...this is kinda how I feel right now! I have good news and not so good news. Let's be positive first. This layout helped me get to the third round of ScrapStar. Our challenge was to take a photograph based upon Annie Leibovitz's work. I did this self-portrait, which, in and of itself, is an accomplishment. I had a rough day on Sunday and truly felt worn out. I wanted the whole layout to have a distressed feel and even the black flowers hold meaning. Love how it turned out and I was in the top three based upon this week's voting. Yeah! I went to bed pretty happy!

The bad news and why I am feeling alittle worn out right now, I did not get a Hall of Fame call this year. I was hoping somewhere deep down inside I would and I love my entry--I wouldn't change a thing. It just wasn't my time. I am happy for all the talented artists who did win and can't wait to see who is on the list. After hitting refresh a billion times on my computer to check the status of things, I am tired. You put a lot of yourself into a contest like that. I don't regret trying because it is all about risks. And I felt like my scrapbooking jumped a notch during the whole process. I hope that at least one thing gets picked up for publishing by them. Okay-with-it, yes. Disappointed, yes. Worn out--a little...
