National Scrapbooking Day

Saturday May 7th was National Scrapbooking Day.  Since I am always looking for a good excuse to play with paper, that is the one I chose for crafting my day away!  Danna picked me up in the  morning and we went and picked out granite for her new kitchen (almost as much fun as playing with paper).  Then to Memories of Time for an afternoon of make and takes, shopping, visiting and shopping (Oh, did I already say that?).  LOL  Then, as it is "Scrapbooking" day, home to do a scrapbook with some much neglected photos.  These pics are from Winchester Bay, OR.  I took them when my son and his girlfriend flew here from Oklahoma a year ago for my DH's 50th birthday.  My son's best friend (Danna's son) is in a couple also.  Now, I like pictures to do the story telling.  I am a terrible journaler (thank goodness for Create with TLC and Elegant Wordart or I would have no sentiments)!


The title and flourish is cut on my cricut.  The cartoon embellishments are all from the
Our Craft Lounge set 'Bubbles.  It is the perfect set for any ocean including photos!  I have colored the images with copics, cut them out, covered them with glossy accents to make them look wet and then placed them on the page with pop-dots.  Just love those turtles!
Sorry for the poor photo.  Just not set up for taking pics of 12 X 12 sheets.
