Check back on Thursday for another “Around the Word” challenge.


  1. This was a tough one, but I voted for Donna simply because she nailed the color of those blue domes, and I loved her idea of linking them to the shape of an umbrella.

  2. I voted for #15 Irini’s scrapbook page. I think the page’s theme is perfect for the photo inspiration. The sea water is beautiful! Fabulous entry!

  3. This is so hard. To me, everybody did a great job and should be a winner. It’s great to see how inspired people get.

  4. Wow, this was a real tough call, I loved all of the entries. I did finally vote for Virginia because she had such a great idea…when I saw her card I had one of those “now why didn’t I think of that” moments. Thanks Vicky, this is the best challenge!

  5. Woow, all fabulous cards here.. great job everyone.. i vote for wonderful row of houses card with gems by Virginia, that’s melting my heart 🙂

  6. I need some of your computer expertise Vicky. I had someone ask me :
    is ‘Anonymous’ the only way to vote if one doesn’t have a blog? What is a URL?
    pss have tried to become a ‘follower’ without success.
    But I don’t know the answers. Can you help?

    1. I don’t understand the question…. you vote just by clicking a star… no one is asking for URLs or names….
      Ask her again what does she want to do?

  7. So many gorgeous entries Vicky but I voted (yes, by clicking the star) for Virginia. I loved the rows of blue houses which so called to mind the photo for me. Thanks for the chance to vote!!

  8. Hi Laura.

    InLinkz removed the link from the collection because it has been voted for, more that 10 times from the same IP address.

    InLinkz voting is based on cookies and IP addresses to count the votes and make sure that people don’t over-vote. If a cookie is being “abused” (erased and re-issued) a lot of times, then this usually means that someone that loves your link very much, does not play fair.

    Thank you for understanding,



  9. Thanks for letting me know. I’ll have to figure out who among my friends got so excited. Shame on them.

    1. When you sent this message voting was already closed! So sorry! But be sure to check my new challenge! Submissions are open!
