Sorry I didn't see this post earlier. I spent the entire day yesterday in my scrap room. Would have been great to do a progressive! Oh well, maybe I can make the monthly one!

Bummer! I will be scrapping away today anyway! I hope I get to make the monthly one, but with working nights on the weekends (5:30pm-2:00am, Fri, Sat, & Sun) it is hard to make it for me I will figure something out so I can play though! Have a nice day ladies!

With all the recent changes to my life, I won't be able to host the weekend after Thanksgiving. If someone else would like to that would be awesome. I plan to have the front page templates reduced by then so it'd be easier. I can and will host Dec 1st however.

And Megan what time of day are you awake with the strange weekend schedule?

Hi! Sounds like everyone has a hectic life.

I won't be around next weekend at all...headed to KS to try to cram a lot of family events into a few days. I might not be online much the following week until Friday, either...classes/test/homework, dr appt in STL, kids appt, etc., etc., etc. BUT, if I can remember....I should be on Friday! I got a Kindle Fire for my bday this week, so I may be able to sneak in some random online times between now and then.

1st weekend of December sounds great! I could go for a 12pm EST/11am CST round! I have to leave for work at 3:30 pm CST on Saturdays, so I think that would be perfect and I will get home around 3 am on Saturday morning, so if it is at 11 am, then I can get 6-7 hours of sleep between work and scrapping
