Hi everyone! Thanks so much for your patience in announcing the winners for last month's challenge. We take voting pretty seriously here and as we are a pretty big Design Team it takes a while for everyone to get their votes in. Just so you know, there is about 12+ Design Team members that vote every time just to make it fair and produce a variety of winners with different styles , from different countries etc..

So for this month, the clear winner from all 94 entries in October was voted on by 12 Design Team members   and the score was very high!
