Challenged by ...{France Papillon} & Winners

1. And the winners are...
Sue Carrington shared with us another series of beautiful posts last week. It's always sad to say goodbye to a designer as their semester comes to a close. We have met so many gorgeously talented guests this past semester, and they have certainly spoiled us with their beautiful and inspiring work.

Sue, we all thank you so much for the fantastic ideas you have explained so well, and made so achievable. I'm sure we will see you pop back again from time to time in the future!

We have 3 draws tonight...

Random winner #1 from the First Challenge draw (every single entry linked, including multiple entries) is: Sam

Congratulations, you have won a PaperArtsy A5 stamp of your choice. 

Random winner #2  from the Second Challenge draw, (only one entry per name) is: Lucy

Congratulations, you have won a PaperArtsy A5 stamp of your choice. 

The special PaperArtsy {10th Birthday} Draw 
3 winners each receive a set of the 3 new minis used by Sue in her birthday post are:
Winner 1: Julie Ann Lee
Winner 2: Lin
Winner 3:Trish T

Congratulations, you have each won a set of brand new minis: MN94, MN95, MN96 These are so new they have only been online since Thursday!

2. The week ahead...
Coming up in the week ahead we welcome back from Belgium, France Papillon. France has a way of coming up with unusual methods to distress all kinds of objects, and it's been a real pleasure to have an international Guest come and visit this last semester.

Since we last saw France, here are some of the gorgeous things that she has been up to on her blog. 

Well, not only has she been creating beautiful journals, as you might have come to expect... 

...but she has a very moving story here about how she has brought her gorgeous horses home to the brand new stables they have built specially for them. Oh, and she has had her 12 wedding anniversary! Congratulations France, what an amazing time for you!

3. Challenged by....{France Papillon}
I do hope that you will find time to test out your interpretation of France's ideas this week, and this is the place where you can share that creative spark with us all, and enter the weekly challenge. By uploading a link to your art below, from your blog, or Flickr account, or Pinterest page and so forth, you will go in the draw this time next week to win some PA goodies! Just make sure you entry is linked by noon GMT Sunday August 18th.

As you know, the winners will be announced this time next week!
