Only Viv answered me the other day. I asked everyone which is their dominant hand, right or left?



So sorry Marlene, I did see that and 4got to reply. I am absolutely dominant right handed which really surprises me because my mum and nan were both left handed. When it comes to Scrapping I must admit I'm glad because when we go to classes they demonstrate everything right handed it seems and Gaelene who is left handed as I'm sure she'll tell you now, has to stop and think and turn things around.

Even if it sounds like I'm bragging, I'm going to say it anyway. I am a pretty good cook. It makes it hard to eat a bad cook's stuff. Anyone else that way?




Mmmm can imagine you and Viv together Marlene, you could cook us up a storm thats for sure.

All of you Cricut owners! Viv we know you are close, just a few more days. I challenge you to cut letters out of the ugliest paper you have, it is a great way to use that stuff up.





I sure have some very old and very ugly paper, so I can do that. Funnny when we buy paper we love it, then it gets put away in the stash to be quickly forgotten and then it becomes ugly..funny that...my girls were saying the other day when I said I want the new 'Bittersweet' BG range, that I have far too much paper, I just laughed, told them I could never have too much, now I can tell them I collect it so it can grow old and 'ugly'.

I don`t like onion but if its well cooked I love it,sometimes hurt my stomach I`ve gastritis.
Today we`ll go to the cinema and then to a sushi bar sounds good!!!



Sounds good Luzma, I'm not a real lover of Sushi but only because I can't stand seaweed, if we do go and have it I pick all that off and eat the inside filling.

I'm sure I'll catch up to this but Marlene is very right. It's one of the reasons I don't like to go out to eat except for certain things that I don't make at home.

My mother is a really great cook and she's even harder to please at restaurants.

I also love feeding others. I kinda think of it as loving on others to feed them so the food must always not only taste good but look good. That's just me.

Have you read anything about the aspertame, Yvonne? I wonder if that can be part of why you are so sick so often. It is totally possible.



Just what I was thinking. Docs don't think to ask about this but with the rise in "mystery" illnesses since the release of these products into the market has me very suspicious. I know too many women in particular, since men don't get hooked on diet drinks like women do, going through a battery of tests and nothing is showing up as the cause of their problems. There has to be link. Many are being told it's all in their heads and to see a shrink.

Gee I've just got back from taking a peek at the wedding Erin was in and expected heaps of pages to catch up on. Only 1, where is everyone?

Viv those pages are looking great, well done in getting so many done, mind you it obviously helps to have your internet down, must have driven you crazy.



Only a "little" bit. I kept wondering what I was missing and how much I'd have to catch up on. But I got alot of other stuff done.

LP and UP are Michigan things. If you look at our state we have a Lower Peninsula (LP) and the Upper Peninsula (UP). Make sense?

Hey ladies! I've read everything you've written and have looked at the amazing layouts, but I just don't have the energy to catch up right now. I'm not feeling so good today. I've already taken 1 nap and Noah is being a little stink pot. He is currently sitting in his high chair whining because he doesn't want to eat the food on the tray.

I liked Archiver's and wish it was closer to me!



Gee you still feeling yucky Leesa, must be getting close to getting better, fingers crossed for you that it won't be long now....must be a girl to be giving you so much trouble.




I sure hope its a girl! hehe Yeah, I'm hoping to start feeling better soon. It has been since Thanksgiving that I've been sick.

Yep they are cute aren't they. Shannon gave me the site and she has created a monster I think, I love them, and because I tend to ramble on a bit as if I'm talking on a phone, I find they help me cut things down a bit...well,just a little bit anyway.

http://bestsmileys.com/pageindex.htm

That is the site, and you just select the category you want, then the smilie you want and highlight it and paste in here.

Easy, you can be as funny or cute as you like, sometimes we are 'naughty' on here...

Hi Ladies, I was talking to Lesley on the phone last night and she said I was invited to join the Circle of Friends group. Thank you so much for the invite, I'd love to join, it sounds like a great group.

