Welcome to the October edition of New Layouts. Thanks to Donna for hosting September!

This thread is for sharing love on new layouts. 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:

November...Cathe
December ... Terry

Good morning! October already? You know what that means....only 84 days left til Christmas!

(ducks to get out of the way of the objects being thown at her)

So hubby was able to switch tomorrow for today. Looks like our anniversary dinner is back on

Heres Patricks finished project...whatcha think? It feels bare to me....I don't usually scrap so plain. But I didn't want to take away from the bleakness of the photos. Would ya'll add anything? His teacher didn't want the photo titles on the front-all the written stuff had to go on the back. The photos are mated and distressed...we inked the edges of the posterboard. Patrick is now a pro at inking and distressing! He had to help somewhat lol

Good morning!! I realy don't know where this year as gone.

Donna - I will not throw anything at you because I usually start my Christmas shopping in October and like to be finish up by December 1 if possible.

I am off this week and going to do some much needed deep down cleaning and decorating for fall. Of course, I will be making time for scrapping too!!

Mel--welcome back girl! Hope dh is doing fine!

Cheryl--tell Priscilla she's the cutest nerd I've ever seen!!!

I'm waiting for the carpet guy to come re-stretch the carpet so I can put the furniture back. DH did his walk across the columbia river yesterday. It was 6.2 miles & he did it in 1 hr 53 min. It was a gorgeous morning too. I walked about 1.5 mi with little abby!!

Hi everyone

I will probably get caught up in the morning. I swear my first hour or so at work is always very productive... just not work related

Right now I'm staring at wedding photos. Trying to pick the best one of me walking down the aisle, but there isn't one that stands out most out of about 5 of them.

Good morning!

Welcome back Mel!! Good to see you again

Jeannie-not sure why his teacher wanted all the text on the back. Apparently she is not a scrapper lol. Good luck with your traffic school! a pain I'm sure but better than having your insurance go up. That is THE main reason that keeps me from speeding. Insured is expensive enough down here!

Terry-kudos to your hubby for walking 6.2 miles! And for you for the 1.5

Anna-I decided to leave the project the way it is. I keep reminding myself its not a layout lol

Got some good news about my older son. He was promoted at work-they gave him his own store and made him manager! I'm so proud of him and happy that hes happy. Of course its less likely that he'll move back to Florida-but at least hes happy

Working half a day today! Then off for a nice family dinner to celebrate our 24th anniversary

have a wonderful day!

Donna - Happy Anniversary!!! Enjoy your dinner. I think the teacher wanted the focus to be on the pictures rather than journaling. I think it looks just fine and the distressing really added to it.

It's another gloomy dreary day here. I HAVE to go to the grocery store, doing laundry, and definitely putting all my fall stuff today. My bay window looks to "Spring like". lol

Morning all--
Happy Anniversary Donna! Enjoy your night out!!

Jarvae--you asked about printing digi's or not. What I do with mine is to take them to Costco where they can be printed on 12x12 sheets. But to do that they need the jpg sized to 12x12. The cost is minimal. I play with them every now & again because it's different but my heart is definitely with real paper los.

Busy day & I need to get ready for it!

Jarvae - I do not print out my digi layouts. I save them to a memory card for the frames that scroll through pics and use them that way.

Mel - We are having chili tomorrow night. It is chilly, cloudy and raining off and on here. Hard to get motivated!!

Hiya everyone.

Finally found the seeds I needed for my fall/winter garden. Now I need to get them into the ground. I have leaf lettuce, spinach, green onions, carrots, raddish, and broccoli.

Happy Anniversary, Donna! Enjoy your dinner. Sorry you son probably won;t move back. Like you said at least he is happy.

Hiya Mel, hope your DH is feeling better.

I sat down to browse the different on line traffic schools that the court sent me...but oops I left the papers in another room with the info....oh well....so I came on here instead.

Anna you asked about the card I made....not hard at all. I used a piece of Websters pages round diecut pp.....cut it in half and folded like that..when folded I laid a piece of contrasting pp behind and traced the shape and cut it out and then glued it all...punched in a couple eyelets and voila. I linked GabrielleP's card on my description of the card and she explains how she made hers on her blog.

Yay for all those who are walking. Katy is living proof of how walking and cutting back on sodium works..she's lost over 20 lobs and looks great...I was so jealous of her...he have to walk up a hill and then stairs to get to the cafeteria at the retreat and she just zipped right on up and I was huffin and puffin and whinin...but food was involved so I made it....AND she looks great too. Am I following her example....nope here I sit on my fat A$$. But kudos to Katy...and everyone else getting healthy.

And Kudos to your son too Donna..way to go.

I'm gonna stop for now...my wireless mouse is doing weird things.

I was gone most of the day. I didn't want to, but had stops at the library, Hobby Lobby and the grocery store. Rockford is big and it takes awhile to get around.

