Arrow December 2015 Scrap Pages & Chatter - sbc15dec

Scrappin' Challenge 2015

Can you believe this is our 7th year of Scrappin' Goal Challenge?! We sure completed an AWESOME number of pages together in 2009 through 2014 and I'm looking forward to MORE Scrap pages together in 2015! Let's keep scrappin'.

It was SO fun to chat about and see everyone's pages, goals and ideas for completing LOTS of scrapbook pages in 2015! Many had a common theme - get more pages done, use what's in our stash, meet new scrapping friends, plan time/crops...

What fun we'll have sharing ideas, cheering success, keeping the motivation and making new friends. Our scrap goal isn't all about getting pages done, it's also about enjoying the process! Please feel free to join at any time!

Here's the CHALLENGE. Each person can share their page goals, pages and ideas. for those of use who like Annual Goals, we will have a better shot at meeting our yearly goal if we break it down by month.

*In this thread, we track our monthly goals. We find it helps us keep getting pages done which is good for all of us.

You choose your own scrapbook page goal and monthly spend goal. You may select 2, 3, 5, 50 pages....you choose. The idea is to be flexible so if you know you're going to be really busy, you can reduce the number one month or if you're going to a couple crops or scrap weekends, up the number. This also works for the budget. Each month, you can change your goals depending on your calendar!

The whole goal of the challenge is to get lots of pages done all the while enjoying sharing with Virtual Friends.

Are you UP for the CHALLENGE? Come and Play in the 2015 Scrapbook Challenge! Here's to Meeting our Scrapping Goals & Meeting New Friends!

We'd love to "oohh" and "aahh" over your pages so please post with key word "sbc15dec"

Default Happy Holidays!

Yippee! I met my goals for pages this year! I did 12 pages last month which brings my total to 120 completed pages (so far)!

Now, I'll have to go back and look to see how many cards I did. I just did some thank you cards for my DD this weekend but didn't get a photo of them

For December my goal will be 8 pages. I plan on concentrating on getting my cards started and have a few gift ideas in mind too!

Good morning December! I was not going to do much in the way of scrapping this month but I have an ABC album I want to make for my DGGS's birthday in January so I will have to keep chugging along and at a greater speed as I am doing a two page layout for each letter!! I have 22 letters left to do plus the back page so I had better set my goal at 30 plus pages. It will be an 8x8 album that takes me half the time I usually spend to make a layout, plus I'm keeping it flat with mostly paper embellishments. Lots of Cricut work on these babies!!

Congratulations Ann on meeting your goal already!!

Missed my goal for November, completed 6 of the 10, which brought my total up to 85 for the year.
I will set my goal at 8 for December.
Oh, as a side note, 2 of my pages are printed on the packaging for the latest Lea France Stencil that just went up a couple days ago. It makes me happy.

November was a lame month for me scrappy wise (only two layouts for the month), and I don't see December being much less busy, but I need to complete some layouts for a guest design spot I'm doing at Lasting Memories blog, plus I want to do the sketch challenges and the Stash Busters here, so please put me down for 10 layouts. Might as well aim high, right? My YTD is 56 layouts.

72 pages year to date. Didn't make November's goal, so not setting a December goal. Will do what I can. Thanks Lela for your faithfulness to the scrapbooking forums and challenges. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.

Congratulations Joyce Ann!

Even with the cramming last night (haha!) I only got about half of my November goal- tho that is the best I've done since August. In order to reach my yearly goal I'd have to do 68 this month and that is not going to happen. To complete the calendars I need to do 12 more pages... I'll shoot for 20 as my goal, because I'd also like to do a December Daily style album...starting with last week, ahem. And I'm off to do more calendar-ing!

Well.... Sigh!... I missed my goal in Oct. by a lot and Nov. was not much better...☹️

And since my YTD total so far is 86... My goal for December is going to be 14 to make an even 100 for the year.

