Happy Sunday. Today I&#39;m here to share some super simple scrapbook pages with you. I made these three pages in an hour (or two?) one afternoon last week. I&#39;ve probably said this before, but my favorite way to scrapbook is current and FAST. It&#39;s so much easier to scrapbook things that just happened. So even though I am trying to catch up on past, years I am prioritizing THIS year at the top so that I can stay caught up from here on out.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Here are three simple pages I made. They all involve full page photos and stamping.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb0810d490970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img alt=\"Scrapbook Sunday \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201bb0810d490970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb0810d490970d-800wi\" title=\"Scrapbook Sunday \" /></span></a>My friend <a href=\"http://www.kellypurkey.com\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Kelly Purkey</span></a> just sent me a bunch of stamps that she designed.

Jeg savner ham så meget at alle ord er som drænet fra mig.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 13pt;\">Min far skabte sig ved egne stædige kræfter et usædvanligt liv. Et liv fyldt med eventyr, historier og gode venskaber. Som jeg sagde i den fyldte kirke i fredags var min far aldrig nærrig med sine kræfter. Han kastede sig ind i livets udfordringer, også når livet bød på modgang. Hans liv blev bedre end de flestes. Det ved jeg fra dybe samtaler at han selv tænkte. Alligevel er det forenklet at sige at han fik et godt liv. Min far skabte sig selv et godt liv og valgte at se det sådan, også selvom hans liv bød på meget modstand og mange sorger.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 13pt;\">Min far skabte sig selv et godt liv og fik en rigtig god død som gave. Alle der kender min far den mindste smule ved at den død han fik var den bedst tænkelig. At dø pludseligt, i godt humør og uden at have været nogen til byrde er, når det skal være, en god død. Min far var ikke bange for døden. Han vidste at den pludseligt kunne komme og så den roligt i øjnene.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 13pt;\">Tilbage står vi fire søskende. Min søster og jeg mistede <a href=\"http://badut.typepad.com/badut/2013/04/i-sorg.html\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Min mors død\">vores mor</a> sidste år og den sorg, der endnu ikke er mildnet af tiden blusser op når vi går der i huset mellem alle de ting, der bære på deres historier. Det er svært. </span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 13pt;\">Tungt, trist og tomt.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 13pt;\">På Badut bliver her stille. Der er ikke mange ord i mig for tiden og det tænker jeg godt I forstår.</span></p>",

Et liv fyldt med eventyr, historier og gode venskaber. Som jeg sagde i den fyldte kirke i fredags var min far aldrig nærrig med sine kræfter. Han kastede sig ind i livets udfordringer, også når livet bød på modgang. Hans liv blev bedre end de flestes. Det ved jeg fra dybe samtaler at han selv tænkte. Alligevel er det forenklet at sige at han fik et godt liv. Min far skabte sig selv et godt liv og valgte at se det sådan, også selvom hans liv bød på meget modstand og mange sorger.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 13pt;\">Min far skabte sig selv et godt liv og fik en rigtig god død som gave. Alle der kender min far den mindste smule ved at den død han fik var den bedst tænkelig. At dø pludseligt, i godt humør og uden at have været nogen til byrde er, når det skal være, en god død. Min far var ikke bange for døden. Han vidste at den pludseligt kunne komme og så den roligt i øjnene.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 13pt;\">Tilbage står vi fire søskende.

Det er svært. </span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 13pt;\">Tungt, trist og tomt.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 13pt;\">På Badut bliver her stille.

It was an amazing conference. However, what you like don’t know is that one other woman traveled with us that year. She happened to phone me and I mentioned the conference. The next day she called me and said, “I want to go with you.” So, she did!!! Her name is Heidi and I have known her for years. Several years ago her family moved into the house directly behind mine. And her husband is my dentist.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>It truly is a small world at times.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Anyhoo, Heidi is an amazing woman of faith and has traveled some difficult journeys. She is on one of those unexpected journeys right now. A month ago, doctors detected a brain tumor, not cancerous, but aggressive that is growing behind her right ear. She is scheduled for surgery on March 31. They will remove the tumor but they must do so at the expense of her hearing in her right ear.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Heidi called me about six weeks ago and I have been praying for her. And since that time, God has placed a project firmly on my mind. I can’t ignore any longer the Lord’s request. So, here is where this amazing community of brothers and sister, Sons and Daughters, of the King come into the picture.&#0160;</p>\r\n<div class=\"photo-wrap photo-xid-6a00d83451ee9f69e201b7c76c20a3970b\" id=\"photo-xid-6a00d83451ee9f69e201b7c76c20a3970b\" style=\"float: right; margin: 0px 5px 5px 0px; width: 250px;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.spirituallyunequalmarriage.com/.a/6a00d83451ee9f69e201b7c76c20a3970b-pi\"><img alt=\"IMG_2616[1]\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d83451ee9f69e201b7c76c20a3970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.spirituallyunequalmarriage.com/.a/6a00d83451ee9f69e201b7c76c20a3970b-250wi\" style=\"width: 250px;\" title=\"IMG_2616[1]\" /></a>\r\n<div class=\"photo-caption caption-xid-6a00d83451ee9f69e201b7c76c20a3970b\" id=\"caption-xid-6a00d83451ee9f69e201b7c76c20a3970b\">Spring Tree</div>\r\n</div>\r\n<p>I recently purchased a fun tree.

The Lord is leading me to have the tree set up, loaded with notes, cards, prayers and eggs to surprise her when she returns home from the hospital.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>So, today my friends, would you write a prayer, a note of hope, anything that I can print off and attach to the tree for Heidi. Dineen and I would be so thankful that you would help us to overwhelm Heidi with this kind of surprise.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>I will take photos and share them with you sometime in early April.

Dit bleek althans tijdens de gemeenteraad gisterenavond. Daar haalde N-VA scherpt uit naar de Gemeentebelangen maar ook naar CD&amp;V en Open VLD die volgens de partij jarenlang de noodkreten van de bewoners in de wijk vogelzang naast zich neer legden.</p>\r\n<p>In november 2014 is het Agentschap Wonen Vlaanderen langs geweest in Vogelzang een wijk in onze deelgemeente Knokke.&#0160; Het verslag van het agentschap is verwoestend voor de eigenaar van de woningen.

