i_wonWe have another Secret Contest winner!

Steph T. (Pleasant Hill, CA) had the most reader submissions in a month! She may not comment a lot, but she keeps us informed. Steph submitted two Daily Darling photos of her children, and shared some content ideas that generated a few blog posts.

Congratulations and thank you, Steph, for reading and participating!

We have many on-going Secret Contests for different prizes. You’ll never know what the contest is (it’s a secret!), but staying involved and particiating will reveal them one by one and might create some! It could be for submitting photos, sharing a story, recipe or funny quote, or maybe…just for commenting. So, keep coming back and sharing with le•top blog because you might win just for letting us know you’re out there! Stay tuned to see what Steph won. It might be something really special from the le•top Spring 09 Collection.
