Remember this? EDITED
Dude, I won! I won my 1st blog challenge! Got to http://www.methodplayground.blogspot.com to see my my 5 seconds of fame;) They are sending me a box of goodies this weeks:)
This had really good timing for me because I was totally kicked out in the 1st round at Cocoa Daisy's Daisy Diner Scrap Off. I really think its because I submitted kinda cruddy photos of my layout. But they also passed up some other work that I really thought was superior to the 8 they did choose. To each there own. But I was bummed. I was ready to stop participating in any online forums, challenges, blogs or what ever. I like my work and am proud of it. But the talent out there blows my work out of the water.I realize that it is not the point. I must be searching for some kind of validation. You should see peoples faces when I tell them I am a scrapbooker. Oh, you know what they are picturing! I'll never forget telling my dad I was attending a scrapbook convention for the 1st time several years ago. He laughed so hard(which is pretty bad considering he carves exact replicas of ducks to enter in world competitions! What a nerd;) )
But he is picturing a bunch of perm-haired, 300 pound women wearing tapered leg jeans and sweatshirts with kittens embroidered on them. yeah, they are out there. In hoards! But there are also really cool hip artist who just love paper and photography and love to journal. I try to identify with the latter. I let my perm go in 1990.*
I gotta throw out some props to the MONTAGUE Wildcats football team for winning their 1st ever State Championship! My cousin Cody Kater is the quarterback and he was amazing today. I actually watched the entire game on TV. SO fun. The kids loved it. My parents were there as was Gary and most of Cindy's family. So we tried to spot them in the crowd. Wishing them all safe trip home tonight.
Here's to being a winner!(and a loser)
*please take no offense if you happen to have a perm/kitten sweatshirt/tapered leg jeans. However I will be submitting your name to my favorite show,What Not to Wear. Stacy and Clinton will take good care of you and your sweatshirt.;)
