Hi Michelle glad you're ok. I have a Purple Cows 2 in 2 trim and LOVE it, but it does take up a bit of space.

Donna - glad your arm is getting better and I didn't mind the long post.

It occurred to me that I am probably as close to Julie as I am to Mandi. Did Bonnie quit? She's in Michigan.

We have 3 in California. 2 in Virginia. 1 in George. 1 in Oklahoma. 1 in Minnesota. 1 in Wisconsin. 1 in Michigan. Is that right?

Field day was a HUGE success today at the kids' school...I've got dozens of pictures to upload to the computer, and I'm probably going to start scrapping the pics if not tonight then some time this weekend.

BTW, Jory finally saw the LO I did of him coloring Easter eggs. He saw the bling. His exact words? "Oh NO you DI-IN'T!!!!"



Lizzie high-fived me, then I showed her the LO I did for her book. She kissed Hello Kitty. What am I gonna DO with these kids????

Oh my! Things are picking up! Will leave love later!

Yay! Michelle is okay and home!!!! Glad everything is okay. Sorry about the computer. My lappy keeps acting up, I'm hoping it will last a few more months.

Glad to hear the info on the MM trimmer. That's another thing I own that is going bad.


Ria, the new avi is awesome and funny at the same time!!!! I needed a laugh!

Michelle, I am doing fine. The cleaning gets easier all the time and it's so nice to sit on something and know it's clean! Wish I could forego pt, but I know that isn't going to happen. Have to follow the doc's instructions. GRrrrr!

Way to go.

I sure missed it, well, I was scrapping but not layouts. Layouts are my love. I have one on the table done but it is to late to take a photo of it. It has now occured to me that tonight I will be uploading to shutterfly so I can order pics. I am running out of kids and grandkids pics.

I can't wait to see it, with all the help we gave you it should be a multi color layout!!!! Such a helpful bunch we are.

Gigi, you definitely need to order some more! Kids are fun to scrap!

Megan, I can't wait to see what you did with that pic!

I already started a page with the addresses I've received so far. When it is finally complete, I will send everyone a copy!

Oh, I am one of the holdouts on cell phones! I refuse to pay that much when I don't like talking on the phone anyway! I use on star's phone system in my truck if I am away from home.

Evening everyone! I am so glad that Michelle has come out of her hiding spot, now where is Tammy?
I have had a very restful day at home, being extremely lazy!
I did take my dd to the dr and they think she is having gall bladder issues, we were thinking it was the same stomach infection that my ds had 2 months ago, the dr. did test for that but is doing other tests too...we go back in a week to see the results...went shopping after and got some much needed clothes, felt bad spending the money, but I have lost some weight and all of my shorts are too big, that is a good thing!
Still no news on hubbies job, but no news is hopefully good news!
Work called today and said that I am booked for tomorrow! I am so glad that I have been super busy lately, God is answering my prayers!
My hubby made jokes about me scrapping today and I just said I am not in the mood...I was suppose to go take photos of the book but I just didn't have the energy, maybe next week before Wednesday I will go. I can't believe it but my kid's last day of school is Wednesday...they are so ready for summer and sleeping in! Me too!
Guess I am going back to being a couch potato...just wanted to say hello!

Monica, I am glad you had a restful day. Congrats on losing weight, I need to do that!!!
Hope all the tests turn out well!!! for DD.

Barbara, I really want my next car to have On Star. Now that we have a hands free law here in Ca. My device and hubby's has so much noise and sound on them it is hard to hear. Is On Star better and easier to understand the people on?

Off to do dinner. Check in later.

Monica, glad you had time off today! Sounds like you are going to need the rest for that busy schedule! I hope everything works out for your daughter. I do know many people who live without their gallbladder. I hope that helps a little! Congrats on the the weight loss! I decided today that I am going on a diet tomorrow! It's not as effective when I can't exercise but I am going to try anyway.

Michelle glad to see you've discovered the error of your ways. I'm here to answer as many questions as I can. Kimberly is also an Apple fan girl. FYI if you are intending to run DS on your Mac you WILL need a full version of Windows XP and either Parallels or VMWare Fusion to run both OS' on your machine. Macs come with Boot Camp but you have to reboot your computer to switch apps. I prefer Fusion myself.

Thanks for the info Ria! I actually got my computer up and running! I have had it is safe mode, cleaned it up and rebooted. So far, so good. I am keeping my fingers crossed. It would be nice to save some money right now!! I did have a question on which Mac you have? I just need one for school and the internet, and of course all my pictures!

That would be a question for Bling Queen!! I would guess it might need to be Card Stock instead of the thinner paper. Is this the layout that we are all looking forward to.

The closets M's is over an hour away. I'm not going back down to the trailer this week either. I super glied my trimmer, so I am hoping that it will hold out until I go back down. I'm not going to bend the arm back in!!

