Life’s Milestones

There are big events in a person's life, like getting married, the birth of children, and having those same children grow up, graduate from college, and find satisfying careers. One of the milestones in my life is the wedding of my youngest son, Dave, who is getting married this summer. We are all very excited about this, not just because Emily is an incredible young lady, but also because it marks the youngest of my kids starting into his life as an adult.

Dave has always been an adventurer. He has taken trips to Italy, Germany, Ecuador, and Alaska. He has led Adventure Trek trips in the Canadian Rockies, and this summer, in North Carolina. It is so wonderful that he found a soul-mate who enjoys the outdoors and all those adventures also. Emily has a degree in Environmental Education and just returned from her own travels in Scotland.

I find it hard to believe that the time has gone by so quickly. I can't be that old to have two grown children. How did that happen? I know we will all be taking lots of pictures on the actual wedding day, but I wanted to mark the milestone of the engagement and "save the date" with a digital scrapbooking page. Their dog, Laika, helped with the announcement.

Favorite Product I've designed:
Watercolor Spring Collection

Watercolor Spring Collection

This collection's welcome explosion of color and spring feel has always been one of my favorites.
During the design process I grew as both and artist and a digital scrapbooker, so
this collection will always hold a special place in my heart.

Back to the Basics

Redownloading Policy

We've all heard the nightmare stories before. You turn on your computer in the morning, but it won't boot up. Or you accidentally knock your external hard drive off your desk – and now your computer won't recognize it, and you've lost all your files.

What can you do next? Will Scrap Girls send you new links for your items?

The answer is yes, we will help you retrieve your lost or undownloaded files in one of two ways.

The first way is by sending you a new link. We can send you a new download link for any of the digital scrapbooking products that are still currently available in our Boutique. If your order history shows that you have bought a product, and it’s still in our Boutique, we can help you!

These links, just like the links for any products purchased normally, are good for 30 days. If you have a large purchase history with Scrap Girls, we will send you groups of products. That allows you to take your time downloading, unzipping, and backing up the new files. Once you are done with the first group, you will simply email us, and we'll send you more files.

The second way is for any product you have purchased that is currently retired. You will know which items these are by looking at your order history, as they will have zzRetired in front of the product name. These items are no longer available in our Boutique to send as download links. But if you'd like to retrieve these, you may purchase a CD burn. We will then burn the items on CDs and mail them to you.

While I hope you never find yourself in the situation where you have lost all your digital scrapbooking files, if you do, it’s no nightmare! Send us an email at [email protected], and we’ll be glad to help!

What's Happening at Scrap Girls

Crops and Chats

ScrapSimple Club Chat

Join April (April Showers) and Shannon (tinkerbell11) on Monday, August 8th at 5pm MT for a chat and challenge using this month's ScrapSimple Club. Did you know that every time you create a layout with the ScrapSimple Club and upload it into the ScrapSimple Club Gallery you could be chosen to be featured in the Newsletter and receive a prize? Join us for the chat so we can encourage and inspire you and help with any questions that you may have. Let's get those ScrapSimple Club layouts done and uploaded!

div

Journaling Challenge Chat
Monday, August 8th - 6:00PM MDT

Join Carla (CRS) and Lei (Bride) for a Journaling Chat at 6pm MT on the second Monday of each month. Struggle to find the right words for your layouts? Are your layouts more decorative than descriptive of the moments you're trying to capture? Then you won't want to miss this chat - we'll have a special challenge to encourage you to journal on your pages more! See you there!

div

Sketch Challenge Crop
Tuesday, August 9th - 4:00PM MDT

It's time for the Sketch Challenge and Crop! Join Cheri (Cheri T) on Tuesday, August 9 at 4pm MT in the Scrap Girls Chat Room! Enjoy getting a little creative boost for your pages? Are you needing help getting started? Then this is the challenge for you! A few hours before the chat begins, I'll post a link for you to download the sketch. Use it as the starting point for your page; be inspired by the basic arrangement; flip things around or scraplift the whole thing hook, line, and sinker! All interpretations of the design are welcome and encouraged. Don't worry about any deadlines... post your layout when it works with your schedule. Hope to see you there!

All are welcome, new and long time members included. You do need to have Java installed on your computer to access the Live Chat.

Games

August Message Board Game: BINGO!

Join us for an exciting game of August BINGO on the Scrap Girls Forum!! Pick 25 words from the list provided and send them in an email to [email protected] with a subject line that says "BINGO CARD - your Scrap Girls Message Board username" by Monday August 1st (Midnight MDT) in order to play in the first round. The first round will begin on Tuesday, August 2nd. If you miss the first round deadline, you can still play! Just send in your BINGO card at any time during the month, and you'll be eligible to begin playing when the next new round starts.

Each day (Monday through Saturday), a member of the Welcoming Committee will call five random words from the BINGO list. Match just 15 of those words to win a BINGO. You must be first to call "BINGO!" in the game thread to win that round. After a winner is called, the boards will be cleared and a new round will begin the following day.

Each winner will receive a $5 Gift Certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique! We like to see lots of winners, so please remember that each person can only win one round during the month. Have fun!

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

Contests

August Monthly Layout Contest: The temperatures are hot, and staying cool is a must! Water is a priority in the summer heat! For the August Layout Contest, we'd love to see your layouts featuring water! Dig out those photos of the kids in the pool, the family on a boat ride, or even a waterfall! Journaling about what water means to you will help make this layout more meaningful to you in the future. Post your layouts in the August Monthly Layout Gallery before Midnight MT on August 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!

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!
