I wasn't sure who 'declared' it and why it is so, but apparently May is National Scrapbook Month! In fact, May 1 is National Scrapbook Day. In reading up on the event, I read this blogpost from Scrapin Kats in Alabama and learned that National Scrapbook Month was started in 1994 by Creative Memories. Wow, I should have guessed that!
Here in our official coverage area (The South), you'll see that you have lots of National Scrapbook Month events to choose from! Here are just a few that we know of, which can also be found on your state's events page. I'm SURE that we haven't covered them all, so feel free to comment below to let us and your fellow readers know of other special events happening through The South.
