Winners - Challenge#28 - Theme

Hello, I'm running rather late with this post - busy catching up with stuff at home since getting back from Florida on Monday night!  It was fabulous!  Anyway, it's time to announce the winners and honourable mentions for our Oriental challenge.  Not so many people played along this time, but those who did really rocked it and made it tough for us.  So here are the results:


Love the kraft with the blues and green.  
Super little origami bird and that watercolour panel with oriental characters is outstanding!

(in order of submission)

Shawna has created so much depth on her one layer card.
Love the shadow behind the focal image and the palms are just perfect.

We really like the use of mulberry paper here, adds so much texture.
Great image and beautifully coloured.  Super oriental characters.

The oriental dragon is awesome - love the mixture of shimmer, sparkle and colour.
Lovely layout and great colours.

Congratulations to you all.  Please pick up your badges from the sidebar and display them on your blog.

Before I go, there's still time to join in with our colour challenge.  You can pick any colour for our MONOCHROMATIC theme, just remember that it has to be masculine in style.  Deadline for submission is midnight (GMT) Tuesday 1st March (7.00pm EDT).  Have fun!

Winners - Challenge#27 - Theme

Good morning everyone!  Our Babies & Little Boys challenge was another popular theme with over 50 submissions - and they are all absolutely fabulous.  So, once again it was really hard to pick an overall winner, but we managed it.  We do, however, have several Honourable Mentions.


Fabulous effect with the Brusho crystals and the way you've coloured his trousers.
We do like the bright red plane and the otherwise quite clean layout.
Lovely work!

Thanks you all for playing along.  Please pick up your badges from the sidebar and display them on your blogs.

Now, before I go, I've time to remind you about our current challenge which is to make your masculine style projects with an ORIENTAL theme.  This is looking to be a bit of a challenge at the moment as they are not too many submissions.  Do have a go - we look forward to seeing how you interpret ORIENTAL.

You still have plenty of time to join in - submission deadline is midnight (GMT) on Tuesday 16th February (7.00pm EDT).
