The Island is on vaca!!!

Hey everyone!
I meant to post this yesterday and didn't get a chance!
I've let all the finalists know already but we are postponing the finals until next weekend!
All projects are due to me by Friday June 28 at midnight!

My daughter's softball team made it to the tournaments and have won 2 games and lost one. After a season of only 2 wins I was just as shocked as anyone! Next game is in just a few minutes so I'm off!!!!

Redemption had finished and FINAL CHALLENGE INFO!!!

Hello everyone!
Well Redemption Island has a winner and this crafter will be coming back to the mainland to join the other crafters in this season's FINAL challenge!!!
Here was the project that won redemption:
Beautiful Layout and perfect for today :)
So on to the last challenge...and boy is this gonna be a doozy ;)
Since it's the final before we crown our winner I will be issuing a few different projects to do! Because of this all projects will be DUE JUNE 21, 2013 by 11:59 pm. Any projects not turned in by then will not be able to be voted on! Make sure you turn in every project. 1 missing will get you torched immediately!!!
Ok on the projects...
#1- Same as last season.. I want to see a sign... Proclaiming you are the winner of Paper Craft Island Season #2. Make it out of whatever you'd like!
#2- A Layout... For Father's Day... and it must be all black, white, grey... Photos will be acceptable on this one! You do NOT have to have photos.. If you would rather just use photo mats to show where photos would go!
#3 - A Graduation Card. Could be a high school or a preschool...or anything else.. Doesn't matter.. BUT it must have ribbons on it somewhere!
#4- This you get to pick... Make ANYTHING to show WHY you are the best crafter here on the island!!!!
That's it.. (hehehe) You have basically over 3 weeks so these projects should be AWESOME!
Can't wait to see them!!!
I have a jury in place to vote for the winner this season!! They are a mix of people that have been on the Island with you as well as ones that have NOT been on the Island! :)
I figured this was the best way to prevent anyone from stacking the votes :)
Good luck to you all and I can't wait to see what you can do!!!! :)
Until then

Another crafter gets torched!

Good evening everyone! Sorry for the delay! It's been crazy hectic in my hut here lately! So lets get to it...
By a vote of 2-1 (immunity winner's vote does not count as there wasn't a tie!)
The crafter who will be leaving the main Island is...

We are sad to see #2 go...
She's going to redemption!
Her and the crafter who won the last battle will now battle it out head to head to see who can survive and come back to Island in our finals!
So for these 2 the challenge this week (due Saturday (May 25) night by 11:59 pm EASTERN)
is simply this...
With memorial day coming up I'd like to see a red, white, and blue layout honoring those who have given their all for this country!
There must be stars and an eagle OR flag somewhere on the layout!
Good luck ladies!!!
The remaining crafters have this week off!
BUT I will have them vote on who to bring back!!
Good luck ladies!!!
Until then...

Big Challenge Projects Revealed!

Good Mornin' Islanders!
Today is the day... Big Challenge Projects Revealed!! Another crafter will not survive this round! Oh me....Oh my... Another good-bye! Who will it be?? They had to make a Mother's Day Project that was vintage-y AND it had to have stars on it somewhere! OH MY! Talk about difficult but they all did an amazing job! Here are the projects!
Immunity Winner (can not be voted off but CAN be voted for Fan Favorite!)

Now on to the projects that can be both voted off/or voted for Fan Favorite!

It's gonna be tough on you crafters/Islanders to vote!
Crafters- I need to know (via email!) who you choose to be voted off of the Island!
Islanders (everyone else who isn't competing!) I need you to comment with your choice # for Fan Favorite!! If our Fan Favorite survives this week they will get a slight advantage in the Finals!! UBER important voting week!!!!! :)
All voted must be cast by Sunday night at 11:59 pm eastern!
Good luck to you all!!
Until Monday...

Last Immunity Winner Revealed!!!

Hi everyone! Sorry this post is soooo late! With the Birthday boy having his game and party on Saturday and then Mother's Day on Sunday I'm a little behind!!

The crafters if they chose to play for immunity had to make something birthday-ish with the theme of video games using only the colors Red, Blue, Green, and Black! Now that said if they had a human cut out or piecing they could use skin color.

Also we had a redemption play off... Only one turned in a project so she will continue on to try to make it back to the main Island! Here's her project:

And yes,.. It's sideways... I have NO idea why but blogger hates me today! The photo I have is right side up but try as I might I can not get it flipped around right and I'm tired of fighting with it! :( I'm sorry redemption player!!

Here are the projects for those playing for Immunity....




And I had the Birthday Boy check em all out and his pick for winner of Immunity is...
So as long as #1 turns in a project this week they are safe!
Remember your BIG Challenge (Vintage Mother's Day) is due this Friday by 11:59 pm Eastern!
I will post them Saturday and hopefully we have all votes in this time around in a timely manner!
Good luck to you all and I am SOOOOO sorry I didn't get this posted sooner!!
Until next time....
