Paper Stash - Pinworthy Choices and Tag Friday Winner

Hello - S@ndy here with you today to announce our three Pinworthy winners for our Paper Stash challenge last month.  We had some fabulous entries, and we thank you all for joining in and sharing your creative adventures with us.

Selecting our pinworthies is difficult for the Creative Guides, and  narrowing it down to just three winners is a task taken seriously. So after much deliberation here are the three projects which really caught the eye of the Creative Guides:

In no particular order:

Congratulations to our winners - we will be in touch shortly with your badges and your creations will be pinned to our Pinterest boards.
Thanks once again to all of you who joined in the Paper Stash challenge. We hope you will join us this month for Julia's challenge Star Light Star Bright. All the Challenge details and an inspirational gallery of projects created by the Creative Guides can be located here.

Now for those of you who submitted a tag for our Tag Friday, we have a winner.  
That winner is:

Have a wonderful holiday season and happy crafting!
