You Speak Out

The First Day of School is Coming Up Fast

The first day of school is coming up fast,
The flurry of buying supplies, over, I hope.
The energy, kid energy, both positive and negative is surging.

I wonder what my days will be like, again, with a single little one toddling around.
At times, a quiet house.
Little blocks, board books, and new words.
Exploring. Lots of exploring.
Long naps for Elmo and Pink Bear with their beloved.
I hope they are long, even if it's just one.

Could I have time to create?
Only if I buy up the moments and choose wisely.

Then comes the rushing sound of students returning.
Backpacks and lunch bags trailing behind.
There are stories to share, both of victories as well as wounds.
School projects and field trips and homework.
The first day is coming up fast.
Take a deep breath.
Ready. Set. Go!

- Cheryl

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.

Special Event

Scrap Girls' 7th Anniversary Party!

Celebrate Scrap Girls' 7th Anniversary by collecting our special edition, professionally designed, two-page digital scrapbooking kits. We call them Super 7 Spread kits! With each Super 7 Spread, you will receive two layered PSD* files - the left-side and the right-side of the double-page layout. Just open the files, insert your photos, add your journaling, and you're ready to go! Each kit also includes the seven files used to create the layout separately so that you can create even more looks!

A few examples of the brand new Super 7 Spread kits...

Super 7 Spread by Rozanne Paxman Super 7 Spread by Brandy Hackman Super 7 Spread by Andrea Trump
Super 7 Spread by Jan Ransley Super 7 Spread by Laura Louie Super 7 Spread by Melissa Renfro

Commercial license versions of Super 7 Spread by Rozanne Paxman are also available.

*Note: PSD files are layered files used in Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Paint Shop Pro and certain other software packages. If your particular software title does not use the PSD file type to create layouts, don't worry! We have also included individual JPG and PNG files, which are accepted by most software titles commonly used by digital scrapbookers.

Games

October Message Board Game: Product Picks

Join us for a new game in October, where we encourage you to stroll through the aisles of the boutique and do a little window shopping!

Each Monday through Saturday in October, a member of the Welcoming Committee will post the name of one or two product designers in the Product Picks game thread. You will then head to the Scrap Girls Boutique and navigate to that particular designer's product pages. Choose any of their products (your favorite product, one you like, or one you wish you owned), then head over to the Product Picks game thread and share the product name, Boutique link, and a brief explanation of why you chose that product.

At the end of the month, members who haves posted links to 42 products (one for each designer) will be entered in a drawing for one of three $10 Gift Certificates. Members who have posted links to 16-41 products will be entered in a drawing for one of two $5 Gift Certificates. And members who have posted links to 10-15 products will be entered in a drawing for one of two $3 Gift Certificates.

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