Jillibean NSD Celebrations + Givaway!!!

Happy National Scrapbooking Day 2014
and welcome to my blog

for the Jillibean Soup NSD Celebrations and
Mega Giveaway!!!



Today I'm sharing my all-time favourite layout created for Jillibean Soup. I chose this layout because it was a laborious work of love with each little square being hand cut (I have since bought a square punch) and every little heart hand punched to create the background. It's a fairly simple layout in design but it draws all the focus onto the photo of my little man who was on a beach holiday and was having the absolute time of his life. Wonderful memories!

GIVEAWAY!!!
Now as part of today's National Scrapbooking Celebrations, the Jillibean Soup Big Bean has dug deep into the treasure trove of prizes and pulled out the most incredible stash of Giveaways to be won. Every participating designer in today's hop has a different prize to be won so the more blogs you visit the more chances you give yourself of taking home a wonderful Jillibean Soup bundle.
