SEPTEMBER IS HERE!!!
September has arrived with a bang, more rain, Kate and William are expecting again, an election coming up, the block is in uproar over the twins, and Tarzan got voted off on Australian Survivor, whew and its only a few days in. This has got to have been the craziest year ever, it just seems to have flown so fast. I feel like it will be Christmas before I know it, and I will be organising all the games and food again.
We have spent the last few weeks designing new kits, and we will be releasing these over the next month as we gear up for Wellington Paper Arts. We also have some awesome classes before Christmas, and these will be released as soon as we have pictures, but the dates have been added to the schedule below.
We have drawn the winners of our competition that we ran with our quote sheets. Congratulations to you all and thank you to everyone who entered - it was an incredibly hard job deciding the top three so we decided to give out two highly commended awards as well!! It took us a while to sort through the fabulous entries.
The winners are....... 1st place - Carol Feierabend - Has Won a $200 Prize Pack of Chipboard MDF and Quote Sheets 2nd Place - Elizabeth Harris - Has Won a $100 Prize Pack of Chipboard MDF and Quote Sheets 3rd place - Fiona Angus - Has Won a $50 Prize Pack of Chipboard MDF and Quote Sheets Highly Commended Designs - Lisa Berridge & Yvonne O'Loughlin - both of whom get 5 Quote Sheets each.
