National Scrapbooking Day

Today is National Scrapbooking Day, is anybody playing along? I found a couple of sites that are playing along firstly Shimelle is posting challenges on her blog here or Scrap Whispers are posting challenges here and Big Picture Classes  have 12 hours of challenges arranged. As the weather doesn't look too promising today, I'll probably play along with some of them.
I have finally put a couple of photos onto some of the pages I completed last weekend, I still have more pages to decide what photos to add. The first completed page is one inspired by a sketch over on Scrapbook and Cards today,  this was the sketch

I loved this sketch and it was perfect for using scraps of paper, I can see me using it over and again. Fortunately one of the challenges for National Scrapbook day over on Scrap Whispers is to use up leftovers. On this page the grey mat behind the title is left over from the last blog entry I made(I gutted the grey card stock that was the base), the oriental squares are from this page. The braid has been kicking around forever, and to cover a mistake I stamped the lantern on some patterned paper from goodness knows where.The blue rub ons are from an oriental kit I bought from QVC about 4 years ago. I think this qualifies.  Here is my page

Ooh what a wonderful sketch for using up scraps! And you've made a great job of this - what dramatic photos. Thanks for playing along with us at Scrap Whispers. See you at the next challenge!
