My Pink Stamper NSD Designer's Choice Blog Hop

Happy National Scrapbook Day!  I hope you are enjoying all the activities today and participating too :)  If you have just arrived from the amazing Shelley, you are on the right track.  If not, make sure to start at My Pink Stamper so you don't miss a thing!!


My project today is actually a scrapbook page!  I decided I would try to spend the day making pages since I am so very far behind on my scrapping.  But I have a feeling I'll be working on some other projects too :)


My kids were acting like monkeys, swinging on a bar at the zoo (11 years ago!) so I used the stamp that says Just Monkey-ing around :) 







Here are the details:
  • My Pink Stamper That's Punny-licious set
  • Elegant Edges mat cut at 10 1/2 inches
  • Create a Critter monkey cut at 3 inches
  • Imaginisce Paper
  • Blue Berry Trendy Twine
  • iRock Glam Rocks
Just a quick, easy page!  I haven't been feeling the best this week and just ran out of energy for a more involved project.  But I really hope you all enjoy!

Robyn is very graciously letting us all give away a stamp set today!  Thanks Robyn!!  So I encourage you to create today!!  Just leave a comment telling me what you are creating today or tomorrow and you will have a chance to win your own set of That's Punny-licous like I used today.  This will be open until Monday night and I will draw a winner on Tuesday. 

Now hop on over to the fabulous Edna (Create With Expression) to see what she came up with for you today :)  Here's the entire hop list in case you get lost along the way.


Helen <---you are here
Happy Scrapping!

  18. Hi, this is my first comment on your blog! :) I just bought a Cricut Expression yesterday online and I'm so excited for it to arrive. I'm new to the crafting world but got my interest really piqued through Pinterest. I'm looking forward to seeing all the projects you showcase on your site. In honor of National Scrapbooking Day I'm hoping to find some projects to create with my new purchase. Thank you!
