This is as hard to write as it is for you to read. Sadly, the is the end for Compuproscrapbooking.com.
We are sure that this is a shock to you, and we are sorry for the sudden change in plans. While it was in everyone’s heart that this site could continue “as is” – many different obstacles showed themselves and the decision has been made to close the site down.
Thank you to everyone who sent in the donations to help with the site. Amy will be contacting you individually to arrange to get your money back (and thanks Amy for taking on the collection role in the first place).
On behalf of the DT members past and present, we want to thank you, the members and core of this site, for all that you have done. The community that was created in the short life of this site is truly amazing. Coming together, supporting one another, the creative talent…..all amazing. Thank you Nicole for starting this venture for us, we are all better scrappers and better women from it.
So – what next?
We are not sure of an exact date to when the site will close. The blog will remain active at least till the end of January so that we can communicate to you. There are lots of other places to play on the world wide web, and we encourage you to share the sites that you visit so that we can all gather together somewhere else.
Feel free to continue with the challenges and chatter till the site reads no longer active (although LO tag has been cancelled). Share emails with one another and whatever information will be relevant to keep in touch.
Again, thank you all. It’s been an amazing journey, and while we are all sad to see this site close, it’s a new year and a new beginning.
All our best

Love those Cuttlebug embossing folders but don't have a Cuttlebug? You can still use them!!
This is all you need: the folder of your choice, your cardstock of your choice, a water misting bottle and a rolling pin.

Since we can't chat in the forum today (and I'm missing you all), I'm going to host a little game with a prize here on the blog.
I'm going to a holiday dinner party tonight and I'm taking a holiday dish. Post a comment with your guess of what dish I'm taking and tell me what you're up to today. I'll draw a winner on Sunday from everyone who guesses. And the first person to guess correctly automatically wins a prize!

Have no fear, Kflo's here!!!!
I've been a little MIA these days. Ha ha...get it? Ok, corny jokes.
Anyhoo. I figured what better time to post my December challenge than, NOW...that way, you get to keep scrappin and work on a challenge here and there until things are back to normal...
So here goes people:
Kflo's December Challenge - FAMILY
Christmas for me is all about FAMILY. It's so important for me to have everyone near. So I was thinking about that for a bit and realized that most of my layouts are about Mia these days, or maybe about DH, or the roast I made last week...but I don't often do a layout where the whole purpose is to chronicle a family member, or to honor my family. Whether it be immediate or extended...1 or 100 people. Do a layout where you dedicate the whole page to 'family'... That doesn't have to be the title, but make sure you do 'explain' your layout through your title and/or journaling.

Ahhh - the familiar joys of "transition"! If you're reading this blog, it probably means that you've checked the forum and discovered that the "Account has been suspended"...well...that would be the result of that "transition" thing we were talking about earlier.
As we speak, a gaggle of "compupro" people are scurrying around like elves in Santa's workshop, trying to get it all sorted out. Please be patient with us and we'll have everything back up and running in no time :)
In the mean time, I'm going to see if I can shake the DT Tree and see what we can post here for some fun challenges (and maybe even a prize or two) to keep us all on our scrappy toes?? Whadya think??
Stay tuned and I'll chatatcha later scrappy people :)

I will post over the next couple days all the WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL techniques shared on World Card Making Day.
Posted by NickyT at Sunday, October 05, 2008
WORLD CARD MAKING DAY is this Saturday!!!!!!!! And guess what??? We have something fun planned for you!!
Here at CompuPro Scrapbooking, on October 4th, 2008 you are invited to come together to celebrate this holiday with us for a 9 cards in 9 hours “Write to the Troops” crop!! Starting at 9am (Atlantic Standard Time) and continuing each hour there after until 5pm, our talented design team together with a few guests will be posting a unique card and the step by step instructions to go along with it so you can create the card yourself. A challenge or two may be thrown in there every now and then too!!
We chose a “Write to the Troops” theme for our World Card Making Day crop because there are many soldiers overseas serving our country at this very moment. Regardless of what we think about the conflicts going on around the world, we agree that our soldiers are brave, honorable, and deserve our support!!
So we would like you to share the joy of a creating some handmade cards with us on October 4th and pay it forward afterwards by writing a little message inside and sending them on to a soldier (or two or 3.) Just one or two cards is all it would take to make one day out of their deployment a little bit brighter and more meaningful. Please let them know you are thinking about them, supporting their strength and admiring their courage. If you have happen to complete ALL 9 cards and maybe even more, it would be a nice sentiment to send them along too. The soldiers can definitely use them to keep in touch with family and friends back home.
If you do not personally know of a troop serving overseas, here is a link for you to send mail to “Any Canadian Forces Member" For those of you local to the Oromocto area, the Military Family Resource Center accepts card donations and ensures thier delivery!
It's located at:A-45 St. Lawrence Ave.Oromocto, NBE2V 4J5phone: 506-422-2000 (ext.3352)On that same note, I am sure that any of you close to a military base would have a Resouce Center that will accept your card donations.
If you are in the US, here is a link for “Cards for Heroes” where you can donate your card (s)!
****Please post the links to your card (s) in this thread by Monday, October 20th to be eligible for a prize.
On Tuesday October, 21st we will draw 2 random names from all the participants and they will win a small RAK put together by Nicole and the DT.We hope to see you Saturday!!!!!!
