Here are the winners of our contest -


Because I announced if there was a tie I would pay more than one prize at that level - and because you all have such diverse taste - we have one clear winner and several tied in 2nd place and also 3rd place :D

Congrats ~ Emoticon  CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU ALL!! :clap:

Due to the number of winners needing to be featured here, I will do additional feature journals over the next few weeks :)

If anyone would like to donate points to get the account up & running again you can via the widget at the group or on my own page, it would be gratefully appreciated!! (live and learn - no more paying out when there is tied votes :D)
