Hi and welcome to our thread! Everyone is welcome but we thought we'd start a new group about something that we have in common, our tots, and the fact that we love scrappin our tots!!

Scrappin our Tots LOGO

This thread is for all the parents out there who love to scrap their tots and is a place where we can share our tot experiences with ... from the big events to the small day to day moments. We can get advice from each other, share stories and we will support one another. We hope to be inspired by other member's designs and ideas (i.e. milestones, birthdays, day trips, first dentist, first words, first day of school etc)

So if you have a tot, are planning on having a tot or if you just like tots, come in and join us. Any scrapping style welcome: paper or digital, beginner or expert, two page scrapper or one page scrapper!

We also understand that not every page we scrap about will be about our little ones so feel free to post any other layout, card or project you have to share! The only requirement of this group is that we spread the love (i.e. comment on all projects posted). We also would like you to be an active participant (i.e. check in on a regular basis)

We hope this thread will help inspire you to get scrapping those tot pages!

Please note that in order to keep the group manageable and for us to get to know one another, we are going to close it at 14 members.

When joining, please give us a little info about yourself.. (Name How many kiddies you have etc. Anything you would like to share with us) We would love to get to know you!!

Thanks

To all considering joining our fun group, we can be very VERY active.. There are days we have 1-2 pages of chat, and other days we have 10 + of chat!!!!

Hey gals and guys, I'm Albert, Mandi's husband. I got into a little scrapping last year but with my job as a library assistant, haven't had time to do much of it. However, I'm getting back into it. Need to let the creative juices flow

Count me in. The only pages I really do are about my kids.

Two of them, Austin who is 4 and Celia who is 2.

And, shock of all shocks, I discovered that I am pregnant with my third a few weeks ago. Completely unplanned and a little difficult to wrap our heads around, quite frankly, because we were so done and actively preventing. So I guess I am now a statistic!

If I have an evening where I am not feeling wildly nauseous, I will get a page done soon!

I am worried about a third via an "accident" but David(dh) is not so sure about getting the old tubers snipped or whatever it is they do down there. I'm thinking he's worried about if he has a future wife who wants kids. How does one convince her husband to get the job done?

What? A future wife?!

He can reverse it! I had friends that did that ... they actually asked that money be given for their wedding so they could reverse it and it worked. They have 2 kids. So if the future wife wants it, she can pay for it

How would you girls & guys feel about doing a little challenge.. nothing to big. You don't have to do it.. but I figured it would be a good start to getting this group inspired and motivated!


It can be paper, or digi, which ever you prefer

1. Use the color green (any shades of green is fine)
2. Put the word "Lucky" somewhere on the Layout (It can be in journaling or titling.)

Have it uploaded and posted by March 10


Also, if anyone has ideas for challenges.. please share We will get a little schedule going for challenges.. maybe once a week or every other week.

I heartily concur! If you think you are done, have him get the old snip snip. And don't rely on the sponge as bc, that's what failed me!

Only reason dh and I didn't do anything more permanent is that there was the small chance that we'd want a third. Later. Like when I was closer to 40. NOT NOW!

I am SO nauseated today, I can barely stand it. There is no "nauseous/puking" smilie or I'd use it right now.

You had me thinking for a minute!! LOL

My weight loss had came to a complete stop around Christmas as well.. I had gained about 15lbs back between the end of Oct and Jan 1st. I lost about 5lbs and then stopped.. I started up again 2 days ago.. so I am hoping to get moving again!! LOL

Mandi, I think I'm going to have to take a pass on the 1st challenge ... I'm sorry ... but I have another deadline due for the 10th of March. I made DT for a paper kit company and that's the deadline for getting our new layouts, bios, etc to them.

If I can do it, I will do it ... just not promising anything at this point but I like challenges!!

Speaking of which, I owe you something from the pixies challenge that you won - go in my gallery and have a peek - let me know if you like an embellie or two. I'll email them.

I'm sorry your daughter's not feeling well. I swear I'm going to move furniture into our Doctor's office. We were just there last week, and ended up back there today. Another upper respiratory infection for our former preemie. She stays sick!

Hugs! I hope she feels better soon.

I know how you guys feel ... Abigail has been sick pretty much non-stop since Christmas. She had the flu at Christmas, had the flu again in January ... three weeks ago she had an ear infection ... 2 weeks ago she still had the ear infection, pink eye and a cold and this week she had pink eye again!

Now I'm suffering!! sigh!
I'm watching the Biggest Loser though ... I'm addicted to it.

I just did a 12x12 layout of me ... for my gallery at Just Cre8. Not quite sure I like it, I always feel that way about paper. I'll post in the morning! :

I've only scrapped 8x8 once and it was because I was going a hybrid and needed to print at home ... I've never really thought to scrap other sizes although Mandi's 6x12s always interest me!

I like 12x12s too! I just can't get enough stuff on smaller! I think you just get into a comfort zone. Just got back from grocery shopping, my friend is coming over for lunch and I had nothing to make. Anyway, we just bought a van for 500 bucks the other day. What a deal. The guy was asking 700, I offered 500 and it runs pretty well. We needed an extra vehicle for David to go and do side jobs in, he will have it paid off with his first job, gotta love that. We have decided that we are probably only going to buy ******** boxes from now on and just drive them till their death. Our main car is a Volvo and it is too expensive to work on, we're sick of it. Anyway, I don't care at all what the car I drive looks like so it will work out great. The van is a 1996 Astro and it is in really good shape considering it is a dinosaur. Well I should go hang out with Ella now, she's just watching tv, happily. I think she could watch it all day if I let her, only 2 and a half and turns into a zombie as soon as it's on.

