WINNERS ANNOUNCED - and some more love! a fabulous first challenge of the year! Thanks to all the submitters - there are some high quality entries and you guys are making it harder and harder to pick winners. Did you know that sometimes we have to revert to picking them from a hat? That just adds to the fun. Have you checked out the entries yet? If not be sure to click here. And because we want to share the love, we thought we would run a Comment Competition. People seem to be motivated by winning crafty!

Keep reading to find out how to win that prize!! But for now here are the winners:

Overall Challenge Winner
Congrats to Rosemary Scott with this LOVE-LY layout! Rosemary has created a perfectly pleasing layout using Kaisercraft's Secret Admirer range (it's personally one of my all-time favourites from them). I love everything about the layout - the balance of the design, the fabulous photo of her brother (we all love black and white photos - and brothers), her use of wooden flourishes and flowers. DELICIOUS!!

Sketch WinnerCongrats to Yoko Houthuijzen! We LOVED this take on the sketch that was supplied by Sketches in Thyme.
Yoko writes: ". I''m into patch work hearts this month. Used Kaisercraft Timeless Paper Pad and Tim Holtz Distress Ink." We loved the simplicity of the design, the fun title and photos and the interesting addition of the patchworked heart.


First Time Entrant Winner
Congrats to Cherry Thelmo-Fernandez! We loved the idea of a 10-year wedding album - and congrats on the anniversary! This Funky Hearts album from Kaisercraft is the perfect gift and the mix of red, white and black is so striking. Cheery must have spent ages cutting the paper around the scallop edges. Well done for such a tidy job!

 (If you want to be eligible for the first-time entrant prize, then please state first-time entrant in the comment section when you submit)

Share the Love Prize
There is one more prize to be won. It's the commenting prize. Head to the website gallery and for every comment you make on someone's February entry, we'll pop you in the draw to win a $30 "Love" pack. We'll make up a fabulous pack of newly released Love themed papers and embellies. You have until midnight Friday 8th of March to make the comments to be in the draw - that's a week away - but don't forget!

Yet more love! 40th Anniversary celebrations!
Thanks everyone who followed along and encourage me to get the layout photo board completed for my Mum and Dad's 40th anniversary. It was a challenge to complete 18 layouts in TWO days. Yes Last-Minute-Lizzie was at it again! But I seem to work well under pressure. Each layout took 40 minutes - that included picking the papers, creating the layout, and then cleaning up, having a 5 minute water break before getting back into it again... Phew! Anyway, the guests loved it and so did Mum and Dad. I'll be popping them in an album for them soon (after displaying them in the shop for a little longer).

Here are some collages of the completed layouts:

Don't forget to check back into tomorrow for the new monthly challenge and theme!!
