Blog Hop Winners . . .

Before I announce the winners for the "For Those Left Behind" blog hop, I want to say "Thank You" to those who put together challenges for everyone to take part in . . . even though it was short notice, each and every one of you stepped up and knocked it out of the ballpark.  Each challenge was so creative and inspiring . . . which is why I feel the blog hop was a GREAT success.  Also, I want to say "Thank You" to all those who participated in the blog hop by either posting comments, submitting projects.  Every one of you is so talented and, again, I was so inspired by everything I saw . . . GREAT job!!!

Here's a few fun facts I wanted to share about the blog hop:
200+ pictures were taken
170+ projects were submitted
30+  people left comments on various blogs (pretty impressive
 considering how many went to "Spring Fling"
23 people submitted projects
11 participants did ALL 12 challenges

Okay, on with drawing the winners for the main blog hop prizes.   For the main blog hop prizes . . . .
Drum roll, please . . .

Mommyx2 - "Blue Jean" paper potpourri by Doodlebug 
Laura Ann Cox - Distress Inks 

If you will PM m on CC or email  me @ with your real name and address, these will be put in the mail to you.  As for the CropCredit, Lucy please send me your email address so the $10 CropCredit can be issued to you.

Now for the blog candy I was giving away . . . originally, I was only going to give away one (1) this time . . . but due to the overwhelming participation and because my # of followers increased from 47 to 53.  So I will be giving away 2 additional things of blog candy (one because it hit another increment of 5 and I'm now over 50 followers. (But, Sorry, the extra two will not be more Summer Edition Distress Inks.)

Karen N. - You are the winner for the set of Summer Edition distress inks
LinEmer - You are the winner of the 1st extra blog candy
wmitchell - You are the winner of the 2nd extra blog candy

One more thing, as I was going thru my comments and the projects submitted, I saw that we had a young lady joining us for the blog hop.  So I decided to send her some of her own blog candy . . .

Emma McAdams . . . she's Christina's daughter who wanted to play along 
. . . and she did a GREAT job!!!

Please either PM me on CropChocolate or email at with your real name and mailing address.  Once I get everyone's addresses, I will get these out in the mail to you.

Once again, I want to thank everyone for the participation . . . whether it was hosting a challenge, submitting a project, or just leaving a comment . . . without all of you, this hop would not have been a success.

Till the next time I'm Up in the Night.  Kathy
