Apologies it's taken so so long to post who the winners of the last team challenge were - things have been crazy around here for a while now and when I say "here" I mean in the homes of all Scrapwhisperers! LOL
So firstly - the winners were..........
Stephanie chose the winning team and this is what she said:
"This is a tough one! But after looking at the layouts from all three teams I think my choice would be team number two! I really liked all the layouts and was really impressed with all the progressions from layout to layout. Each layout has their own version of the background from my original layout and they each compliment their pages. It's pretty neat to me how it went from person to person with each of them leaving their own mark on how it was translated. Great job to all the ladies! I also really like how the last layout was so much "calmer" than my layout, it really opened my eyes up to always considering that sometimes less really is more.That's a pretty neat challenge site"
So congratulations to team Rosey! Sadly there are no prizes on offer anymore but we hope you had fun playing the game.
Now onto the announcement.
We've been thinking long and hard about the Scrawhisper site for sometime now. Fewer people have been visiting since we stopped offering prizes and doing weekly challenges, less people are actually finding time at the moment to scrapbook and although we tried to keep lots of posts happening on the site, life just gets in the way and it's pretty difficult thinking of new content to keep things interesting for our visitors. We rarely get comments on posts and we've not had many people signing up for the latest team game either - we have enough for about 1 and a half teams so far.
Scrapwhispers has been around for a number of years now and as you are aware has changed frequently to try and keep people interested. We have decided we don't want to lose all that history, but equally we cannot continue in the format we are with little feedback etc. We have no idea who is even reading this announcement! :)
So - on that basis we've thought long and hard and have decided that we will be taking a Summer break from Scrapwhispers. Everyone wants and needs to get out in the world to enjoy the summer sunshine whilst it is here, make lots of lovely memories and take huge volumes of photos - and then in the autumn when we are back everyone will have have lots of great things to scrap! :)
We're not defeated just yet - but we think a vacation will help us regroup, refocus and refuel!
Hope you all understand. If you have signed up for the new team game already your name stays on the list - See you in October!
