Drum Roll - Birthday Party Final Winners

Friday!  The weather is supposed to be nice again, minus the wind.  70's for today and then it turns tomorrow, just in time for standing out at soccer games; one down here, and two up in the mountains - always a fun drive between weather conditions up there, skier traffic and just plan lunacy of people driving in the mountains.  Not to mention the drive is over an hour, in good conditions.  They've also been blasting rocks out of the way and the detour, if they close the roads, is another hour and thirty minutes.  Gotta love sports, LOL.

There's some entirely different lunacy that seems to be driving a bird to fling itself into my kitchen window in the mornings.  Well, and my bedroom window.  I'm not sure what his issue is, but he needs to stop.  I tell you, I won't be surprised to find him laying on the ground some morning, feathers rumpled and sticking out, looking dazed and confused.  Dumb bird.

Before I headed out for my walk today, I thought it best to drop the suspense of who won what for the last picks from the Birthday party.  Did you know that over 140 layouts were created by 15 people - I'm sure more were being made by ladies who weren't uploading.  That's amazing!!  If you figure you can get about 30-ish pages into an album we would have completed over four albums.  If you haven't browsed the linked layouts, take a moment - you'll be inspired!

On to the winners:
  • Week #5 Winner:  Deanna!
  • Last Day Winner:  Alison Day
  • And finally, the overall winner who was chosen from those who completed all the challenges:  Deanna!
Congrats to everyone!

I've got plenty to do today: April kits, newsletters, May kits and then later a fish fry and a volleyball game.  Sounds like Friday to me.

Enjoy yours!

Now I have "She'll be coming round the mountain..." stuck in my head LOL!

Congratulation to Deanna and Alison! Everyone's projects were so much fun to look at... thanks for this fun event Lori. I sure filled half an album with my LOs! And I can't wait to see what's coming in the May kit!

BTW, to stop the birds from flying into your window, try drawing on the window with a bar of soap. That's what they do at our local Zoo. Some decorative flourishes or maybe some family stick figures by the kids. Or maybe just adhere some vinyl silhouettes to the glass as home decor...