The end of Spring Break looms----PE clothes, showers, laundry, to-do lists. My day though? Absolutely incredible. I send waves of love to Bob Rasmus for bringing David Olney to his church...absolutely amazing day....</p>\r\n<p>I was glad to see a good crowd at the Palm Sunday service....Ann said it included a lot of new faces. Watching Bob in his element is a joy. He welcomed new folks and explained what was happening. He did a reading and then David began Jerusalem Tomorrow. That song can give one chills any time but in this setting? Yes. The service continued with readings and then David performing the songs. I have listened to The Stone, as well as many of the individual songs, so many times...but hearing it within the context of the readings was literally mind blowing. Even though I had known the context when I had listened to it before...this was powerful, powerful stuff.</p>\r\n<p>I snapped one furtive shot while Bob was welcoming people....it didn&#39;t feel right to photograph once the service started....</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://thesandwichlife.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341c632053ef01b8d0f7ba33970c-pi\"><img alt=\"FullSizeRender\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341c632053ef01b8d0f7ba33970c image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://thesandwichlife.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341c632053ef01b8d0f7ba33970c-800wi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"FullSizeRender\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>David came and sat with us for the end of the service. I couldn&#39;t help but think of all those years that I was such a fan and never managed to go see him live....never could have imagined sitting in church with him. The paths life leads us on are so unexpected.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>A couple of his songs made me almost cry but they weren&#39;t really sad tears, just the power of the song&#39;s emotions, but as we got close to communion I did get very teary missing my father. Somehow communion brings back those last few years of his to me. For those of you that didn&#39;t know me then, from about 2006, until he died in 2008, I took my father to church, at St. Patrick&#39;s Catholic Church in Urbana, every week. It was when he wasn&#39;t able to drive anymore because of his Alzheimer&#39;s and I&#39;m grateful beyond words that I did it, but it was sometimes very, very, very hard. Somehow Ernie and I only got one bulletin for the service this morning, and when I held it open for him to see, I automatically started pointing out where we were....because my Dad would get confused and I had to do that for him. When I first started taking my father to church, we would both get up to take communion, but as the months passed, we eventually moved to the front pew where all we had to do was stand...and Dad insisted on standing no matter how hard and slow it was for him to get up. It was the best gift I could give him at that point, just bringing him there and sitting with him....but the memories are hard and I did cry a bit...missing him, and missing the him of earlier years.</p>\r\n<p>Powerful, powerful stuff. All of it.</p>\r\n<p>Driving home Ernie suggested lunch so we picked up the boys and had a quick lunch at Fries and Peanuts. We got home and I realized I had left virtually no time to cook for the potluck so I threw together a salad with my favorite Asian dressing...luckily we had pretty greens from Farmer Greg.</p>\r\n<p>I was thrilled to see a good crowd when we returned for the 3:00 performance...with many familiar AND unfamiliar faces! I gotta say David sounded wonderful.....his voice sounded so beautifully expressive. I realized that this is the first time I&#39;d ever seen him without Sergio. While we of course missed our beloved Sergio, it was interesting to hear the differences....I don&#39;t know if it was differences in his performance or just differences in the way I listened...but either way he was great. Truly great.&#0160;That&#39;s my boy.</p>\r\n<p>Owen and Sophie did a great job at the merch table and he sold a fair amount of stuff I think which pleased me as well. After chatting with friends we eventually tumbled home and here I sit. Owen just ate leftover pizza for dinner---I&#39;m such a great Mom....and God knows what Ernie and I are having. I think I&#39;m still full....from lunch and from the experiences of the whole day.</p>\r\n<p>Thanks and love to Ann and Bob Rasmus, David Olney, and everyone that shared this and felt the same way.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://thesandwichlife.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341c632053ef01bb081205bc970d-pi\"><img alt=\"IMG_2207\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341c632053ef01bb081205bc970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://thesandwichlife.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341c632053ef01bb081205bc970d-800wi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"IMG_2207\" /></a><br /> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://thesandwichlife.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341c632053ef01b7c76e1df6970b-pi\"><img alt=\"IMG_2207\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341c632053ef01b7c76e1df6970b image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://thesandwichlife.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341c632053ef01b7c76e1df6970b-800wi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"IMG_2207\" /></a><br /> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://thesandwichlife.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341c632053ef01b7c76e1e0f970b-pi\"><img alt=\"IMG_2207\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341c632053ef01b7c76e1e0f970b image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://thesandwichlife.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341c632053ef01b7c76e1e0f970b-800wi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"IMG_2207\" /></a><br /> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://thesandwichlife.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341c632053ef01b8d0f7ba77970c-pi\"><img alt=\"IMG_2207\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341c632053ef01b8d0f7ba77970c image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://thesandwichlife.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341c632053ef01b8d0f7ba77970c-800wi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"IMG_2207\" /></a></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 8pt;\"><em>I bet David and Bob could talk for hours.

As a couple of you pointed out, it&#39;s so amazing how another person who&#39;s close to God will say just exactly what you need to hear. It&#39;s like -- of COURSE that&#39;s God talking to you. How could it not be?</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">OBVIOUSLY that doesn&#39;t mean that everything that comes out of the mouth of somebody who goes to your church or is a pastor or who is just a wise person comes directly from God. Here&#39;s how you can tell that you ARE getting a God message:</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; * You&#39;ve been struggling with something -- it&#39;s been worrying you or you can&#39;t get it out of your mind so you&#39;ve prayed about it -- and somebody gives you an answer without you even asking. The person doesn&#39;t even know you&#39;ve been thinking about it. God-thing.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; * You&#39;re trying to make up your mind about something, like maybe how to tell your best friend she&#39;s driving you nuts or whether to tell your mom that your older sister is texting her boyfriend after lights-out.&#0160; You haven&#39;t discussed it with anybody -- definitely not your PASTOR -- but he preaches a sermon on honesty that very SUNDAY and it&#39;s like he&#39;s been reading your journal. God-thing.<br /></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; * You make a private decision but you&#39;re not sure how to carry it out and the next thing you know, a song comes on the radio that inspires you to go for it, or there&#39;s an episode about that very thing on your fave TV show, or you open a book you&#39;ve read, like, five times and there&#39;s a line about doing the very thing you&#39;re waffling about. Where was THAT before? God-thing.<br /></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">We really shouldn&#39;t be all that surprised when stuff like that happens. I mean, really, God IS a miracle-worker. God IS a supernatural being who isn&#39;t limited like we are in making things happen. And God DOES love us enough to want us to make the right choices. So why WOULDN&#39;T God drop us hints and clues and outright instructions?&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">What do we have to do? We just have to put it out there to God and then listen for answers. We just have to expect that we&#39;ll get them.

