elaynef, I can't believe how many wonderful photos you were able to use on Jeronimo Creek. I love your pages. It's fun to see other 8.5x11 ideas. I love the new bins you have on your desk. I am surprised that the stickers just didn't create joy! I am trying to use stickers too, but I haven't pulled them all together. I'm afraid if I did I'd have a box of trash too.
Linda, I can't keep up with all your pages. I love seeing them and sometimes recognizing Becky Higgins designs. You are fortunate to have so many photos of your DD's college time. She will love what you are doing.
nylene - awesome cards - the alligator card is so fun! and I love the bicycle on the card club card. I do feel fortunate that DD sends me photos regularly - I've already gotten two this semester - her first day of class and her second day of class pictures!
elaynef - wow - those photos are fabulous! love how you got so many of them on the layout and it still looks clean and uncluttered even with the embellishments
Lots of eye candy here. I need to do my commenting before I get too far behind!
Linda, I love all your food related pages. Too bad there isn't a challenge this month for scrapping about food: you would be piling up the points on those! I often think I should be taking photos of special meals, but seldom do. I like that you included both the people and what they were eating. Love that diamond border on "Yum", the layers on "coming home", and the soft pinks in "starving". And your poppy page is beautiful.
elaynef, you are certainly not pokey this month! Loving all your pages so far. Great use of pic's of signs or else cutouts from pamphlets for your titles on the state park page and the wildlife preserve pages. You manage to get a lot of photos on a page, but still really know how to use great background papers. Love the palm fronds on the state park page, the layers and tilting on the anniversary page, and the perfect backgrounds on the zoo page. Great animal photos, too: I always miss those and only get a rump or something.
nylene, those are really cool interactive cards. How fun they would be to receive!
That diamond page is STUNNING, AussieMeg! Awesome colours. Great page design.
Wondering if your image from Flickr won't link b/c you have not made any of your photos "public" yet? You can set up a separate album for the pages you want to share with us, move your pics of those pages there, and then they should link to the message board.
Left love for this gorgeous page in the Gallery, nylene !
Here are my two pages for today. I had fun playing with my Prima paper doll stamps and tags, which I was reminded about when I saw the Prima ads for Creativation (They are coming out with a whole new series of dolls and costumes in Traveling Girl.

2 redo pages today. I forgot to take a before picture, but these 2 pictures were from a calender and they were side by side and I had just put it on a piece of cardstock. I redid it because it was messing up the order of my layouts and it was landscape instead of portrait. 27 pts for both of them
Love your remakes, elaynef. The colours and Parker s are great. Love the story about your dgs’s attitude toward shopping. I rarely do actual remakes, but sometimes scrap the same pics in different ways.
Your page is beautiful, Meelleek. Love the doilies and soft torn edges. Love where this page took you. Those two really do look a lot alike, and I think as I look at your profile pic that if you had a photo of yourself at that age you would be triplets!
