Great work, everyone! I'm not working on LO's per se..I'm setting up my own page kits, because Friday we are off to the beach (finally!!)
So, I'm hoping to take the kits with me and glue in the evening. Assuming I can sneak them into our teeny tiny RV..because along with that goes my computer and oil pastel supplies..hmm..maybe I'll just put everything into my cropper bag? That will eliminate 2 bags right there, the computer and the art supplies, which is like (well, not like, but IS) another computer bag..

Hey everyone. Finally got around to scrapping these professional graduation photos. If you have any ideas for a title and/or where to put it, feel free to suggest. I just realized I forgot to include one! TIA!

graduation

I had to do a double take on your Christmas layout. Is there any reason you didn't use green in the papers?

As to your other layout, too cute! Less toys for them, more toys for us...well, sb stuff any way.

Left some love on the LOs. I didn't get much of a chance to work on my lift LO today. DS is teething (first and possibly second teeth at the same time) and wants lots of consoling. I've got it all planned out so it shouldn't take me too long to put it together.

Hi ladies - happy Wednesday.

I've messed up here I think - I uploaded my challenge LO already, I made a new 'challenges' album but it's still viewable on my gallery first page so...if I now upload more stuff and ask for critique from you guys you'll see my challenge LO. Hmmm - stupid I know to have uploaded so early but I just had time and wanted to get it out of the way..

I am taking a class this weekend and it's using the Scarlet letter pp, i will upload what we make and maybe it can give you some ideas!

I think i am caught up. I am so amazed that you ladies are able to do so many LOs...I can barely complete one a week! I am linking one i did for a scraplift challenge (mine's the first entry, so there is no lift) and it had certain journaling requirements. The Thinker and the Stinker

Carolyn, mine has shown up in my main album too, even after I switched it to the other album... If you click on your challenge page and then click the Edit Details button, you should be able to move it to the right album, I've had to do this a couple times, but hopefully it will work for you.

Becky, your page is cute! Your husband is a hoot! Those poses made me laugh!

Wow great pages!

As far as the albums go, yeah, I think you just un-click 'main' when editing your photo details. I'll go set up my album now. If anyone cannot complete the lift by 5pm on Friday, please PM me by at least by 4pm! Then we'll extend it for you!

Have a great Wednesday everyone!

Thanks Becky and Lauri - I have tried editing as you suggested but the right box was already ticked. I un-ticked it then ticked it again but nothing changed. I'll just have to not ask for your critique on anything before Friday I guess!

I asked about the lack of green because of his gift, not because of Christmas.

Great job on the Thinker/Stinker LO Becky! No luck moving my LO - maybe it something to do with the gallery settings and who can view it?? I've just thought of that...I'll go try it.

Sorry for those of you suffering while your babies get their teeth, it's horrid for them isn't it. Mind you my eldest, Steph is getting her wisdom teeth now and they're not much fun either!!

OK, I've sorted it out now. If anyone else didn't know and wants to, it's to do with settings for your gallery - you have to make it viewable only to friends or something other than public so then it's not generally viewable when you click on the gallery.

No scrapping for me yet today..though I did write down some ideas.

We spent the bigger part of the day at the courthouse trying to get child support..I wanted to take my camera to later scrap the moment, but my daughter said no..

Brandy, yep, I printed my title and journaling directly onto cardstock. And the sunray I traced from the patterned paper ! Wish I had a thinner point on my marker though.

Carolyn, loved your page! And congratulations on not just making the title 'Joe.' I thought it worked so great with the photo!

Hi all!

Just catching up! You all have been busy today!

Lauri, I loved the Relax page, it is awesome,

and Carolyn, I love the Blue Eyes page, and yes Joe is such a cutie! Great job both of you!

I went to a lss today, and lo and behold I only spent $8.34! That's amazing! I think there was just too too much that I wanted this time, so I just didn't get much at all... don't know if that makes sense to anyone? Anyway, I'll be back later, have a great afternoon.

Lauri, I love the semi circle on your page. I'd wanted to do sometime similar on a LO recently until I realized that I work with 12x12 and I don't have a large format printer...maybe someday I can figure out how to get the same effect.

Audrey..just a suggestion on how to do it on the regular printer:
Do a half page to glue on. You CAN print up to 14 or more inches..so, cut the sheet down and print sideways, then turn it. Hope that made sense?

It was an interesting day, to say the least. There's no real hostility, just hasn't been any support since she was born, aside from one $50 money order.

Well..I downloaded a BUNCH of fonts last night, so I'm going to play with them and work on some LO's..I have several pics printed and waiting.

ah, don't you just love fonts!!

audrey, i've printed directly onto cardstock with a 12x12 page as well. so long as you have at least one strip of paper that will stretch across the page, you can connect them without anyone knowing they were split.

here are two examples:
example 1
example 2

Printing onto cardstock is such a wonderful thing. Don't let the size stop you! HTH!

It can be either one. I believe with private albums, only friends can view them? Is that right? Or they require a password? Hmm. I can't remember. If it's the previous, then I believe I friended everyone already. I may have missed someone though. Oh I'll have to double check tomorrow.

Off to bed, can't wait to finish my lift tomorrow! G'night!

Well done Becky for not spending too much!

I order online from a couple of US stores but I see that your postal rates have all changed recently and there's really limited options for international posting now. It's tricky getting enough in one flat rate envelope to make it worthwhile spending on the postage but not overloading as air parcels are no longer available! It's a real shame as sometimes I just can't wait for stuff to get to the UK stores!!

