A Last Taste of Summer (Scavenger Hunt Winners)

Thanks for everyone's patience in waiting for the winners of the Summertime Scavenger Hunt. All-in-all, there were 23 people who participated.  Here are some of people's favorites:
Amy's Rain
Sian's graffiti:
Yvonne's Castle:
Helena's Political Protest:
Karen's Someone Sketching:
Deb's Decorated Mailbox (A party inside):
Alison's Self Portrait (because she looks so fabulous!):
Mel's Wooden Bridges:
Jacky's graffiti:
An assortment from Debs (including a museum, cemetery, rooster and building made of glass):
Karen's Rain:
Jo's Stitched Together Forest:
The Mann Castle:
Ginger's montage (including her favorite, the flag):
Fiona's Building made of Metal:
Cindy's Hand Lettered Sign Giving Directions:
Irene's roadside memorial:
Miriam's fair (her whole flicker stream, here, is worth checking out):
Mary's Unicycle:
And, finally, my pirate:
Thank you to everyone who participated! I was thrilled by the response, and I will definitely do another one in January (but shorter and smaller) and a similar one next summer.
Now, on to the winners:
The Overachiever Category Prize goes to Mel! I'll be gifting her a Shimelle class.
The Snapshot/Team Category Winner is The Mann Family! They got all 21 pictures.  I'll be sending her a gift card to get her photos developed and an album in which to put them.
There were three people in the photography category who got all 21 items: Yvonne; Jo and Marian.  Alison found 20 and several people came in at 19.  After a random draw from the top 3, the winner is:  Yvonne!  I'll be sending her a gift card to choose her favorite photo and have it enlarged onto an 8x8 "standout" from MPIX. 
Finally, I put everyone else's name into a hat (Amy; Helena; Jo; Sian; Karen; Deb; Alison; Jacky; Ginger; Stacey; Fiona; Irene; Mariana; Laurie; Debs; Cindy; Mary B; and Karen) and pulled a random winner.  The lucky girl is Stacey! I'll send you a gift certificate for some large format prints as well.
Winners, please email me at rinda1961@yahoo.com, so that I have your correct email address. Also, please include your mailing address. Thanks again to everyone for playing along!

Oops think I commented about the scavenger hunt in the wrong place
Never mind I'll say it again
I really enjoyed this and love the fact you say you are going to do it again.
The strange thing is that I found my little unicycle man again only this morning he had got buried under a pile of papers.

Amy said...

Thanks Rinda, I found this a great project to follow on your blog and many of the other participants.
I'm looking forward to January's edition .... I know that if you include sand, which will be strange as it is your winter, I'll see plenty of that! Just putting in a minor heads up ... not wanting to make a head start or anything! ;-)

Sian said...

This was a wonderful project. I really enjoyed it and as you know I am hoping for Mark Two soon! That graffiti picture - it's a favourite of mine from the summer and I probably would never have taken it if it hadn't been for you

Irene said...

That was fun and I look forward to playing again. Gracias!
