NSD - National Scrapbook Day
Posted 4th May, 2008 in
Believe it or not, scrapbooking has its very own day of the year -- National Scrapbook Day, and it was this past Saturday, May 3rd. In honor of this sort of ridiculous holiday (if you can call it that) I decided to take a trip over to our local store, Scrap Etc. and support the industry by spending a little money on scrapbook supplies that I'm sure I don't need. While I was there, I stuck around for a class taught by the talented Katie Burnett and created this version of her "Play Banner":
Mine is a two-sided "Ayla Banner" that I think I'll use to hang in the front doorway when we celebrate her birthday this year...and maybe every year as a reminder of her baby-years as she grows up.
Thanks for the kick-start Katie! I think maybe through this project I've overcome my distaste for butterflies...they are kind of fun to use.

Love what you did with the banner! Adding the Precious Ayla was the perfect touch!!
Great to see you.
Love your banner! Works perfectly with Ayla's name. I do love the butterfly with the cut out body.
Oh man! I totally forgot. I got the e-mail from Scrap Etc. about the extra 10% off and I meant to go check it out since I hadn't been in there for a long time. Darn. Your banners are very cute and I like your idea of using them at birthdays-- it's neat to have those little traditions that are unique to you and your family.
