INK-a-palooza High FIVE all around!:196:
Thanks to the many wonderful shackies...who made INK-a-palooza a stamping blast! Thanks for participating in the challenges, leaving kind words on the gallery challenge posts and the challenge threads. Thanks for playing at Ink-a-palooza!!!

The large quantity of challenges and their wide variety made Ink-a-palooza so much fun! That would not have been possible without the many shackies who stepped up to host/sponsor a challenge. Here’s a special round of applause to all our challenge hosts who made Ink-a-palooza possible!! They will be selecting the winners posting some time Monday and I fill in the following master list after work.

There are 70 photos already submitted to the Ink-a-palooza challenges. What an amazing effort after just 2 days.

04-26-2009, 09:06 AM
Wow , 70!!! I was only thinking and wondering this morning how many creations had been made.

04-27-2009, 10:01 PM
This is so cool!!! Thanks Jan for organizing this, I can't wait to play. I just love challenges and have really missed them on the board. I just printed them all off to take with me this week as I am leaving for work tomorrow, this should keep me pretty busy on my hotel time.

04-29-2009, 12:41 AM
I didn't think I could do 10 enteries so I didn't sign on here before, but I am sure I can complete 2 more, so I will sign on for 10 cards 10 days.

I just checked the closing time for Ink-a-palooza entries. It says Sunday May 3- Midnight PST...What does PST mean please?

PST is Pacific Standard Time...as in the west coast of the US. Can you find conversion table to determine what time that is for you Sarah?

05-02-2009, 01:19 PM
What a WONDERFUL challenge week this has been...THANKS Jan, for pulling all this together for us, and thanks loads to the challenge hosts! The gallery's been ROCKIN'! I've saved so MANY cardsfor inspiration! :cute:

I think I managed to do fourteen challenges, so please enter me...AND I have a "Post-Palooza" challenge to post..wtih prizes!!

05-03-2009, 10:23 AM
Thanks Jan. It looks like PST is 19 hours behind Sydney, which means 17 hours behind me.

05-03-2009, 11:08 AM
I don't know if I signed in right here or not.
I entered every challenge, so I'd like to be eligible for the door prize drawing.

Well I am not a night owl, so I will draw for my prizes first thing in the morning.
This has been lots of fun. It really turned out to be quite an event.
Thank you to Jan for organizing everything.
Thanks to all the other hostesses who posted their challenges and provided prizes.
And thank you to everyone who entered my challenge.

05-03-2009, 07:41 PM
Well, with the time difference, that midnight deadline is 4 am for me, so I will draw in the morning as well. If I am running late for work, you may not see the winner until I get home, sorry! Monday is my duty day and I can't be late!!!

Thanks, everyone!! This was so much fun!

05-04-2009, 02:16 AM
Thank you again, Jan, for putting this all together! I only managed to get to two of the challenges (well, get them completed and posted), but I have partial cards waiting in the wings from other challenges and look forward to working on them some more this week. I really enjoyed seeing where these challenges took everybody. And hats off to you ladies that completed All of them!! Yay You! :>

This was a fantastic week. Thank you for putting it together Jan. I finally was able to play over the weekend and kept wanting more time to do more challenges. Even if I didn't do a challenge, it was really fun to see what everyone else did. I'm still working my way through the gallery looking at everyone's cards! That'll take a week!! lol

05-04-2009, 12:15 PM
Thank you again ladies who hosted and supplied prizes for this FUN week, and THANK YOU again Jan for your superior organizing skills.
