Happy National Scrapbooking Day!

I've been posting a lot of cards lately.  But I have a layout to share today, in celebration of National Scrapbook Day.

Supplies: patterned paper, large alphabet stickers, arrow sticker, and border sticker (all from Bo Bunny); blue mini alphabet stickers, rubber sticker, and faux badges (all from October Afternoon); white mini alphabet stickers (Echo Park); cardstock (American Crafts); pen (Zig).

I decided to post this layout today because I really like the photos.  And I really like the subject matter.  And I really like the supplies I used.  In short, I just really like this page!  It's an older page, which I completed last summer.  Since it gives me so much happiness, I decided it was high time I shared it on my blog.

The journaling on the layout reads: "2001, Sioux Falls: My fave at the science museum?  The space stuff!"  I've always been fascinated with outer space, ever since I was a little girl.  For awhile, before I decided to become a teacher, I dreamed about being the next Sally Ride or Valentina Tereshkova.  When my husband and I visited the science museum in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, I was in heaven when I got to pose for photos with a mock up of a space suit and the space shuttle.

I know that when most people think about nature, they think about flowers and trees.  But really, stars and planets and other cosmic phenomena are part of nature, too.  They're a part of nature that we humans still know very little about, and that makes them fascinating to me.  So, from time to time, I'm going to share some more outer-space themed projects on my blog.


Before I sign out for today, I have a little treat to share with you.  The above blog badge was awarded to me by Aleftinushka.  The Russian words on it simply say "for a craft blog."  I'm supposed to choose ten people to pass it on to, but I always have a hard time choosing just a few people.  I'd rather just share it with everyone.  So, if you want a copy of this beautiful Russian blog badge, go ahead and grab one.

Happy Scrapbooking Day!
