June 2014 Winners, Features & Finalists! Plus some Honourable Mentions too!!

124 AMAZING entries this month!  Yikes you are NOT making life easy for me LOL!!  
Over 9  hours later we have our winners!!!  Seriously this took 2 evenings!!  Rest 
assured that I have viewed each & every one, as has the Design Team too!! 

 Each month I receive at least TEN "Top Ten" lists from the DT & make up a points 
chart & meticulously add, add, add until we have our winners, chosen by a complete
 cross-section of the team! {And different DT members each month} so we really
 do take this seriously.  We could come up with a much quicker way but we want
 to honour the effort you make & the skills & the talent you each possess.

Because we had such a GREAT turnout this month we decided to include 
10 honourable mentions too.  We may not do this each time & it would be far
too time-consuming to link up to 20 people & display all those projects, but
if you see your name there know that you came *this close! & be encouraged!

A reminder of the board, which really brought people out of their 
comfort zones & produced some phenomenal creations!!
