      Two of my kids use my SmugMug albums to store their photos, so once they upload them, I have easy access to them. Thomas gave me the log-in for his server, but wow, that boy takes a bazillion photos. And Cathrine keeps hers on One Drive, which I have access to, but I need to figure out my Microsoft log-in. :D

      Amazing, it sure feels good completing a project.

  5. I got restarted on my 2017 PL pages on INSD. I've done 34 pages this month and am into November!

      Wow, you've been working like crazy! Good for you getting all those pages done.

      I made templates from previous years pages that I liked, and I've been reusing clusters as well. I select all the layers, copy them, then open a new file and it is just the right size for the cluster. I save it as a .tiff file so I can still move things around for my new page. It makes the pages go together fairly fast.

      Wow, that’s a great plan and way to work.   I like that it’s fast - I spend way too much (mostly unnecessary time on these pages and think too much!).

  6. I may not have gotten any of the Challenge layouts completed for iNSD, but it did get me moving on my 2017 Project Life pages. I'm up to July! That is 11 weeks more than I had before.

  10. While getting ready for our party last night, Bob asked where the 2017 album was.... I haven't finished it yet. Guess I'd better get scrapping.

      Ummmmm.....  Actually I was thinking that we were in 2017.   Should I have admitted that?  😱

      I'm definitely not ready for it to be 2019.

      Whew, I rushed to do one now hoping that April was still sleeping and when I came to check the email address I saw the 14th, so I still have time for more!  :)

      I try to avoid getting up before 6 am. I'll be in the midst of my Christmas Party when the deadline hits, so I won't be zipping them up and sending them to Angie until I'm back from the gym Saturday morning.

    4. Mikelle

      I'll try to get it sent by Friday evening, if not earlier.  I've made the cookies and taken photos, just have to do the card.  My ODD's 12th birthday is today, so it's been a whirlwind the past few days (she had a sleepover last weekend).

  12. Thanks for joining in all the Anniversary Week fun.

      I loved it even though the battleship game was a bit of a struggle for me lol and then I kept getting dumped out of the chat room when I was hosting. I still loved it though.

      Thank you all for this great birthday!

  13. We have a Scavenger Hunt for you today. Hint: There aren't any repeated designers.

  14. Not bragging or anything, but I'm into May of 2017 for my Project Life pages. :D At least I'm still working on them.

  15. Impromptu swim and dinner party with Grace's family last night, and a garden party in the garden tonight for a group of ladies from church. Add to that -Thomas lost his passport and has a ticket to Amsterdam on Monday...spendy for him to get a replacement that quickly, but he should have it on Saturday. And I thought August would be better than July. 🤣

      There was a glitch in the process and he didn't get his passport replaced, so they had to cancel their trip. :monstercry:

    3. MariJ

      MariJ

      Oh NOoooooooo... Sorry about that, oh dear.  

    4. April Showers

      He did cancel the flights, so he only lost 30% of what he paid and can use the balance for a future trip.

  16. Thomas is engaged! He dropped by last night to show us the ring (and to call her father) before he asked her.

    Ignore the fact that I didn't grab the right layouts when I did the screenshots. :blush:
