With a Song in your Heart Winner and Top 3

Hello everyone, Alison here to announce the winners from my With A Song In Your Heart challenge.

Before I reveal the winners, I'd just like to say how much I loved seeing the projects created specifically for this challenge.  Sadly there were many projects which didn't qualify, having not included the song title/lyrics on their projects, but those that did get it right got it SO right... there were some truly fantastic creations to admire, as varied as the songs which inspired them.  In all honesty, I wish I could give a winners' badge to all of you that really played this challenge properly, so thank you for that.


Firstly, let's find out who was picked by to be the winner of the prize donated by April's sponsor, Tando Creative, and that was...

#22 Shari, with this brilliant take on Soft Cell's Tainted Love.

Congratulations, Shari - please send us an email to claim your prize.


Now to my winner... 

I loved the musical message tucked in the top of this altered bottle, as well as the lovely soft chalky finish and subtle colour palette.  And if you hop over to Nikki's blog, you'll see the Message in a Bottle (by The Police, of course - what a song! what a band!) is washed up in some beautifully coloured driftwood too!

Thank you, Nikki.  Do grab your Winners Badge, and we hope you'll join us for a Top Talent feature soon.


And now the Top Three, in no particular order...

#2 Shaerfchen's Kreative Welt a.k.a Dagmar 

This exploding box card is just so much fun.  There's such movement in the dynamic composition, and a fabulous retro feel, really capturing the spirit of the song.  And the song title on the wing of the flaming car tells you all you need to know - Viva Las Vegas (by the one and only Elvis Presley) indeed!

#31 magpieheaven a.k.a. Julie Ann

These fabulous Lynne Perrella clowns are only the inside story on this project - to find the song lyrics you need to see the front cover which asks "Are We A Pair?", a line from the haunting Send In the Clowns by Stephen Sondheim.  The detail and the storytelling in this bewitching creation are just wonderful.

#29 Lylac Sparkle Creations a.k.a. Deborah

I loved Deborah's thoughtful post about what inspired her in these lyrics from En Vogue's Don't Let Go.  The piece she created about a moment of losing control and falling in love is beautifully evocative, with those butterflies being released to flutter freely out in the world.  

Congratulations to each of you!  Please grab your Top 3 badge and we hope you'll wear it with pride.


There's still plenty of time to play along with Linda's Love Those Leftovers challenge. Please read the challenge guidelines and our rules carefully to be in with the chance to win a prize from our generous sponsor this month, Crafty Individuals.  There'll also be some more Sponsor Spotlight projects later in the month so you can see Crafty Individuals' gorgeous products in action.

Don't forget there'll also be some more Birthday Quiz posts along shortly, so keep an eye out to find out more about each of the members of the Design Team.  

See you soon!
