DigiScrap Parade May 2015 :: In The Garden

The DigiScrap Parade is a fun “hopping” experience for scrapbookers and storytellers wherein they can “hop” about a series of blogs to gather pieces to a coordinating collection to scrap their memories.  It is meant to be a sampling of products from wonderful designers in the community, offered quarterly.

I am happy to be a part of the May 2015 hop, “In The Garden” which features a collection rich with cheerful color, texture and garden goodies. I was inspired to create a sample of pieces rooted in the tending of our personal gardens: growing the best things in life.

For more information and for all the links to the hop, please stop by the DigiScrap Parade website.

If you’re following the Parade route from start to finish you should have arrived here from Krystal Hartley’s blog and your next stop will be Peppermint Creative.  If you get lost along the way, simply head back to the DigiScrap Parade website to view the master list and get back on track.

Here’s my contribution to In The Garden:

Here’s to growing a happy life, planting dreams and playing in the dirt!  Happy Scrapping!


National Scrapbooking Day 2015 :: The Happenings

Happy Happy National Scrapbooking Day weekend!!

I find myself writing that warm and happy hello every year at the dawn of May and yet it so perfectly captures this special time that we storytellers and memory keepers celebrate.  The fun oozes out of the sides and over the top and one day becomes several and one Something To Look Forward To becomes Many.

And so I enthusiastically exclaim many “Happy Happy”s as we Storytellers, we Memory Keepers, we Family Historians, we Documentarians and Curators, we Artists and Journalers celebrate our love for scrapbooking and storytelling.

And here is the annual Everything You Need to Know about what is happening for Sara Gleason products this weekend.  (All images are linked).





There are also opportunities for additional savings in the annual PYS Savings Guide!










I hope you enjoy this weekend of celebrating Story!  My hope is to spend some time soaking up inspiration and maybe even scrap some stories!  Happy Happy!
