this great sketch from Allison to celebrate National Scrapbook Day with:

And here is my creation:



These photos are from Tobin's first adventures at the park. He loved the baby swings but really wasn't too sure about the slide (now he loves it).

Products used: Patterned paper: Crate Paper (die cut), Bo Bunny (blue dotted), October Afternoon (striped); Stickers: Echo Park

Variation 1: Clearly I cut the sketch down to one page. I really liked the left page to use with one vertical and one horizontal photo.

Variation 2: I moved the journaling over to make room for this cute swing sticker.


Leave a comment on this post to be entered to win one of the Sketches for Scrapbooking books. The winner may choose which volume.

Next on the hop please visit Katrina.
