I have conquered technology!

It is no secret that technology and I are not on great speaking terms. Awhile ago my photo-printer stopped talking to my computer and I haven't been able to retrieve photos from my camera. I have been able to print which was good enough up to a point. I spent more hours than I should admit making the interface work again. Yeah, I can now upload photos, tweak them a bit, post here and there as well as save them on my computer and on disk. I should have been cleaning my pantry but this was more important.

I've still managed to be creative. I am a member of Club Scrap and am currently in the Camp Yah- Hey-n-So, cabin three. Each week we are given a challenge and create layouts using primarily Club Scrap supplies. Each cabin posts their layouts, points are calculated and winning cabins receive discounts from Club Scrap. I put together 3 two-page layouts for this week's before and after challenge. My subjects were strawberries turned into jam and the "jam-isms" that we came up with as we got tired of looking at strawberries; Christmas before the opening and after the opening of gifts-even with only four kids at the time we still made a mess; and before and after my brother had a meal at Texas Roadhouse.

In addition to the challenge layouts we can post any layouts for single points. This week we also had an Arts & Crafts challenge and made cards. I made about 15 so far, I'll post some of my favorites. Then I really need to get to my pantry so I can play guilt-free some more with my paper.

This card is Club Scrap paper from the Matrix collection with Stampin' Up stamps.
