Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeal! Kelly-Kelleanne!

Can't believe we're both onto the final round of the SO contest! I never, ever expected to get this far, it's so nerve-wracking!

Can't wait to see what you do with the kit! If you need any girly pictures (it's a pretty girlie kit!), I can lend you some! lol

Scrap Orchard (a digi-scrap site) is having a Contest to become a Creative Team (CT) Member for their site - it's 4 rounds, 130 ppl entered at first, and now they're down to 40 ... Kelly and I both entered (as well as Steph!) and both Kelly and I made it thru to the final round - so if we 'win' or get thru this round, we become CT members for the Scrap Orchard site - meaning you get to use any of their products for free to create pages. It's a great site, and I love all the designers there, so it would be like a dream come true!

Actually, my guess is that there will be 20-something winners lol. They had 22 CT members before, I'm guessing they'll go with the same numbers. All the current CT members had to re-apply.

Week 4 just started today (winners/contestants for round 4 were announced around 7 my time), but here are the galleries for the first 3 weeks, if you have nothing to do and want to look:

hahaha! I just now saw the results (just woke up) and headed straight over here to write a post to you! I am really excited. I had no expectations of really making the team when I started this. I just thought it would be fun to play. But now that I have made it this far I am getting really excited. AND how coool would it be if we were on the team together!? Again, the kit is not exactly my style (too girly) but I like a challenge ;-).
I have no doubt we are both going to rock this next round and get on the team. (positivie thinking never hurts lol) Oh, and i may take you up on the pictures...let me look through first and see if I have something of my mom or sister I can use, and if not I will let you know. thanks!

I think this is the first of the kits so far that is actually my style! It's been a good challenge though to use the other ones. And yes, it would be super fun to be on the team together!! Let me know about the pictures! Just check my facebook or photobucket if you need one and tell me which one so I can email you the full-size version.

Aw, thanks! I wondered who the other 3 people that voted for me were (I voted for myself, Kelly and a few others). 1 of the mysteries solved! lol

Thanks Stephanie and Trina!! I got like 4 votes. At least I know where two of them came from Smile I wasn't worried about votes for the quick pages though. I am glad that doesn't have any bearing on who goes to the next round.

Have you done your page Trina? I finished mine mostly, but I am really nervous about it. I never get nervous about my pages but I am about this one. I should just post the thing so I don't go making a bunch of changes and mess it up. I decided that even though it is a girly kit it was ok for newborn pics of boys. I will probably look at it for another day or so before deciding to post. ahhh my nerves! lol

Kelly - I saw your finished page, just gorgeous! Haven't had time to comment over there yet. This is the first round I've been filled with dread, I just don't think my page can compete against the other beauties (yours included!). Can it be Sunday yet?

Yep, Kelly, your page is great! It is pretty and creative. I'll be dumbstruck if you don't make it.

Trina, is your page posted yet?

I love both of your LOs. They are both very much so your respective styles and they are great. Boy am I glad I'm not one of the judges though, so much great work in the group! Best of luck to both of you.

JMHO.... but compared to the others, yours does look plain Trina, rather then just simple. I like it... but I'm amazed how busy everyone's is in the last round here. You might be right to consider redoing, then again, it could be the simplicity that gets you through.

That's exactly what I thought ... I actually had a hard time with this kit, despite it being more my usual 'style'. The first page I did was just way too busy for my liking though ... and I guess if they don't like my usual style, I don't think they'd like me on their team, right? I don't know ... I think I'll just leave it and if they like it, great, and if not, well, it's not the end of the world.

Ok, so I said that and then went and looked at it again, and decided I really could do a better job ... so I changed it (added more so it didn't look so plain) ... what do you guys think? Better or worse?

I like it better Trina, it still looks like your work but I feel has better balance. I really liked the original too but I think this new one has a slight endge.

I love your redo Trina! But then I loved the original too. They both reflect your style and I really like how you scrap. I really really think your page is absolutely good enough to make the final cut. The pages in general this round are too busy for my taste and I like that your's is simpler. Of course I do worry some that mine is too simple. Who knows what the judges are looking for really. All we can do is wait and see. Make it or not, either way is really ok with me. I just had fun playing.

Oh the touch ups you added are PERFECT. Still very much your style, but it just finishes it off really well to me. I think it was just the right amount of changes to keep it essentially Trina, but finished. Smile