I want to share with you all a couple of thoughts about my gratitude for all of you....
I believe that GRATITUDE is all RELATIVE!!! And I am so grateful to all those that I call family and friends...
My time on Splitcoast has been a little sparse over the past couple of months and I could post a whole list of justifiable excuses, but the bottom line is this:
When I was set apart for my new calling as Relief Society President, I had an overwhelming feeling that I needed to focus more on my family time and the needs of the sisters in my branch and not on all the self gratification I was getting from all my food and craft posts. So I accepted a challenge and took a break from a lot of my social media avenues and this is what I learned...
#1. There were a lot of you who called or texted inquiring about my disappearance and asked if I was okay. "That made me feel loved and missed, for that I am grateful!"
#2. There were a few of you that privite messaged me inquiring if I was going to be posting anymore yummy looking food, recipes and my crafty creations. "That made me feel loved and needed, for that I am grateful!"
#3. There were a few of you that emailed me saying that you missed my words of wisdom and my stories and inquired as to when I was going to start posting again. "That made me feel loved and wanted, for that I am grateful!"
So through all of this I have learned that the things I am most grateful for are the things that are "RELATIVE..."
Family I am related to
Friends that I call family
and my social media aquaintances ( all you imaginary bff's) that I call friends....
My life would never be the same without any of you, we are All RELATIVE To each other! On my mantel this year stands three wooden pumpkins, each one representing a part of my gratitude. One for family, one for friends and the small one for my social media bff's.

Can't believe December is here and it's almost year end! The huge government project we have been working on since LAST August is still not finished and we've started a new project which is scaring me to death! We purchased our own property for our business and we have to renovate the entire building before we can move into it. Since our current lease is for another 2 years (of which is going to be very expensive to break), I am totaling stressing out on how to manage everything between the 2 business locations, home, family, and holidays! Every time I think things are getting better, things get more crazy! I just take a lot of deep breaths and say lots of prayers every day to get me through. I love coming here to read and see what others are doing as I don't get a lot of interaction with people anymore...Have a wonderful holiday season if I don't have a chance to get back to you all this month!

Default December Progressive Challenge???

This was a year with no official goals for me, so same applies for December.

But, I know I'll be doing the Progressive Challenge, so thought some of you might like to see Task 1 too:

Well, I did it again. I posted a sketch in the gallery yesterday but forgot to create a post so you all would know to check it out. I finally realized my error, so please check out the newly posted sketch challenge!

Hello. No scrapping yet but I have cleared off my dining room table after Thanksgiving and set up an assembly line to do Christmas Cards. got 18 done so far...not sure how many more I need to make yet. I guess as many as time allows since I do maybe 10-15 minutes in the morning before I leave for work and 1/2 hour or so in the evening when I can. DH and I are giving the employees at work gift cards for Christmas so I need to make cards to put them in to hand out.

My stepmother was in the hospital right after Thanksgiving and just came home last week. From what my brother says, she has a hospice nurse coming in to help every day since she needs some sort of breathing treatments and her health is deteriorating? quickly. I haven't seen or talked to her in years since my dad died as she doesn't want to be bothered by me (since I am not her daughter even though she raised me for 13 yrs) but yet she complains to my brother that I never go see her...Oi...and she's the one that told me to "take a hike" AND she returned Christmas and Birthday presents to me 2 years in a row a while back. Can't win for losing sometimes I finally made my brother give me her new address (yes...she moved and never told me her new address or phone number) so that I could at least write her a letter and send her a Christmas card this year. Maybe she'll allow me to visit her now...we'll see. At least I've offered but I would dread having to go as she's usually very nasty. It's at moments like this that I know God will give me the strength to endure. OK...enough now.

Have a great evening everyone!

I have been making cards from the VSN challenges but had to stop yesterday to work on scrapbooking. Funny how I yearn to scrap something. I chose the scraplift challenge.

Hello everyone! November was a bust for me and it is looking like December will be the same. I am having some health issues and gong through a ton of different test, the last of which should be tomorrow. I am a bit nervous but fully trusting in GOD to get me through this! Hope you all have a wonderful CHRISTmas.

YTD is 116 only 4 short of my goal so that's not to bad.

Terry, go for yourself and it will turn out OK, maybe great maybe not but you will know you tried your best.

Patti praying for good things for you!

