The third time was NOT a charm

Well, Hall of Fame calls have come and gone and my phone did not ring today. This year there were only ten winners, as opposed to the 25 of years past. Also, they are not naming any honorable mentions this year (at least that's the scuttlebutt) when they have had 50 of those in prior years.

So, since the odds were dramatically lowered, and I totally sent my best work ever in this time, I like to think that had it been a 25 winner/50 HM year that I would have gotten something. But I'm happy. Not worried. Not even on a scrapbooking kick right now (thank goodness).

So, instead of recapping my favorite Conference talk (which was the original plan) I thought I'd share a few of my very favorite layouts from my entry here. I won't bombast you with all 9 layouts and I won't be posting my project. And I'll post my thoughts on Conference on Wednesday. Just keep in mind that I am not so good at scanning things well.

I guess I have a lot of favorites. I do like the 3 I'm not posting okay, but not in love with them. Enjoy!

  1. I love the Sophia snow and Chloe butterfly ones. Beautiful. Inspirational. I don't know what those "Hall of Fame-ers" were looking for if not that. :)

  9. Well, my personal opinion is that they were crazy not to pick you. I think you did a SMASHING job, and your pages are eye candy.
