Football is only as exciting as the last play, then it is over and on to something else...but yes I too was glad the Eagles won! I do enjoy football, especially with scrapping! It gives me something to do during all the commercials and time outs!!!

I am leaving this here quickly... because once again my youngest isn't letting me get this done... just wanted it posted before Midnight for the daily points... I used Nutella Brown!

It would have posted before Midnight ... had my computer not restarted! I will be back to edit this post and my signature with points!

I had to cover some kids faces... they aren't my kids I don't feel right posting them on the internet without permission!

I think I am using the spread sheet incorrectly... I can't figure out which side to put number of points and which to put the number of times I earned them... so I need to sit down tomorrow and make sure I am tallying points correctly... I don't want to be calculating too much OR too few.

I did update my signature with the amount I THINK I earned... but Something seems off!

~ * ~ * ~ * ~ DAILY CHALLENGE ~ * ~ * ~ * ~

FEBRUARY 6

It's NATIONAL LAME DUCK DAY!

NATIONAL LAME DUCK DAY

The term “lame duck” originated as a description of stockbrokers in 1700s England who could not pay off their debts. The name later carried over to those in business who, while known to be bankrupt, would continue to do business. In politics a lame duck is a person currently holding a political office who has either:
~ lost a re-election bid
~ chosen not to seek another term
~ been prevented from running for re-election due to a term limit
~ holds a position that has been eliminated

Prior to the ratification of the 20th Amendment to the United States Constitution, there was for Congress a 13-month delay between election day and the day the newly elected officials took office. In the case of a lame duck, this was a 13 month notice his or her job was terminating crippling their influence. Hence the ‘lame’ or injured duck.

An awful lot of people are confused as to just what is meant by a lame duck Congress. It’s like where some fellows worked for you and their work wasn’t satisfactory and you let ’em out, but after you fired ’em, you let ’em stay long enough so they could burn your house down. – Will Rogers

The same applied to the president. The 20th Amendment changed the date the newly elected president took office from March 4th to January 20th. During a lame duck session, members of Congress are no longer accountable to their constituents. It is possible for their focus to switch to more personal gain instead of acting on behalf of their constituents with an eye toward re-election. The 20th Amendment shortened this period from 13 months to 2 months.

While lame duck sessions still occur (20 such sessions have occurred since the amendment took effect in 1935), there is less time for sweeping legislation to be approved. Even so, lame duck Congresses have declared war, impeached a president, censured a senator and passed the Homeland Security Act among other actions.

It is also considered a time when the peaceful transition of power occurs. Preparations take place for the out-going president to leave office and the newly elected president to take over the role.


~ 25 points for using feathers on your project today. 50 points if you use actual DUCK ones. I may stop by the city park today and do a little feather collecting. All I have are chicken and guinea ones....

~ Have fun~

I don't know what kind of spreadsheet everyone uses, so the instructions for the one that is posted may or may not WORK in your system.

The EASIEST thing to do is to choose

FILE
and then DOWNLOAD

That way it goes into your own computer intact.

If you have a GOOGLE profile, you can - I THINK -
FILE
MAKE A COPY
and then
SAVE that copy to your own Google Drive


If you do either of those, all the information about which cells to enter your data into and what data goes in there SHOULD stay intact.

If you only copied the information from columns A-D into your spreadsheet, you need to go back and copy the entire sheet as your original master so you have all the information you need.

It's all there - what to do, what to put where, up in the five steps listed under the spreadsheet title and in the shaded boxes at the top of each point sets group.

But typically - ITEMS go into column C and TECHNIQUES into column A. For TECHNIQUES put the value of the technique, not a 1, into the shaded column A, and leave column C empty.

Let me know if this helped or just added more confusion to the mix.

And last night I created a cute little pink and brown pick-up truck from cardstock and patterned paper. ... Dailies 1, 2, and 5 all in one fell swoop.

But I have NO idea what I plan to DO with the little darling. Stay tuned.

I'm off to work for the day. Won't be home until 8p, but the library I'm working at is notorious for down time, so I should be able to be around.... Let me know if you need me, but in the mean time, try not to get into too much trouble.

