Default Thank you!!

Hey ladies!

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for spending our 18th birthday with us! It has been such a pleasure having you here, and I have loved looking through all of the incredible layouts you created this month... you really shined on the black & white and photo-strip storytelling challenges... wow!

Not only did we see scrappers come out of lurkdom to join us, I recognized a lot of familiar faces that were back to jump into the fun too! It was awesome seeing ALL of you (including our amazing forum regulars), and I hope you'll stick around and join in our monthly Choose Your Own Adventure challenges or start up some conversation on anything and everything. Like always, our team is as committed as ever to bring you the best digital scrapbooking products on the planet along with a welcoming place to share your love of our hobby too! We know we can't do what we love without all of you supporting us, so seriously... thank you!

Before I wrap this up, I wanted to remind you that you have until March 3rd at 11:59pm ET to participate in all 29 challenges we've posted this month and update your post in my February 1st thread to enter to win your wishlist!

I'll also be posting our Day One answers and picking those winners after our final deadline too. I'm sure you're dying to know the answers... I will tell you, we have a 3 way tie for the top spot which is absolutely awesome!

Ok... that's enough from me!

We love you!!

R

Thanks for the fun, Robin, and a huge thank you to all the designers and hostesses. I didn't thank each one personally in the PMs for the links because I didn't want their inbox to be cluttered, so I'm doing it here. All your hard work was appreciated!

I really enjoyed the balance between scrapping challenges, getting to know people challenges and the more typical games this year! Well done to all you ladies that hosted and especially to you, Robin, for your hard work behind the scenes!

If I get even one of those Day One designer matches right, I'll be surprised. That was really hard.

This was such a good thing for me. I'm just one of those people who needs a challenge to get scrapping. The draw was that amazing "A Hole Year Older" kit. I did every challenge. I'm so proud of me. I was wondering if the kit will be available for purchase later? Just curious.

I've also had fun lurking on everyone's wishlist. Lots of good stuff in the store; I've added lots of things to my wishlist.

Many thanks to Robin and all the Babes who did all the hard work in making this happen.

Sounds like good excuse to get a new Mac. Of course, it would help if they didn't a cost an arm & a leg.

Thank you Robin for a wonderful 18th birthday celebration and also a big thank you to all the team for their challenges and designs.

It's been a great challenge for me to take part in - the first time I think that I have managed to do every day. Especially good for this year as well as my birthday is Feb 29th so its felt like a month of fun leading up to my leap year birthday as well x

Thank you to all the team for making your birthday always such a great and fun event!
I agree with all the ladies, it was great to have a challenge each day and February went very fast even if it was a leap year.
I already told you Robin but Sweet Shoppe is my happy place on the web and I'm so grateful to have this true hobby and meeting wonderful people who share the same love for scrapbooking and preserving memories!
Wish you there's lot of another birthday parties here's!

Thank you Robin and all of the designers and Babes. I only pop into the forum on occasion now, but I look forward to this event every year! I especially enjoy the balance of games/questions/scrapping challenges you do as I find daily scrapping for an extended period of time very hard to manage. SSD is definitely the sweetest place on the web <3

Thank you Robin and the whole team for an amazing Birthday month, full of challenges, games and lots of scrapping. It was an amazing sweet spot to hang around all month. I'm guilty, I was just a Passionate Digi Shopper all these years. This month I dived in deep and started scrapping. I'll try my best to continue. I added many, many goodies to my huge wish lists but I also bought lots of goodies, filled up my computer once again. Aaaa the joys of the Digi Life!!

I have already ordered a new iMac 😜. I have been operating off my phone, iPad and my Dell laptop. I miss my iMac!! It takes double the time to get my work done and I tried to work photoshop on my laptop but it is super slow and frustrating so I gave up.
At this point I just hope I can get all my files.

Thank you to you, Robin, and all the designers & babes who make the SS such an amazing community. I had quite a stressful month with a health scare & some family drama and I am so very glad that I could find a distraction from all of that working on the PGAD & CYOA challenges and admiring the wonderful pages of this community. Cheers to 18 more years!

Thank you so much to everyone who put this whole event together! I really enjoyed pushing myself on new techniques and scrapping in ways I don't usually. It was tough to keep up, but I also was very happy to turn things in (can we tell I was nerd in school hahah). I am already considering if I can manage to fit in the monthly challenges into my schedule and for sure the next event here! Thanks again and the collab is so lovely!

THANK YOU FOR THE FUN FREEBIES too.

HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

Thank you to everyone, for fun challenges and an awesome new kit.

I was wondering if you have ever shown what the first kits looked like 18 years ago. I have been digitally scrapping since 2012 and they changed quite a bit.

Thank you to you and the entire team for such a wonderful event!! I had so much fun this month and was able to get some fabulous pages created because of your prompts!

One question... if we missed a day or two (I missed 2 deadlines for the entire month), is there a way for us to purchase the mini-kits from the day(s) missed? Just curious.
