Winner of Tadema's 'A Greek Woman'.............

Thankyou to everyone who entered this months challenge, we had 16 entries, which was a fantastic effort, the range of layouts was interesting and diverse, and I loved seeing what everyone produced this month using 'A Greek woman' for inspiration.

I hope you all enjoyed the 'A greek woman' challenge and look forward to you all playing along again in December......... :)

It was a difficult decision this month for the voting, I took a couple of days looking at each entry before I could make a solid decision and the DT also took time with their voting. To vote we used the 1st=3pt, 2nd= 2pt and 3rd = 1pt system!!

so this is what we have all come up with ...........
