Have you heard about the Amazing DigiScrap Race?

I hadn't until last night.. see this is why I need a network of friends to tell me about events on other digi sites!

Anyway it sounds so cool..."Teams of two will traverse the digital scrap booking world, site by site, completing challenges and collecting prizes along the way. Everyone who completes the week’s challenges in the allotted time frame will move on to the next week, where they can collect even MORE prizes! And at the end of the race, everyone who has traveled around the digital scrap booking world and completed each and every challenge will be entered into a drawing for the GRAND prize!"

So go check out Natural Designs in Scrapbooking (NDISB), find yourself a partner -mine is Cara from Cara Olson Designs - and sign up!

I will see you on the starting line!!

Speed Scrap Tonight!!!!!!

Hey I just saw there is a speed scrap tonight over at Scrap Matters. Speed scraps are my favorite, not for the prizes but for the directions and to beat the clock! Unlike most people I do the speed scrap as the directions are posted, which usually makes me one of the first ones done...unless of course my son is screaming.

So join me over in the forum at Scrap Matters for Speed Scrap #188.

And if you know of other speed scraps or events on other sites, please let me know!

Happy Wednesday

Well I'm going to finish up the new snowflake alpha, decide on a name, zip it and give it away on facebook to a bunch of people! I'd still like to make a full kit with it, so we'll see.

Hope everyone is well and you are all working on Project 365! here's a few of my layouts with the templates.

And don't worry, if you missed the template give-a-way I'll be making more.

Show me what you are doing with your 365 templates send them too living.scrappily.ever.after at gmail dot com

Free Calendar Template!

I have been creating 12x12 calendar pages for my mom every month with photos of our family. She brings them to work and has it under her clear blotter. I figure as long as I'm creating them I should share them!

Become a fan of Scrappily Ever After on Facebook by January 8, 2010 and receive these 10 free project 365 templates!

Those who join and leave a comment might even get a few extra goodies!

Here's how I've been using the templates.

I used
WM [squared] Vintage Love Letters - alpha
Ezane - ezdate tabs & border dates
other elements from Amelie Scrap

I saw a similar background and recreated it using CU textures so I could put whatever elements I want in the corners. Each month I'll change the elements behind the 2nd paper and shadow for a different look.

Hope to see you on facebook! I spend a lot of time over there.. maybe I can be in your mafia or your neighbor in yoville.

I have had a very trying month in December so my scrapping time was limited. I decided to start the New Year strong, doing project 365 and getting back into challenges at Scrap Matters.

As I was checking out the new kits in the Scrap Matter's shop I found this AWESOME kit. I clicked on it and low and behold it was done by AnnaBV! I have been so out of it I didn't even know she did this kit. Check it out it is prefect for your New Year's Resolutions.

she also has matching alphabets and an add on

If you go to Anna's Blog she has a numbers freebie to go with the kit!

Here is what I made SO FAR with this kit

AnnaBV Resolutions

I was the one who actually gave Anna the idea for this kit because I was looking for a kit to use to celebrate my 3rd Anniversary of quitting smoking. She expanded the idea and Resolutions was born. I am sure I'll be creating more and more designs with this kit!

Wishing you all a happy and healthy new year!

disclosure: Being on AnnaBV Creative Team I received this product for free but that does not influence how much I really love this kit.

More backup information

I have TWO external hard drives... and a long time again when I had none, my computer crashed and I lost many photos of when I first started dating my husband. So there is no way I want to lose the photos of my son, so I have two.

In posting my 'public service announcement' on a bunch of boards yesterday, some ladies started talking about Mozy...I never heard of them so I checked it out.

I did -not- sign up for it YET but I'm thinking..yeah I need a 3rd backup in case of a fire! yeah that's it!

I don't get any special reward points or anything for telling you about this, I just thought it was very useful information!

Now go back up your back up!

Back up your files!

I'd just like to remind everyone to back up your photos and scrap files to an external hard drive.... and when you can, buy a 2nd external hard drive to back up your first!

You never know when your computer or your hard drive is just going to go fry. So to prevent crying and thousands of dollars to try to find someone to retrieve your memories... BACK UP YOUR WORK!

This has been a public service announcement.
