Good Morning one and all! I can't believe it but the time has come to wrap-up our
Just a short month or so ago...myself and my 5 blogger friends decided to do a little project and to all of our surprises it took off and soared! We have met such amazing people...made new friendships...and it is an experience that we all treasure.
Well we threw a party and guess what...you came to it!!! When I clicked the send button to open the Linky party on my blog I held my breath and said...PLEASE let someone come...I was secretly wishing for 50 but 361 came to the celebration (NEVER in my wildest dreams did I ponder that number) and next time we promise to serve cappuccino's and biscotti! All of us were so thrilled at your response and we all thank each and everyone of you!
Now the time has come to wrap-up our challenge with a little over-view...Each one of us are spotlighting a few challenges...this is where my biggest challenge lies. I truly can not pick...I can't even watch Top Chef (Dessert Edition) because I don't like to see anyone go home...competition is not my thing...except when it comes to sports! (Go GIANTS...bring on the YANKEES). So I am randomly picking some challenges here...but from the bottom of my heart I loved them all and this was not about competition...it was about a personal challenge and you all NAILED IT!!!!!
Such amazing things happen in small packages...you will see what I mean when you take a peek at
The Quiet Book...created by Sarah from

I have just woken up at the crack of dawn to start preparing for my long journey to school. It is raining and miserable outside and I have to be honest there are a swarm of butterflies in my tummy ! I can't believe how nervous I am ! Sitting here with my cup of tea I switch on the computer and find this wonderful wrap up story on your 'Impossibility Challenge', low and behold I scroll down and there I am ! Wow that is so beautiful.......thankyou so much. At the same moment a little door to my tummy opened and at least half of the butterflies flew away ! I am touched. Thankyou for the challenge, it pushed me into a new career and away from my comfortable nest but I am sooo excited ! So thanks to all of you girls who made it happen xxxxx on Impossibilities Challenge Wrap-Up
