  1. I have started and binned, and started and binned.... 4 TIMES!!!!!

    Not having any luck here, none of my pages look as good as the ones in the Gallery - no wonder they are all winners!

     

    Still trying, I WILL get this done!

    Jody, this is my lot in life way too often (note the absence of new LOs in my gallery over many months). I'm with Tiza…ALL your LO are amazing. Let it sit. Another time this will come together easily. :)


  2. Meanwhile...Over Scrap City the Mojo-sucking minion hoard had duplicated to nearly three times their original number. The citizens of Scrap City were running chaotically through the streets. The people's cries for help were barely audible over the monotonous din of the hoard. Many felt there was no hope. But one wise woman knew there must be help for them all. Penelope Paperscrapper had long been plagued by Nomojo and his minions. She had been smothered by cardstock, adhesives, decorative scissors and piles of embellishments to the point where she couldn't even begin to get her family's memories on the page. She was finally ready to make a change and set out to find an alternative. That's when the minions descended. She had heard that she could actually save her family's memories on her computer in beautiful scrap pages without all the clutter. And she was determined to find the solution despite the mind-numbing minion hoard. She...


  3. "SAAAAAAAAALYYYYYYY!" her mother's voice sang out from the tiara. "You have a visitor. He says his name is O.J. OMON and is a friend of yours. What a polite boy he is. And so handsome too." Sally thought for a moment. Her mother was always hoping she'd find a handsome young man for her to settle down with. But Sally didn't have a friend named O.J. OMON. She had a friends DJ, PJ, and TJ but no O.J. She notice the hair on Snip's back stand up and his tail swell to three times it's usual size. "O.J. OMON, my paw!" Snip hissed. "He's no friend. Spell that name backward, Sally, and you get.....NOMOJO!!!" Now the hair on Sally's arms was standing up too. Nomojo must have done some significant self-editing and embellishment, transforming himself into something he DEFINiTELY was not. And now he was at her house! "We know where he is NOW, Snip," Sally grinned. "This is our chance!"


  4. Sally, still amazed that Snip was actually talking to her, tried to focus on the page in the book in front of her. But for some reason she didn't need the book to tell her what to do. She was surprised to find that not only did she possess the superability to fly, but she now had SUPER SCRAPPING SKILLS. Instantaneously, her tiara diamond beamed a holographic screen in front of her. With lightning speed she created two Layer Masks: one for herself, the other for her feline sidekick. She clipped a mask to each of them, then grabbed a large round brush, set the color to black ("Black conceals, white reveals!" she heard ringing in her head) and brushed them into apparent invisibility. The Dynamic Brushed Duo were now ready to take on Nomojo. They set off to FIND and DELETE the crusty creativity crusher!


  5. ...noticed she still didn't have her cape on. No wonder she was feeling a little off-kilter. What good are pink go-go boots and a tiara if she didn't have the cape? She mustered all her strength lifting the oatmeal-laden spoon. With the precision of the Edge It Action on a selected object in PSE, Sally catapulted the enormous mass of oatmeal from the spoon directly into the eye holes of the sinister sucker's mask.


  6. ...No! she gasped. It couldn't be that! Saving Scrap City from the Mojo-sucker minions was important. But how could she do THAT to her baby sister? She is so innocent, so undefiled, so (she had to admit) sweet. How could she go against all her scruples, her compassion, and her family convictions and make her baby sister do this. But if she didn't, the transformation would be completed with no turning back. Sally knew what she had to do. She went to the kitchen, got a large spoon, plunged it deeply into her now-cold bowl of gloppy oatmeal and headed toward her sister.


  7. Thanks for bumping this up, Sara. It helped me fill in a few blanks. Blanks that I'm now kicking myself over. :hit-head-with-hammer: I won't say who or they might un-friend me. Sorry girls! :disappearing-smilie:

     

    There are a couple that I'm still uncertain about:

     

    ACU

    CRO

    DRO

    JRA

    RWB

     

    I have a feeling that one or two might be ones that I found somewhere else when I first started out. They look like SG naming, but I've only got one freebie for them.

     

    ACU - Armi Custodio

    CRO - Charlene Crowder

    DRO - Diane Rooney (former designer)

    JRA - Jan Ransley

    RWB - ?????????

  8. You'll never believe who showed up just in time for the end of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race? Yep, that sneaky (and might I say, smart) little monkey. He knows where all the fun is during the first couple of weeks of March! He's up here in Alaska enjoying our gorgeous weather and meeting all the dogs that are coming to town. He's made the rounds with us...and you'll never believe this...HE WAS ON TV!!!! Yep, he wouldn't miss being at the finish line when the winner crossed the line, so he came with the girls and I to see the finish of the FASTEST Iditarod in history. We managed to get a good spot....and directly in the line of view of the NBC camera (we had no idea). My DH looked at the footage with the girls today, and sure enough, there he is in the background with the girls while the WINNER came up the shoot to finish the race. So this little monkey is making the most of his visit to The Last Frontier. We'll be getting him on his way by early next week (don't want to miss all the festivities this weekend!). Just thought you'd all like to know that he's doing great and having a BLAST!

     

    Here's a pic of Huck at the Finish line on Tuesday morning after the Champion festivities (the winner, John Baker of Kotzebue Alaska, is behind him in the shadows!).
