This thread is for sharing love on new layouts. Thanks to Jeannie for hosting January.

If you don't do a lot of challenges, this is a great thread for getting your wonderful work seen and even if you do a lot of challenges...well one can never have too much love!!

It's a challenge of sorts though.... keeping up on giving love can be a real challenge!! We all JCI (Just Check(ing) In) often and try so hard to be ACU (All Caught Up) and MMS (Mark My Spot)... but let a day go by and you'll be VFB (Very Far Behind). We've also been known to toss about and create some new acronyms!!

The rules for this thread are simple: Post a newly uploaded layout, card or project, get comments and give comments on everyone's pages. No "drop and runs" please. If you get love be kind enough to give love back. There are NO CHALLENGES and NO Requirements on the TYPE of comments you leave, just be sincere but if you can't say something nice then don't say anything at all. But I'm sure you can think of something nice to say =)

Please also remember several people post here; try not to flood the post with too many layouts at once. Please be considerate and do not post more than 5-7 in any post. No limit per day.
So, think you can do it??? Then come on by and join the fun! This thread has gained a fairly regular following. We enjoy seeing new people come by to share their work and join in the fun! You can join in at any time. Just remember that it is more fun if you give love and get love too!

Here is how to put your layout photo on a thread: 1. Go to layout/picture you want to post on the thread. 2. Scroll down to where it says "Share everywhere" 3. Click the Link/Embed Tab 4. Click on the "IMG CODE (for forums and bulletin boards)" Make sure the little green dot is in front of that phrase now. 5. Select what size you want the picture to be on the thread, most of us select "large". 6. Copy and Paste the Embed Code Below: 7. Paste the code to the thread as a new post. When you paste it you will only see the code. The picture will not appear until you post or preview your reply.

While this is a laid back community of artists and crafts people sharing their work and support, it's not a place to just drop off work and not visit the galleries of others in the thread. We encourage you to enjoy all the marvelous talent and leave comments! Should you encounter a problem with another poster in this thread, please PM them directly to ask your question or resolve your issue. The hostesses are not referees and can't step in the middle for you.

Speaking of hostesses..... this is a collaborative effort. We are rotating the job of hosting the thread. Included in the opening post is the schedule of hostesses over the next couple months. If you are interested in hosting.... please PM the current month's hostess to let her know. (BTW - the current month's hostess would be the one who started the thread) Hope everyone has a wonderfully creative month and gains inspiration and encouragement from each other!


Hostesses:
Feb - Anna
March - Terry
April - Cheryl

Mel, you are right, it was Jeannie....will correct that right now. Thanks. Terry hosts March and that is what I had on my mind, I guess.
So sorry Jeannie! I certainly didn't mean to slight you in any way! Hope I am forgiven!

Well, Ladies, I don't mean to disapoint everybody, but I only finished 48 layouts this weekend at my retreat. HEHEHE! I actually helped other people alot with their cricut and digi scrappin, and did my son's Valentine's box for school, so if I would have just sat there and worked only on my albums, would have finshed much more! but, hey! it's more fun to include mingling and a V-day box!

I'll post some layouts soon, that is if the site's workin! sounds like it went down or probably had some weekend maintenance? I bet that's what happened. TTFN!

I have cleaning and babysitting to do today so probably won't get any scrapping done. We shall see!

Ha Anna..I'll never forgive you.....uh....for what???? Oh I see....lol.

Congrats on 48 layouts Dayna..I commented in the Jan thread.

Mel I love Grimm too... Have fun today.bummer about the racket!

This morning I signed up for the Feb Scrap the person before you challenge and got a message from the hostess saying she couldn't sign me up cuz I didn't do January...I didn't even remember signing up for Jan but sure enough there I was....grrr...If I don't post the challenges to favorite topics where I can keep track..I forget. Long story short...I did this layout for the Jan challenge in less than ONE HOUR this morning. That was good for me...lol..to keep up with Dayna and do 48 at a weekend crop I could not stop to sleep or eat and would have be working straight for 48 hours.
I love the new Basic Grey Kissing Booth!

Love You! By Dollscrap

Thanks everybody! I will take a picture of the Box BEFORE I let Jake play with it with RED paint. I feel like he needs to put his mark on it since it is his.

