Winners Post for April's Challenge

Hello everyone and welcome to our Winners and Pinworthies day here at A Vintage Journey for the April "Magic of Three" Challenge.

There were so many wonderful entries showcasing your your Magic  Of Three that selecting the winners has been very difficult but as always we, the Creative Guides, really enjoy seeing your wonderful 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 Iris of Whimsy Touches, who offered up this charming springtime canvas with three eggs carefully nestled in the nest.

Congratulations, Iris.  Your prize details will be with you shortly, and we hope that you'll join us as a guest here at A Vintage Journey in the future.

Now on to our Pinworthy Creations who are as follows:
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 April challenge and for sharing your amazing creativity. I hope you are enjoying Jenny's Use A Quote Challenge this month and of course don't forget our Destination Inspiration each Monday -  as always there are some amazing goodies/techniques in the travel bag this month.

Happy Crafting Travels!
