National Scrapbook Day

So National Scrapbook Day has come and gone and what did you do??? I spend the weekend with great friends and others at a LSS scrapping to our hearts content.

In July - it will be my parents 62 wedding anniversary and I have been working on a layout that I found in a blog that I really loved!! Sooooo...I have it to show you, it is a picture of them on their wedding day (18 & 20 years old) and another at a wedding dancing (which they never do).

I have been working on some projects that I would like to share with all of you...I have had an old photo album full of old pictures if my brother and sister and myself and have been trying to get them into a scrapbook.  I finally finished my other projects that I had been working on for others and decided that this album will be for ME.  I am trying to do it in chronological order as best as I can, but I have some dynamite layouts that I have been wanting to try.  Some of them require vertical photos so some of the pages are a bit out of order. but here goes...

I have also attended my FIRST class that I have ever gone to in my scrapbooking career...I have been wanting to learn to make a mini - album and my LSS was holding a class on making a tri - fold acrylic album.  I had the time of my life and enjoyed it so...This is what we made...

I think that it turned out pretty good for the first timer!!

Besides scrapbooking, my son has returned from his 6th deployment and I was fortunate to go nd be able to see him only by the grace of God... Thank you Marianne...This is the thank you that I will be giving her for helping me out...

Well...I had better get scrapping  and finish my project for tonight, which is getting my scrapbook/crafting area in order so that I can continue to do my thing tomorrow...I completely turned it around today and am very happy with it...

Well...until we meet again, Peace out and may God Bless you all always!!! O:).
