Julie,
Did you ever get to work? I can't stand that you guys are three hours ahead. I just can't keep up with the chat. I went back to real ancient history for my redos. Three pages of a college scrapbook that should be one. I will upload and e-mail to you today. Also I took some photos of my house interior that I will PM to you.

Have a great day everyone! Vel hope you feel better soon!

You can add links anywhere on the sidebar...you don't have to put it under the 'about me' section.

Did you get it figured out? if not, I'll be more than happy to help!

Dee, go to your gallery and click on the tab called albums. In there (I think on the bottom left) will be a box that says manage albums. Once you're there it will list all your albums and give you a spot to add a new one. We're all making them private with a password. And we're all using the same password. If you need it, pm me or one of the others and we'll tell you what it is. Any problems, let me know and I'll walk you through it.

OK, ladies, I have another request for help. I have five pics of RJ playing on the swingset last March that I have no idea what to do with. I've put a pic in my FSS album (click on the link to my gallery in my signature and you can view it there). He's wearing an orange and blue outfit, with grass showing and his swingset in the photos. No idea what color cs to use, should I make a pocket for the additional photos, what embellies etc. I'm just at a loss. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much!

Cool house pics! The pink bathroom is a hoot! All of your files came through very, very tiny. I think I can make them work though. If they look funky once we post them to the blog, I may have you resend them a tad larger.

Fantastic pics of RJ! If we ever did that 'scrap someone else's photo' challenge, I'd ask for these!

Hi ladies! Welcome Richelle and Dee! Sorry I missed out on the action yesterday...but I have a good excuse...I was at the Dr. getting to hear the babies heartbeat for the first time!! It was so overwhelmingly exciting! I was so nervous about it and so was my dh. It was such a relief to hear that sound. My blood pressure was high, but I'm pretty sure that was due to my anxiety. I'm going to go post a lo in the For Scraps Sake album on my page. Have a great night everyone!

Ha! Go look at your Critique album. You didn't make it private (requiring a password). You've got random women in there saying, "cute" and "congratulations".

I'm not gonna put a critique next to "cute". They'll think I'm hateful.

Sorry to hear that you still are not feeling 100%. I have been having trouble sleeping a lot lately. It's to the point where I think I need to talk to a doctor. You'll see posts on here from me at 3 AM sometimes. That's usually when I wake up and can't fall back to sleep

How many layouts should we have in our critique album at this point?

I am going to buy some paper today to do the challenge. Hopefully can get it done this weekend! You are so quick!!!

good morning chicas!

I got my album created, but nothing in it yet.

I plan on doing the challenge this weekend - is there a due date?

I'll have to go check out the blog a little later - today is my busy day at work.

SPeaking of, does anyone mind if I talk about the group on my blog? Could I post the link to the group blog on my links? LMK

Hope everyone has a fab Friday. I will be checking in a little later on.

Most definitely talk about the group on your blog. Neat idea. Perhaps I should also create links to our members' blogs if they have them.

I know you have a blog, I've recently started one, Mel has a blog. Who else has one? If you do, would you want them linked?

Ok..I think I fixed the problem. The lo used to be at the end of my main album, so the comments that are on there are from that. I took it out of the main album and just put it in the FSS one.

Thanks! Glad my employer has absolutely no idea how I keep myself busy during the day.

Every so often I'll push around paperwork, mumble, stamp something and dial the 1-800, pre-recorded number for my bank to look busy.

Ha Ha! I kid... I kid... no, not really, it's true. No, I'm kidding... really. Or am I?

Welcome, Holly (right?). We're glad you joined us.

To those who helped me with the pics of RJ, I decided to go with the BG Color Me Silly (I had more of that than the SR Metropolis) and I just made a transparency filmstrip. Yep, drew it in my picture program, adjusted it to size and printed it out. Can't wait to get it on the page and show you. I saved it as a jpeg so if anyone's ever interested in printing a transparent filmstrip (hehe) let me know and I'll forward it to you. Thanks for the suggestions ladies.

Hey, sorry to be MIA. My computer with Adobe on it won't hook up to the wireless, so I can't post my newest LO. If I can't get on later this evening, I am planning to transfer via the jump drive and move to this computer. I love technology. I am one room away, both Dell's etc.

