  1. Ooh nice challenges. Unfortunately last week I was just super busy, all of a sudden, I thought I was going to have to drop out at first. Hopefully this week I won’t be as busy, tho we’re having company over at the end of the week. We shall see sigh

  2. Looks like so much fun! It turns out I’m much busier than I thought I would be this July, but it’s still fun looking at all the new challenges! Maybe I’ll do a few of them sometime. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Hi there!
    I am flabbergasted (a word, right :D) at myself. I forgot to log my points on K.A’s blog! Can I still log them, or do I just drop them, or do I add them to this log? I’m sorry! I will work hard this time grins

    1. Hi, Audrey! Oh no, that’s unfortunate. :[] You can still get half points for the challenges you completed last week if you submit them now – just go back to the week 1 form on K.A.’s blog and we’ll add your points. ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you have a super fun week!

  4. This is so much fun!!
    I was super excited to see my name on the list but I must not have submitted my points correctly or something… I counted them up and only got 85. I very well might’ve made a mistake because it was crazy late last night and I was half asleep when I submitted my points. I want to make sure the right people are in the right place up there so could someone double check to see if that number is correct? I counted from the checklist and got 85. I had several pictures but didn’t get a chance to send them in.

    1. Hi, Julia! Thank you so much for noticing that and pointing it out – we made a mistake while counting up points, whoops. ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ve fixed it in the post, you’re still in the top ten! I hope you have an awesome week! โค

  5. Hey………I was just reading the rules and it says that you can only submit 5 photos……..Laura, Jewel, and Sarah all submitted WAY more then five. Why was that allowed?
    I was so HAPPY to see I placed second! I would have tied with Laura, but picture points boosted her ahead………
    You may need to correct that. Is it only 5 photos or not?!

    1. Hi, Averey! Thanks for your question! ๐Ÿ™‚ Participants are allowed to submit as many photos as they would like, but they can only get points for five photos (3 points per photo, a maximum of 15 points per participant.) I hope that answered your question!
