LIFE MUSES BY RO and OTHER WRITINGS
A Designer's Life: Erica Hite

For the past month, my husband and I have been reading a couple of my old childhood books to my son, Lucian, at bedtime: Shel Silverstein's A Light in the Attic and Where the Sidwalk Ends. I'm amazed that they're his favorite books and that he has the patience and desire to sit through an entire book of poems! I often wonder how much he grasps of some of the concepts, but I bet the rhyming words and silly stories keep him enchanted.

Life Muses by Ro: 86,400 Seconds

"Can I have money for gas, Mom?"

Life Muses by Ro: It's Simply Criminal

I'm a criminal.

Bank robbers steal money from financial institutions. Reckless drivers steer their vehicles with dangerous abandon. Jay-walkers cross the road in the wrong spot. And bad writers break acceptable rules of language.

Scrap Girls, Etc: Small Things

Note from Heidi: I came across this blog post written by Thao Cosgrove and had to smile to myself! I remembered being a slave to my nap schedule when I was pregnant also, and now I'm a slave to Nelly's nap schedule. I'm actually writing this as she's grabbing one of her classic 15-minute "All Done!" catnaps.

Life Muses by Ro: Notes from an Archeological Expedition

The explorer has discovered the following things in her top dresser drawer...

Customer Muse by Heather Loenen

I am working away in my home office just off the playroom, writing a new science lesson, answering student questions via e-mail, and sneaking a peek at today's Scrap Girls newsletter while mulling over new digital scrapbooking products to try and new skills to learn. Easily distracted? You bet!

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 Shari Payne

"Goal Attained" by Shari Payne
larger view

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

On this layout, I really wanted to include the medal I received for running in the race, but the colors didn't work at all. After I scanned in my medal and erased all of the areas I didn't want to show, I selected the colors that didn't work with my Magic Wand Tool. Using my Eyedropper Tool, I picked a color from my layout. Then I added an adjustment layer and changed the color using Hue/Saturation, making sure to check the "Colorize" box. After tweaking the sliders for a bit, I was able to get just the right look.

Eclectic Collection Biggie Spring Botanical Collection Lettering Delights Modern Print Font
ScrapSimple Digital Layout Album: Favorites 1 ScrapSimple Paper Templates: Curled Up ScrapSimple Tools - Styles: Basic Shadows 6501
  ScrapSimple Tools - Styles: Butterfly Shadows 6301 Mini  

Commercial license versions of Lettering Delights Modern Print Font, ScrapSimple Digital Layout Album: Favorites 1, ScrapSimple Paper Templates: Curled Up, ScrapSimple Tools - Styles: Basic Shadows 6501 and ScrapSimple Tools - Styles: Butterfly Shadows 6301 Mini are also available.

Software used: Adobe Photoshop CS5 and Adobe Lightroom 2

Name of challenge: Create a layout about yourself.

Journaling: Two years ago I was told that I would never be able to run again. I have Degenerative Disc Disease and it has caused me constant pain since just before my 30th birthday. Now, I have never in my life been a runner. It's not something that comes easy to me, nor have I ever desired to try. But when someone tells me that I can't do something, well, I'm sure you can guess that it just lights a fire under me. The problem is that I still have the disease and it still causes me great pain. So in June of 2009 I had spinal fusion surgery and it was the best decision I ever made because it has allowed me to live a somewhat normal life. That's not to say I'm not still in pain, because I am and it's still constant. However, it is no longer debilitating. I have since learned that exercise will slow the progression on my disease. So in June 2010 I made myself a goal. I decided to become a runner! I committed to running in a 5k race before I turn 40 in December of this year. On 9/25/2010 I achieved that goal! My pace wasn't fast but I completed the entire 5k without walking!

There are two more races I plan on running in before I turn 40. I think I just might make one of those a 10k!

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!
