Don't see a linky frog

The inlinkz button is there and the linky tool is working, @Rebecca. Seems inlinkz has been having issues lately. Also saw that problem with other challenge blogs. Hugs, Claudia DT xxx

I entered a third time, but my link does not show after several days, so I am adding my link here I noticed all my other link ups did not link properly after attempting to link to this site. Just thought you might want to know.

Entered my mini binder! I know it does not stand up to the other entries but you will never succeed if you do not try! I had fun making it and am going to love using it daily! Thanks for the chance to win an amazing prize package!!!

Hi Sara. I think linky has been playing up a little this month. Have heard and seen several problems with it. Hopefully it's working now x


October 28, 2015

Wow - such wonderful entries to a wonderful challenge. Andy Skinner will have a tough job - for sure!! I added my link for my project - but it is not showing. I went back to inlinkz to try again - thinking it didn't load but they tell me that it did. HOPE SO but it is definitely not showing. Thanks bunches for the opportunity to play with my wonderful DecoArt products!


October 28, 2015

Mine isn't showing either...but it did say that it needs to be approved, so fingers crossed it's 'in the system' :) x

That's really shwdre! Good to see the logic set out so well.

THANKS BUNCHES & BUNCHES DecoArt & Andy. Sounds silly but this is one of the biggest honors of my life. HAPPY TEARS. DecoArt products-WOW-I will use every drop. Oh my -never in a million years did I think I would win. A long time ago, I stopped "dreaming". Watching folks CREATE like Tracy, Andy, Candy & others have inspired me to allow a bit of dreaming! Oh...thank you sooooo much. I can't describe my joy. If I was there, I would give you ALL a huge HUG. j.
