3 Page Layout and NSD
Saturday is National Scrapbooking Day. Yeah! So many challenges and giveaways will be going on sponsored by most of the scrapbooking supply websites and message boards. I hope you will get to participate.
I'll be creating a layout for LOAD - Layout a Day. Think of LOAD as National Scrapbooking MONTH. There is a challenge or prompt every day plus opportunities for prizes as the month goes along. LOAD starts on Thursday, May 1. You can still sign up and use code ASAP for $10 off:

My layout today is actually a 3 pager! I have one traditional page and two pocketed pages to hold photos of all the pretty birds I saw at the Sylvan Heights Bird Park in eastern North Carolina.
One of my favorite parts of the park was the Landing Zone. You purchase a $1 popsicle stick covered with birdseed and entered a large netted area. The beautifully colored parakeets know exactly what that stick is for and soon cover your hand hopping over one another for the snack.
I wasn't all that organized and my purse kept falling down toward my left hand which held the stick. I was trying to take photos with the right hand. Finally I put everything down to get organized. When I went to pick the stick back up, it was gone! They had flown off with it. It was a lot of fun and I did get a couple of good photos
For the layout I used Stampin' Up!'s Sale-a-Bration paper from this year called Sweet Sorbet. The colors are perfect and I love all the small prints in this collection. They worked well cut into 4 inch squares for my pocket pages.
The collection had a matching stamp set so I used it to stamp out some flowers. The journaling is typed on vellum.
I have a process video on this layout at YouTube and here:
So what are your plans for National Scrapbooking Day? Thanks for watching!
