New Bloggy and Scrappy things a-goin on

Did you notice my new banner on my blog? Nothing fancy, but at least I have one now. And I have a pic in my avatar! pretty neat huh? oh and I updated my friends' blog list - or rather, created one. Let me know if you don't like your name being there and I will gladly remove it for you.

Oh and I am going to have to update my favorite places list and add a new blinkie because I have a new favorite place - Serendipity Scrapbooks. Seriously loving this place. It seems like the right place for me with so many nice, challenge oriented people. Yes, you probably already know this but I am addicted to challenges and they have some amazing ones there. I entered the monthly team points challenge and my teammate is my new friend and fellow Tres Chic Girl, Shannon. And I have over 1000 pts already! The point system is kind of complicated, and it was a getting kind of annoying when I had like 10 pages to post, but it is so fun! It is like an added benefit to making a page - counting up the points! Except it is bumming me out even more that I have to hold some back for this hall of fame contest. Which, by the way, I think I am not going to enter after all. It just isnt in line with my goals for this year. I really want to have fun scrapping and have fun with my online pals. Design teams are cool because I get to meet people on the forums. And I would like to be published, but I just dont think that I would even really want to win HOF. I guess I was going to enter just to see if I could. But now I am thinking that I am going to change that idea into submitting one page a month for publication. so that means that I already have my page done that I want to submit, but I will have to wait a couple months until the Christmas calls come out because it is a holiday oriented page. But oh well. Anyway, that clears that up. And I am going to stick with this Deck of Me challenge, but the 365 photo challenge just isnt working for me. I am going to edit that one too - to be a weekly photo of me. That is so much more do-able for me. And so, without further ado, here is my first deck of me card:

and this is a page that I made for the scraplift challenge #2 over at Scrapperie and the year in review challenge at A Peek Into Yesterday
