  55. Thanks Lulupu for the blog hop and the yummy goods on offer. Also i d like to say thanks to the wonderful DTs for their tutorials and inspirations. Love ur challenges and ur store products.... Thanks again,,, i hav finished all steps and now fingers crossed

  56. Just entered the challenge. Wonderful challenge anf really fab inspiration from the DT!

  57. Are you aware that your winner is posting on a blog using 2 layouts she stole from someone else and the photo used is also that other persons daughter, certainly no relation to her, she has said she won this competition how can someone stoop so low and it reflects on your site as well, I would like to think you would leave this notice up as a warning for future poachers of scrapook artists but am sure you will delete it.

  58. Luz Maria is an author of two projects!
