April Showers Bring May Flowers Winners

Hello Everyone! It's me Shari, and I'm back to announce the winners from my April Showers Bring May Flowers challenge. 

Thank You All so much for joining in last month--There were a total of 102 entries and ya'll did not make this an easy task to have to choose winners!  Oh No!  Not easy at all!   

There were cards, art journal pages, altered and transformed pieces, a virtual cavalcade of creative genius!  I'm completely awed by the range of creations--Thank You again! 

Now, on to the FUN stuff!!  I'll start with the random draw for the Wonderful prize package donated by challenge Sponsor--

Ryn Tanaka is awarding this winner with her Water Effects Stamps and 3 of her stencils!  A package worth $50!!  

YAY! Congratulations to Joanna - Under a Creative Spell! Joanna, we've given Ryn your details and you'll be hearing from her soon!! Congrats & Enjoy your goodies!  Maybe we'll see what you create with them in a future challenge?

Oh boy--the suspense is killing me!!  Here I go with my overall April Showers Bring May Flowers Top Winner and Top 3....

My Top Winner is--

Joi completely encompassed the spirit of the challenge theme in these GORGEOUS art journal pages!  I pretty much love every detail of these pages--it's that simple--I fell in creative love at first sight! 
Joi, Congratulations & Thank You for joining in my challenge--You will have your own Top Talent Spotlight feature with us here at Our Creative Corner in the near future!!

Now for my Top 3 in no particular order--And again, to narrow down 102 participants to my favorite Top 3--no easy feat, with all of the wonderful creations you all brought over! 

Jane created this beautiful framed memory on canvas for her son as a gift.  The backstory of the photo, the beautiful forest of Blue Bells, the delightful rustic feel of her stenciled background--Love It!! I bet Jane's son loved it, too!!   

Sam created two art journal pages that are truly beautiful in their simplicity.  I love the background, the stenciled dots remind me of great big rain drops and those bright red poppies--Lovely! Simply Lovely!! 

Yulianna created this stunning journal and made a matching gift bag & tag for it as well and not just one gift set, but 2!  I actually love them both!!  The irises in this gift set remind me of the wild irises that grow along the riverbank where I live--wild and beautiful and natural show stoppers!! 

Jane, Sam & Yulianna--As my Top 3 Winners, I'll be sending you your 'Our Creative Corner Top 3' Blog Badges shortly!  Keep on the look-out for that in your emails and wear them on your blogs proudly!!

We just began our June Challenge--What Makes You Smile--being hosted by my talented OCC Design Teammate Jan of Scrapbooking From The Attic.  Come on over with the creations that make you smile, for an opportunity to smile even more, with the chance of winning our Tando Creative random prize package, Jan's Top Talent Winner or one of Jan's Top 3!!  All smile generators, guaranteed!! 

Hope to see you there!!
