What another fabulous month July was – so many beautiful and creative entries. We're all grateful that we don’t have to chose the outright winner and that it is done at random because you’re all so worthy! Right, down to announcing the winner (via is…

Well done Janet, an email is on it’s way to you!

Next we have our Top 3 merit awards and this month they’ve been chosen by Chris…

“Another really hard choice again this month and I can see so many makes that I’d like to give awards to! It has taken me hours and hours of whittling down my list but, as ever, I feel I must give the awards to those that I personally feel have met the challenge and demonstrated their ‘sizzle’, however that might be. My choices this month are (in numerical order):

T3dagmar14_thmb51d5c6a0c600c #14 – Dagmar of

"This bright and beautiful tag just leapt out at me and said ‘Summer sizzler’ all the way!"
T3sue94_thmb51f0d2d2cd293 #94 – Sue the Iron of

"Definitely a sizzler but fun and funky too! This one brought a big smile to my face."
T3Mian112_thmb51f6779fdc1c9 #112 – Mian of

”This quirky flamingo sitting sizzling on the beach is just so much fun and typifies the challenge theme.”

Well done to all three of you, emails and badges are on their way!

And, finally, our DTMSM (Design Team Member’s Special Mention) award: This goes to the entry who the judging team member thinks has shown the most originality and creativity in their project.

"I took my shortlist down to two entries and could not decide – I even slept on it overnight but still I couldn’t decide. So, this month, the award is split between two worthy winners and they are:
dtmsmsmsera66_thmb51e7e5bcbab3f #66 – serafeena of

These flip-flop boxes are brilliant, so creative and fun.
dtmsmcar113_thmb51f6976fdd15d #113 – Carmen of

I’ve seen bottle labels but this hanging treat box is such a fab idea, very inventive.

Congrat’s to both of you, emails and badges go to you too!

That concludes the awards for July, thank you all for taking part and supporting us. Good luck to you all for this month’s challenge.

Another project will be posted tomorrow. xxx
