Mr Linky problems - August Challenge relaunched

As some of you will probably have noticed, the August Stampalot challenge was taken down yesterday, and we are relaunching it today.

We had major problems as our Mr Linky widget appears to have been hijacked and had over 350 bogus entries, including some from our own DT without them knowing! We tried for days to sift through them, but it was an impossible task. Brenda has been in touch with the Man from Mr Linky who said 'I am sorry to say I can offer no sure explanation why the widgets appear to have merged at some point.' - Guess that's a no then.

Therefore we decided to start again. For those of you who had already entered please accept our apologies and we'd be very grateful if you could pop your link into Mr Linky once more, even if we had already left you a comment.

So, here it is again, and lets all keep our fingers crossed that he behaves himself from now on!As it's holiday time and lots of peeps have things planned, we would have another nice simple theme for you:

*************Whatever You Fancy**************

That's it in a nutshell, you can create whatever you like, although I must remind you to please check the challenge rules before you link up your work.
Here is the fabulous prize from Sir Stampalot.


Our Guest Designer for August is Esther and look at the super creation she has made for us................

Sorry, no project this month









Thanks for your patience! Let's hope normal service is resumed, and that Brenda can get back to her unpacking.

Sally

Should Mr Linky go AWOL, or throw another hissy fit, you can leave a message with an html link to your post in the comments section.

Have you checked your entry is valid and that you have combined your entry with no more than five other challenges........if you have the DT will not comment on your work and you will not be eligible for the prize or Top 3.
