Yipeee! I sorta got to play yesterday . I uploaded and created files of photos. Unfortunately we had a lightening storm come through so I was forced off the computer. I hope to finish that up sometime today and maybe get some actual scrapping in tomorrow. I have about 15 minutes to go through the gallery before taking DD2 to another lacrosse event. I hope you all have a fabulous day!

This is an interesting one, Cheryl. But, first I need to make a page for my DGD who just turned 11 who's apparently converting her room from Disney Fairies to animal prints, so I'm doing to make her something for her wall with zebra stripes!

Hello everyone! I have missed you all! Not much scrapping done since a retreat I went to in March. Here's a short update:

We've had a lot of "lasts" the past couple of months. The girls finished regular dance year of classes with spring recital which was Emily's last recital but it was a great show. We finished competition season with Nationals in Panama City Beach, FL and it was Emily's last competition. They just finished a two week dance intensive so it was Emily's last time dancing with the girls from our studio. We leave in a week for Emily's college orientation then move her into her dorm on Aug. 16th. So, it has been and continues to be an emotional roller coaster for me right now. But Brooke starts getting ready for competition season in August so I'll be plenty busy.

I am going to try and start back here with the July goal thread. I don't know that I'll get any scrapping done. I still have a quilt to make for Emily that she wants to take with her.

On another note, I have read June's thread so if this has been mentioned already, I apologize for the duplication. If you use Creative Memories products, I suggest you visit a consultant's website ASAP. They are closing as of Aug. 21st. CM filed ch.11 bankrupcty in April (I think) and just announced they are closing as the Creative Memories name but sounds like there is plans to open under a new name. Everything is while supplies last except pages, page protectors and select coversets. Those items are temporarily unavailable until July 8th. You can order all you need July 8th -July 31st. At that time, CM will order the raw materials to make and fill those orders and no extras. As far as everything else, a lot of it already gone. The future of their digital products is uncertain also. If you use their digital, I suggest getting projects ordered very soon.

Now, I think I'll clean my craft room. It's a mess as usual.

Hi Michele....it's good to hear from you...sounds like a super busy summer. That seems to be the norm here lately!

I just finished up 2 progressive digi challenges that I started in January and April and never finished. I needed a break from cleaning and working and will upload those 3 pages tomorrow (if I get the chance).

Now that I've got a major project done with work, I need to clean my entire house from top to bottom. I've got guests coming Thursday or Friday for the weekend and on Saturday am hostessing a huge Fourth party for family and friends (about 30-35 people) SO that's the next thing to focus on. Once that's done, I've got Federal Jury Duty (maybe) again and then I've got to get the boys ready for cub scout camp...after that, DGS is going to the beach for a week (without us ) so I'm planning on things to do with DH without the wee one! Then it will be getting ready for vacation down at Myrtle Beach! Maybe I'll get to hook up with Anavon this year if she has some down time. At least this year I'll be able to walk unlike last year's vacation when I was on crutches....

Have a good holiday everyone! Now I'm off to make BBQ for the party...5 lbs of it!

Well, the rains just started!! Sounds like a good reason to stay indoors and get this page finished that I started yesterday. I had great plans on having it done already but my neighbor was telling me about bags full of vintage linens she had just thrown away. To make a long story short, I went dumpster diving this afternoon and man was the haul worth it!! Now I am cleaning said linens to see how if I can get all the stains out. Yellowing is no problem, that comes out easy enough, it's the rust and food stains that will be the challenge.
Some of the items I can't salvage I plan on using on my vintage pages. I may go back dumpster diving tomorrow to get that vintage silver Christmas tree she threw away, my mom wants it!!

Michelle, whew, I got worn out just readying everything your doing this summer. Then Terry put me down for the count with her busy schedule!!

My kids and grand kids are all out of the state for the holiday week so it looks like it will be a quiet one for me.

Wow, Terry, I think you got me beat on the busy summer. Hope you have a great party!

Sharon, I probably would have gone after those vintage linens too. Emily loves vintage stuff.

Now, it's July (which I can't believe) and on the very first day of the month......I already have 1 page done. Yay! Yay! Me!
Here's a link to it on my blog today:

Wow, I am a CTMH consultant so I knew CM was closing up shop in Australia and New Zealand and CTMH is stepping into the breach to help out the CM consultants there, but I hadn't realized things were going south in the USA. Makes me sad, even though I work for a competitor, because I got my start scrapbooking with CM and have met many wonderful consultants over the years.

I only got one page done in June. I did make two little digi mini books for family and a photobook for everyone on my son's baseball team.... but I guess those don't count! lol. Things are slowing down a bit so hopefully I can scrap more this month. I'm shooting for 6 in July.

It is sad to see them go away. CM was one of my first scrapbooks.

Sounds like you got a lot accomplished even if it wasn't as many pages as you wanted to do. Don't beat yourself up. I bet those mini books were quite a hit and the photobook!

I ended up with 10 pages and not 15 as I hope to do. But, I am really proud that I was able to accomplish getting those done. I also created several cards and worked on some online craft classes. I did make a canvas with one of Donna Downey's classes at my LSS too. So, I am feeling pretty good about things. You ladies are a lovely source of inspiration and I love the challenges.

I plan to shoot for 12 pages in July.

Well, I managed to get 7/10 pages done for June. Still happy with the progress. I'm shooting for at least 10 again for July and already have 2 of those done.
