Cogs, Gears and Textures Pinworthies

Hi everyone, 
Ann here to announce our Pinworthy winners for September's 
Cogs, Gears and Textures challenge. As usual we had many fabulous entries and we want to thank each and every one of you for taking the time to enter our challenge. It is so hard to narrow our winners down to just three, but needs must, so after due consideration, these are the entries the creative guides have chosen in no particular order:

So once again, thank you to all of you who entered our challenge and shared your creativity and congratulations to our winners. 

I will send you your pinworthy badges shortly. Our latest challenge Numbers is in full swing at the moment, so we hope you will all join us for that one too, and all the challenge details and an inspirational gallery of projects created by some of our talented Creative Guides can be located here. Can't wait to see what you create. Of course don't forget to come back next week to see Annie's tutorial for her entry to that challenge!

Meanwhile, happy crafting and thank you for joining us here today! 
Ann and the Creative Guides
