We all understand RL can become a pain sometimes and life gets busy, so if you want to leave the group, Please let us know or PM me. There will be no hard feelings!

Due to the amount of scrappers who want to be in an active support group we only have one "rule" to stay a member and that is the "posting" rule. The rest are just guidelines so people know what is going on.

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


Posting: Please check in at least once a week and say hello and let us know you're ok.
Now, if you're ill, or you're going away etc and can't get on, we totally understand that, just let us know that you won't be on for a few weeks so we don't worry!
If a member does not post anything for a month their spot will be opened up to new members.

Guidelines:

Layouts: No specific number required, just post them as you do them. If you have a LO you would like to share please put the link in your post(instead of a general can you look at my gallery) That way we can talk about your latest project together!
We all love comments and such so please make an effort to check out each others galleries and when a member posts up a LO let's all check it out!

Challenges: We are going to have monthly challenges.
It is not compulsory you take part.
Anyone one of you are more than welcome to host a challenge. If you would like to do so, please let me know as each challenge will be posted on the SBB blog. [url=http://sassyblinging babes.blogspot.com[/url]. This way we can keep track of them rather than having to trawl back through posts to find them
If you are going to take part in a challenge, Please ensure you can commit to it through to the end, more so if things need to be posted. If things need to be sent to someone by the 25, please have it in the post by the 23rd.
We understand that things may pop up to prevent you completing the challenge, if this is the case please PM the host and let them know.
Please do not flake.

Other: Get to know each other and become a fab group of friends!!!

Hi ladies!
I'm just checking in before I get busy here at home. It's my "Sunday," and my last day to get my bedroom cleaned up so my dad doesn't break his neck. I'm going on vacation for a week starting early Saturday morning. He's going to spend a couple of days at my house so he can take my non-driving, college-age son to school. (get that boy a driver's license!)

Also ... (see my next post)

I found an exciting online class through Big Picture Scrapbooking. It's kind of costly: $52 plus supplies. But it breaks down to $1 per technique learned, which I think is affordable. (Just what a newbie scrapper like me needs!)

The techniques include working with micro beads; Mod Podge; acrylic paint texture builder; adirondack inks; Glaze embossing pens; bleach pen and other items I've never used in my scrapbooking.

Here is all the info:

Thanks Trisha! Yes, I'll finally graduate in December. I have to take 2 classes this summer and 2 in the fall and I'm done! It will have taken me 4 1/2 years when it's all over. It's hard going to school and working too but I'm hanging in there! Scrapping keeps me sane

Oops, guess I should change my profile.

I live in Washington state and my DH and I flew to Phoenix in April and spent a week there on vacation. We had the most perfect weather - just right for us, especially since when we left it had snowed!

I only have time to SB vacations, that's why it seems like all I do is travel, LOL. I just finished up our trip to NY and VA from last August. Had to finish that book, before I could start on our AZ trip. I still have lots of photos to scrap, but so little time. Sigh ~

Wow ... I think I counted four Sassy new members! Very cool!! We've still got room for a few more.

Chelle, I'm going to Yosemite. I'll be staying in a place where there is no Internet access. So, I'll AWOL from May 17 through May 22.

As for the class, yeah, it sounds like it can take up to 1.5 hours 5 days a week (probably more for a slow newbie like me. Most likely, I'll work on my projects a little at a time one or two nights a week and then I'll try to finish it up on the weekend. I've never been to a scrapbooking class or done any type of a make'n'take. So I thought this would be a good way for me to get familiar with several scrapbooking techniques.

Bonnie, I will be stopping by your gallery!

Hey Allie! Glad to see you back!!! You share the same bday with my baby girl!

Rhonda - good luck with the shopping excursion & Dr. appt!

Amanda - how do you like living in Hawaii?? I want to go there, someday.

Dawn!!! hey!!!!

Mariah!! are you surviving without Reco these days? There's a big DFW scrap group on yahoo if you're interested. Mostly they meet in the HEB area, several classes and crops that are way fun. Let me know and I'll get you invited.