Say, has anyone found a pen that works well with the Silhouette for writing?? The Silhouette pens that FIT in the holder DO NOT WORK for writing directly to s 12x12 layout!!
I had journaling that I tried to add to my bg paper but I got the first 5 letters, 9 letters from the middle section (text) and 5 letters on the last line. I must be trying to write too many words!!!!

I thought at one time I had an adapter that would fit with other pens but then maybe not!

I never kid about something as serious as feathers.\. But if you notice, there is a lot of wiggle room here ..

#1. Nothing specifies that the feathers have to be real, unless you decide to go with the 25 point bonus and use actual duck feathers. So you could use a die cut to satisfy this particular spec.

#2. Nothing says that the feathers have to be unattached. So technically, you could use an entire bird as long as the feathers are actually visible, such as a spread wing showing the wing tip feathers.

Let's see....

As I recall, there ARE some sea birds that are part of the duck family.

Yep. There are. Now, I don't know that any of these are indigenous to your area, but at least we know they exist! If you click the "more information" with each individual, you can see there are five (I think) that winter on the gulf coast. So there's a CHANCE, you see....

I think that the players in that challenge are getting progressively more sophisticated about the kinds of pairings they send. I know I've gotten a couple of sets that took me a couple of months each to figure out what to do with. ...

It's definitely a head scratcher most months, but some months it's just down right HARD.

Feb AGC Daily Photo Prompt #17 (Guilty Pleasure) By Deanna Schuler

I have many guilty pleasures... using something like cupcakes, or chocolate... ummm chocolate cupcake... I digress... However I find myself often going to the frontpage of scrapbook.com to see if I am a "featured" LO. The little jolt of excitement I get when I actually see one of my LOs is so awesome! I guess I like to know that my pages are being seen...

Yep. Kind of. It's a fits and starts sort of library - people come in, you get busy, you get caught up,
and then you have an hour of nothing to do....


It is Wednesday here so I know I have to wait until I get home to stand any chance of getting close to Wednesday there to post my Round Robin entry. It has been done for 3 days! Can you believe it I haven't had to rush home and do one to be on time!

We're still on early Tuesday evening here, so you got lots of time, girly girl. And as long as you get close - even if you post it a bit early (or late) it'll be fine. No worries on this end AT all.


Feather printed paper count?
Too many options to consider.

Don't see why it wouldn't.


Working on my nutella page - best photo ever found for this - gooey background?

I was hoping for something brown and gooey - but I haven't gone deep into my stash yet, so maybe there will be something and maybe not. I THINK I have some metallic art paste somewhere in the depths of a drawer. I'll have to see.


Truck in photo okay?

Of course. :-)

Kathy, you were taking about not being able to join the letters with your Cricut. It is possible if you use a computer with their Cricut Craft Room , that is the design area used for older models.
If you don't use a computer now with your cutting machine you would HAVE TO with a Silhouette or if you ever upgraded the Cricut. Like you said there is no need to upgrade the cricut if it works well and you could use CCR with the older models.
I never learned how to use my old Cricuts without a computer, to much trial and mostly errors so I have always designed on a computer screen. You do have to manually move your letter close together with the cricut in order to weld so they are all one piece. Now what a Cricut can not do is put a double triple or more mat layer behind titles or anything you cut. With a Silhouette it is easy to do an "offset" layer for anything!!

Anyway, just saying it might be something you would want to look into when you have some "free" time on your hands....

I got things laid out last night for my week 2 challenge post and was looking forward to working on it tonight. I am so mentally tired today though! I have a physio student who started with me today - well she started at the clinic yesterday but I don't work Mondays or Thursdays so I am sharing her with another physio. I have had students before but I had forgotten how tired it is to have someone following you all day and constantly explaining what you are doing and why and answering questions. My brain hurts and my neck is stiff so I am vegging in front of the TV, catching up here with a heating pad on my neck!

Sharon - I use the Silhouette pens in my machine for journalling - I have a set of 24 or something and I find about 15 of them work well for journalling and the others do not!

I will scan through and if I see anything I feel the need to interject a comment on I will, otherwise...
I am MMS right here and moving forward!

