August 2008 Your favorites;
September 2008 - Scrap a Family Member
October 2008 - A Childhood Photo or Memory

The Fine Print

New Rule!! You canNOT combine the BOM monthly challenge with our normal monthly challenges. Sorry girls. All this point counting and tallying is just too much. So, two separate challenges here. The BOM challenge runs year long and independently of the other round challenges.

Deadlines will be the end of the month of the given challenge - example June 2009 challenge is due by the last day of June to qualify for points.

Please take note of the deadlines. Your challenges must be uploaded in your galleries during the times posted on each challenge.

Everyone remember that there is now a Participation drawing so even if you don't get all the points for all the challenges there's still a chance to win a little something anyway so get those projects done!!

************************* **********************

January Challenges!

January Technique Challenge - Due Jan 31, 09 - 25 pts

We all have it. We all love it. Yes I do mean patterned paper ! For this challenge, let your PP take center stage. Use it to cut out your own amazing embellies and flowers. Use as much as you like, as many patterns as you like, just have FUN!! All coloring agents and any metal embellies are allowed. Also you can use anything you like for the title.

January BOM Challenge - Due Jan 31, 09 - 25 pts.

Simple. Create a layout about TIME. Please use the word TIME in your title and consider your use of time in your life or your feelings about it at this time.

Bonus Challenge!! Bonus Challenge!! Due Feb 15, 09 - 50 points

Create a Holiday Mini-Album detailing your holiday experiences in 2008. Let's get those holiday photos done early this year!! This will be great for those of us who are behind and will prolly never get caught up. Like me! Album can be made of anything and be any size. Please at least 4 pages (8 sides).

Good luck everyone.


************************* ************************

OTHER ACTIVITIES

Spring ATC Swap 2008 - Completed
WOW Groups Anniversary Card Dedication Challenge - Completed
STAMPED IMAGE SWAP - Completed

Envelope "Mail Art" Swap !
Sign Up Deadline: October 27, 2008
Mail - Out Deadline: December 1, 2008

This will be an open swap. Everyone mail to everyone else. Be sure you have the updated address list.

Decorate an envelope with a Christmas theme. This is the 'Mail Art' portion of the swap. It's supposed to be ART. Please use a minimum of 3 embellishments. Remember that mail art should be carefully done so that there are no loose items on the envelopes that can fall off or get caught in post office equipment. Think stamps, inks, paint, stickers.. paper layers, etc.

The envelope will have a small gift inside--handmade, storebought, or a combination of the two--this is at the sender's discretion. The envelope should be Christmas themed but the gift does not necessarily have to be.

The dollar amount set for the gift is a maximum of $5. You do not have to spend this much--but this is the max that should be spent.

Participants are:

Ami
Laura
Hannah
Steph
Mindy
Jordan
Nina
Lynn

Hi everyone!!

Mindy - What can I do to help? I posted you someo information in the old thread... Will get it and paste it here..

Laura, I've been thinking of joining the multiple pictures challenge. How do I go about joining a challenge? Is there a place here in the forums I can go to see what other challenges are going on?
That is one sweet LO your daughter did about Sophia. It must be hard being so far from your faimily.


Mindy



Hi Mindy!! I just thought I'd add a couple things to what Deb said about challenges.

After you find the challenge of your choice, be sure and read the rules posted in the first post of the thread. Then usually all that is required is to post in the thread and state something like 'I'm in and here's my submission.. etc', and then just link your LO there! The hostess will do the rest.

The only other thing to do is leave lotsa lovin' on all the other submissions!

At the end of the month, you will be asked to PM the hostess your faves and usually you can vote for yourself as well. The number of faves vary from challenge to challenge - read the rules. Then a poll will be posted where everyone on sb.com can vote for their faves.

Hope this is the info you were looking for?

I have submissions in both sections of the Multiple Pic challenge - 2-5 photos and 6 +. (Now when will I ever get time to get around to all these challenges and leave comments????? That's tough to do if you enter a lot!

Thanks for your comments about Holly's LO on Sofia. I really miss that girl.... It IS tough sometimes although we keep pretty close with the computer.

