Good deal Gina LOL---seems when I added the winners the Link System disappeared, ack!  I will go re-add it right now---thanks for letting me know (as for #34 well that was just my typing goof)!

Comment by Gina Marie on January 8, 2012 at 4:44pm

Sorry guys.. I'm a little confused... I see challenge #34 is the retro pink and black, but there is no link system and toward the bottom, right below "winners winners.." it says #34 now closed... ?? What am I missing here..?

Comment by Hazel Parr on January 8, 2012 at 4:37pm

What a wonderful amount raised.  Well done Suzanne on running this past challenge, sorting out amazing prizes and for topping up the donation.  You need to go and polish your halo hun.

So girls whose up for the new challenge.  I struggled a bit as I don't have alot of pink copics as pink is not my colour.  Hoping to add to my pens for my birthday thou, just need to work out whats ones I need the most!?!?!?!
