This is a multi-purpose group. It’s a swap, it’s a challenge, it’s a support group, it’s a critique group, it’s a garage sale, pretty much it’s a whatever group! Come here to post new projects, or to just chat!

Rules/regulations….
1. This is a complex (but fun!!) group. I will post optional swaps/trades and (mostly) optional challenges. If you would like to suggest a swap/trade/challenge, just let me know!
2. This is an exclusive group. (don’t you feel special!! Hehe) I want to keep it this way for trust (swaps, personal topics etc). If you would like someone in particular to join this group, just PM me and I will send them an invitation.
3. Venting/lots of chatter is required.
4. I will send out occasional RAKs. You can be chosen for a RAK in a couple of different ways. Such as random drawings, polls, most LO’s completed ect. (These will not be sent out every month, just when I feel like being nice hehe!) I like being random.
5. It is required that you leave a constructive criticism comments on at least 5 LO’s from each persons gallery. I have always been told to do “sandwhich criticism” Tell them something you like, then the things you don’t like/could change, then something you do like. For example “I really like the chipboard! Instead of using purple paper, I think you should of used yellow, because I think it would of popped more. I really think the flowers pulled it all together!” Be nice!! Don’t be mean!!
6. This group is meant to be a fun place, so have fun!
7. Since this is a continued group, you will be automatically signed up every month. Please let me know if you want out of the group, or just want to be inactive.
8. Any sizes/items count. I don’t care if you scrap on napkins!!!

First (mandatory) challenge. Due date: As soon as you can!!
Do a LO about yourself. It must show your “style” of scrapbooking. Also, include a few paragraphs about yourself either in journaling on the LO, or in a post on this thread. Include things like: your family, your hobbies, favorite food, etc… just an icebreaker for the ladies who have not met yet! Example below!!!

Well, Hello Beautiful! By -Jenn-

Jenn is 20 years old and lives in Wichita, KS. Her obsessions are anything pink, chocolate, her cat, and her dbf Matt. In her spare time, she is either on sb.com, facebook, or scrapping. She loves basic grey, prima, and we r memory keepers. Matt is a Senior airman in the USAF, and will be leaving for a deployment in Kuwait December 22. She would describe her scrapping style as simple scraplifting contemporary. She uses clean lines, and loves bright colors (even though she is scared of using them), scraplifts alot and loves the effects of negative space.

Optional challenges

10/20- One of my favorite movies is Finding Nemo. Do a LO that is connected in some way to the movie. For example... do a LO about bath time, the beach, or swimming. You can also do a LO that is orange and white, (nemo is orange and white), or maybe monochromatic blue!!!

10/26- Here is another challenge... PM the screen name of someone who you get along with really well on sb.com and I will send them an invitation to this group. Just so we can get some new faces in here!!

I'm here!

So excited about this group! I've been working on my scrappy room for the last 2 days and I'm hoping things start to slow down some where I can take advantage of the clean space and scrap!

yay! you got it to work, I wonder why you couldn't post on this thread... that is sooo weird!

Don't you love it when the hubby goes to sleep?!? hehe. My dbf wanted me to spend time with him tonight, but I was in a major scrappy mood, so I pinned him down and licked his face. (lol!) he practically made me go away! wow, it's 11 and i've only done 1 page... eek!! I gotta get going!

wow, it's like 2:30, and I am still up... Poor Matt passed out on the couch a few hours ago (he's been working 12 hour shifts every day for a week) and will be working thru the weekend. I just started playing Sorority life on facebook, and i'm addicted! no bed for me tonight! that is for sure! hehe!!

I can't wait for you guys to do the challenge, i'm really excited about it!!!

I think Margy is either a waitress or she works at a casino (I always get her and another lady mixed up as far as there jobs go!) Or maybe she is both! haha! Yep, i'm goofy!

good morning girls!

sabrina, margy works in the casino.

elly, I have a homemade clip it up but am saving to buy the real deal. My homemade version is not sturdy enough and it totally leans. It also doesn't spin well.

well, I'm coloring my hair as we type. I'm trying a new color by herbal essence. It is a bodacious brown with a touch of burgandy. I'm a little worried. It is going to be a much darker color than I've ever done but I love the touch of burgandy. so can't wait to see how it turns out! I'm off to a photography exhibit today. I entered a photo again this year but I plan on spending at least a couple of hours scrapping today! Hope you all have a fun saturday! OH and the SuN is finally out here! We haven't seen it in over a week! Yeah!

I am waaaay addicted to sorority life... I have not gotten off the computer pretty much all day... lol! I wanted to scrap, but i'm too addicted! I looove it! hehe

I saw that one on line somewhere too... One I thought was pretty cool, was a paper towel holder and ring clips (like the rings that hold together acrylic albums) and page protectors. Another one was the closet organizers that have grate like wires, they hung up stuff on there too. I saw a lot of them.