         "content": "<p>\nWe are a bit shaken up over the HPV Vaccination, sometimes called the HPV Jab.  It supposedly immunises young women against  sexually transmitted disease that can lead to genital warts and cervical cancer but is not yet proven. However, for a number of reasons, my wife and I \"opted out\" by checking the 'No' box on the consent form, and our 13 year old daughter also decided NOT to get the jab. We figured with both parents and daughter against the idea, the jabbing would pass us by. But then she went to school and some anonymous doctor jabbed her anyway.\n</p><p>\nWe have no overt moral or <a href=\"http://www.religioustolerance.org/ccvaccine2.htm\">spiritual issue</a> with the immunization itself and, <a href=\"http://www.frc.org/get.cfm?i=LH06B03\">along with the FRC</a>, we don't believe that the HPV immunisation necessarily leads to promiscuity. We do, however,  have a problem with mandatory or coerced vaccination against the will of the child or the parents. But we were told we could \"opt out\" so we didn't give it much thought.\n</p><p>\nOn the day, our 13 year old daughter, who by the way has Type-1 Diabetes, was taken aside from the other girls and told by the doctor that she was the only girl in her year who had handed in a consent form with a cross in the 'No' box. As they started to talk, and without being asked if she wanted it, the doctor jabbed her.\n</p><p>\n<img src=\"http://tallskinnykiwi.typepad.com/tallskinnykiwi/HPV.JPG\" height=\"260\" width=\"360\" border=\"0\" hspace=\"0\" vspace=\"0\" alt=\"Hpv\" />\n</p><p>\nWe have serious issues with this relatively untested and unproven drug Cervarix. Finding answers to basic questions like \"How will it affect our Type-1 diabetic pre-adolescent daughter?\" has proven impossible for us and I can only assume, unless the one of the <a href=\"http://www.gsk.com/media/pressreleases/2005/2005_12_19_GSK707.htm\">158 pre-adolescent [10-14 year] test candidates </a>had Type-1 diabetes, that our daughter is now the gullible guinea pig who will test this product for the much larger international market.\n</p><p>\nOn the internet we call that \"beta testing\", although we are talking about our daughter, not a new web application.\n</p><p>\n<span style=\"color:#999999;font-size:14pt;\">\"Coerced vaccination is not justified because there is no public health emergency. Similarly, forcing an intervention over an adolescent's objections is not justified because it fails to respect the adolescent as a maturing individual.\"</span><span style=\"color:#999999;\"> </span><a href=\"http://www.bmj.com/cgi/content/full/332/7550/1106\">BMJ (British Medical Journal)</a>\n</p><p>\nWe shared our story with a social worker and he suggested reporting it to the police as a case of abuse. We went over to our school today to discuss it with them. The head teacher was shocked and apologetic and offered to talk to the NHS. Obviously the school is not to blame and has been kept in the dark.\n</p><p>\nThe  <a href=\"http://www.bmj.com/cgi/content/full/332/7550/1106\">BMJ </a>suggested that <span style=\"color:#999999;\">\"the most controversial situation is when an adolescent seeks the vaccine without parental permission.\" </span>But even more controversial is what happened to our child in Scotland, when the <a href=\"http://www.nhsdirect.nhs.uk/articles/article.aspx?articleId=2336\">vaccination</a> was given AGAINST the written permission of both the parents AND against the will of the adolescent, or in this case, the pre-adolescent.\n</p><p>\n<strong>Opting Out</strong>\n<br />The Government says that the vaccine will be offered to all girls in the selected age range but that parents will be given the opportunity to <strong>\"opt out\"</strong> if they do not want their child to receive the jabs. \"It will be voluntary\" <a href=\"http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/1555087/QandampA-on-cervical-cancer-jabs-for-girls.html\">the Telegraph reports</a>, and yet the paragraph following states that \"non-compliance\" could undermine the project.\n</p><p>\n<img src=\"http://tallskinnykiwi.typepad.com/tallskinnykiwi/choice-hpv-immunization.jpg\" height=\"73\" width=\"73\" border=\"0\" align=\"left\" hspace=\"8\" vspace=\"0\" alt=\"Choice-Hpv-Immunization\" /><span style=\"font-size:14pt;\">I guess we were \"non-compliant\"\n<br />but I like to think of it as \"pro-choice\".</span>\n</p><p>\nI was thinking that maybe we could have prevented the abuse of our daughter by not sending in the consent form at all. But then we chatted with one of our kid's friends who also got jabbed, despite her not wanting it and despite her father refusing to sing the consent form. I guess we are not the only ones.\n</p><p>\n<strong>Can We Really Opt Out? </strong>The brochure given to the 12-13 year olds called \"Arm Against Cervical Cancer\" [<a href=\"http://www.immunisation.nhs.uk/publications/HPV_leaflet.pdf\">download as PDF</a>] promises that parents can \"opt out\". It reads:\n<br /><span style=\"color:#999999;\">\"You may be given a consent form that your parents should sign giving permission for you to have the vaccination. It’s important that you return the signed form before your vaccination is due. If your parents are not sure that you should have the vaccination you should still return the form and speak to your nurse, doctor or other healthcare professional. Having the vaccination now will help protect you against the most common causes of cervical cancer for many years.\"</span>\n</p><p>\nWhat does that mean, anyway? If your parents say 'No', then you should speak to the medical professionals to get a second opinion? Sounds like we were outranked by someone with a stethoscope around their neck!\n<br />But surely its illegal, even in this country, to ignore the parents consent when the 'young woman' involved has  only just turned 13 years old?\n</p><p>\nSo, from our experience with the first jab, this is how it looks to me:\n<br />- If your daughter refuses the vaccination, she is young and incapable of making the right decision so JAB HER ANYWAY. [So says Dr Frank on Yahoo Answers]\n<br />- If your parents refuse to permit the vaccination, they are old and too stupid to make the right decision so JAB HER ANYWAY.\n<br />- If both daughter and parents refuse the vaccination, JAB HER ANYWAY and hope that no one says anything.\n</p><p>\nAny way you look at it, our daughters are going to get jabbed unless they have the gumption to stand up for their right to choose for themselves. Or someone else stands up for them. Or we keep them out of school on the jabbing day.\n</p><p>\n<strong>Side Effects?\n<br /></strong>The brochure suggests the side effects are \"<span style=\"color:#999999;\"> quite mild – usually just stinging and soreness in the arm that soon wears off. Hundreds of thousands of young women in the USA and other countries have already had their vaccinations. Studies have shown that the vaccination is very safe.\"</span>  But what the brochure doesnt tell you about those young women in the USA is that over 20 died and thousands of others now have serious permanent injuries.\n</p><p>\nAfter the jab, our daughter and 2 friends had immediate side effects, including a hot and cold flashes and dizziness, but they was told it was in their minds. Headaches have continued almost daily since the jab and a few days ago she had a very serious seizure during the night. We were just glad she was sleeping in our bed. She slept in our bed last night also, just in case another seizure happened, and she will probably sleep in our bed again tonight. And we dont really know if the seizure or headaches are related to the jab or rather to her diabetes. But we are still worried and information is scarce.\n</p><p>\n<strong>My advice?</strong>\n<br />1. Do Your Own Research!\n<br />2. Find information websites that allow comments and stories of real people who are not paid to say only positive things about HPV vaccinations.\n<br />3. If you don't want your daughter jabbed, or if she doesnt want to get jabbed, don't send her to school on the day of jabbing because the permission form might not be worth the paper it is written on.\n<br />4. Make a copy of your consent form before your daughter hands it in and it disappears into space.\n<br />5. If your story is similar to ours, tell someone.\n</p><p>\nRead on to see some of the things I found about about this vaccination.\n</p>\n<!-- technorati tags start --><p style=\"text-align:right;font-size:10px;\">Technorati Tags: <a href=\"http://www.technorati.com/tag/cancer jab\" rel=\"tag\">cancer jab</a>, <a href=\"http://www.technorati.com/tag/cervarix\" rel=\"tag\">cervarix</a>, <a href=\"http://www.technorati.com/tag/cervical cancer\" rel=\"tag\">cervical cancer</a>, <a href=\"http://www.technorati.com/tag/family research council\" rel=\"tag\">family research council</a>, <a href=\"http://www.technorati.com/tag/genital warts\" rel=\"tag\">genital warts</a>, <a href=\"http://www.technorati.com/tag/hpv\" rel=\"tag\">hpv</a>, <a href=\"http://www.technorati.com/tag/human papillomavirus virus\" rel=\"tag\">human papillomavirus virus</a>, <a href=\"http://www.technorati.com/tag/immunisation\" rel=\"tag\">immunisation</a>, <a href=\"http://www.technorati.com/tag/immunization\" rel=\"tag\">immunization</a>, <a href=\"http://www.technorati.com/tag/jab\" rel=\"tag\">jab</a>, <a href=\"http://www.technorati.com/tag/nhs\" rel=\"tag\">nhs</a>, <a href=\"http://www.technorati.com/tag/std\" rel=\"tag\">std</a></p><!-- technorati tags end -->",

