Get Sentimental Pinworthies

Hello!  Nikki here to share our Pinworthy choices with you from our challenge last month where we asked you to 'Get Sentimental'.  Thank you to everyone for the wonderful, diverse creations which made our job of picking just three very difficult.

It was wonderful to see how everyone used their 'sentiments' in such creative ways. The three selected pinworthies really matched their artwork to their words. In no particular order this months pinworthies are:

#11 Preeti 
A stunning journal page full of depth.

#12 Jo
A wonderful celebration of creativity and an event Jo attended.

#22 Amanda
A fabulously textured, layered triptych.

Congratulations to you all, your Pinworthy badges will be on their way to you shortly and your creations will be pinned to our Pinworthies board on Pinterest.

This month's challenge 'How can you resist' started last Friday and we look forward to seeing more creativity.

Nikki and the Creative Guides xx
