It was awesome! 
I'm SO glad I participated! Got so so so much more done than I had in the last six years or so....I was kinda just burnt out after all the scrapping I did back then, and then my kids got older and much more involved in school, and so was I. 

Bless your hearts for doing this...I feel like a scrapper again! 

aka 2Marbles

p.s. Today I am going through all my unpacked albums and putting them in chronological order, because I had just stuck them anywhere. I do have a "my favorite photos" album that I love to leaf through more often than the yearlies. THANK YOU!

Yes. Thankyou to the hosts. Great job all the participants!

I woke up this morning and realized I had been dreaming about scrapbooking. Guess the effects of Calvinball are still lingering!

Let me add my thank-yous! After doing Calvinball for the first time last year, I really looked forward to doing it again - put it on my calendar and everything! It's very motivating - although I never think of myself as a competitive person, I sure look forward to seeing how high up I am on the leaderboard! And it's just plain fun being part of such an awesome group of scrappers, if only for a month. Here's to next year!

Ditto to everything above!  I had a great time, and got tons done - especially a bunch of PL that I had been putting off!  


I really appreciate those who hosted and put in the extra time to make this happen!

I was super glad this was in March. It kept me freaking out over the eye surgery I had last weekend, even though I already had it done on the other eye last year.

Agreed. Thank you SO VERY MUCH Celeste for making this happen and Devra and Amy for also putting in so many hours to make it all run and to rev up the competitive and scrappy mood.

Yes, thanks so much! I didn't actually get anything done, but it is so fun to see so much chatter and to be inspired by all the design suggestions!
