LIFE MUSES BY RO and OTHER WRITINGS
A Designer's Life: Doris Castle

Have you ever received an email from a friend asking you to answer vague questions like, "What is your favorite color?" or "What is your favorite vacation destination?" Usually, you get to see the answers from other friends in the group as you add your own responses to the mix.

Life Muses by Ro: The Grape Juice Did It

He was watching television, drinking his juice out of a tall plastic cup, and when he finished the purple stuff, he began absentmindedly blowing in and out of the tumbler. The container stuck to his mouth as he inhaled, and released when he exhaled. He enjoyed the popping sound, and so he attempted to make it louder with each try. Each round, the popping grew stronger and stronger until suddenly, he grunted. The suction had caused the tumbler to stick to his mouth.

Life Muses by Ro: The Letter "E"

Ro shares another one of her doodles. Check it out!

Best of the Scrap Girls Blog: Oatmeal Cookies

Note from Ro: Drool alert. This post by Melanie Johnson, harvested from the Scrap Girls Digital Scrapbooking Adventures blog is highly likely to cause spontaneous drooling.

Life Muses by Ro: The Pig on the Refrigerator

"OINK! OINK!" the door of the refrigerator reprimanded. "Do not open the door, fatso."

I pulled back my hand and pretended that I was not in the room. "Go ahead," Paula said. "It won't hurt you."

Customer Muse by D. VanNote

My dad was always there. Every night at the dinner table, he was there. Sometimes it was a pain, if I was late or had a poor report card, he was right there.

div

Muse: To be absorbed in one's thoughts; engage in meditation. Not intended to solve the world's problems, another person's problems, or to cover topics completely. One does not have to agree with musings to enjoy them, just as one does not have to be the same as someone else to appreciate who they are.

Would you like to earn a $20 Gift Certificate? Send your own muse to [email protected]. If it is selected for publication in the Scrap Girls newsletter, you'll get to have fun shopping!

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Repurposed ScrapSimple Digital Layout Album Templates

Sometimes with digital scrapbooking products that are theme based, you may feel as though you are limited in options for layouts. The ScrapSimple Digital Layout Album Templates are a good example of theme-based products. Perhaps you've used the ScrapSimple Digital Layout Album Templates: 12x12 To Have To Hold to design an entire wedding album, but there's no sense in letting great layout templates collect digital dust! Let's open them back up and breathe new life into them.

Way Cool Stuff - Digital Scrapbooking Product Review: Alphas

Do you ever think you should be finished with a layout, but you feel like something is missing? You have your photos — check. You have journaling — check. You have cute embellishments — check. With all of these fabulous elements, how can your layout still be lacking? The answer is simple: You need a title. You need something impressive! You need letters that create a visual focal point!

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Using ScrapSimple Tools – Scripts for Saving Files

You've created a great digital scrapbooking layout using Photoshop or Photoshop Elements, and now it's time to save it. If you are only saving a copy for print, then it's pretty straight forward. You save the file as a JPG, and your work is done.

It's not hard, and I will have a layout with a Word Art example in the gallery. Then we'll meet in the chat room to have fun, chat, and create our Word Art layout! Everyone can participate and create a layout, even if you can't make the chat. Hope to see you there!

FEBRUARY EVENTS

February Message Board Game: BINGO!

It's that time again! Join us for an exciting game of BINGO on the Message Board Forum in February! Pick 25 words from the list provided in the forum and send them in an email to [email protected] with a subject line that says "BINGO CARD - your SG message board username" by Saturday, January 30th (Midnight MST) in order to play in the first round, which will begin on Monday, February 1st.

Each day, members of the Welcoming Committee will call five random words from the Bingo list. Match just 15 of those words to win a BINGO. You must be first to call bingo in the forum to win that round. After a winner is called, the boards can be cleared and a new round will begin the following day. All winners win a $5 gift certificate to the boutique! We like to see lots of winners, so please remember that each person can only win one round during the month. Have fun!

If you miss the first round cutoff date, you can still play! Just send in your Bingo card at any time during the month and you'll be eligible to begin playing when the next new round starts. Everyone who sends in a Bingo card will receive a confirmation email that their card has been received. If you do not receive confirmation within 24 hours, please re-send your list of words.

Layout Contests:

February Monthly Layout Contest: During the month of February, many people turn to thoughts of love. What greater love is there than the love for family.

Create your layout and post it in the February Layout Contest Gallery by Midnight MST on February 28th. Be sure to list your credits in the description or under the EXIF Properties. If your layout is one of the two chosen, you will win a $10 gift certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique!

Club Concepts Layout Contest: Post your new layout using the current club selection (either the Scrap Girls Club or the ScrapSimple Club) in our Scrap Girls Club Members Gallery or the ScrapSimple Club Members' Gallery. Be sure to list all of the Scrap Girls products you used.
