A Very Productive National Scrapbook Day...

When National Scrapbook Day rolls around each year, it seems like I always have something else important to do. Not this year! Well, of course there were things that I could have been doing, but I just didn't. I took the  whole day and scrapped and played on line! I did pre-make a few layouts on Friday for the Big Picture Classes' 10K Celebration on Instagram:
I saw an idea for inspiration in one of the youtube videos that I watch while cleaning and working around the house, on nicmackin's channel , for using those old scrappy mags we all have kicking around before we get rid of them. She makes up kits from her stash and tosses an old magazine in with her kits, to draw on for inspiration, then tosses it or sends it off to a new home after she has drawn all of the inspiration she can. I used an old Simple Scrapbooks special issue magazine for most of these layouts, except this one:

 A closer look at the other individual layouts:


I still need to add journaling to this one:

Most of these layouts came from this kit: 

In non-scrappy news, we are dealing with the hustle and bustle of school ending, and we just got past our local spring Strawberry Festival:
The twins had to have candy apples:

I, on the other hand, "had to have" a red velvet funnel cake...because I have to try it if it is Red Velvet anything:

I have to say, though-it was soooo sweet!  I couldn't eat all of it, but that is probably a good thing. I will leave you for today with a selfie I snapped with Natalie:

And yes, I do realize my bra strap is showing, but, this is real life, and I only got one shot! I'll be back in the next day or two to share more of my crazy life and NSD productivity.
