Yee-Haw! The designing part was educational and enjoyable compared to convincing friends and relatives to sign in to a forum. DH has them convinced that I spend my life in front of the computer -- and they think a computer is for Solitaire!

Congrats to all - I'll be using many of the kits for an album. Way cool!

Thank you - Thank you - Thank you for anyone who voted for me. Maybe I can get some sleep today and stop biting my fingernails. This is just too exciting. Everyone did such a great job. There are sooooo many talented designers on this site. It's incredible just to be a part in any way. WooHoo.

*SQUEEE* I jumped and 'squeed' so loud i scared the baby! ROFL! I really wasn't sure if i was gonna make it with all that talent! and to top it off..my net was shut off last night..and i had to make sure i could pay my phone bill 'just in case" rofl!

Congrats to everyone..y'all did a fantastic job!!!

I heard a preacher once say, There are no coincidences in the life of a Christian. I have found that true in my own life. When I entered the contest this year, I thought it would be over by the end of September. Well, silly me, I should have remembered from last year it wouldn't be. So I have been waiting to be sure I didn't make it to round two! Not because I wanted out of the contest, but because I would have had to drop out. The house we are living in is being sold and we must be gone by Oct. 1. I just can't do the contest, keep up with a couple of stores, care for my aged mother, plus finish packing and move. Won't work. So I see it as providential that I don't move into round 2.

With that said, I congratulate those who are moving to the next round. I'll check in when I can as I'd like to see who wins. But everyone who enters is a winner. I'm posting more of my thoughts on my blog today (already have it written in WP), a little of what I learned from my experience in last year's contest and the year since then. Just some hints and tips for anyone who might be interested. Again, congratulations, all.

Congratulations ladies!!! You all did wonderful work this first week! I'm so excited to see what the second week brings... :D

To all those who didn't make it.... I hope you consider joining in the side-challenge Liz & the girls have set up! I would love to see more of your work!! :)

You're all amazing women to put yourselves out there for the masses to scrutinize... I applaud you all!! Bravo!

Congrats to everyone moving on to Round 2, it really was hard just voting for 3 kits, can't wait to see what you make next. Hoping everyone else will participate in the side challenge:)

Nani
09-10-2009, 07:49 AM
Without naming names, because all the kits were so wonderful, the three I voted for all made it, which tells me I have a better finger on the pulse of the digital scrapping world as a scrapper than as a designer! :)

If you didn't make it, do stay involved in the contestants forum. You'll continue to grow as a designer and you'll still have lots of fun, maybe even more without the stress of being in the competition. I know for me, the contest as more fun last year after I dropped out.

Best of luck to everyone moving on! I canít wait to see what you come up with in round 2!

Holy Cow! I made it??? It was looking pretty bleak there, I'll have to work extra hard this week to stay out of the bottom. Will have to work on my advertising too, got to drum up some voters of my own. Thanks to all who did vote for me, it's truly appreciated. I got more votes than I expected. My condolences to those not moving on, it's a hard place to be, keep believing in your designs and keep making your kits, you never know when your day will come. Thank you to everyone who at least peeked in on my designs, my heart swelled everytime I checked on my gallery views and about burst when I just checked and saw I had 269 downloads!!!! So I'm already a winner in my head, and everyone else is too! Thank you again, and Thank You Stone Accents for this chance!

OMG - I made it to round 2?????????????? I have been in bed with the flu since sunday nite OMG - I'm not sure I read that right. Am I really in round 2? or is my fever back?

LOL! @ the shock... not at the flu!

Tell Mr. Flu that he has to go home now... you got some designing to do! Hope you feel better!! :)

sparky
09-10-2009, 12:14 PM
I feel better already!!! Neither flu, nor stuffy nose, nor fever, etc. shall keep me from designing... oh wait that's the mailman's slogan. I'm off to design, tissues by my side. Good Luck everyone!! I'm excited about the color Pink that was my Mother's favorite color and she was my best friend so this will be extra special for me whether I go on to round three or not.

I'm not too sad about not going on to Round Two. Congratulations to all that made the cut and good luck to you all.

Thanks, Toiny for allowing us to continue in the designer forum and learn some new stuff along the way.

Thanks, Liz for getting those of us not going on to Round Two a pep talk and setting up that challenge so we can follow along.

Got a question. I know this was posted for round one..but i'd like it clarified for round two. is the Kit PREVIEW allowed in our blog? just no download links..or no preview at all?
I don't want a disqualification on this account. thanks :)

You CAN put the preview on your blog, you CANNOT put the download links on your blog :)

Am I correct in assuming thatwe can put the preview on our blog with a link to the SAS Gallery and that will link to the download is that correct? Sorry if I'm asking questions already answered but I'm afraid the flu and fever I have maybe clouding my brain. lol

Congrats to those moving on. I have tried for two years and not won but I am not giving up. I really enjoy designing and even if just one person enjoys my designs, then it is worth it. I know that sounds cheesy but it's very true.

Good luck to all of you!
