OMG the voting was grueling!!  

We had some really outstanding and jaw dropping entries for January's challenge.  We want to thank every one of you for playing along.  We hope that you will play along with us again. :)

Here are our winners:

Niesia is our 1st place Scarlet Siren winner!!  

Here, in her words, is a description of her winning entry:
Here is my entry for this month’s challenge. I used 101-Gesso technique on the background. I stamped the snowflakes with gesso and I applied the glitter to it before it dried. The effect is very subtle but stunning. I don’t know if the picture can show it well.

My son Thomas (4 ½ yrs old) took this picture of his brother – Michael (3) looking out the window daydreaming. The title is attached to the tag hidden behind, describing the whole story behind this photo.

Well, we think Thomas has a future in photography!  Here is her beautiful entry:

This was the first time our next winner had entered our challenge and we were all so happy to see her beautiful entry.

Congratulations Amarylis!!!  She is our 2nd place 
Bad Ass Blue Betty winner!!!

Here is a little bit from Amarylis about her entry:
I used Robin's Water Distressing Tutorial for my background papers. I love to water distress on my layouts since it gives them a lot of depth! I also used Lisa Gregory's Puffed Rose Flower Tutorial for my two blue roses.

I had a lot of fun working on this layout and used a lot of techniques on it and I can honestly say that I love how it turned out!

It looks like you had fun!  It is gorgeous!!  Click here to go to Amarylis' blog.

Congratulations ladies!!  We looks forward to seeing more entries from you!!