I love the idea of having friends on the other side of the world and look forward to having my LO critiqued.

We're in the process of painting our house at the moment, so things are a bit of a mess. I haven't had a chance to scrap for weeks and I'll have to pack up my scraproom in the next few days so we can paint it too. I think I'll use this as a chance to tidy up a lot of my stash and maybe even get a bit more organised!!

I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone.
I have to go and get our bedroom back into some sort of order as it was painted today.

Bye for now






Hello! Sounds like lots of changes for you there. Don't forget to take before, during and after pix.

Hi Lesley - how was the wedding?

Viv - love the new baby books. It is so cool how you can do two at once. I'm such a fuddy duddy, I have to go from beginning to end and work so slowly. Although the project I am working on right now I'm starting on the last page.



By doing these kits which have about the same things in them, I don't have to come back later and start from scratch for the 2nd album. With only digital images I won't have exact measurements and such. By doing both at the same time, I can get things lined up so much better for when I'm ready to complete the girls album.

Plus storing the album will take way less room than the box with all the pieces in it.

Good Morning ladies, only just eaten breakfast and its 9.40am, late for me. Have the girls/boys here so just sitting around chatting.

Figure if we say weight ourselves on Sunday our own times, then keep our own track of that. Then every Sunday we put up whether we have lost or put on and how much...along the way we can add helpful hints on how to get through situations, and offer recipes (low cal of course but that doesn't mean nasty).



I am so in on this! Especially after Ariel saw my butt yesterday and told me I needed to go on a diet. I told her that only J sees it and she comes back with, "Yeah, he has to look at THAT EVERY night." I almost strangled her!



Yeah, THAT child needs a bit of strangling.

I must remember to weigh myself first thing tomorrow.

Always Exploring By Slywalker


this was my first LO playing with my new Cricut Carts. Mostly the Font Carts, just to see how they came out and changing sizes etc, not 100% happy but learnt a lot.



I love the use of the negatives for "life's little...moments." Great color mix. Cute embellies. Cute page!

I hate when certain letters don't line up. I've already read your previews critiques about the P and Y in Murphy. You either have to make it all caps or use a smaller size for those two letters if you use them on the bottom like this.

These are the pages I got done yesterday:


Baby Albums 14&15


Baby Albums 16&17

Still need to do the last 3 pages for each of these albums. They'll be a birthday themed 2-pager and closing page.

So check this out: J decide he was bored out of his mind and he would drive me anywhere so we went to the biggest candy store in Michigan. On the way there, I noticed we were going by Novi and I just happened to have my Archiver's Coupons ... So on the way back from the candy store, we tried to find Archiver's and while we were lost, J got a speeding ticket! $125 later... we found Archiver's. So I told him I'd be quick and he told me that if he was going to get a ticket for trying to find the scrapbook store that I had better shop my butt off! Well, um ok. Needless to say, Archiver's was not the same w/o my ladies and I felt incredibly bad about his ticket so we didn't stay long. I only spent $15 (we spent $35 at the candy store!)



Oh, no to the speeding ticket. The big question is "can you NOW find ARchivers" next time you go there?

Leesa, sorry you're not feeling well. A cranky kid doesn't help either. Sketch a lay out, take your mind off things.

My dh committed us to go to dinner at his brother's. They cook without onions or spices. I practically put onions on ice cream! I don't eat them raw but I love them any other way and miss them when they're not included.

See ya Monday Shannon.



That sounds so bland. That's as bad as yucky food. I'd take a mini-shaker of garlic powder, onion powder and salt.

Forgot to say, that's great news, a little earlier than you expected it isn't it? I'm sure you are going to create great things and absolutely love it. My next big expectation is to get the Design Studio once I've made absolutely sure it is compatible with Apple Macs.

Hey Leesa, are you feeling better now?

I've been for a walk and then came back to watch the cricket on Telly, (Australia is playing South Africa), should be scrapping I suppose but plan to do a bit of that tomorrow while Erin is packing.

