  1. Hi Mikelle, No problem...Sunday or Monday would be fine. Have a great day.
  2. Good afternoon, Thank you for the information regarding Mikella being on vacation. I was beginning to worry since I wasn't the only who couldn't reach her. Have a great day. Linda
  3. Hi Anne, I thought the problem was on my end so I re-booted my system and tried again with the same error message. it must be a "glitch" with SG's new system but it's nice to know I'm not the only one .
  4. Hi Mikelle, I tried to send this message to you but got this error message that says "Mikelle cannot receive messages." Hi Mikelle, Please allow me to introduce myself to you, my name is Linda Higgins. I'll be perfectly honest this is my first Swap Challenge. I understand that I will receive a photo or photos from you to design a layout. Since Kelly is listed below me, I will send my photo or photos to Kelly to use in a layout. I am looking forward to participating in this Swap Challenge. My email address is Have a great weekend! Linda
  5. Good afternoon, I've never participated in a swap challenge before but would like to give this a try... So please count me in. Thanks!
  6. Hi...this is the first time I'm reading about this challenge. Is it possible to start this challenge late and do you start from Day 1 and just catch up?
  7. I love all the different pictures...
  8. I just got my home network up and running last night after switching from a dial-up to FIOS now that it is in my area. Anyway, saw this challenge and thought I would share one of my favorite reflections pictures of the Twin Towers taken (8-18-98) when a couple of fellow rugby players asked for a tour of NYC by land and water.
  9. I'm sure we all know someone (maybe yourself) who has broken down on the highway with a flat tire. I hope you like the following... Yesterday I had a flat tire on the interstate. So I eased my car over to the shoulder of the road, carefully get out of the car and open the trunk. I took out 2 cardboard men, unfolded them and stood them at the rear of my car facing oncoming traffic. They look so life like you wouldn't believe it! They are in trench coats exposing their nude bodies to the approaching drivers. To my surprise, cars start slowing down looking at my lifelike men which made it safer for me to work at the side of the road. And of course,traffic starts backing up. Everybody is tooting their horns and waving like crazy. It wasn't long before a state trooper pulls up behind me. He gets out of his car and starts walking towards me.. I could tell he was not a happy camper! 'What's going on here? ' 'My car has a flat tire', I said calmly.. 'Well, what are those obscene cardboard men doing here by the road? ' I couldn't believe that he didn't know. So I told him,'Helloooooo, those are my emergency flashers!'
  10. Good afternoon, I have a quick question...I'm scrapping at the 8.5x11 size because my family finds that size easier to keep and store. My question is does a LO have to be a 12x12 in order to post it to the Gallery? Thank you for any assistance you can provide me. Have a great afternoon!

      Hi Linda. I scrap in International Paper size A4 for the same reason. Posting to the gallery is no problem.

      I tend to use 12 x 12,  I tend to use  various sizes for my personal use depending on what I want to use it for. I also use smaller sizes for when I making cards and I have always been able to post without any probs.

      Good morning,

      Thank you all so much for answering my question. Please know that I truly appreciate each one of you for taking the time to respond. 


  11. Good evening, I was backing up some of my older folders and came across the suggested organization list that Ro had given to anyone who was interested in it. I remember a couple weeks ago someone (sorry I don't remember who it was) was asking if anyone remembered how the organization of supplies was written. If anybody is interested, please let me know. Have great evening! :D

      Hi,   no problem...maybe it will help someone.

  12. What do I love about digital scrapbooking… Well, for one thing the supplies are easier to store and keep organized. I love that you can purchase a template and use it over and over again in different ways by changing colors, adding or deleting additional layers, adding text, shapes the possibilities are endless. Some of you are aware that I am a quadriplegic as a result of a car accident which means I no longer have use of my hands. I use a mouthstick to type one letter at a time. After the accident I was still paper scrapping with the help of others placing items on my layouts but that meant I would only ask for help when I knew others had time. I didn't know about digital scrapbooking until I was sitting in my wheelchair at the checkout line at my local BJ's. Lucky for me that day the craft type magazines were lower on the rack even with my eyesight. I bought one of those magazines and read all I could about digital scrapbooking and realized this was for me. I ended up doing searches on the Internet about digital scrapbooking and one of the websites that popped up was Scrap Girls. Scrap Girls is priceless to me because of the great products in the store, the tutorials that are or offered and most of all because of the designers and fellow scrappers who are always willing to help me no matter what my questions have been. So, the real reason I love digital scrapbooking is because it allows me the freedom to actually create the pages myself.
  13. Sounds like a fun day...count me in...maybe now I'll learn how to create a signature and a blinkie!
  14. Hi...I've been trying to upload to the Gallery this morning but am having a problem. I don't post much so I have a I save Recipe card as jpeg @ 300 dpi? Thanks
  15. I remember the first time I met Jody…I didn’t know much about digital scrapbooking and even less about journaling. I saw a post announcing a SG Chat that was about journaling and thought I would stop in. As soon as I entered the chat area Jody and Marilyn greeted me like I had been coming to the chat area for months. The truth was, it was my very first time and I never felt as welcomed as I did that day by Jody and Marilyn. I must admit the speed in the chat room had me looking like a deer caught up in headlights! All of a sudden I got a private message from Jody asking if I was okay because I wasn’t participating. When I explained I was a quadriplegic as a result of a car accident and I had to use a mouthstick to type one letter at a time she said “don’t worry because we are here to help each other”. Those 10 words she spoke that day epitomized the type of person Jody was and how she was always kind, supportive and helpful. I admire her creativity, her mastery of the different types of software and her ability to simplify instructions regarding different techniques she used in creating her layouts. Jody inspired me to think “outside the box” and to have fun when creating layouts. To Darren, Callen, Aiden and Jody’s Friends may you find some comfort in these words by David Harkins. Remember Me Do not shed tears when I have gone but smile instead because I have lived. Do not shut your eyes and pray to God that I'll come back but open your eyes and see all that I have left behind. I know your heart will be empty because you cannot see me but still I want you to be full of the love we shared. You can turn your back on tomorrow and live only for yesterday or you can be happy for tomorrow because of what happened between us yesterday. You can remember me and grieve that I have gone or you can cherish my memory and let it live on. You can cry and lose yourself, become distraught and turn your back on the world or you can do what I want - smile, wipe away the tears, learn to love again and go on.
