March's TOP Subs of UNF-Nature & Super Info.

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 20, 2012, 10:52 PM
Welcome to March 2012’s Top Submissions of Unframed-Nature.

Thank you for being here whether you are a Member yet or not!
We welcome you and your support! :thanks:

Since the beginning of January 2012, we’ve grown almost 500 Members!
:omg: :party: :party: :party: :omg:

So a MAJOR welcome to all of our NEW MEMBERS!

:clap: :clap: :clap:

Thank you to our loyal Members who have been submitting to our Group for a long time now. Without you, we wouldn’t be here. :aww:


For March, we had a special Administrators’ CHOICE Month for the Monthly voting, which sometimes happens a few months out of the year, when things become extra busy for me, and most all of them helped with this,
and I thank these wonderful Admins. who helped with this, SO MUCH!

:clap: :heart: :clap:

And Dear Members, PLEASE feel free to come back to vote again as usual for APRIL’S TOP SUBMISSIONS!  
We do love the COMPLETE Membership Voting process.
Thank you!
:heart: :boogie: :heart:

Let’s continue to submit our own BEST QUALITY work, enjoy it, improve upon it, enjoy the work of others, and Nature in general. It’s what it’s all about-
combining our art with our love of Nature, and coming together under that commonality!

Without further ado...

Please Enjoy The Voted Top Submissions of March 2012.

[:note: Each section/folder has a small group, at the VERY TOP, where those had received just slightly more votes. The others are in no particular order.]
