Hi Quay!

Do you remember me? I haven't been around for at least 2 years, probably closer to 3. I think I would like to join in here, but for now just to get myself more motivated.

Since I'm not a scrapper, all my "layouts" are cards. How does that work???

**If all you do is Cards you can count them as your layout goal, you can also count points for them.** THIS RULE only counts if you do just cards for the month...and no LO's** Other wise, if you do both (LO's & Cards) you can only take points for your cards!**

Does that make sense? If not just let me know k?

Hi Quay!

Do you remember me? I haven't been around for at least 2 years, probably closer to 3. I think I would like to join in here, but for now just to get myself more motivated.





Hi Kim! do you remember me? It has been a while. How have you been?
