September's Layouts

Hi all! Here are the two layouts for September's Club. The one is a bit difficult to imagine but I have taken a couple shots of one with photos and I think that it will turn out just fine. The left side page of the "BOO" layout is based on a Julie Bonner sketch from back when she had her "52 Sketches, 52 weeks" site. The second layout I know that I originally used a kit from Barnyard Scrappin' for one of their challenges but I can't remember if it was based on a sketch challenge somewhere. Sorry if I missed giving someone the credit for this one. ENJOY!!

DVD Instructions for the NEW MAGIC BOOK!

Just got this from head office so I thought that I would share it with you. My copy of Magic should be here any day now - I am so excited!!!!

How to Easily Access the Templates Found on the Magic™ DVD
Depending on your personal computer, the Magic™ DVD may open differently for each user. Your computer may automatically open the DVD folder, which contains the Magic Templates folder, or it may be programmed to immediately play the DVD. If your computer is programmed to immediately play the DVD, one simple tip to access the templates is to go to the Start Menu and select Computer. Then right click on the DVD Drive, which should indicate that you have the Close To My Heart DVD installed, and select Open from the menu options. Then you’ll have access to the Magic Templates folder. If you haven’t purchased Magic yet, I highly recommend you check out this phenomenal how-to book featuring interactive scrapbooking techniques (9034, $35.50 CAN)!

August Layouts

Hi there! I couldn't resist using the same colors as in my challenge - I think that they turned out really well! I also like the title I cut for the July layouts that I decided to do one for every season - so there is your spoiler for the next month!! So here they are! I think that we'll try meeting towards the end of the month - maybe the 27th - you'll probably have your stuff still all packed up from retreat! Stay tuned for September's layouts over the next couple of days. TFL!

Entry for Sketchy Thursdays 09/09 challenge

This one is a 'multi-tasking' LO - it is for Sketchy Thursdays challenge and Barnyard's Challenge. I used a Bo-Bunny kit put together by my LSS, Barnyard Scrappin' and added some white daisy ink from CTMH and some felt by Kaiser Craft. TFL!!!

Time...ahh, I wish I had more!!

Well, we just finally got the bulk of the kids stuff and ours all moved around. So, #1 son moved into our room, we moved downstairs into what used to be the spare room, Jess moved into Noah's room - we'll have to remove the monster truck wallpaper and paint - Baby stayed where she was and the spare room moved into my scrapbooking room!! AHHHH!!! Don't feel bad for me - it was my idea! We also moved the deep freeze down to the storage room and I am revamping the laundry room to be a combo laundry/craft room/office. I am actually hopeful that I will get more scrapping done this way - dreams - everyone has to have them!!!! haha!!! Just need, like, 36 hours in a day and lose the need to sleep to get it all PROPERLY sorted out!!!

So, hope you like the new background!! Also, check out the new link to the NEW Idea Book - I LOVE LOVE LOVE the new Hooligans paper on p.18-has to be my fav thing in the whole book I think!!!

Don't forget my challenge - Sept 15th is the deadline - anything that uses the color combo Olive, black, cranberry and honey qualifies. Can't wait to see what you come up with!!!

My challenge to myself is to get my Barnyard Challenge kit used up and I think that I am going to combine it with the Sketchy Thursday's sketch for this week - I am all about multi-tasking!!!

Have a great day!!
