I did this layout for the speed scrap challenge during Carnival Week at Scrapgirls. The photos are from my niece's graduation party. Clockwise, they are my sister holding a baby, the three grandads, my niece in red and her cousin, family talking, and one of her friends enjoying the onsite zoo.

The challenge called for certain items to be used in the layout. I used the Gallery Template by Thao Cosgrove, styles by Ariadna Wiczling and Keri Schueller, and freebies by Ro Paxman, Angie Briggs, Syndee Nuckles, and Valerie Randall.

New game!

The game is in the judgement mode as of this second, so don't be thrown if you see that!  Try it - it has two modes, so even those of us not so quick can play.

Photography game

Ace and I have collaborated on a Flash game that uses my photographs.  He needs to post it elsewhere first, so stay tuned!

Friday Adventure Day

Ace and I headed back to the Great Meadows Wildlife Refuge this afternoon.  What a difference from our visit this spring!  The bulrushes blocked most of the view of the water, but where it was visible it was covered in water lilies.  Alas, my camera battery died half way around, but I hope the photos I did take come out.

Adding blog to Facebook

Well the Facebook entry duplicated itself here.  So still a few bugs in the system!

I am still enjoying Carnival week over at Scrapgirls.  I am also finishing up yet another dishcloth!

One reason I started this blog is to save the patterns, as I am making them up as I go along.  What a lovely surprise to read some crochet books and discover there is a name for this: Freeform Crochet.

I also need to finish the drawstrings for Monstruoso the Net Bag and post it here also.

Adding blog to Facebook

I am still playing with my blog! This is a test to see what happens when I post here from Facebook. It will also be interesting to see if friends on Facebook can see the blog.

Scrapgirls Contest

If you haven't checked out Scrapgirls yet, head on over!  Carnival Week is in progress!

For the blog contest, my current favorite product is the ScrapSimple Victorian Garden paper templates.  They are all lovely but the canvas background must be my most frequently used item.  (There is a matching kit and other items I love also.)

First blog post!

Well, I have finally jumped onto the blogging bandwagon!  I want a place to share photos, templates, and other things with people.  My main hobbies are photography, digital scrapbooking and crochet, although I also rubber stamp and do quilling.

So enjoy!  Sit a spell.  Enjoy my world.
