LOL CeCe - so do I! If you are up for a second one that would be great, then I only have three to do! LOL

By the way, any folks hosting a challenge (or two) please send me any supplies folks will need as soon as you know what they are (other than routine paper, adhesive, etc). I will be starting a new thread for that as soon as I know of something out of the ordinary that people will need. Right now I just know of a few things (a method to score paper, ribbon, printer with color ink)

Prizes are generally in the $5-10 range. No one expects more than that. I have only given 5 dollar prizes in the past. I did get a prize in the mail of "goodies" which no doubt was worth more than that, but it is really up to you. People do these challenges for the fun of it, for learning new things, and seeing everyone's take on the same challenge.

As far as prizes go, if you are a designer that sells files, you might offer a file for free, or a particular amount to spend at your "store". People like to give $5-10 prizes to spend at an online store such as DigiScrapKits (a favorite of mine), Lettering Delights, ScrappinDoodles, etc. I think Dawn and Tyler, etc. usually offer a certain amount to spend at their stores, or a free file, something like that. I have never won from them, so not sure. The beauty of files from online stores, then there is no shipping and handling involved. But if you want to put together a box of things like paper, ribbon, twine, etc., and offer that as a prize, that is always wonderful too.

Well, I have been rambling too much I think. Hope this was helpful to you. :D

What CeCe said!

Not rambling, imo, just a nicely detailed answer.
