Out With the Old, In With the New

Blogger has been giving me fits - seriously.  The Week #3 Winner post never went up, so I'll just combine it here with the LIST O'WINNERS. . . (chosen using
  • Week #3 Winner:  Jengd
  • Week #4 Winner:  Teddra
  • Christmas in July Giveaway Winner:  Patchi
  • Grand Prize Winner (chosen from anyone who entered during the Series):  Shelly V.
Little bits of info from the Series:  79 layouts were created, eight people shared their work (thanks to those who took the step and shared for the first time), I think the oldest kit I saw was four years old,  naked chipboard was used, there was a lot of old stash hauled out, great photos circa '80s were used, some even discovered it was time to let go of stash that no longer held the magic.  And finally, not only can I NOT count, I also can't proof - and nobody said anything about my titles being totally messed up around day 14!!

Thank You to all who participated, both those who shared and those who kept their work close to their hearts.  It was a great month. . .plans for the next monthly series are in the works.  I'm thinking September - these things take me a month to recover.

Prizes will be shipped out when I do kit shipping in another week or so.

Thanks so much for having these challenges, Lori! I looked forward to them each day and so thankful I used up a bunch of older stash. YAY!

Congrats to all the winners and thanks Lori for all the great challenges. It was a fun month. September is MotherLOAD for me so I may not be able to participate with you too ... we'll see how the new streamlined space is though. Who knows, maybe now that I've gotten rid of a lot of the excess baggage I'll be able get twice the number of layouts done!!
Here's hoping!!

I agree with was awesome to have these challenges to motivate me. Thank you for all your hard work, Lori! It worked so well for me to have some structure and deadlines, but still enough room to get creative! Maybe by September I can catch up the challenge days I wasn't able to get to!...and thanks for the prizes! I'm so excited! :)
