It's Magic Winner and Top 3

Hi everyone!

Kerstin here to bring you the Winner and Top 3 from my 'It's magic' Challenge.

Wow! I was really blown away by the high quality of the projects entered to our November challenge!
Sadly there were rather few entries, but those were really creative and I loved the imaginativeness, the skill, the beautiful nature images and stories you all shared with us! So huge thanks to all those who stepped out of their comfort zones and played with us last month!

  First let's announce the randomly drawn winner of the prize donated by our wonderful sponsor this month Nicecrane Designs:

And the winner is.......

No 7 - Lys

Even though there were just few entries picking my winner and Top3 wasn't easy.
And the one and only winner is...

                                                                   Bonnie McLain

Not only was I deeply impressed by her neologism "Magestic" but also her blog post and description. She definitely has put her whole heart and soul into her beautiful creation! The majestic, warm autumn colours she used and all the various details and textures she has incorporated mirror her deep love and affection for nature. Also there is this wonderful peace and tranquility to her project, which I really think is what makes it so magical! 

Congratulations Bonnie! You have just become our first ever Gold Winner!

                                                    Top 3 (in no particular order)

The wonderful picture Evelyn used shows that the magic of nature already shows with the tiniest droplet of water! I love how she incorporated the beautiful photograph and how the details on her LO help blend it all together. Her idea of creating drops with the hot glue gun is genius! And I love the vintage look she has achieved!

A really special capture of a wonderful nature moment, framed by magical flowers! I adore how Mona combined the tender colours and the stencilled texture from the background!

 Koala in Cape Otway

I find Koalas fascinating too and can see why we all love them so much. With Jan's creation I especially admire the choice of colour which creates a tropical feel in a way. The layering with die cuts done in good old scrapbook style and the special effects used on this LO are absolutely stunning!

My sincere congrats to all of our winners, but really you are all winners for me, so thanks again for playing along!!


You could be here next month as our winner or Top 3 - Just hop over to Alison's 'Have yourself a merry LITTLE Christmas' challenge and have a go!
