We Have a Winner

When I started the sketch challenge, I knew for sure that I wanted to actually chose the one I liked best. I didn't want it to be just a random number picked out by a computer, I mean, where's the fun in that? However, now I know the reason why most sites do the random number thing - it is sooooooo hard picking a favourite. I have been agonising for days, I have even got Prince Charming and the children to choose theirs to see if we all came up with the same one - we didn't!!

Anyway, I have stuck to my guns and not gone the random number route and have finally come up with a winner. For some reason I kept coming back to Jenny's layout - I just love it. I love the colours, I love the photo, I love the stars - I just think it is really fab. So Jenny, congratulations, please could you send me an email with your address so that I can get the goodies out to you.

But hold on, I am not done. I have decided that really everyone should get a little something, my way of saying thank you for entering the first sketch challenge and for uploading your layouts. So I am offering 20% off any future Magpie Club kit. Just buy it the normal way, then send me an email and I will refund you the 20%. (As you can see, I haven't worked out how to use special codes or coupons on paypal yet - I am a novice). Thank you so much for entering, I would also like to thank Kim, Breann and Natacha whose layouts I didn't manage to showcase on my blog, you can check them out though on the Mr Linky Link.

Here is Jenny's Layout- you've gotta love it.

I have also got to show you a layout done by Piradee, (our new member of the design team). This is her first layout using the November Main Kit - it is so amazing that I am not sure I am going to be putting my layouts on the website anymore!!). We love you Piradee and can't wait to see the wonderful things you do with the kits.

So, all that is left is for me to wish everyone a very Happy Halloween. May it be full of small children, running round the house in the wee hours of the morning due to the extreme sugar overload but hey, at least we all get an extra hour in bed!! Chance would be a fine thing!! Have a good one.


  1. Congrats, Jenny! Those colors ARE great :)

  2. Thank you so much for giving us all a prize! And I loved Jennys LO, it looks great!!

    I´m so sad I missed out on the November kit, when did you put it up for sale? I had decided to splurge on shipping fees and taxes and get that kit.. Is it possible to sign up for the December kit now?

    Tara - you sold out of the main kit already! Congrats! I hesitated....was getting ready for a quick weekend mountain getaway and lost out wah! Will have to catch you another month! Thanks for the percentage dicount!

  9. I am so sorry the November kits sold out so quickly, it took me by surprise too. It is my pleasure to offer the 20% off, I loved all the layouts and it was far too tricky picking just one winner.
