American Crafts National Scrapbook day hop



It's a blog hop with American Crafts to celebrate National Scrapbook Day! We're sharing ideas for challenges, inspiration, and giveaways to make your day {and weekend}a fun celebration of scrapbooking your memories. 

I had so much fun playing with the brand new Mayberry line - it's got lots of fun touches like chalkboard accent stickers, and real {not printed} burlap texture on the thickers and tags!

Rainbow hues are very popular right now - my challenge to you today is to incorporate at least five colors from the rainbow in a layout! I've used red, orange, yellow, green and blue in mine. It's a fun way to create vibrant layouts filled with color. Last weekend, I made a red velvet cake from scratch to share, and I had to photograph it! If you haven't made red velvet before, here's a link to my favorite recipe for it! {though I cute back to just one bottle of food coloring...}

One last thing before you move on - I'm offering up a chance to win all of these thickers - I put them up for the last hop, and the winner never contacted me to have them shipped, so I thought I'd offer up another chance to win them. But please, please leave some way of contacting you, either in the comment or through your blogger profile would be great! 

To enter for a chance to win all fifteen sets of thickers, comment with your contact info {or make sure it's available in your profile, before 11:59 Sunday, May 5. I'll choose a winner by random number generator on Monday or Tuesday!


Good luck and Happy National SCrapbook Day!