Good luck with the challenges!!



Hope this helps!

Everyone:Please go back and read any posts in the old thread you might have missed. Just be sure to post here!

So sorry to hear about your loss Sue... hope things get back to a norm soon... will keep you in thought and prayer...


OK.. found the new thread... and I think I am caught up on the old one...LOL.. dang if you miss a couple of days.. you have lots to catch up on!!

we had eric's dad and step mom arrive from CA last week and everyone came over to our house on sat. for a cook out... and it rained all day soo we were all inside.. so I had lots of pre-arrival cleaning to do and then post clean-up... so hopefully back to norm now. I doo soo love my house when it is company clean!! wish I could only maintain it... lol... it's hard with 4 kids ranging from almost 4 to 16!! but I am soo enjoying the clean today while it is here!!

loving everyone's layouts!!! man you guys are scrappin quick!!! had to clean the kitchen table off with all my stuff over it... can you believe it!!! but hoping to drag it all out again today at some point!!! LOL.. really want to do the challenge and hopefully a few more for the lucky 7 contest... we'll see...

Mindy.. glad to hear you ds is feeling better!!

Nic.. welcome... and I soo am printing those instructions off.. although I do not have photoshop, I have photo explosion and am hoping I can do something like that... I really do not know the program very well because it is fairly new.. I just got a new computer and it has vista which has been a nightmare for me... so with that I got some new programs and was at a lost at what to get for a photo plus just a graphic type program.. I used to have printship de Lux which I loved but it was not compatiable with vista... nothing but a nightmare over here with this puter... so I am going to go take a look at some point to see if I can do something like that... we will see... I soo love that look of the pic being b&w with a touch of color!!! who knows, maybe I will get a whole new program!! I might be asking you lots of questions... hope you won't mind.

Laura... I can't believe it takes soo much to get a Wishblade or other things over there... it is funny the simple things we take for granted... but I would love to have one!!!

Lynn.. you have been scrappin lots... and man you have more done in your waking hours then I tend to get done all day!!! LOL....

ok.. jumping in the shower now... I mean after all it is 10:30!!

oh...Deb... yep I did know they were rats!! LOL.. that's why we bought them!! wink wink...


Steph... I use those cats eye's all the time... they are used throughout a lot of my lo's and altered items... I was trying to look and I am not sure I have them on letters.. which totatlly surprised me when I went to look.. but the "st" on avery's 1st' birthday has an orange on it, it is kind of hard to see in the photo, but is shows up really well in real life.. but you should get a few and mess witht them.. I really do use mine alot.. on tags, edges of things, paper... I have a small can of them.. and I think you would like them too.. buy a few and mess around with them... I think you can buy a package of 3 at hobby lobby for around 6.00 or in a srape store individually for a couple bucks...

ok.. now jumping in the shower!

inked edges... with color box cats eye inks

steph.. this is a title with with the inking around the edges... the deco squares at the top on it too.. but really harder to see in the pic.. but the white title has a brown around it.. it would look great on your new letters!!

if you look under the layout in the product used category you can click on that link and it will take you to the product if you want to see what they look like, if you are not familar with them... ok.. hope that helps...

Steph! I have to chime in with my .02 on Cat's Eyes. I use the fluid chalk andI LOVE THEM! I could not live without them! I only have two, but I have more on the way. Can't wait!

Here are two of my pages as examples:

The Wonder of You Every edge on this LO has been chalked with Creamy Brown and Rose Coral. The flowers, the journalling strps, the paper.. everything.

Learning to Slide All the stars on this one have been chalked with Creamy Brown

As Nina said, just get one or two and tinker with them.. you'll them!!

Sue, I am so sorry to hear about your SIL. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Steph, I only have 2 cat's eye inks. But I love them. They are great for edging. I'd recommend black or brown as one of your first.

Here is the link to my new LO that I entered in the June Multiple pics Challenge. Although Laura's Kiruna LO is in it too and it's a much better use of multiple pics than mine. And so are Nic and Deb's. But at least I tried.