Are we getting a new pm Leesa?

Have you used your Cricut much Leesa?

Yes, Lesley, I am feeling better. I am actually playing a board game with DH and checking in here a little bit.

I'll start a new PM in a bit.

I've been unpacking today like a mad woman. For the past few days, I've been sitting around on my bum watching TV. It's been very relaxing, but I'm pretty sure my mom wants my stuff out of her living room and into my room. So, I worked like nuts today. Everything is coming together very nicely. I've found very creative ways to store toys, clothes, whatever with the space I have. I've always said I should be one of those professional organizers for other people. I love doing that.

I checked in with my first set of classes today, and I am in for a TON of work. Only one course is worth credit this time, and it's only for 8 weeks. So, you can imagine the work load I have from that one. If I remember right, I have 5 assignments due by next Saturday.

The other 2 classes are module based, and I can complete those at my own pace, within 2 weeks. It's going to be so much work!

So I went into Einstein's this morning, and the cop was there with 2 other cops. I asked the manager (her name is Wendy) if those cops come in often. She said they are in there all the time. I told her which one I thought was cute, and she told me she thought he was single. But, she also said that she can picture him as the stereotypical abuser type. She said he is very nice to them, but he just has a rough way about him. ********. Anyway, she said she would "do some digging" for me. WOOT! If I can find out his name, I can find out just about anything I want to know, as you all know!

OK, so for our diet challenge, are we going to say our weight each week? Do we start a PM so people outside our thread can't see it? Anything is fine with me, just wanted to know what you all thought.

I weighed in this morning at my meeting, and I was up 1 pound. I was so shocked because I thought for sure I would be up 2-3 pounds. I was so excited! I'm going to do my best to get back on track starting tomorrow. I want to look HOT for summer!

We're just tracking up or down or "it's the same" thing. You can post your weight but do you really expect us to remember your weight from the previous week? I'll be doing good to remember mine.

I used to be in the habit of weighing myself every morning. Made myself stop.

I have an all day crop tomorrow and I plan on working on recipe cards. Just easier for me to haul at this point.

I'll catch up as I can.

Wow I've just read through the threads since I joined last night and it's great to see how much interaction you ladies have!! Thanks heaps for the lovely PMs.

Not sure how to keep up the conversation when I'm on a different timezone, so I made notes of some of the things you've been talking about and thought I'd try and answer them in one post (hope it's not too long!!)

Marlene - you asked what colour my scraproom will be. I've changed the curtains in the room to pink ones that were previously in our bedroom. The walls will be changed from a light cream to a colour called Sago, it's a bit darker and not so creamy. It's a big job painting the house. I'm really loving the new look but it's a lot of hard work.

Luzma - hi friend, lovely to see your on this group. Love your new LOs. You asked about our trip, we had a lovely time in Perth and I did some serious shopping in their scrapshops - they have some really good ones. I haven't had a chance to do any LO yet but hopefully will soon.

Shannon - had to laugh at your trip to the Candy Store!! My dh is great at driving me to scrapshops but luckily we haven't had a ticket, ouch!!

Marlene - I'm a lefty!! I can do somethings right handed like eating but most things to do with writing I do lefthanded.

Hi Lesley - hope you have a lovely dinner tonight. The weather has been great today, so enjoy a nice night out with the whole family before Erin & Jarrod go back on Tuesday.

Vivian - Great idea of the before, during and after pics of our new colour scheme. We have some of the before and I must take some of the during and after - sounds like a theme for a LO!!

I think the name of the software which you can use to cut fonts on the cricut is called "Sure cuts a Lot". I did read somewhere that using it makes you Cricut waranty invalid, but I have no idea how they would know, but might be worthing checking out first.

Please excuse the window in the background behind the Transparency, didn't know just how to take a pic of this one to best display. It is Erin's 2008 Xmas card, so am putting in the Xmas Album to keep as this is the last one that will have just the 2 or them in it ..lol..yea.
