July: Stack-a-holic Template Challenge WINNERS!

Oh today's post is so hard!

I am feeling soooo guilty! Last night I went through all of the submissions for this month's challenge! All I can say is, wow. I seriously could have EASILY had a Top 20 this month!! You blow me away! I feel so bad picking a Top 10!

If you didn't see the challenge, I asked everyone to create a layout using this template:

This was probably my hardest month to pick my favorites. I couldn't believe how great y'all did with the 2 page layout!! I feel like a meany-pants but I have to pick my top ones. But luckily I will let my little boy giving me a number between 1 & 10 to decide a winner :)

Here are my top 10 this month...Remember, click on the photo for a bigger view!!

Celebrations Stack by Yanely Abreu
The banner pieces work perfectly with the photos and papers!

Mod Retro Stack by Kristy Luccketta

Ultimate Stack by Angela Alexander
Love how it was altered for a 8 1/2 x 11 layout

Eco Stack by Kathy Perry
Who would have guessed this was the Eco Stack used?!

Tis' the Season Digital Stack by Amber McBurney
Fun having a digital version!

Flower Shower Stack by Tracy Thompson

Nantucket Stack by Amy Jo Middleton
This one just makes me happy!

Linen Closet Stack by Sandy Lewis
Love how the soft colors match the mood of the title

Dots, Stripes & Plaids Stack by Brittany Kohl
love the rounded edges instead of the banner pieces

Downtown Loft Stack by Mandy Stallins
Great, unique color combination

One of the reasons why I love these challenges,  it allows you to break into your stacks, old or new, and create! I love seeing some of my older, favorite stacks used. Like Downtown Loft & Mod Retro! So's like running into an old friend at the grocery store :)

Out of these TOP 10 I want to pick a my little guy picked a number between 1 & 10....

Congratulations to...
