Good morning everyone!!!

So sorry that I forgot you Nonny as our 6th person!!!

So...the OK to expand the group for Jana and maybe Lisa if she wants in is: Me & Nonny so far.

The girl I am training isn't going to be in today...she has to go to the doctor to have some procedure done today. So, I will get to chat today, and of course, no one will be on...lol!!!

I've been wondering what happened to you Holly, because I hadn't seen you on. I know what you mean about the sleep, since we stayed in the hotel and I went to bed at 8, I can't seem to stay up late anymore. Hopefully, you will get past your tiredness!!!

How is your sleep going Cris??

OK...3 to expand...me, Cris, and Nonny

I'm sure the name of the thread will be Fairy Godmothers...but the exact wording will be up to Mandi...but we would never ever leave you guys out!!! We couldn't bear the thought of having a thread without your participation...it just wouldn't be nearly as much fun!!!

Have fun with your scrappy friends...lucky Michelle!!!

Cris...so glad you are sleeping better!!! Hopefully soon, you will get more than 6 hours per night! At least you have understanding bosses when you fall asleep!!! My bosses were understanding when I did that when I was pregnant...they never knew I did it after DS was born, but while I was pregnant...I could NOT stay awake!!!

I finished one of my current LOs last night, I will upload today, but I couldn't come up with a title, so I will be taking suggestions for that. I guess it isn't necessary to have a title on every single page...but I think it adds a lot to the theme.

Steph, what's wild is I rarely actually PUT a title on mine anymore,,,,,,,I haven't used my cricut in WEEKS,,,,,,and the last couple times I did use it, I forced myself to,,,,,,can you believe that???

partly that's because I really need a new font cart,,,and a cart with more flourishes,,,,,,I'd use it alot more if I had more carts

Mandi...you have decided to just expand the swap then? That is great!!! I'm glad you are letting them jump in!

Take you time in setting it up...you have until August! Time flies...but still...you have plenty of time...don't get yourself stressed over it!

I still use my silhouette a lot! I love putting titles on my pages...usually something cutesy or something that describes that moment.

Lisa ........the first challenge is open til the end of the month .........but since there wasn't a prize or anything just post when it is done! We would love to see it whenever you get it done!

The new challenge will have a RAK for the first 2 to post......... I WANT to do this!

Holly I used my cricut today & my scrappy friend just learned how to use it ...........but like you I need new carts I only have 2 fonts & that is not enough plus I would love some flourishes & swirls........

Steph..........I am the same way ........I don't feel done til it has a title & I love to use something clever.........Adam's Birthday is sooo boring for a title...........but yesterday I did do a page of his b day & titled it birthday party at the cottage ...........sometimes that is all there is to say! LOL

crazycricket ...........happy to have you aboard! .........would love it if you would jump into the conversation! ............also happy to have you join the new challenge!

Hey! Guess what! I just sold some of my cards! ......... a friend called up and asked if she could order some b day cards .........I told her I actually had quite a few on hand if she wanted to look .........she picked 10 on the spot! ......... and she ordered Christmas cards! ........ I didn't charge her much (she is a very good friend) but how exciting!!!!!! .......I haven't sold any cards in about 2 years!

Okay, this is the weirdest thing:

I uploaded a layout today of my son reaching up to the piano when he was just one. Since Mozart supposedly started composing at 4 I knew I'd include his name somewhere in the title as a joke.

Here's my layout:

Mozart? By Lstory

Someone commented that she had one just like it. Check it out:

The Next Mozart? By Tmgarren

Is that crazy? I got the idea to use the strips of pp and the circle design from the cover of the pp stack, and I don't remember ever seeing this layout before, but wow, the similarities.

I was reminded of the topic way upstream (maybe back to compulsive shoppers) about crediting lifts and whatnot and someone saying they'd been contacted about lifting a design they'd never seen before.

I'm wondering if I should worry even more about my sanity!

