My entry

Ok, so as much as I am beating myself up about this now, I am still pretty fond of it, so here it is:

the first assignment was to make a page using the Together and Artsylicious product that was included. This is the page I made. I had a really tough time with the title, and I have definitely decided that I dont like what I did with the brown paper there, but I just couldnt find something better.

And the other thing was wide open - item or page using the chatterbox product. They sent me a whole bunch of the really cool gems and buttons and stuff, so I looked at them and thought they reminded me of jewels so I wanted to make a princess jewelry box - complete with a ballerina. I had a terrible time finding a cheap jewelry box with a ballerina in it, but I did.

And now I wonder if the doll is too cheesy and maybe THAT is what made me not win - lol - gosh I overthink everything. Anyway, I still love it

So now I know I am sounding really sad and like I am really beatin myself up. but suprisingly I am not, I am still thrilled to have made the short list and the girls that won are just fabulous! those pages were totally drool worthy! So, really, I am ok. I am happy with what I did. (I can't help but crtique it after all we are all our own worst critic) but I am happy with it. I LOVE that box!