I agree. I think it's fun that our little challenges are inspiring us to create lovely projects that other sites want to feature. :-)

One of these days, everybody will know our names! And you KNOW that if you ever want to apply for a design team, you can use these as "published in:" on your design team resume.

There is some interesting discussion going on in the "what happened to the color challenges" thread in the challenge forums section.

Congratulations ladies!! Great layouts too!! Love them all!!

Seriously, those people are legit?
I was contacted in a PM by Rizzi in January wanting to use my Year of the Dragon layout and not knowing who what why I did not respond. I know my layouts are out there for anyone to take but well, I just didn't want to respond to someone from the Philippines with no "history" on this site. Now I know!! I could have been famous too!

~ * ~ * ~ * ~ DAILY CHALLENGE ~ * ~ * ~ * ~

FEBRUARY 8

It's NATIONAL BOY SCOUTS DAY!


Since 1910, boys across America have been doing good deeds, learning survival skills and developing moral foundations through the Boy Scout of America. The Boy Scouts of America has roots in the British Boy Scouts organization which was created in 1908 after the success of the book Scouting for Boys by Robert Baden-Powell.

On a foggy day in London an American newspaperman, William Dickson Boyce, became lost when a Boy Scout came to his assistance. With the boy’s guidance, Boyce arrived at his destination. When Boyce offered payment for the assistance, the Boy Scout refused explaining it was a good deed. Boyce was inspired to organize similar youth groups into one organization. On February 8, 1910, Boyce filed papers of incorporation, and the Boy Scouts of America was born.


Boy Scouts have had a profound impact on the United States. Many presidents and other dignitaries have been Boy Scouts. A total of 181 Astronauts have also been a part of the Boy Scout program.


~ Create a "boy" project today. Add 25 bonus points if you use the colors navy & beige (the boy scouts uniforms colors) as your primary color palette (75% or more).

~ Have fun~

So I'm off work today and took the opportunity to get this little thing into the mail to Wisconsin.

My BFF and I have a running joke about our trucks. Whenever we get into one, we immediately think of each other because we spent SO much of our time together in trucks doing horse business - hauling camp horses back and forth, hauling horses across country, hauling horses to shows, picking up hay, etc...

Just being in a truck triggers the memory and we both pick up the phone and call each other, leaving messages like, "So....I'm in the truck, and of course I thought of you...."

Just dropping off, then off to spend day 3 of sanding my cabinets. Ugggh! They're only bathroom cabinets! Will it never end?

Feb 7 Photo #26 Surprise!
I made this flip gadget to surprise my kids last night. Of course nosy son had to come see what I was making, so not a complete surprise to him, but Kyria was busy in the kitchen so it was a surprise for her.
We have taken to playing Uno lately and can never remember which direction we are going. I hope this will help, if only we can remember to flip it. We had been using a pencil, but this just seemed like more fun.
Pat, can I take points for this? It's an interactive element, made with die cuts, but not exactly a LO or home decor item.

Sure. Go ahead and point it. It's interactive, it's something that you created using your products, and it's TECHNICALLY used in your HOME,
so it could be COUNTED that way. I don't see that as too big a stretch.

Thanks, and yep, I picked them up at WalMart. They're not puffy though - they're heavyweight chipboard which is why I got them.

I don't like the glossy puffy ones, and these are really nothing like those at all. There's a single sheet, and I think there is probably 100 little hearts on it. They're itty bitty, but they stick way up off the paper. I like them. I wish I'd bought two packs instead of just the one. I think I may go back before V.day gets here.

Been working on my Round Robin project a bit today, but MOSTLY been trying to streamline my gallery and neaten it up by grouping projects ...

I'm pleased with the results.

I also got all my albums labeled, so at some point, I need to photograph all that and load up my Monthly Challenge completed....

Oh they look like the ones I used here:

Project life - Week 1 By Doreena

And after taking a closer look at your project and rereading your description I'm 100% they ARE the same, because mine came the same way w/ roughly the same amount and variety of colors and patterns like yours (not just the red ones that are on my project) except... I call those puffy, LOL!
I used a couple more on my "Christmas Faves" pocket page layout including one of the white ones w/ the red heart center.

