Specialized Hosting Sites
A lot of crafters use specialized hosting sites that not all of us have access to. We just wanted to let you know that if we don't comment, it's because we don't have access - but we see your work here at LM and appreciate your taking the time to link up and show off your style!!

Hi all! We had friends come and ended up spending the night, so wasn't online .. I've added Inlinkz, so can't wait to see who inspires you most!! Check out our CURRENT challenge and come on out and join us!
Good morning friends! Can you believe we are at the end of August already? This week, we would love to know who or what has inspired you in your life. Maybe your mom, dad, aunt, sibling .. maybe even a best friend, a co-worker. Could even be a beloved pet, a certain quote, book or even a celebrity. Show us who or what inspires you in your life and we would love for you to leave us a comment and tell us why they've inspired you. We look forward to seeing your creations. Feel free to use this sketch to get you started. Don't forget, you can find all the sketches we've used throughout our challenges in the sidebar under "Labels"
I feel SO bad, but I have really fallen behind here! We had PC probs and we seem to be back in business, so now trying to catch up on my commenting. I have looked at all your LO's, but I wasn't able to comment on them all. Kept getting error msgs and I think it's was IE8 (or 9) on daughter's laptop. It was on here too, till 10 min's ago, and I was having the same trouble. I've since DL'd Firefox and now we're good to go. So, pls bare with me as I try and catch up, but WOW!! You guys are really going to make this DT call hard on me aren't you?? I feel truly blessed to have so many entries and so many of you that want to be on my DT along with all of you who just want to come out and play every week!! You guys amaze me and inspire me. THANK YOU so much!!!
Bet that got your attention!! This weeks challenge is all about "Secret" ideas!! Do you hide your journaling, maybe hide one photo under another or sneak a little journal tag under that fold? We can't wait to see what little "secrets" you have on your layouts!!!

Good morning and Happy Sunday!!! I have been checking everyone's entries, but when I try to post, I get this msg: "Your current account (email@example.com) does not have access to view this page" So, I can't comment!! I've been using our little "ThinkPad" because we've lost our main desktop PC, (it's in being fixed, they think it's the motherboard and it's BRAND new!) so I haven't been able to do any blogging and will have to add my entry later this week .. good thing I have such an amazing DT!!
