I've got so many mixed emotions tonight about this. One one hand, I'm super excited my name is in the top 50 for the Memory Makers Master contest, but on the other hand, I'm horribly disappointed I didn't win. I really felt like my layouts were the best I was capable of, yet it still wasn't good enough. But on the other hand, I have so much on my plate right now, that it's a nice thing to not to have to worry about, but on the other hand, it would have been so darn fun. I can't really begrudge the people who won though, because they are mostly names I recognize and are extremely talented. I just feel like I won't ever be able to compete, and that's a sort of depressing feeling. At the moment, I'm not sure if I want to give up trying to be published at all or if I want to work my guts out and take the contest by storm next year. Ug. I think I will be in a better spot in a few days.
Anyway, I'm posting links to entry here, but shhhhh, just in case I'm not supposed to do that. The "Nutshell" layout is probably my favorite layout I've ever done. I'm not posting the last layout, the one we had to send in, just because I think there is a good chance it will be published by them, and basically they own it already anyway.
