You might be asking what is NSD?

For those non-scrappers out there, it is National Scrapbooking Day and it is held on the first Saturday in May every year. Last year I had the wonderful opportunity to get together with some fun ladies from the CKMB and scrap together in Lancaster. This year I didn't celebrate with an online crop or anything, but my sisters, sister-in-law, and mom got together for a craft night. We try to do this periodically and my craft of choice is scrapbooking.

I only got one 2 page layout finished and I have yet to take a picture of it.

I just recently submitted some pages to CK magazine, so I can't share them here with you yet. Here are some other recent layouts, though....

This page was a scraplift from my scrappy friend, Kristen's layout. I loved how she punched squares out of scraps, so I tried it, too.

On this layout, I used rub-on stiches from K & Company. I'd never used them before, but I really like the way they turned out. I think they truly look like real stitches without all the trouble ~ I'll definitely use them again....

I love scrapbooking too! One of my friends down here hosts one every Friday and it has got me a few pages into JJ's is really fun and my sister does amazing scrapbooking things!! I think she's taking a break, but was a CM consultant and hosted amazing crops...anyhoo, wish we lived closer to scrap together:(

Your scraplift looks great! I love how you expanded it to 12x12.
Not to mention that photo is hilarious!
