Final Scavenger Hunt Check-in and Linkie

Well, today is the last day of summer and this weekend marks the end of the 2013 Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt. Thank you to everyone who has joined in this year. There's been a terrific turn out this year, and I have loved seeing everyone's posts.  Today, I'm posting my item #21 a photograph with an artistic tool. I have found that I use my iphone more and more often in my photography, so I took this selfie with it.
Today, I would like you to post a comment telling me how many of the 21 items you found.  I will award two prizes.  One randomly selected from those who have found all 21 items and one from everyone who participated and found any at all. I'd also love you to add a link below to a post about the scavenger hunt.  It can be one you put up this weekend with some new finds. Or it can be to an older, favorite post. I also ask that you visit a few other participants to see what they found this summer.
Thank you again soooo much for participating! I'll leave this post up all weekend and pick winners sometime early next week.

Thanks, Rinda, it was just as much fun doing this the third time as it was the first two years. I'll be looking forward to next year's list! Safe and happy travels to Oregon! I'll be thinking of you.

Karen said...

Oops! Just realized you want our total here in the comments. I got all 21 of them.

Thanks Rinda, this has been a fabulous hunt and I've loved seeing all the finds in various places around the world.

Happy travels over the next week or so - good luck with the drop offs and all the very best to Henry as he starts this new and exciting stage in life.

Thanks, Rinda, for hosting another great Photo Scavenger Hunt. I can't believe I was able to get 21 items. I was sweating it there for a bit.

Hello Rinda, and thank-you so much for such an enjoyable summer party! I found all 21 items for the first time :). Hoping you have lots of fun having a look at everyone's contribution and seeing just how widely across the world we are spread - a tribute to you.

Hello Rinda. Thanks you so much for organising this. My first time joining in - and I can't wait for next year! Do so hope you will repeat the event!!! By a bit of fiddling at the end I managed to post all 21 plus the 2 substitutes. They are all on the one page - and the link SHOULD take everyone straight to it - if I have done it right!! Thanks for a load of fun this summer, and an opportunity to look at things differently, taking photos of things I wouldn't normally. I am usually the one grovelling on the ground, with a macro lens on, trying to get the inside of a flower!

Lesley G said...

A great way to spend those spare moments although I think I drove my family mad (!)
Thank's Rinda.
Love that photo of you with your iphone, mine also plays a huge part in my life!
Until the next time...is it feet up for you now??? :)

Lesley G said...

Ha ha, I did the same as Karen and forgot to mention that I snapped them all plus a bonus - thanks again :)

Hi Rinda, thanks so much for organising such a great scavenger hunt, have really enjoyed it, managed to get all 21 subjects, and have found some great new blogs to follow too.
Looking forward to next years already,

Oops not quite the first. I scheduled my post for midnight and have only just woken at 9am I love my lie-in on a Saturday.

Thanks for the Challenge really loved doing it. I found all 21 items plus the 2 bonus ones.

I labelled all my posts so the link shows all posts for the challenge.

Hugs BJ

Ladkyis said...

I got 21 this year. Don't add my name to the draw, as one of last year's winners I am quite keen to let someone else have the excitement of a prize.
I have really enjoyed the hunt this year and I think that Mr M and Miss Em have enjoyed it a lot too. Please do it again next year!

Abi said...

thank you so much for organising the hunt Rinda. I so enjoyed it. I didn't manage all the items but got fourteen!

Jane said...

thanks again for a great hunt Rinda. I did manage to find all the items but don't want to be included in the draw as I was lucky enough to win last year x

Missus Wookie said...

I've so enjoyed the hunt, thank you for organising it!

I managed the full 21 twice, once at Legoland in a day, and the other over the summer break - but will continue to collect London based shots for my London album so haven't finished yet :)

Andy said...

Hi Rinda,
Thank you so much for inviting us to join you over the Summer Scavenger Hunt. This is the first year I have joined in after been inspired by my mother-in-laws in 2012. I was hooked.
I have manage to find all 21 topics and collected my favourite ones all on my last link. Hope there will be another hunt in 2014. Have a great weekend:)

Sian said...

