How do I show my work, should I post it on my website and post the link, or
is there a person i should send it to?
I have to pages I dont know how else to embelish! I took pictures, but I
need some help!
Marie, most of us use Webshots, Picturetrail or Yahoo for our own work but I
expect you could use your own webspace and post a link in your signature.
The LO's posted on the NG website are the Monthly Challenges etc. we
undertake and there is good information on the website regarding the process
for those. I am sure that M-C will fill in any gaps for you.
Most share their work via Webshots, Yahoo Pictures, Picture Trail, or their
own personal website. I see that you have your own home webpage, so I am
sure you could post your work to that site. Just list the link in your
signature line and let us know when you did something new. Hope to see your
First let me say that I love what you've done with the beach LO. The
chalking is very pretty and I love the way you set the boys on the sand.
Frankly, I think the only thing that each of them needs, and it's a really
cheap solution, is a little journalling either handwritten or typed,
centered in the empty space!
You're layouts are lovely Marie! The only thing I would add is some
journaling in your empty space. I love how you've put your boys "in" the
sand! And your'e chalking on the beach layout is wonderful. I never would
have guessed it was chalking! It looks like a patterened paper!
Well with all of my pages, I still haven't journaled. I was waiting till the
end. I don't know if I should hand write or type, the few that are complete
will be handwritten seeing that they are already placed, but the beach and
bathtime ones could be either or. But I know the journaling is needed, with
the Benjamin page, I have the two blocks set up for journaling, and the
Matthew page has the same thing, also the lily page. I guess I get carried
away with setting the pages up, that I don't want to take the time to write
stuff out. It was funny how all of you noticed I had no journaling, lol, I
just haven't finished that part yet...lol
Thanks for the tips, I am heading to the Stamp store soon, Have to pick up
some papers, and some stickers~ Also I want to buy some Calligraphy pens,
I will post the finished pages when I am finished!
Thanks for the encouraging comments~~!
Love your work Marie! On the page with the baby and the bubbles, Maybe
in your bare spot,do your journaling on a big bubble ?
Great looking kiddos ,too.

I think either handwritten or typed journalling will work. I have done all of
my journaling by hand so far. Sometimes I use Stencils to give it a more even
feel. I am currently working on a layout that will have typed journalling
because I want to try some new fonts. I think typed journaling can be more
formal also. I guess this is a long winded way of saying it depends on what
technique you want to try and what feel you want for the pages.
I think your pages are great. They are going to be a great way to remember
I used to have a nice handwriting, but after years of having to take
telephone many requests for copies of birth and death certificates, my
handwriting as deteriorated badly. I also have arthritis, which sometimes
makes it difficult to write neatly. Consequently, I love using my computer
for journaling. For my mother's scrapbook (finished!), I used Comic Sans MS
12. It doesn't look like a typical font, so it's not "boring." Also,
because I wanted this to be readable (Mom is 83 and has macular
degeneration), I didn't want it to be too funky.
I've also just received a CD of fonts, which I need to take a look at. And,
if any of you have Lucida Handwriting, that's a nice font. Unfortunately,
that font no longer comes standard with Word - and I miss it. I think my
mother has it in her Word; I gave her my computer buying a new one a couple
of years ago. I've noticed that font is no longer available in the Word
program at work, too.
