October Challenges

I found this really fun typing skills site today. It is called Type Racer. If your typing is anything like mine you will love this site to help bring up your typing speed. I won't tell you how slow I type but it is slow. So check out Type Racer and see what you think of it.


While we are on the subject of checking out things why not check out all the new challenges that are in the Digi by Design Forum. New ones have been posted. Marcee has a great gift posted on her Elements Challenge. So hop on over to the Digi by Design Forum and find a challenge to do.

Psssssssssssst: Don't tell anyone but I hear that starting today there is going to be a posting challenge in the gallery too. For the month of October the person who post the most layouts will win a prize. So use those challenges to add to your gallery postings towards the prize.