Love Jake's box, you did a wonderful job with it and I bet Jake does too!

DD is taking DGDs back to Dr today. Still running high temps and the baby has a bad cough and now a rash.

My uncle had heart surgery yersterday - he now has a new pig valve. He has to face recovery now and hopefully he will feel much better afterwards. His low blood ox had him falling way too often, maybe that will stop now.

I am going to DR this afternnon to get some meds renewed. Then back to scrapping. I am having so much fun researching and writing the write-ups for my vaca album. I did 4 last night all that is left to do is glue it all down.

My father was a computer programmer and data processer at Boeing in Wichita, Ks when I was a kiddo. He had grown up on a farm in Missouri and had wanted to travel so he and my mother made a plan that our family would see the USA. ROAD TRIP! So each year during his 2 weeks off we'd load up the car and head out. Several years one set or the other set of grandpaerents would go with us and we even repeat visited some localities so each set of grandparents could see them too. We travelled to all the western states, all the middle states, and most of the eastern states. I have not been in New England, Hawaii, or Alaska but my parents have been to all but Hawaii. As my brother and I got older my father wanted to go to Canada fishing. Dad bought a camper for the pickup and a fishing boat. He'd spend all winter researching fishing spots in Canada, looking at maps and talking with people about it. When vacation time we went and we did that for several years in a row After I married, my parents went to the new enalgnd states and then in 1996 or 97 they bought an RV and drive to Alaska. This year (2012) at the ages of 78 and 79 they took a carribean cruise with my brother and sister-in-law. Oh and on one vacation we went to Mexico.

So this starts a series of vacation LOs from childhood. Look for old photos, clean and simple/classic LOs, and LOTS of write-ups. I hope not to bore you too much.

JCI.... You ladies have all been busy whipping out the layouts! I have one that's been sitting on my desk for the past week... Just need to think of a title and take a pic of it...
I haven't had any issues with this site.... Except it's been rather slow.... I don't see any dogs..... Sometimes I've seen my sister's layouts on my home page in the gallery part, but when I go into my gallery it's just my old layouts! Or could it be this strange iPad!

Lots of great layouts ladies!

Welcome Reneeann.

Donna, I still haven't seen the dog. But this site is full of screwy things. And like Mel, I've had to stay off of this site because it is either sooooooooo slow or weird things are going on.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Hey all....I'm back!!!
Okay...first welcome to Reneeann! We do have fun here and I hope you will as well.
Jake did a great job Dayna! I love it when kids do arts & crafts. I had my 2 grandkids make their dad birthday cards last week. I bought the stickers & papers and the only thing I did for them was the paper cutter. Awesome job & he'll love it.
Donna...been into those martinis again!?! Dogs roving the site? Really???? LOL....At first I thought you were referring to the bunny on your avi...that's the night I needed a martini!
Denise...very glad to hear your uncle's surgery went well. How's he doing? How's your DH & the family?
Hi Katy...get any new snow? It's clear up here so I figure you are getting it!
Jeannie...Love the H>E>L>L> reference. How appropriate!!
Mel...is that 20 layouts & 20 cards in 1 mo? Holy cow...but what a fun challenge! Good luck!
Anna...thanks for the inspiration on the photo below. It was fun to try that!

And now...can I introduce myself.....(and my new wig)---No need to post comments...just thought it was time.
Me 2012 By Abby0317

Terry I would never know that is a wig. Lovely photo...love the close up...you should use it as your avi.

Welcome Reneeann.

I love Jakes box. Mom didn't help at all right?? We still have stuff around here that the kids created. You will come to treasure that even more.

I was just wondering what product or embelly do you ladies use more than others to where it is almost an obsession. Besides the obvious flowers and bling my addiction seems to be doilies..I am working on a heritage layout right now and a doily made its way onto the page..so I started counting how many layouts I've done with doilies...and I stopped counting at 32...that's over 2 years, but still. I'm not comfortable if I can't put at least one of those things on a layout.

Moving on to 1960. I trolled the info from Wikipedia and the drawings as well. They are in the Public Domain so its not copyright infringement. If you can zoom in on the photo you can see my cute little skirt set my mom made me. I was 4 and my brother was 7.

