      I missed it too. I took 3 of my DGS(s) to Fall Fun day at our park. I think it's always the same day as DSD.

  4. I’m stuck in Newark airport.  Which is actually where I started out 8 ½ hours ago.  Delay. Delay again. On plane sat an hour.  Moved toward runway sat another hour.    Then pilot announced route to Rochester closed due to weather.   Awhile later they found another route but it was lower and longer so we didn’t have enough fuel.  Plus they were receiving notifications about our plane so it needed to be serviced.   So that flight was cancelled and all the rest tonight and tomorrow are full. So now they are bussing all of us to Rochester and the bus won’t get here til 9:30 pm. A 5 hour drive so we should be in around 3am or so......   I won’t even tell you about the outside walking and ramps and stairs to get to a bus to get to the plane in the first place. And then do it all again to come back..  Meanwhile the website announced us as landed in Rochester!I hope I get there by 4:30 tomorrow for the wedding.

      lovely photo and looks like you had nice weather as well. Glad your trip trip home went well. It will certainly be a memory to scrap in more ways than one :)

      I DID love Ngaire and Dave and we talked about you Jane and how I hoped one day to visit New Zealand and both of you and to meet you one day.  I sure hope to see you here, that would be awesome!

      You can come and stay with us anytime Marilyn, your bedroom is waiting :)  the North and South Island are very different so it will feel like you have been on two very different holidays :)

      THANK, you Jane!   Ngaire did say that you each lived North/South but I didn’t realize it was so different!

      Thank you guys!  I had a low-key birthday, spent time with my family, plus Karlie had a couple of girls over for a sleepover last night.  I ate too much good food, to include cake, pasta carbonara, and garlic bread, made by DH - yum!

  13. Today is two years Jody died, so hard to believe.  Her boys are now 15 and 17½ and continuuing to grow into young men she would be proud of.  I’m grateful Darren keeps in touch.   She is sorely missed; it’s a hard day.  :(

      Yes!  It’s B-ack!  :D  I just have to get used to some new things since it was updated to Mohave OS.   And of course there’s always some glitches, but I’m happy it’s in my hands again.  :)

      Happy Scrapping!

  15. My laptop is at the computer hospital for a checkup and hopefully to install my new Wacom which had issues.  Hopefully I’ll be back on track soon but before that thank goodness for other devices.   Now if I could just scrap.... 😉

      Mikelle

      That sounds like torture!  For you, not being able to scrap, not for your computer.  Well, for your computer, too!  😂

  16. Merry Christmas to all ScrapGirls!

  17. 🎄  Angie just clarified that for December's Monthly Layout Contest and the chance to win a $20 Gift Certificate you must complete 6 December layouts (Newsletter and Weekend) by December 28th!   So get scrapping ScrapGirls!   You will automatically be entered if you complete and post all 6 by 12/28.  

    Remember that the individual Newsletter and Weekly Layout contests and a chance for a $5 Gift Certificate stays the same, but for that they must be posted by the weekend.   Good luck!:santa:

      I don't think so, I think the Monthly Contest is the Christmas themed challenges only.

    3. MariJ

      MariJ

      Yes, Carla is correct.   There are 6 Holiday Challenges along with another one on the 25th which will make 7 Holiday challenges, but you need only to complete 6 by Dec 28th to be eligible for the $20 GC.

  18. Don’t forget the sale ends tonight!   I’m off to browse the aisles and check out.  🛍️🛒

      I'm so sorry I missed this chat, I got back from grocery shopping in plenty time and my pc decided not to work, just would not power up. However, fiddled about with the connection and left it for a little while and presto... now i don't trust it.

      Thanks Debby, but doesn’t work, that just brought me to Yahoo mail.  I think you have to go from your newsletter to the “read in your browser” or something like that - to go to the web address.   THANK YOU, though.  :)

      I'll forward it to you

      Thanks Carla!  I can’t imagine what I did - whatever key I clicked must have been a total “delete” because it’s not even in my trash.  :(
