What can we say?  This challenge was so fun!  Every week you link up so many creative projects–but this week was particularly impressive.  You found so many beautiful ways to welcome Spring.

Joining us this week from Sugar Bee Crafts is Mandy, our guest judge for the Spring Challenge.  She had a great time visiting all of your links.  This is what Mandy told us about what she saw:

Your readers are amazingly talented!!!  I loved seeing how diverse everyone’s ideas were on the topic of Spring.  Something about Spring must bring out the “wreathmaking” in people–there were a ton of cute wreaths!  You should do a whole challenge on wreaths–wouldn’t that be fun?!?!

It would be, Mandy!  Check out the Challenge Calendar on the left sidebar….we have a Wreath Week coming up.
