National Scrapbooking Day

Saturday May 1st was National Scrapbooking Day. It was a day for all scrapbookers to celebrate by taking out their paper supplies and tools to make creations. There were parties and challenges to be a  participant. I was following My Pink Stamper on Facebook and her blog. Over the course of the day there were twelve challenges for us to do. I was able to do three of them.

The first challenge was to make a Mother's Day card. Since I have four daughter and a daughter-in-law who are all mothers, I decided to make a card for each of them. Here are three of the five cards I made.














I made an envelope, but it is too small for the card that measures 6 inches by 6 inches.

Challenge # 8 Love My Color. For this we were to make something in a Monochromatic color with a flower. I made a card with some of the pink paper left over from the Mother's Day cards that I used to test the border punch.





The finally challenge was named Critter-licious. We were to make a card, page or project using animal or critter. I chose to make a double layout of one of my kittens watching  a chipmunk.
