Digital Photography Simplified
Tuesdays, November 2nd - December 7th
7:00PM MT

Are you ready to take your photography to a new level? Have you admired the pictures in gallery layouts and wondered how you could recreate them? If so, this is the class for you. Join Mary Elizabeth O'Toole to learn new photography techniques and create a portfolio that you can use as a showcase for photos or as a record of your learning. You'll improve your photos by learning more about how your digital camera works and then applying the theory through weekly photo assignments. This class includes the digital Photography Simplified eBook, six one-hour sessions in a private chat room and access to a private class forum and gallery.

If you have already bought the digital Photography Simplified eBook, email [email protected] to receive a store credit to use towards the purchase of this class.

Important: This is an intermediate level digital photography techniques class. It is open to all students interested in improving their photography skills. It is NOT a scrapbook technique class and, therefore, not associated with any one scrapbook software program. However, students are required to understand the basic skills taught in the Scrapbook Secrets Revealed and MORE Scrapbook Secrets Revealed program prior to starting the course. This information will not be reviewed as part of the course!

LIFE MUSES BY RO and OTHER WRITINGS
A Designer's Life: Heidi Dillon

These pictures are of Nelly and me in the University of Utah Hospital's emergency room. I knew we'd end up here for one thing or another during her childhood, I just didn't expect this!

Life Muses by Ro: 10 Cool Computer Tips

1. It is important that you not stare at your computer screen too long. Get up and stretch occasionally.

Life Muses by Ro: Take Out the Bay Leaf!

Today, I thought I'd share a recipe with you. I've shown it to friends before, and they loved it. It's inexpensive and very easy to make. My mother has been making this as long as I can remember. Gary loves it when we have it, which hasn't been often enough.

Scrap Girls, Etc: Smile

Note from Heidi: This short but simple blog post from Syndee Nuckles is so true for me! It's wonderful how supportive and caring our Scrap Girls members are. I'm constantly amazed by how much each of you wants to help each other. For those of you who haven't spent much time with us, please give us a chance as your schedule allows. We're great fun - and great friends, too!

Life Muses by Ro: Trick or Treat!

Ro shares one of her cartoons. Check it out!

Customer Muse by Jennifer Hamilton

Ah, out of the mouths of babes...

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!

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

I decided to get creative with Marnie Adams's original sketch. I used Sketch #6 to start my layout. First, I rotated it 90 degrees to the left. Then I added another photo above the largest photo.

Way Cool Stuff - Digital Scrapbooking Product Review: ScrapSimple Photo Templates

I'm not a procrastinator by nature, but this assignment to write a review of ScrapSimple Photo Templates sat on my To-Do list for quite some time. I had never, ever used them, and I didn't even own a single one! How was I supposed to write a review of the one product in the Boutique that I never used?

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Create a Family Photo Wall Collage

There's something I am very reluctant to admit. I rarely, if ever, print out my digital photos. I know, this is awful, considering I have a lot of layouts and images sitting on my hard drive. As I've been glancing at several blank walls in our newly rented home (we moved in half a year ago), I realize I should take time to display some photos.

NOVEMBER EVENTS

November Message Board Game: Spotlight on the Gallery!

Each day during November (except Sunday and Thanksgiving), a member of the Welcome Committee will post a layout in the Monthly Message Board Games forum in the official game thread. The layout will correspond with a product in the Scrap Girls Boutique, and the featured layout will always be the sample layout that is placed on the right side of the product image in the Boutique. A spotlight circle will show a portion of the layout you are to search for. If the layout is not identified by the following morning, a second spotlight circle will be added to the layout, and this will be repeated until the product is identified.

To participate, simply search the Boutique for the spotlighted layout, then post a link to the product page in the official game thread. The winning member's name will be drawn from all the members that correctly identify a product throughout the month. The winner will receive a $10 Gift Certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique.

The winner will be announced in the Newsletter on Saturday, December 4th.

For complete details, visit the Monthly Message Board Games folder on the Scrap Girls Message Board.

Layout Contests:

November Monthly Layout Contest: With the harvest done in most northern hemisphere countries at this time of the year, our forefathers (and mothers) thought it was a good time to take stock of the blessings that they had in their lives. For this month's contest, we want you to do a layout about the blessings in your life whether it is family, friends, your job, or just life in general. Post your layouts in the November Gallery before Midnight MT on November 30th. 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!
