    Oh I’m so glad you’ve posted all the links in one place! I’m just finishing off and then have to start uploading everything and the thought of having to trawl through looking for all the individual posts was getting bit scary!
    Thanks for an inspiring weekend.

  2. LisaZ Says:

    I agree with Carolyn. Thanks for putting everything in one place. I need to catch up. Thanks for a wonderful weekend!

  3. Smeepee Says:

    Thank you Shimelle for such wonderful inspiration. Don’t have time to do anymore for the prizes, but will keep coming back for inspiration!

  4. Lynetta Says:

    Hi Shimelle. I have tried to upload a few more projects but they are not appearing in the comments? Do I give it another go or are they waiting for approval. Just wanted to add that you have given me the urge, inspiration and mojo to get my ablum started for Document 2010 and for that I want to send a BIG thank you to you.
    Lynetta xXx

    Hei Shimelle! Thanks for this inspirational weekend. I made my first tags yesterday, and I love it! Tusen Takk!

  6. Natalie Says:

    Just wanted to say thank you for such a stimulating set of challenges. I can hardly concentrate on one for thinking of another. Too bad I can’t stretch the weekend to fit all the challenges, but this list will keep inspring me even after the deadline passes. So, thank you. :)

    Thanks again

    Hi Shimelle, just wanted to say again thanks so much for such a fun weekend. Didn’t manage to get all the challenges done, but what I did do I really enjoyed and I have enjoyed seeing what others have done too. Thanks also for this post with all the challenges in one place! I will be coming back to this post over the next few months to complete the challenges. xx

    Just wanted to say thank you for such a fab weekend of fun. I didn’t get to do much this time but thoroughly enjoyed what I did do.
    Thank you so much x

  11. Hazel Says:

    Thanks – it was great fun :-)

  12. Jenny Pitcairn Says:

    Thanks so much for a great weekend! I managed to spend about 3 hours each on Saturday & Sunday, and thoroughly enjoyed these challenges. I scrapped more than I have done in months – it really got me out of a funk.

  13. Lisa-Jane Johnson Says:

    Wow! Great inspiration as always Shimelle. I think I did 14 challenges plus a comment. I actually found ribbon offcuts in my bed this morning! xx

  14. Sinead Says:

    Thanks again Shimelle, really enjoyed what I got to participate in! Really appreciate all the time and effort you put into all the challenges. Thanks again xx

  15. Barbara Says:

    Thanks for the weekend Shimelle, I really enjoyed taking part with what I could. You have worked so hard, thanks again for all the inspiration.

  16. Jennifer Says:

    Yep, I’m gonna add to the thanks, it was a great weekend! I was really pleased you included photo challenges too, as my ‘to scrap’ pile was getting lower, and now I can replenish it. I think I’ve entered about 18 challenges, plus the comments, and I’ve enjoyed them all. Looking forward to seeing the details for the next class! xx

  17. Manda Says:

    I’ve never done anything like this before – thanks for the opportunity and the challenges! I’ve never made so many cards as I have in the last few days, and maybe next time I’ll be able to grab enough time to try a scrapbook page too.

  18. Peggy Says:

    Good grief! I missed the whole thing and it looks like it was a really great weekend of scrapping & photography. Phooey! Oh well, I promise that I won’t forget to “tune in tomorrow” for info. about the class.

  19. tape Says:

    My PC threw one of it’s wobblers this morning when I was getting my final posts in, so this thanks is now a tad late.
