Yikes! January Blog Challenges Winner!

With so much going on at SCRaPDANGo, we've forgotten to tell you who the Blog Challenges winner was for January! Congrats to KCFlorida! Way to go Kelly!

Remember, there are different ways to enter to win a yummy SCRaPDANGo prize here on the Dango blog! Make sure to check the post below for the UYS blog challenge, and then again on the 20th for the sketch challenge!

February Use Your Stash Blog Contest!

Hey there! Glad you've joined us! It's time for this month's UYS challenge...

Here's the low-down on the challenge this month. You need to use a transparency (I know you all have some especially if you got the Jan Spice kit) AND use at LEAST 4 pieces of chipboard. If you use chipboard letters for your title you can count that as 1 so then you would still need 3 more pieces of chipboard. So let's go ladies- let's see whatcha got! You will have until the last day of the month to link us to your layout...just leave a comment with your link in it! You may enter up to 3 times each month. All entries from this and the sketch challenge (find it here on the Dango blog on the 20th of each month) will be entered into a drawing for a special "blog" prize pack-unique to the Dango Blog challenges. (International winners will be given a $6 shipping credit and will be responsible for the balance.)

Remember, using up your stash is the best excuse to get more scrap goodies!

That Was a Fast Week!

They say time flies when you're having fun... Wow! We have got to be having a blast around here!

It is Member Monday, so let's get to looking at what our amazing Dango members are creating!
This layout by Kim is our pick this week! The bright paper strips on the white background combined with the bold black frame really caught our eye! Don't you love how the picture is offset from the frame too?! It is hard to scrap about ourselves and even harder to post them. Kudos to Kim for doing both!

Be sure to head back later this week to take a peek at the Use Your Stash Challenge. Also, make sure you stop by and check out the latest standings in the CROWNED contest! The talent you all have is amazing! I think the DT just may very well resign before making a tough decision like that! WOW-wee-wow-wow!

Hope your day is Dango-licious!

First February Member Monday!

Welcome back! It's Monday! Once again, we have some absolutely gorgeous work in the SCRaPDaNGo Gallery. It's both a blessing and a curse, because thought it's so exciting to have such amazing inspiration, it becomes that much more difficult to choose just one! So, without further ado...

This week's layout was created by our talented Kelly (kcflorida). I love the scallop border on the side and the punched page border on the bottom of the pictures. The title work is perfect and the My Mind's Eye journal cards are great choices for journaling. I also love that she kept the embellishments simple by only adding three buttons. This kept the focus on the pictures and story behind them. Congrats Kelly!!!!

Don't forget to check the post below for all the details that you need for SCRaPDaNGo's amazing CROWNED pageant! Remember, besides goodies and bragging rights, you also have the chance to win an amazing guest DT spot! Hope to see you over at the forum!

Hope your day is happy and scrappy!
