So there you have it! Please remember that I speak for ALL of the judges, Carolyn from CHS Creative Productions, Tanya from Save the Date for Cupcakes and Jillian from Catch My Party when I say this voting was very difficult and honestly, every single party amazed us. There was something that we loved about EACH of your parties. Thank you so much for your inspiration! Until the next challenge...
As a mechanism to bring you all of this wonderful party on a budget inspiration in ONE place, I’m introducing “The Benjamin Project”. An online electronic publication that will consolidate all of the challenge entries, vendors, judges and even giveaway contributors! I thought that this would be a wonderful way to take this little challenge to the next level and put these ideas at your fingertips. Readers will be able to download the publication and reference it as needed! I asked Kristy from The Purple Pug if she would partner with me in doing this publication and luckily she said Yes! Not only is she amazing at what she does, she is also quite the clever word-smither (is that a word). So please stay tuned for the first issue of “The Benjamin Project” in the coming months!
