Guidelines

To keep the group running smoothly and everyone is on the same page we ask that the following guidelines are followed.

Disagreements happen, sometimes it’s hard to judge someone’s tone via text on a screen and things can be taken the wrong way. If you feel hurt by another members comment or are made to feel unwelcome at any time, please don’t sit and feel bad over it. You’re welcome to PM me, or you can talk to the other member in PM. We just ask it does not become a public argument on the thread.

We ask you check in at least once a week. This is to keep the group active. If you feel at any time that life is getting to busy and you can’t keep up, please let us know. We’d rather that than worry that something has happened to you. There will be no hard feelings; we understand that life gets busy!

Everyone enjoys getting love on their projects. Please be fair in receiving/giving love/critique to other group members.

There are no specific amount of layouts required to be a part of this group. Just post them as you do them. Please make sure you link a thumb nail in the thread so its easier for members to find and leave you love/critique!

Challenges/Swaps

There will be challenges and swaps. You do not have to take part to be part of the group. They will be hosted to help you practice your different techniques. They will be posted in the blog on ScraptasticCOFs sb.com blog so we can keep track. Anyone is free to host a challenge/swap, so if you have an idea let us know!

If you want to take part in a challenge please make sure you have the time to commit and see it through, no one enjoys being flaked on.
Saying that we understand that real life happens and if you change your mind on participating please let us know asap. When you take part in a challenge, please make sure you have public embedding enabled on your work.

Most of all, enjoy!!!!

Wow, 7am is FAR too early for a Saturday *Yawn*

First off and foremost





I'm gonna relax on the sofa for a bit then get on with some housework and making this cake for the BBQ tonight.

I had some odd odd pregnancy dreams last night. Really vivid! It involved sprinklers, snakes and crisps. *blink*

OK here are a few layouts to start your Saturday.

Hi all!

I'm excited to be here. I've been around the boards for the past few months, playing in the monthly challenges and swaps.

I'm in Manassas, Virginia, a bit outside of Washington DC.

The kids and I just got back from a 5 day road trip through PA, OH, WV, and KY.

DD leaves for camp tomorrow, so it's a day of laundry and packing her up for her first trip to overnight camp. She is really excited.

Welcome ladies!

So regarding our challenges, I figured I'd leave it for a couple of weeks before putting one together, just so we can get to know each other etc first, I don't want to over whelm everyone lol.

I've just finished making Autumn a butterfly mobile for her nursery. Its only taken me 3 weeks haha. I've taken it apart and put it back together 3 times because I wasn't happy with it. I'm just going to upload pictures.

She must like it because she's been kicking me HARD for the last hour! I think I have a 10lb kangaroo in there, not a 2lb little girl
