National Scrapbook Day Blog Hop!


WELCOME to the 
National Scrapbook Day Blog Hop!!

You should of arrived here from Sukie, but
if you did not, you can start at Jessica in the beginning!

Today, some of the best Scrapbooking bloggers I 
know teamed up to present a 
blog hop to celebrate ALL us Scrapbookers 
National Scrapbook Day!

Some info on National Scrapbooking Day:

Each year on the first Saturday in May, it is National Scrapbook Day. 

Also known as National Scrapbooking Day, on this day thousands of people get together all over the country to celebrate with scrapbooking parties and share their talents with others. 

Scrapbooking dates back to the 15th century.

As per Wikipedia: “Scrapbooking is a method for preserving personal and family history in the form of a scrapbook. Typical memorabilia include photographs, printed media, and artwork. Scrapbook albums are often decorated and frequently contain extensive journaling. Scrapbooking is a widely practiced pastime in the United States.”

Scrapbooking is a hobby of preserving memories and at the same time it provides a strong social network.

  ”Scrappers”, as they are called, get together and scrapbook at each others homes, local scrapbook stores, scrapbooking conventions, retreat centers and have even gone on cruises.  Together they share tips and ideas and enjoy the social outlet.

Scrapbookers are often referred to as "Paper Hoarders".

Now, who's ready to celebrate with some 

Let's get to hopping!!!
One of my sweetest memories is when I would sing "You Are My Sunshine" to my son and he would join in. I created this layout and sunbeam using the Cricut Artbooking cartridge. The title is from the Paper Piecings by Nikki "You are my sunshine" stamp set and I added verses of the song (created in Word) in the 2 smaller spaces.

This is was page 2 of my layout. :-(
I left the room for just a second and when I returned.....had an awesome paper jam in my Cricut, turned it off and back on to reset and now my paper/mat won't load. Any suggestions??

Thanks so much for stopping by to celebrate National Scrapbook Day with us! I have a little something up for grabs to show my appreciation. Leave a comment here and check back on Wednesday to see if you were the winner!

Happy National Scrapbooking Day!!!


  1. What a cute layout!! I am sorry about Cricut jamming. I hope it was a glitch and you can be back to crafting again soon. Happy National Scrapbook Day!

  2. Happy National Scrapbook Day! Love the LO,sweet pictures! Sorry I can't help with your machine and it's jam. I'm a follower!

  3. Very pretty layout! I adore those collage style layouts! Not sure why your Cricut messed up your second page but when mine doesn't cooperate, I shut it down completely and then turn it back on which corrects a lot of the problems. If not, maybe call Cricut, they are very good at troubleshooting their machines! Happy National Scrapbook Day!

  4. Oh, sorry about the Cricut Mat...I have no idea what to do but I hope you get it fixed soon! Love the layout and the song!
