Sorry I haven't been posting, not that I think that many people read my blog :) I have been busy with family, home and of course getting ready for school to start back up in a couple more weeks. I took a break to sign up for the annual August free class on Big Picture Scrapbooking. There are a ton of great, pretty cheap ideas.
Here is what Stacy J had on here blog about the class
The BPS August Promotion is HERE. Our theme this year is Busy Women Out of Time, On a Budget and Still Inspired. You can READ additional thoughts on the BPS blog.
Anyone relate? Grab your timer, set it for 15 minutes and come check it out. Then come back often throughout August. There are so many wonderful ideas to soak in and try. We have AMAZING teachers who are dedicated to your scrapbooking success and they've generously donated their time and talents this month, so you can get to know them better.
and I'm pretty happy to say I got:
Your result for The Commonly Confused Words Test ...
You scored 93% Beginner, 100% Intermediate, 87% Advanced, and 80% Expert!
You did so extremely well, even I can't find a word to describe your excellence! You have the uncommon intelligence necessary to understand things that most people don't. You have an extensive vocabulary, and you're not afraid to use it properly! Way to go!
Thank you so much for taking my test. I hope you enjoyed it!

So today I am back at work after a 4 day weekend and I got a lot done, especially since I am sick :)
I have had an entertainment center from Freecycle in the truck for a few weeks. I finally got Elisa's room rearranged enough to put it in there. It will hold her tape player, tv, puppets (the bottom works great as a puppet theater) and movies.
This week I want to finish organizing her room and tackle the storage unit since some of her old stuff will be going in there.
Started LOM 2009 and found an AWESOME program, ACDSee. More posts about what I've done with that to come.
The next few months will be filled with tackles based on LOM. This week I need to continue my Lesson 1 assignments, mainly sorting photos by year and backing up digital photos.
Have been grading Reading Lions' test and have to get those inputted.
This week I have to get some emergency sub plans ready
http://lauriesscraps.blogspot.com/ and http://www.moriginalsblog.com/
Both have AWESOME templates not only for Project365 but for multi photo layouts.
One problem, I ended up with the malwear XP Police Antivirus on my computer! The site used to transfer the files seems to be the issue. My hubby was able to find the fix last night here and installed Norton on my laptop since my McAfee didn't stop the program.
So all in all I am excited for the templated but reminded of the importance of up to date antivirus software and backing up your computer :)
Off to create with some of my goodies :) night
LOM, or Library Of Memories, is the BigPictureScrapbooking.com class taught by Stacy Julian. It is by far the best value in scrapbooking because I have gotten to take it not once, not twice but 3 times for one fee. I hope to get my LOM fine tuned this session and get pages completed. Want to join me in the LOM journey? Grab a copy of Stacy's latest book, Photo Freedom here and jump in :)
