Sorry you had a rough night's sleep Cassey. I hate those nights.

I need to start plugging away on DS16's school book.. I need to inventory.. I did a lot when I was doing PJ's albums but I don't know how far I got before I had to dedicate my full attention to getting her books done... I've only got a little over 1.5 years till he will graduate... :faint:

Poppins2000 11-02-2012 09:25 AM

I'm with you Cassey, not feeling it this morning, blah,blah, blah - today's mantra - haha! At least we get an extra hour this weekend :cool1:

put away the Halloween decor - break out the Thanksgiving!
finish washing the bed linens
make copies of Old Family Movie disc #4 for everyone

Praying nothing breaks in my china cabinet as the USAF Thunderbirds have been practicing for this weekends air show for last 30 minutes, screaming directly over ahead. I can practically WAVE to the pilot they are so close. Oh yea, I'm in the flight landing path for Homestead Air Base, 5 miles a way...actually I whine about it but I really do secretly love it, HAHAHA!:rotfl2:

Have a great weekend all - remember to set back your clocks Saturday night, time to "Fall Back!"

Hi back at ya Nan!!


PrincessNancy96 11-02-2012 09:30 AM


I told my youngest you were down near Homestead.. He asked when we were going to visit so he could see the base... LOL He is a military boy... He is determined to join when he graduates.. I'm hoping in 9 years I can talk him into going to college first..

Hope there is no damage with them today!! We had them fly over one year at the beginning of the start of my DS16's soccer game.. the kids were all looking at them fly over when the ref blew the whistle and got mad at the kids for not starting the game... they were all looking skyward! :lmao:

Reddy 11-02-2012 09:45 AM

hmmm Becky can you get a picture of the pilot?? that just might be a great LO :lmao:
OK I"m running late go to get to work
a friend on facebook said to tell people something good today to make their day better - I thought that was a good idea & I hpe some of ya will join me in doing that today while we are out & about

so work then home to inkscape (I hope I found something yesterday that will work)

Hi gang.. ugh up late watch the CMA's doesn't make for a very lively girl the next day!

Hope everyone has a fab day and awesome weekend.. Don't forget to "fall" back with your clockes - we all get 1 extra hour of sleep!!

PrincessNancy96 11-02-2012 10:44 AM

Have a good day at work Michelle...

I think I have figured out my wordbook.. I will cut it out after lunch to see for sure... If not, it's back to the drawing board tonight after dinner... Unfortunately, the tutorial I found... is awesome..but the tabs are different in my craftroom then her craftroom... so it's not doing what hers did...

morgansmom2000 11-02-2012 10:50 AM

Oy! TGIF. I had a horrible night last night. DH took my car to get an inspection sticker yesterday and forgot to turn the lights off when we got to Friday's for dinner. My battery was D.E.A.D. when we finished. Had to go home and get tools, go back to the car, go back home and get more appropriate tools, go back to the car, remove the battery, go to the auto parts store ($101 on a new battery), go back to the car and put the new battery in...I wasn't feeling well anyway, but that just made my night bad. Plus, my car needs new tires before they will give me an inspection sticker...Just when I think I'm getting ahead, something comes along and slaps me back into reality. So much for my new Cameo :sad2:

I'm at work. Boss is in a slightly better mood, because he finally got his power back. I'm counting the minutes to 4:30.

Hope everyone has a great weekend. Got to do some cleaning and shopping, but no big plans.

I'm so sorry for a rough night Jennifer... That had to be a real pain...

Do you happen to know how to see layers in the craftroom??

I'm making a word book but when I label the layers.. I can see them as a book, KWIM?

Um...Do you have the "eye" selected on all of the layers? Can you email me the file? I may be able to see what you mean if I can look at it. Email is my screen name @

PrincessNancy96 11-02-2012 10:59 AM

I will verify I have the eye selected.. if not, I will email you.. Thank you so much...
I just started using Craftroom so I'm clueless.. Thank you.

morgansmom2000 11-02-2012 11:00 AM

No problem. I'm not sure if that's what you need to do, I'm happy to help. It's similar enough to Design Studio that I "get" it, but it is a bit confusing if you're just getting started. ;)

PrincessNancy96 11-02-2012 11:02 AM

I had the "eye" selected.. but in the tutorial.. It said to move the pieces so layer 1 was on the left, then layer 2, etc...
but in mine since I don't have the mat layer option on my side tool bar and instead is on top of my mat... I tried to just move it so my last layer was 1, then went back wards til my top layer was on the far right... and viola!!! It worked...

Thank you so much Jennifer...

So, excited.. it looks good... now to cut it out after lunch!

PrincessNancy96 11-02-2012 11:03 AM

I had DS... but didn't realize when I upgrade to the E2 that I could no longer use it... So, this is like my 3rd time using the craftroom...
