Late Night Insight

"You should go to bed," the voice in my head nagged me. My husband had already been asleep for three hours, just like he should be, resting up for a day of work.

I, on the other hand, was sitting in the living room chair, feet propped up on the ottoman, dogs asleep around me, with the laptop in my lap. I was still staring at the same scrapbook layout I started that afternoon. Something seemed to be missing... maybe I should add some journaling... or should I add another embellishment? What exactly should I do to make it perfect?

Finally, I decided to give up for the night and go to bed. Halfway up the stairs, I remembered that I should clean the car windows. The dogs had been for a car ride earlier in the day, and they had made a drooling mess of the windows. I went to the pantry and retrieved the paper towels and glass cleaner.

As I scrubbed the windows at 1:00 in the morning, I began to think. There are so many things that we should do in life, but sometimes we need to make decisions that make us happy. So instead of going to bed like I should, I returned to my computer and finished that layout – in the way that made me happy.

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!

Member of the Month Image

Member of the Month: Belle

Isabel
Scrap Girls' Member of the Month - July 2011
Member Name: Belle

1. What program do you use to do your digital scrapbooking?

I use Photoshop Elements 9 (PSE9) and love it. I still have a lot to learn, though.

2. Are you a Mac or a PC?

PC. I use a laptop or a notebook, depending on where I am at the time.

3. Tell us the make and model of digital camera that you use.

Canon SX 20. I love my camera, and I learn something new every time we have a Scrap Girls Challenge.

4. Name one thing that every beginning digital scrapbooker should know.

Know what your program can do. I could not do what I do without Ro's videos, Scrapbook Software Secrets Revealed and MORE Scrapbook Software Secrets Revealed.

5. If you could be transformed into a digital scrapbooking embellishment, what would you choose and why?

I would not be an embellishment but a mask. I love masks, and layouts always look special when the photos are blended in.

6. What time of day do you find that you do your best scrapbooking?

Early morning (sometimes as early as 3:00 a.m.!)

7. What is your favorite snack?

Because I am always on diet, I like to treat myself to baked beans on toast. Love it!

8. What is your least favorite household chore?

All of them. My motto is "Leave till tomorrow what should be done today; someone else might do it."

9. Finish this sentence. "I couldn't live without..."

...my faith, family, and of course, my laptop, Scrap Girls, Kindle, iPod, PVR (TiVo), couch, Bugsy, maid, gardener...

10. What's your current favorite layout that you've done?

Early on Monday, Pat will post a thread on the Chat section of the board giving you the quote that you will use to make your own word art. It's not hard, and she will have a layout with a Word Art example in the gallery. Then we'll meet in the chat room to have fun, chat, and create our Word Art layout! Everyone can participate and create a layout, even if you can't make the chat. Hope to see you there!

Games

July Message Board Game: Summer Scavenger Hunt!

Dust off those thinking caps and hunting boots! We're having a Summer Scavenger Hunt, and you're invited! Join us for the July Message Board Game, where each Monday through Saturday during the month of July, a member of the Welcoming Committee will post a clue in the official game thread. The clue will describe a product from the Scrap Girls Boutique. To participate, search the Boutique for the product and post a link to the product page in the official game thread.

But wait, there's more! In a new twist to the scavenger hunt game, on certain days you will be sent to the Scrap Girls Gallery to look for layouts using specific products or collections, and then post a link to your layout comment in the official game thread.

Three winners will be drawn from all the members who correctly identify a product or find Gallery layouts throughout the month. Each winner will receive a $10 Gift Certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique! Good luck in your search!

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

You could even scrap about a time you displayed some independence! Be sure to include some journaling to support your photos. Post your layouts in the July Monthly Layout Gallery before Midnight MT on July 31st. Be sure to list your credits in the description or under the EXIF Properties. If your layout is one of the two chosen winners, you will receive a $10 Gift Certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique!
