Please Vote - Design Throwdown!

I was asked by the lovely Kelsey from Minted Life to participate in a Design Throwdown.  Essentially, it's Iron Chef for the design set - take a common "ingredient" and make it fabulous.  We decided on a basic outdoor mat from IKEA and the results were completely different but completely AWESOME.

Kelsey paired up with Morgana from Fellow Creatives.  I brainstormed with Penny from Pantomime Papers.  Now it's time for judging.  That is where you come in!  Using the survey below, vote for your favorite outcome.  We have Team Ahoy who transformed the plain Jane mat into an adorable summery welcome mat and Team Pinboard who turned the mat into a "Cork" Board and a French Memo Board.  See what I mean?  They are both so much fun.

Create your free online surveys with SurveyMonkey, the world's leading questionnaire tool.
What a fun concept!  A big thank you to Kelsey for inviting me to participate in this Design Throwdown!

SO...I totally love the stenciled design...but the pinboard wins hands down in my book because it repurposed the whole thing! LOVE it!!