Thanks everyone for the kind words on my new trampoline LO. But I can't take all the credit. I scraplifted it from *Beaglesonthebrain* I LOVE scraplifting. hehehe

Laura, thanks for reposting those LOs I did miss Deb's in the switch.

Deb, I just can't believe you made those embellies. Those were great.

I'll be working on my were I live challenge tomorrow. I didn't forget about it.

I'm trying to work on Devin's baby book today. I messed it up last month and just figured it out. See...I'm taking him to get professional pics taken every month and putting them in his baby book with a short description of every month. Well...I wrote all my 3 month stuff in the 4 month space... ARGGG!!! So I'm trying to find a creative way to fix it...I don't want him to look at it one day and think geez...mom is such a ditz...she couldn't even keep up with how old I was.

Well, I'll check in later taters. Hope everyone is having a fabulous day!!!

hi everyone... well, I actually finished a lo today... I am trying to do my owne thing so I can enter some of these into the lucky 7 contest, so I hope I get around to the challenge one, but I really want to concentrate on the Lucky 7 one, even though I don't think I have a chance, but if you don't enter, you don't have a chance, and they have to be orginal, which I ususally do anyway, but it takes me soo much longer too! LOL.. so here is my lastest... I was laughing because when I was working on this one... Holly did the one of her little girl and we both were working with purple and oranges... which is by far not a combination that a lot of people might pick!! LOL.. but I finished it today so here it is... thanks for the loving in advance!! oppss... I didn't go to preview soo I will post this post then post in the next on the link!!

Hey, I got my challenge done. YEAHH. It is of my house. My photo is pretty boring compared to all of yours. Unfortunately I live in a pretty boring town. My scenery is not as gorgeous as yours. But I had been wanting to do a page about our house since we moved in. So this got me going.
I used:
3 patterened papers
2 buttons
1 flower
1 rub-on
stickers.

I tried making my own pp, it was not so good.

Here are my links

Ok, ladies! I want to run something by you and get some feedback....

Is anyone interested in having the group critique their work? I belong to another critique group and that can be very helpful at times. Let's do it this way...

If you just want us to take a looksie at your page and comment, just post it as we all have been already.

However, if you want **critique**, in a constructive way, let us know! When you post the LO here in the thread, just tell us if you want some help with it. We can use the same formula as my other group... Name 1 thing you like/love about the LO and 2 things you would do differently.

Just something to think about. I would love to hear feedback!

Laura, I think the critique is a good thing. Sometimes you just need someone elses opinion on a LO. I have taken pics of unfinished LOs and sent them to my twin or my sil to ask what they think it needs.
Nina, the colors who used on the LO for your dd are great.
Twila, I can't believe your cat let you get that close to her while she was giving birth. I had a cat decide to give birth in my closet on a fromal dress. UUGGHHH, I really liked that dress too.
Holly, that tree in my front yard is a Tulip tree. Around Easter it blooms with beautiful pink tulips. It's very pretty. I have messed up the journaling on my LOs before. In fact, my mil pointed it out to me. I never even noticed it. Thankfully it was journaled on a journaling block so I was able to just redo it. I wonder how many other oops I have in there that I haven't noticed yet.

Hi all,

Thought I should pop in and catch up with you all (yes I know I'm a slack arse at times ).

Pandy I really like the idea of the critique and think it would help me heaps as I find I get a bit stuck with 'finishing touches' to my layouts, so would love for people to give me some advice & suggestions on those kinds of things.

Anyway I finally got my camera charger back from my Dad's place today (I always manage to leave at least 1 thing behind when I go visiting people lol), so can now get out and get some pictures taken for our groups challenge

I also found some time today to complete a layout I started 3 days ago...don't know what it is lately, but my 10 month old seems to be a lot more active and having shorter naps, which means I have 't had much time to scrap oh well here is my new layout Beautiful tfl.

