Happy May Day!!!

I can't believe that it's MAY 1st already!!! Where does the time go? May 1st means that this is also the first day of National Scrapbooking Month! I think that automatically makes my goal for the month to show you as many scrapbooking pages as I possibly can! This will be a little tough for me, but I think I can do it.

This also starts the new promotion from Stampin' Up! If you click on the picture below you can see all of the wonderful offerings they have to offer....such as: buy three packs of Designer Series Paper and get one free! This includes the Specialty paper - and that stuff is awesome; cardstock weight, textured, some has glossy images! Also - get your hands on a brand new stamp set that won't even be offered until JULY! How awesome is that? Jumble Alphabet - a nice mix of fonts and sizes. And, even better - sign up to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator yourself for just $75! No need to worry about layoffs, you can work around your own schedule, and you get product at a discount! There is no better time to sign up than now!

So - since it is National Scrapbooking Month, I'd like to ask - where to do you get your scrapbooking ideas from? I really like for layouts. But other than that ??? I have to admit, I don't do a lot of scrapbooking - even tho, that is the sole reason I started with Stampin' Up! I wanted to get my supplies at a discount and scrap all of my boys' memories - I just didn't realize all of the other great things that can be done with paper!

This month, I vow to you, my faithful blog readers, to show at least 3 scrapbook pages a week. Yikes - that's a big commitment! I feel like I'm shunning the cardmaking, decor crafting person inside of me....I know I can do it tho!!!

Okay - I'll be creating some pages tonight in the quiet hours at my house!

Just think of all the wonderful scraps with which you can make amazing cards :D I'm loving this idea...maybe it should be a challenge?!? I've been looking at splitcoaststampers for page ideas, and I subscribe to the better homes and gardens and simple scrapbooks...good ideas that need to be put to use!
