Well, now I'm hungry! Great recipe cards, Ladies!


Mom is helping me today dig through my recipe box -- so many to choose from! I'll get some posted here in the next week or so.

Today, I'm most grateful that my computer didn't crash. It went haywire for about 2 hours and wouldn't restart. But, I unplugged the internet and it started right up again. Phew!


Week 1 - Layout 2 -- Nature

*Today's blessing -- picked some of the ripe lemons and made real lemonade. What a treat!


Week 2 - Layout 1 -- Technology

*Technology's biggest impact on me has to be that I can keep in touch at any time w/ friends and family (like this website)!

You all are so kind to be thinking of me...  And, to be honest, I'm finding scrapping a challenge to be a challenge....  but I did actually start with an ATC size before I read this....   :)

And, I'm just back from a new dr/surgeon visit and a HUGE needle in my shoulder, which was a surprise..... was that a challenge?   

Time for a nap ZZzzzzzzz........


And I like that idea of scrapping a minor challenge, I should have read this thread before starting......  

Ouch Marilyn...I feel your pain...I found that those needles  to be stressful... and rather uncomfortable. I hope it helps you. Good luck with the new dr/surgeon. Let's get you fixed!!!  We  want you up and scrapping pain free again!!!!!!!!



:dito: Same "Let's get you fixed" wishes from me as well, Marilyn.  You are a trooper and we are behind you!

Hi, Pam!  Welcome!


It took me a couple of years before I really started posting layouts. Learned a lot by practicing with the challenges (and I'm still learning). Looking foward to seeing your layouts. Just have fun with it!  

In Topic: October Hybrid Atc Calendar Swap Is Back!

Thanks, Carla! I become less optimistic about delivery time w/ post office nearing peak season. Finished the last touches tonight--done! Will be in the mail (Priority) by 8:30 am on my way to office.

The swaps this year have been so good. I've really enjoyed seeing what you girls (and Jack) come up with each swap. Anxious to see your takes on the calendar months. Still have mine on my desk!

I agree with you, Laura ... the swaps have been so beautiful this year. I love seeing the ideas that everyone comes up with. And now we are on our third year of calendar ... I just love looking at the current one sitting on my desk and thinking of each individual that has made that particular month. You artists are amazing!! Not sure what you all do with your past calendars, but when the year is over I take my calendar apart and tuck each month into its own sleeve and added into my ATC notebook to keep with our other swap treasures!





I do the same as Lei, put them in a binder with the rest of the swaps.


Brooke and I got all ready  to assemble the other night and realized we had some clashing colors. So we had to reprint and make some adjustments. But back on track!



I'm doing the same--putting in a notebook. I scrapped/printed a cover page for my ATC collection. I enjoy looking back at them when I put new ones into the book.
