NSD Happenings...

Yup... this Saturday, May 3rd is "National Scrapbooking Day"! and of course there are celebrations all over the place this weekend!

Over at the CCAS Blog, we are having a celebration filled with inspiring challenges, lots of prizes and sharing of our passion for the craft of scrapbooking! We will be posting 9 challenges throughout the entire weekend, starting tomorrow morning, for everyone to partake in! We have an awesome grand prize of a Clip-It-Up for you to win!!! Come and check out the blog... we have been giving away prizes all week to get everyone excited!!! (Today we have some COOL blog candy up for grabs!)


We're celebrating at the International Scrapbooking Association with a weekend long crop with challenges, make n'takes, games and lots of prizes too! Come and check out all the fun starting tomorrow evening!!!

Hope to see everyone there!

Now.... to celebrate NSD this weekend, I'm giving away some blog candy too! Since I have been super lucky with receiving blog candy this past month of April, I thought I ought to give away some goodies of my own! Some Bazzill chipboard keys, 2 Prima journaling stamps, and some Hero Arts rhinestones and stamps set. ** Subject to my order going through tomorrow of course!

UPDATE: The one single Prima stamp was out of stock. I will replace it with some other goodies!

To enter into the blog candy draw, please leave a comment below before midnight on Sunday night (EST) and tell me what you are doing to celebrate NSD! I will post a winner of the goodies sometime early next week. Please leave me a link to your blog or your email address so I know how to contact you to claim your goodies!

    I'm scrapping at my fav LSS and i'll be at ccas and a few others! lol

  11. Since I just got back from Scrap Etc in Nashville, my family thinks I need to hang out with them this weekend instead of at the LSS. Can you believe them?? I'm going to spend the evenings cropping online at Busy Bee Scrapbooking.

  12. Well, I'm currently tidying up my craft room. Although I have to work on NSD, I want to complete a baby memory tin for my friends' newborn baby boy! I hope to have it finished by Monday. =)

  13. I plan on spending NSD teaching scrapbooking to a kids class - should be great - I love how they embrace it! Happy NSD all. LisaW
