2012 Lyn Ballinger Challenge...

...and Luncheon of course.  Always a fun day where the gals all gather for a lovely lunch with lots of goodies, all organised by our wonderful Caterers Extraordinaire, Beryl and Fran
of course these ladies always dress for the occasion, with  astoundingly beautiful head wear and aprons designed to get everyone into the festive mood.

To start the day off, Judy bought along some Show and Tell that she has created for her daughter who loves to travel.  It's a needle case, yep a tinsy little case (or as Queenslanders call it - 'a Port'), luggage labels and all.
 Judge Roz had quite the challenge choosing a winner, checking that all entries would fit into a 6" cube.

Of course everyone has to wait til after Lunch to view all the entries and find out who the winners are, so we shall do the same.
No, don't even try to match the party girls with the finished challenges, its all a secret until after the Judging.

Oh, and somewhere in amongst all that giggling, chatting, and eating, Julie decided to heck with the pretty and dashed home to get something a little warmer to wear..
And now you have seen all the entries, well almost all. 

 Drum roll please!!

And the Winners of the Lyn Ballinger Challenge for 2012 are...
Marie, with 2nd Prize for her Mermaid and Fishes on the bottom of the Sea.

Heather with 1st Prize for her Clown Fish and Coral Reef

and Lorraine with 3rd Prize for her Jellyfish, and yes! it does fit!
Lorraine folded her Jelly Fish down into a 6" box for Judge Roz, as Lorraine said, 'There's a lot of air in a Jelly Fish'.

Congratulations to the Winners, and Big Thank You's to everyone who made the day such a success, all those who accepted the challenge, Fran and Beryl for organising the food and kitchen, Roz, our Cottage Treasurer for so very kindly being our Judge, Sue and Sheila for all the work and  organisation involved in mounting a Challenge and a very special Thank You to Marie for taking the pics, making it possible for you all to view the wonderful entries and share in the fun of the day.
