    Happy Friday!

    Prayers and pixie dust to all those in need.

    Didn't sleep well last night, so off to a slow start this morning.

    Today:

    caffinate and recaffinate
    checkbook
    clean off counters, why does everyone pile things up?:confused3
    sort pictures
    start scrapping, I think I will catch up in Julia's school book first since I have been getting lectures about not finishing 7th grade yet.;)
    Dinner? don't want to think about it yet

    Hope everyone has a great day!

    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:

    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:

    Today:
    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!!

    Becky,

    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:

    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...

    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 @ gmail.com

    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. ;)

    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!

    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...

    Glad to hear you figured it out! Good luck with the cutting. FYI, my E2 is VERY slow with the Craftroom for cutting. I prefer to transfer files to the Gypsy and cut from there.
