I have been trying to find two more digi scrappers for my personal CT. Well....I visit a whoooollleee lot of scrapbooking sites on a pretty much daily basis. There are some sites that I may visit one time a month or even less frequently than that. I know that is not a good site member....but I do have a life outside this computer.
Now....a couple days ago, I was on one of the sites that I frequent very infrequently....sometimes when I drop in, I don't even post....I just look around and leave. Well...I dropped in and there was a poll posted about digi scrapping. Now I've been a member of this site almost since it began....so I know the majority of these ladies aren't really in digi scrapping. So, I look at the poll and there are like 8 who said they prefer traditional scrapping. Counting me on the poll there were 3 ladies that said they like digi scrapping.
So, after checking out the gallery and their creations, I pm these 2 ladies, introduce myself and ask if they would like to try out one of my kits. I told them to email me if they were interested. Both of them did email me.....after some discussion as to what I would want in a CT member...they both agreed to become part of my CT.....until today that is.
This afternoon, I checked my email and I had and email from each of these two ladies stating things had either changed for them or that they didn't want to endanger friendships they had built on the other site by being on my CT. I also had an email from the site owner blessing me out for recruiting her members away from her site.
First of all, I never ever asked these two ladies to leave the site in question. I did ask that they post layouts done with my kits at three different scrap sites...I listed two sites and the third was their choice. This is just routine CT requirements. I know this because I've been on a few CT's myself and still am.
One of the ladies even asked about posting the layouts on the site in question and I told her that was up to her, that I didn't mind at all. The only reason I didn't post layouts in the gallery is that I do mainly digi layouts myself and I know from being on the board as long as it has been in business that the ladies there don't really care for digi.
Anyway.....I emailed the site owner back and explained that I never tried to steal her members that I was looking for personal CT members for my designs only and not DT for another site. Well, needless to say.....she believes what she believes and that is all that can be said on that matter....because I would never repeat the response that I received back from her. I asked her to delete my account and was told that it had already been done. So, I am done with her and her site.
So, Now I ask you my readers....did I do anything wrong? I really didn't feel like I did...but I would like to know what you think.
OK....One of my CT members Angie...made this lovely QP for you using my Pink Passions kit that was inspired by the color choices from Sweet daughter in law that lives in Germany - Taun. I hope you enjoy this little FREEBIE!!
