October 2013 Winners, Features & Finalists!

Hello everyone!  Welcome to the Winners' post!!  I'm sure you have all been waiting with baited breath to see who the Design Team has selected as this month's stand outs!  We received 57 entries & SO MANY of them were REALLY good!!  I know I say it each & every month, but the fact is it is TRUE that the standard of our entries increases monthly.  People are clearly motivated by the prizes & kudos & that is such a wonderful thing!

Voting is something we take very seriously & each & every entry is given due consideration.  Do not be discouraged if you are not featured.  It is no easy feat with such amazing international talent abounding & it is not the main objective of our scrapbooking journeys, just the cherry on top for those who work hard on honing their talents.  We aspire to INSPIRE you to CREATE, enjoy the process & be INVOLVED in our community at Scrap Around the World.

The winner of our October 2013 Challenge is JELISSA MEI of Singapore with this absolutely faultless layout!  She has won 3 paper packs, along with embellishments, from Donna Salazar, 
as well as a Guest Designer opportunity with us!

{Yes from now on the Design Team is voting on 10 layouts a 
month according to points so we are stating TEN positions!}

Finally our RANDOM WINNER!

I was SO HAPPY when the name ELAINE COUSTLEY {Australia} came up to win Eila's lovely pack of flowers!  
Elaine has been a faithful player here at Scrap Around The World & was just saying on her blog recently that she 
was giving up playing in challenges for a while!  Well obviously our mood board dissuaded her & hopefully 
this prize will lift her spirits! 

 Elaine please sign up as a FOLLOWER of Eila Sandberg's blog HERE & e mail me at scrapaddict {at} to claim your prize, giving me your full postal address & putting "OCT 2013 SATW RANDOM WINNER" in the subject line, so we can get that out to you asap!

days to come!!!  I'm sure you all agree?!? Please leave some COMMENT LOVE for these
