National Scrapbooking Month

Today is the last day of National Scrapbooking Month which means we will be saying goodbye to all the "Live Beautifully" paper, cut above kit and stamp set. I have had a great time with this paper and have seen so many beautiful scrapbook layouts, cards and projects with a wide range of photos and occasions like proms, weddings, vintage, family, just to mention a few.

Thank you to the wonderfully creative ladies who attended the Live Beautifully Workshops I hosted, It was great spending the time and seeing the wonderful pages you created  and hearing your stories you shared.

Now just because National Scrapbooking Month is over does not mean that the art of creating is, so let's Get Your Scrapbooking On.
