Post-NSD Trauma

This past Saturday was National Scrapbook Day and I particpated. Man did I participate. I'm so tired this morning that I can hardly type. I had a great time participating in the NSD cyber crop. I didn't get as much done as I had planned, but I learned some new techniques and stretched my scrapping wings quite a bit. You can check out my gallery at's gallery. I just have to show you what I'm most proud of here, though. This is a two-page spread about mine and my son's participation in two major Fiesta events: The Battle of Flowers Band Festival and the Battle of Flowers Parade. The left side contains the program from the Battle of the Bands and the right side has the participation patch and some pictures. By the way, his high school band won the Battle of the Bands and best entry in the public school section of the parade. Proud mama? You bet!

Now, doing the two-pager didn't really stretch me, but this one did. I had never made an ATC (Artist Trading Card), but it was brought up as a challenge this weekend and I thought, what the heck! This is my first ever ATC:

This picture was taken in 1991. Oh so long ago and so much hair ago :-).

Part of the reason I'm so exhausted this morning is that I stayed up late both Saturday and Sunday nights. Saturday I was up late downloading NSD digital freebies from all over the 'Net. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with all of it, but I got some really cool stuff!

Y'all have a great day!

The layouts are great and that trading card is terrific! Glad you got some scrappy time in! :-)
