#488-Birthday Wishes- All Dressed Up

Hello and welcome back to Creative Knockouts!  
 
The winner of our last challenge (#486) did not claim their prize and because we are now bi weekly, I am behind on a 2nd chance winner but that person is entry #61-Andrea La Vigne.  Congratulations Andrea, please contact Kelly to claim your prize courtesy of Alex Syberia Designs!

Question for you.....would it work better if I chose a new winner mid challenge (which was my initial plan, but hasn't happened for one reason or another) if the first winner did not contact me in time?  I think a week is long enough to check back in all honesty and it takes 2 seconds to see if you're the winner, but feel that leaving it for the full 2 weeks kind of puts things really behind and draws it out for claiming prizes for the sponsor and such especially if it takes more than one re draw for the winner to claim their prize....would love your feedback so please feel free to send me an email or leave a comment with your suggestions! 
************************************************

So last challenge was super fun!  Such great entries in our Love is in the Air/Valentine's or a color challenge of  red/white and pink challenge!  Our fabulous sponsor was The Paper Shelter and one lucky person will be the winner of 3 images courtesy of The Paper Shelter.
 
 Our lucky winner is entry
#25-Lisa Johnson
