Stepping down end of June

Hi, Marlene. I emailed you a couple of times, but haven't heard back, so thought I'd post here instead hoping you'll see this.  I will be stepping down from the team after the June 26 Challenge #32. I have all of my projects completed through then.  Our family is moving from Alaska back home to South Carolina in July. I think this will be a good time to step away since it will take us a week to drive there, and who knows how long to get unpacked and settled again. Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your team since it started. I have enjoyed my time here. Please have someone choose the top picks for me for Ch#32 to be posted in July with the next challenge. I just imagine I'll be losing my wits that close to our moving date. Again, thank you so much for everything. Hugs!

Happy New Year and an Apology

Hi there,

First of all I'd like to wish you all a Happy New Year and secondly I want to apologise to Marlene and everyone else for missing the last challenge. 

I recently changed jobs at the end of September and I'm still finding my feet, learning new things has really zapped my energy.  In the run up to Christmas with all the extra work it involves I was under ever more pressure to get everything done then I had car problems that added at least an hour a day on to my commute to work.  I finished work the Friday before Christmas and got my car back that day too and just as things were starting to improve I started feeling ill and came down with a bad cold.  At least with being ill I had a chance to really relax and not be dashing about everywhere as usual!

Anyway, enough of my problems I just wanted to explain why I haven't been around much recently and fingers crossed I'm back on track and can keep up with our challenges from now on.

Wishing you all the best for 2018.

Shona xx

I will be a bit late posting my card.  It's been a difficult few days and I haven't managed to get any crafting time recently.   I'll put my card on the live post myself if need be.   Thanks, Shona xx

Following discussions with Marlene, from TODAY we will no longer add our photos here in the posts, this will purely be for discussions, giving winners, messages etc, any text wise.
I have added in the right side column a list of up-coming challenges, these are where you will store your photos. This will make life so much easier not only for Marlene but also for the Design Team.

 I have added pages #19 - #24 Marlene can change and add new pages as we progress.
You just click on the one you want, find your name, add your photo below, 
you MUST then click on Up-Date, Job done.

Only add the pic for that week/month's challenge.
I have transferred all the pics from the normal postings to the appropriate pages. 
The DT can immediately start adding their pics to the numbered pages in the side coloumn.
When completed, to return to the Admin page, click on Home, a new addition, or if finished you can close the blog. 

Many thanks for your understanding, I will be happy to answer any problems, answer any questions or explanations. Caz
