Winners announced for Decembers 'Vermeer's - Girl with the Pearl Earring' painting........

All the Design Team votes are in......................... before I announce all the winners, I would like to thank the ladies that entered this months competition. December is not the easiest month to put aside time to do a layout with all the festivities for December at a High!! I really do thank everyone for putting in such a fantastic effort.

I am really hoping that we can inspire more of the followers to have a go at the poster challenge in 2010. You dont have to be the best at scrapbooking or on a Design Team, we just want you have a go and be inspired by the monthly posters! We offer a Random Draw prize and Guest DT Raks and 'Picture This' prize so, lots of prizes for everyone to share :)

We had 13 entries for the month, 2 of which were new ladies (newbies) to the 'Girl with the Pearl Earring' challenge and I'm happy to say that everyone followed the criteria for the month and received their bonus points!! sit back, grap a cuppa, cause there are eight prizes to be awarded.

The first being our 'Picture This' winner........

When you start Stampbooking, a whole new creative world opens up to you. You'll find all
new ways to use your stamps and you'll also find a new way to scrapbook. One of the best things
about this course is that the only thing you'll need to think about for supplies is to make sure you have some photos printed.
