Did you know that today is National Honesty Day? It is! Who knew???
We thought it would be interesting to scrapbook this holiday and Tina and Tamara are here to share their thoughts with you. I think you will find this post interesting. Tina chose to take a more serious route while Tamara interpreted this day in a silly way.
What does National Honesty Day mean to you? If you make a project celebrating today, please make sure to share it. We'd love to see!

Hi! Tina here today with some thoughts about honesty.
What is honesty? Webster's defines honesty as being upright and fair. Of being sincere and frank. Being free from deceit or fraud. But what does it really mean to be honest?
The word honesty is often overused. We often talk about being honest with each other. With our families and friends. With our co-workers and employers. But what about being honest with ourselves? Being honest with you. This is really tough. It is hard to be honest with yourself about your own faults and weaknesses. I want to share my faults and weaknesses with y'all today.
I am impatient.
I am happy being alone.
I daydream of faraway places.
I am a control freak.
I am a creature of habit.
I am quiet when I shouldn’t be.
I debate, just to argue the other side.
I would rather ‘blend into the background’ than stand in the foreground.
I want things to go ‘my way’, always.
I prefer my dogs over most humans.
I am impulsive.
I do not believe in forever.
I am restless.
I am unemotional and detached.
This seems like a short list, but literally took me an hour to actual put into words. I would type the words, then hit the delete button. That isn't me, or is it? As hard as these thoughts and feelings were to put into words, this may be one of my favorite layout EVER. This is a layout I hope is kept through the years. A layout I hope is read and understood. A layout that reflects the REAL me.

Hello everyone. Tamara here! Today, I am being HONEST about how much I LOVE CUPCAKES! A few years ago, I tasted my first gourmet cupcake at the Sweet Tooth Fairy, a local gourmet cupcake bakery (winner of Cupcake Wars). I never knew such happiness could come from biting into a delectable little bit of baked goodness. The frosting was heavenly, I could have just eaten it on its own. I dreamt of someday creating my own little bit of heaven.
After some research and experimentation, I learned how to create these culinary delights for my daughters' birthdays and family parties.
I had fun creating a layout with some photos of the cupcakes we've made: Key Lime Pie, German Chocolate Cake, Blackberry White Chocolate, Red Velvet, Cookies and Cream, Strawberry Shortcake, and Almond Joy.
I created the title with the Collectable Memorable tiny word stickers, a layered "Happiness" banner sticker, glittered letters, and the new letter stickers from the "Find Your Wings" line (I am lovin' these!). I used the striped paper from the 6x6 pad because it had a smaller pattern that fit well with the title. I rounded the corners to match the journal card.
I trimmed the journal card to fit with the 3" photos and added word stickers. I inserted 3 epoxy brads along the right edge, echoing the row of 3 cupcakes on the photo. I created a border of colorful enamel dots along the left of the page.
