The cybercrop winners were:
Ch 1 - Joy

Ch 2 - Paula

Ch 3 - Sue

Ch 4- Mandy

Ch 5 - Vicki

Ch 6 - Princessbeccie

Congratulations ladies, and thanks for taking the time to complete some of the challenges.  I know it was a busy month, but you all did extremely well and still made it hard to select winners!! :)

I would also like to say a HUGE congratulations to Bec (princessbeccie) who has managed to take out the title of Queen of the Crop this month, by getting all the challenges complete!!  Bec will be guest DT in June!!  I can't wait to see what she comes up with, as she has only been scrapping for a very short time, but you can definately tell her confidence is growing with the more challenges she completes, and her scrapping is coming ahead in leaps and bounds!!  Congrats Bec, you deserve it!! :)

Thanks also to our awesome sponsors!!  This crop we had:
