Hello friends of Our Creative Corner. Thanks so much for dropping by today to see who we have chosen for the winners of our July challenge Captured Memories. We had 51 sensational entries into our challenge, each and every one special in its own way. We were so inspired by your work and we do thank you most sincerely for playing along with our challenge!
It's always a challenge for us to pick a winner, visiting blogs numerous times in an effort to narrow down the field of favorites. Having gone through that process with the July entries, we have now come up with our overall winner and top three favorites.
Our July Captured Memories challenge winner is -
No. 36 - Susan Janicula - Klistersoster
Susan's entry is an altered book. I really love how she treated the cover and what a wonderful photograph she used on it. Such beautiful vintage hues and fabulous texture!
Just look at the memories she has captured inside. Such a sweet little basket and picket fence. And the back cover is equally as wonderful. Great work, Susan, and a huge congratulations on being our July winner. We will look forward to getting to know you better in an upcoming Top Talent feature post.
Top 3 (in no particular order):
No. 6 Rita - RMG Creations
Rita created a chunky ATC just loaded with seaside goodies reminiscent of her childhood visits to the sea. How wonderful that she included a photo of her brother as a child. What an awesome way to capture and display such fond memories!
No. 32 Julie Ann Lee - Magpieheaven
I just loved the shabby chic style beauty of this card that Julie Ann created as a 45th anniversary card. Such beautiful colors and laces and wonderful vintage photographs on the outside and when you peek inside it's personalized with a photo of the anniversary couple. I can just imagine the delight with which this card was received.
No. 35 Yvonne Garner - Journey into Artistry
Yvonne has created a wonderful vintage style card with a lovely stamped, stenciled and tinted background. I love that sweet vintage photograph she has included and the charming seaside theme of the card. The tiny bottle of sand is such a fun embellishment!
