I'm Back. . .

Not that I really went anywhere, but since I haven't posted in over a week, it feels like a vacation. Though, I assure you, I have had anything but down-time. So, are you in withdrawal after the long month of cropping? Have your hands and fingers recovered? Luckily, if you need a fix, Bessie posted a great challenge on Monday to feed your need. I managed the other night, after a horrific day - seriously, it was the kind of day where I knew if the day didn't end when I expected it to that I was going to loose it, Big Time! -- to get a page completed. I know! What's up with that, that's almost two weeks in a row that I've scrapbooked. I still need to put a number "5" on it somewhere, and it qualifies for Bessie's sticker challenge, but I did this over the weekend before she posted. It also uses the Limited Edition Birthday kit :) Or some of it anyway. I have plenty of birthday layouts to use the rest of it on.

Ya'll have waited so patiently for winner announcements, so here they are. Starting with the final week of challenges, #16 through #20:

  • The "completed them all" winner is Deanna - you'll be getting the Bella Blvd Plastino Kit!
  • Random winner from the week is -- Rebecca. You'll get something with your next kit shipment.

Of all of those who played along, eight of you completed all 20 challenges! That is fantastic and I give you a huge round of applause! The sheer volume of stuff you accomplished is amazing - that's 160 layouts! From just you eight; Deanna, Rebecca, Maggie, Linda R., Natalie, Kristen and Julie. There are others who may not have gotten to all 20, but did their fair share of layouts as well and my hat is off to you, too! On to the big winner:

  • Winner of the Big Bash, Don't Stash It Challenge is. . . .MAGGIE!!
  • And because so many of you worked so hard, I drew a name from all those who completed any layout this month and that winner is: Jennifer (justjennifer). I'd be happy to meet you, at say, Archiver's to deliver your goodie in person ;)

Thanks to all of you who made February's challenges and birthday celebration so much fun. There's more fun coming in April - so, rest up and be ready to "Hop To It."

Enjoy your Wednesday.
