A little information about this special day……

National Scrapbook Day was started in 1994 by the well-known album company Creative Memories, and is celebrated on the first Saturday in May. Since 1994 scrapbookers all over the country and world celebrate their passion for Scrapbooking on this day!! There are even online groups petitioning the US Government to make National Scrapbook Day a federal holiday!

Now, you have probably already seen the FABULOUS sketch, created by our own Gloria Stengal. We would like you to use it for your progressive layout or card. Also, please use this quote somewhere on your layout or card:

“Life holds special magic for those who dare to dream….” Author unknown.

And you are probably wondering what my item is to put on your creation. Are you ready??? I would like you to use:


Anyway that you can, add some ribbon onto your layout. And since ribbon is my item to add, I am offering ribbon as a RAK. Now to be eligible for my RAK, please become a follower of my blog (if you are not already), & leave a comment for me in this post. I will randomly choose a winner at the end of the bloghop.

Now, here is Gloria’s sketch:


And here is my creation using all the elements that you will find along the way.

Have fun on our Cropstop Hop! Make sure to link your completed project in the Cropstop Blog by the deadline listed above!

Now hop on over the very talented Lisa’s blog to see what she has in store for you today.
