VSN - Have You Tried It? Part 1

Every few months or so, SCS hosts a great event called Virtual Stamp Night or VSN. Each hour, a new challenge is posted for the participants. Folks have 45 minutes (on our honor) to complete each challenge. This event runs Friday night and all day on Saturday. Entries must be uploaded into the gallery by Monday night after the event. I have participated many times before, but I've never done all of them ... until now. :)
