Phone Tag! Check in here!

Ok, ladies, here it is, our first round of Phone Tag! We had so many people sign up (23) I decided to break it off into 2 groups, otherwise it could take 3 months to finish.

Here is a recap of the rules again, with a few modifications - I didn't realize I wasn't allowed to collect and distribute e-mail addy's because I'm not a mod, so we'll do this all via PM instead Smile

1) Scraplift the person that goes before you. Remember, it's a scraplift, not a copycat, so have fun with your lift and make it yours.

2) You will have 4 days to complete your layout. If you cannot complete it in that time, let me know and we'll move your place in the line (this is so the game keeps moving and doesn't take forever).

3) Send a photo/copy of your layout VIA PM to the next person on the list and myself. You will need to host it on a site such as photobucket, flickr, etc. Please label it as "your_screen_name-title" and don't share it on the board til the end of the game (to keep the surprise). If you can include your group number on it in your PM to me, that would be extremely helpful as well!

4) Once you have completed your layout and passed it on, post in this thread that you have finished so we can keep track.

5) HAVE FUN!

At the end of the game of tag, I'll post all the layouts, in order, so we can see the progression and how the pages have changed.

Both groups will start out with the same page to scraplift first, and we'll see how they progress to the finish!

Without further ado, here are the groups and order:

Group #1

Trina -- somehow I think it's unfair that you get to see how this all progresses before us! LOL

Wink

Lauren -- way to go on getting yours done already!

Sorry i haven't checked in.... i have been majorly stressed out this week with work and daycare. I got an unexpected call on Monday that tomorrow is our last day with the daycare (it's a home daycare) and i don't have any family down here and all my "friends" i have here work. The daycare had to close because they couldn't afford to stay there any longer. I am just so upset because I love them so much and they take great care of my kids. I am having a very difficult time being sympathetic with them because they've put me in a REALLY bad predicament! I have 2 weeks left of work until the summer....
My mom (who lives in NY) may have to come down for a week just to watch my kids!! I'm just really really upset over this. And now I have to find another daycare in a couple of months and it's sooo hard to find someone you trust and is affordable.

Anyways..... I realize that today marks 4 days of me getting the layout to scraplift, so i will sit down tonight and do it so it can be on it's merry way.

I still have to send the winner of my challenge her prize too... AHH!! I will do that too... I am totally stressed right now and I feel like I could just cry.

Linda I am SO sorry!!! :bigarmhug: How can they not give you at least 30 days notice? Is that not in your contract?? I know you don't want them to close regardless but they should be owing you some money....if you are losing so much money you need to go out of business you know for a while...not just the day before you phone someone....that's totally out of order in my books.
I'm sorry you're stuck in this spot. Too bad you are so far. I could've filled in. lol

That really sucks Linda! I had to find a new daycare awhiel ago too, but they gave me m ore notice.

If you need more time, we can move your spot on the list, not a problem - just let me know.

Karen-

The girls tried everything they could to save their place... they just weren't bringing in enough money to pay for all of the bills. (There is a high population of home daycares here.. and i think with the economy the way it is, it was just soo hard for them to get kids. The less people working means the demand for childcare just isn't there). As for waiting until the last minute... they knew they were struggling financially but they really tried to work with their rental office, but they wouldn't budge. The contract probably says 2 weeks, but I'm not going to go after them or anything. I'm hoping they can one day open up the daycare again because I really want my kids there and Cadence absolutely loves them.. when we pull up to their place she says "I'm Home!" My mom is willing to make the drive down, but I'm trying to get the girls to watch my kids at my house... but it seems like my mom has already planned to come down... if they can watch them, how do I tell my mom i don't need her afterall? Oh well.....

Anyways... i have done my scraplift and have sent it to the next person (Andrea - Andy1784)

Linda, I'm so sorry. What a frustrating situation. As for your mom vs girls, if it were me, I'd let my mom come and help.

Shannon, how is that page coming? Wink

Wow Linda! What a drama and how stressful!

Can you do half days with the babysitting for these couple of weeks? Explain to your mom you really want to help these girls out, but you also want her company and for her to spend time with the kids. It would give your babysitting girls a couple of weeks of at least a little pay, but also the freedom to search for jobs or whatever they need.

Thanks, I got the page this morning. I'm at work, but I was able to view it and I'm excited to try it. I think I'll have it done today.

I'm working on mine right now! Very cute job you did Linda, one wouldn't know you have been under so much stress lately. I know when my head isn't in it my work is horrible. I am inspired for this one though so hopefully it will show through in the LO. It does kind of suck that we can't share them right away but boy does it build the anticipation for later, I am so excited to see them all in a row. I'm so glad you split the groupos Trina, waiting 3 months would drive me batty!

:bigarmhug: Linda! I hope everything works out for you.

I agree that I wish I could share mine...I also wanted an opinion on maybe adding something to it. I guess when we are all done I can ask my question about adding the something.

At least I won't have to wait too long before I see where someone takes the page I create. I think the suspense must be horrible for some of you ladies who are all ready done!
