This digital scrapbooking class offers you a personal challenge to undertake a Month of Gratitude for the Everyday Blessings in your life. Challenge yourself to take a picture a day for one month and catch the blessings in the everyday moments around you. Think positively and take a 'Gratitude Attitude' as you capture the people and places that make your world special. Create a 4x6 layout for each day then combine them for a powerful mini album to keep or to give as a gift.

Join Mary Elizabeth O'Toole for this unique one-month journey. You will get daily email inspiration that will include inspiration such as quotes, and photo and layout tips. There will be two scheduled chat sessions that will give you an opportunity to share ideas and possible photo subjects as well as strategies for meeting the challenge and completing a mini-album in one month.

LIFE MUSES BY RO and OTHER WRITINGS
A Designer's Life: Cherise Oleson

1. I can type somewhere between 80-90 words per minute. (But even more interesting than that is that my husband is equally as fast – if not faster!)

Life Muses by Ro: Learning Between the Lines

10 Things I Learned At School When My Teachers Weren't Looking

Life Muses by Ro: A Tale of Woe, Misery, and Rescue

"Tremendous problem," Frank said. "I don't know why people think computers last forever."

Scrap Girls, Etc: Waffles and Zos

Note from Heidi: Breakfast has become a big deal in my house since Nelly has started eating solid foods. Her dad has become a regular gourmet chef, cooking everything from sun-dried tomato-and-goat-cheese omelets to raspberry-and-honey pancakes. But when we're not in the mood to cook, we often walk to a neighborhood bistro that specializes in Scandinavian breakfast foods. It's been fun to try the different kinds of sweet breads and waffles they serve, but the sour lingonberry jam hasn't been a huge hit yet!

Life Muses by Ro: Living Well

Live Well.

There it was - the wisdom I had been looking for all day long. "Live well," the pill box instructed. "Live well."

Customer Muse by Carol Henderson

I had already decided to clean out my storage bin in Los Angeles. Then I read Ro's Muse in the October 5th newsletter, and it only reaffirmed my desire to do so. I have so much stuff in that bin, and I've been holding on to it for over two years now. Scared to let go of stuff that I will not ever use again - decorations for Christmas, Halloween, Easter, towels, sheets, silverware, dishes, a desk, books, clothes. You name it, and I've probably got it in that storage bin.

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

"Evan's First Halloween" by Janine Buckles
larger view

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

Marnie Adams' sketch books (like her Scrapbooking 911 - 20 Sketches to Revitalize Your Digital Scrapbooking - Book 4 from which I selected a sketch for this layout) provide great inspiration for digital scrapbooking layouts. It's good to keep in mind that they are designed to help you, to "jump start" your creativity. For this layout, I used the sketch as a starting point but didn't follow its design completely. What I mean is that I used the basic outline - the placement of the photo, the photo-mat, and the placement of the top-right and bottom-left embellishments. The original sketch had space for two smaller photos in the space where I put one large image. It also had a space for a title and suggested placement of small embellishments. I know if I followed the sketch, my layout would have been great, but sometimes I like to break the rules! Isn't it great that there are really no rules in digital scrapbooking? Try taking a sketch and using it as the "bones" for your layout and see where it takes you!

Software used: Adobe Photoshop Elements 5.0

Name of challenge: Halloween

Other Ingredients:

  • Font - Freestyle Script
  • Font - Calibri

Journaling: For your first Hallowe'en I sewed a simple costume that would fit over your clothes. I bought two for you to pick from and you chose the "scare-co" over the "frank-tien". I still have both of them! Your favourite part of the costume was the little mouse. My favourite part was how easy it was to make!

TUTORIALS and ARTICLES
ScrapSimple Club Concepts Tutorial: Working with Word Art Templates

October's Scrap Girls ScrapSimple Club's featured designers are Doris Castle and Angie Briggs. Their club is full of fun products that can help you document your photos and get creative in amazing ways.

Designer Do-Over: Doris Castle

This layout brings back so many memories of when my youngest daughter was a preschooler and I was blessed to have her home with me all day, every day. Now that she is at school there are fewer times to have these wonderful moments of doing things together such as crafts, playing, and baking. This makes this layout so much more special to me.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: A Subtle Approach to using Graphic Background Papers

I love graphic paper. It's always so fun to look at a great pattern. However, once photos, embellishments, and text are introduced to a layout with too much pattern, it can become too overwhelming visually. There is a great way to add a flourish of graphic pattern to enhance your page without overloading it.

Way Cool Stuff - Digital Scrapbooking Product Review: ScrapSimple Tools - Styles

Styles are an incredible digital scrapbooking tool! Styles help create realistic textures and lend to the movement and mood of a layout.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Two Easy Ways to Use ScrapSimple Paper Templates

No two ScrapSimple Paper Templates are alike! They come in many forms. In this tutorial, I want to show you how to use a basic template in JPG format. Let's start with ScrapSimple Paper Templates: Molly Milkshakes Biggie. I am using the Large Brocade template.

Online Class Round-Up

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.