Just want to say too, I've checked out the new layout's that have been linked to since I last stopped by and my glod you all do such beautiful work

I haven't been on lately because Monday my boyfriend moved out and last night we had a long talk and might be breaking up... We've been together for over a year, but I don't really know what's going to happen. So... I've been keeping a low profile until things get figured out and I feel better.

Steph So sorry to hear things are not going so well for you right now. I hope things get better... We're here if you need to talk.

Nina You are so funny talking about sitting there in your pajamas! You are so right that that is exactly when ppl show up to visit!! Hope you had a good day!

Nic! What a gorgeous layout! What do you mean you made the title with a transparency? Can you be more specific?

Ladies! I am so glad to hear that everyone is in favor of the critique and the point system! I'll see what I can do about setting that up that information.

Afternoon all or night or even morning depending on your time zone

Pandy,

The way I did the title was by printing the text onto a film transparency (the stuff you use for overhead projectors) and placing it straight onto the layout (same method as using a rub-on), but I didn't use much pressure when transferring the text onto the layout as I wanted a more 'stamped' look to it iykwim.

ok so you can all no doubt now tell that I am somewhat hopeless when it comes to explaining things

Thank you everyone for your wonderful replies on my Beautiful layout, it is very much appreciated

Nic! Thanks for the response! I have experimented with this technique you are telling me about with rather varied results. One question... did you let the transparency 'sit' with the ink on it for any length of time before applying it to you layout? Or did you apply it directly?

Thanks!

I applied it directly to the layout.

Also I used the shiny side of an ink jet transparency (opposite side to what the packaging said to use), but must say it seems to be a lot of trial and error with doing this, should see the amount of scrap paper on my desk with all my attempts

Thank you everyone for the thoughts! I certainly hope things get better. Last night we actually had a very nice night: we went on a date to a local opera. I guess we'll see how things go.

Everyone's layouts are so cool! I'm hoping to work on some today, but we'll see how it goes. With my current situation I've been getting calls from my friends from all over, and I have like 5 calls to return! It's going to be a long day.

Hi!!

What a day today! So much has happened! But right now, Kiruna Festival is in full swing downtown and I think we're going to go down and there and just look around a few minutes. So, I'll be back later on to fill y'all in and respond to posts.

Hope everyone is having a great evening!

Nic!! Thanks again for your response. I know when I tried the transparency / Homemade rub-on trick, I never could seem to get it right! I also experimented a lot until I just got fed up with it. I was hoping you would say something like, "Oh yes, you leave the ink to set for exactly X minutes and you're all set!" No such luck, huh? I think once I managed something pretty good, but most of the time it just looked like a huge ink blot.

My news! I started back to work today and it was ok. It was only 3 hours so I wasn't too devasted missing Sofia. She was home with her daddy and he's fantastic with her.

On my way home, I went by the hobby store. We have only one, and when I first went there several months ago, they had NO scrapbooking supplies and no plans to get anything in. They told me if I wanted anything I could order it from their catalog. So I have been in quite a few times to buy acrylic paint and card stock and random things - each time asking about scrapbooking stuff and finding out that others in town are asking, too.

So, now, they have completely rearranged the store and converted the whole front into scrapbooking stuff although they don't have much supplies yet - it's all on order. I had went in and showed them some of my pages about a week ago and so today, the owner came out and asked me if I was interested in holding classes!!! I was so thrilled!!! Of course I said yes and we have set a date of Sept. 1 (after school starts back and everyone is back from vacation), for the first 'make and take'. Woohoo!!

K, that's it for now. I'm off to work on some birthday cards for the Swedish Swap I'm involved in,

Hugs and Happy day to all!

CONGRATULATIONS LAURA!!!!!!! That's great news. Pretty soon you'll have all kinds of scrappin' buddies in town.

