The blogosphere has been a little quiet this week. I think everyone is gearing up for National Scrapbook Day. I did!

I am celebrating NSD with my scrapbooking divas at a class with Cari Fennell at Auntie Em's Scrapbooking. We're making this beautiful canvas album.

I can't wait to tell you all about!! In the meantime, I hope you enjoy what I found online this week.

5. Irene Tan created a beautiful mini-album using Bo Bunny's Et Cetera collection. I love how she's used this vintage collection and made it girlie and soft for her daughter.

7. Echo Park announced the launch of its sister company, Carta Bella Paper Company. The new company's first collection, Beautiful Moments, is very different from EP's  Park’s bright and graphic lines.

8. Finally, on this National Scrapbook Day, I wanted to share with you the top reasons why I scrapbook.

To tell my family's story.

To express myself creatively through photography, paper crafting and storytelling.

To relax, have fun and play.

To be part of a great community of women.

Have a wonderful week!
