Happy Tuesday!

So, I'm trying to get into blogging more than once a month. I figure it's a great way to vent my frustrations about everyday things and to show off layouts and projects I create. This is my latest scrapbook layout. Photo was taken at Disney in February. The look on my oldest's face is almost scary!!!

So, I'm trying to get some challenges done at the Sweet Shoppe to earn a % off a future purchase, however, now the points to earn 40% off a purchase has gone up drastically. Now for those on multiple SSD CTs (and there are people who rack up 25+ points monthly because of this), this won't make a difference to them as they get double points each week for completing a challenge with a new release. For us regular members, this is going to be quite a challenge. Not sure if it's worth it esp. if the challenges don't interest me, but we'll see. There are some that really make you go "Hmmmm..."

Ok, I'm off - time to eat supper. Have a good one and stay dry as it's raining here in Pennsylvania.

It's not raining in my part of PA, so you can keep it LOL.

That doesn't hardly seem fair about the CTs at SSD being able to easily get the points needed for discounts. Seems they should have a system for the average scrapper. Maybe that's why I'm not on their site a whole lot.

Love your layout! What a fun picture! I used to regularly participate in the SSD challenges when I first got into digi, but now I find I just don't want to commit the time to doing so many challenges. :)

Great layout! The inked edge overlay by Nancie is one of my favorites - I use it all the time!

NO rain here! Almost 100 deg! LOL! Points are supposed to be incentive. That's a shame!

Amanda said...

terrific layout! I am all about instant gratification--I'd rather get a mini kit for posting a challenge layout than having to build up points to get a % off. Call me spoiled!
