This thread is for sharing love on new layouts. Thanks to Cheryl for hosting March!

If you don't do a lot of challenges, this is a great thread for getting your wonderful work seen and even if you do a lot of challenges...well one can never have too much love!!

It's a challenge of sorts though.... keeping up on giving love can be a real challenge!! We all JCI (Just Check(ing) In) often and try so hard to be ACU (All Caught Up) and MMS (Mark My Spot)... but let a day go by and you'll be VFB (Very Far Behind). We've also been known to toss about and create some new acronyms!!

The rules for this thread are simple: Post a newly uploaded layout, card or project, get comments and give comments on everyone's pages. No "drop and runs" please. If you get love be kind enough to give love back. There are NO CHALLENGES and NO Requirements on the TYPE of comments you leave, just be sincere but if you can't say something nice then don't say anything at all. But I'm sure you can think of something nice to say =)

Please also remember several people post here; try not to flood the post with too many layouts at once. Please be considerate and do not post more than 5-7 in any post. No limit per day.
So, think you can do it??? Then come on by and join the fun! This thread has gained a fairly regular following. We enjoy seeing new people come by to share their work and join in the fun! You can join in at any time. Just remember that it is more fun if you give love and get love too!

Here is how to put your layout photo on a thread: 1. Go to layout/picture you want to post on the thread. 2. Scroll down to where it says "Share everywhere" 3. Click the Link/Embed Tab 4. Click on the "IMG CODE (for forums and bulletin boards)" Make sure the little green dot is in front of that phrase now. 5. Select what size you want the picture to be on the thread, most of us select "large". 6. Copy and Paste the Embed Code Below: 7. Paste the code to the thread as a new post. When you paste it you will only see the code. The picture will not appear until you post or preview your reply.

While this is a laid back community of artists and crafts people sharing their work and support, it's not a place to just drop off work and not visit the galleries of others in the thread. We encourage you to enjoy all the marvelous talent and leave comments! Should you encounter a problem with another poster in this thread, please PM them directly to ask your question or resolve your issue. The hostesses are not referees and can't step in the middle for you.

Speaking of hostesses..... this is a collaborative effort. We are rotating the job of hosting the thread. Included in the opening post is the schedule of hostesses over the next couple months. If you are interested in hosting.... please PM the current month's hostess to let her know. (BTW - the current month's hostess would be the one who started the thread) Hope everyone has a wonderfully creative month and gains inspiration and encouragement from each other!

Thanks Cheryl for hosting april and to Donna for May. I'll do August--since it's my month!
Love the sketch and will start it right away...!

Gotta say that grocery shopping is my least fav chore. Thought it would easier with the boys gone but it's still the same. And to eat healthier evidently means to eat more expensively.
Arrrgggghhhh! I could rant for days on this!

Jeanie--what do you think of the Kindle Fire? Got good games? I broke the news that I wanted one for Mom's day and hubby looked very confused! Even tho he has the Ipad all day long he still thinks of it as mine.

So sorry to hear how sick every is especially the little ones.

Denise--speaking of little ones, your granddaughters are too precious!

And I do not want to talk about pregnancies...mine were awful! With my first I became allergic to my own body and with a month to go I broke out in huge hives from my neck to the toes. Horrid & hurt. Those went away within 3 hrs after his birth. Then #2 would not let me sleep--he slept in the day & was awake kicking and moving all night. I worked and couldn't sleep at day. I swore he did push ups inside me using my bladder as the kick off pt.

Cheryl--I'd love to see the directions for the mum too! Only when you get a free moment! lol...

It's lasagna tonight so I best go get it done!

I had a love/hate relationship with being pregnant. I hated everything that changed after I got pregnant, but I loved what was coming at the end of the road (though I was terrified at the same time!) So terrified, in fact, that when the dr. told me my labor was going to be induced, I begged for a c-section. I didn't get it, but I was sure drugged up! I think my labor and delivery were a dream come true for every woman out there- I was unconscious for all of it, and didn't feel a thing until my episiotomy-OUCH!- and nothing else again until the drugs wore off. lucky, right?

The only thing I regret is being unconscious through everything. I wish I had some recollection of all that- not just what dh and my sister told me...and, not the bits and pieces I do dimly remember...but, lucky nonetheless!

And, if it meant not feeling a thing again if there were to be a 3rd child, I'd be all over it like butter on bread! LOL

Morning. So excited. Baby's careseat will be here on Wednesday. I had gone "shopping" for one a few weeks ago, placed it in in a registry and for some reason waited to order it. Lastnight mom went ahead an ordered it.. she got it 12.00 cheaper plus two day FREE shipping. Hubby going tonight to pick up a few things that we absolutely need (diapers, bottles etc)

Gonna get some coffee and start my morning. I will be back in a little bit bit once my laptop is booted up and ready to go!