Hey Dani!!

My mojo has been missing until the last week or so. I'm working on a mini-book about my nephews for my sister, and it is coming out sooooo nice! I can't help but be excited.

QOTD: Have y'all ever created a gift for someone else, and then wanted to keep it??

My sister will be lucky if I let her take this book home with her.

Trisha, that's a great idea! But, what's a RAK? I can't believe how much posting I've missed out on just between last night and this morning!

I was at the hospital this morning. My grandma is in there. I'm sorry I haven't been very chatty.

I just wanted to say welcome to all the other newbies like me and I look forward to getting to know everyone!! Have a great day, ladies!

Amanda, that is awesome your husband is stationed in Hawaii. I know you probably don't think it's awesome to move around so much though. I work for the Navy and we have a couple bases in Pearl Harbor. I bet it's beautiful over there!

Good morning all!

Bonnie and Rhonda~hope your drs visits go well this morning. And Rhonda, have fun shopping

Trisha~you're not far away at all(relatively speaking)! What's your favorite game? I usually stick to slots, which I only ever play when we have company visiting.

Kristen~good luck in the job hunt. Hopefully it will be over soon.

Candace~I'm sorry to hear your grandma is in the hospital. I hope she gets better quickly.
RAK stands for random act of kindness. For anyone needing help with acronyms, go here Acronym list . It was extremely helpful to me when I first started posting, and still comes in handy.

Have a great day everyone!

Candace - sending some good thoughts for your grandma!!

What do you do for the Navy, if I can ask?

Hi Julie! Yes, we have room for you. welcome to the group! 5 kiddos? wow - what a wonderful family!

That leaves one spot, per Madame Chelle. It's fun to see this group fill up so fast.

PS - I should warn y'all that I'm a chronic over-user of the exclaimation point (!!). I'm just saying... lol

Kailua was beautiful BTW, and there is a LO in my gallery from there.

We have been discussing going back in August. My dad has offered up his studio condo so we would have a place to stay - yippee. Now just to book the trip. My son wants to go back to Makapuu Point and play in the surf.

Ooh, and I found out good news yesterday! I'm gonna be able to get back into the land of technology on the 27th. I finally found someone at AT&T who knew what they were doing and got signed up for High Speed Internet, so I'll be able to ditch the dial-up and go back to having wireless so I can wander around the house again

Hi Courtney! welcome to the group!!

with that..we're full - YAY!

Bonnie - glad it's over, sorry they were brutes!

Mariah - I have only been SB shopping twice since Reco closed - once down to Waxahachie, and the other when I was in Chicago. It's been good for my budget... what's your e-mail address? I'll send you an invite to the group.

Is this day crawling by, or what?

Welcome Courtney! Glad to have you here!

Bonnie - Glad your mammogram wasn't too awful. I can't say I know what that's like...yet. I hope the results come back good.

Thanks to everyone for the thoughts for my grandma. She'll be in the hospital at least one more day. She had fluid built up around her heart. Luckily, she lives next door so it's easy to take care of her.

Allie - I work in their public affairs office. I write news releases, photograph Navy ceremonies, write a newsletter that I send out to all our commands, etc. I'm a public relations student in school so this ties directly with my major. I've been there for two years now and I'll be there till I graduate in December.

Danica - Thanks for the acronym help. Beautiful name you have.

I'm out till this evening...going to the DR with my mom. Hopefully we can go by Hobby Lobby. See you ladies later!

Dani, it kinda depends on how much money I have in my purse! LOL! I will do the slots, but much rather be at the ******** tables! =)

Allie...no worries I am too!!!! =) (exclamationa)
I am just always cheery so maybe thats why...I am never yelling. =)

Mariah, glad you got your highspeed up and running...dial up really sucks! LOL!

Welcome Courtney! we have something in common! I also married my highschool sweetheart....awwww. =)
