Special Celebration Winners! Finally!!!

Zoe August 27, 2011 18

Hello Hello!!

I am so sorry for my absence and on top of that I am sooooo sorry for taking so long to finalise the celebrations in July. I am making some changes which will be announced soon which has led to an incredibly busy month that I hadn’t quite anticipated. I ended up taking some big leaps and bounds rather than going via stepping stones. LOL Hence the crazy month!!

But the guilt of this last week has really set in and I just had to drop around to each of the amazing projects that were entered into the Make it Crafty 1 year celebrations and leave some love and thanks.

As I hopped around I was left in awe at the incredible amount of effort that you all went to. I feel so lucky to have such incredible talent playing with the Make it Crafty images. I was also so happy to read on a number of occasions that it was the first time a few of you had ever merged images together! You sounded as though you had plenty of fun so I do hope you have continued to enjoy creating scenes. 🙂

So at the end of leaving my thanks and trying to pick my jaw up off the ground… I have been left with a dilemma. How on earth am I going to choose winners from all these incredible projects?

So… I am going to chicken out. For the grand winners I have to use a random generator – however I have also decided to have some special mentions too!

Sending you all big Aussie Squeezes!!

    Congrats to the winners!
    Zoe, I’ve been busy this month making cards, 91 so far, and the stamps you sent me keep getting buried. I couldn’t stand the creative mess anymore and in the process, I found my blog candy stamps, Whimsical Mushroom and Mini Sprites. I finally stamped them into my sample binder so they could get put away properly and stamped a few spare images for cards. I took out my new crayola markers and used the coloured images from the package as a guide. Considering that the markers don’t blend like copics do, I was very happy with how they turned out so far. It took a while, but you finally have me colouring, so give yourself a huge pat on the back your part in making it happen.
