A Walk in the Park...

 Here is my card for Midnight Madness this week! Read on about a special award that is being given, and the person behind it!

One of MY cards is in the finalists, so please, please, go and vote for me HERE!!! YAY!!!! (how's that for a shameless plug??)

 Welcome to the last week of the month long Midnight Madness Blogaversary celebration. This will be the last week to get in on the Huge Blogaversary Candy Giveaway and the May monthly sponsors prize that is being awarded to 5 people! We have had a blast with you at the dance party and the barbecue and now we have one more surprise for our final festivity. For the last week of our gala event we are rolling out the red carpet and are about to embark on a yearly Blogaversary tradition. Each of the design team had to pick out a favorite dress on the "red carpet" and I chose this one! How pretty is this? Helen Mirren wears it so well!

In honor of the person who started the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge, the design team unanimously chose to name a very special award the "Priscilla Award". Priscilla has inspired, encouraged, motivated, and stimulated everyone of us in our crafting endeavors. She has been our friend, our mentor, our confident, our sister in crafting. She is tireless in her efforts to bring you the best of the best each week and to challenge each and everyone of us to achieve greater heights than we ever thought imaginable. She was humbled by the idea of us coming together to call it the "Priscilla Award", but we as the Design Team thought it was only fitting for the highest honor that someone could achieve on Midnight Madness to be named after our founding individual.

We would like to present to ONE outstanding card/craft person who is represented amongst our GOLD STAR winners of the past year, the coveted "Priscilla Award". Not only that, but it is going to be the "PEOPLES CHOICE". What does that mean....that means that the Midnight Madness weekly players are going to choose the winner this time!!!! You can find the 20 finalists randomly chosen for this honor HERE. The voting will last all week, so tell your friends and family to come vote too. Voting closes Monday May 31st at 8pm PST

*Our MMSC55 weekly Bonus sponsor is.....
