The first Saturday in May is notorious around Kentucky for being DERBY DAY. If you don't live in the state, you may not know it was such a big deal.Most years I hang out with friends and watch the race, but this year I had a nasty allergy attack and it was rainy cold, so I stayed home.
Why am I telling you this? Ha! Well I spent the day updating my personal scrapbook. Used to be, I filled my scrapbook with pages and pages of paper and pictures. These days I am so busy, well I haven't had to the chance to do this in AGES. It was so much fun! As a happy coincidence the first Satuday in May is ALSO National Scrapbooking Day - so there was lots of memory keeping talk online and folks on Instagram to share with. Have a peek at what I made (and if you want to make something similar, I linked most of the products up to an online store!):

Graduation Day. My oldest nephew graduated last summer! It was such a fun weekend. I had this design in my head for a while (I think I saw something similar in a magazine?) and it turned out to be a great way to add a lot of pictures in a layout that is not too 'cluttered'

I never have pictures from Thanksgiving, so I was so happy to get these from my cousins' FB page! About half my extended family gets together and it is a perfect day. I found a craft kit from A Beautiful Mess that I had for maybe a year (I actually had forgotten I had it!) and it was perfect for this occasion.

It may have been a bummer of a Derby Day, but it was a pretty good day pulling out my paper and glue! SO, are you a scrapbooker? Did you make anything this weekend? Do tell!
