So, here is the 'Inspired By' photo that we were all given as the starting point for our final round of cards:
OH MY GOD, right?! Like, you would never see so many similar, bright colors in my cards! LIKE, what am I gonna do?! Here's a little secret, I usually work fast. Like, really fast. Every Friday, when the new theme is announced, by the time the West Coast girls wake up, I'm usually done, lol. But, holy moly, this super bright bling bling photo here, as beautiful as it is, was kicking my butt! Man, I thought to myself, I am so screwed. I was all sorts of stumped! I had an idea, but because of the colors, executing it proved to be quite difficult. Forget noon, this took me multiple tries and it took the WHOLE day. By the time I was finished, it was way past 10 PM!
Okay, okay, I know, shut up and get on with it already!
*GULP* here it is...
Tell me you like it! Tell me you love it! Tell me I need to get a grip!!!
I tried REALLY hard to stick with the inspiration photo. Not sure if it worked. Well, whatever the outcome, I am proud of myself for reaching Top 5. I even had ice cream all week, something I swore off when I discovered my post-baby muffin top and put myself on a diet. And yum it was goooooOoOood!
Because I can be a big, mushy dork, I wanna let you know that I am floored by all the love and support I've received from everyone. Over the weekend, I was surprised to see how so many of my friends were so into voting for me. (I didn't think anyone cared, lol). The funniest was on Saturday when I met up with a friend for a playdate. The first thing they said to me was "Congrats". I looked at them, puzzled. I thought to myself "Why are you congratulating me? I'm not pregnant. Wait, am I?!" (Haha, I know, I am so dumb). I managed to ask "Uhm, what for...?" And she said "your contest!" OoOooh, "THANKS". I didn't even know she was aware of the contest!
Anyhoots, that pretty much sums it up. I've lost brain cells over the contest, but I have gained so much more. This post is super unfiltered, hahaha... but, yeah, THANK YOU!
