Design Team Picks for Challenge 9

Hello Stampers!

It is time to announce the Design Team Favorite Picks for our week 9 challenge. This challenge was a color challenge of Pink, Grey & Black.

Here are the Winners....


Lydia's adorable lay-out was chosen as the favorite of 3 of our Design Team Members!
Ceal, Jackie and Holly!

Jackie said "I like her layout because it has so much detail that she put into this layout. Her colors really rock, they don’t over power the picture (very soft palette) which makes you really drawn to the picture."



This was my favorite pick. I absolutely adore Arielle's pink gingham piggy! I love the simple design that still packs a big wow factor. It just makes me smile :)

Congratulations ladies! Be sure to grab your Design Team Favorite Picks Badge for your blog!

Thanks to everyone that played! We have a lot of awesome entries and it makes it very hard to pick!
