National Scrapbook day came and went last weekend. In years past, it was a flurry of one day events with layout challenges and short deadlines for a chance at a prize. That's not true anymore. As memory keeping has grown, so has the event. The little i in front of NSD reminds everyone that it's an international activity and we now see challenges which last throughout the week after.
Speaking of challenges, iNSD might be over, but there is still one more day to submit your layouts to Shimelle.com. You will need to scroll through to see all of the challenges options. Shimelle really pulled out the stops when it came to providing ideas to inspire you.
the Power of Three Challenge.

It's a perfect submission for Shimelle's challenge to scrapbook about yourself.
Shimelle challenged me to scraplift one of my own layouts. I decided to use a design that is a little unusual for me. Using clusters in scrapbook design was an assignment for Get It Scrapped. I loved the layout I created but until now, I had never revisited the design.