It&#39;s only one week until Easter and I already am feeling the spirit of the holy week. Easter is the most meaningful holiday of all and I&#39;m looking forward to church services and focused thought over the next several days.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\">I have a really cool project to share today. And, I have a lot to say about this project...&#0160;First of all, it&#39;s one of my favorite things I&#39;ve ever made! Second...it is&#0160;BY FAR&#0160;the hardest project I have ever tried to photograph! I took over 100 photos to try to show you how these Easter mason jars came out. The glare on the domes&#0160;made it&#0160;so hard to take pictures of! Oh well, I think I got enough photos so you can see the final results. And maybe I am a little OCD. Or a lot. Just sayin.</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\">I cleaned out part of my craft studio a week or so ago and I made a new space for all my Papertrey Ink supplies to be organized and easily accessible. You&#39;ll see lots of PTI projects for a while! I am crazy about their new line of dies and stamps called Petite Places - <a href=\"https://www.pinterest.com/stampcatwg/pti-petite-places-cards-and-projects/\" target=\"_blank\">I even have a Pinterest Board for them!</a> I went wild creating some Easter mason jars to give out as presents. Hope you like them - and hope you try this too.&#0160;It&#0160;is just so much fun and&#0160;you will have a blast! The domes are Christmas ornaments - the kind that separate in half! You can buy them on the PTI website or at your local craft store! So much fun to think of ideas and play with these. I already have some more themes in mind. Without further ado....</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\">I made five different mason jars. This first one was made with the Petite Places Church and the little trees that go with the scenes. OMG right???&#0160;&#0160;</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.ablogcalledwanda.com/.a/6a0120a7861a18970b01bb0810fa93970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"Petite Places from PTI.

It&#39;s only one week until Easter and I already am feeling the spirit of the holy week. Easter is the most meaningful holiday of all and I&#39;m looking forward to church services and focused thought over the next several days.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\">I have a really cool project to share today. And, I have a lot to say about this project...&#0160;First of all, it&#39;s one of my favorite things I&#39;ve ever made! Second...it is&#0160;BY FAR&#0160;the hardest project I have ever tried to photograph! I took over 100 photos to try to show you how these Easter mason jars came out. The glare on the domes&#0160;made it&#0160;so hard to take pictures of! Oh well, I think I got enough photos so you can see the final results. And maybe I am a little OCD. Or a lot. Just sayin.</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\">I cleaned out part of my craft studio a week or so ago and I made a new space for all my Papertrey Ink supplies to be organized and easily accessible. You&#39;ll see lots of PTI projects for a while! I am crazy about their new line of dies and stamps called Petite Places - <a href=\"https://www.pinterest.com/stampcatwg/pti-petite-places-cards-and-projects/\" target=\"_blank\">I even have a Pinterest Board for them!</a> I went wild creating some Easter mason jars to give out as presents. Hope you like them - and hope you try this too.&#0160;It&#0160;is just so much fun and&#0160;you will have a blast! The domes are Christmas ornaments - the kind that separate in half! You can buy them on the PTI website or at your local craft store! So much fun to think of ideas and play with these. I already have some more themes in mind. Without further ado....</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\">I made five different mason jars. This first one was made with the Petite Places Church and the little trees that go with the scenes. OMG right???&#0160;&#0160;</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.ablogcalledwanda.com/.a/6a0120a7861a18970b01bb0810fa93970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"Petite Places from PTI.

A holy tzaddik in Brooklyn, Grand Rabbi Rabbi Chaim Elazar Wassertheil - the Riminover Rebbe (<em>image, above</em>) -&#0160;is now calling for all of America&#39;s Jews to leave and go to Israel. He warns of<a href=\"http://jpupdates.com/2015/03/26/rabbi-warns-of-civil-war-in-the-u-s-urges-jews-to-move-to-israel/\" target=\"_blank\"> civil war in the USA</a>.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Pesach is coming, and it&#39;s time to leave Egypt.

Many of our brothers and sisters, especially in the USA, have been looking at us as if we&#39;re from another planet. Does this remind you of the attitude of European Jews before the Holocaust?</p>\r\n<p>We&#39;re no longer the lone voice. A holy tzaddik in Brooklyn, Grand Rabbi Rabbi Chaim Elazar Wassertheil - the Riminover Rebbe (<em>image, above</em>) -&#0160;is now calling for all of America&#39;s Jews to leave and go to Israel. He warns of<a href=\"http://jpupdates.com/2015/03/26/rabbi-warns-of-civil-war-in-the-u-s-urges-jews-to-move-to-israel/\" target=\"_blank\"> civil war in the USA</a>.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Pesach is coming, and it&#39;s time to leave Egypt.

         "content": "<p><strong>By Jean Headley Darmody, Special to Riptide</strong></p>\r\n<p>Anyone who has followed City Council elections in Pacifica knows that if you don&#39;t have a recognizable name, you have a slim chance of being elected to council. That John Keener (a virtual unknown before the November election) was elected to council, running mainly against Caltrans&#39; Highway 1 widening project, should be a clear indication to council how opposed so many Pacificans are to this project that would make that portion of Highway 1 wider than Interstate 280.</p>\r\n<p>To me, that is simply absurd! Council should realize that if it votes to go forward with the project, I truly believe there will be a recall petition circulating in no time at all, and I believe it would be successful. This is a much bigger issue than the Landscape &amp; Lighting Assessment issue that was the impetus for the last recall, for those of you who were here then and can remember how terribly it divided the community.<br /><br />To my knowledge, there has not been even one public meeting on this issue, and the Chamber of Commerce and Caltrans seem to be ramrodding this project down our throats, when it&#39;s NOT the best alternative, and without hearing citizens&#39; input. I&#39;m not an engineer and know nothing about highway widening, but it seems to me that there is plenty of room to put a frontage road on one side or the other of that stretch of Highway 1 to accommodate emergency vehicles during heavy traffic.<br /><br />So there, I brought up the &quot;R&quot; word. I think this issue is that important.&#0160; </p>",

That John Keener (a virtual unknown before the November election) was elected to council, running mainly against Caltrans&#39; Highway 1 widening project, should be a clear indication to council how opposed so many Pacificans are to this project that would make that portion of Highway 1 wider than Interstate 280.</p>\r\n<p>To me, that is simply absurd! Council should realize that if it votes to go forward with the project, I truly believe there will be a recall petition circulating in no time at all, and I believe it would be successful. This is a much bigger issue than the Landscape &amp; Lighting Assessment issue that was the impetus for the last recall, for those of you who were here then and can remember how terribly it divided the community.<br /><br />To my knowledge, there has not been even one public meeting on this issue, and the Chamber of Commerce and Caltrans seem to be ramrodding this project down our throats, when it&#39;s NOT the best alternative, and without hearing citizens&#39; input. I&#39;m not an engineer and know nothing about highway widening, but it seems to me that there is plenty of room to put a frontage road on one side or the other of that stretch of Highway 1 to accommodate emergency vehicles during heavy traffic.<br /><br />So there, I brought up the &quot;R&quot; word. I think this issue is that important.&#0160; </p>",

The photography and food styling is stunning, the book design features lots of hand-painted and just pretty touches, and it&#39;s a vegetarian cookbook. So basically my mom totally nailed it—I love everything about this book!</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">2. When I saw <a href=\"http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0812994094/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=0812994094&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=abeames04-20&amp;linkId=PHSKOJHBDG6CB7ZO\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Prune</span></a><img alt=\"\" border=\"0\" height=\"1\" src=\"http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=abeames04-20&amp;l=as2&amp;o=1&amp;a=0812994094\" style=\"border: none !important; margin: 0px !important;\" width=\"1\" /> on the shelf at Barnes &amp; Noble a couple weeks I go, I got so excited! I loved Gabrielle Hamilton&#39;s (sort of) biography, <em>Blood, Bones, and Butter</em>, and I&#39;ve wanted to check out her New York restaurant (Prune) ever since. I haven&#39;t been able to make it there yet, but at least I have the cookbook. And I must say, the dark pink cover and overall design and, frankly, heft of this book seems fitting for a chef who I think is probably equally intimidating and cool. Can you tell I&#39;m a big fan of Hamilton? I am SO excited to cook some of her recipes soon.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">3.

It&#39;s sort of a unique approach to writing a cookbook in that it is authored by four friends who teach how to start a successful soup club (raise your hand if you&#39;ll start a soup club with me?!?!), and it has over 150 recipes they&#39;ve created together from their soup club. Fun, right?</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">5. <a href=\"http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1607745313/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=1607745313&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=abeames04-20&amp;linkId=J44CZOF6BGXHT2DP\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Afro-Vegan</span></a><img alt=\"\" border=\"0\" height=\"1\" src=\"http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=abeames04-20&amp;l=as2&amp;o=1&amp;a=1607745313\" style=\"border: none !important; margin: 0px !important;\" width=\"1\" /> mixes African, Caribbean, and southern American flavors together to create some really unique (and vegan!) dishes. It&#39;s got a lot going on, so if you like truly unique recipes, you&#39;ll love this book.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">6. A good friend sent me a couple books last month.&#0160;<a href=\"http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1607744767/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=1607744767&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=abeames04-20&amp;linkId=ZJZWEXH2QIS77KIS\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Asian Pickles</span></a><img alt=\"\" border=\"0\" height=\"1\" src=\"http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=abeames04-20&amp;l=as2&amp;o=1&amp;a=1607744767\" style=\"border: none !important; margin: 0px !important;\" width=\"1\" /> is one of the books she sent me and I loved it immediately. It&#39;s a little bit quirky and filled with pretty photography and inventive flavors.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">7. Although this is not technically a cookbook, I guess I&#39;m still putting <a href=\"http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0062332554/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=0062332554&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=abeames04-20&amp;linkId=PMZ2XRLM4QURRSE3\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Skin Cleanse</span></a><img alt=\"\" border=\"0\" height=\"1\" src=\"http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=abeames04-20&amp;l=as2&amp;o=1&amp;a=0062332554\" style=\"border: none !important; margin: 0px !important;\" width=\"1\" /> on the list because it&#39;s a new book I recently picked up and have been enjoying so far. I would put my skin on the &quot;OK but probably could be healthier&quot; spectrum of things. I don&#39;t have plaguing problems outside of some dryness in the winter, but I think a reminder that what we put into our bodies manifests itself through out skin and health in general is a good thing. I mean, I can always use a friendly reminder to make healthy choices. But that&#39;s just me.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">If you have any cookbooks (or other books) you&#39;d like to recommend and share with us, please leave me a comment. And happy Saturday everyone! If you need me, I&#39;ll be in my kitchen trying to pretend I&#39;m&#0160;Gabrielle Hamilton. xo.

I love reading them. I love cooking from them. And I LOVE geeking out over the food photography. Just for fun I thought I&#39;d share a few new (or new to me) cookbooks I&#39;m into right now.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">1. <a href=\"http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1617690813/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=1617690813&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=abeames04-20&amp;linkId=CKHN2I6JGCYZGKVD\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">The Forest Feast</span></a><img alt=\"\" border=\"0\" height=\"1\" src=\"http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=abeames04-20&amp;l=as2&amp;o=1&amp;a=1617690813\" style=\"border: none !important; margin: 0px !important;\" width=\"1\" /> was a book that was gifted to me by my mother for my birthday a few months ago. The photography and food styling is stunning, the book design features lots of hand-painted and just pretty touches, and it&#39;s a vegetarian cookbook. So basically my mom totally nailed it—I love everything about this book!</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">2. When I saw <a href=\"http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0812994094/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=0812994094&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=abeames04-20&amp;linkId=PHSKOJHBDG6CB7ZO\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Prune</span></a><img alt=\"\" border=\"0\" height=\"1\" src=\"http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=abeames04-20&amp;l=as2&amp;o=1&amp;a=0812994094\" style=\"border: none !important; margin: 0px !important;\" width=\"1\" /> on the shelf at Barnes &amp; Noble a couple weeks I go, I got so excited! I loved Gabrielle Hamilton&#39;s (sort of) biography, <em>Blood, Bones, and Butter</em>, and I&#39;ve wanted to check out her New York restaurant (Prune) ever since. I haven&#39;t been able to make it there yet, but at least I have the cookbook. And I must say, the dark pink cover and overall design and, frankly, heft of this book seems fitting for a chef who I think is probably equally intimidating and cool. Can you tell I&#39;m a big fan of Hamilton? I am SO excited to cook some of her recipes soon.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">3.

