Big Things. Little Things. Which Makes the Biggest Difference?

Hand-drawn cartoon by Rozanne Paxman

"The occasional slubs, inconsistencies, and gentle shadings are inherent to the fabric. They should not be regarded as defects. They are characteristic of the fine yarns, which give this fabric its beauty and dramatic texture."

Have you ever noticed that prayers are sometimes answered in unusual ways? The night before I found the tag containing this bit of wisdom on the floor, I had been on my knees begging for forgiveness for an enormous laundry list of flaws. I felt overcome with my inability to improve because most of the issues seem to be associated with my personality. And changing your personality is hard – if not impossible.

The assurance I needed had fallen off some unknown garment. Since I hadn't purchased clothing for some time, I had no idea how it came to be placed in my path as I walked across my bathroom floor.

I believe it was placed there by some unseen hand. "Your occasional slubs, inconsistencies, and gentle shadows are inherent to your nature," the tag instructed. "They should not be regarded as defects. They are characteristic of the fine fabric, which gives your soul its beauty and dramatic texture."

A prayer had been answered, and once again, I was assured that I am loved and understood – even in my imperfect state.

Want to read more of Ro's muses? Check out her blog at http://ropaxman.com! She invites you to swing by and say, "Howdy!" She looks forward to talking to you!

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.

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 May 16th, we'll do a surprise color challenge! Create a layout predominantly using a color to be chosen by the group at the beginning of the crop!

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!

Heritage Crop & Chat

Do you have boxes of heritage photos just waiting to be restored and scrapped? Are there family stories just waiting for you to write down and preserve? Then this is the crop for you! Join April (April Showers) at 6pm MT for the Heritage Crop and Chat! We'll help you get motivated to scrap those heritage photos and record your family stories for future generations to enjoy. This month we'll show you how you can use paper templates like ScrapSimple Paper Templates: Joyous with styles like ScrapSimple Tools - Styles: Grungalicious 8501 Super Biggie to dress up your background papers.

Games

May's Forum Game: Boutique Alphabet Game!

The Boutique Alphabet Game is back! Do you remember playing the game "I am going on a _____ hunt and bringing..." where each player listed items starting with a specific letter? We are playing a similar game on the Scrap Girls Forum during the month of May. Each day except Sundays, a team member will post a new theme and starting letter in the game thread. Members then will search the Scrap Girls Boutique for a product that fits the theme and post it in the game thread. Entries are to follow the alphabet starting with the letter posted with the theme each day. Only one product per letter per round will be counted and products may not be used more than once. Collections and their individual parts count as one product. Time stamps will be used to determine credit in the case of duplicate letter or product posts. There is a limit of three game posts per person each day and another player must post before posting again. Member names will be added to a drawing based on the number of qualified product links posted in the thread.

Prizes will be awarded at the end of the month and winners will be announced in the June 9th Newsletter. Gift certificates will be awarded as follows: $15 SG Gift Certificate for first place, $10 SG Gift Certificate for second place and a $5 SG Gift Certificate for third place.

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

Contests

May Monthly Layout Contest: May is a big month in the northern hemisphere for flowers. For this month's layout contest, we're going to give a little twist on the usual flower photos. We want you to try your hand at extreme close-ups. Be creative in point of view and angle. Even most point-and-shoot cameras have a close-up mode. Do the best you can with the equipment you have and scrap a layout with a photo or two – or three. Your submission will be judged on its merit as a layout, not necessarily the photography. Post your layouts in the May Monthly Layout Gallery before Midnight MDT on May 31st. Be sure to list your layout's product credits in the description or under the EXIF Properties. Two layouts will be selected to win 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!
