Hey ladies!
I was overwhelmed at the response I got when I put out the call for a "Junkie" design team. We are honored that so many of you tried out. Thanks to everyone that put so much time into designing your pages. To mix black & white pictures together with colored pictures was surely a challenge. You totally out did yourselves! Thank the Lord in heaven that I did not have to judge. The prior Memory Maker Master that judged spent a ton of time at the store taking notes on each layout and on all the details and criteria. My photographer judge was glad to see each layout and the way her kids pictures were designed on the pages. The third judge had many details on her clipboard as she also studied the layouts. When tallying up the results (in no particular order) here are the names of the "2009 Junkie Designers!"

Lizzie Oakley
Deanna Middleton
Heidi Mansion
Robin Emswiler &
Laura Sexton
Congratulations ladies! We are so excited to spend the year working with you.

The Honorable Mentions are:
Rhonda Davis
Lisa Maxwell &
Rene Nowalk
(I will call each of you personally tomorrow with the details.)

All of the winning layouts will be displayed at the store through the end of the year. Come by and take a look at them. Our designers will be working on the first group project this Monday and we'll be ready to display these on the "Day after Thanksgiving."
To hear the excitement over the phone today as I called the winners was priceless. Thank you!

To all of the other sweet ladies, your entry pages are for you to keep. All you have to do, is switch the photos with the ones that you love. We appreciate you too! Your pages were all incredible.
I cannot thank you enough!
