Happy National Scrapbook Day

i hope you are finding ways to scrap today and create new memories, too....
today i wanted to talk a little about simple design and remembering why we started doing this to begin with~
i notice as i have evolved as a scrapbooker i put more and more stuff on my pages and Sussies kits are incredible for that.... take the May Kit for example~ FULL of goodies and believe me i used a bunch of them on my pages this month, as did the other designers.... you can check out all the beautiful pages and projects here...
but sometimes we need to just remember why we took the photo and tell the story. maybe you are like me and you love embellies (you do get sussies kits, right???) but what if today on NSD you challenge your self to just keep it simple and tell some stories you are meaning to tell, but haven't yet....
here is a page i made last month~ just a few embellies, a simple design, but the story is all on there. the photo stands outs and it makes me smile to remember that day :) those girls have grown, but this memory will stay with me for a long time...

okay, so Lara tells me if i can find a lot of scrappers who may want to win the April Add-on that i used here on my page for NSD she might give one away *wink* *wink* so post a little comment and send your friends, too :)
take care~
