Member of the Month Image

Member of the Month: Diane

Diane
Scrap Girls' Member of the Month - May 2012
Member Name: Florida granny

1. What program do you use to do your digital scrapbooking?

Adobe Photoshop Elements 9

2. Are you a Mac or a PC?

I'm a PC user.

3. Tell us the make and model of digital camera that you use.

Canon PowerShot A720IS. I use it as an aim-and-shoot but am slowly learning what all the buttons are for. I also have a little camera that goes underwater - a Fuji Z33WP in lime green.

4. Name one thing that every beginning digital scrapbooker should know.

Be patient with yourself. Learn one thing at a time. If you like how your layout looks, it's perfect!

5. If you could be transformed into a digital scrapbooking embellishment, what would you choose and why?

I knew this question was coming, but it's still a tough one. I'll go with "glitter", because glitter might not be noticed at first on a layout, but it adds some sparkle and life. It's my goal to add a touch of sparkle to the galleries by enjoying and leaving love on layouts.

6. What time of day do you find that you do your best scrapbooking?

The middle of the day when my darling husband is out working or playing golf.

7. What is your favorite snack?

I'm an Olympic-caliber snacker, so anything sweet or salty. If I have to name just one, I'll say Trail Mix.

8. What is your least favorite household chore?

Washing windows. Ugh.

9. Finish this sentence. "I couldn't live without..."

My family and their love. After that, I'll say "being near water." I've been close to the Atlantic Ocean (and now Gulf of Mexico) my whole life. It's a part of me.

10. What's your current favorite layout that you've done?

East Coast High Noon Crop
Wednesday, May 23rd - 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 May 23rd, we'll do a font challenge! Create a layout on any theme, any topic, and any colors - using multiple fonts - at least three different fonts! Mix it up!

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!

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!
