She also wanted to share another project. This project came about due to an online discussion Lizzie was having with another respected Queensland Aussie Stamper/Scrapper: Deslie Gordon, who challenged me to do UTEE collage projects. This was the result:Lizzie also wanted to share an idea with us all: "Keep the Ferrero Rocher Chocolate acrylic/plastic boxes… they are perfect to store your tools, materials or even the perfect size for photos too! "

Anyway, as mentioned in my original post, I wanted to use the Random site to determine the winners. I believe it is fair to give both beginning scrappers and more experienced artists the chance to win. Since we had 15 layouts for the PageMaps sketch competition, the winner had to be between # 1 and # 15. As you can see below the winner is # 6, which is Cora! Congratulations, Cora! Please email me with your postal address, so I can post your parcel to you!
Then there is the other competition 'Our favourite attitute should be gratitude' ... Since I made the first comment myself, the winner had to be chosen between # 2 and # 14. The site chose # 7 as the winner, which is Karen! She nominated her good friend Anne Rayner to receive the prize. Karen, please contact me with her postal address too!
