Terrific Tuesday

Well it's another week here at Scrapdango. The "New Beginnings" crop officially ended on Sunday, and there were so many fabulous cards and layouts completed by all the Dangos. We thank you all for hanging with us for the crop. We are hard at work now getting ready for our National Scrapbook Day "Be Inspired" crop. Can you believe that is coming up this weekend?!? Gotta love a holiday just for all of us scrapbookers. :)

We should've posted the Member Monday post yesterday, but instead we'll do a Terrific Tuesday today to highlight one of our Dangos. There were so many great layouts and cards from the crop, that it was hard to choose just one, but I loved this layout by KellyG. The photo is adorable, and I love the simplicity of the layout.

And also a HUGE congrats to our winner of the "New Beginnings" crop, LisaM. Lisa got so much done during the crop and rocked all the challenges. Lisa will receive one of the awesome past Scrapdango kits for free. If you want a chance to win one of Scrapdango's packed kits, as well as other prizes, be sure and join us this weekend for NSD and "Be Inspired."

April UYS Blog Challenge!

Hello all! Always glad you stopped by! We have another Use Your Stash challenge lined up for you! It's Carly here, and I'm up for this month. This time around, I need you to go dusting off the old stuff in your scrap stash. You know, the stuff you've completely forgotten you even have. Go and find some of the oldest stuff you've got, then make something great with them! You can make anything crafty you'd like, just as long as you're using up your stash. Let one item be something you think is one of the oldest items you've got, and make another one at LEAST one year old. (If you're a new scrapper, then both items should be the oldest!)

Here's a little book I created with some REALLY old My Mind's Eye papers and some flowers and ribbon that I'd completely forgotten I had.

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. (International winners will be given a $6 shipping credit and will be responsible for the balance.)

Remember, the more stash you use, the more shopping you can do! Good luck and have fun!

Time for Another Member!

Happy April to you all! Hope your Easter was fabulous and blessed!

Over at SCRaPDANGo we just wrapped up our A Week in the Life Album Contest. During our first round of the month, we focused on new photo techniques. Each DT member gave a tutorial on various ways for you to enhance your photos. If you missed it, check here to get caught up! The awesome Dangos have been uploading all those great pics into the gallery and have really wowed us! In looking through these, we decided to go with one of these fab photos to use for our member spotlight this week! Here she is!

Congrats to AudreyKit! Who could even resist that adorable pic of her precious little girl?? This particular challenge was from Lynn- get a different angle on your subject. Seriously though, you'll really have to go check out the gallery! What the ladies are putting in there is just awesome! It was really hard to choose just one!

Make sure to head over to the forum as we get ready to start the New Beginnings Crop in just a few days! If you've never done a SCRaPDANGo crop, you'll need to get over there! It's never been so easy to scrap, chat, and win prizes!

Thanks for stopping by!

First of all, happy April to all of our wonderful Dangos out there! Hope you are enjoying all that the season is bringing you! Since we've entered a new month, it's time to announce the March Blog Contest Winner! Congratulations to LisaM! Remember to check back here later in the month for your chances to win the delicious SCRaPDANGo goodies by simply taking a couple of challenges! The first will be the Use Your Stash challenge on the 10th!

Also, in SCRaPDANGo happenings, we're going to be having a spectacular celebration...
Here's some more information from Heather you'll want to check out!

We are going to be having a crop to celebrate my new ownership and Spring called the New Beginnings Crop from April 12th - April 18th. One thing I want to do with this crop is really try to spread the word about Scrapdango. In addition to the regular crop kit prize (and maybe some extra prizes ), I will be offering another prize for my Get the Word Out Contest. This will be your choice of a past available kit. All you have to do is tell all your friends (online and otherwise) about Scrapdango to earn draws.

Here is exactly how you can earn draws:

1 Draw - Post the New Beginnings crop poster on your blog and/or Facebook (2 draws if you do both).

1 Draw - Become a fan of Scrapdango on Facebook (or if you already are) http://www.facebook.com/pages/Scrapd...4061719?v=wall

1 Draw - Become a follower of Scrapdango's Blog (or if you already are) http://www.scrapdango.blogspot.com/

1 Draw for every 5 Facebook friends that you suggest become fans of Scrapdango on Facebook.

1 Draw for every 5 people you recommend to become a follower of the Scrapdango blog. If they leave a comment on the blog saying you sent them, you will get 1 extra draw.

1 Draw for every person that you invite to the Scrapdango forums and that posts saying you sent them. You will get an extra draw if they participate in the New Beginnings Crop

5 Draws for any new customer you refer to the store that places an order and lets me know you referred them either through email or letting me know on the forums.

10 Draws for any new customer you refer that signs up for a new 6 or 12 month subscription and lets me know you referred them either through email or letting me know on the forums.

Post in this forum if you are participating in this and keep track of your draws in the post. I will be drawing the winner at the end of the crop. Now get out there and spread the word to all your friends and let's grow this great site even more. International participants are eligible for this and will get a $6.00 shipping credit and be responsible for paying any remaining shipping on the prize.

Hope you'll join us! It's going to be fabulous!