Jeannie, my usual style is not the frilly LO full of embellishments. I do tend to use a lot of cardstock and something cut with my silhouette. I love flowers and lace and pretties its just that I want to scrap in a "flat" manner in the hope that things hold up longer. It may not matter but that is my hope. Sometimes I give in to my urge to add lots of dimention and that makes me happy.

Love the photos Terry, you are beautiful!! and I deffinately would not have guessed that you are wearing a wig.

I'm acu finally...awesome work everyone! I applaud you Mel for the effort of doing 20/20! It more than I could commit to!

Jeannie...I love bling and hard to do a LO without it but I think the one thing I do more than anything (and it's time consuming) is to matt or double matt all my photos. I'd love to put a butterfly or 3 on all my LOs too.

BB tomorrow!

Ok....now I am acu2h.

Great layouts ladies!

Terry, you got to do a lot of scrapping while you were gone. Good for you! Love your self portraits. You are such a beautiful lady and it is great to connect the face with the name too!

Jeannie, I'm by bling like you are dollies. I really have to fight the urge not to add bling somewhere. The last two layouts that I just added...their sketches did not call for bling, but I sure found places for some so I just had to add it. I have lots of dollies in various sizes in my stash, but don't use them very often. Maybe I will drag them out and start using them now.

Happy Friday everyone!

Good morning all!

Welcome back Terry! Love your photos..can't tell its a wig. It looks fantastic! I bet your grandkids were so excited to make their dad cards-sounds like fun =). No ,martinis...I swear! I am on a dog hunt now...got to get a screen shot of him lol

Jeannie-to answer your question....punches. Looking back at my layouts I use alot of my punches. And my Nesties. And my printer (for journaling and titles)Oh...alomost forgot-my black Copic. I use that on almost all my pictures. For some reason I hate when I can see white around the edges of my photos lol

Sexy card Anna!

Denise-those old family photos are priceless! I wish my parents took more pictures when us kids were growing up. Everytime I come in contact with another family member I beg for old family photos. When I go to New York in March I'm bringing a scanner so I can scan what I can =)

Hey hey to everyone else! TGIF!!

Good morning! I swear we had 1 week of winter and are now moving onto spring.

I never thought about using copics on the edges of photos...hmmm! I have used permament markers in gold or silver tho.

Have a good one...

Mel,hope your back feels better soon. We had very heavy rain again last night during the night, not thunder, lightning or wind but the rain was heavy enough to wake me up - sounded like someone was hammering on the roof! Saw on the news that your area of TX is no longer under drought, we are still here but if this keeps up maybe won't be for long. We shall see.

Mel hope your back gets better really fast.

I enjoyed reading what embellies ya'all hve to have on your layouts.
Today dd1 told me her boyfriend says my layouts are so detailed they don't fit in the albums anymore...boy is that true....I do make a flat one occasionally and I know I should make more but I cannot help myself..besides what will I do with these 10,000 flowers? He actually likes my layouts btw.
I'm gonna go work on another fat layout now.

Tonight dh and I are going out with friends for drinks and then dinner and tomorrow night we are taking my bff out to dinner for her bday and Sunday is the annual SuperBowl party at another friends place....lots of food there always..lots of people...football pools that we never win. Is anyone doing anything for Superbowl Sunday? I'm not even into football but it should be fun anyway.

In two weeks Katy is coming here for a weekend sister crop..we'll probably go to Scrapbook Territory in Berkeley...anyone wanna go there...you'd all go crazy !!!...they have EVERYTHING!

Here's another fat one with a doily.
I enlarged this little old photo of my dh's mom taken when she was 10 or so about 80 odd years ago and it turned out really clear.
I did this for the heritage challenge.

Good Morning and Happy Saturday!

Good morning!! Yuck, rainy here.

We will be watching the Super Bowl tomorrow and rooting for the PATRIOTS!!! Trying to decide what kind of snack things to fix. Hubby requested Sausage Balls and some kind of dip to go with chips. Any suggestions??

Morning!

ACUTH

Jeannie-I wanna go to Scrapbook Territory!!! And if my Lotto numbers come out tonite I'll be there!!