But that's just it, Cris, I don't think I ever did see the other one. What we have in common is the black cs (my new favorite background), the red title, the word Mozart, and our little boys touching the pianos, which I'm guessing is not an uncommon event in homes with pianos and little kids. I used red because ds's shirt is red. I used the pp strips because that was on the Sassafras Lass cover page. The circle design was on that, too. Pretty much the only design thing I contributed was the mask. It's kind of an amazing convergence of coincidences, I think.

the SECOND that I saw yours, before I saw the other one that you posted as comparison,,,,,,

I THOUGHT OF that exact one!!!!!!!!!! I've seen and commented on hers!!!!!!

that is too hilarious! Hey, it happens, you probably didn't see it,,, sometimes stuff like that just HAPPENS,,,,I mean Motzart is a logical leap, if you ask me, when you see a photo like that,,,,great minds think alike

I agree with Steph, and I know the girl who did that LO, and I can't imagine she's mad,,,probably amused

Motzart is a logical cute title for a photo that cute,,,,,,black and red are ABSOLUTELY common combinations, and music paper for a piano LO? think about it,,,,,,,,,,

there are more differences though than similariities,,,,,,,

just looks like so many because of the colors and the title

I have a skink in my house...I screamed when I saw it. At first, I thought it was one of DS' toys...then it moved...lol!!! DH tried to catch it, but he had it by the tail and the tail came off...so it ran under the door into the living room. DH then yelled at me for not blocking the door...I said even if I had been, when I saw it, I would've screamed and ran away!!! LOL

Anyone remember me talking about the 3 baby kittens that the mother cat had abandoned? Well...we have found 3 siblings to those and another litter of 7 babies!!! I love kittens so it doesn't bother me...but they are all wild as they have been kept away from us, so I'm trying to tame the ones I can catch. The 7 babies are still too little, just a couple of weeks old.

I really don't like reality shows where they pit the contestants against each other because they seem to bring out the worst in human behavior, but all this discussion of the hotness may make me take a look at BB. I used to be able to sit and HGTV and the Food Network all day long - those are my kind of reality shows. Now I'm strictly action/adventure TV like The Closer, Burn Notice, Leverage, In Plain Sight, etc. I'm all about the escapism!

If it had been a skunk you'd have had to move out for a month at least - ugh! We live in a densely populated suburb where the houses are on tiny lots and yet somehow seem to have all sorts of wildlife going on, including millions (okay maybe not exactly) of skunks. I can be dead asleep and if a skunk sprays near our house in the middle of the night it wakes me up. It is such a foul smell!

Hey ladies!

Steph that is aweful about the skink...did you find it?? You have a lot of animals around don't you! I love kittens, they always seem to find me. I have rescued 2, but I am highly allergic so I can't anymore

Lisa your LO is so super cute!! I love the masking you did and the circle in red is awesome!

Mandi hope it doesn't take too long to get those letters done. I hate when I have projects to do for others when I want to do my own!

All this talk about reality shows...I can't stand them myself, but the BFs mom loves them. The only reality tv I watch is TLC or HGTV LOVE LOVE LOVE those shows!! But occasionally I get stuck watching them. I just don't get the hype, maybe it's me. I have too much drama in my life as it is!

Well I am off to bed, gotta get up early to finish laundry and clean the bathroom before my friend comes into town. I wont be around this weekend, but I will be back monday! Hope you all have a great one!! I will try to pop in tomorrow morning or afternoon to say hi!

LOL...everyone just goes to sleep toooo early...lol!!! I'm just now getting ready to start scrapping!!!

BB made me MAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wanted Chema to go...I can't believe Ronnie (sp?) voted for Braden and I don't like the offbeat dude...yuck!! OK...that was my rant!!!

Yep..I have lots and lots of animals! We have 2 ducks, 8 chickens, 2 outside dogs, 1 inside puppy, 15 cats outside, and a loose skink in the house...lol!! But the skink is not my choice...it is driving me crazy not knowing where it is. I won't even walk in a room without turning on a light and I'm constantly loooking for it!! Not a typo Cris...it is a skink! lol!!! And it was in my scrappy room!!! I wouldn't stay in the house with a skunk!

I like HGTV and TLC. I watch "16 and pregnant" (on MTV I think) and "I Didn't know I was pregnant" (TLC), plus My first place and Designed to sell and Property Virgins...but I usually only watch TV when DS is awake and I can't do anything else.

I have never heard of a SKINK, lol,,,I thought she meant skunk too, and then got confused when she said her DH had it by the tail and the tail came OFF (so grateful her DH did NOT have a skunk by the tail!!!)

are skinks like the little lizards we have here in FL???

LOL Michelle...considering I was about the only one talking...you are too funny!!!

Well...I'm not sure if the skink found his way back out of the house or if he is still in here. I haven't seen him again, but he could just be hiding somewhere!

Gotta go get ready for work in a few, hope you all have a great day today! Any plans???

