Huge CONGRATULATIONS to all three winners. All seven contestants are worthy of accolades! You ALL did wonderfully well. Your kits are all fantastic!

Wow......this is amazing!!!

I skipped (yes skipped) out back to tell hubby and he says, "That's great, baby!" (which I think translates into...."Perhaps now you can go to the grocery store?")

This has been an AMAZING ride and to be amongst such great company! Group hug to all of my fellow designers and to everyone that hung out and supported all of us for 4 weeks! You guys are awesome!!!!

Congratulations to Manuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu and Jen and everyone in Round 4!!!!

Super big hugs to the inStudio Team.....you all are wonderful and I'm looking forward to coming on board!!!!

And a big, big round of applause for each contestant, these kits were all SO good, I wish we could take you all! I've bookmarked you guys, I'll be that sneaky stalker chick that follows you around :l You ALL were amazing, not just in your designing talent, but in your willingness to help each other out, the friendly banter that's been exchanged and your overall good sportsmanship!! I really do hope you all come back to keep in touch, I'm going to miss this terribly! It's always a big "Whew!" when the contest is over, but, in the same sense, there's a big "sigh!" that all the fun has to end! Best of luck to you all for the future! You are one wonderful group of ladies! :XX

09-29-2012, 09:23 AM
Congrats Jill! You did amazingly well and I can't wait to see you join our team. A huge congrats to Manu and Jen too! How exciting :-)

this has been one awesome competition and the entries have been absolutely gorgeous! *bows down* to all who participated, I'm not sure if I would have the stamina to produce so many fabulous designs in such a short time.

09-29-2012, 09:27 AM
Congratulations Jill! You deserve it GF! It will be so fun seeing you here among the designers at theStudio. I know you're excited because Toiny posted the winners and 2 minutes later you were there! You must have had to have a potty break for it to have taken 2 minutes for you to answer ROFL!

Congratulations to Manu and Jen too! You both deserve it too! Enjoy your time here! But first, relax and go play for a few days as I know it has been sooo nerve wracking on you both.

Above all, congratulations to everyone who participated. It is tough to put yourself out there in a competition like this one. You stepped up to the plate and that took courage and what we call down in the South "grit". You inspired me and no doubt many others to stretch and reach outside the box. You are all true hero-ettes!

09-29-2012, 09:29 AM
Congratulations, Jill!!

Thanks to Toniy and the gang here at the Studio for sponsoring such a wonderful challenge. Wish everyone could be added to the team here as the kits have been awesome.

Never look back, your future is always in front of you :)
