The Family Photographer

Growing up, my dad was the family photographer. There are volumes of photo albums on the bookshelf in his home office, organized by date. Every time I go home, I love paging through these books as I recall happy memories of childhood - birthday parties, family vacations, and soccer championships. The only thing missing from these albums is my dad himself. Because he always took the photos, he rarely appears in these precious albums.

Fast forward to today. I've followed in my dad's footsteps, becoming the family photographer for my own little clan. At family gatherings, we're often called the paparazzi as he and I document memories using our twin Nikon D40s. Now I have volumes of photo albums - and scrapbooks - on the bookshelves in my home, and I hope that someday my children will look through them and happily reminisce about their childhood.

But now, my dad has been diagnosed with cancer, and more than ever, I'm thankful that I have taken many, many photos of him. As I put together his CaringBridge page, I filled it with photos of him wrestling with my kids, driving his speedboat, restoring his antique tractors, and enjoying quiet moments with family. And I'm reminded that I need to put myself in front of the camera from time to time - so that years from now, my children will be able to reminisce about the special times we've had together, too.

- Kara Swanson

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!

What's Happening at Scrap Girls

Crops and Chats

Swap Crop Chat
Saturday, September 24th - 6:00PM MDT

It's time for the Swap Crop Chat with Lei (Bride) and Carla (CRS)! We've done the swapping and created the layouts; now it's time to chat about all the gorgeous layouts! I don't know what it is, but these swaps bring out the best in everyone. This is the time to chat about the theme and the beautiful layouts and to learn about the swap crop if you haven't participated before. We'll brainstorm a theme for next month, too! If you haven't done so, you can check out past swaps in the Swap Crop Gallery!

div

Life Moments Chat
Tuesday, September 27th - 2:00PM MDT

Join Pat (PBarnes) in the chat room at 2pm MT for a Life Moments Chat. These chats are meant to get you inspired to scrap about yourself. A theme will be posted earlier in the day to help you get started.

div

Sketch Challenge Crop
Tuesday, September 27th - 6:00PM MDT

It's time for the Sketch Challenge and Crop! Join Cheri (Cheri T) on Tuesday, September 27 at 6pm MT in the Scrap Girls Chat Room! Enjoy getting a little creative boost for your pages? Do you need help getting started? Then this is the challenge for you! A few hours before the chat begins, Cheri will 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!

div

New Member Chat
Tuesday, September 27th - 7:00PM MDT

Join Pat (PBarnes) and Theresa (tiza126) for the New Member Chat at 7pm MT in the Live Chat room lobby. This is a great place to ask questions about getting around the Scrap Girls site or about digital scrapbooking in general - and a great place to make some new friends. All are welcome, new and long time members included. You do need to have Java installed on your computer to access the Live Chat.

div

East Coast High Noon Crop
Wednesday, September 28th - 10:00AM MDT

Join April (April Showers) each Wednesday at 10am MT for the East Coast High Noon Crop. All coasts and time zones are welcome! These crops are designed to allow you to work on your own photos and themes simply giving participants a one hour goal and a fun, new challenge each week. On September 28th, we'll be doing a Brush Challenge. Try to use at least two brushes in your layout. Create your layout and upload it to the special High Noon Crop Gallery. You'll be amazed what you can get done in just one hour, but there is no High Noon Sheriff timing you! Hope to see you in the chat room!

div

Speed Scrap Crop
Wednesday, September 28th - 6:00PM MDT

It's time for some Speed! Join Carla (CRS) and Shannon (tinkerbell11) at 6pm MT for the Speed Scrap Crop! We'll give you some tasks spread out over an hour, and you create the layout! You can check out some of the past Crops in the Speed Scrap Gallery!

Games

September Message Board Game: Posting Contest!

It's that time again - Posting Contest time! This is where you are rewarded for your flying fingers and chattiness. The Contest will run from September 1st when we post the thread to September 30th at 12:00 Midnight (MST).

To enter the Message Board Posting Challenge, you MUST reply in the game thread with your CURRENT post count. This is the number under your Avatar that shows when you post. (NOTE: Do not post the number found on your profile; it is a different number that is calculated differently.) During the month, chat your fingers off! At Midnight on September 30th, we will calculate your post count based on the numbers posted in the original thread.

Members with Message Board posts over 50 will be put in a drawing for a $5 Scrap Girls Gift Certificate. Members with Message Board posts over 200 will be put in a drawing for both the $5 Scrap Girls Gift Certificate and a $10 Scrap Girls Gift Certificate. Members with Message Board posts over 400 will be put in a drawing for a $15 Scrap Girls Gift Certificate, as well as the $5 and $10 Gift Certificates.

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

Or how about when you learned to use your digital scrapbooking software? Share those layouts in the September Monthly Layout Gallery before Midnight MT on September 30th. Be sure to list your credits in the description or under the EXIF Properties. Two layouts will be selected to win a $10 Gift Card 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!
