Ok ladies, I'm officially closing my contest. Thanks to the 3 ladies who entered! Now for the fun part. I'm re-posting the entries on here, for everyone to see. I'm not going to be the judge on this one, YOU GUYS are! Leave a message in the comments box and let me know who your choice is for the winner! I'll leave the voting until Thursday, when I announce the winner. The next contest will start Friday morning =)

This first entry is coming all the way from the Phillipines!
Timi O. Mercado sent me her layout this morning, and here's what she used!-

This page is so totally NOT what I had in mind for my “self-esteem building” page. I guess my muses were invading today. It IS Halloween so I shouldn’t be surprised. I have been trying to straighten up/organize my scrap room for 6 years. Yes, I said 6 years and I’ve finally realized, through reading countless articles and books, and talking to friends and my 16 year old daughter who does happen to speak wisdom on random occasions that I don’t like to scrap in solitude. I need wide open spaces. In the ACTION. Gotta see what’s goin’ on. Then it came to me that in only 1 & ½ years, Brittany will be off to college like her brother Erik and the whole house will be empty. SO, I’ve decided to go ahead, turn the scrap room into a Studio. Really make it a place I can be crafty. I am at the top of the stairs so not really out of things since I’ll be the only thing in the house, except for Rocky, the beast. If I want to scrap in the kitchen I can take what I need BUT if everything in the scrap room is where it should be and easy to find it should be easy to put away. Keep your fingers crossed.
So, what does this have to do with Jill’s challenge you ask?
Well, I like that I can think things out. It may take awhile but I eventually get to where I need to be. I’m a good listener because I realize that God gave me 2 ears and 1 mouth so I can hear twice as much as I speak. I’m supportive of the underdog because I’ve “been there done that” and am not going to let others take advantage. I’m pretty confident though sometimes I’m shaken in my shoes. I act as if….. Having 2 alcoholic parents taught me a lot. I kinda like me. I realize there are things I can’t change, gave up the high heels years ago, but I figure I’m a work in progress and I’m progressing nicely!!!

I vote for Thea.

How come Corinna's journaling isn't with her layout even though she e-mailed it to you a long time ago?

I think it's so great how you do these contests.... and I wanted to enter but I just learned out to upload pictures this weekend... Yeah, I'm technically slow, lol... Anyways, I have to tell you that I was really drooling while looking at all the goodies that you bought..... it's a darn shame that you don't live next door to me because I'd be over there wanting to just touch each new goody especially all that new paper (nothing at better than handling brand spankin' new scrapbook paper). You have AWESOME taste!
