Last weekend's special event had a nice turnout of members stopping by or playing all day, celebrating the 1,000+ members at the FB group. One of the highlights of the event was the unveiling of the special edition freebie "Dandelion Sprite" (If you haven't caught her yet, you can find her at the link.) Lots of downloads of this baby during the event and afterwards. ^_^ As part of our celebration, a Special Flash Contest was added for a chance for members to enter creations with the freebie sprite digi. This contest was only open for a week, but we saw a good number of lovely entries.
Don't you just love it when you get a chance to get a freebie, which also gives you an opportunity to get even more freebies? Well, this quick contest was just exactly that! The contest winner will receive $20 USD worth of digis (plus a blog badge) AND every submission gets showcased today (which, of course, comes with a blog badge and a digi of choice)! It's a win-win-win situation, if you will.
The judging for contest/challenge is always difficult, comparing apples and oranges. I loved every single one of the submissions to this contest. Thank you, everyone, for participating with such beautiful creations!
The winning piece I chose is by Catherine Lavoine. I fell in love with her use of kraft paper and the clean-and-simple presentation, which really speak for the innocent and unpretentious dandelion. The understated simple charm is irresistible! Congratulations, Catherine!