I am off to bed. The boys have a tournament tomorrow, so I am going to get up with them and get them out the door...then to scrappy goodness!! See you all in the morning!

Good morning, I am up bright and early making a few posters for a cheer fundraiser before I go to work! Our cheer program is working with Sonic today and tomorrow to raise money for the school, we get 50% of cash sales both days! So exciting! I got some poster board and my cricut and I have been cutting letters...just basic poster, but the girls can stand near the street and get cars to come in!

Gotta get finished and then to work, busy day ahead!!!

It was me. In my other group, we post work on the thread for comments. In the beginning I was doing it here, but since I was the only one I quit. Personally I go with the oreo approach, say something nice, then something I'd change (no one is offended if you/they don't agree with the change) and end with something nice again. Other people will pick on something being off balance or think of a little something that will improve your page. We also sometimes post what we have and ask for help finishing. It has really stepped up my style.

In this group I have learned a lot about the Cricut and what carts to get. That has been helpful as well.

Mornin' Ladies!

The boys are off and running, sunscreen in hand. Atleast they have a lake to jump into if it gets to hot!

I am paying bills and catching up on some paperwork, then I am going to start scrappin. I have missed my room so much and my E. It will be nice to spread out again!! Hopefully I will get a call around lunch about them getting a big fish! If that is the case, I will be off to the weigh in. It would be nice if they placed again today!

Have fun at the BBQ Megan! The weather here is supposed to be in the upper 90's. What are you guys going to get??

I have the basic pretty white MacBook. Souped up of course. I had it maxed out on RAM and hard drive. I have 4GB RAM and 320GB hard drive. I use mine for everything. The white MacBooks are smallish, 13" screen (measured diagonally like TVs), but I got used to it real quick. My old Gateway had a 15.4" screen. I can really tell a difference when I have my mom's 16.1" screened lappy next to my Mac, named Callie.

Michelle - so glad we found you or ... did you find us...anyway, happy nothing was wrong. Good Luck to the guys fishing today. My brother fishes in bass tournments in the lakes around here. Never won much but he sure has a good time. I have some really cute fishing paper pieceing patterns. When I get your address, I will make you some so you can see what I am talking about.

Marlene - Maybe we should get more into posting more LO's. I would value everyone's opinion very much. I am finishing one today that I hope to get posted. Tell me what you think.

Megan - Have fun at te BBQ today. It stormed here last night. 60 MPH winds, hail, thunder , lightening - you know - the same ole story. My yard is standing in water with weeds a foot high. It is too wet to mow and looks awful. It is supposed to rain more today but clear up tomorrow and first part of next week. Wish we had California weather!!!

Barbara - Glad you are doing better. I'm doing ok today. Damp weather is kind of hard on me but I just ignore it and go on with my life. I am going to pm you my info. in a little while.

Megan - Glad you got a restful day. You deserved it. Have a nice day at work today.

Gigi - Happy to hear your rug rats are both doing good. Where do they stay in the summer? Hope Jory's burned tummy is healing. As far as the stickles go - tell Jory that REAL MEN sparkle!!

Tammy - Hope we hear from you this weekend. Miss you.

I will go back and leave luv in a few minutes.
Have a great weekend everyone!!!!

Donna,I don't have rug rats. I think you meant Ria. LOL. We are a very confusing bunch. My only rat would be a very big one, hubby, who is outside spraying for bugs in a wood pile. He is too old to be down on the rug.

Donna, it stormed here last night, too. Pretty badly. That's why I'm having Internet troubles. Yet the cable TV is okay? I don't get it. Every time I've had Internet trouble, I've had no problem with my cable TV, and it's from the same company bundled into a package deal. My Internet comes and goes and I'm getting a little more than irritated with it.

Jory's burn is healing up quite nicely. It's pretty much healed now. I don't think he needs to go back to the burn unit Thursday but it's already scheduled. It'll be our last visit.

As to real men sparkling, I already told him that. We watched "Twilight" on Mother's Day, and I reminded him Edward sparkled. He rolled his eyes an said, "Oh good GOD!" I said there's a difference between Edward and *swoon* Ehhhhhhdward! *swoon* He shook his head at me an walked away. Silly boy.

Some of the little boys in my GD's 5th grade class started wearing body glitter!! I thought it was so cute but the school didn't think so. They made them wash it off. You just can't compete with a gorgeous teenaged vampire!! Edward - where are you?

Sorry I addressed your message to Gigi. I can't keep Monica and Megan straight - now it appears I have a problem with Ria and Gigi. I know Ria is the stickles queen and I think Gigi reminds me of glitter - thus the problem. Sorry - I am so weird. My brothers always told me that artists are "mentally challenged." Oh well, I had better get back in my padded room before they take me away!!!

