National Scrapbook Day...

is May 2nd so... what are you doing??? I hope you're gonna spend the day scrapping or paper crafting. There's a lot going on here at Scrap Shotz too, so if you need some inspiration check us out.

Starting today and going until Sunday May 3rd is the first "Open Mic" Online Crop. That means ANYONE can post a challenge! C'mon, I know you all have wonderful challenge ideas just waiting to be posted. That's not all... there WILL be prizes! And the prizes will be for challengers AND for those who prefer to participate and not post one of their own. So why not become a member in the forum and join us for this fun and inspiring weekend.

Also, Sandy and the store is holding the second annual National Scrapbook Day Crop in Calgary. There are make-n-takes, goodie bags, product and technique demos, and the store on site for some fun shopping. This year is almost sold out. There are only a few spots left. If you are interested check out all the details here. Make sure to mark your calendars for next year. We'd love to see you.

For those of you who can't come to the NSD Crop in Calgary check out the store for the NSD Sale!! There are some great deals to be had for everyone!!

And, for some NSD inspiration, I have a challenge to get you started.

Create a layout or card using only patterned paper, no cardstock allowed. You can embellish however you like, but no cardstock.

Even my handmade flowers are made from patterned paper.

Post your project in the gallery or leave a comment here on the blog with a link to your creation. You never know, there may be a surprise in store for you ;)

Hope you have a "Scrappy" weekend!
