And this is what some lucky winner will get:
This weeks prize for one lucky participant from LOTV will be a . . .


In addition... Paper Temptress will offer some lucky person the opportunity to win some beautiful Cryogen paper!

Making clouds was a bit of a challenge for me.... but here is my take on the challenge. I wanted to make the little guy sit on a cloud but decided to move him over so the clouds would show (since that is the challenge :)