A very useful resource for anyone looking to take their baked goods game to the next level.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><span style=\"display: inline; background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb080eeb3d970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Food photography\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201bb080eeb3d970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb080eeb3d970d-800wi\" title=\"Food photography\" /></a></span></span>4. I love the concept behind <a href=\"http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0770434622/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=0770434622&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=abeames04-20&amp;linkId=R7DEBNIJJ4JSUMYC\" target=\"_blank\">The Soup Club Cookbook</a><img alt=\"\" border=\"0\" height=\"1\" src=\"http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=abeames04-20&amp;l=as2&amp;o=1&amp;a=0770434622\" style=\"border: none !important; margin: 0px !important;\" width=\"1\" />. It&#39;s sort of a unique approach to writing a cookbook in that it is authored by four friends who teach how to start a successful soup club (raise your hand if you&#39;ll start a soup club with me?!?!), and it has over 150 recipes they&#39;ve created together from their soup club. Fun, right?</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">5. <a href=\"http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1607745313/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=1607745313&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=abeames04-20&amp;linkId=J44CZOF6BGXHT2DP\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Afro-Vegan</span></a><img alt=\"\" border=\"0\" height=\"1\" src=\"http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=abeames04-20&amp;l=as2&amp;o=1&amp;a=1607745313\" style=\"border: none !important; margin: 0px !important;\" width=\"1\" /> mixes African, Caribbean, and southern American flavors together to create some really unique (and vegan!) dishes. It&#39;s got a lot going on, so if you like truly unique recipes, you&#39;ll love this book.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">6. A good friend sent me a couple books last month.&#0160;<a href=\"http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1607744767/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=1607744767&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=abeames04-20&amp;linkId=ZJZWEXH2QIS77KIS\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Asian Pickles</span></a><img alt=\"\" border=\"0\" height=\"1\" src=\"http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=abeames04-20&amp;l=as2&amp;o=1&amp;a=1607744767\" style=\"border: none !important; margin: 0px !important;\" width=\"1\" /> is one of the books she sent me and I loved it immediately. It&#39;s a little bit quirky and filled with pretty photography and inventive flavors.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">7. Although this is not technically a cookbook, I guess I&#39;m still putting <a href=\"http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0062332554/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=0062332554&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=abeames04-20&amp;linkId=PMZ2XRLM4QURRSE3\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Skin Cleanse</span></a><img alt=\"\" border=\"0\" height=\"1\" src=\"http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=abeames04-20&amp;l=as2&amp;o=1&amp;a=0062332554\" style=\"border: none !important; margin: 0px !important;\" width=\"1\" /> on the list because it&#39;s a new book I recently picked up and have been enjoying so far. I would put my skin on the &quot;OK but probably could be healthier&quot; spectrum of things. I don&#39;t have plaguing problems outside of some dryness in the winter, but I think a reminder that what we put into our bodies manifests itself through out skin and health in general is a good thing. I mean, I can always use a friendly reminder to make healthy choices. But that&#39;s just me.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">If you have any cookbooks (or other books) you&#39;d like to recommend and share with us, please leave me a comment. And happy Saturday everyone! If you need me, I&#39;ll be in my kitchen trying to pretend I&#39;m&#0160;Gabrielle Hamilton. xo.

Why do you craft?&#0160;</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">&#0160;</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">I can&#39;t think of any time in my life that I wasn&#39;t doing some sort of creative endeavor. Over the years I have done pretty much every sort of craft or fine art out there. It is just a part of who I am at a basic level.</span></div>\r\n<div><br /><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">2. What do you feel is your crafting forté?</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">&#0160;</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">My&#0160;forte is 3D projects and mini albums. I love to find creative ways to hold interactive mini albums.</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">&#0160;</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">3. What inspires and motivates you to be creative?</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">&#0160;</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">I love what I do. Inspiration can come from a color, a sound, a scene. Pretty much anything can spark an idea or an image. Sometimes it is just a glimmer of an idea or concept. Sometimes I can see a project in full&#0160;detail in my mind. My head gets so full of ideas...time is the issue.</span></div>\r\n<div><br /><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">4. What do you do with your projects once they&#39;re complete?</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">&#0160;</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">These days most of what I design I also teach, so I end up making at lest 3 of each project, one as the prototype, one as the sample for the pattern, and one that I make during my live classes. Many are display in my home. Many are in various stages of completion in my studio. Some I give&#0160;away.</span></div>\r\n<div><br /><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">5. What is the funniest craft disaster you&#39;ve ever had?</span><br /><br /><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">At the time of this incident, it wasn&#39;t at all funny. In retrospect it just makes me shake my head. Several summers ago, I was teaching a class at CHA in Las Vegas for G45. We had a sold out&#0160;class of over 100 people. I was bringing all of the precut chipboard for the class in my carry on luggage. Both of my carry on&#0160;pieces were searched by two different TSA agents at airport security. One had my Wizard House and was fascinated and asking me questions. The other got the chipboard. In the distraction of answering questions, half of the chipboard did not make it back into my carry on. I realized it was missing the morning of the class. After allowing myself 10 minutes to be completely hysterical, I had to shake it off and come up with a solution. We had one cover and the spine for everyone in class and ended up using the 8 x 8 pad cover to make a 6&#39; x 9&quot; album cover....it was creative magic making 8&quot; become 9&quot;!! Turn a disaster into a creative opportunity!</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">&#0160;</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">We remember that genius moment!

What do you do with your projects once they&#39;re complete?</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">&#0160;</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">These days most of what I design I also teach, so I end up making at lest 3 of each project, one as the prototype, one as the sample for the pattern, and one that I make during my live classes. Many are display in my home. Many are in various stages of completion in my studio. Some I give&#0160;away.</span></div>\r\n<div><br /><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">5. What is the funniest craft disaster you&#39;ve ever had?</span><br /><br /><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">At the time of this incident, it wasn&#39;t at all funny. In retrospect it just makes me shake my head. Several summers ago, I was teaching a class at CHA in Las Vegas for G45. We had a sold out&#0160;class of over 100 people. I was bringing all of the precut chipboard for the class in my carry on luggage. Both of my carry on&#0160;pieces were searched by two different TSA agents at airport security. One had my Wizard House and was fascinated and asking me questions. The other got the chipboard. In the distraction of answering questions, half of the chipboard did not make it back into my carry on. I realized it was missing the morning of the class. After allowing myself 10 minutes to be completely hysterical, I had to shake it off and come up with a solution. We had one cover and the spine for everyone in class and ended up using the 8 x 8 pad cover to make a 6&#39; x 9&quot; album cover....it was creative magic making 8&quot; become 9&quot;!! Turn a disaster into a creative opportunity!</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">&#0160;</span></div>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">We remember that genius moment!

