Pinworthy Winners for our March Celebration challenge.

Hello Everyone.
We really enjoyed looking through all the birthday celebration winners projects, thank you to everyone who joined in we so appreciate the entries you all make. Thank you also for all birthday wishes you left for us on your posts.

So onto the three Pinworthy projects chosen by the Creative Guides and myself and you certainly made it difficult to narrow it down to just three. But after long deliberations (both from the CGs and me too) these three came out top of the lists and in numerical order they are -

#4  Lynn - Experiments in Paper

Wow what a way to celebrate nature and your brother's love of entymology but yes of course finishing the marathon line of finishing this beautiful set of albums. Well done Lynn.

#5 Shraddha - Creatif Edges

Shraddha your altered art candle stand is a wonderful celebration of mixed media, it's beautiful.

#10 Tracey - New Beginnings

Tracey I definitely think this is a celebration of the little things we have and hold so dear in our supplies. It's gorgeous.

Thank you ladies for sharing your wonderful projects with us they are amazing and have helped us celebrate our 6th birthday in style. Congratulations on being chosen the winners for March and we will be in touch very soon with your very well deserved Pinworthy Badges very soon. 

Before I go I would like to link back to our challenge post for April and ask you to share a gelli plate project. It's a great opportunity to have some fun with the plates and produce something to share with us all. If you pop to the post you will also see some fabulous and inspirational projects from the Creative Guides and a linky for you to add your project to. We hope you will join us and have a go at winning one of our Pinworthy badges for 2020.

Here in the southern part of the UK we have had a fabulous sunny week with some really high summer temperatures, however we do hope that wherever you are in the world with the Easter weekend and extra holiday days you will still observe the rules your country have set for dealing with, managing and hopefully ending this pandemic of the coronavirus. Apart from dropping some shopping over to my daughter's door step that I had delivered with my shopping delivery this week and going out to the front of the house to clap for the NHS and all other fantastic workers helping us to keep safe and alive I have not ventured outside of my house and garden for 3 weeks and I know many of you have been on lockdown for longer than that.
Please stay safe, stay home, protect all the front line people working hard for us and save lives.

hugs Brenda and the Creative Guides. xxx
