A crop in Carrollton??? Nope-wish I was-I'm going to meet dkscrapper and nansan in Tyler on the 28th for a crop weekend though. We have an opening if anyone is interested!




The crop is on Saturday. I think the gal doing it is planning on doing it monthly if your interested at all. This is the first one, and the first crop I've gone to in about 4 years! 6ta is the girl's screen name that's running it if your interested at all.




Thanks for the info! I go to Dallas about once a month and try to get with Donna every now and then so maybe this is something we could plan!

Ashley I just love going to crops with friends. I don't get near enough done (too much talking) but I love to see other people work on their projects. I am hoping to get a few things finished at the one at the end of July-Donna it will be your job to tell me to quit talking so much and work on my lo's!

We took the kids to Winter in July this morning and they got to play in the snow. I've never been so hot in the presence of snow before. It was sweltering so we didn't stay long. I was afraid the kids were overheating.

I got some good photos and the kids had fun in the snow and the bounce house. The snow cones ran out the family just before us.

Well the birthday party was a big hit!! Despite the heat and humidity and sprinkles, we managed to wear out 5 children under the age of 6 and even entertain the adults with the pull string piñata!! I've spent the afternoon scrapping while the boys play outside with daddy! Gotta order some more Picts then hopefully post pictures tomorrow!

Hi scrappy lassies!

WELCOME to the last week of July and with it a whole new set of challenges, which I am offering up for your amusement, creativity, and mojos.


As you are all aware, the national news has been all about the United States Budget talks. This week, we are going to do OUR parts to keep our scrap spending at a minimum.

Your weekly challenge is this.

Create a page using ONLY papers and products from your scrap box and excess stash. You are not permitted to spend a single dime for any product to finish this page.

The twist is this :

NOR are you permitted to OPEN any new product to complete it. If you run out of adhesive - you'll have to figure out another method for attaching items. If you run out of ink - too bad, use colored pencil or crayon or magic marker.

This is about us being frugal. Maybe the US Government will take a lesson from us and get their financial house in order as well.

Good luck, girls!


Weekly Photos : 50 points each

1. Money
2. Budget Item
3. Saving
4. Spending
5. Compromise

Monday - July 25 DAILY

As you probably know, I live in Oklahoma, and what that means is that I have been living under the worst heat dome in recorded American History. I haven't seen the thermometer below 105 since the first week of June. And there is no water - no rain, the grass is dry, the pasture is burned up, and the central part of the nation is suffering.

This is an environmental crisis of the worst proportions we've seen since the dust bowl.

Today's Challenge : I am desperate to see water - I do not care what form it takes ...swimming pools, rain, oceans, beaches...anything wet. Anything cool. Anything that reminds me that water is out there...

Scrap a layout using water for 150 points.

  • GentlewoodFarms Said:
Hi scrappy lassies!

WELCOME to the last week of July and with it a whole new set of challenges, which I am offering up for your amusement, creativity, and mojos.


As you are all aware, the national news has been all about the United States Budget talks. This week, we are going to do OUR parts to keep our scrap spending at a minimum.

Your weekly challenge is this.

Create a page using ONLY papers and products from your scrap box and excess stash. You are not permitted to spend a single dime for any product to finish this page.

The twist is this :

NOR are you permitted to OPEN any new product to complete it. If you run out of adhesive - you'll have to figure out another method for attaching items. If you run out of ink - too bad, use colored pencil or crayon or magic marker.

This is about us being frugal. Maybe the US Government will take a lesson from us and get their financial house in order as well.

Good luck, girls!


Weekly Photos : 50 points each

1. Money
2. Budget Item
3. Saving
4. Spending
5. Compromise






Pat I have TONS of paper from paper packs that I have used paper from, can I use that as my background paper, or does the entire LO have to be from "leftover" scraps and pieces?

Here's the titles the cliche finder pulled up for "Me":


Search Result:

------------------------- ------------------------- ------------------------- -----