Thanks Rinda! I missed out a couple - no aquarium or zoo visits here - but I still had a great time and I'm already looking forward to doing it again.

Susi said...

Thank you, I had a great time playing along and seeing photos of others finds. I managed to locate all 21 items plus the 2 bonus items. Looking forward to next Summers list.

Liz said...

Thank you so much for hosting this it's been brilliant. I managed to get 21 photos but #1 is substituted as I didn't find a market. I'm already looking forward to next years hunt. :0)

susanernst said...

I have taken pictures of most of the items on the list but have not posted all of them on my blog. It has been a busy, busy summer!I will get the photos up eventually and will visit your pages to see all the cool places you all were at this summer.
This has been fun! Thanks!

Amanda Jane said...

Thank you for organising this Rinda. It's been fun. I got 19/21 plus both the substitutes. I suppose that translates to 21/21.

Miriam said...

Hello Rinda, thanks so much for all your work organising the hunt again this year. I loved it! I found all 21 items plus a bonus and something extra just for you x Good Luck to Henry and you in the next chapter of his (and your) life.

Becky said...

Thank you so much for hosting this Rinda. I have had so much fun and so have Hugh and Penny in helping me. I managed to get all 21 items plus one bonus! Really hope that you do it again next year :) Thanks again xx

Deb @ Paper Turtle said...

My dear Rinda ~ It was so much fun participating in your third annual Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt! Thanks so much for organizing it, for hosting all the link ups, and for the fun list of things to look for this summer. I am in the habit of looking for clouds in the shape of something now!

I found all 21 items this year! :o)!!!

scrappyjacky said...

Thanks so much for organising this again,Rinda....a lot of fun as always....though I only managed 17 this year.

furrypig said...

Firstly a huge thank you Rinda for another great scavenger hunt I have totally enjoyed seeking out the objects/subjects! I also drove my family slightly mad with asking them to help me find items and also to find something in the clouds! I managed all 21 with both bonus items....just scraped in having left home in my PJ's this morning to drive to a theatre and then got out in my night attire to take a photo..... luckily there were no theatre goers at 7.30 am!!! Thanks xxx

ComfyMom~Stacey said...

Really had a lot of fun this year. I managed to get 47 photos but only 20 items.

The rain has really played hell with my getting a cloud photo.

Fiona@Staring at the Sea said...

Thank you for setting the hunt again this year Rinda. I have thoroughly enjoyed looking out for all the items over the last 3 months. I'm claiming 20 found as my fisherman is rather dodgy!

A Focused Journey said...

Thank you for this FUN challenge. This was so outside of my comfort zone and it pushed me to take photos with my phone. I have all 21 + both bonus photos.
I look forward to next summer's challenge!

Jo Murray said...

As last year, the scavenger hunt conveniently comes up just when we are off on holidays. I've been missing in action for a month, busy collecting my photos. Thanks again Rinda. I got all of them, including the options, tho' a couple are taken closer to home. I'll be back next year.

Irene said...

Another great year for your Hunt. I didn't think I was going to make it, but I did manage all 21 items in the end. Phew! Thank you so much Rinda. Your Scavenger Hunt is a highlight of my year. It certainly makes me look closer and appreciate more the items on your list.

Karen said...

Really enjoyed the scavenger hunt. I only managed to find 18 of the items. Hope you do another hunt next year.

Alison said...

Thank you so much for providing another summer of fun, Rinda...I managed all 21 items in the end!

quiltingfool said...

I did all 21, substituting a sundial for a dinosaur. I had a lot of fun chasing down things that fit the descriptions. Hope to see it again next year, and will definitely join again. Thank you so much for hosting this.

Wrightboysmum said...

Thanks for a great photohunt and my final tally was 19. Two eluded me through my own fault lol. I loved the IPhone photo as you are right they are a great tool for scrapbookers and memory recording.

sky-blu-pink said...

Hello Rinda! I found 21! Hooray! Looking forward to next year's challenge

Sandie said...

I had great fun again with this Rinda. Thank you so much for organising it and I completed all 21 plus a sundial. Infact, I included two of some as
I had second chances!!
I hope you do it again next Summer otherwise I may have to come up with my own list as I enjoy this challenge so much! :)

Louise said...

