National Scrapbooking Day and a Hero Arts giveaway

Hello everyone - Yesterday was National Scrapbooking Day in the U.S. and I started the day meeting my parents and my sister Tami who just flew in from AZ.  I got a few photos before the parents went home and Tami & I went shopping at MOA.  I did a couple free projects at Archiver's.  Then I came home to work on a scrapbook page for a Hero Arts Blog giveaway using a lovely sketch by Kelly Rasmussen.  My page was going to have a photo of Mom and me but that one was blurry so I used the one with Tami and Mom.

It's been quite a while since I've done any scrapbooking so this was fun!  Used some great Hello Luscious Hero Arts stamps, including frames and flowers, yummy Basic Grey and BoBunny papers.  The title "Like Mother, Like Daughter" was printed from my computer onto vellum in Bodoni MT font.

Then today, I decided to do a card using the NSD sketch for another chance at the Hero Arts giveaway.  Have been meaning to get started on my Christmas cards so made this one:

Used all Hero Arts stamps, including a 2007 exclusive for Archivers (the postmarks and the text in the corner).  The "&" in both projects was cut from my new Silhouette SD - I've been having fun with it!  It will cut any font from my computer - this one was Bodoni MT.
Thanks for stopping by!