Oh and just a side note... David saw my avatar last night and informed me that I look really weird, possibly a little bit deformed he went as far as saying and has insisted that I change it. What a weirdo, why does he even care? Anyway, I thought it was pretty funny. So I will change it. I don't have many good ones to choose from though.

So then get your butt in gear and start scrapping other sizes.. I think your other sized LOS would look awesome!

  • peenut_23 Said:
I've only scrapped 8x8 once and it was because I was going a hybrid and needed to print at home ... I've never really thought to scrap other sizes although Mandi's 6x12s always interest me!






I like my 12x12s!

I like 12x12s too! I just can't get enough stuff on smaller! I think you just get into a comfort zone. Just got back from grocery shopping, my friend is coming over for lunch and I had nothing to make. Anyway, we just bought a van for 500 bucks the other day. What a deal. The guy was asking 700, I offered 500 and it runs pretty well. We needed an extra vehicle for David to go and do side jobs in, he will have it paid off with his first job, gotta love that. We have decided that we are probably only going to buy ******** boxes from now on and just drive them till their death. Our main car is a Volvo and it is too expensive to work on, we're sick of it. Anyway, I don't care at all what the car I drive looks like so it will work out great. The van is a 1996 Astro and it is in really good shape considering it is a dinosaur. Well I should go hang out with Ella now, she's just watching tv, happily. I think she could watch it all day if I let her, only 2 and a half and turns into a zombie as soon as it's on.



My vehicle is about to fall apart but I keep driving it ..
And Abba would watch television non-stop if we let her. Okay, sometimes I do!

I have to scrap 12X12. I just like how much I can do with that size. I did an 8X8 album for my sister once and it felt so limiting.

I can't guarantee I will do the challenge, it all depends if I have an evening where I feel well enough (and can stay awake long enough - oh the joys of the 1st trimester!) to scrap.

March 10th is my birthday, though so I will consider it a present to see all the lo's everyone else does!

Sorry about all the sickies. My kids have had the usual daycare colds but this winter hasn't been as bad as last year. Sickness-wise anyway, but the weather has been ROTTEN!

So, Jill, when ARE you going to have a 2nd kiddo?

Ok.. Well I need your girls help with one thing.. and thoughts/prayers.. what ever you do..

The thoughts.. My little brother (who is 11)has now been seeing a neurologist for almost a year due to severe migraine headaches and a lump they had found behind his ear on his head.. He was on Indural for a while.. once his headaches stopped for a few months, they took him off.. Well his headaches have been coming back lately, and he has a neurologist appointment today to see what they are doing.. Please just keep good thoughts going his way that everything comes out ok at this visit!!


The second thing.. I have no clue what to pack for my two tots for the trip.. We are flying out to PA to see my mom/family for 9 days.. I never traveled this far away from "home" for this far, with 2 kids LOL What are your suggestions on packing for them?

Wow Mandi, I am impressed ... I don't think I recall you scrappin more than a 2 photo page!

Hi Debi! Welcome!

I am *hoping* to overcome my scrappers block. For now ... omg, my dd just crashed into a glass door ... apparently she is ok, I think (dh is with her) .. anyway, have to go outside - my muffler fell off my truck on the way home - it's seriously falling apart! Then I'm off to the gym. Will come back home and do a layout for one of the digi DTs ... I'm tired just thinking of it.

I think I'm calling in sick tomorrow - I've been battling this cold for WAY too long and it's just wiping me out!

oh boi .... so dh just checked my car. He came back in and asked me how long I had driven it for - with a smirk on his face. It was ONLY just home from work ... annnyway, I apparently ground the pipe completely down. The vehicle is a hunk of junk!

So, he is going to tape it up but basically I have no muffler ... I asked him if it was really that loud and he roars and says "You have a race car!".

I am honestly going to drive it as long as I can!!
It's a 99 Rav 4 ... but I JUST put $1,000 into it in Jan so I really want it to last ... it's kind of embarrassing though!

Thanks for the thoughts Deb!

My mom did call me a short while ago. My little brother is back on the Indural they also upped his dosage of Tofranil (no he is not depressed) The Indural causes him to have mood swings, and the Tofranil is counteracting that. My poor little Boo boo bear (Yes.. thats my nickname for him)


OH.. Deb~ When you get a minute would you posts your kiddies names with their ages so I can add them to our group list

Horse and carriage ...

Actually my dh fixed it with tape ... yeah, that silver tape ... and it's still loud and he said he'd probably have to tape it every 2 weeks ... oh gosh ... ah well, this is turning out to be fun - how long until it falls apart, hah.

Good luck with the packing Mandi! Hey, I know! Use space bags and pack everything lol!

I'm laughing that your DH doesn't know yet. I'm sorry that you are sick, and I am determined to drive my van until the wheels fall off. I love it. DH keeps talking about trading it in. I don't see the point. It runs well. I don't need a new car! You should try scrapping different sizes! I scrap 8x8 off and on. I want to try 6x12.

I am hoping that he feels better with his new medicine. I am terrible at packing. I wish I could help, but I tend to not pack enough, and end up having to find a Walmart to shop at wherever we end up.
