Solution to problems posting comments...

I have had a couple of people emailing me with regards to not being able to post on my blog.  It seems that when they wanted to post a comment, Blogger kept taking them back to the sign in page and the comment was never posted. 

You can try using an internet browser other than Explorer 9.  Otherwise, you can try this solution:
  1. Go to the blog post, and make the comment as usual.
  2. When the "sign in" window appears, sign in with your info... BUT UN-CHECK the "Stay Signed In" box.
I hope this works!  I know it has worked for others :)

"Shabby Chic Garden" Coffee Sleeve Mini Album

I have finally finished my "Shabby Chic Garden" mini album created using coffee sleeves for the last swap that I entered over at Life on the {Scrap}beach.  This swap was hosted by Irene Cordova...Thanks, Irene, for being such a fantastic hostess!!!

The swap included two parts.  In part one, Irene put us in groups of six.  Each member of the group was responsible for creating six identical kits for one page of the album.  We then each sent in five of the kits, and received five back - one from each of the other five members of our group.

In part two of the swap, Irene assigned 3 sets of partners within each group.  We then created a mini album using only the supplies in our kits and mailed it to our partners.  My partner was Ginger can check out the beautiful mini she created for me on her YouTube channel at "MySistersScrapper", and by clicking the following link:

So, you say, "What does your mini look like, Monique?"  Well, my mini looks so completely different than Ginger''s crazy!  We had the same supplies!  Here are a few pictures to give you a sneak peek at the album:

If you would like to see the complete mini album, I have posted a two-part video on my YouTube channel.  You can find these videos by clicking on the following links:
