Scrap Girls' Member of the Month - April 2012
Member Name: luckyladybug
1. What program do you use to do your digital scrapbooking?
Adobe Photoshop Elements 9
2. Are you a Mac or a PC?
Totally PC. I'm Mac-challenged.
3. Tell us the make and model of digital camera that you use.
4. Name one thing that every beginning digital scrapbooker should know.
Make it your own! Scrapbooking is about capturing personal memories in a meaningful way. Examine how your work makes YOU feel - that is the true test of aesthetic expression.
5. If you could be transformed into a digital scrapbooking embellishment, what would you choose and why?
Oh, I'd be a ribbon! Bringing elements together, tying up loose ends, facilitating subtle continuity, and providing firm but gentle structure when needed.
6. What time of day do you find that you do your best scrapbooking?
Nighttime, after the boys go to bed. I scrap while my husband and I watch TV and visit.
7. What is your favorite snack?
Brownies! I have no willpower when it comes to ooey-gooey chocolate goodness!
8. What is your least favorite household chore?
Actually, I enjoy most household chores - I just don't like the way I can't seem to make them stick! I keep doing laundry and cooking meals, but my family just keeps showing up day after day wanting to wear clothes and eat food! I want to say, "Are you kidding me? Didn't I just feed you?" LOL!
9. Finish this sentence. "I couldn't live without..."
...LOVE. Loving and being loved is what it's all about.
10. What's your current favorite layout that you've done?

East Coast High Noon Crop
Wednesday, April 25th - 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 April 25th, we'll have an Alpha Challenge. Create a layout using at least one Alpha. It can be a ScrapSimple Alpha or one from a collection; it is your choice!
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!

April's Forum Game: BINGO!
Join us for an exciting game of Springtime BINGO on the Message Board Forum in April! Pick 25 words from the list provided in the forum game thread and send them in an email to [email protected] with a subject line that says "BINGO CARD - your Scrap Girls Message Board username" by Tuesday, April 3rd at Midnight MDT in order to play in the first round. The first round will begin on Wednesday, April 4th. 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, 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.

Two layouts will be selected to win a $10 Gift Certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique!
