The winner of our first ever monthly challenge is La Paperie with her Autumn Handbound Leather Journal. She received 104 votes out of 237 total votes! Congratulations! It is a beautiful book, and well deserving of the number of votes that it received.
The runner up was My Handbound Books with her entry: The Celebrating Autumn Journal . She received 74 votes. Congratulations to you as well!

Watch for the details of the next monthly challenge coming soon, and expect some absolutely stunning entries.
Thank you to all the voters and to those who left comments. Your encouragement and kind words about our work means a lot to us.
