Hi all,

It is always hard to post the winners list. This week it's especially tough. There is something about each of your LO's that tugs at my heart strings. I'm very thankful for my Design & Admin team in helping me decide. No one had an easy time. Huge kudo's to all of you for creating such beautiful, poignant layouts.

This weeks winners all move on to Round 2. Week 2's assignment will be posted early Monday morning (in this little forum). All LO's will be due by Midnight (EST) on Thursday. You will be PM'd the links to the kit.

Huge Congratulations to:

Thank you to everyone for the awesome comments - they were very encouraging:)
Congrats to those going to round two - I'm looking forward to this next challenge!

I'm surprised and grateful that my ATC about K-9 Officer Bosco was one of the layouts chosen as a winner of week one. I have never done anything like this before and have no idea what the criteria used by the judges is, so I consider myself very lucky. As an animal lover, Bosco's was a story that touched my heart on many levels. I was one of hundreds who contributed money towards his care at The Ohio State University Veterinary Hospital. We are so lucky in Columbus, Ohio to have two such remarkable hospitals to care for our furry friends. I'm looking forward to week two's challenge. Congratulations to all of the other week one winners, and to everyone who contributed amazing and touching layouts for this challenge.

Thank you so much for allowing me to move on in the contest. I am incredibly delighted - and surprised! There are so many wonderful layouts.

:(( I'm so happy that I get to play another round with everyone!

It had to have been a very difficult decision to go through all those fabulous layouts and choose only about half of the entries to move onto to Round 2; thanks for including me in your choices! :XX

I'm looking forward to the next assignment. :DD

Last week was INSANE for me. I had to get my kids ready to go to their father's, 16 hours away, for the summer and then drive up halfway to pass them off. There were so many wonderful LOs created for the challenge, and I'm going to be going to the gallery to leave some belated love today. It's an honor for my LO to have been selected along with so many other beautiful and touching LOs.

I am finally reading through all the of this thread as I (not-so) patiently await the announcement of this week's winners. I haven't digi scrapped but for a few months, and don't design, so I am utterly amazed at being considered anyone's equal in this process. The layouts are awesome, definitely inspiring both in the stories and in the layouts themselves. Thanks for including me!! Ok..back to the nail biting of week 2 results.... lol