I suspect they probably ARE the same ones. I mean, WalMart, right? How many variations could there be? My pack has the white ones with the red hearts in the middle. I love the polka dots ones the best. They're cute, huh? I really like them!


And it's not enough to be channeling the Daily Challenges. Now you gotta be channeling my WalMart shopping cart too? This is getting kinda creepy, don'tcha think?

Well, the finish for my RR turned out to be some covered chipboard that I found in my scrap box, then doing some punch work, and finishing up with some crackle accents.

Imma gonna let it marinate for a day or two and then see how I feel about it. It doesn't feel quite finished to me, but I cannot decide what else it needs - if anything. My Round 1 project was beautifully simplistic, and I'm thinking that a clean and simple direction is probably the way things need to go.

But you know me. I do love to fuss.

Dropping off my daily pic, too. #13 - BFF
AGC February Photos By JustLyn

Twice I thought I was finished sanding and twice I found stubborn finish still hanging on. Today I took my doors and drawer fronts outside in the sunshine and spent a third day with my new BFF here and I think I am finally finished. Well almost finished; I still have some spots that will need the dremel to get to.

Okay... I was able to finish my LO and I am really happy with it! I am hoping it qualifies for the colors... the two background pages and matting are almost all Navy and Beige.

I even got to use Rub-ons and I haven't done that in AGES... so much fun. I have been saving that piece of fiber for JUST the right LO and this was it! Thanks for the inspiration. I am going to try to tally up my points right now... if both my boys stay asleep.

Ok, my lovies.

I am going to be teaching a Christmas tag class this morning, dealing with carpet installers, and somewhere in the middle of all of it trying to get my daughter's birthday gift wrapped and her gift tag made.

I'll be back when I get a chance, but it might not be until much later this evening. I will TRY to get the daily posted for tomorrow sometime tonight, but don't get freaked out if you don't see it before tomorrow morning.

Love and hugs.

~ Have fun ~

OK, here's my Sketch no. 1 effort:

One Singular Sensation By Ppilgrim

I started this with my kit but there was no way I could stick to it, not with a basket of Valentines embellishments sitting on my desk ;-) That is, however, a Sassafrass Lass alpha in the title so I figure I should get some kind of credit for stash-busting.

Well, at least you're honest about it.
And I don't blame you. I have some new little Valentine stickers and I had to break out and make a card just so I could use them ....

We always give credit when credit is due.
Were you going to take a play at pointing this for practice? ;-)

I can't seem to get my computer and my phone to talk to each other at the moment. I want to upload the tag that I did with my class ... and the technology just sits there looking at each other and not speaking.

Time for some time out for both of them, I think.

Ok, so that wasn't so bad. They just needed a stern talking to and a hard boot in the USB ports and they wimpered a bit and agreed to play nice from now on... We'll see how long THAT lasts.


Here's my class project today. It was kind of fun to play with my Christmas stuff for a bit. I don't know that I'm going to work as hard at these as I did last year, but I'm not feeling the need to help anybody get a garland off the ground either. My girls have PLENTY of tags for theirs and my mom's is pretty happy with hers as well. So maybe a half dozen for the year - seems like a good number. Or maybe just four ... We'll just have to see how it goes.

I tried to create my week #2 project and all was well until I realized I needed to use one of the "cupid" song (titles or lyrics) as my title; I was going to use some of the lyrics in my journaling...
I already had a title I liked so I wasn't going to change it...
All other criteria was met though.... so close!

Pat you are great at providing us w/ challenging challenges!!!

Hello my new friends... I am making myself take it easy tonight... going to sprinkle some love, add my daily photo and edit points on my last LO... but no scraping... even though I have a great idea for the daily. I have really liked getting so many LO done after not much scrapping besides my mom's 8 x 8 album in the last couple years.

I am craving the adult interaction I am getting here... work at a school in the library... come home to a 2 and 4 year old... with hubby deployed. I love getting the sprinkles of love and joking with all of you! Hope all of you had a great day. I tried to have pizza today... but I apparently went too early to our Casey's to get a couple of slices... they only had out breakfast pizza... and I just can't do that!