My boss told me today he's going to bring the last stack of pictures in of the house they're building so I can finish his album. Did I tell you I was 'volunteered' to do a album for my boss about the house he's building for his son. After my co-wrokers (who don't scrapbook) volunteered me while I was not there I really didn't feel like I could say no, he is one of my bosses afterall. Anyhoo, It's been a NIGHTMARE. I don't recommend doing a album for someone you don't know well on a topic you don't know at all. IT'S DIFFICULT. I could kill my co-workers, they have NO IDEA what kind of time and money goes into a album. Plus he gives me stacks & stacks of pics that all look the same. UUGHHH. I will be so glad when I am done. I will have the backbone to say NO next time. Sorry, just had to vent to people who would understand. Talk to you all later, Mindy

Laura... what fun teaching.. I wish I could find something to do like that part time.. I would really enjoy it.
Mindy is right you will have all kinds of scrappin buddies soon! cool beans too that the store is getting more for you.. maybe teaching you can encourage them to take it up a notch! :O)

nice lo's Lynn.... and to add to her list of things mindy.. she is queen twice a year for a whole month!! How does she do it?

OK.. well, we are having a neighborhood garage sale this weekend and I am having one so I can raise money to go on a scrappy weekend next March to Michigan with some people from this site... but here is the deal.. I sat and went through barbaie stuff for like 3 hours today seperating and bagging for the sale...LOL.. and I am going to let dd have the money for that... talk about a horrid job!! I hope to not see a barbie for some time now!! LOL.... still need to get some stuff together for my part or dd will be the money maker at the sale!!

Mindy.... I am soo sorry to hear about you making that album.. I mean.. is your boss paying you for your time and stuff or were you just volunteered as a sacraficial lamb? I mean I can't believe he would just expect you to make it with your own money for him.. geeze.. I would have said either give me x amount of money and I will spend what you give me and you get what you get for you money... or keep a running tab for reimbursement or the ones who volunteer you, you could send them each a bill for their costs in not making it...but of course their dollar amount would be higher than yours because after all you have all the time put into it.... ... yes I imagine it is a nightmare... hopefully you will be done soon!! is it an 8x8.. I hope!!!

steph... hope you didn't spend all day on the phone!! LOL.. that can be tiring!!

nic.. I have only tried that trasparency thing once... I think as long as you go for a rough kind of look you are good.. although only doing it once.. I am no expert!!

ok... I am not sure I will be any good at this critiquing thing.. I am always soo afraid of hurting someone's feeling... I am such a softy!! To be honest it kind of scares me!! LOL.. but really I have not problem telling my kids what to do!!!

ok... it is almost 11:00 do you think I should put my 3 year old night owl to bed? yes.. I think I might just do that.. although he is playing soo well in his room by himself.. geeze..hate to go see what that looks like!!

ok see you all tomorrow....

Hello everyone! Let me answer a question that has been ask a lot lately. My cat had three kittens. It was her first litter and I could not believe she let us so close to her either, then as soon as they were born she let us move them! She is a really sweet cat.

Now for the critiquing, I am all for it. I don't know what the point system is so I am wondering about that. Would someone explain that to me please, I would appreciate it.

Steph, hugs to you.

Nina, He has offered to pay me and I have kept most of my receipts. But, I don't know if I can take money from him. My DH says I can't be the martyr of scrapbooking if I take any money. He knows me so well. I'd rather whine about it than take any money. hehehe We'll see. I will say that it is NOT my best work. I really don't want to put that much time and effort into it. Horrible I know.

Mindy

Hey Laura,
Your 'Learning to Slide' LO and my "Trampoline Fun' are both in the top 6 for EsteeLynn's multiple picture challenge. I can't believe the first challenge I entered and I was in the top 6. Especially with all the talented girls from this group that also entered. That means I may have to enter more challenges. Thanks for the encouragement Laura.

Yeah Nina,I guess I do get the baby blues some. That may have something to do with the bird choice huh? I think it would be cool to be able to fly and see things the way they do, it would be such an adrenilin rush too. The next best thing is a race car. Hehehe. I actually have thought this one over for a few days...I went into another thread just to see what they were talking about and someone had asked that question. So...I thought it was a cute and borrowed there idea. I have more too...hehehe. So take your time! I think a pampered pup is a good one though, you would never have to worry.


Hey Suzi! That is a really good idea! I'll have to brain storm it.I have some sky pp...hmmm... A pampered pup too... you girls are all about being pampered huh??

