Bazzill Basics Paper (inter)National Scrapbook Day Blog Hop Event #bazzillbasics #NSD
Happy National Scrapbook Weekend! The Bazzill Basics Design team is excited to celebrate with you! Today we want to share some inspiration to help kick off your weekend creativity!

Now, let me remind you, I am a card maker. Yes, it is true, I began this journey as a scrapbooker, but the simple truth is, I was WAY better at card making and they sort of took over my life. But, JUST for you guys, I decided to create an actual scrapbook layout since, well, it is National Scrapbook Day. For reals, I totally did it. (This is a rare sighting folks, I assure you! You may want to take out your cameras, however, do so slowly and quietly as to not frighten the card maker.)

I was inspired by my amazingly talented friend Beck Beattie to give a watercolor background a shot and then layer stuff over it. I am a clean and simple girl to the core, so I kept it fairly simple, but I absolutely LOVE this photo and I actually am thrilled with how this layout highlights it. It tells the story. My story. Our story. And that, my friends, is what scrapbooking is all about, isn't it? For reals, though. I do have some hidden journaling on the pull out tag behind the photo, but I wanted to keep the page within the space I had intended and kind of like that the journaling is just my own, tucked away in there.
