OMG Didn't realize that National Scrapbook day is almost here again!!! I so can't wait!!!!!

What do ya'll do for the day?

I plan to do the online crop here which is always so much fun!!!! Also need stock up on snacks and such in hopes the fam won't bug the daylights out of me. lol

I can't wait till sb.com starts giving hints!!!! The wait always kills me!

I'll be sitting on my bottom through 2 little league games...sigh...of all of the days that my boys are not playing at the same time...! Luckily I should be home by 2 so I can spend the rest of the afternoon scrapping here at home. I know of at least two different crops I'd love to be at that weekend, but that probably won't happen (which is fine with one of them because they don't have Wi-Fi so I couldn't still participate on here then!)

I don't think I've scrapped since the last one!! I got a new job last year around that time, which is good but it's also INTENSE and I'm learning a LOT. I just haven't found my balance yet. I definitely want to participate again, tho, I love the challenges!

This will be my 4th year I think of actually participating.

They usually have several challenges that you have a certain amount of time to complete and then you post pics on a certain thread.

I've always had lots of fun and everyone is so nice!

There was an organization one with photo's. One was Home, One was to make a page from a sketch. There was one with washi tape and one with misting. There was. Think there's an all week mini album kind of thing too.

Every year they are a little different I think. But you use your own papers and supplies and such.

But the closer we get to the day the more we'll find out about what we might need I think.

I loved last year because you had all day to complete the challenges. It was the first year I was able to be a part of it because of the longer times to complete them. I hope they do it like that again this year.

I did the ScrapJazz challenges last year instead of these, but I came in at the end and incorporated all (all? most of?) the challenges here into just one LO. 'Cos I'm a bit of a nerd like that, and I had my scrap on by then.

Here it is:

I hope to get a challenge or 2 in that day. But it will be a crazy day with DS3 having a competition in the morning and prom that night. I have had a blast playing the past few years tho.

I always have a conflict. This year it is going away for an anniversary night away. So, at least that is fun, if not scrappy.

I just watch the information for this year NSD challenges. I might try some of these new challenges out. This will be my second year doing the challenges. I'd fun last year. I think I did about three or four layouts.

I have my regular monthly crop that day, but there is no internet signal and I'll be leaving before the challenges are posted.

It's tempting to bunk off and work on the challenges at home instead, but I can't really do that on NSD can I?

I wish NSD lasted an entire week! Of course, that means I'm grateful for the big weekly challenge. I try to complete that each year. However, since it can take me months to finish 1 LO anymore, having a longer opportunity to complete a challenge would be great.

And now that Princess had her say, I really liked the extension on challenges to 2 hours last year. That really is reasonable, considering all the prep work we're clued into in advance.

If I'm able, I'll play.

Looking forward to it!

I would just make a cute little card using my scrapbook goodies and take it over to her, inviting her to come celebrate NSD! That doesn't seem needy to me.

From what I can tell, I celebrated NSD for the last 4 days. My energy has been way up and, if I get chemo tomorrow, I'll be in no shape to participate next Sunday.

My prize= getting some scrapping done.

Anne, I'm glad you've been feeling good and have managed to scrap. The date is unimportant. Hey, I had a birthday meal out last night and my birthday is not till Thursday. But I share my birthday with my MIL (yup - that could be a recipe for disaster couldn't it? ) and they're away so we brought it forward. No biggie.

Good luck for the chemo and I hope it doesn't pull you down as much as you fear.

Thanks, Cindy, Rosey and Tina!

*I'm pretty sure I will still hang out here on May 3rd. I will just take the more relaxing option of watching the gallery refresh every ten seconds.

* Rosey! Happy Four Days Before your birthday! May Day! How fun is that?

Tina, I'm going to try, even if only social.

This year I am going to be working on some things. I am going to be cutting some things on my cameo. I am also in the process of organizing my cutting files on my computer so that I can save them. I have done NSD here & it was always so much fun.

Yah for me??? I was supposed to have two baseball games tomorrow (one for each boy), but my youngest just got diagnosed with Pink Eye tonight so no game for him tomorrow!!! I really don't want to miss my oldest's game because tomorrow is the first game where the kids start pitching a couple of innings and he's probably one of their best options for pitching. But if I have to miss it at least I will have some fun scrapping to do!!! ...makes up for me missing my Stampin Up demo's Stamp Club tonight...