Hope you all have a wonderful CHRISTmas.

YTD is 116 only 4 short of my goal so that's not to bad.

DH and I are giving the employees at work gift cards for Christmas so I need to make cards to put them in to hand out.

My stepmother was in the hospital right after Thanksgiving and just came home last week. From what my brother says, she has a hospice nurse coming in to help every day since she needs some sort of breathing treatments and her health is deteriorating? quickly. I haven't seen or talked to her in years since my dad died as she doesn't want to be bothered by me (since I am not her daughter even though she raised me for 13 yrs) but yet she complains to my brother that I never go see her...Oi...and she's the one that told me to "take a hike" AND she returned Christmas and Birthday presents to me 2 years in a row a while back. Can't win for losing sometimes I finally made my brother give me her new address (yes...she moved and never told me her new address or phone number) so that I could at least write her a letter and send her a Christmas card this year. Maybe she'll allow me to visit her now...we'll see. At least I've offered but I would dread having to go as she's usually very nasty. It's at moments like this that I know God will give me the strength to endure. OK...enough now.

Have a great evening everyone!

Take care and try not to stress over it too much. Whatever happens will happen in the right time, space and sequence. Sending hugs and prayers your way!

My love and thoughts are with you. You will "endure", strength will be yours through your faith. Now, you let the past go, do what you feel is right (sending cards), be at peace with yourself knowing you are doing the loving thing, expect nothing in return and God will do the rest.

Thanks all for listening...it helps. Update on the card...according to my "half" brother, it was not received in a favorable way. She is quite upset with him now for giving me her address so all it did was upset her. I'm at peace that I did try to reach out in a non-threatening way to wish her well and let her know I was thinking of her but she's obviously not ready to even try to be friends with me and my family.

And I agree Ann...everything will happen when it's supposed to...thanks again all!

And only 6 more days to Christmas....I'm not ready yet!

Thumbs up WooHoo

Weekend Before Holidays .... YES! Although I'm not off until Wed, this next week "work-wise" will be much easier. This week was full of end-of-year meetings and wrapping up some contracts. So happy ...

This weekend I'll be wrapping presents and doing some crafting ... and that's the fun stuff

When my DGD sent me these shots of Tiny Tot, I was mesmerized. (Of course, I'm totally captivated by my 4 yo Great grand anyway - hehe)
I kept it soft and simple.

Wink Happy Sunday!

Ohh ... I'm ready for an afternoon of hanging out in my Scrap space. It's 20 degrees here and a good day for being inside. I actually finished a layout last night and did some cards, hope to get more done today

Happy Sunday!

Not a lot of scrapping happening in my world this month, but I visited the Stash Busters challenges just now, so hopefully that will get my motor going! Anyone else scrapping today?

GOD is good! Everything is over and the biopsy was negative, no cancer. That is such a scary word that no one ever wants to hear. I am so grateful to Jesus that he held me tight during all of this and he kept my body free of cancer. I feel so good I may even try to scrap a page today. Thanks to all of you for your prayers.

well.... all the "pre-Christmas" stuff is done, all the gifts bought, wrapped and under the tree and now to just give the dog a bath and then I'm going to Scrap

It's a great way to bring in the Holiday ! Not sure how long I'll last, I got up at 0700 to go to Christmas Eve Exercise class .... felt good at the time

Quiet day but a good one so far. It's so warm here in PA (60+!) I made a french toast this am using the Pillsbury Cinnabon roll dough...very good! I'm thinking of goals I want to accomplish in the new year so I'm making lists. I did get the newest version of Adobe Photoshop Elements 14 so I want to download it at some point and put scrapping back on the to do list since I didn't get too much done this past year.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Talking Holiday Wish

Merry Christmas!

I hope all of you had a great holiday! Very fun here. DH got me a tablet and some exercise things I wanted along with some smaller clothes since I've recently needed them, all good! No Scrappy stuff this year (a first in some time) but I really didn't have anything on my list although he commented he was surprised, LOL!

Good Christmas with the Boys back home ... which is the best gift of all!
Off to take a walk and enjoy the Full Moon