Hmmm, I'm going to have to look through my links. It appears they've changed their Web site and I can't find them either. I'm almost positive I have quite a few of the transparency PDFs saved to my hard drive, so at the very least I can forward them to you. Let me do a bit more snooping first and I'll let you know.

1. What is your real name/what do you liked to be called?
Holly

2. Where are you from?
Grew up in Des Moines, IA. Moved to Austin, TX right after college.

3. Family?
Romeo, my handsome Romanian hubby (and yes, that's his real name!). Four cats: Martin and Oscar (3 year old males) and Sara and Anya (10 month old females)

4. Occupation?
Software Engineer

5. Age?
28

6. How many hours a week do you typically spend scrapping?
I try to scrap at least two or three. If I go to crop, between 6 and 12 hours

7. What size LOs do you prefer/do you do?
12x12 or 8x8

8. How would you describe your scrapping style?
I really don't know what to call it. Anybody got a scrappin' style dictionary?

9. How long have you been scrapping?
I started seriously scrapping about 2 years ago

10. Do you have a product or technique you’re known for? Or what do you always seem to turn to when you’re putting together a lo?
I love flowers, buttons, and rub-ons.

11. Do you have a favorite manufacturer or product line?
Prima!! LOVE flowers. For paper, I have a lot of Chatterbox , Scenic Route , and Basic Grey . And Bazzill , of course

12. Is there a technique you’d love to learn or have tried and gave up on?
The collage look is so cool, and I've taken classes where we've done the style, but I just can't seem to do it by myself. I'm also not very good at combining patterned paper s from multiple manufacturers.

13. Is there someone on sb.com or elsewhere whose style you love or whose LOs inspire you?
Stampo, Gnomes, Ginger Williams, Tri Mommy

14. What do you hope to gain from being in the For Scraps Sake group?
To try new things, make new friends, have fun, and challenge myself.

Oh, and I had a suggestion . . . could you maybe edit the very first post, and put links to each member's gallery there? I'm having trouble keeping track of all the people, it'd be easy to go page one and fine the name/gallery I need in one spot. Don't want to rock the boat though, since I'm the newbie.

So, am I understanding that you were able to create one of those film strips with your transparencies? Definitely send me the file, I used that one on Tyler's 9th birthday and kind of wished I had another in my stash.

Julie, I'll forward you the e-mail I sent Mel with it. I measured the openings so you would know before hand.

Holly, just saw your comments on my pics I needed help with. Since I've already put the page together, and I really liked your suggestion, I bookmarked the pagemap to use again. It seems I take way, way, way too many pics and then can't decide which ones I like best so I have about 6 or 7 screaming "use me!"

Oh, and I had a suggestion . . . could you maybe edit the very first post, and put links to each member's gallery there? I'm having trouble keeping track of all the people, it'd be easy to go page one and fine the name/gallery I need in one spot. Don't want to rock the boat though, since I'm the newbie.



Rock the boat! We need input from everyone. I don't know if you've read back through the entire thread, but we're all in this together. If you have ideas for anything (including challenges, swap ideas, blog stuff, etc) speak up.

I like the idea of linking things from page one and also listing challenges there. I am afraid that sometimes I don't read as carefully as I should and I forget where things are. This may be because I am the "old" member!
I almost got the RP layout done. Just need title and journaling. Hopefully will finish tomorrow. Then I can post. I love the new Rusty Pickle Lucky line. It is green and blue and very Irish.
Nice.

'Morning ladies! I just got that lo done and uploaded, if you want to take a look. You can see what the filmstrip looks like in action.

Morning!

DH and I are about ready to leave and go yard sale-ing. After that, I'm taking a 1/2 hour road trip & going to the best ever scrappy store. I'm after some sort of valentine paper (acrylic album for my mom) and baby paper (baby pics of my nephew I'm wanting to work on).

Then I'll be holed up in my scrap area til the wee hours of the morning. I'll check in a little later.

Vel, off to check out your new LO. I *should* have my re-do up on the blog later today at some point. I just have to finish the title & it'll be done.

Have a great day all!

