A Scrapbook Layout that got one lousy vote...my own!



I made it to the 25 finalists at Carolinez Delightz and had to submit another layout using only ribbon, cardstock, and paint. I was so pleased with how this layout turned out.....and yet it only received one vote on the forum....my own. I was so sad that no one really liked it! So obviously I didn't make it to the next round! I think this was a particularly hard blow, only because I did submit my work to the Memory Makers Masters Challenge and now I am feeling like there is NO WAY I have a chance! There was a small part of me that dreamed of getting that call that I had made it....

I guess I won't quit my day job....LOL! I think I will stick to teaching...

I like it but it needed something, like an extra black cardstock square in the background, grounding the painting maybe. (hope you don't mind the cc)
Don't worry about the masses girl, you might not have won the popularity contest but you could still win MMM because of the talent!