a whole new ball game
when my ship comes in
when in Rome, do as the Romans do
welcome with open arms
ways and means
warm welcome
the time is out of joint
time to kill
time on my hands
the time of your life
the time is ripe
time and tide wait for no man
time and time again
time out of mind
from time immemorial
tarred with the same brush
strain at a gnat and swallow a camel
a stitch in time save nine
square meal
smells to heaven
smells fishy
smell a rat
slice the melon
sign of the times
separate the men from the boys
sands of time
rubs me the wrong way
red-carpet treatment
reamed him out
read something into it
put on his pants one leg at a time
when push comes to shove
prime of life
pillar of the establishment
on the spur of the moment
old as time
nothing to write home about
no flies on me
in the nick of time
neither rhyme nor reason
that's the name of the game
my name is legion
their name is legion
the more the merrier
more here than meets the eye
moment of truth
meet your Waterloo
meat and drink to me
mark time
a man among men
make ends meet
little bird told me
lame duck
kid-glove treatment
Johnny-come-lately
it'll all come out in the wash
in his element
comes to worst
hog the limelight
handsome is as handsome does
go at it with hammer and tongs
had me stumped
in the groves of Academe
a good time was had by all
good men and true
golden mean
come full circle
the game is not worth the candle
the game is worth the candle
from the sublime to the ridiculous
from time immemorial
forewarned is forearmed
for the life of me
fly in the ointment
fiddle while Rome burns
father time
far be it from me
embarrassment of riches
eating me out of house and home
easy come, easy go
give him a dose of his own medicine
distance lends enchantment
like death warmed over
dawned on me
let's cross that bridge when we come to it
until the cows come home
comes to the same thing
come to grief
come on like gangbusters
come a cropper
come up for air
come off it
come hell or high water
the chickens come home to roost
a charmed life
charity begins at home
cat's meow
came the dawn
came up smelling like roses
came up roses
by the same token
butter wouldn't melt in her mouth
bring home the bacon
the bigger they come, the harder they fall
bide your time
between you and me and bedpost
between you and me and gatepost
between you and me and lamppost
the best-laid schemes
let me bend your ear
backhanded compliment
at this point in time
armed to the teeth
and I don't mean maybe
the American way
alpha and omega
all in the same boat
be all things to all Men
all sorts and conditions of Men
all Greek to me
brains of a biology specimen
dumb as a bag of hammers
go ugly early; don't wait for closing time
looking like a lost dog in a meat house
time heals all wounds
as welcome as a van load of Jehovah's Witnesses
laughter is the best medicine
love comes around while doing things you like
life is messy
what goes around comes around
if you can't do the time, don't do the crime
after the rain comes a rainbow
truth is nothing but a feeling that something is true
when in doubt, consult your inner child if it doesn't come naturally, leave it
the more things change, the more they stay the same
it keeps me from the street
time will tell
give space to time, and time will fill space
time is a cure
zero is sometimes better than nothing
zero sum game
all good things come to those that wait
hurry when you have time, then you'll have time when you are in a hurry
poor planning on your part does not create an emergency on my part
when the work is done, I will have time for myself
most of the work is being done to counter the effects of other people’s work: when we all agree to work half as much, the total result would be the same.
there will come a day when all the work is finished or when it is too late to finish it
life is a series of disappointments, followed by death
life is not hard, it only needs some positive thinking
it is a good experience, it makes me stronger
dime a dozen
turn on a dime
stop on a dime
women: can't live with them, can't kill them
women: can't live with them, can't live without them
time is what keeps everything from happening at once
time flies
time is money
Jewish-American princess
American as apple pie
shiny as a new dime

Ladies....

I am SO sorry about being MIA.

I've been having connectivity issues for the past two days - apparently the wireless tower that routes our service was down - it LOOKS like it's back up now, but who knows for how long. But I'm going to grab the minute and post a couple of daily challenges - both for yesterday AND today.

TUESDAY July 26, DAILY

Accept my apology for 150 points. :-)

WEDNESDAY July 27, DAILY Due 24 hours from the time of this post. ;-)


The temperature today hit 115 degrees. There is not a cloud in the sky. Use sky blue and cloud white in your layout today -- 150 points.


WEEKLY CHALLENGE POINTS
400 points

THURSDAY - January 27 - DAILY

Here's something to think about and use for your inspiration today --- 150 points.

Yesterday is only a memory, and tomorrow is only a vision, but each today, well-lived, makes every yesterday a memory of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope.

Hi scrappy lassies!

WELCOME to the last week of July and with it a whole new set of challenges, which I am offering up for your amusement, creativity, and mojos.


As you are all aware, the national news has been all about the United States Budget talks. This week, we are going to do OUR parts to keep our scrap spending at a minimum.

Your weekly challenge is this.

Create a page using ONLY papers and products from your scrap box and excess stash. You are not permitted to spend a single dime for any product to finish this page.

The twist is this :

NOR are you permitted to OPEN any new product to complete it. If you run out of adhesive - you'll have to figure out another method for attaching items. If you run out of ink - too bad, use colored pencil or crayon or magic marker.

This is about us being frugal. Maybe the US Government will take a lesson from us and get their financial house in order as well.

Good luck, girls!






Pat I have TONS of paper from paper packs that I have used paper from, can I use that as my background paper, or does the entire LO have to be from "leftover" scraps and pieces?



Norma - leftover paper from packs you have already opened would count as "excess" and therefore, NOT new. Yes, you may use them.

I don't know whats got into me but I've had NO motivation to scrap! I have read about 5 books now this past week but haven't accomplished much else! I need to kick this butt in gear! I set my alarm this morning to start practicing getting up early since school will be starting way too soon! I am such a night owl that my sleep schedule gets way off in the summer!

School here starts August 22nd. We live around the corner from 5 schools so people use our street for a shortcut and it's murder to get out of my own driveway in the morning once school starts (grumble grumble). On the flip side, my electric bill will go down in the fall, so I won't totally miss summer and less traffic.