Good morning from the West Coast. I have to go do my grocery shopping. Then I will be back here where I really should clean the house.
But... who knows!

So, I just went and spent $35 on scrappy stuff that I didn't really have to spend. Oh well....the lights are still on and I have heat. LOL.

I thought of a challenge for us to do, let me know what y'all think. I think it would be really cool to go around our town and take pics of landmarks and scrap them. Since we all live in different parts of the country (well, almost) it would be neat to see where we're all from. Even though, I'm sure that Jen's and mine would be about the same (still can't believe we live in the same town).

Let me know...if you don't like the idea, that's okay, too. Obviously, this wouldn't be until after our first challenge is done.

Gonna try to scrap some now before work using my new goodies!!!!

Getting new stuff is so much fun, isn't it?

I think that's a great idea for a challenge. My first thought was, uh oh, I haven't started a BOM yet, but I think something like this could easily go into RJ's book. Later on in life it might be cool for him to see what it looked like here as he was growing up. I've got some ideas in mind already. Maybe we could start the challenge the Monday after this one is done.

And thanks for sending that stuff. You rock!

FYI, I edited the first post to add links to everyone's galleries. We have 12 in the group, right? Just wanted to make sure I didn't omit anyone. That would suck.

Just checking in. I spent waaayyy too much at my scappy stores today. Like, waaaayyy too much. Like, what the heck was I thinking kind of spending. I have tons of great stuff, but I'm feeling a little guilty. ~waving hand~ Ok... that's enough of that!

Melissa, I love the idea of your challenge. My wheels are already turning! We have UF, of course, Devils Millhopper, Tom Petty is from here, as is Sister Hazel. Great challenge idea!

I know how you feel, Julie. I went to the art store, Archivers, Joanns, Michael's, AND Hobby Lobby today. Though somehow, I managed to spend less than $100 altogether!! Of course, gift cards helped.

I went to Hobby Lobby also! They had their XMas stuff 90% off! Picked up a lot of stuff there. Then, of course, this morning I get their email specials for next week - and now I have the urge to go back. Open stock paper is 5/$1.00 and ours really has a nice selection.

Be back in a bit to check galleries! Hope you guys got some scrappin' done while I was at work.

Just wanted to give you girls a head's up. I just got a message from Dee. She is in the hospital. She went to the ER on Friday night. At this point, she is just waiting for test results to see what is going on.

Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

Goodness! Tell her we're thinking of her.

In other news, my local partner in scrapbook crime has just joined sb.com . Would you all mind leaving her some 'welcome to the joint' kind of love when you have the time.

Her name is Paula and here's her page: SureWhyNot

Do you know why Dee had to go? If they kept her overnight, must be serious.

My Hobby Lobby's selection of open-stock paper hasn't changed in two years. Very sad.

Oh, so FYI . . . for those who looked at my Donna Downey layout . . . This is the ******** drill:
http://store.scrapbook.com/f-08516.html

If you use your imagination, it does look a bit like a man's package. And the explanation she gave on how to use it . . . Let's just say it was a lot of fun, and good thing the class was adult females only!!

Melissa, heard any update from Dee yet?

Holly, OK, I've seen the "tool" ~giggle~, so I'm off to your gallery to see the LO.

Debbie, howdy! Was hoping you'd show up soon.

I just sat down to start working on my acrylic album. It's kind of scary. I've never done one before, so this should be interesting.

PS...Melissa, I think your challenge idea is great. I think it will especially be interesting to see how different or similar ours are since we are from the same town. Great idea!

Ok, girlies....here's what I know so far about Dee:
She had a "seizure-like" episode on Friday. She couldn't talk and her face went numb. Only lasted about a minute, but alarmed her and hubby enough to go to the ER.

Well, they found a *mass* on her brain....they don't know at this point if it is an infection or a tumor. They are pumping her with steroids to try to reduce the swelling on the brain. When I talked to her earlier today, she had to go, they were ready to take her for and MRI. I will call her in the morning to say hi.

She is in good spirits. She has family and friends that are in and out of the hospital with her. Her best friend was there when I called. Her husband had just left to go home for a few hours.

So, that's the scoop...please keep her in your prayers. I will let her know that everyone sends their love and is concerned.
