PP422 Challenge Winners and Holiday Break

Hi everyone, Joanne here! Thank you to all who played along with my colour challenge this week. We know this is a busy, busy time of year for everyone and we appreciate you taking the time to play along.  Before we get to my choice for Headliner, let's see what caught the eye of the Design Team this week.  

And now for our Headliner:

Stef Perry - Perry Papercrafts

I loved the mix of traditional festive colours in the gallery this week and Stef's exquisitely coloured pine cone ornament caught my eye immediately. The soft brown of the pinecone complimented the red and green perfectly and the stitched frame detail and wonderfully glossy berries elevated this realistic-looking image to a whole new level. Congratulations Stef on being my headliner this week!

Thank you again to everyone for playing along with us in this our last challenge of 2018. Congratulations to all our winners, please pick up your badges here.    

As the year ends, it is time for us to say goodbye to our current trio of guest designers, Jan Clothier, Elizabeth Stewart and Annie Abrahamson. On behalf of the entire Paper Players team, I would like to thank you for your wonderful contributions and creative endeavours this year. We will miss you all dearly and look forward to continuing to follow you via your blogs as you continue on your creative journeys. Our valued team member, the wonderful Sandy Mathis, is also taking some time out to focus on other commitments, so will not be creating with us as we move into the new year. She is planning to return at some point in the future so in the meantime we would also like to wish her well until she is back with us.

We are taking a short break to enjoy the festive season with our families and will be back with our first challenge of 2019 on Sunday 6th January, with an announcement of our new Guest Designers shortly before. Merry Christmas wishes to you all and thank you for playing along with The Paper Players in 2018.
