Honorable Mention:
 
    The highest number of possible points on the judging sheet is 65.  The one entry getting the highest number of points was in a category with only two entries so no prize can be awarded.. But I believe Cathy Thorp deserves an Honorable Mention for “If My Cats Wore Hats” with its 62 out of 65 points.
