Our apologies for the delay on this, but with all the CHA New Releases as well as Maria's pregnancy, we've been tied up recently :) It also took us a while because it was a very tough decision with so many great submissions. We narrowed it down to 2 people very quickly but we had a tough time deciding between those two. Because of that, we've decided to offer a 2nd place prize of a $25 gift certificate in addition to the $50 grand prize! So without further ado, the grand prize of a $50 StopAndScrap.com Gift Certificate goes to Michele Skinner for her My Mind's Eye The Spider's Web shadowbox! We loved the way she used almost every piece of the collection without needing any outside items, all while still making the project really pop. Here are a few images:
The other contestant that just as easily could have won but came just a tad short was the My Mind's Eye Ooh La La "For Him" page by Julie Bonner! She will be receiving a $25 gift certificate for finishing in 2nd.
We also have one more announcement - besides these two, we had so many other great submissions that could have won that we've decided to offer all of the other 8 contestants a $10 gift certificate as a consolation prize! You all did a great job and we wanted to thank you for making our first design contest such a success! Thanks everybody for participating and we can't wait to do another one!
