It's Officially {Inter}national Scrapbooking Day!

Today is {Inter}National Scrapbooking Day!  The sales, challenges, and freebies are in full swing today all over the Internet (and probably in real life too).  I've cleared with my husband to have a few hours to play without interruption, and a little bit of time to start my daughter on her first scrapbooking project too!  I have several stops to make today to pick up items on sale at, and a few kits I found at that are from a few different websites.  At, the games started Thursday night with a challenge assignment.  I'll be spending much of the day over there today too, as they have a new challenge that started last night, and chats with Jessica tonight.  Here's my take on Thursday night's challenge, which involved watching for little miracles throughout a 24 hour period, putting a layout together in under an hour, and doing it all by 8 pm Friday (here in Wyoming). It was a challenge, since I usually scrap after 8 (after the kiddos are in bed) and had to work all day Friday.  But I made it!
