Before I get to announcing the winners I want to say that this has been an incredible experience for me. I have had such an amazing time and have learned so much (which you’ll hear more about at a later date in my interview)… Without the support of my mother-in-law (the challenge giver), the entrants, the judges, and the community, these challenges would not have been the fun they were – thanks to you all! Tonight I will announce the third, second and grand prize winners. I will announce winners of the Random Prizes (shown below) throughout the weekend (I still have to take pictures of my girls drawing the names…) so if you don’t win the Grand Prize don’t loose hope! Sponsors for the Random Prizes: Giveaway 1: Karol from FabricCandy is donating a set of Five Fat Quarters of the Ava Rose Collection. Giveaway 2: RainbowFabrics is Donating $25 to her etsy shop. And I did a little ‘shopping’ myself to create some more fantastic prizes!
