We Have Our Winners!

We have a winner!
Several, actually....

First Place:
"Ida's Quilt" by Mellissa, at The Fraker's Acres!

As soon as I first saw this quilt I knew it would be a possibility for first. Everything about it is fantastic! The bright, springy colors, the fun and feminine shapes and prints, and the cute, ruffly pictures! I love the idea of using ruffles and clouds and grass.
It's clear that this quilt (made for Mellissa's daughter) has hours upon hours of hard work and love bundled up in it! Look at all these fun details!
Congratulations, Mellissa!i

Second Place:
"tRuffles and tEa" party, by Sarah at 2 Giggle Boxes!

Sarah really went all out on this one! This looks like every little girls dream party! She made all the decorations, tablewear, and even all the girls dresses and accessories! I am so impressed! By sure to check out her post to see even more pictures, and she even has a tutorial for the "ruffelier"!

Congratulations, Sarah!

Third Place:
"The Ruffled Table" by Carrie, at Apple Inspired Creations!

This table rocks my world! It has everything you could ever dream of in a project: Creativity, inexpensiveness, and startling good looks! It was made from one of those $5 side tables you can buy in Walmart. I LOVE the wooden "ruffles"!
Great job, Carrie! Congrats! :o)

    Congratulations to all of the winners.

    Thank you again for hosting this fun contest.

  18. Congratulations to you talented ladies!!

    I am just considering myself lucky to have all of this inspiration, especially from Disney! She inspired me to finally pull out my mom's sewing machine and figure it out already - and I am having a BLAST!!

  21. OH MY GOSH! LOVE all the ruffles! I would especially love to know how to make the ruffle shoes and hat!

  22. seeing all those ruffly projects makes me so jealous :) I think I might have been born without the ruffle bone :) soo many of these inspired me to try projects...lets just say I think I'll stick to what I know...simple jewelry designs :)I dont know how on earth you picked a winner they are all so awesome! I'm glad you picked a winner though cause I was running out of excuses to run upstairs and check to see who won :)

  23. This was so much fun! Thank you for doing all this work to get us ruffling!! The entries are amazing, I don't even know what to say!! Who knew all that stuff could be ruffled??? The little boy stuff too, adorable! I especially loved some of the pictures that people took. You all are so creative :)



  24. Congratulations! What a fun bunch of creations. They are amazing! Thanks for the contest and all the inspiration!

  25. I'm so glad that quilt won! When I saw it in the slide show I had to pause the run to stare at it longer. What a beautiful piece!

  26. SUGH a fun competition. I may have spent a little too long looking at those slides.... So much creativity! I am so honored to have a little shout out on there (ruffle skirt, last pic). Thanks Disney!
