  3. Thanks! If I dug a little deeper, I could possibly figure out who she is by the initials. I just didn't have time to dig into my great-great grandmother's papers and photo albums.
  4. It is a Victorian drinking fountain. It was placed on the sand, so it wasn't plumbed. Mrs. C.W.B.'s journaling, which is on the paper strip, reads "taking a drink of Eggnog on a November day 1898."
  5. This photo is from an album given to my great great grandmother after a visit with her in 1898. The book has witty subtitles but not a single name and is signed Mrs. C.W.B. It helps me remember why I put names and dates on my pages! Thanks for looking. Page uses Silvia Romeo's November Club: New Beginnings
  6. Ah, the memories. Mika was a foreign exchange student from Japan who spent the school year with us. I'm the one standing. Thanks for looking!
  7. I've updated the Challenge Chase Tracker.
  8. December Challenges: Join us for a month of challenges (and prizes) beginning December 6th. Every Tuesday and Saturday, a new challenge will be posted in our Forum. You can find them in the Challenges section of the forum. I will add links to the individual challenges at the bottom of this post to make them easier for you to find. Everyone who participates in that challenge will have a chance to win a $5 gift certificate; participate in all 6 challenges through December 24th and you'll be automatically entered in the drawing for a $25 Gift Certificate. Winners will be posted on the forum in the Weekly Winner Threads. You have until midnight December 31st to complete your layouts. Please make a post in this thread to let me know you're participating. As you finish each layout, edit your post and add a link to your layout (just a link is fine, I will look at the image in the gallery). Post your challenge layouts in the regular Weekly Newsletter Challenge or Weekend Wildcard Challenge Galleries.

  9. It's time for our 17th Annual ScrapGirls Cookie Exchange and you're invited! We have a special, free recipe card template to help you get started, but don’t feel obligated to use it. We love cookies, and we love getting new cookie recipes to try, so all participants will receive a sweet little treat just for joining in. Here's how to join in the fun: Design a 4x6-inch recipe card (at 300dpi) using mostly Scrap Girls products. Use one of your favorite holiday cookie, candy, or sweet treat recipes - something "tried and true" is preferred. All skill levels are encouraged to participate! If this is your very first time to try your hand at digital scrapbooking or if you’re a pro, please join in the fun! When you design your card, avoid putting any text within ¼ inch of the edges. Anything close to the edges can get cut off when the card is printed. Place your name or Scrap Girls Forum username somewhere on the recipe card (small text is fine). Save your design as a JPG file, with a file name that includes your name or ScrapGirls Forum user name (for example, my file might be called aprilshowers_gingercrinkles.jpg.) We want to know who made what! Attach your card to an email and send it to cookieexchange@scrapgirls.com. Please include your first and last name in the body of your email. A confirmation will be emailed to each person who sends a recipe card so they know their card was received. Please allow 48 hours for confirmation. Cards MUST be received by Midnight (ET) on Tuesday, December 13th. Unfortunately, if you don't send in a recipe card, you will not be able to get a copy of all the cards. No exceptions. Your recipe card is your ticket to all the fun! We ask that you not post your recipe card in the gallery, Facebook, or anywhere else until the swap is over. This way, we can all be surprised by the cards we get! You can post your own card in the Gallery or anywhere else any time after December 14th. Please don’t sell or give away any of the finished cards on blogs, emails, etc. You may print some or all the recipe cards as a gift for someone you know personally, but wide-scale distribution or sale is not allowed, as per our commercial use terms, which can be read in full here. You can submit more than one card, if you wish - the more the merrier! On December 15th, each participant will receive the links (via email - the same way that links come when you buy Scrap Girls products) to download the recipe card files. Participants will need to include their First Name, Last Name and email address for us to send them the recipes.
