Monday, Monday!

Once again, there is so very much going on at SCRaPDANGo! We're nearing the end of the month, so that means time is running out on a few challenges for March! Make sure you've had a chance to try for fabulous Dango goodies with the 2 Blog challenges as well as the Design Team Challenges! You've got just a few days to go...

With April on the way, we also have a little sneak peak for the upcoming Sugar and Spice kits! Boy, are you gonna love these!

April Sugar

April Spice

Aren't those just yummy! Be sure to head to the SCRaPDANGo Store to order yours now! For a limited time you get one FREE bottle of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist for signing up for a new or renewing a 6 or 12 month membership. If you sign up for a combo membership, you get TWO FREE bottles. Available colors will be posted in the store soon. Email Heather if you have any questions.

We also have another amazing member to highlight today! This week's member was caught joining us for the monthly Design Team Challenges for week 4-- For your challenge this week, I want you to do something a little different with your pictures. My example for you is using the same photo, but one is the original color, and one is in sepia. You can choose to do this or even use a certain Photoshop technique you've been wanting to try (maybe colorizing like Heather taught us a couple of weeks ago.) Just do something a little bit different with the pictures!

Congrats to karennie34 (Kim)!

What an awesome job with the challenge! Love those pictures! Be sure to check out the journaling as well- we're tired just thinking about it! :)

Hope to see you back soon! May your day be scrappy!

Another Talented Member!

Happy Monday to you all! It's a beautiful day in Dango-land! Well, isn't it always? I mean, with all the amazing talent running around here, it's bound to be beautiful!

This week's member was playing along with us for design team challenge 1 for the month of March! What stood out was  the colors with the water photos. Also, the enlargement with the text on it is a great technique! Congrats to this week's member...


Thanks so much for joining us in the DT challenges, Celeste! Hope to see the rest of you over at SCRaPDANGo so you can play along too!
Thanks for stopping by!

Member Monday Here Again!

Happy Monday all! Hope your spring (for you in the Northern half of the globe) is shaping up well! Many of us just did a little springing forward this past weekend... Not sure if it's really ok to just snatch away an hour like that, but the extra daylight in the evening yesterday was wonderful to have!

Our member this week has been having some fun creating with the February Sugar kit! Such a great use of all the gorgeous paper in this kit! We also loved how she stuck the tulle behind some of her elements! Just beautiful work! Of course, that would make this week's member Sue! (#3sagirl). Congrats Sue!

In other Dango news, make sure to head back to the forum for this week's piece of A Week in the Life album project! We've started the technique tutorials and can't wait to see what you have been doing with your pics from last week! Next week you'll be able to put together your albums! Check here for more details!

Have an awesome day!

Double Dose for the Day!!

Wowzers!! The week crept up on us and just flew right on by!! Sorry for the delay in getting the Member to you!! This week we share a member who is ultra talented and uber-busy!! She hangs out with us at SCRaPDANGo when she's not busy running her OWN forum and creating gorgeous sketches!! This week's member is Lucy!! I just LOVE that Lucy melted the acrylic for that wavy look on her fab altered item for the CROWNED entry. The ribbon and pearls are such a great touch and I just love the paint behind the pic. Awesome altered item!! How cute is that??

Now, we also need to get you this month's Use Your Stash blog challenge! Kerryn's up this month, and she's got a great one!

Hi Girls! This month I would like you to dig deep into your stash and create a layout or 2 using the following supplies:

Felt, metal and some bling.

That's it, pretty simple!
You will have until the last day of the month to link us to your layout, you just need to 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.

This Week's Member!!

A new week is upon us and the CROWNED competition is closing down! We just have to make the final tallies for the overall CROWNED winner! The work and talent coming in has been absolutely and completely fabulous, to say the very least. Each and every entry has shown amazing skill from all the entrants. The entire design team agrees that judging was a near impossible task to take on! Thanks so much to everyone who participated! Be sure to head over to SCRaPDANGo into each of the competition threads to see all the amazing work! We'll be trying to post some of it over here as well over the next week or so.

With all of the gorgeous work continuing to flood the gallery, we were able to find yet another stunning piece of work for this week's member spotlight! This week we check out the work of Sillyscraps! Here is her beautiful page for week 4...
In this LO, Leanne used loads of glimmermisting with masks! Also, check out all that fussy cutting! Just gorgeous!

We'll see you soon for more exciting updates from SCRaPDANGo!
