Welcome to another month of this great challenge.

Hi there! And welcome to the VERY LAID BACK Challenge! Please read this entire post before you sign up. For anyone new to this challenge, here's the idea: so many of us crave all the lovin' our neighbors leave when we do challenges, but sometimes we just want to create layouts and projects that have nothing to do with challenges (and still get some love!). Well, for this challenge, you can just create pages and other projects and link them here. You can follow my weekly challenges, but it's not a requirement. Basically, anything goes!

Here's the one and only catch:
YOU HAVE TO LEAVE COMMENTS ON THE OTHER PARTICIPANTS' LAYOUTS AND PROJECTS. So, if you sign up, you are committing yourself to leaving comments as well as receiving them. To keep this from becoming an overwhelming task, I'm restricting the number of players to 35 or so.

This is not a one entry challenge. This is a month long commitment to post ALL your work and check out everyone else's. Please post projects only from this month. And please be aware that we can be REALLY CHATTY on this thread and the posts can add up really fast.

Also -- I'd love to learn everyone's first name -- if it's not in your siggy could you please tell us.

Every weekend, I'll post a new challenge.

Week 1 -- use paint on a lo or card

Week 2 -- use punches on a lo or card

Week 3 -- lo or card using NO patterned paper

Week 4 -- Bring on the bling

Week 5/week 1 of may -- sketch

Ok i think i'm caught up. welcome to the new peeps!

time to pull up my socks...one more coat to go on our bedroom walls and then i am done! its about time- i'm pretty sore after getting up and getting down...and then wayyy down, and then back up again and back down again...ugh. glad when this is over. looks great, though!!

tomorrow, i get to ride shotgun with dh while he works- i'm pretty stoked about that! it used to be a regular thing when we were dating and after we got married, but after the twinlets came, well it kind of changed. SO looking forward to that!

See Ann- promise kept! the hardest part about tomorrow is going to be getting up at 3 am...but, i'll be sitting with my feet up the entire day- maybe napping, too. and reading. and checking into my crack (sb.com). its going to be a great day!!

bbl y'all!!

WOW -- already wild here!

I woke up today (pouring -- love rain with puppies. UGH). Got them feed and settled. Did a page. Sat down at computer. No internet. Finally got it up & running. Can't find cable to upload photo's. Mind you I never move them -- so therefore someone borrowed them and god knows where they are. UGH!!

Oh well -- felt great to scrap.

Off to update the first post.

But first -- a challenge.

Use some paint on a lo

good morning. went to an outdoor festival last night (here in the Caribbean we call it a fete)loud music and thousands of people - rolled in after 3:00 a.m. So I think it's safe to say today is a sleeping day!
Enjoy your Saturday. xoxox

Hello everyone,

Well, today may be the perfect day to stay inside and scrap. Suppose to rain all day today and into tomorrow. We've gotten over 7.5 inches of rain for the month of March and it looks like April will be just as wet......sigh* Better load up on my vitamin D......BBL.

Ann- good luck on your yard sale. when is it?

Christine- dh husband would agree with you on that. which is why i get to do it...all alone! well, actually i don't mind it, except for the work part. i love the end result though!

Pookahbot- welcome!!

I am officially done painting! at least for the time being. and, unless the walls in our bedroom need a third coat. but i'm hoping not!!! the rest of my holiday is going to involve SCRAPPING! yippee!

Well, I see we've started with a bang lol and hopefully I'll add to the masses today.

I started to do some laundry a few minutes ago but the water won't come on...you see DH clean out the dryer vents the other day while cleaning the laundry room so he must have done something to the connection...oh well, scrapping instead of laundry sounds good to me!

Anna, I never play the lottery either but we did play for this one, only $5.00. Like your new avi pic!

Yay! Genie & Mel, so glad you're back.

Welcome Pam, Carol and Hevna so glad to have you back and posting already.

Ali, sounds like a relaxing day planned, enjoy!

Eileen, love the paint challenge, I was just thinking how I haven't used any paints, mists or stamping in a while.

ACU for now and off to get some scrapping done on this raining Saturday

Hello to Carol & Pam. You'll love this group (I hope).