I feel like I have scrappers block or something!! I have been trying to do a "you are my sunshine L/O" for the past 3 days. I even went to the sb store a bought pp and flowers hoping for inspiration...but I don't really know what I want. So maybe I should just try something else for a while...

Geeeeesh.....
Been running all day! Managed to get my oil changed and car inspected.
Then the insurance adjuster did the estimate on the damage to my car during the last hail storm. I'm excited to get it fixed as my car was in mint condition before and it makes me sad to see the dings.

I have been inspired me to
make chicken enchiladas! I know you all are shocked... because everyone knows I don't cook.
I went to Wally world to buy all of the ingredients for Chicken enchiladas tonight. I have a great recipe that doesn't seem to hard... But this is coming from the lady that doesn't know the difference between garlic salt or powder.
I wanted to be helpful one night and make the garlic bread to go with our Spaghetti dinner and I used the salt not the powder. Needless to say it was some really bad garlic toast!!

Found this really cool scrap store and thought you all might like to see it: Scrap Store

Well off to check out the new layouts

Holly-Wolly I think I would be a pampered kitty instead of a pup. Cause then I could be snobby and arrogant as well! I know your 'scrapper's block' has passed... can't wait til you upload that latest layout! It's gorgeous!

Nina! So sorry to hear you're Barbie'd-Out! Hope the sale goes well!!

Suzi! What a creative and unique LO. I need to file that idea away for another day!

For those of you behind on the thread Please remember to check the very first post of this thread for all news, updates and information if you have been MIA for any length of time.I am trying to keep this updated. Also, all challenge LOs and points will be posted there.

Hey Nina, hope the yard sale was a hit! I always wanna have a yard sale, but I am always too lazy. It is alot of work.

Thanks Mindy for the comment...It actually really takes me a long time to do a L/O. Once I picked my pp. I worked on it for aabout 7 hours yesterday...I stayed up until 4 am again...My DH usually fusses at me about staying up so late, but I got away with it scott free last night cause he stayed up too. He put his race car motor together. Hehehe...sorry for the rambling... Oh yeah I was also gonna tell ya that you have to upload a pic of that tulip tree in bloom, I have never seen one and I bet it is gorgeous in bloom! Okie well hope ya have a good weekend!!

Hey everyone!

Things have been chugging along with my boyfriend, and hopefully will end up good in the end. He says he's still figuring things out, but we got to spend some time together yesterday so that was good. Granted, all we did was clean up the house he bought, but at least it was something. I hope to start that scrapbook soon.

Today I entered a contest at my lss. I entered in my layouts for the challenge here, as they are my best thus far. At the end of July I'll find out if I won. I'm hoping, but I saw some really good ones that will probably win.

While I was there I also splurged and bought some embossing powder and ink. I have a heat gun already, so I figured I'd give embossing a try. I figure since I'm having a bad week I can buy myself some gifts, right?

I hope everyone's having a good day!

Hey there Steph! Great to hear from you in here. I was a lil' worried about you. I sure do hope things work out for you.

Yay!! Embossing stuff!! You will have to let me know what the embossing is like...I have never done it and I am interested.

Thanks for the comment on my new L/O.

So have you entered your L/Os in some challenges here on sb.com ?? If so you have to link us to them so we can vote.

Hey everybody,
I'm just checking in for the day. I had to work today and now I'm watching my Cleveland Indians play. I love baseball season. I just bring out my laptop, surf the gallery and watch the Indians play. For me it doesn't get much better than that.
Steph, I'm glad to hear things are going better for you two. You'll have to let me know how the embossing goes. That's one of the techniques I'm afraid to try.
Nina, I agree with Holly. I keep thinking I should do a yard sale. But it just seems like too much work. Maybe, one day. I'm glad yours went well.
Holly, I've been thinking about the animal guestion and I have no answer. I really can't think of anything that doesn't have pro & cons. Maybe I'm thinking TOO HARD about it.
Lynn, I hope you have a nice relaxing week.

I'll check in with you girls tomorrow.

Mindy
