Good evening my scraptastic sketch junkie's! I have been away from this thread too much over the last couple weeks & now it's time to play catch-up, lol! Also going to work on setting up the thread 4 November. I am very excited to let you all know I have met a brand new sketch designer this week who I plan to spotlight next month w/a couple of her Fabulous designs! That's all I'm gonna say for now, but stay tuned for the Nov MSC thread...bbl!
I'm behind on love, but I'll get there. It's been such a busy weekend, I haven't had a chance to sit down here. As much as I loved 3 of the bonuses this month, I don't think I'm going to get to them right now. I'm keeping them in my pile, though Here's my last regular sketch - Week 4 with the twist. The strips are all scraps as is the pawprint trail.
Oh that's awful, Bev. Although not sure she would be any better off in a hotel!
I did the week two bonus, and I'm actually happy with how it turned out. I wasn't planning to do anymore from October, but I had everything ready to scrap the pic, so that's what I went with. I will try to get a photo tomorrow...I'm not arond during the daylight hours anymore, it seems. :/
dd in CT texted us--no electricity, just waiting; tried to get a hotel room, but no rooms left
We went to bed early last night in anticipation of a power cut but woke up to still see my digital clock on. I hope your dd gets the power back on soon. As far as hotel rooms are concerned, we never got any last year when we had a similar situation with the October Noreaster & power got knocked out for a week. We were lucky to have a few friends who had power. I hope your dd has some luck.
we got some backlash from Sandy too - southern Ontario here. Half of the city had no electricity, but our house did. seriously strong winds though, the kids were scared and hid with us. being at the end of the street, the wind always picks up here but last night was something fierce!
We're 600+ miles inland (Kalamazoo, MI) and are getting some of Sandy's backlash, as well. It started yesterday with just winds, it's raining now, and then it's combined with a cold front and possible to get snow today or tomorrow.

Sorry I have been MIA. Battled Bronchitis and a hip out for a couple weeks and then just spent the past 5 days battling Parvo in two puppies that we had to bury yesterday. Here's hoping next month is less eventful.
I think the storm surge & the winds were a major thing with this storm. Coupled with the fact that there was a storm front from the west & that caused something like a Nor'easter in some parts of the country. Gosh, I sound like a meterologist now. Can you tell, I have been watching too much coverage about Sandy.
Just got done watching The Voice w/DH (it's our latest guilty pleasure) & I CANNOT believe Blake Shelton picked the former Mariachi Singer Julio over the 15 year-young, beautiful & SUPER talented Pop Sensation Marissa Ann! She wiped the floor w/Julio's Justin Beiber wannabe impression w/her near perfect rendition of Lady Marmalade tonight!! My only conclusion is Blake may be strategically trying to give a few of his other artists less competition going into the live rounds next week...cuz there's NO WAY that Julio kid has a chance against any of the other artists who are left in the game @this point.
Anyhow, enough of me venting, lol. I originally came to let the Sept Anniversary players who completed all 30 sketches know that your happy-scrappy-mail is on it's way! Dropped off your packages @post office this afternoon, Yaaay!!
Thank you all again for all your fabulous work & inspiration & I hope you will enjoy the goodies I picked out especially for each of YOU!
Sorry about the posting issues ladies, but I have edited the title and I'll give you a 24 hour extension since it was my fault you couldn't post your LO's. Was just trying to remind everyone and I ended up making it worse, so sorry for the troubles but hopefully there won't be any issues today.