Thanks Rinda, the whole family enjoyed your hunt. I managed 20 of them...leaving the selfie till last and then never got around to doing it. Looking forward to next summer hunt now!

Melissa said...

Another wonderful scavenger hunt Rinda - thanks so much for hosting it again this year! I found all 21 items plus both bonus items - YIPPEE!

happysnapper said...

Thanks ks for hosting I didn't get all of them this year. I did not see a police car in a situation I felt comfortable to point my camera at! Of course I will see one parked in a car park today.

Linda said...

Lol rinda, there's me first to link in, but last to comment! That's because I am in your part of the world (oregon at the moment, just about to motorcycle down the coast back to SF). I've loved doing the scavenger hunt again this year and can't wait to do it all again next year! I didn't manage all of them,/just missed 1, so 20 is my total. Absolutely loving our vacation in USA, what a wonderful part of the world you live in! Such friendly people!

Gail said...

Thanks Rinda for hosting this. I didn't do as well this year. I got 18 and 1 bonus item. Watch I bet I see 2 of those items today. :) As for linking up, once again the linkup program is not accepting my info. I've tried a couple of times but nothing. My final update can be found at http://scrappyknitter.typepad.com/odds_and_ends/ It's the post at the top of my blog.

Julia said...

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Fabulous hunt again Rinda. You are a star for organising. See you all next Summer!

debs14 said...

Sending enormous amounts of thanks for organising this Rinda - it's so much fun.
I managed to find all 21 this year and didn't have to use the substitute this time!
Roll on Scavenger Hunt 2014 x

Starnitesky said...

HI Rinda
Thanks for another year of scavenging for items, I really enjoy this in the summer. I only managed 16 items this year!

Textile Recycler said...

Thank you Rinda for your scavenger hunt. Oddly, I found your blog by accident...or was it. You saved my life..I am so grateful for giving me a reason.....

Textile Recycler said...

Oops.. I found all 21 and one bonus photo.

furrypig said...

I have just finished visiting and commenting on all the other blogs who joined in with the scavenger hunt.... wow there are some amazing photos I could give awards for so many different categories ie best animal photo most amusing commentary most stunning shot etc etc but I won't.... so much talent out there and so interesting to visit all those blogs and have a peek into other people's summers/life

Jennie said...

Thank you so much Rinda for hosting this hunt. I have enjoyed being able to participate for the first time though I didn't manage to collect all the photos - I think I got 20. I look forward to doing better next time! J x

Carola Bartz said...

Rinda, I almost missed the final post!!! That would have been so sad, since I've found all 21 items. This was so much fun, Rinda, I absolutely enjoyed finding the items for the photos. I hope you do this again next year! Thank you so much for organizing the Summertime Photo Scavenger Hunt!

helena said...

thanks Rinda for another fun hunt. I found all 21 items this year

Julie Kirk said...

I just wanted to say thanks for another great summer of scavenging. [I haven't had time to create a new post - but I did find all 21 ... and very satisfying it was too!].

I've thoroughly enjoyed keeping my list with me on my travels this year - here's to just as much fun in summer 2014!

Fiona said...

Thanks for doing this again. I got all 21 plus the two bonus items.

Cheri said...

Making it in just under the wire as usual. I got all 21 items plus the two bonus items and had multiple contenders for many of the items. Which was fun... but hard choosing which one ultimately made it into the layout. Thanks so much for another great summer of scavenging. Loved it!

Rosalie said...

Thanks, I had a lot of fun doing the scavenger. This is the first year that I joined you, but I will be back next summer. I found all 21.

Beverly said...

Thanks so much for organizing the hunt gain, Rinda! I got 19 this year. I'll be sharing the Chosen One's and SweetGirl's over the next few days.

john-w said...

Hi Rinda, I know that I left you a comment when I first linked up, but I don't see it now?!?!?!

Just to say again, thanks for hosting this fun summertime event. Can't wait for next year's list to come out. When do you normally post the list in the new year?

Great idea, and thoroughly enjoyable. John W #17.
