this sh!t is bananas!!!!

just kidding!!!!!!!!!

so I didn't get a hall of fame call (not surprised), or an honorable mention call, but that is OKAY!!

I'm really okay with it. I'm not going to get upset and think my work SUCKS just because I didn't win this one contest.

Of course, it would have rocked to win, but I don't think I am any less of a scrapper.

I'm trying to take this whole experience and put a positive spin on this. It doesn't mean I have to give up, or change; I just need to improved, amp up my photography, get comfy in my style.

I can do this right? And this has given me all of the motivation in the world to do the things I have been letting sit on the back burner. I have been letting my scrappin' slack, haven't been submitting much at all. Aside from this contest, I haven't been challenging myself.

On Monday we get to see who the 25 Hall of Famers are and I CAN'T WAIT!! So exciting!!

I'll leave you with one of my favorite pages from my hof entry. It was for the journaling assignment....the life changing moment...I kinda went a different way on this one...more free style journaling...

You my friend have a good attitude about this. And I do know what it is like to stress over this and feel totally heart broken when you don't win. Your usually your worse critique and you shouldn't be. You created an amazing entry. I know you are talented and more importantly you are an original. Hugs to you. Love this layout you shared.
