Blog Tips

I wanted to share some great inking tips for all of you Dango girls who love to stamp. Ally (thecircleguru) sent these in to share:

"To remove ink from your acrylic blocks, use a damp Mr. Clean "Magic Eraser" sponge. Works at removing any permanent ink like magic!! Store your ink pads upside down to ensure the top of your ink pads stay saturated and ready to use. Store your mini chalk ink and mini ink squares in a bead organizer box. You can stack 2 pads per divided section. Clean your stamps using baby wipes. I cut mine up in small squares and stick them in a snack size Ziploc bag for easy storage at your desk."

Thanks Ally for sending these tips to me. You have recieved a ballot for the draw!

If you have any tips you would like to share you will recieve a ballot for this months Blog Prize Draw that is held ont he 15th of every month. You can email them to me at .

Challenge #12

Time for a challenge girls!! This time around it is a photo challenge!

I was chatting with a friend today about pictures we have of ourselves. She was looking for a recent photo of herself for a DT bio page and realized that she didn't really have one. I got to thinking..... my recent avatar photo was the last one taken of me and that was taken last fall by my 8 year old daugher, Emmy!!!

If you are anything like me then you are always behind the camera, rarely infront of it!!

Can you guess where I am going with this challenge yet??

Yep.... grab your camera, slap on some lipstick and get your photo taken, It can be a self portrait, taken by your BFF, your children or your hubby. It must be taken between now and the 15th of June. Let's see you have some fun in front of the camera!!

Once you have your pic, load it as your new avatar, load it in the gallery or link it here, for one ballot for the blog draw. Use it in a layout and recieve 2 bonus ballots!!

I will be enlisting the help of my girls this week in getting a new pic of me too.