Hubby's working tomorrow so no Super Bowl plans-hes still bummed the Packers are out anyways

Cheryl...I don't know what kind of dips you like...but I make one my guys love with tortillia chips. Its a chili/cheese dip

I use a round pie plate dish (I don't know why I said round-I don't think they make square pie plates) Ingredients: 1 can beanless Hormel Turkey Chili, 1 eight ounce package (rectangle brick) cream cheese, 1 jar salsa and 1 eight ounce package of shredded chedder cheese

You spread the chili on the bottom of the pie plate. Then cut the cream cheese into small pieces and scatter ontop of the chili. Empty the whole jar of salsa...then cover with the chedder cheese. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes...until you see the chedder cheese all melted and gooey. It looks gross but tastes soooo good!

Off to work..have a great weekend!

Oh Donna that sounds yummy! We'll be watching but just us. Go Pats!!! And mostly we'll watch because of the commercials. Only time I want to see them!!
How's the back Mel? I hate it when the back hurts...can't get comfy...can't sleep. I have a heat pillow, a massaging pillow, and I love Therma care wraps! I use only the neck wrap on my lower back tho. Hope you're getting better!
DGD Emma had her 8th birthday yesterday and her party is today. First one where she's going to have little friends over too. Out comes the camera!
DH is in now from exercising and he's planned a full day so I need to get going!

Acu.

Not doing anything about the Superbowl tomorrow, not in to football. Hubby isn't interested either, his team isn't in it.

Woke up with a sore throat and painful sinuses. Hope its just from the rainy weather and not a cold. I had the flu shot so I should be okay on that front.

I've been enjoying working on my vacation photos. Brings back such memories.

Mel I hope your back is better and Denise hope you don't get sick.

Good morning. One and all!!

We are having gorgeous weather..hope it holds til tomorrow..that'll be great because the superbowl party is inside and outside. All your talk of delicious dips makes me want some NOW.

DH brought home 2 ink cartridgess for my personal printer and I just ran off about 20 random photos. Stupid printer cuts off the sides sometimes..grrr One was a photo of my Mom and her sis as toddlers. The original was really ruined and I tried to fix it and did as well I can without having photoshop..the photo is kind of square..the printer adjusts it to oblong or whatever and so it cut off my moms sister. I do not know how to get around that...send it somewhere to let the pros do it I guess. Anyway the pic of my mother is kinda cute so I may scrap it this week.

Sad thing I got my high school alumni quarterly and I looked at In Memory of and there was my boyfriends name from the 8th grade...He lived behind us and his bedroom faced our kitchen and when I was doing dishes at night he would signal me from his room to meet him outside and we would sit out on the fence like a couple cats...just talking..lol. Our parents had to drive us out on our dates.

OK I just thought of a silly Sillykat story. Ok so Katy is 6 years younger than me. I had a boyfriend, my first ever boyfriend when I was in the 7th grade that I had met at catechism...named Timmy. He was a cute lIttle guy...and I guess I might have described him to my folks as skinny. So the first time he came to visit 7 year old Katy answered the door and she YELLS "Nean, Timmy's here and he's not so skinny".

Nean is my nickname not a typo. Katy couldn't say Jeannie so it was Neannie and it stuck but got shortened through the years.

Don't know why I am so chatty today.

Morning ladies!

Up at 8:00 on my day off because? I love to sleep but it'll leave me less scrappy time lol

I got my packages from Joanne's and Amazon yesterday-just in time! I got 5 new sets of Nesties (yay!)and a Bo Bunny Bare Naked binder. I've been trying to figure out how to store my Nesties..I saw someone who decorated a binder and attached magnet strips....it looked so pretty. Anyone ever have one of those Naked binders? I'm trying to figure out how to wrap the paper so the edges will be covered too. Heres the binder...

Bo Bunny Press - 6x6 Bare Naked Binder - with Six Pages

Sorry to hear about your ex boyfriend Jeannie =(
What kind of editing needs to be done to that photo? If you want to email it to me I can see what I can do with it

My knee has been really killing me..more so than usual. I've been putting it off but want to be able to walk when we go to NY next month. *sighs* time to get it drained. Note to self...when going for any medical procedure-do NOT look it up on youtube lol

Ok...going to step away from the computer now...
