I am SOOOOO sorry for the delay ladies. You'll still have 24 hours to finish your page though, so I'll give you until 11am Pacific time tomorrow.

Ready? Here are your instructions.

First, you'll need THE template. Link removed this event has ended.

You'll see that this is a list style template. So, there will be no photos *gasp* fun, right?

Once you've picked a kit I'd like for you to simply scrap about why you scrap. That's easy enough, isn't it? When you're done, come back here and show us your LO and tomorrow you'll see a super fun coupon code in your PM box.

Little Green Frog Designs (http://store.gingerscraps.net/Little-Green-Frog-Designs/) has provided us with the template AND the coupon code, so be sure to send her a little thank you : ) We all love being appreciated, right?

Jen here... I'm hijacking this thread to show of the awesome template! Linkie is above. So cute! WOOT!

Howdy and good day to everyone! Is it too late to start the nonchat-chat and nonchallenge, not-too-speedy scrap? LOL! I couldn't log on earlier today because a storm came through our area, bring thunder, lightning, and rain. Another one is brewing now, but judging by the thunder, it's still pretty far away.

Anyway, I'll DL the file and get started until I hear otherwise. Now that I'm more or less retired, I want to participate more in Ginger Scraps's wonderful activities and get to know everyone better.

Thank you for the super template! It took awhile to DL it because of my ultra-slow Internet connection, but it came through just fine and in the nick of time ... the rain is hitting us now. Hurricane season started June 1st, and all predictions are that it's going to be a bad year for the Caribbean. I'm going to try to get as much done as I can before I have to shut down my computer and unplug the equipment. With the vacillations in power that we experience here on St. Croix, it's the only way to keep one's computer safe. Yowza! I just heard a big crack of thunder that sounded not too far off ... I'm going to play it on the safe side and shut down ... Ciao for now!

Yikes!!! That sounds scary. As I was reading your post I was wondering where you were from. I'm originally from Florida in the good ole USA and got to experience all sorts of fun stuff like hurricanes and tropical storms and Tornados. So glad to not have that here in Washington. Much better. St. Croix huh? I didn't know people actually lived there, I thought they just vacationed there (just kidding). It must be beautiful.

Can't wait to see your LO. You have untili 11am Pacific time (which I believe should be 2pm your time). I hope you'll post it anyway, even if you don't finish quite on time. And hope you're safe from the storm.

I still wasn't seeing it, so I fixed it too. To post your layout, right click on the image itself, select "copy image address". Come back to the forum click the little photo and paste the URL in. Go back to your layout, and copy the URL from the browser address window (the one you had been copying in your original post.) To link the photo select the [IMG] ... [IMG] text, select the world with the chain link, and copy the URL from the browser address window into the pop-up box.

Thanks for your kind words and concern, Carolyn! The power did go out, but during yesterday afternoon, not last night. We had one thunderstorm after another yesterday: in the morning, in the afternoon, and then a gazonga one last night. And wouldn't you know it, but when the one hit last night and I tried to shut down my 'puter, that's when good ole Microsoft decided to install updates ... 13 of them! I tried everything short of turning my 'puter off or pulling the plug, I was so nervous with all the lightning, rain, and thunder. Thank goodness, my 'puter finally got thru all that and I could shut down safely. After that, I stayed off till now (about 10:30 am here) since we had another shower this morning. I live in the "rainforest" part of the island, and it's usually pretty damp here anyway, but now it's downright soggy! You are right about it being beautiful, though ... I love it here, storms and all!



Yikes!!! That sounds scary. As I was reading your post I was wondering where you were from. I'm originally from Florida in the good ole USA and got to experience all sorts of fun stuff like hurricanes and tropical storms and Tornados. So glad to not have that here in Washington.

http://gallery.gingerscraps.net/showphoto.php?photo=34686&title=speed-scrap-non-chat&cat=500

So glad you joined us! Here's how get the LO to show (it's not intuitive, don't worry, it's not you, LOL)

In gallery, right click the big image of your LO and choose "Copy Image". Then come here and hit the "Insert Image" icon (tree pic) and paste your image url (will end w/ .jpg). To get it to link so we can give you love, then highlight that whole thing you just inserted, go back to the gallery and copy the URL at the top. Then back in your post, click the "insert link" icon (world) while that is still highlighted and paste.

I always have 2 tabs open when I do this. Hope that helps. Feel free to PM me if you have questions.

Journal strips read as follows:

(1) Asking me why I scrapbook is like asking me why I read ... because I’d go crazy
without it! Thirty years ago, I learned an important fact about myself, that unless I
read before bed each night, whether a little or a lot, I become unsettled. Once I
started scrapbooking, I discovered the same is true.

(2) I’ve worked as an editor, librarian, and English teacher all my life, professions
that require a lot of exactness. Now I want to be messy. I want to play with colors,
shapes, and design instead of spelling, punctuation, and grammar.

(3) In 1965, I began a book of clippings and quotes, taping everything down. In the
1980s, I bought magnetic albums from Walmart and learned about acid the hard way.
In 2005 I spent a fortune on eBay buying paper, embellishments, and rubber stamps.
Then I discovered digital scrapbooking and totally fell in love with it.

(4) The digital scrapbooking community is the most supportive online community
I have ever encountered. Forget Facebook! The people one gets to know at sites
like GingerScraps are the real thing! And when a catastrophe happens somewhere
in the world or when one of their members suffers a loss, the outpour of compassion
and help is amazing.

(5) Living more than 2,000 miles away from family and friends is sometimes lonely.
By posting the layouts I create at various places on the WWW, folks back home
can keep up with what I’m doing and I can show them my love, especially my four
beautiful grandchildren.

Let me try this again. This is my first post and I don't think I did it correctly a little while ago. Anyway....
Here is my page--hopefully. I use a kit called Hugging and Loving by Laura Banasiak. Thanks

You did it perfectly. Welcome to Ginger Scraps. I hope you enjoy the site, it's the most friendly bunch of ladies I've met on the net : ) Thanks for playing.

I've sent out coupon codes to everyone who qualified. If you did not get yours please let me know. My internet timed out a couple times, so I wasn't sure that they went through.
