LIFE MUSES BY RO and OTHER WRITINGS
A Designer's Life: Jacelen Deinema

As some of you might know, I got remarried after 10 years of being single. Bill and I had a very small ceremony with just the minister and the couple who introduced us as witnesses to our special day. Our families were both fine with that because we talked about having a bigger reception party later in the summer when the weather was better and more people could attend.

Life Muses by Ro: Shoe Expert

"Which shoe looks better, dear?"

Life Muses by Ro: How Do I Look?

"How do I look?"

These are the most dreaded words in the English language for any self-respecting husband, because it is difficult to reply honestly without getting into trouble.

Scrap Girls, Etc: Truly Thankful

I know it's Thanksgiving Day here in America, so I'll make it short and sweet.

Many of us are spending today feeling thankful - thankful for parades, thankful for football games, thankful for turkey and cranberries. The things that top the Thankfulness List are usually big things like family, friends, and health. But are we truly thankful for these things?

Life Muses by Ro: 18 Ways to Get More Out of Life

1. Think before you speak.

Customer Muse by Josee Bolduc

My four-year-old son and I were at the toy store when he asked me to purchase a Transformer toy. It wasn't the first time he asked for that toy. I kept thinking it was too old for him and that he still doesn't have the motor skills to play with it without getting frustrated. Trying to change the subject, I asked him why he wanted that toy.

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!

"Thankful For You" by Armi Custodio

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

To make the beige alpha from the Prairieland Collection stand out against the background, I clipped a red paper from the same collection (Ctrl+Alt+G) onto the alpha and set its Blending Mode to "Pin Light." This recolored the alpha while retaining its vine/leaf details.

They allow me to put my own twist to the item to match my layout just how I want it.

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!