Welcome back to Mel & Genie.

Rebecca -- OVERACHIEVER! LOL.

I got called in at the last minute to do a dog transport -- we do these relay transports. Well no good deed goes unpunished. After picking up the dogs in the pouring rain -- while sitting at a traffic light. I got rear ended. No one got hurt. The guys car was a lot worse off than mine. But seriously. i feel like I have a black cloud hovering over me the last week.

I'm going to an auction tonight. Was going to skip it but maybe it'll be fun. Sorry to be such a debbie downer!

Hi ladies -- I skipped the auction. Brendan & I got in the hot tub made some junk for dinner and now I'm enjoying an adult beverage while watching doomsday preppers. Life is good! LOL

I'll update the front page tomorrow. Don't have a pen at the moment and I'm not getting off the couch!!

Wow cannot believe how many lo's there already are. Off to catch up.

Eileen, an adult beverage sounds good to me right now. After the day (make that week?) you've had you deserve one, or two....

Was too tired to make anything for dinner - or go out. We just threw together some bean burritos with cheese, lettuce,tomatoes and sour cream and called it a night!

Off to bed.....ttyl

Hi everyone -- busy day -- gardened a little (94 degrees again with a/c on!) -- tagged for garage sale (not until June 7th Ali -- but after going through just two big cupboards I have a feeling I've got LOTS more to tag than I thought :+) -- then got the transcription done, then sorted digi kits ---

Dropping off a two pager -- it's for a journaling challenge in the gran's thread --

Acu2h!!! And my does 3 am come fast!! We we're under a heavy snowfall warning, and I was hoping it would have missed us, but no such luck. As we were leaving the shop, it began falling...at least we should expect only a couple cms rather than 15 (the original forecasted weather warning). Bbl to jci~

Here's the lo I did yesterday -- finally found my card reader. Funny thing I noticed when I uploaded it to my gallery. 4 or the last 5 lo's are some variation of blue/orange. Guess that's my new color scheme. LOL.

acu to here!! It's only the first and feel sooo far behind! lol We have been removing trees from our yard that the previous owner had just let grow...like through the fence...we've been working on it for weeks...and trying to grade out the yard on the north side of the house to park the new camper...thank God my dh is so darn handy!! lol...and we are building some raised gardens on the south side of the house so we can have some fresh veggies...
I used to have 1/4 of an acre garden at my old house and 2 summers of no garden has been hard! Cant wait to plant some things today!

Thought I would share this also..have you guys heard of Bountiful Baskets? It's a food co-op that you can order fruit and veggies from. For 15$ you get a round laundry basket full of fruit and one of veggies. They try to buy as local as possible. You can also buy organic for 10$ more and they have other add-ons you can purchase as well. Not sure if I can post the link here, but I would be happy to share in a pm if anyone is interested. If there isn't a site close to you, they will come train you to open one in your area! Anyway, it's always so fun and it feels like Christmas to me every week we get ours. LOL

JCI and have some tabs open. Can't sit around on this thread! Tena's already got us going strong! Waiting for Ann to get going

Headed to the Hunger Games with my family this afternoon. My boys have been dieing to go but we've been waiting for dh to be able to sit that long after throwing out his back.

Can't believe some of you are under heavy snow and we are sitting in the 90's! It feels like summer here (Nebraska) right now.

Welcome back, Amy! It has been awhile since I've seen layouts from you. I'm anxious to see some...you always do such a great job.

Welcome to all the newbies!

Eileen, seriously considering your idea of an adult beverage after the movie. Maybe that will take the headache away cuz nothing else seems to be doing it.

I'll update page later -- welcome to everyone. Friend of mine is having a yard sale for her doggie rescue. Trying to purge some stuff -- just shy of being a hoarder! Even sending some scrappy stuff.

Welcome back, Amy! It has been awhile since I've seen layouts from you. I'm anxious to see some...you always do such a great job.



Thanks so much. I seriously haven't scrapped a page since November. I NEED to get back. I have done some crafty stuff for parties and now need a break from that. Back to scrapping!



