Yay!!! A day devoted to this wonderful creative quest. I agree with Gretchen McElveen who says she thinks we should get gifts for this day. Maybe I can do that with my dear husband. Today is also National Comic Book Day, so if I buy him a comic, maybe I can convince him to buy my scrappy purchase? {I think I would come out with the better deal there.}

So in honor of this wonderful holiday, I am getting a trip to my favorite scrapbook store, Scrapbook Territory, in Berkeley and then coming home to work on some more Cricut projects. I wanted to share with you a layout that I made recently. I love the Melody Ross collections from GCD Studios and this particular piece of paper was so pretty in itself that I didn't need to add too many embellies. I did add some Dear Lizzy crochet flower, an AC badge, a Wise Words sticker from GCD, and my all time favorite embellishment right now, some Art Life flowers. The alphas/numbers are from AC as well.

Oh, there is a butterfly and phrase piece from K & Company. I think it is important to take "snapshots" of where we are or what we love at this moment in life. It is fun to look back at these type of layouts and recall what things we had to have. My top six right now are home decorations with birds on them, costume jewelry and the new open way I have to display my collection, all the new books I have acquired regarding cooking and art, the clothing trend that is so feminine and pretty right now, and my running sneaks and iPod. 

Have a fabulous day and I hope you find time to create!
