Winners and Pinworthies of the February Challenge : Words That Are Special

Hello everyone and welcome to our Winners and Pinworthies day here at A Vintage Journey for the February "Words That Are Special" Challenge.

There were so many wonderful entries showcasing your special words that selecting the winners has been very difficult but as always we really enjoy seeing your creative projects and every entry was special and a winner in its own way.


To start us off today, here is today's winner drawn by the Random Generator...

That's #70, Neha of Happiness Handcrafted, with this wonderful dimensional tag.

Congratulations, Neha!  You'll receive your prize shortly, and we hope you'll join us on the journey as a Guest Creative Guide in the future.


And now for the Pinworthies (in no particular order!) chosen by myself and my fellow
 Creative Guides

Kasia : Papierowy Wymiar

#54 Changes, Chances, Choices
I loved the simplicity of Kasia's chosen words on three fabulously
 vintage, textured mixed media tags.

Jan : Scrapbooking from the Attic

#84 Dreamer
Fabulous shabby vintage layers from Jan evoking the single
word "Dreamer"

Zelda  : Out of Africa Creations

#83 Africa Smiled
Amazingly creative use of a poem
very special to Zelda.

I do hope you will take the time to visit the individual blogs to see more details of
these wonderful projects.

Congratulations to all three of you! Your Pinworthy Badges will be on their way to you shortly and we hope you will join us here as Guest Creative Guides at some point in the future.

Many thanks again to all of you who joined in with the February challenge and for sharing your amazing creativity. I hope you are enjoying Brenda's All Aboard : Happy Birthday Challenge this month and of course don't forget our Destination Inspiration each Monday - there are some amazing goodies in the travel bag this month.

Happy crafting travels!
Jennie and the Creative Guides
