Default Chat Thread: Week 2

I hope I am allowed to open another chat thread here while we wait for judgement?
I'm nervous *lol* There are just awesome kits in this week's gallery. Good luck to all!

And I wonder... didn't 28 pass on to round 2? I saw we have only 25 previews in the gallery, didn't these 3 make it to the dealine or just didn't want to go on?
How many will make it to next round?
Questions over questions *rofl*

I think I have to join the Conversation Starter Challenge while I wait, otherwise you'll have to beat me with something till I shut up

Oh, crap. I accidentally hit the back button on my mouse and now I lost all that I had said. :*( Oh, well.

I was just saying I was glad that you had started this thread. I thought about it last night while I was so keyed up about the contest that I couldn't sleep LOL

I feel like I really didn't do my best on this kit. I ended up just sort of hurrying at the end so I could get the preview done and have plenty of time to keep looking at it. Oh, well. I'm still honored and excited to have gotten this far.

But I still keep wondering, "Now that this challenge is finished, what do I do to fill all of that creative time and use up all that creative energy that is still rumbling around in my head."

Maybe I'll have to hop over and do the color challenge.

Good luck, all you amazingly talented people.

I'm going to get my stick, Manu!

If I read it correctly about 1/2 move on and yes I did see that not everyone that made it to round to had a kit in the gallery.

Fortunately I have a list a mile long of stuff to do! 3 blog trains coming up (or maybe it's 2)...who knows how many kits to work on....definitely have to learn some more choreography for my Zumba classes.....oh.....can't forget vegetation time where I play my silly mindless Facebook games and re-pin all those funny cards on Pinterest to my boards....and then nap. Pretty much fills my day up! (and today was a non-Zumba teaching day!)

Let's see... I have no blog trains to do, don't teach Zumba (would look really stupid if I'd even try to *rofl*), I don't play Facebook games...and nap, what is that? *lol* I should get back to my both collab kits then...
Hope you only have a small stick!

Hi, itīs nice to find this thread here. :-)
I also would like to know how many of us will get to the next round? 14? or 12 and a half...?? *he he*

It was a lot of work to do in a short time and I feared I never would be ready in time.
Hope we donīt have to do 20 papers and 48 elements in the round 3... :-))

LOL!!! The dreaded back button ... sometimes it works (as in when you don't want it to) and sometimes it doesn't (as in when you DO want it to). I would be MORE than happy to join the club!!!

From the Piggy Re: Chat Thread: Week 2

Hello! Thought I'd pop in and say that there will still be 14 (50% of 28 moving on to the next round. It is easier for me than taking 50% of 25

Besides, I'm having a hard time just narrowing it down to 24

And... I'm forgetting why I came to post here!! LOL!

I know some of you were interested in the download link to my play along kit this week and I just wanted to let you know that it's updated with the link now! So sorry about that, my brain is seriously protesting all that it has to remember this month!

Thank you!

Now if only I could get the links to cooperate and stop being a big pain in the you-know-what, that would be great!

Jill, where are all of your bribes this round?? I could really go for some peanut butter cups!!
