So finally, the round up for MLLA 21 is here, even if it just the first part. I am not even going into the reasons why this got delayed by 5 days. Lets just say there were things that kept me REALLY busy! First of all thanks to Susan for letting me host this lovely event and a bigger thanks to all the participants. I was just overwhelmed by the response for this event. I tried replying by email or by visiting the blogs of the participants, but later I just couldn’t keep track and I am sure I missed replying to some of you. But anyway, one more round of MLLA is over and it was fantastic with some of the most awesome entries! MLLA21AmendedLogoLarge The entries are in the order I received them. In the second part of the round up the winner will be announced. In each of the collages, read each row one by one from left to right.
