It was another awesome month for my photo hunt challenge at A Cherry On Top.  There were 15 participants and 177 photos taken.  Once again my bowl was brimming to the top with all the entries.  

I enlisted my husband for help with this drawing. 

As you can see, he’s not too good at following directions.  He must’ve been thinking this was popcorn not entries.  Anyway, he finally got it right and picked a single winner.
