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: Durin Eberhart

I am a fortunate woman. I have a mother who likes to shop. She goes on several shopping sprees a year and buys a lot of clothes. She has tastes that change quickly, and she tires of her clothes easily. She is also my size! Since I was a teenager and grew as tall as my mother, I have been able to borrow her clothes, and she has borrowed mine.

Life Muses by Ro: The Other Side of Tomorrow

I want to be on the other side of tomorrow.

Life Muses by Ro: Carried Away with the Morning Star

It's gone. It's gone. Yesterday is gone and with its passing, it carried away the mistakes you made in its rooms.

Scrap Girls, Etc.: Time for the Sidewalk Chalk

Note from Heidi: In Utah, we thought spring was here. We had warmer weather, blooming daffodils, and budding fruit trees, and then we got one of the biggest snow storms of the season! So when I read this blog entry from Shalae, I could totally relate - I want my windows open, my garden planted, and my t-shirt on! And this year, I have extra incentive to want to be outside. It will be Nelly's first time to experience spring, and I can't wait to relive it all from her fresh perspective. Guess I'd better buy some sidewalk chalk, too!

Life Muses by Ro: It's Her Wedding Day!

Today is Julianne's wedding day. I'm a mix of emotions about it. I'm happy she has found a great guy to share her life with. I'm happy that it will be a beautiful event. I'm happy she is happy.

Customer Muse by Jeanetta L.

Today is the first day of the speech and debate season for my son's high school team. This will be his last year competing on the team as he will be graduating this year, which makes this a rather bittersweet day.

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 Armi Custodio

"Fearless" by Armi Custodio
larger view

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

To slice up your photo, just position your frames and place two copies of your photo on the layers below the frames. Then, with one of the frame layers active, use the Magic Wand Tool to make a selection ("marching ants") by clicking on the empty space inside the frame. Expand this selection by around 40 pixels (Select> Modify> Expand). Invert the selection (Select> Inverse), and hit Delete. Repeat the same steps for the other frame.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Mother's Day Silhouettes

Before we know it, Mother's Day will be here. I was thinking of what I would like to do this year and thought that the Silhouettes which I taught at convention would be so much fun to do as gifts on canvases for my sisters and mother. We have so many beautiful Scrap Girls scrapbooking papers and products, it was time for me to get some of those onto the wall.

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.