Speaking of which, Eileen- Do you happen to have the "back-log" of VLB challenges from oh, every month since last November (ducking tomatoes Eileen is throwing at me)? Just curious??? Don't hate me for asking.

I have tabs open and will get them caught up to here. Busy busy ladies!
Well, we closed on the house on 3/16 and moved on 3/17, with appliance deliveries & hook-ups and cable installation. Then I had my Confirmation on 3/19 and Andy & I had our marriage blessed. We had the baby's birthday party today (I made the invitations in the midst of packing to move--I think I might be nuts!). That was a lot in one month! We're more or less settled in, although hubby and I need to decide how we want to arrange his desk & my craft area. Right now, mine is all stacked up in the living room and it is sad. I've also been making curtains, since all the windows are custom-sized, and have 7 of 14 done. The ones not done, however, include the huge bay window and glass sliding door. I think we've finally got everything out of the condo and have finished the cleaning, too.
I'm really hoping to get crafty, my scrapbook pile misses me. It wants me to leave my sewing machine and play with it again.

Glad you're all moved in and getting settled Genie! It's such a great feeling to call your place your own and not paying someone else's mortgage. Congrats again! Hope you get to scrapping soon. I miss your LO's.

Glad to see you here too Amy and Mel. I miss your guys LO's as well!

I have to do some of my web admin work tomorrow morning, but then I am going to scrap. Husband's car is going into the shop and, since I have no appointments, he is taking my van so I don't have to drag the kids out of the house at 7 am tomorrow to take him to work. I told him I'd rather sleep until 9 am than be able to go anywhere. LOL

Evening all...trying to stay afloat with the mountain of scrappy goodness on here! But totally loving all the inspiration.

Welcome back to our returning VLBers and the new VLBers!

Took the plunge today and signed up for a 6 week online digital SLR camera class with Candice Stringham through Jessica Sprague's website. It starts tomorrow...so excited! I am looking to fully using the different functions of my camera not just the point and shoot part.

Hoping to upload a few layouts tonight before I head off to bed. We'll see...

Good grief! That had to be the scrappiest weekend ever for you ladies! Some of you are going to scare off the new people! LOL You know who you are I'm cu on the March thread, but I'm way behind here. My tabs are open, and I'll work on it tomorrow.

Hi Amy, Genie, and Mel!!!

So, sorry to be a downer again, but I have an update on what actually happened with my cousin, and it is way worse than I reported before. I told you that he died on the ship, but it turns out that was misinformation. They had just left port when he went to the doctor on the ship, and the doctor said he thought he should have a stint put in. So they put him ashore in Fort Lauderdale, but his wife couldn't stay with him because not only their college-aged daughter, but 2 of her friends were with them, and since they are under age, they couldn't stay on the ship without an adult. I guess they felt that this was a routine procedure, and there was no danger, and the hospital said they were just keeping him for observation, so his wife stayed on the ship with the girls - and then got the call that he had the heartattack and died. So she and their daughter were stuck on the boat until Friday, after finding out that he died on Tuesday. I can't imagine how horrible that was.

To change the subject to something more pleasant, I was in Lake Geneva today, and I found an altered art necklace that is so cool! It's made from an old typewriter key and some old broken pieces of other jewelry - super cool repurposing! I'll have to take a pic to show you.

wow Lisa that's awful.

Genie -- I keep up with you elsewhere and didn't even know how busy your month was!!

Got up early with puppies today - they are going to be kenneled for a while today so I wanted them to get in play time. Wednesday can't come fast enough!

Well car luck continues for me -- I have a truck (which was the one rear ended). I also have a little scoot around town car to try and save on gas. Driving last night with ds -- and got a blow out! Worse than the blow out is that I just had the tires put on last week! Couldn't get the lug nuts loosened. Kevin was out of town. Just started crying. Some nice guy on a bicycle stopped and changed my tire.

Seriously this is the type of guy that I would shy away from -- he was a bit scary in appearance. But what a nice guy. Goes to show -- looks can be deceiving.

Off to a tennis match -- think I'll kick some butt after this weekend.
