School's back in session, and we are much more prompt in announcing our August winners!  (Thanks again for your patience with July.)  Be sure to grab your blog badges soon, because the new ones will be rolled out for our September winners in early October.

As always, we begin with announcing our August Addicts, the high rolling players who participated in every challenge of the month.  Congratulations to...

Aren't our Darlings, well, darling?!?  It is so difficult to choose the Top 10 and then it's even harder to narrow it down to one creative crafter.  Congratulations to our August Sweetheart...

Please take a moment to congratulate all of our winners either here, on their blogs, or both!  We look forward to seeing YOUR work featured at H2H this month.  What are you waiting for?  Happy crafting!
