NSD Weekend (in other words this post is 100% scrapbooking related)

This weekend is NSD weekend. Of course you all already know that, right? I am so used to the digital world of scrapbooking that I've never even ventured into paper scrapbooking sites on one of these weekends. Do the traditional scrapbooking sites have NSD events as well? I guess I'll have to drop in and see what's up. I suppose it would be really great if I just lived in the states and could drop into a real life scrapbooking mega-store. There are probably midnight crops and all-night chats. That might sound tempting if I were a night owl, but I'm not. Usually in bed by 10:30 - that's me.

The Digichick will certainly be participating in NSD weekend. For this event, the TDC designers have taken the reins and will be hosting a Facebook hop. Check out this beautiful kit you can get all for just liking our designer's FB pages.

TDC's May boutique collab, called Roots and Wings, is in the shop. Stunning again. As usual. Absolutely love the color combination. As usual. This is a page I made using the collab as well as a few other goodies from the shop. My beloved niece's babes are so photogenic. Just to keep it all honest, this page is a complete and total scraplift of a page I saw made by Van Nguyen.

Studio ViVa Artistry has teamed up with another one of my fave designers, Etc. by Danyale to make the cuuuutest collab called Brain Freeze. Its available at both Scrapbook Graphics and The Digichick. This page uses a picture (I know its blurry) of my niece's oldest daughter, oh so many years ago.

For this last new page, I used Renewal by Alamama's Pressed Petals. She's decided to make The Digichick her permanent new digi home. Yay!

And.... I think that's it for now. I've still got to at least *try* to get a few more things made before the weekend events. Too bad its fallen right in the middle of Golden Week here in Japan. I only had to work one day this whole week and the rest of the days are holidays (business and school). You know how you lose track of even what day it is when you're on vacation? Well, that's how I'm feeling now. Its Thursday, I think...

As always, thank you so much for stopping by my corner of the web. Please come again soon.

I think NSD is definitely celebrated in paper scrapping as well, unlike DSD.

I absolutely love your LOs and I too can't wait for all the fun stuff going on this weekend!!

Enjoy your holiday!

Beautiful layouts, as always, Holly! May I say your blog is looking gorgeous as well? Sometime I would like to hear more about the Japanese holidays. They sound really interesting. :)
