Choose a layout you did for a Challenge (either on here or for another scrap site)... and use it as your Inspiration. Twist: use a piece of black ribbon on layout.

FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT:

This group is now a collaborative effort. I will be the "running" the thread. I use this term loosely because it will be a "majority rules" thread. If things come up, we will discuss it and majority will decide NOT just me. TISH will provide us with weekly challenges which I will post to the front page and will put the layouts on there as they are completed. DI has agreed to take care of our secret sister mailings.

The thread will remain a grans only thread because that is the way everyone wanted it. The name remains the same. I see no reason to reintroduce ourselves unless we have new members join at some point. I will like to encourage EVERYONE to try and scrap and/or craft something at least one every couple of months after all this is a scrapping thread. PLEASE do continue to have other conversations as we all are FRIENDS and want to know what is going on in our lives.

I hope you enjoy the "new" thread and welcome any suggestions or comments at any time. Just remember, it will be up for a "majority decision" before we would make any major changes.

Betsey - I am going to keep checking on the old thread and making sure that everyone is moving to the new thread. I don't know why the link in the p.m. does not seem to work. I will see if I can figure that out. Glad to see you here!!

What no new wall paper or curtains???

Morning ladies... Today I take dgd to the dentist. This should be interesting since she screamed and clawed her mother last time. They said they will have to put her in a pappose (not sure if I spelled that right) to restrain her this time as she has two teeth that need to be sealed.

At 1pm I have to take the two little ones to parent classes with daughter. I get 3 hours of quiet time. I will have to take a taxi since dh truck is out of commission and he needs my car to get to work. Thank goodness for taxi's.

Teia - They had to put Maddie in one of those things to pull 2 teeth. She didn't like it but it kept her from slapping at everyone. Sorry about having to take the taxi. Hope your husband's truck is not out of commission for too long. I will say a prayer for her to be calm and peaceful at the dentist.

Ryan is coming to spend the day while his dad is at school. I will be checking in and out to see if everyone finds there way here.

Tish - I will check back later to see if you have posted a challenge yet for the front page.

I am still worried about Lori. I have friends that had power go out the same time as her but they were in eastern Kentucky and their power was restored yesterday.

My dd in Maryland got power yesterday.....but the other one also in Maryland is still without power....so its hard to say how that is working. It depends on what grid they are attached to....according to my dd Lisa....they basically live in the country, even though it is suburban Wash. D.C. it is really far out and quite the commute if you actually work in D.C. Scott and Ellen also live in the country, in a different county that Lisa, so its hard to say when theirs might be on......considered a suburb of Wash/Baltimore....both! LOL A long commute to both places in my opinion....but again, its a different world....many people are now traveling an hour and a half to work everyday in both of those cities.......who'd a thought??????? LOL

The weather channel did say that there are still millions without power, and that it could be a week or more.......can you imagine????? Whew!! I don't know what city Lori is close to, but I know it is a small town, so maybe not high on the priority list. LOL

Betsy to answer your question from the other thread.. The doc said she can not work if she wants a normal life without lots of pain. He called it severe RA which is to mean that it has advanced to a point that she will have pain even on meds so she has to limit her arm movements. She will be moving back to the USA when her hubby gets his visa (which should be some time this fall or early next year) not sure where they are going to move to yet, but not Oregon. She needs to be in a warm state.

Here is the challenge for the week...(thank you Betsey for the idea!)
Allowing a bit more time on this one due to the fact we have started a new thread, and some are not back from vacation yet.


Start date: Tuesday, July 3 and end date, Saturday, July 14th.

Here is one that I think would be really fun and different style for most of us in here.

Scraplift (Theme)

Just say it is a scraplift from...(the name of the artist) !!!!

I'm confused..... are we to scraplift the layout that the link took us to? The one with all the strips of sayings/papers?

OR can we scraplift anything we want??

thanks.

Di - I think she wants us to use the layout the link sends us to for scraplifting.

Tish - Challenge is on the first page and looks like fun!!
