  1. I did this years ago but thanks for the reminder. I need to make some as a gift for a friend.
  2. I agree, good job and very cool to watch your page evolve before our eyes.
  3. wow, a wealth of interesting information here, ladies! A-M, you are the bees knees when it comes to researching answers for folks.
  4. I'm in, for what it's worth, and hopefully I don't have the printing issues I've had in the past so mine will actually be hybrid. When's the "mail-by" date?
  5. Your girls are growing up! Lovely pages and photos, Carla. Well done!
  6. I have not baked 70 gingerbread houses - or one, for that matter, but I have made 16 nut rolls in one day!
  7. I would enjoy learning more about selection tools and masks as well. Also I've never figured out a reason to use the blur, dodge, burn, etc. tools (and how they differ from layer styles of the same name). Also actions. Actions scare me!
  8. my car wouldn't start today so i decided to just have a quiet NYE at home. ordered Chinese delivery and oops - ate the fortune cookie - fortune and all! :o

      My car wont start either. Evelyn, bless her 3 year old heart, played with the inside light, i did not realize it was left on. 2 days. Dead battery.

      So sorry, Dianne - hope it gets working soon.  Happy New Year to you!

  9. wow, that's really a great tip on recoloring there.
  10. this is really a sweet photo and Mikelle, you did a lovely job here showing it off!
  11. I have been to Ireland but I've never been to Italy . . . yet!
  12. Any bullet journalers out there? trying this for 2018. I like the idea of making the pages as I go.

      I use a Filofax for planning, and love that it keeps my lists all in one place so I don't lose them. The bullet journaling concept is really cool, I just don't want to spend the time making all the boxes for my pages. I'm sure it gets fast once you get a system. The class I took suggested that when you make mistakes, you just glue two pages together and move on. I'm a little too OCD for that. That is why I'm a ring binder girl. ;)

      I read this thread last night, then had to look up "bullet journaling" - hadn't heard of it before.  After reading about it, I did order some very simple notebooks to try it out.  I've essentially been doing bullet journaling for a while already, at work; I've got a lined journal I bought at a bookstore, where I just have different pages of information - one a list of pager numbers for the surgeons I work with, one a list of passwords (sssssshhhhh... I can't keep track otherwise), my on-going to-do list, a list of cases that would make good teaching cases, etc.  I do like the freedom of it, makes sense to try using it in my home life, too.  And it could help with scrapping.

      i'm a little OCD too, April. We'll see how this goes. I like the idea of using an index in front, and i'm going to keep my lists/collections in the back. what do I have to lose to try it. 

  13. that's very cute actually! and perfect for a layout. love the grunge look. well done!
  14. what a fascinating story and you've illustrated it here so beautiful. I especially love the poppies towards the front.
  15. That song came to mind as well. Love the way you wove so many elements together here - great job.
