    Designer Intials

    That is the list. I haven't updated it since February, but I'll put a new update on my to-do list.
  5. Today's Forum Game is "I Spy" To play, read the prompt in the last post, find a kit in the shop that has that item in it, and post a preview of the kit in your post, then leave a new prompt. This game will run until midnight Thursday. I will pick a random player to win a $5.00 gift certificate. Have fun! This is how to play: If the prompt is "I spy an umbrella," go to the shop and find one in a kit. I used the search and there were lots. I just copied the image from the shop and pasted it in here. If you double click on the image after you paste it, you can make it smaller. I entered 300 in the box. Now, I leave a new prompt. I spy a bird.

    Wednesday - I Spy Game

    The game ended last night, but I got busy doing other things and didn't come check on it. I'll post the winner after I finish and post today's game!
  9. Finally decided which new laptop to buy! I'm excited for the 4K touch screen. It won't be here for a few weeks, so it is a good thing I have other options. :D

  10. I just added the September Forum Game winners to the Weekly Winners post. Sorry for the delay!

  11. *1. Night owl - it is my natural tendency, but my husband usually reminds me to go to bed earlier. *2. Believe in ghosts - not the scary kind though 3. Do you have a movie you watch over and over? When I was on bed rest while expecting, I watched a lot of Cinderella with my then two year old Cathrine, but I don't generally like to re-watch movies. *4. Like spicy food - I like it spicy, but don't really enjoy things with much after-burn *5. Had surgery - just a little tumor removed from my index finger 6. Have a tattoo 7. Served on Jury Duty - I get selected, but they always let me go before the trial starts. *8. Remember your Kindergarten teacher’s name - Mrs. Stewart isn't around anymore, but she gave me a wedding present and my mom kept in contact with her for ages. 9. Been fired 10. Lived in more than 3 states - just three - California, Utah ( I went to BYU) and Oregon 11. Like coffee *12. Went on a vacation this year 13. Television Junkie - I would much rather read a book *14. Still talk to High School best friend - does Facebook count? If so, then yes. 15. Afraid of Dentist - never - my daughter is a dentist, so that would be awkward. 16. Snuck into a movie *17. Been on TV or the radio *18. Stayed awake for 24 hours 19. Was a guest of honor at a surprise party *20. Read a book in a day - can't count how many.

    Family Photos

    I think this may be my first layout showing Amelia, the newest grandbaby. It was taken last July when she was one week old. A Grand Life Collection I did this layout on my daughter's tablet, so I'll need to get it off my EHD to see which fonts I used. Thanks for looking!

    September Challenge Chase

    It counts because you posted it the gallery in September. Your post wasn't removed from this thread - and if it hadn't counted, I would have let you know. Perhaps you just didn't click the "submit Reply" button. I do that more often than I'd like to admit.

    September Challenge Chase

    I've added the Challenge Chase Tracker. Just getting back into the swing of things after a fun week with all the kids and grandkids. And, no, I didn't get enough photos, or even one photo of all 8 of them together. I really did double check the posts for those two missing first layouts.