Talking about our CS albums, I think you can choose between public, friends, best friends or passworded. I have mine in friends but I don't think I have everyone 'friended' yet so I might need to catch up on that.

Printing directly onto cardstock looks SO professional and polished doesn't it. I must do it more often!

Look forward to catching up with you all later!

Oh I am SO ready to cry right now!! I stayed up until 2 am this morning working on my "lift", only to wake up this morning to it ruined!! If I had to guess, it looks as though the cat THREW UP ON IT! 10 rooms in this house he could have picked from, and he picks my scrap table??!?? Oh, bother!! And only having had 4 hours of sleep because I worked so late on it doesn't help matters any. I guess the bright side is it can be redone, and fairly quickly now that I know how I want it to look...but still...and as I speak he's pacing between me and the stairs meowing, which means he wants me to feed him. Stupid cat...

Stupid cat... I'm sorry, I know its not funny the cat did that, but we have "stupid cat" too.
Every time he does something..well, stupid, one of will say "Stupid cat".
Of course, children pick up on phrases..the nearly 3 will say "you're a stupid cat!" when she can't have her way..and it just sounds so funny!

I'm really sorry all your hardwork has to be redone. I've had that happen, where they either throw up or toss a hairball on something of mine, usually photos I have laying around.

But, this morning, my cat really is "a stupid cat". DH left the bedroom door open just enough for him to come in. Now, he's a bit clumsy when walking across my bed to get to my window, so he used my leg to break his fall and I have a nice 4" scratch going down it.

And hey! That gives me an inspiration! (not the scratch, the "stupid cat".) I have a pic of him showing his "stupidness"..I think I'll title it "Stupid Cat", lol..

Morning everyone I'm sorry to hear about the cat incident. I have to scrap at our kitchen table and I've had many things get ruined due to my kids being clumsy or not paying attention. I've never lost a LO though thankfully. I wonder if you give the "evil eye" to the cat if he'll understand?

The postage rates are affecting everyone. I used to participate in a lot of the RAK swaps and I can't afford to do it anymore. I've limited how many swaps I've signed up for as well. I've also noticed that mail is taking longer...I haven't figured out how they make such a huge increase and then slow their service. I sure hope your LSS's overthere don't have to rely on US stores for their inventory...they may never get anything.


We may have to pool together and make you a HUGE care package for Christmas lol

Oh NO!!!!!

I do understand though - I have 3 cats just like that one. If one misses, another one gets it.

Ahhh, now that's a cool idea!!

It seems it does slow things somewhat because when I am emailing stores asking when stuff they've been advertising as 'coming soon' will actually arrive and they often say the shipment has been delayed for 2 weeks or whatever. Having said that I'm sure it's not exclusively an American thing!! Our postal service is c**p. It seem to get more and more expensive, their profits seem to go up and up but workers are constantly on strike and rural post offices are shutting up and down the country because they're not profitable apparently. I can't make head or tail of it really, I just know they have us over a barrel.

Oh I am SO ready to cry right now!! I stayed up until 2 am this morning working on my "lift", only to wake up this morning to it ruined!! If I had to guess, it looks as though the cat THREW UP ON IT! 10 rooms in this house he could have picked from, and he picks my scrap table??!?? Oh, bother!! And only having had 4 hours of sleep because I worked so late on it doesn't help matters any. I guess the bright side is it can be redone, and fairly quickly now that I know how I want it to look...but still...and as I speak he's pacing between me and the stairs meowing, which means he wants me to feed him. Stupid cat...



Oh NO!!!!!

I do understand though - I have 3 cats just like that one. If one misses, another one gets it.



We've got 3 kitties too and they're the reason I had doors put up to my room! They're indoor/outdoor kitties and they love to lay where I'm working! But they've never thrown up on my papers.

Could your kitty be giving you critique? Sorry, couldn't resist asking. I'm weak!

Thanks for the laugh...HA...and to think I just added you all as my friends...

I have, in the last three hours: survived TWO tornado warnings, made dinner, did dishes, did two loads of laundry, AND was successful in re-creating my "lift".

I'm tired...

WOW Kate! What a night you've had. You must be exhausted. I hate tornadoes. I've only ever lived in NY and PA, and they get tornadoes every, hmm, 50 years? (knock on wood) But I still freak out every time my desktop weather bug says there's a tornado warning.

As you may remember from my rubber soul lo...I hate weather!

We're leaving for the beach in the morning..I'll have internet tomorrow evening (at least, that's what they tell me, lol) When we leave Rockport for Padre Island though..I'll be without until we get back, and I'm not sure when that's going to be.

Might be Sunday or Monday..

Me too! We are putting our house on the market, and the master bedroom has our computer,bed,scrapstuff,b ookshelf,treadmill,and dresser. So all day yesterday we were cleaning and organizing, and donating tons of stuff! My scrapspace is twice as small now... most of the stuff went into the closet. So we'll see how scrappin goes. But our room definately looks less cluttered, and Bigger, which is always good! We got rid of the bookshelf, and switched stuff around My scrap stuff went from two tables to one, which is amazing in itself!....Anyone want to buy a house?

have a nice trip, shirley! the beach must be so lovely this time of year. take pics to scrap!!

vivian, good luck with ur scrap space. that can always be such a project!

i won't be linking everyone's lift to their original, because then people can't guess who had them. didn't we want to do that? i will put them all together in a site-wide poll and send you the direct link by 5pm ET (sorry it'll be so late for you carolyn!)

I'll be looking for a new house soon, but not in Arizona! Joe and I can't stand it here anymore. As soon as we figure out a career change, we're off to NY. Good luck selling! Where are you off to once you do?
