There will be no competition for July and August 2011 ...

As the title says, there will be no sketch competition for July and August 2011. Our Summer holidays will start in a week and therefore I decided to not have a sketch competition for the next two months. See you all in September!

The winner for June 2011 is ...

Jolanda from the UK! Congratulations!

Caroline Hackney from Texas made this layout. This is what she wrote:

"I saw your post on FB saying that the first layout had "finally arrived" which got me into gear for doing mine! :) You might have seen this photo already on my Facebook page... it's one of my favourite pictures of myself because (as the title says) I look utterly carefree. I wish I felt like that more! Now there's a challenge for me and prayer... Anyway, this picture was taken last Spring in the Texas Hill Country. These flowers were in a meadow in front of a church and it really was quite spectacular. We took a LOT of photos!"
