Each day AshleyH will call/post 5 randomly drawn words Each player should keep track of their list, but Ashley will track your list well. AshleyH will continue calling 5 words a day until there is at least one person that is 5 or less words close to a BINGO From this point, AshleyH will call/post one word at a time. After each word, AshleyH will check to see if anyone has BINGO. If not. she will call/post another word. One word will be called at a time until someone has BINGO.

A BINGO is when all 25 of your words have been called/posted by the hostess. If more than one person gets a BINGO on the same word, then the prize will go to the first person who posts "BINGO" on the forum message board. Remember the post are time & date stamped. You may also view the called/posted words on the Scrappy Jo Blog, but you can only play the game on the forum.

Some Father's Day Inspiration

Next month is Father's day and what better way to show the Dads in your life how much you love them by doing a layout about them! Check out these layouts from our Creative Team about those awesome men in their lives!

Ashley created this layout about her husband and kids fishing in the creek in their back yard. She used the new Grafton Line from Scenic Route, and Thickers from American Craft.

Wendy's layout celebrates the relationship her father has with her son Payton. She also used the new Grafton line from Scenic Route, and embellished the layout with Fancy Pants Felt Shapes and Thickers Playroom Felt Alphas.

Apryl's layout highlights the special connection between her oldest daughter and her husband. The Providence Line from Scenic Route was used to create a softer feel. She also used Thickers from American Crafts, and the Mod Stamps from Fancy Pants.

A note from Jo:

At Scrappy Jo's Scrapbook Supplies, we believe that the vast majority of people share common needs and desires from life. People are motivated to share the many joys experienced during their lifetime. Family, friends, pets or whatever brings you joy are all important aspects to living a full and satisfying life. Scrapbooking is a tool to help capture the moments we don't want to forget or the moments we wish to share with others.

It is the desire of Scrappy Jo's Scrapbook Supplies to not only provide you with a fun and creative way to record your moments in life, but to do so in an easy and cost effective way.

We invite you to shop our on-line store often, as nothing in life remains the same. It is wise to capture a moment before the moment is gone forever. And who knows, you just might find out what my favorite color is after all. But for now, I will share one of my favorite quotes: "A Birth certificate shows that you were born, A death certificate shows that you died, but scrapbooks show that you lived." Author: Unknown.
