December 15th challenge **WINNERS**

Hi everyone. Its time to announce the winners of our last challenge. Thank you all for playing along during the busiest and craziest time of the year. It was wonderful and nothing short of interesting reading your journalling about how you all spend Christmas time. 

We saw some stunning entries but there can only be one winner as hard as that truly is. Before I announce the winner there is something important I need to remind everyone. 

**IMPORTANT NOTE:   Remember that journalling is part of the requirements at Once Upon A..Sketch and it must be included on your layout in order for it to be a winner , random winner or a featured project. If your journalling is hidden please make sure you tell us WHERE it is hidden and that it is in fact hidden. We unfortunately had to overlook many beautiful entries because they included NO journalling. Please remember that a quote is ONLY to be used on cards or altered projects and NOT on layouts as it does not count as your own journalling ***

Now without further delay our winner from the last challenge is..

Well done Kay. Your layout is simply stunning. The way you matted the photo and the creative way you used the corner punches, as well as the all the gorgeous pop of colour all over your page made this a winning layout!! You have won 2 paper collections from Les Papiers De Pandore. Could you please email Patti at to claim your prize? Don't forget to grab your winners badge from the left sidebar of the blog.
