National Scrapbook Day is observed on the first weekend in May every year. This holiday gives us all a great excuse to just sit back and scrapbook the weekend away! Don't feel guilty taking the weekend off to celebrate your favorite hobby!
There are lots of National Scrapbook Day celebrations going on all over the world. I never miss a chance to celebrate National Scrapbook Day! I am excited about the online crop at Faith Sisters! All BellaOnline readers are invited! I hope to see you there!

∑ What is a Cyber Crop?
A Cyber Crop is just like an in person Crop event but it's based online, here on the Faith Sisters forums. On Friday there will be a list of challenges posted. There will also be lots of chat to keep everyone in contact while we're all cropping and having a great time!
The challenges are key to the weekend, you can print out a copy for yourself on Friday.
Just have you and your cropping supplies ready to start, be near your computer if you can (though some members will run back and forth if theirs is in another room).
∑ How do you sign up for the crop?
The Faith Sisters National Scrapbook Day Crop is open to all scrapbookers! Make sure that you are signed up as a Faith Sisters member by joining the forums and inspiration gallery. (Each has itís own registration.) Once you have established a Faith Sisters membership just jump in the forum that will open up on Friday and join in the fun! Start your point tracker thread in the point tracker forum.
∑ Do I have to be around all weekend?
No, not at all. Just join in when you can. You can join in as little or as much as you wish.
∑ What if I don't have a scanner?
Some members use a digital camera to photograph their work close up, then upload the photo to the Gallery.
Items MUST be uploaded to the correct Gallery in order to claim your points.
∑ Does it cost anything to join in?
No, the Cyber Crop is totally free!
∑ How do the POINTS work?
Various challenges will be posted throughout the weekend. For each challenge you complete & post in the gallery by Sunday at midnight CST you will receive one ticket for the draw (excluding the speed scrap, you must complete that in the given time frame) For each challenge you finish, you get one ticket to go toward the drawing of a GC.
Plus a live chat (there may just be a coupon or two given away!!)
