August 2014 Winners, Features, Finalists & Honourable Mentions

Hi everyone!  Thanks so much for playing along with SATW in August!!
We finished on a very respectable 88 entries in the quietest month online
 {European Summer!!}  Marilyn's beautiful mood board (above) brought out 
THE BEST IN EVERYONE!!!  Selecting 10 Wall of Famers this month was
 the most difficult it has EVER been around here!  But...there are tougher
jobs out there than going through dozens of INCREDIBLE ARTWORKS
month after month & we at SATW are feeling super inspired thanks to YOU!

We do not accept cards or Off-the-Page items & we ask that you please provide
YOUR NAME & COUNTRY so that we have those details to mention if you are
a prize winner, for our Winners' Post & Wall of Fame or to list you in our
 Honourable Mentions.  We also need to SEE your layout so you need
 to select it for the linky tool & link back to your ACTUAL BLOG POST - 
doing this will put you in the running with a great chance!  Thank you :)
