National Scrapbooking Day + Blog Candies

Hello crafty friends!  National Scrpabooking Day falls on the first Saturday of May, but I'm planning on celebrating for an entire month.  Care to join me?

I started out as a scrapbooker, but I have to admit that I haven't been as diligent with scrapbooking as before.  Well, it's easier to make cards, right?  But it is a fact that scrapbook pages last longer.  Scrapbooking is one of the best ways to preserve those special memories, and it never fails to leave a smile on the faces of anyone who lays eyes on those pages.  Tears even.  That's why every month of May, I challenge myself to focus on scrapbooking. 

And I challenge you too, to take out those photos gathering dust from storage and put them in scrapbook pages.  Each scrapbook page you share with us will count as an entry for these blog candies:

Decorate Life:  Scrapbook Book

Soft Spoken 8 x 8 Scrapbook Kit (Me and My Big Ideas)

Making Memories 8 x 8 Cardstock Pad

Decorate Life:  Celebrations Book

Love & Romance 8 x 8 Scrapbook Kit (Me and My Big Ideas)

Live Loud Collection (Imaginisce) includes Chipboard Stickers, 3D Stickers and Clear Stamp

Travel Transparent Overlays (Making Memories)

I have only three rules: 
  1. Link your BLOG ENTRY THAT FEATURES YOUR PROJECT, and not the homepage of your blog.
  2. Make sure your blog entry is dated May 1st to 31st.
  3. Show some love to our participants by leaving comments.  Scrapbooking is not an easy thing to do, and your comments will definitely keep us going.
On June 1st, I will draw two winners, and they have 24 hours to respond. If I don't get a response after that, I will draw a new winner/s.
There is no limit on how many scrapbook pages/projects you can enter.  Just remember, the goal this month is to preserve those special memories.  The more pages you make, the better... and the more inspiration and ideas you can share as well.  That is already an achievement in itself, don't you think?  The blog candies are just the cherry on top.
Can't wait to see your pages!
Who's going to be first?