DD usually can't stay up late enough to scrap with me. LOL...she gets frustrated, but until DS gets older and lets us work, it just won't happen very often. Thanks for the love on the pages!

LOL...is he a momma's boy??? Seems like boys almost always need mommy to make it all better and I am glad that you like his friends...that makes it even better!!!

You have a great day too!

A skink really isn't scary...DH picks them up anytime he can catch them! It's just gross and freaky to have it in your house!!! They are sooooo fast!!!

Yes, Cris, Still training and it sucks! It is soooo hard to train someone when you know your job like the back of your hand and the person you are training has to, of course, learn all of it! I'm sure she will get it, I mean, it's only been 3 days...but it sure can get frustrating sometimes!!!

Have a great day at work yourself! Hope it goes fast

Hi!!!

Still have company, EXHAUSTED beyond believe, but everyone is having a wonderful time. The kids have gotten to know their cousins really well and seem to be having a good time. My two are still asleep. They have been up until after 11:00 every night and they NEVER, EVER are up that late. I think they will sleep for the entire next week!

Went to the Omaha Zoo on Wed. it was totally worth the drive. I have hundreds of great picture to scrap about this whole week. Can't wait to get started.

Michele, congrats on your cards!! That has to be a wonderful feeling to sell something you made.

I don't know how much time I have to get caught up on luv before everyone is up so I better get going. I'm so far behind!!!!!! LOL

hmmmmmmmm I have a large dining room table, that I am going to move the Cricut and trimmer off of (putting them on the Island in the kitchen 5 feet away), so we can each have half,,,,,,,,,,that's alot of space, but if I was having a third, I'd need more tables set up in the living room, lol,,,,,

oh yea I think you have enough room! .........I just know that being used to having a whole table to myself made sharing hard!.........my kitchen table is nowhere near the size of a diningroom table!............ I know you will have a great time!

the table seats 8 pretty easily, and I personally only use half of it, the other half contains my cricut, trimmer, and other supplies I push over there,,,,,,,,so if I remove that stuff, we should have plenty of room

Wow, I leave for a little while and lots of pages have been added to this link! lol
I am at work so don't really have time to hang around but thought I would steal a minute since it is slow an dthe boss is on vacation!
Holly I am with you-I haven't scrapped with anyone but my dd who has since given up scrapping but has PROMISED to do a vacation album with me. catch is we have to do it before she goes away to school in August! Plus, with my boss gone, I have to work extra hours. I am guessing she will do a few pages w/me but that will be all we have time for-there is so much to do to get them all ready for school!

Yeah, I am not sure how I would do scrapping with someone else. When I scrap wiath my dd, we work together and feed off of each others ideas. I dont' know if I was scrapping w/someone else if i would be distracted by what they were doing and not be able to get my own stuff done or if the companionship would be enough to get the creative juices going. Someday I will find out! I was asked to a crop at the church but declined since i have never even been to one let alone hosted one!

I would love scrapping with another adult. I like to see DD create, but with her just being 11, it's harder to get her opinion on things!

I have missed you both, Shawn and Kim!!! I can't wait til you guys are back home without company so you can chat more!!!

I don't know about the skink. I haven't seen it since DH pulled its tail off..lol...maybe it left, maybe it's hiding in my bed...lol!!!

my daughter is 17 but we haven't scrapped together for about 2 years. She is great to scrap with though-she is very creative. I wish she would do it with me more-I quit scrapping for awhile when she stopped, it just wasn't as much fun. I finally gave up on her and started back up scrapping on my own.

So when I think of skinks, I think of a pretty good sized lizard-how big is the one in your bed-I mean house?

It would be great to have a friend to scrap with, but I wouldn't ever quit scrapping...lol!!! I am always wanting other's opinions on what looks good and what doesn't, so I know I would love a friend to scrap with!!!

LOL....I sure hope it isn't either Michelle!

I love my scrappy friends! ........... having another opinion is great! .......... I hate to scrap alone .........I do it but would much rather not .........DD gets in a mood & we have scrap marathons ..........then I can't get her to scrap for love or money .......... like now ......... even when her bff comes over & scraps with me .........

Michelle, I'm right behind you going through the gallery (just went through 11 pages - whew!), and I just saw in my activity stream that you added those templates to your wishlist - I put them into my shopping cart right after I saw that layout! Since they're offering $5 off I took it as a sign to go straight to cart and bypass the wishlist. That layout was pretty impressive - cs, picture, and doodling and nothing else.
