LOAD ~ Day 16, 17, 18, and 19

Here is the Day 16 layout.  The prompt for this layout was "People In My Neighborhood".  Since we have such a great neighborhood I thought it would be fun to do a layout from one of the neighborhood activities.  Since I've been salivating over My Creative Time's new stamp release (all about Easter) these photos immediately came to mind!

And, for anyone that's curious about those My Creative Time stamps and HERE and it will take you right to Miss Emma's store and you can see all of the awesome items she has to offer.  I love her products.  She's a small business woman and takes sincere pride in what she is doing.  If you have an issue, SHE will call you herself (and I speak from experience...I was too blonde to get a gift certificate to work, but Miss Emma helped me out!!!).  I get no payment or product for this endorsement!  I just really love her products and think you will too!

I ordered some additional digital content today for Story Book Creator, and once the LOAD Challenge is finished I think I will probably upgrade to SBC 4.0.  If anyone out there is interested in the Creative Memories software (or other items) and needs a CM Consultant, let me know!  My good friend Laura is a consultant and she'd be happy to help you out.

Here is Day 17.  The prompt was "When I Grow Up".  I finally found the book that contains many childhood photos, so it's time to scan them and scrap them.  Did I mention that I'm really starting to adore digital scrap booking?  Yeah, well....I am.

Here's a few things I love about this page.  First of all, the papers and such came from the new content that I downloaded, so that's kinda fun to be using that.  Second, I figured out how to scan directly into Memory Manger, using my multi-function scanner/copier/fax/printer.  I figured I'd have to scan, save, import to MM...NOPE!  You can use the "Get Photos From" and pick scanner.  Awesomely cool!

Day 18:  This is a page that I will use for a book about me for my kids to have.  I scanned these photos from the book that I got the Day 17 photos from.

Day 19:  This prompt was about ones and old ones.  I always thought it would be fun for my childhood friends to meet my friends here.  I think we'd all have a great time.  This layout only has a few of my awesome girl friends.  I need to start taking more photos!  I guess since I had gotten out of the scrap booking habit I also slacked off on taking photos.

Hope you enjoy the posts this week.  I can't believe the LOAD Challenge is almost over!  In today's video, Lain said "Only 10 more days" and I could not believe it!  Only 10 more????!!!  I hope that I can do at least 4-6 layouts per month after this.  I have really enjoyed learning a lot about SBC and digital scrap booking.  I will definitely do the next LOAD Challenge when it's offered.  If you have any questions, please leave a comment and I'll try to help  you!  If you're interested in Lain's LOAD Challenge, click HERE to find out about all of the classes Lain offers.

Here's the schedule for my blog this week...Wednesday and Friday will be crafty posts, Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday will be layouts.  Once I'm done with LOAD you will probably see less scrapbooking posts and more crafty ones.  If you're not into scrapping, bear with me!

Happy Crafting!
