Anyway, this was the challenge that the ten finalists received:
"About Me" Mini-Album
Showcase your scrapbooking skills with an "all about me" 8-page (4 pages front and back), mini-album. It's that simple! Just tell us about yourself and use everything in your repertoire to dazzle your peers on your way to becoming $2,500 richer!
I am really excited and nervous about this final challenge. I know the competition will be tough, and the stakes are high! Who wouldn't want to win $2,500?????? I believe that voting opens at 10:00 am E.T on September 12 and ends at 12:59 am on September 20. What a nerve-racking 8 days that will be! It is really tough to watch the votes go up (or not go up). I really try to stay away from the computer as much as possible, but it really is hard not to check.
I thank all of you who voted daily for me last time....you all helped me win and become a finalist! I hope that you will take the time to vote this time around. Remember that you can vote one time each day. And if you have not voted in any of the other rounds in the contest, you can register to vote here. I appreciate all of the help that everyone gives me!
I plan on sharing my mini-book here on the blog as soon as I get the okay. I am sure they do not want us sharing before the final round actually starts. I will, however, share this page with you.
It appeared in the Memory Makers Idea Gallery a few months back. I received a message the other day from a girl who wanted to let me know that she lifted my design. I was thrilled that I could give someone some inspiration. I really liked this layout and was happy that it got picked up. I think I might add "2007" to this layout and then do one every year to document Ryan's world each year. This was such a fun layout to do. I managed to get the important pics AND the journaling in!
Well, thanks for stopping by (if anyone is still around)! Hope your week is going great!
