You will receive in essence 20 templates - each template is included as a full 12 x 12 page as well as a slightly smaller page with a 3-ring attachment on the side like a traditional page protector.

Coming Home

It was early morning on July 10th, and I was trying to reason with myself for the umpteenth time to fall asleep. But despite a week of only four hours of sleep a night, I couldn't force my mind to quiet down. This shouldn't have come as a surprise after living with myself all these years. I can never sleep when I know something big is going to happen. You see, I was going home. Back to where I was born and raised, made many memories, and started my married life. I was moving my family from temperate California to wet and chilly Oregon.

The past couple of years had been hard for me and my family, my husband now completely disabled by his MS, with all the responsibility of supporting a family and running a household squarely on my shoulders. I did okay at first, rolled with the punches, and looked at everything in a glass-half-full kind of way. But over time, it wore me down and not having any family or friends close-by didn't help. I had no time to make friends and absolutely no time to myself. I felt things begin to unravel, a feeling I was not at all familiar with. It was always hard for me to admit that I needed anyone or any help, but it was time. It was time to go home.

I used to say that a person could never truly go back home, that home was where you landed. But my story has changed that for me. That morning of July 10th started out stressful with no sleep and then the movers showing up sick. At one point, the movers told us that they wouldn't be able to fit all our stuff in the truck, and so we began picking out things that we thought we could live without. In the end, everything fit except the kids’ bikes, and it was time to go. As I pulled out of the driveway for the last time, I was filled with fear.

Here I was with my four greatest accomplishments (my kids) and two cats, and I was going on absolutely no sleep for the past 48 hours! We had a 10-hour drive ahead of us, and I didn't know how I was going to make it. I was already having a hard time keeping my eyes open. We had several interesting stops along the way, but I won't bore you with all the details.

Somehow I managed to stay awake. Crossing the state line into Oregon brought on a feeling I can't really describe, almost like a certain freedom. That seems like an odd feeling to have, but maybe I just don't know where that fits into my story yet. From then on, it was a countdown to each city on our journey until the highway signs started to list our destination. When I drove into town for the first time in almost 10 years, I knew I was home and that I had made the right decision. I couldn't wait to share where I grew up with my kids and be surrounded by the people we know and love.

Now, here we are, and it's a new year. Although I still have all the responsibilities I had before I came back, I don't feel so alone in all of it. I have come home in a glass-half-full kind of way.

From Syndee:
    "I love this kit because I drew or hand-made and painted many of the elements and paper textures in it and then scanned them in to make the digital scrapbooking versions. My daughter, Kailey, helped by creating the hand-cut house, owl, and flowers for me to paint and decorate. Despite the ease of creating digitally, I still love to get my hands all messy with paint and glue! I really wanted to design a kit that would be perfect for art journal pages, and I created an 8.5x11-inch version so that the pages could easily be printed out on a home printer."

Join April (April Showers) each Wednesday at 12 Noon ET for the 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 January 9th we'll do a Circle Challenge. Create a page using at least one circle. It can be a circular embellishment, polka-dots, brads- 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!

Games

January's Forum Game: Jumpstart January!

It's time to kick off the new year with some fun and a focus on scrapbooking! Join us on Scrap Girls Forum for "Jumpstart January!" 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 January 1-31. 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 message board 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 11:59 pm (ET) January 31st 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.