Will sprinkle some love once the boys are actually asleep... I let them be up a bit late tonight... in hopes of sleeping past 6 tomorrow! LOL... I am so funny!

I'm glad that you think so. I try hard to make them challenging but do-able, you know? Let me know if they ever get TOO hard, because that would take the fun right out of things.

I want them to really twist your brain around its creative axle, but I don't want them to defeat you. When I create one, I try to keep it to "four" things - topic, title, some embellishment requirements, and one other odd thing out.

And I try to make them a challenge for me too, so I never consider the stuff that *I* have in *MY* kit when I'm designing the challenge. Once I have the idea, I just flesh it out and then put it up and once it's live, THEN I go start digging in my own stuff to put my project together.

And sometimes I think to myself, "what on EARTH was I THINKING????? I must have been out of my MIND!"

This is definitely the challenge for that -
if you want to get stuff done, then there's always a challenge trigger to get you started. Be careful not to get so wound about it that you burn out though. The first time I played this challenge, I chased every single point,
argued about a few of them, and lost sight of the reason that I was scrapping to begin with. I won that month,
but the price my mojo paid was NOT worth it. I wasn't able to create anything for about six months. It was awful. So - seriously - enjoy the fun, and use the motivation, but remember that it's more important to make memories WORTH scrapping than it is to scrap.
Hug those boys every chance you get because by this time tomorrow they'll be heading to high school and you'll be lucky if you can get a peck on the cheek on their way out the door. :-)

So happy that we're able to be here for you.
Life is seriously tough when you're the only adult at home ... And your job, teaching 3rd grade, you're surrounded by kids all day as well, so I'm REALLY glad you have a place that you can come and be adult and have fun at the same time. And a virtual world is really nice for that kind of situation, because you can put it on hold for a half a day and come back to it and it's the same as if you just left two minutes ago.

You're a good mom. And if they don't sleep in, well, at least there is coffee!

I

an

idiot.





I spent a couple of hours getting my daughter's birthday present wrapped and her gift tag done, and then we went to Tulsa to take her and my SIL out to dinner and we were pulling into town when I realized that I had left her gift sitting on my scrap desk.

:: It'll have to go in the mail.


I hate when I do stuff like that. I WORKED at remembering. Worked HARD at remembering. Got the gift a month ago. Got it WRAPPED. Got the tag done. Got it on the desk ready to go.

Then walked off without it.

Repeat.

I

am

~ * ~ * ~ * ~ DAILY CHALLENGE ~ * ~ * ~ * ~

FEBRUARY 10

It's NATIONAL UMBRELLA DAY!


On this day, we honor one of the world’s most useful inventions, the umbrella! Not only does the umbrella help keep us dry from the rain, but it also protects us from the heat of the sun. Umbrellas can also be used as a fashion accessory. Umbrellas have been featured in many motion pictures, most notably: Singing in the Rain (1952) and Mary Poppins (1964)

Interesting Umbrella TidBits:

The word umbrella comes from the Latin word umbra, meaning shade or shadow. Brolly is a slang word for umbrella, often used in Britain, New Zealand, Australia and South Africa. Bumbershoot is a fanciful Americanism for an umbrella from the late 19th century.

The basic umbrella was invented over four thousand years ago. There is evidence of umbrellas in the ancient art and artifacts of Egypt Assyria, Greece and China. It was the Chinese that first waterproofed umbrellas for use in the rain. They waxed and lacquered their paper parasols to protect them from the elements.

One of the first umbrella shops in existence opened in 1830 at 53 New Oxford Street in London, England. James Smith and Sons operates regular hours at the same location still today. In 1928, Hans Haupt’s pocket umbrellas appeared. In 1969, Bradford E. Phillips, the owner of Totes Incorporated of Loveland, Ohio, obtained a patent for the first “working folding umbrella.” Umbrellas have also been fashioned into hats as early as 1880 and as recently as 1987.

In photography, umbrellas with a reflective inside are used by photographers as a diffusion device when employing artificial lighting and as a glare shield and shade, most often in portrait situations.


~ Use an umbrella on your project today.

~ Have fun~
