Well done everyone. If all these winners could please email me at jjjustjane@bigpond.com with your postal details I will see your prize gets out to you.

AND NOW -  Some more October inspiration from our remaining creative team members ...
This memory jar came about when I spied a tiny nest that had been left on the ground at our place. It contained wool from my jumper, some of my hair and lots of my dogs. We leave little bird treats with these sorts of goodies out for them.

I added in some wooden stems and chipboard feathers.

I used a wooden camera and wooden person on my layout.

I have used bark from a birch tree and peacock feathers to create a new background for the photo of my daughter from when we visited Dairy Farm in Cornwall last year. The paper has wood panels pattern with birds and flowers so I have both real and fake wood and feathers on this page.
Using a wood veneer feather.
We'd love to see your interpretations of this inspiration this month - your project only has to include some wood OR feathers and these can be in any form.  Think wood veneer frames, arrows, speech bubbles, or use patterned paper in this theme - you could even just focus on outdoor photographs which contain trees ;)  
 Remember we happily accept all forms of paper crafting for your entry including digital and encourage international submissions.  All we ask is that you create an original entry for our challenge although you are most welcome to combine with a sketch and/or colour challenge if you wish.  You have until 11.55pm on the last day of the month to submit your entry.

Next week we will be introducing you to the August winner of our guest designer spot, Helena Reinedahl.
Don't forget - Each month we will be selecting someone from amongst our entries to be a guest designer for one of our upcoming challenges - it could be you!!
Also stayed tuned for some exciting news concerning 2014 - details end of next week.
