And now…the coloring post!

This post is hard for me to post.  I thought ALL the entries were incredible (one had an entire castle panorama and another even had a giant stained-glass window in the background (Egads!!)) and I wanted everyone to win, so it hurts to say that only some people get stuff.  BUT then I realized that everyone who entered is a winner, because they received the pure joy of coloring the picture!  Your crayons may be smaller, but your hearts are full of love.  Yes.  You are ALL winners!*

*Except you don’t get stuff**
**aaaargh aaargh I’m such a jerk!

Alex Bell, the judge, said it was tricky to decide.  He decided mostly on color schemes, so this is Coloring Contest: Hardcore.  Alex is a crazy good artist, and has done Artist’s Alley at Comic-Con.  Here is his blog.  Go stalk him!

I promised I would post the coloring contest winnahs yesterday, but it occurred to me I’d better ask the peeps if it was ok to post these.  They all said yes and here they are! 

 Elisabeth Clyde won in the 0-11 yr category

The 0-19 category had a tie!

 Josie Phillips

Kimberly Kay won an honorable mention in this category ^^  (honorable mentions get a beaded bookmark…luckeeeeee)

 20+ category winner was Kevin Nordstrom

 And honorable mention goes to Julie Graham

Everyone, thank you so much for entering!  I was thrilled with the response.  You are all EPIC!
