-Beautiful entries! So much color and texture and we're spoiled for choice!
-Each piece is prize worthy.
-So many lovely pieces to choose from it was hard to decide. They ALL deserve to be winners.
-Love all the entries! Hard to pick just 3 out of 10, let alone 1st, 2nd, 3rd!
-My personal interpretation of mosaics and a love of peacocks influenced my 1st place selection but all the works of art entered this month are all beautiful.
-WOW This one is really hard to pick just three that are the best. I think they are all the best. Good work to all of you.
-Hard to chose only 3!
-Wow! Everything looks amazing!
-It was very difficult to chose this time. So many outstanding pieces. Good luck to everyone.
-I just have to say that these are all great entries! Beautiful work!
-Wow, ladies you have done it again. Nice work all. Beth the tray was fabulous, with bright colors and neat design. Phoenix: really nice work, and Arlene Your mosaics are always spectacular...didn't know where to look first. Lots of good work, I enjoyed each piece
-That peacock tray is incredible! The amount of time and effort is just WOW!
Nice work on all entries! It was difficult to pick a favorite. I love colorful so I picked #5 for my vote. 
- Beautiful creations once again!!! Choosing is never easy! BTW where does one see who the winners are for voting. hard to decide as there is so much talent! All of them were amazing!
-This was so very difficult for me. All of them were beautiful and well-done, but the Peacock tray and the two mosaic tile hangings were simply marvelous!
-The best theme yet, my top three are really all joint first place .
-All of these are artful but some just 'stood out' . I look for finishing techniques...can't help it. First thing I do with a piece of jewelry is pick it up and look at the back. #10 drew my first place vote immediately.
-Wow!! I'm going to have to give this a try. I love all of them!!
-Very nice ladies. I didn't get a chance to make an entry, but you have all inspired me to try.
all are wonderful and eye catching, but these three spoke to me in the order I have them listed above.
great works!
-Most beautiful assortment of artworks this month. Thank you all!!!!!!!!!!
-Aside from the entries I voted for, all the other pieces are impressive and worthy of consideration.
-Such rich colors this time!
