Switch Points

The last few years have brought many challenges for our family and many of our friends. Things that we had been able to take for granted for years have changed and are no longer an option. Many of the families that I know have been discouraged and confused about what the future will hold for them.

I have been reading a wonderful book about having hope in our lives. There was one quote that really stood out to me and helped me to put into perspective what we (and possibly you) have been experiencing. The quote by author Gerald Lund says:

There are times in life that may seem trivial when they happen, but as the years roll on, they prove to have been like the switch points on a railway line. In a fast-moving train, you are hardly aware of passing over those points where two lines are joined, separated by no more than an inch or two of space. Yet, depending on how the switch is thrown, you will end up in destinations as divergent as New York or Los Angeles.

I think that we experienced one of those subtle switch points, and our lives are headed in a different direction. If I can view this as a new chapter, a new adventure with new friends, new experiences, and new opportunities, rather than longing for things as they once were, I feel sure things will seem more hopeful. In fact, they already do.

I know this is a different type of digital scrapbooking layout, but it seemed just right to me at this moment. Sometimes we want to contemplate rather than decorate. Maybe you would enjoy doing a layout that makes visual art out of how you are feeling today.

Favorite Product I've Designed:

So Big Collection Biggie
So Big Collection Biggie

The So Big Collection Biggie is one of my favorite products that I have designed. The bright colors are cheerful, and the papers and embellishments work well for boys, girls, men, or women. It just makes me happy to look at layouts made from this collection.

Games

June's Forum Game: Re-JUNE-venate!

We helped you jumpstart your January and now it's time to re-JUNE-venate your focus on scrapbooking! Join us on the Scrap Girls Forum for "Re-JUNE-venate!" This is a game and challenge that focuses on taking time to scrapbook regularly despite the little "speedbumps" of life. When the month is over you'll have completed several layouts and been treated to some fun along the way.

A Welcoming Committee Member will post a task each Monday through Saturday from June 1-30. The tasks will be formatted in a LARGE PURPLE FONT for ease of locating them in the game thread as it grows. Some tasks will require Forum participation, email responses or gallery posting. Read each daily task carefully to see what is required of you.

Those who complete all the required tasks and submit or post required participation by 11:59pm EDT on June 30th will be entered in a drawing to win one of three $10 Gift Certificates to the Scrap Girls Boutique! Those who complete all the layouts will be entered in a drawing to win one of two $5 Gift Certificates. Each person who completes a layout will be entered – once for each completed challenge page- into a drawing for one of three $3 Gift Certificates.

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