Protect your files with Carbonite Online Backup.

Ro personally uses Carbonite to back up her computer. While it won't backup external hard drives, it is a fabulous solution for keeping all of your important documents on your C:/ drive safe and your backups completely up-to-date at all times. Using it has made her stop worrying about losing important business and financial files, because the backup happens without Ro having to do a single thing.

LIFE MUSES BY RO and OTHER WRITINGS
A Designer's Life: Keri Schueller

I'm not very fond of curve balls, but we were handed a substantial one recently.

Avery seemed to have a regular cold virus, and since she often has sinus issues, we kept our eyes on her, but everything looked the same as usual.

Life Muses by Ro: Chickens and Coops

Turquoise paint dripped from the brushes as they quickly worked to cover the rough sides of the chicken coops. I walked back and forth between the rows of coops and told them to hurry.

"Faster, paint faster!" I demanded.

Life Muses by Ro: Dance in the Bathtub

Ro shares one of her doodles... check it out!

Best of the Scrap Girls Blog: Mexican Chicken Skillet Recipe

Note from Ro: My husband and I love green chilies. We love chicken. We love cheese. We love cornbread. This recipe, found in the Scrap Girls Blog, has to be a major hit in my house!

Life Muses by Ro: Saving My Grandparents

I recently acquired a photo of my Grandmother and Grandfather Warner, taken on their 50th anniversary. Because I have almost no photos of them, I was delighted when my aunt and uncle agreed to let me take it. (Telling them that I could repair the image with Photoshop helped my campaign.)

Customer Muse by Papiya Das

Valentine's Day started an odd chain of thoughts for me. A newspaper article mentioned one gentleman who wished to set a Guinness World Record by giving the largest amount of hugs.

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 Jennifer Wight

"Mommy's Easter Basket" by Jennifer Wight
larger view

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

Some of my photos were slightly dark, so I wanted to lighten them up a little bit to match the lighting in the other photos. Thanks to digital photography and digital software programs, this can be done easily. I went to Enhance> Adjust Lighting> Brightness/Contrast. Then I played with the levels to achieve my desired look. I also played with the "Shadow/Highlight" levels under the Adjust Lighting menu. This is a simple way to make your photos look more unified.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Creating a Cast Shadow

What is the difference between a drop shadow and cast shadow? A drop shadow is a shadow that is created under an object while a cast shadow is one that is cast to the side or behind an object. A cast shadow creates a more dramatic effect and makes the object appear more dimensional.

Scrap Girls, Etc.

APRIL EVENTS

April Message Board Game: Progressive Word Scramble!

The object of the game is to correctly guess the name of a product in the Scrap Girls Boutique by solving clues and unscrambling letters we give you. Each day, you will be given a letter found in the product name as well as a clue. You won't know how many letters are in the product name until it is complete. We will keep giving clues until a correct guess is made.

The designer's name or the word "Collection" are not included as part of the puzzle. Letters from any other words in product names (such as "Biggie," "Brush" or "Transparency") may be given as part of the puzzle.

Be the first to answer it correctly and win a $5.00 Gift Certificate to the Boutique! You are only allowed ONE guess per daily clue, and you are only allowed ONE win per month. When you make your guess, you MUST provide a link to the boutique item you are referencing. We will play the game daily during the entire month of April. When a correct answer is given, the new puzzle will start the following day.

For complete details and examples of game play, visit the "Games" folder on the Scrap Girls message board.
