Sounds like a day of fun! Fortunately, I only have to attend one sporting event, the last one of the year, so I should be able to hang around most of the day!

Have a fabulous day everyone - unfortunately we are away for the weekend with no internet access so I won't be able to join you, but I'll look forward to seeing all your layouts when we get back.

Whew! That's a full day of chats! After our morning chat I will be on the road to Christopher's marching band competition so it may be a good day to try and see if I can chat via my phone.

Oh my - NINE chats in ONE day?!! I've convinced DH that he needs to go birding tomorrow. He leaves about 4 AM and returns after dark, sometimes as late as 11 PM, so I won't have to cook. :D I don't know if I have the stamina for that much chatting and scrapping, but I'll give it a try. Gotta do some preplanning, though.

You're a smart one! We've left some time between the chats. Not much, but you can get up, move around, get a snack and be ready for the next chat, right? :D

 

I really, really wish tomorrow wasn't moving day for my daughter! They won't have internet hooked up at their new place until Monday.

I have to work but I had time to do a page this morning to count toward the 9 page challenge. I put it in the gallery. I hope that I'm allowed to post there pages that aren't from the chats?

If not, tell me and I'll move it when I get a break at work.

I do want to work toward entries for the Bamboo tablet!

The pages do need to for the Digital Scrapbook Day challenges. You can see if any you've done fit the challenge though.

Will the challenges be written someplace, or will they only be available inside the chats?

Oh Jo you made me laugh, but I'd say your stamina is doing good so far with chatting! :)
