  1. Getting ready to update the chart for PL and the Challenge Chase, and they're on my EHD- which is in the laptop bag my darling took with him for the weekend. So sorry! Unless I can get him to find it and send it to me, I won't be able to get to it until Sunday!

  2. Feels good to be home again! When i planned out September, I didn't realize I would be gone so long.

  3. Shutterfly is having another unlimited free extra pages sale. I saved so much when I did my 2016 Album that way.

      Very cool, thanks!  Those extra pages always push up the final price. 

  4. We're vacationing in Southern Utah, and I'll be late updating the Challenge Chase and posting the Weekly Winners because I've been out of reliable cell coverage and will be for most days until Saturday. If I get into the hotel at a reasonable hour tomorrow, I'll work on them! 

  5. Thomas just signed a contract to have a toy made of him (his game character). They should be in toy stores next year. Never expected that!

      Amazing, how cool, can you send us a photo when available, I don't know if we would be able to get it over here in the UK

      They do have a developers conference in London, so it is possible. From what I hear, the current ones are in ToysRUs.

      I will be away for a week during September.... off on a cruise to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. But I will have a look at what everyone is doing for this fun event, when I am home.

      Congratulations, that's a happy event, Anne Marie!  You can always join in before and after your cruise if you can. :)  Happy sailing.

  9. The winners for the last two weeks plus the slow scrap are posted. Weekly Layout & Forum Game Winners - August 7th & 14th

  10. I've been super busy this week, so I haven't posted the weekly winners yet. I'll try to get them done later tonight after the Garden Party at my house is over.

      I was just wondering about the weather at your place, but you answered that, LOL. Glad the party turned out well.

      It was rather warm and a bit muggy, but we had a great turnout and a fun party. I was up late packing and left bright and early this morning for Seattle. I thought I'd get more done today, but Elizabeth was a tad fussy - like she cried it I wasn't moving. But hey, I got in my steps that way, just no computer time.

  11. So we're having a heatwave this week, so my daughter (who doesn't have AC) has moved in with her kids for the rest of the week. I guess I shouldn't expect to get much done. :D They're so much fun and soooo energetic.

  12. If you have photobucket notices in your signature, we are in the process of getting them all transferred to our site. You can find the blinkie list here: New Blinkies & Badges! The newest ones are at the bottom of the list.

    1. April Showers

      April Showers

      Photobucket totally changed up their business model and will only allow you to use links from their site when you sign up for their $39 monthly package. Yikes!

    2. MariJ

      MariJ

      Yikes for sure, that's an amazing difference!

      I just noticed this and put a query in the Designer Forum about it. Image hosting is the only thing I've used them for and if we don't need it anymore I'll cancel my account with them. $400 a year is completely excessive.

  13. The Weekly Winner Thread includes Sale-Abration Challenge winners, World Tour Winners & the Project Life quarterly drawing winner.

  14. Nothing like an Unlimited Free Pages coupon at Shutterfly to get me to finish up the last two pages of 2016. Just need to proofread and edit before Sunday.

      Whoa, wow - that's great and good luck April! :)

      Third daughter is checking it now. I've got another batch of changes from the second daughter edit, but I'll be able to finish before the deadline. Just wish I didn't have an article due tomorrow too. :sinking:

      Always doesn't rain that it pours, right?  Not sure i got that right, but good going!

  17. I didn't really want a new car, but since I totaled mine today, I suppose I'm getting one. And we're all just fine. Missed my workout though.

      Are the ducklings gone now and the feed over?   Thanks April for sharing and for Thomas for doing it, :) I really enjoyed watching!

    3. April Showers

      The feed is over, the ducklings were swimming in the pool this morning, but I haven't seen them all day, so I think they may have gone to the wetlands when I was working. We'll see if they try to come back tonight.

      Awwwww...     Wow they grew up fast, but it sure was fun watching them!

  20. Off on more adventures with Cathrine. Little Elizabeth is officially overdue. We walked about 6  miles yesterday.

      One of the girls she teaches at church has been praying Elizabeth will be born on her birthday, May 15th. That was my mother's birthday too, so maybe it will be Monday....

      It really is, he chose a pretty white one for me. It kind of has a cool design on the plastic too.

  22. The Weekly Layout and iNSD Challenge winners are posted.

     

  23. If you could post your forum questions in this thread Questions About the New Forum, it will make it a lot easier for us to keep track of them.

    :thanks:

  24. :tinkerbell:If you had trouble finding the "reply" button in any of the forums, I fixed the settings so you can reply now.