Happy scrappin.

It is really hot here today..we don't have ac..only need a total of 14 days a year usually. I'm sticky...wanna scrap but I stick to the pps.

Cathe for someone who didn't want to go I see you made it worth it....Hobby Lobby..lol...anything new for you?

When I stood up my skin stuck to the chair...Hooray for summer...in October.

How's everyone? It's pretty quiet here but I have to cu on some club work today, tomorrow I clean, and Fri my ds#1 is bringing the kids down to say goodbye. (wifey is not coming! Big shock there) We'll have a great time with them and I'll try not to cry.

Ashley--great book! Loved looking at all the pgs!!
Cheryl--enjoying your vacation? Love the LO's!!
Jeannie--I heard last night that you guys are having horrendous heat! We had 3 days close to 90 and now back to 70. But no rain yet. Scary...
Katy--great job losing the weight! Yea!!!
Mel--so sorry you lost the pear tree! I love pears...

Hiya!

Ashley, nice book you made your mom.

We have such unusually nice weather. Lows near 56 and highs in the 70s and low 80s. We are headed back toward 90 tho. I can't remember a time when we had such nice temps this early.

Terry, sorry you have to say goodbye. I know its going to be hard.

Hi Denise. It seems so strange to hear you talk of planting a garden. The gardens are done here and we are preparing for the cooler weather and frost! UGH! Today it is really nice out and I have the back door open!

I sure would enjoy having a garden right now with fresh veggies!!!

I think I have this month all caught up! ACU!

I am impressed with the ones of you that have been walking. Terry's hubby 6 1/2 miles, wow! and Terry 1.5 miles is impressive too. I know I need to walk more and get more exercise. Our treadmill is on the fritz but I could go up to the school track!

Katy it sounds like3 you are walking too.

Donna Happy 24th anniversary! Did you go to dinner or is that tonight. I am so glad your son got a promotion! That makes a mother feel good!

Hello to everyone else...I will slap myself and tell myself to stay caught up! Turn over a new leaf!

Dropping off a page and then I have to get busy!

Anna--this is our oldest son Aaron with Andrew & Lauren that will be moving. Lauren does like scrapping too but since she's in Seattle I don't get to spend the time with her. She's done 2 smash books and loves that. She's 10 and he's 12:
Here's the latest photos I took & messed around with. Haven't scrapped them yet but will soon.

Terry your grandchildren are adorable. So sorry they are moving. I guess you can skype. I can't get either dgd to scrap but the 6 yr old dgs love to.

Mel sorry you lost your pear trees.

Cheryl I should find out if the kids need new pj's. Last year theirs still fit from 2010 so I didn't buy any. They've all grown a lot this past summer.

Tish - glad to see you back in here.

Have a nice evening everyone.

Here is my attempt at a mosaic. I had a chipboard bird and thought it would be a nice big piece to try.

Good morning!

I paitently waiting for it to get light out so I can go outside and shut off the water. Apparently out water filter/softener sprouted a leak...hubby already left for work. I can't find a flashlight and can't see in the dark

Hi Tish! Welcome back! Nice to see you in here again.Just so you know...I ducked-so whatever you threw you missed!

Glad to see I'm not the only one who's started Christmas shopping Cheryl. My goal is to be done by 12/1. This way we can just enjoy December with no pressure

I didn't do any fall decorating this year either Anna. I usually at least put fall leaves on my windows. This week I'll be super busy so maybe when I get back from Cozumel

Denise-your weather sounds heavenly! I hope we have a cold winter this year. We could use a break from the heat

Terry-sorry your son is moving Its so hard to say goodbye. Those pics are awesome!

Well its starting to get light...wish me luck!

It is a beautiful morning, but it is going to get cold this pm. At least it's not snow!

I am keeping all 4 grandkids overnight and most of the day Friday. They are off from school. Parents need help. I'll be tired, but it will be worth it. Yep I'm getting pictures.

Have a great day.

Tish--you & I were on Anna's pg at the very same time...I didn't think that could happen!
Donna--leaking water???? that's never good...just ask me...I had to have a $15,000 renovation in the kitchen because of that. Guess what the ins did?!!!#@#%@#$
Anna--No apologies necessary. I do have Ms Emma and she is my scrappy buddy. OBTW...what a knock out gorgeous photo you have in your gallery! Ladies go see the wagon! Stunning!!!

Quite an interesting debate last night! Anybody watch?
Off to clean the house since company comes tomorrow.

Anna - I am not positive what is going on with dh. My gut feelling is that he may have cancer (which I have worried about for a year and couldn't get anyone to listen). I am sure today will be nothing but bloodwork and more waiting for answers. His hemoglobin two weeks ago was down to 9 (14-16 normal) and no obvivous bleeding going on. He has no energy, constantly sleeping, some days he eats well, others not, says he is not hungry or feels nauseated.

I pray for your dh Cheryl, hoping it is lot less serious than you think.

Terry, Are you going to scrap those lovely pics of the grandkids.
It was quite hot for a few days...upper 90s here and 100s inland....but it went from upper 90s to low 80s yesterday and today we are back to overcast mornings and cool temps...mild though so I will take it.

Cathe have a great time with the kids.

Hi one and all. Happy Thursday.

Speaking of baseball...lol...Go Oakland Athletics!!!! I watched them all year...they were expected/supposed to lose 100 games...just a bunch of rookies... the management had gotten rid of all their best players and was trying to put together a young team with their eye on having a great team a few years down the road...but these kids just kept playing and winning and slowly crept up in the standings and on the last day of the season won the American League West division..beating the Texas Rangers who had been in first place all year. Now THAT would make a good movie (the movie Moneyball was about the 2002 Oakland Atheletics.)

Oh my Cheryl, I do hope your DHis okay and will keep him my prayers.

Donna, you may just get your cooler winter this year. I can't believe what they have forcasted for here on Sunday and Monday.

Yeh Terry, I watched the debate last night. From my heart, I do hope my fellow Americans see that we cannot keep spending money where we don't have it and saddling our youth with an unreasonable debt.

Well, we are back from the doctor's office. The doctor said nothing just "stuck out" at him. So, he said he will run a bunch of tests to see what he can come up with. We also has scheduled a bone marrow biopsy for Wednesday afternoon. After, that we will see him again on the 22nd for results. I'm exhausted!!

Good morning!! I have been up since 6:20 when I could be sleeping in since I'm on vacation. Couldn't sleep, decided to get up and have some Almond Joy coffee and finish my book. Now, I have laundry in the washer, ribs in the crockpot, oatmeal made for dh and ready to scrap.

Good morning and TGIF!

Oh Cheryl, I do hope and pray you and your dh are not facing such a serious health problem. I truly pray that it is something very minor and that some meds can make him all well again. Praying for good news!

Terry, thanks for the photo comment. I actually like that wagon in color and bnw too. One of these days I will get it scrapped!

Donna, you all packed and ready?

Weather here is absolutely beautiful! Upper 80s, windows are up and open and to think two weeks ago we were dealing with cold temps and frost. However, the weatherman says we are in for a shock come Sunday/Monday when rain moves in and a big cold front behind and once the rain moves out we can expect a killer frost. I worked outside till dark last night cleaning out my flower beds/pots and cleaning the deck and getting most of the deck furniture and grill ready for the winter. It was just too pretty to be inside and I hate to those chores in the cold!

Hello to the rest of the gang!

Be back later to drop two off.

Good morning! Cold here but due to be 80--we are having such a prolonged summer. No rain yet!

Cheryl--I'm sure your are pretty frustrated with the "no news--more tests" stuff. But maybe that's a good sign too! Sure hope so...
Anna--I can't wait to see a LO with the wagon in it. Next year I have to design a commerative tee shirt for Kansas & I want to use sunflowers, a wagon, and an antique aeromotor wind mill pump.
I'm pretty excited about it.
Denise--I couldn't agree more...I can just imagine the fallout if I spent 1000 times more what was in my bank acct!
Donna--getting ready & packing yet?
Cathe--how was the day with the kids?

Well I need to get groceries & mop the floor. Hi to all....have a great Friday!

Anna re: your sweet comment on my Jeanne Marie layout...thank you..My mother named me Jeanne Marie after a friend and that is what she wanted me to be called...never happened...Dad always had nicknames for us that stuck and mine was Jeannie...which I prefer..and so I added the i as teen so people would stop calling me Jean...and now it is my legal name. My folks were the only ones who used Jeanne Marie and only when I was in trouble.

Good morning everyone.

I see industrious people out there...putting me to shame..I didn't get anything done yesterday except a few basic chores cuz I wanted to scrap.

Hiya everyone!

Yesterday I got some daylillies moved making room to plant some blackberry bushes in January. Need to find a spot to move some more to. Gardening takes so much time I gave it up while I was homeschooling the kids and working. Homegrown food tastes so much better and is cheaper in the long run but the time commitment is great. Problem is now my PVCs sometimes act up after I have worked so hard. Not always but I have to do it in little snatches that takes even more time. Oh well, I have time just not getting any scrappy in.

Donna, ready to sail away?

The DGDs were on their way to the gym yesterday when they saw a flight of birds migrating. Their mom overheard the older one explaining to the yonger that the the bird at the front had to take the wind and work hard but after a while it would fall back to the end of the "V" where there is no wind resistance and its a place where they can rest. The little one was looking up and nodding her head in all seriousness.

Their mom asked the older one where she learned that at. DGD relied that her Poppy had taught her about "the flight mechanics of migratory birds." Their mom mentioned it to DH and he said that it had been a long time ago, several years in fact. Kinda funny what little ones take in.
