A: Try wet paper crumpling for a new look in layering photos or title bars. Cut your card stock to the desired size for mounting, and then heavily spray both sides of the card stock with water. Crumple the strip of paper into a ball. Lay the card stock out on a flat surface to dry. The finished result will be a weathered look that will add texture to your scrapbook pages. And then if you want, you can do a direct to paper with classic ink over the edges for more drama and texture.
Seventeen-year-old Utah Mormon David Archuleta, one of two finalists in the singing contest American Idol, is experiencing what many other Latter-day Saint celebrities have faced before him. The Osmonds, golfing great Johnny Miller, singer Gladys Knight, Jeopardy! champion Ken Jennings, snowboarder Torah Bright, author Stephenie Meyer, and other high- profile Mormons have all had to deal with questions about their faith and their fame. How do they reconcile the two?

At an age when most major league prospects are either under contract or preparing for another year of college, one promising pitcher left Brigham Young University, entered the Missionary Training Center, and shut out baseball.

Q: How do I use the tearing technique on my projects?
A: Tearing creates a soft edge on paper or card stock, adds texture, and offers depth. It works especially well in collage, masculine, and heirloom layouts. Torn edges are a nice complement to photos in heirloom layouts. With masculine layouts, use rugged tears. (9/19/05) Here's how to tear paper or card stock to get the look you want:
Hold a piece of card stock in front of you with both hands.
Pull forward with one hand while pulling back with the other.
For more control, hold your fingers close together, use short pulling motions, and tear slowly. Keep your fingers further apart for a larger torn edge.
Practice on scrap paper until you're comfortable with tearing and can achieve the look you want.
Before I was a Mom, I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby. I didn't worry whether or not my plants were poisonous. I never thought about immunizations. Before I was a Mom, I had never been puked on. Pooped on. Chewed on. Peed on. I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts. I slept all night.. Before I was a Mom, I never held down a screaming child so doctors could do tests. Or give shots. I never looked into teary eyes and cried. I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin. I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep. Before I was a Mom, I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to put her down. I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn't stop the hurt. I never knew that something so small could affect my life so much. I never knew that I could love someone so much. I never knew I would love being a Mom. Before I was a Mom, I didn't know the feeling of having my heart outside my body. I didn't know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby. I didn't know that bond between a mother and her child. I didn't know that something so small could make me feel so important and happy. Before I was a Mom, I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay. I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache, the wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom. I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much, before I was a Mom.
I received one of those pay pal emails and just to be safe, I sent it to Paypal. It was not from Pay Pal ! It is a scam to get your information.
Do not click on any of the links in the email that is sent to you. They ask for your password and personal information and paypal never does that so don't let the look alike email fool you. One thing I noticed right away to night was the address it was a return address of .....@paypall.com our paypal account has no double ll's in the word.
This email wanted me to sign in and give my password saying that someone was using my account and the credit card. Well I don't even have a credit card on paypal so I knew right there it was a farce. Be very Careful.
And on another FRAUD note for internet and email, My son joined one of those singles groups and started corresponding with a gal named ANA from Russia. After 3 months she says she is coming to the USA and wanted to know the airport where to meet him at . Then 2 weeks later "she" emails him for 995.00 to be sent western union.
We found the fraud website where this is a scam possibly by the Russian Mafia and they can ask for money under 1,000.00 to stay out of the Interpole Radar. So inform your friends your family and especially the men in your life.
If you want this website address feel free to email me for it and I will gladly share and then you can show it to your friends too!
I share this info so that my friends and their families are protected from internet and email FRAUD.
Have a great day! It's grocery store day for me today. ARGH! With the cost of things and gas, all the fun of going shopping is now totally gone for me. I will only buy necessary items that I can use with my homemade gourmet mixes and save money and prep time! Milk & Dairy, eggs and meat and fresh fruit and veggies will be it for my list this week!
