A Special Tribute Post to ALL our past WINNERS!
Scrap Around The World Eye Candy!!
Plus a Breakdown of the Nationality of our Winners!!!

Hello all!  If you are reading this today, the 24th December 2014, 
congratulate yourself for being so well prepared & for spoiling
 yourself enough to treat yourself to a coffee or tea break on your
 favourite challenge blog :) Scrap Around The World!!

We decided to let our design team off their tutorials this month to give
everyone more free/family/friends time to prepare for the holidays,
so instead we have a fun SURPRISE feature for you today -
ALL OUR PAST WINNERS!!  All 18 of them!!!

Pretty cool idea we came up with huh?!?
Thanks to our new Tuturials co-ordinator Heather McMahon for
gathering together all the information needed for this post to be possible.
Sit back & enjoy the ride as we take you on a trip down memory lane,
the past 18 months of glorious inspiration & victory!!

19 Challenges to date with winners from all around the world!  
As we had TEN EPIC WINNERS in May for our Epic Anniversary Event
I decided to do a fun tally of the countries our winners currently reside in
& came up with some interesting results!

Since SATW began we have had one winner from Norway, one from France,
one from Greece, one from India, 2 wins from Singapore {both from Jelissa Mei!}, 
one from Belarus, one from Ukraine, 3 winners from the USA, 4 winners from Australia,
 4 winners from Russia & EIGHT WINS FROM POLAND!! {2 wins from Anna Komenda!}

That tells me that the Poles know a thing or two about scrapbooking!
They are well in the lead with Russia & Australia hot on their heels!!
I hope they have inspired you to create top calibre entries, wherever
you live in the world, & keep a keen eye on them for inspiration! 

Time to get your game faces on ladies & gents!!
After all the turkey eating is over tomorrow & the next day
 you will still have a few days left to get your entry in.

 Remember our time-saving December rule -
 tags & ATCs allowed FOR THIS MONTH ONLY!!

***From Scrap Around The World, we wish all our players, fans & Facebook 
Supporters a very merry Christmas to those who celebrate it, 
to all a safe & joyful holiday season.***
