Jessy Christopher said...

Congrats to all winners! The entries are beautiful & unique!!

Gayle Price said...

Congratulations ladies !! All of you so deserving of being selected, but can I just say how very, very difficult it was to just choose 4 from all of the many wonderful entries that were submitted. I know what its like to spend time and put a lot of thought and love into a project hoping that it will be loved and appreciated by every one and then being disappointed when you don't receive a mention. Never stop being creative !! Never stop exploring ways to be artistically expressive !! Art will always be subjective....that's what makes it, and us, unique and individual. Personally, I like to think that the "process" is more important than the outcome.

Lizzyc said...

Congrats to all the team at SATW!! what an amazing lot of layouts.. I could not ever imagine how you decide on all of those entries.. A big well done to all the girls mentioned above.. your layouts are stunning and beautifully created!! I look forward to the new challenge next month.. and isn't it wonderful to share this love of scrapbooking with friends from all around the world!!!

Heather McMahon said...

What a thrill and honour to be among the prizewinners! Congrats must also go to Helen and the DT. What an amazing job they did in spreading the SATW word so quickly. I am looking forward to participating in future challenges whenever I can! Woohoo!

Ava Gavloski said...

Helen and DT, over 80 entries had to be fun yet challenging to choose from. Be proud Helen and team, I think you have a winning combination to draw happy designers just to be part of the fun team you have here. \I think the honourable mention makes us galz feel like we have where is my H. badge to display so that you get more traffic...wink wink..all the best and yes, you have accomplished your goal here at SATW.

Ella Swan said...

Thanks Ava! I decided against an honourable mention badge to keep the badges sought after & also to differentiate between features & honourable mentions. That doesn't mean that your achievement is not tremendous though! (wink wink!!) Feel free to mention it in your resume linked up to the winner's post :-D

Mrs Rogers said...

Congratulations to all the winners what amazing pages you have all created. I would also like to thank all the DT that left comments on my blog. I cannot tell you what these comments mean to me, thank you so much for taking the time to do this.

Ella Swan said...

{{{Hugs Sarah!}}} We will try our best to keep up with the commenting as we realise how encouraging it is ;) We've split into 2 teams so we can have one month on/one month off so it doesn't become a chore for any of the DT - who are all crazy busy with other DTs too...
