Hi Everyone! The votes are in and I can now announce our winners for the month. Thankyou to all the ladies that participated, I loved looking through all the entries in the one blog. You have all done an outstanding Job :)
What a great start to the year :)

The 'Curators Choice Award'
goes to
Helene Bogren

with her entry 

'Tea Party'

Reason: This layout appealed to me with the blended color scheme and masking. I loved the large cut out tea pot and sugar bowl, perfect elements for the page. I also loved how Helene made the little canopy over the photo imitating the 'Luncheon of the Boating Party' painting.  This is Helene's second ever entry at ARTastic and she also came a close second to Lizzy Crust in the voting. Well done Helene!!! You have a won a 'Butterfly Pack" for your creative efforts :)
