TIP OF THE DAY
In the Scrap Girls Boutique, you may use two gift certificates or coupons at the same time. Just remember to put them in the Coupon Code box at the same time with a comma between them.
If I Pound on the Door, Will You Open It?
Some people bravely march through the door.
Some people refuse to approach the door.
Some people knock on the closed door and run away when it begins to open.
Some people open the door, peer outside, and decide whether or not they will walk through it based on what they see on the doorstep.
Some people act like the door doesn't exist.
Some people are tossed through the door because they have outstayed their welcome.
Some people are too tired and discouraged to look at the door.
Some people so exaggerate how hard the door is to open that they never even touch the doorknob.
Some people wish that other people would quit talking about the door.
Some people forget that they walked through a door to get where they currently are.
Some people pound on the door and wait for somebody else to open it.
Some people open the door, take a deep breath, and walk through it with faith that all will be well.
After a nine-month absence from posting in my personal blog (http://ropaxman.com), I've started posting out there again. I'd like to invite you to swing by and say, “Howdy!” Look forward to talking to you. :)

Just send in your BINGO card at any time during the month, and you'll be eligible to begin playing when the next new round starts.
Each day, a member of the Welcoming Committee will call five random words from the BINGO list. Match just 15 of those words to win a BINGO. You must be first to call "BINGO!" in the game thread to win that round. After a winner is called, the boards will be cleared and a new round will begin the following day.
Each winner will receive a $5 Gift Certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique! We like to see lots of winners, so please remember that each person can only win one round during the month. Have fun!
