Life Preservers Blog Hop

Scrapbooking is a wonderful creative outlet in our lives and our unique style makes our creations different. Everyone has their own reasons for scrapbooking, for me my hands love to play and create colourful embellies and my mind likes to think of new ideas and my heart likes to record all those sentimental moments that should be there for my children to cherish.
For National Scrapbooking Day the design team at Life Preservers Scrapbook Club wanted to bring a little extra excitement to May 1st. The 8 person team has partnered up to create 4 challenges, each challenge has a part a and b. So take the journey to see why spring has so many different reasons to celebrate National Scrapbook Day.

To be entered into a random RAK from me leave a comment and link me up with your layout (for LP girls, you can link from our gallery) To be entered in a draw from Life Preservers leave a comment on every blog (including LPS) and link up your creations.

Gabrielle and I have teamed up to provide you with your second challenge. Create a layout using no pattern papers, you will use ribbon instead, please use at least 5 different kinds. Now hop on over Gabrielle's blog to find out the second part of our challenge. For my example I used several types of ribbon and glued them down to a piece of paper and then cut it evenly into a rectangle, there is a photo to show this as well. Please feel free to use this idea, or any other part of my layout to complete this challenge.

Thanks so much for participating in Life Preservers first annual NSD blog hop, now carry on and have fun!

I need to post something in the month of April. So here it is....LOL.

Took Josh to see "How to Train your Dragon" tonight, it was in 3D. It was our first 3D movie and it was amazing, I was pleasantly surprised! What a fantastic movie, Josh told me to stop talking a few times but other than that our evening went really smooth. We went to Movie Palace and if you can believe it we were the only two people in there, kind of spooky actually. First time in that theatre for us too, I really liked the table in front of you so you could put your snacks down and the seats were very well cushioned. All in all an A+ night.

So quiet in the house, both kids are asleep in my bed, gosh I hope they saved some room for me, good thing we have a king. Hubby is at the trailer so it's all up to me for a few days.

Stay tuned for the blog hop on Saturday! National Scrapbooking Day!
