I've been swallowed by the Christmas bug and only just realized that I'm supposed to be hosting a speed scrap tonight. I hope some of ya'll can make it. I'll be giving out glitter for the participation prize.

We'll be winging it tonight. No clues to give out yet ;)


1. Select your photos. An odd number of them. (I'm using 1. Surprised? )
2. Select some papers. At least 3 prints.
3. Use a few of your selected papers to create some layered mats beneath the photo.
4. Use some string or loopy ribbon
5. cluster at least 5 elements around your photo
6. use a one word title
7. date your layout. add any journaling you wish. spend a little extra time on your shadowing. post a copy in this thread with a link back to your layout in the Speed Scrap gallery. And don't forget to leave your fellow speed scrappers a little love.

Wonderful thank you. I have been sick since Nov. 6th and have had 3 surgeries dealing with kidney stones. Today I finally got good news that I am kidney stone free. Now I can enjoy the holidays with all of the foster grandkids.

That's great news!

I had a cookie decorating playdate for my kids today with some friends. I still need to clean up their messes :D

But what fun I am sure they had. They don't stay little long enough.

They did have lots of fun with their friends. Before and after decorating the cookies also. Jake just wanted to eat frosted cookies all day, too.

Ok. here's step 2 and I'll be copying them to my first post for anyone who wants to try and do this later.

2. Select some papers. At least 3 prints.

Thanks so much, Cathy! I have been crazy busy. My husband and I are the new music ministers at a wonderful church in Fairview Heights, IL and the transition period has been a whirlwind. Christmas for a church musician is like tax season for an accountant.

How wonderful for you. This definitely is a busy time of the year for you. Are you doing a special Christmas Eve service? We will be at our DD's in Belleville for Christmas Eve & Christmas Day. She has 6 foster kids this year, so what fun we are going to have.

Yes! Actually we have 2 on Wednesday (10:30 am and 7:00 pm) and 2 on Thursday (5:00 (family/kid focus) and 9:00 (candlelight)). It's at Grace Church on Hwy 159, if you guys want to drop by. It sounds like you'll be having a fantastic time!

Darn!!! I missed it. That'll teach me. I don't think I've looked at the site in ages (not much ofan interest in July/Dec).

I wish there was a way to get notifications (by email) of challenges like speed scraps. Oh well I'll have to make a note to check in more often.

The calendar always shows too much info of past challenges to easily see when a new event is happening.

Maybe I'll go do the page now just to see how it would have come out....
