11 years and NSD!

Hello everyone..happy May 2! What is so special about May 2? It's Heintje's and my 11 year anniversary!! Exactly 11 years ago today, 2 became 1..haha..cheesy! He is working today and we have a birthday party to go to tonight. Hopefully we can celebrate sometime this week with yummy dinner and a movie.

Today is also National Scrapbook Day. I told Heintje we need to get married again on a different day since I'm always missing out on NSD. Priorities, right! There were many places online that are hosting challenges and such. This year I used the challenges hosted by Scrap for a Cure. These girls rock. I love how they give back to the community and donate part of their proceeds to charity. WTG, Patti and Diana!!

This first layout is for Challenge #5, create a fun border. I esp. wanted to use these pictures today since it's our anniversary! This was taken at the Gala a couple months ago. Just like prom..haha!

The next layout is based on Challenge #1, use a sketch. It's a sketch created by Becky Fleck from Page Maps. I love how easy and versatile it is!! Journaling is about how Jordan stayed home from school when they were having a field trip because of his out of control coughing!! Poor dude. I felt so bad, so I left work early and we had a date a Subway. YUM!

Finally, this last layout is for Challenge #7..doodle. I didn't do much doodling here, just outlining the 4 photo corners and the center PP (which is actually packaging from K&Co). Back in March, we took Heintje's cousin from the PI to SF. Cool day!! This picture was taken atop Twin Peaks.

This is it for now, hopefully I can get more challenges done later today!! Woohoo..I love scrapping!!!

**eta....Here is another layout I completed. Challenge #8 was to use fabric..I created a yo-yo flower with fabric and backed it with medical gauze...LOL! Jasmin looking oh so cool in her bug eye glasses!

Okay, here is another one, Challenge #6...scrap not so perfect pictures. Blurry pictures, goofy pictures, and the one of my SIL was smeared post-printing. I need to reprint it, sorry, Ate Grace! New Year's day, we all went to watch Bolt. Even my MIL enjoyed it! :)

**eta #2....last one for the night. Challenge #3 was to use a whole sheet of rubons. Since I don't have very many rubons anymore...I'm rubon challenged..LOL, I used older sheets from the Creative Imaginations line. They are little square booklets with about 15 pages in them. A few friends gathered and split up our packs so we can have a variety. FUN stuff! Here is Jassy in one of her moods...her moods that get her in trouble! I've had that "tempermental" sticker forever and a year, I"m so glad to finally use it! Thanks, Jasmin..LOL. Anyway, all those flowers and the flourish along the left side are rubons.

This is it for NSD. I don't think I can get another done in 45 minutes, scanned and uploaded, so I"m calling it DONE! Stick a fork in it. THANKS so much Scrap for a Cure for the fun challenges! Now that I finally delurked on the boards, I'll hop on the blog challenges, too!! YIPPPEEE!!!
