22 Mar


Hello and welcome to this months challenge vote.

The theme for the challenge this month was ‘March Madness’ which could have been anything reflecting any of the events happening in March this year, for example; Easter, Mothers Day, British Summer Time starting, The start of Spring, St Patrick’s Day and St Davids Day, spring flowers starting to bloom etc, so there was plenty of scope and flexibility for anybody that wanted to enter this month and as you can see we have had some lovely entries.  (Oh! and judging by the current weather I think I should have included snow too!!!)

So please take a look at all the entries, each photograph includes a description of the item if it has been included,and url links to their Facebook/on-line store/websites, but you will have to copy and paste these into your browser if you want to visit them (apologies for this).  Once you have had a look at them all, I do hope you will then take the time to vote for your favourites it would be very much appreciated by all those who have entered, details on how to vote are below.
