LIFE MUSES BY RO and OTHER WRITINGS
A Designer's Life: Brandy Murry

Living in Europe was always one of my lifelong dreams, to be surrounded by all the Old World beauty, and I am so thankful to have the chance to live out that dream. There are many things I love about being able to experience life here as it is so different from my life in the United States. I have come to appreciate both.

Life Muses by Ro: all Grown Up

Note from Ro: This muse makes me quite melancholy. I wrote it in 2007, not knowing that in just three years' time, my teenage daughter would become a woman who is talking about marrying her boyfriend soon. When she told me the news, I said, "Weren't you just born the other day?"

Life Muses by Ro: The Girl in the Window

The girl in the window wore a plaid coat with a tie around her waist. The girl in the window wore black suede boots that cut into her calves when she walked. The girl in the window carried two books, a pad of paper, and a tooled leather purse that held lip gloss, three pencils, a leaky blue pen, and a lunch ticket.

Best of the Scrap Girls Blog: A Picture a Day

Note from Ro: I find this post (from the Scrap Girls blog) by Cherise Oleson fascinating. In just two simple layouts, she has managed to give a good bird's-eye-view of her family's life. Can you imagine what a year's worth of these layouts would feel like? Nice.

Life Muses by Ro: Just Human

I am human.

I stay up too late.

Customer Muse by Margaret H.

I have just spent the most glorious week with my girlfriend. What is it about "the girls" that is so wonderful and satisfying?

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 scrapbook layout by Janine Buckles

"Hanging Out Together" by Janine Buckles
larger view

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

I love to use stitching in my layouts and often use them to give the appearance that they are holding something down. The challenge to use them in a new way was a great idea. I love to try to come up with new ways to use products. I'm sure I'm not the first one to use stitching this way, but I chose to use Brush Set: Art Deco Stitching as a frame. To do this, I created a new layer above my paper layer and then selected my Brush Tool and chose the Scalloped Brush from the Brush Set: Art Deco Stitching. Then I placed it near the top of my image, just under the center of the word art and clicked on my layout to put it in place. Next, I duplicated the stitching layer by right-clicking on it in my Layers Palette and choosing Duplicate. Then, with it still highlighted, I rotated it by clicking Image> Rotate> Layer. (It's important to remember to rotate the layer and not the whole image.) Then I repeated the process twice to create the other side and bottom and used my Eraser Tool to remove any stitching sections that overlapped. Last, I applied ScrapSimple Tools – Style: Sew Doodly Biggie to each layer to complete the look of a stitched frame.

MARCH EVENTS

March Message Board Game: Posting Contest!

It's that time again - Posting Contest time! This is where you are rewarded for your flying fingers and chattiness. The contest will run from March 1 when we post the thread to March 31 at 12:00 midnight (MST). We are doing things a little differently this time, so here are the rules:

1) To enter the Posting Challenge, reply in the game thread with your CURRENT post count. This is the number under your Avatar that shows when you post. Do not post the number found on your profile; it is a different number that is calculated differently.

2) During the month, chat your fingers off!

3) On March 31, BEFORE midnight (MST), go back to your original post in the game thread (the one with your starting post count) and take a screenshot of it. Send the screen shot to [email protected]. The screenshot is your contest entry! We will calculate your post count based on the numbers on the screenshot. (Directions for taking screenshots will be posted in the game thread.)

Prizes: The top poster gets a $20 Scrap Girls gift certificate. Everyone over 250 new posts will be entered in a random drawing for a $10 Scrap Girls gift certificate. Everyone over 100 new posts will be entered into a random drawing for a $5 Scrap Girls gift certificate.

div

Layout Contests:

March Monthly Layout Contest: Smile! The month of March includes Smile Day. Does seeing someone else's smile make you smile? For this month's contest, we want to see your layouts featuring a smile. Create your layout and post it in the March Layout Contest Gallery by Midnight MST on March 31st. 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. If your layout is chosen, it will be showcased as a Club Concepts layout winner, and you will win a $5 Gift Certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique!
