Good morning. It's beautiful outside but I haven't made it over to the door yet to open it. I just wanted to keep on sleeping this morning. Last night, I sat down at my laptop to look through some of my scrapping stuff, and the next thing I knew it was 2 a.m.
Gosh, going through all this stuff was like spending the evening with old friends. I guess I'm missing all the fun of scrapping, designing, and being a member of scrap forums. And I miss doing the challenges. My favorite challenge was one where we had to design book covers, and write the story line for the book. Here's a cover I made for a "romance" book.
This challenge was such fun, and it kept our creativity level high for both writing and design. Is it any wonder I enjoyed it so?
I also re-visited one of the forums where I used to be an active member to check out their current monthly challenges. I found a few that I like, so that will keep me busy for a while. Plus, they have a monthly blog train that I might try.
While I was there, I also bought a few new scrap kits. Gosh, there were so many beautiful scrap supplies, it's no wonder I was up so late. If you want to have a look, this forum is called "Wilma4Ever". Check it out. It's a fun forum, and their designers are awesome.
One of the new kits that I bought was "Autumn Welcome" by Bella Caribena. The colors are gorgeous, so I used this kit to make today's QP. I hope you can use.

DIL Janet just called to say that she cannot come by tonight because she has a wake to go to. Hmmm, I was going to try a recipe for orange glazed pork chops. Well, I guess I'll make it anyway and freeze half of it.
If you're into politics, be sure to watch the Republican debate on TV tonight. I doubt if I'll be watching, because I'm not into "mud slinging." If the candidates would stick to issues only, I'd be more interested in watching the debates. I am offended by all the dirty laundry that is aired. None of us has a completely clean personal slate. I would just like to hear what the candidates have to say about how they can help solve our country's problems.
I've already picked the person I'll be voting for. And, I'm not a Republican or a Democrat. I don't believe in "parties." I believe in being able to vote for the person(s) that I feel is best for the job. Being a member of a "party" means that I have to vote for someone that other politicians have decided should get the job. Hmmm, nuff said.
Well, it's getting close to lunch time here, so I'm going to head for the kitchen to see what's for my little guy's lunch. (and some for me too!) So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
