And last but not least..... to all eliminated players.
Please don't be too sad....I hope you had fun in Oz while it lasted! Sharpen your scrapping skills and come back to give it another try Scrapping Survivor Season 5. I HATE to say goodbye to you,
This is my least favorite part of the game :(

I would be thrilled if you still came to chat with us! And follow your fellow players. Eventually they might need your vote ;)
Again - I Thank you for playing!!! :)
AND- If you would still like to do the challenges- Just for fun... please do!! Just do not post them in tribal council. You can post them in the gallery in the Voted Off the Island? (http://gallery.gingerscraps.net/showgallery.php?cat=593) section. And feel free to continue to enjoy the fun banter, we would love for you to stick around and chit chat with us!

Message to you ALL!!

I want to take a minute to tell you just how much I enjoyed your Layouts this week!
Even if this is the last week here in Oz, I hope you will have a scrapbook page that you can always cherish.

As I checked all the layouts, going through the gallery and forum, I found myself in tears- blowing my nose one minute ... then laughing and smiling the next.
The journaling and LO's were just amazing! It has been an honor and privilege to read your journaling. Thank you for letting us into your heart.

On a personal note, I have not scrapped in a very long time! I still LOVE the art, and so enjoy looking at others pages. However, years ago, I went through a divorce, and it broke my heart. It seemed that I could not make a page without feeling like I wanted to cry. In every photo, I saw sadness, I saw my kids who were putting on a happy face, and I saw a broken family. I didn't want to just skip years of photos- and felt like someday I would be able to overcome the sadness and create layouts with all the photos. I do not think that will ever happen, so I have decided to just pick up here- now- where we are at this moment. My kids are happy and healthy, time has helped heal. They are amazing kids, and we have a unique and very close relationship. I want to preserve OUR memories!

YOU all have encouraged me, you have given me strength. I hope that in the very near future, you will all see a new layout from me!

Congratulations to everyone moving on to Week 4 and to everyone that participated in this amazing Survivor season so far! You are all winners in my book....you have bared your souls to us and ....wow....I was truly blown away by all of the gorgeous layouts! So much talent in 1 place!

I too was blown away by each page with stunning page composition and heartfelt journaling. As others have stated a combination of tears and smiles with each page.
and
after reading thru the credits, there are more kits on my wish list!

whether you are staying on in oz or not, super meaningful pages were created and that is what is most important.

Congrats to everyone who made it to round 4! :)

I just wanted to mention that I get comments about my journaling often, even when we aren't in Oz and lots of people say "I wish I could do that" or "I can't do that." Take a look at the layouts from the last 2 weeks and read the wonderful heartfelt journaling; we ALL have it in us! Just keep typing what your heart says in the good and the bad and you can do awesome journaling like every last person who visited Oz has! Crafty people with big hearts can do ANYTHING!

I'm going to bring my big bottle of computer-safe Windex into the Voted off The Island gallery which hasn't been used since 2011 and keep playing along. Ginger has given us great challenges and I want to bring that Technicolor magic back to Kansas! I hope the rest of you join me now that we've escaped Oz!

Awwww, I got voted off, but it's been fun and there are soooo many fantastic LO's, so ladies keep it up and I will be watching and cheering my favs on. Thanks for the fun challenge and all of the hard work that has been put into this. Good luck all!

Whew! I am in for another week. Congratulations to everyone who had layouts this last time around. So many wonderful ones. So much of us "exposed" through all that heartfelt journaling. I plan to have tissues on hand when I look at the new entries. Amazing. We are totally amazing women. Each and every one of us!!

Thank you to everyone who voted! Once again I'm happy to see that the five I voted for are moving on to Week 4 too! Sad to see others go, but happy that I get to stress out for another week. ;)

(*note, stress is all in good fun and I can't wait to see what the new challenge is!!)

Ginger, I totally understand this. I didn't go through a divorce, but have been through so much heartache in the last several years. There were years of photos that I couldn't even make myself look at, let alone scrap!

Reading through a lot of the emotional, heart-wrenching layouts in the gallery (mine wasn't one of them!) made me realize that scrapbooking these times can help me heal.

I'm so excited that you are at a place where you can start preserving memories again! :)

Congrats to all those moving on to Week 4. I'll be leaving Oz, but I've had so much fun playing along and have met some really awesome ladies. All the layouts have been absolutely awesome and for that reason I believe everyone is a winner. Good luck to all those who remain in Oz and I'll be cheering you all on from the side lines.

Oh Ginger, that is such an inspiring message. So glad you and your kids have "come out the other side" so well. Been there done that, it can be crippling. I do find scrapping, with all our digi friends to be sooo therapeutic!

I am very humbled to see that I will be staying in OZ. The layouts this week were fantastic. To those of you who have been asked to leave OZ let me take a moment to tell you how much I've enjoyed all of your layouts. Please stick around and continue to play along, I love looking at everyones layouts. To those who will be staying in OZ congratulations!!!

Congrats to all that made it through and a big thanks to everyone who voted for me. I'm excited for the next challenge.

Ginger...sending you a big hug. I have moments when certain photos bring back painful memories. I have used this hobby of ours as therapy...more times than memory keeping actually. I hope that you will find yourself scrapping pages again soon.

I am just getting on to the site today.. We had a little toddler emergency this morning.. my youngest son had to bring home one of the real life baby dolls last night for his class at school... well my little grand daughter took a very big liking to her and decided it was her new bff.. When she left to go back to school this morning, my little granddaughter was so so heartbroken.. she cried and sobbed and was still sobbing when I got back from taking the kids to school.. so it was time for grandma and Sierra to have their very first Grandma/kid date... We went shopping for her own little baby to love and feed and talk to. She is much happier now and though it threw my schedule way off today, it was well worth it!!!
So sad to see so many leave oz this week, everyone's layouts are so amazing and I have enjoyed learning more and more about everyone. I am happy with all the new friends in my life!
Ginger your story hit my daughters heart strings today.. She is feeling that pain of not wanting to scrap anymore even though it has been such a big part of her life. Going through her divorce right now makes her cry every time she looks at pictures and she feels so lost and broken. It made her know that she is not alone and that hopefully some day she will want to scrap her memories again.
I am excited to see challenge 4!!! Good luck everyone!

Ginger...reading this makes me sad and then happy. I am so sorry you have pain that prevents you from doing the very thing that you help all of us do everyday!!! And I know how that feels, we all have "things" that remind us of painful days that we try to avoid. (for me it was a shirt, if you can believe that, that I FINALLY gave away so I would stop coming across it in my closet, LOL)

BUT I am so happy that you decided to make new, happy memories and scrap those. Moving on in that way will probably help the healing even more!

Happy Scrapping!!!! Looking forward to your layouts!