Here goes: I love the colors that you have used and the title work is outstanding - the "not" right on the picture really adds a big punch. The colors are a nice match to the photo. Only thing I see, and this may not be the case IRL (it's so hard to tell on line) I would ink the edges with a slightly darker ink - nothing real dramatic - of the title and the cardstock. Like I say, they may stand out fine IRL. This is a fun and happy page - even if the main subject isn't having fun - love the addition of the lime green circles. I think this is my fav of yours.

Here's mine for today. I challenged myself to only use white card stock, I can't stop with the distress ink and water spray. I used Animal Kingdom for the squirrel. Paper Pups for the circle silhouettes. Home Accents for the dream cloud. Camp out for the pine trees.

That's ok, I forgot to mention Missouri, it's always risky doing a count like that without checking. Sorry Ria - I know you're there!



That's okay. Just look at the map and you'll see a cloud of glitter over the KCMO area.

PageMaps binder cover

This is for the PageMaps binder I made for my best friend. I used Jubilee for the word 'PageMaps' and the other letters are from the We R Memory Keepers Tiffany Collection.

Here's the LO I finished yesterday....I had to let the Stickles dry overnight.

Eggs for sale...CHEEP! Page 1 By BlingQueenRia

Eggs for sale...CHEEP! Page 2 By BlingQueenRia

I used Hello Kitty Font for the lettering: "Eggs" I used it in Round and Round Shadow; "for sale" I used it in just Round; and "cheep" I used it in Silhouette and Shadow Blackout. The yellow lettering-on-yellow background I inked with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink so the letters didn't blend in. I used Doodlecharms for the basket, handcutting the "grass."

I am new at this Marlene, so ignore me if you want. I love this subject and the torn edges and inking. Your journaling is beyound cute!!!! And that squirrel is to cute. I wonder if it would make the 3 dream items stand out more if you used the same brown for just the outside rings as you did the squirrel. Wonderful layout and it looks like so much work.

I am off to get ready to go to a Union dinner with hubby. He is getting a service award tonight and I am getting a free dinner. Plus an evening out with him. It is going to be nice as he has been gone so much.

Thanks Gigi. My new lo is one of those instances where it does show up better IRL, the shading inside the circles is very subtle and there is inking on the outside. That is a good suggestion about the shadow though.

No I meant Gigi. I laughed at your comment about your husband - if mine got on a rug I would have to call a neighbor to help him up. LOL

Here is one to drop off. I used Cuttin Up in Holy Cow mode for the title. The PP is Karen Foster from I dont know how many years ago. I tried two new things on this LO. The lacing and the curved pictures. Thought I would try something new.

Evening everyone, looks like a few of you have been busy today...me too, just working not creating!
Donna, call me whatever you want! I will usually answer!
Work was crazy today, I am exhausted...going to dinner with hubby and my ds, need a break from cooking and Applebee's is doing the $20 deal for 2 entrees and an appetizer, good deal huh...
I need to get busy making my cards for my next meeting which is Tuesday! Ugh, I have not had any time lately to do it!!! Guess I need to get busy, maybe tomorrow I will have the energy and time.
We had rainy weather here today...thought it would make the appts cancel at work but that was not the case, it was super busy, but next week is slower. That is a good thing cause I need to rest!!!

Michelle - great job on your first curves. If you go on Creating Keepsakes site and search for Pammy - she has some great templates that make shapes very easy.

Hi ladies! I did scrap some today but still have that tired feeling. Hopefully I will finish it tomorrow. I would seriously go to bed if dh wasn't going to be home soon. Maybe he will perk me up.

You guys can critique me too. I normally know what's wrong because I just give up and let it fly!

Will try to leave love soon!

I love this! Love how you added circles that match the pattern on the paper! Love how you did the title! I might have added dots to the stars to make them stand out a little more. But it's great the way it is right now!!

A little hard to critique something that had to start out white. You did a wonderful job with the spray and inking. The only thing I would have changed, is to not have had so much tearing. But this is so wonderful!

hi girls! we had a blast at the bbq and DH was even able to come before work!! YAY!!! the kids are both passed out- despite the fact that its almost 5. I guess ill wake them eventually...

I love the idea of people crictiqueing me- but I dont know that I know enough about anything to crictique someone else!!!

heres my dilema- I love love love all the LOs with dimetion and layers. BUT i have a very hard time doing it. Especially with multiple pictures. I really try to scrap the boys life and not just a pictures that I love, so I find most of my LO have many pics... but I really want more texture on my pages...

Gigi- your house would be perfect. I really want to use one of your carts for the title on this page too. Which is killing me to have it sitting here almost done for that many days- but oh well. I can make it!! Im bored of the fonts I have... AND it will be much quieter at your house. Despite my hubby being home- im not sure we would get much done here. lol. and you have never been to applebees???? no way! deffinatly lunch on tuesday