Why do you craft?</em> <br /><br />I just love the freedom and the whole creative process, I find it very relaxing. The idea of starting with no idea of the finished project, but with a wonderful collection of graphic 45 papers and embellishments in front of me, is my idea of the perfect setting to create my projects in.<br /><br /><em>2. What do you feel is your crafting forte?</em><br /><br />I just love everything, cards, books, off the page and layouts. I suppose books are my favourite but I really love layouts. It really depends on the collection I am working with as to what I end up making. <br /><br /><em>3. What inspires and motivates you to be creative?</em><br /><br />Graphic 45 papers are the perfect inspiration for me. I love laying the papers out in front of me. I always have two of each print so I can see both sides – then I just start cutting. My favourite way to use it, is to mix the collections around and use some of my old favourites along with my new favourites. <br /><br /><em>4. What do you do with your projects once they&#39;re complete?</em><br /><br />I have 7 Graphic 45 albums full of layouts and a bookcase full of my books and cards. Because I teach all over Australia I am always packing my books and layouts up to go to shows and things. So most of the time they are on display in my store or in boxes ready for the next display.<br /><br /><em>5. What is the funniest craft disaster you&#39;ve ever had?</em><br /><br />I don’t really have a funniest craft disaster. I find that most of my disasters end up becoming my favourite projects. As I tell everyone I teach, there are no mistakes in scrapbooking only more opportunities to create something better.</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\"><em>Wow, we would love to see your 7 Graphic 45 albums - awesome! Thanks for talking with us, Jane!</em> </span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">Now, Jane shares the most fabulous album using <a href=\"http://store.scrapbook.com/gf-4500756.html\" target=\"_blank\"><em>Mother Goose</em></a>! </span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">&quot;I really love this collection – all the images are perfect for cutting out. Once I saw the collection I knew I wanted to do a book. But I didn’t want to just do a book, I wanted to do a pop out or an interactive book. Each page has a pocket that contains a letter, postcard and little bits and pieces relating to each nursery rhyme in it.</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\"> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01b7c7674264970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"A Mother Goose album by the incredible Jane Tregenza #graphic45\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a011570479cdc970b01b7c7674264970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01b7c7674264970b-600wi\" style=\"width: 600px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"A Mother Goose album by the incredible Jane Tregenza #graphic45\" /></a><br /><br /><br />I always make my books from scratch. I use cardstock for the foundation of each page, then I add print paper to each black foundation page. I love using Graphic 45’s striped print papers for making frames around my pages. It’s such a lovely technique for any page; it also helps to hide my background print paper sometimes when it isn’t on straight. I use this technique for frames on layouts, books and cards. I have done a snapguide on making a frame if any of you want to have a go. At the end of the snapguide I have included some examples of frames on my work.<br /><br />Some of the interactive features in my book include a tab attached to Humpty Dumpty that makes him slide down the wall. The letter in the pocket on Humpty Dumpty’s Page is a letter from Nurse Rea Rhyme telling him how to treat his broken head. It includes an x-ray of his cracked egg. There is also a postcard telling him to get better from all the kings men. </span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\"><br /><br /> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01b7c7674271970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Humpty Dumpty pages of Jane&#39;s Mother Goose album #graphic45\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a011570479cdc970b01b7c7674271970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01b7c7674271970b-600wi\" style=\"width: 600px;\" title=\"Humpty Dumpty pages of Jane&#39;s Mother Goose album #graphic45\" /></a></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\"><br /> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01bb080b3a10970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Humpty Dumpty pages of Jane&#39;s Mother Goose album #graphic45\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a011570479cdc970b01bb080b3a10970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01bb080b3a10970d-600wi\" style=\"width: 600px;\" title=\"Humpty Dumpty pages of Jane&#39;s Mother Goose album #graphic45\" /></a></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\"><br /> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01bb080b3a1b970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Humpty Dumpty pages of Jane&#39;s Mother Goose album #graphic45\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a011570479cdc970b01bb080b3a1b970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01bb080b3a1b970d-600wi\" style=\"width: 600px;\" title=\"Humpty Dumpty pages of Jane&#39;s Mother Goose album #graphic45\" /></a></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\"><br /> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01b7c767428c970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Humpty Dumpty pages of Jane&#39;s Mother Goose album #graphic45\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a011570479cdc970b01b7c767428c970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01b7c767428c970b-600wi\" style=\"width: 600px;\" title=\"Humpty Dumpty pages of Jane&#39;s Mother Goose album #graphic45\" /></a></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\"><br /> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01bb080b3a36970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"The History of Humpty Dumpty created by Jane #graphic45\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a011570479cdc970b01bb080b3a36970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01bb080b3a36970d-600wi\" style=\"width: 600px;\" title=\"The History of Humpty Dumpty created by Jane #graphic45\" /></a></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\"><br />The Twinkle Twinkle Little Star page has a tab so the cow jumps over the moon.

