Cottage Chic Mini - Winner Is....

Before we announce the winner of the contest, the Artsy Addicts Admins would like to say that this contest was very difficult to judge.  Every submission had a unique view on the album, and elements that each of us LOVED!  It was very difficult for us to narrow this contest down to a single winner.

After hours of  deliberation, we decided that our winner of the Cottage Chic Mini Album Contest from Marion Smith Designs, A Piece of Craft, is  Kerry Duff, Duffer 9904.  

We all felt that  Kerry's deckle edges gave the book a sophisticated chic style that kept with the spirit of Marion's design concept, but offered a unique twist.  We also loved her idea of making the journal into a perpetual calendar. Both of these elements left us pondering - "hey, why didn't I think of that!"  Here is a view of Kerry's submission.

We also wanted to showcase the other contestants.  WOW - you ladies are all super talented, and your albums blew us away.  After watching these videos you will understand why this decision was so difficult. Marion has graciously offered a prize for each contestant. Someone will contact you.

Here were the other submissions:
