I'm late...I know I said I would post on Sunday. But after all the fabulous Mom's Day festivities, and then watching Grey's last night I just couldn't focus. Holy FREAK!!! Did you all see it?! I am dying! Thank heaven that the finale is tonight so I don't have to wait a whole week. Could it get any more suspenseful?! I highly doubt it. Making no other plans tonight than to park my tushy on the couch, eat my extremely unhealthy saturated fat laden microwave popcorn, and watch what will probably be the best 2 hours of TV history. Yup, that's how big of a loser I am. :)
So I did make the cut for the contest. phewwwwww.... There are some of the most amazingly talented scrappers left. I am floored! I KNOW for a fact that I don't stand a chance, but I am honored to even be included in this list. YAY!!! But I have to tell you how incredibly intense this last challenge was for me. No, not because it was a page about myself, but because I am the biggest idiot on the face of the earth. Let me explain: So I had been working on my page off and on all day Thursday, and a good portion of Friday. Things were just NOT flowing. I couldn't think. My brain was cloudy. I had no scrapping mojo what-so-ever. (Don't you love how it disappears right during a competition?!) So it took me a LOT longer than my normal pages do. So on Friday afternoon I had it about 80% done. I had the basic design, just needed to add a little more "floof", fix my lame journaling, and add my drop shadows. It would probably take me about a half hour and it would be done. So Todd got home from work and asked me if we could get a sitter for the babies and we would go look at some homes that are going to be in a local home show next week. (We are building a house if you don't know, so "home" stuff consumes most of our evenings these days.) So we went out on a little "date night" if-you-will. I had left photoshop open with my unfinished page sitting there ready to finish when we got home. We had a great time and got home about 8:30. I knew I was pushing it because the deadline to submit was 10:00 our time, but no matter, I was nearly done, RIGHT? WRONG!!!!! So somehow when I went to finish it, photoshop was acting funny. I couldn't get it to do what I wanted. So I did a quick save and shut it down. No biggie. Except after it reloaded and I pulled up my page I realized that I had accidentally flattened the file and saved it over my original. And by this time it was a half hour before it was due!! Holy ____ (insert your favorite naughty word here)! There was no possible way for me to redo it, and it really looked like crap! Really. So flat with no dimension at all. So after I calmed myself down, I just decided to salvage what I could. I re-added all the embellies that were on top so I could at least add shadow's to them. And quickly jotted down my credits and journaling. I posted it in the gallery 4 minutes before the deadline. You can see it here if you really want to. Oh well. Live and learn I guess. I will never be so sloppy with my saving again.
Since my silly schedule says the Sunday's are for sharing layouts I suppose I'll post my latest.
Here's one using Dawn's awesome papers (I seriously adore them!):
You can view credit's here.
Here's one using Hol's fun kit:
And here is one of Miss Liv and me using Sara's Grace kit (Which is probably one of my favorite kits off all time.)
And the credits are here.
I feel so bad because most of my scrapping time has went towards the UDS contest. So I've slacked big time on my CT assignments. I'm sure the designers are thinking I'm not doing my part. ACK!!! Sorry chickas!! I promise to scrap a lot more very soon. And with that, I'll sign off... remember that tomorrow is "tip Tuesday." ROFL I'm such a nut.
