National Scrapbook Day with Bella Blvd.

Hi There,

Happy National Scrapbook Day! Are you doing anything special to celebrate?
We are celebrating National Scrapbook Day over at Bella Blvd. with all about me layouts. Stop by the Bella Blvd. blog to see what the Design Team came up with and for your chance to win.

Every hour on the hour the design team will be showcasing their "All About Me" layouts and be sure to leave a comment for your chance to win 1 of 2 giveaways. Yay!

Here is what I came up with as my "Me" page.
I rarely have photos taken of just me or scrap about myself. Right after we were given this assignment I had a friend come
in to town and I asked her to take some photos of me. I embraced the challenge and learned to let go a little and have fun.
My favorite colors that represent my style right now are a mix of teal, orange and yellow. The Sand and Surf collection was
perfect for complimenting my style and I had fun adding in some crochet hearts and feathers pieces too. A new technique
that I taught myself while making this layout was I ran out of chipboard alpha's (Pickle Juice) for my title, so I took another
alpha I had on hand (Pony) and wrapped it with Designer gray chevron tape. I love the look!

Sand and Surf: GPS, Borders
Cardstock Stickers: Alpha + Bits, Miniatures
Chipboard: Sienna Alpha - Pickle Juice, Pony
High Five Alphas: Black White High Fives
Love And Marriage: Borders

1. What are your top 5 supplies/products that you cannot scrap without?
Sewing machine, foam squares, enamel dots, silhouette cameo, kraft or white cardstock
2. What do you listen to while you scrap? TV, music, or do you do your best working in silence?
I always have Pandora radio on (usually Bruno Mars or Maroon 5) or tv shows that I have DVR'd
3. What snacks and/or drinks are beside you when you're scrapping?
If I am cropping at home it is usually fruit and water, but if I am at a crop and they have junk food
I am bad. It is so hard to say no when it's in front of me. Peanut MM's are a fave.
4. When do your do your best scrapping? Are you a morning scrapper, a late night scrapper, or do you find time during the day?
I scrap throughout the day in between errands and chores, I usually have a project on my desk at all times and work on it here and
5. Be honest. Where do your layouts go once you're done with them? In albums, in piles, or shoved in random places?
I'm glad you asked that question, I haven't put my layouts into albums for years (hoping I'm not the only one).
They go into piles and I have a cabinet they get shoved into sometimes.

I hope you enjoyed learning a little bit more about me, be sure to head on over to the Bella Blvd. Blog  to learn more about the design team and leave a comment for your chance to win!