Why do you craft?</em> <br /><br />I just love the freedom and the whole creative process, I find it very relaxing. The idea of starting with no idea of the finished project, but with a wonderful collection of graphic 45 papers and embellishments in front of me, is my idea of the perfect setting to create my projects in.<br /><br /><em>2. What do you feel is your crafting forte?</em><br /><br />I just love everything, cards, books, off the page and layouts. I suppose books are my favourite but I really love layouts. It really depends on the collection I am working with as to what I end up making. <br /><br /><em>3. What inspires and motivates you to be creative?</em><br /><br />Graphic 45 papers are the perfect inspiration for me. I love laying the papers out in front of me. I always have two of each print so I can see both sides – then I just start cutting. My favourite way to use it, is to mix the collections around and use some of my old favourites along with my new favourites. <br /><br /><em>4. What do you do with your projects once they&#39;re complete?</em><br /><br />I have 7 Graphic 45 albums full of layouts and a bookcase full of my books and cards. Because I teach all over Australia I am always packing my books and layouts up to go to shows and things. So most of the time they are on display in my store or in boxes ready for the next display.<br /><br /><em>5. What is the funniest craft disaster you&#39;ve ever had?</em><br /><br />I don’t really have a funniest craft disaster. I find that most of my disasters end up becoming my favourite projects. As I tell everyone I teach, there are no mistakes in scrapbooking only more opportunities to create something better.</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\"><em>Wow, we would love to see your 7 Graphic 45 albums - awesome! Thanks for talking with us, Jane!</em> </span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">Now, Jane shares the most fabulous album using <a href=\"http://store.scrapbook.com/gf-4500756.html\" target=\"_blank\"><em>Mother Goose</em></a>! </span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">&quot;I really love this collection – all the images are perfect for cutting out. Once I saw the collection I knew I wanted to do a book. But I didn’t want to just do a book, I wanted to do a pop out or an interactive book. Each page has a pocket that contains a letter, postcard and little bits and pieces relating to each nursery rhyme in it.</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\"> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01b7c7674264970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"A Mother Goose album by the incredible Jane Tregenza #graphic45\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a011570479cdc970b01b7c7674264970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01b7c7674264970b-600wi\" style=\"width: 600px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"A Mother Goose album by the incredible Jane Tregenza #graphic45\" /></a><br /><br /><br />I always make my books from scratch. I use cardstock for the foundation of each page, then I add print paper to each black foundation page. I love using Graphic 45’s striped print papers for making frames around my pages. It’s such a lovely technique for any page; it also helps to hide my background print paper sometimes when it isn’t on straight. I use this technique for frames on layouts, books and cards. I have done a snapguide on making a frame if any of you want to have a go. At the end of the snapguide I have included some examples of frames on my work.<br /><br />Some of the interactive features in my book include a tab attached to Humpty Dumpty that makes him slide down the wall. The letter in the pocket on Humpty Dumpty’s Page is a letter from Nurse Rea Rhyme telling him how to treat his broken head. It includes an x-ray of his cracked egg. There is also a postcard telling him to get better from all the kings men. </span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\"><br /><br /> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01b7c7674271970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Humpty Dumpty pages of Jane&#39;s Mother Goose album #graphic45\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a011570479cdc970b01b7c7674271970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01b7c7674271970b-600wi\" style=\"width: 600px;\" title=\"Humpty Dumpty pages of Jane&#39;s Mother Goose album #graphic45\" /></a></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\"><br /> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01bb080b3a10970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Humpty Dumpty pages of Jane&#39;s Mother Goose album #graphic45\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a011570479cdc970b01bb080b3a10970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01bb080b3a10970d-600wi\" style=\"width: 600px;\" title=\"Humpty Dumpty pages of Jane&#39;s Mother Goose album #graphic45\" /></a></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\"><br /> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01bb080b3a1b970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Humpty Dumpty pages of Jane&#39;s Mother Goose album #graphic45\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a011570479cdc970b01bb080b3a1b970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01bb080b3a1b970d-600wi\" style=\"width: 600px;\" title=\"Humpty Dumpty pages of Jane&#39;s Mother Goose album #graphic45\" /></a></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\"><br /> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01b7c767428c970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Humpty Dumpty pages of Jane&#39;s Mother Goose album #graphic45\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a011570479cdc970b01b7c767428c970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01b7c767428c970b-600wi\" style=\"width: 600px;\" title=\"Humpty Dumpty pages of Jane&#39;s Mother Goose album #graphic45\" /></a></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\"><br /> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01bb080b3a36970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"The History of Humpty Dumpty created by Jane #graphic45\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a011570479cdc970b01bb080b3a36970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01bb080b3a36970d-600wi\" style=\"width: 600px;\" title=\"The History of Humpty Dumpty created by Jane #graphic45\" /></a></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\"><br />The Twinkle Twinkle Little Star page has a tab so the cow jumps over the moon.

         "content": "<p>The CFL Combine is currently underway in Toronto – here&#39;s a full recap if you really need one – but the good stuff actually happens tomorrow when the on-field drills take place. The one-on-ones, the only actual football of the weekend, are always a highlight. And they can change a player&#39;s draft stock, as they did with Ticat defensive back Craig Butler back in 2011.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://ideas.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83451bb7469e201bb0811729c970d-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Craig Butler2821\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d83451bb7469e201bb0811729c970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://ideas.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83451bb7469e201bb0811729c970d-800wi\" title=\"Craig Butler2821\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>One drill at the CFL Combine changed the course of Craig&#0160;Butler&#39;s career and probably his life.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>He arrived at the annual showcase of draft-eligible Canadian talent in 2011 as an unranked prospect, not an unknown exactly - he&#39;d been a CIS All-Canadian at Western while playing four positions - but not necessarily among the elite.</p>\r\n<p>&quot;Even my agent was saying before the draft that he expected that I&#39;d be a third or fourth-round pick, &quot; the Hamilton Tiger-Cat defensive back recalled this week.</p>\r\n<p>Through much of the three days, he did little to change that perception. His physical testing numbers were middle of the pack among his position group - he ran a 4.85 in the 40-yard dash, third slowest among DBs - and his interviews with CFL teams were a mixed bag.</p>\r\n<p>&quot;One team asked me if I was a troublemaker, if I liked starting trouble. I didn&#39;t know if they meant on the field or off the field so I said ‘yes, &#39;&quot; chuckled the fully trouble-free&#0160;Butler. &quot;That interview ended quickly and I didn&#39;t get drafted by that team.&quot;</p>\r\n<p>But it was in those interviews that he fully realized the importance of the one-on-one sessions which were scheduled for the next day. Then B.C.

         "renderedContent": "<p>The CFL Combine is currently underway in Toronto – here&#39;s a full recap if you really need one – but the good stuff actually happens tomorrow when the on-field drills take place. The one-on-ones, the only actual football of the weekend, are always a highlight. And they can change a player&#39;s draft stock, as they did with Ticat defensive back Craig Butler back in 2011.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://ideas.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83451bb7469e201bb0811729c970d-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Craig Butler2821\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d83451bb7469e201bb0811729c970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://ideas.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83451bb7469e201bb0811729c970d-800wi\" title=\"Craig Butler2821\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>One drill at the CFL Combine changed the course of Craig&#0160;Butler&#39;s career and probably his life.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>He arrived at the annual showcase of draft-eligible Canadian talent in 2011 as an unranked prospect, not an unknown exactly - he&#39;d been a CIS All-Canadian at Western while playing four positions - but not necessarily among the elite.</p>\r\n<p>&quot;Even my agent was saying before the draft that he expected that I&#39;d be a third or fourth-round pick, &quot; the Hamilton Tiger-Cat defensive back recalled this week.</p>\r\n<p>Through much of the three days, he did little to change that perception. His physical testing numbers were middle of the pack among his position group - he ran a 4.85 in the 40-yard dash, third slowest among DBs - and his interviews with CFL teams were a mixed bag.</p>\r\n<p>&quot;One team asked me if I was a troublemaker, if I liked starting trouble. I didn&#39;t know if they meant on the field or off the field so I said ‘yes, &#39;&quot; chuckled the fully trouble-free&#0160;Butler. &quot;That interview ended quickly and I didn&#39;t get drafted by that team.&quot;</p>\r\n<p>But it was in those interviews that he fully realized the importance of the one-on-one sessions which were scheduled for the next day. Then B.C. Lions assistant coach Barron Miles did his best to get under the then 22-year-old&#39;s skin.</p>\r\n<p>&quot;He was saying that players had been talking trash, saying that&#0160;Butler&#0160;wasn&#39;t that good. I don&#39;t think they were saying anything, it was just him trying to get me going, &quot;&#0160;Butler&#0160;said.&#0160; &quot;He said ‘how do you feel about that?&#39; I said, ‘Well, we&#39;ll see on the field tomorrow.&#39;&quot;</p>\r\n<p>One of the unique elements of the CFL Combine, the 2015 edition of which is currently underway in Toronto, is that it features players competing against one another in football situations.
