And now over to Claire and Michelle, in silly Santa hats again, to announce the winners of the Altered Mirror competition!
In third place, Mandy with her autumnal dog walk themed mirror. Good use of texture, techniques and colour.
And in first place, Linda with her collage of techniques. Linda put a lot of work into her mirror and used a whole range of techniques. Lots of different colours but carefully chosen to complement one another.
Well done to you all and enjoy spending your vouchers Linda and hope you all enjoy decorating your next mirror!
And now on to the awards. This year our theme was inspired by the "Juan Sheet" technique and members were all presented with our equivalent of advertising Oscars - the Juans!! Each award was based on a different advertising slogan, carefully selected to sum up what the award was for!!
Brenda - The "Duracell" award for Loyalty and Attendance. ("Still going!")
Rachael - The "Nokia" award for Social Networking and bringing new members to the Club. ("Connecting People")
Sheila - The "Esure" award for Patience and Perseverance. (Calm down dear it's only a ...craft project!")
Carol - The "Mr Kipling" award for "Exceedingly Good...Cards!

And finally, the winner of our "Juan Sheet" Juan award was Billy-Jane for Best Newcomer.
Billy was presented with her award on Monday at Tadworth, which sadly was also our last meeting there. Our members there had a little surprise up their sleeves for us too. We each received a tub of chocolates and a lovely basket of flowers with a personalised tag made by Billy. (see below)
