and I'm sure some will be saying good riddance!!! It's been an interesting and testing year in New Zealand - Earthquakes, Pike River Tragedy, Fox Glacier Plane Crash, flooding, the economy and that's just the major things we have contended with.
Here's wishing for a fantastic 2012 - it can only get better!
I love these off the page challenges - you have all done so well again! Really inspiring and creative, but wow do we need you to help with voting again. Send us your vote on who you like 1st & 2nd's to email@example.com
They are done in pairs, so the voting needs to be for both entries from the one person. See I told you this was hard - aren't they great! (one entry has pulled out, so six to choose from)
