Coming home means lots of things to share that have been piling up.

Layout A Day with Lain Ehmann | I recently had a great phone conversation/interview with Lain Ehmann for her October Layout A Day series. Here's what Lain has to say about this 31-day challenge: "Layout A Day (LOAD) is a month-long scrapbooking challenge that will give you new inspiration, daily challenges, whiter teeth, and minty-fresh breath! October's theme is "Story," and we'll be exploring how to incorporate our personal stories into our scrapbook pages (no, it's not all about journaling!). Participants will be treated to a daily inspiration e-mail, audio interviews with fantastic storytellers like Ali Edwards, Celeste Smith, Noell Hyman, and Katrina Kennedy, an online gallery and message board, and a chance to win fabuloust prizes." Sign up and more info here.

The Daily Digi | The Daily Digi has a brand new subscription service called The Digi Game available for their monthly collaboration kits (The Digi Files) and Playbooks. Check out all the details and options on this new service here.

While I was having a sort out of some of my house the other week I found and old album that I have decide to give it new life and use it for my Daily December this year.

    You're up to some really cool things! I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one with a messy room, although mine tends to be that way constantly... Thanks for sharing!

    I have been thinking about my December Daily. Gathering a few items and waiting to see what you have in store. I did it last year for the first time and can't wait to do it again this year. Last year I didn't get my foundation done ahead of time and it stressed me. This year I am going to be up on my game!!

    So glad your back. Looking forward to starting my December Daily this year. I watched all last year as you put yours together and this year I'm going to do. It's my mission right along with making gifts for everyone. Can't wait! Let's just hope I can keep my momentum.

    Ali, Can you share with us if you still use your HP Photosmart D7360 Printer to print your photos at home? If not and you have purchased a new printer, can you share which one it is? I'm still having a really hard time believing that ANY home printer will be as good as traditional developing (snapfish, Ritz, etc.). But I would love for you to convince me otherwise! Thanks a million!

    Hi Ali, I am so excited about December Daily this year. My friends don't really follow any blogs or such so I am their conduit to you - after seeing my Dec Daily from last year they want me to help them in the process of getting theirs ready for this year and helping to keep them inspired through December to keep it going. I'm looking forward to this new little adventure. Thanks for starting it off!

    Started my DD also. This year (my 3rd for DD) I chose the House of 3 Portfolio Album. I'm planing on a screen printed image for the cover. Can't wait to see what you cook up! So grateful you brought this project to the masses. :)

    Hi Ali, glad you had a great trip, would love to go next year, will have to see if it's doable... looking forward to this year's December daily, last year was my first attempt and it didn't quite get finished so this year I'm hoping to get on board early and have a final finished project! Thanks for the inspiration as always!

    Can't wait for your December Daily post! I've been holding off heading to the stores for my big December scrapping shop. It's really the only one I allow myself each year. I've been honing my skills and am ready to get it done this year.
