*American Crafts National Scrapbook Day Blog Hop*

 



















Hi! Happy National Scrapbook Day!

Welcome to the American Crafts National Scrapbook Day  blog hop!
If you've come here from my sweet friend Patricia Roebuck's blog -
you're in the RIGHT spot!

I hope you're having  a great time hopping with us today!

Today I'm sharing a challenge I created just for today.
My challenge is "how to use multiple tags as a frame" around your project:



As you can see, I added tags on the left & right side, mimicking a "frame"
that surrounds my layout.  I had so much fun playing!

I used a combo of the newest release: Mayfair with some Dear Lizzy & Amy Tan :D

Here's a closer shot:




















Aren't those burlap Thickers DELICIOUS?
They're new, fun & I am in LOVE!
 
I also have a little give away for you!
Leave me a comment here on my blog about what you're doing

to celebrate NSD & I'll pick ONE lucky winner for my prize below:

 You have until Saturday, May 11th & I'll randomly select my winner,
so good luck!!!
