i wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who submitted designs for the new print & pattern kids book. the deadline for entries has now passed and its time to make the final selections. i received an amazing 508 submissions so as you can imagine there are a lot of images to go through. i want to look at each one carefully and so im going to have to take a few days away from the blog this week to concentrate on all the submissions. i'll hopefully be back to normal service on thursday with all the usual design postings and storesnaps.
