High Noon Crop

Join your guest host April Showers for the High Noon Crop every Wednesday at Noon eastern time. These crops are designed to allow you to work on your own photos and themes, simply giving participants a one hour goal, and a fun, new challenge each week!
On January 21st, we'll do a three-photo challenge! Create a layout using three photos - no more, no less!
You'll have one hour to create a layout and upload to the special High Noon Crop gallery. You'd be amazed what you can get done in just one hour! Meet new friends and have fun in the chat room! We hope you'll join us!
Textile Inspiration Chat
Wednesday, January 21st - 9:00PM ET
Join Launa & Zaz for a Textile Challenge and Crop, we will meet Wednesday, January 21st, at 9:00pm EST in the Scrap Girls Chat Room!
Do the patterns, textures, and colors of textiles fascinate you? Do you get inspiration from anything from pillows to your grandmother's apron? Then this challenge is for you!
A few hours before the challenge begins, I'll post a textile for you to use as the starting point for your page. You may be inspired by the colors, placement of patterns, textures... just let it be your inspiration! I can't wait to see what you come up with! See you there!
Thursday, January 22nd - 1:00PM ET
What is NSBR? It's a non-scrapbooking related chat! We talk about everything, including some scrapbooking and usually chocolate. It's a great chance to meet new friends, catch up on what everyone is up to, and just relax! If you have a problem, we'll lend an ear or a shoulder to cry on. Have some great news to share? We'd love to celebrate with you.
So, join me, Michelle (Shelbi), on Jan. 22nd, at 1 PM EST, in the chat room Lobby! Hope to see you there!
Critique Chat Session
Thursday, January 22nd - 2:00PM ET
Do you have a layout that just has you stuck? Would you like some constructive criticism in a friendly, non-threatening type forum? Maybe you want some last-minute advice on a layout that you are submitting.... Then join Theresa (wxchic) and Christy (christyVW) for a critique session at 2pm ET in the chat room!
We'll take a closer look at your layout and make some suggestions to improve it. Don't be afraid! We'll make it fun! Please be sure to have the layout you want critiqued in the Gallery and have the link to that layout available. Members will be chosen at random and we will try to fit 5-6 critiques a session.
Can't wait to see you there!
