I have included all of Marsha's entries in the Nov/Dec Challenges.

In the event of any of her submissions winning its category, the 'Prezzie Points' will be gifted in memory of Marsha to one of our struggling PB artists as an encouragement to continue their journey.

I hope that this meets with everyone's approval.
Cheers, Val

great idea and to ensure the "scholarship" idea goes ahead regardless, there are at least two anonymous donations that have been pledged now and over the Christmas period to help others, but have not been distributed yet. So these will be added to the amount as well.

From Paint Basket's side we will double up this amount so we can help at least two people.

If you know of or have a suggestion for somebody who is struggling and would benefit from this scholarship, please PM me your suggestion (don't post it here)
