Okay, I am nothing if not literal, so when Wendy told me the best way to understand what the Variety Challenge was, was to go back and look at the challenges from when they were first posted, I literally did it. I read every single theme and variety challenge from the first one to the last! Whew, my hubby is right when he says I have too much time on my hands. While I was at it, I compiled them all into a single document and I updated the master thread for the variety challenge, so all the links are now there up to SBVC176. Now I just need to start scrapping some of these older challenges.
