The start of NSD!

Good Morning!!  I am so glad I finished a bunch of errands yesterday and did my chores last night.  Now I can spend the whole day scrapping!  HAPPY NSD!!!

Here is the start of my day:

I chose this sketch from Lasting Memories and this challenge was a "treasure hunt".  We were challenged to scrap something or about something we treasure.

I chose to scrap this picture of my and my little brother.  My time with him is so limited, that I treasure every minute we have together.  He is going through a rough time in his life, so spending any time with him is so short.  Geez, this made me cry!!  It's hard to believe this is my "baby"

I've been really getting into fussy cutting to make the most of my patterned papers.  I love these butterflies!

I also used this color palette from Color Me Scrappy:

I used up lots of fun goodies from My Mind's Eye for sketch #318 from Sketch Inspiration:

And I used lots of circles and bling for the Boys Rule sketch:

This was inspired by Nikki Sivil's "It's Raining, It's Pouring" collection.  I only had a few bits and pieces leftover, and I managed to use them all.  The clouds are felt stickers from Pebbles Inc.  And all the bling was from the stash.  Oh, and I did lots of doodling.   :)

Off to knock out a few more pages!   Have a great NSD!!
