Sometimes I Feel So Very Pretty

Here's my page for the ON playday at SBG.

Scraplift of Nicole's "Leonie"

Fonts: Arial Rounded Mt, Passions Conflict, Bickley Script
Flowers from Glittery Spots by Trish Jones. (recolored)
Swirls from Flittery elements by Lorie Davidson
Staple by Jenn Patrick 1958

These layouts were featured in the Page Maps Jan. 2008 newsltr.

This is the page I made for Liam.

A couple of weeks ago I did a layout of Liam building his gingerbread house, so of course, I had to make one of Kaylie, too. This is the first time in a long time that I make 3 pages about one single event.

Scrapbook-Graphics: Chats, Impressions of Anticipation and Challenges

I just wanted to let you know that we’re planning a New Year’s Eve Chat Fest starting at 6 p.m. Eastern on December 31st and running until 3 a.m. Eastern January 1st. If you don’t have any plans, we hope you’ll stop in for a while and hang out. There’s no schedule, we’ll just have Studio Girls popping in when they can (probably with goodies!), the Studio Crew in there joking around, and every hour on the half-hour we’ll be giving away one copy of the Studio Girls new collaboration, Impressions of Anticipation which will debut that night!

Also want to let you know that come January 1st there will be some changes happening with our Spirit Club! In addition to earning one Pom Pom Point per post in the forum/gallery, you will now be able to earn 20 Pom Pom Points for every Studio Crew challenge you complete. Just register in the specially marked Spirit Club thread in the Contest forum each month with your current post count, and then, throughout the month, add links to your challenge layouts in your original registration post by editing it. At the end of the month, you will have worked your way right up the ladder of Spirit Club prizes. Our prize package always coordinates with the Studio Girls’ latest collaboration, so totally worth working for!

Here is a list of the challenges that will continue in the new year, along with the new challenges we’ll be adding!

Frameworthy: our art inspiration challenge brought to you every Monday by Kim and Donna
I Can Scraplift That: our always fun scraplifting challenge hosted by Kait each Tuesday
We Can Build It: brought to you every other Thursday by Becky and Tammy, this challenge gives you a list of required elements that must be included on your page. Can We Build It? Yes, we can!
Memory Lane: Stephanie and Jenna host this stroll down Memory Lane, prompting you to scrap about days gone by.
Studio Starts: our weekly blog challenge continues every Friday in the new year with Color It challenges, Studio Girl scraplifts, fun prompts and a new category, List It!
Filmstrip: this is a new photography challenge that Stephanie will bring you every other Monday starting January 7th
Encylcopedia of an Ordinary Year: Jenn is taking her Reality Scraps challenge to a new level this year by having you scrap your daily life with alphabetical themes every other Tuesday
Theme Album Challenge: Karen Maggie is asking you to join her on the first Thursday of the month for this year-long challenge to create a theme album by scrapping at least one two-page spread each month
Desktop Challenge: Tammy reminds us the last week of the month to get our desktop wallpaper ready for the upcoming month

Also look for photography technique challenges from Amy, another Quirkshop from Donna and Kim, possibly an intermediate DSLR for Newbies class, another Brag Book challenge from Wendy, and who knows what else! We’re always full of surprises! So stay tuned, join in and win those prizes! We'd love it if you would join us! See you there.
