I hope everyone had a great crafty National Scrapbooking Day, and a great Mother's Day!

I did spend some time crafting, despite the fact that I should focus on a million other things.  I told myself I had to carve out as little as 15 minutes on crafting because hey, it's National Scrapbooking Day!

A few layouts were made.  The most happy part was to re-live the memories of those little moments.  I am the kind of scrapper who likes to tell everyday stories rather than documenting events.  Certainly birthday parties, vacation, trips to Disney are worth documenting, but if my album shows these bigger events only, I'm afraid I might forget my everyday life, which constitutes a much bigger part of my life.

I also tried to make a few cards.  I said "tried" because I didn't finish them over the weekend.  Oops.  But I'm happy to report that I finished one today.  It's a birthday card:

This card looks familiar to you?  It's very similar to one of the cards in the Kaleidoscope Workshop except I'm using Celebrate with Cake, this month's Stamp of the Month. :)

This card will go to a Taurus girl by the end of this month.  I mentioned that I have many cards to send out this month and I'm still catching up!

My card is linking up to the following:
Seize the Birthday - birthday and/or coloring
