Just call me a monkey's uncle....

I made it through to the next round on Project Scrap-Away!!! I was shocked, seriously shocked. This was the one round where I doubted what I did would be even close to good enough and was floored to have made it through. Don't get me wrong I love my creation and think it is worthy but seeing all the other creations and knowing that these ladies are so talented with scissors and craft I felt out of my league on this one. My scrapping is so different to all the other entrants that I felt intimidated, so am grateful for the opportunity to go on to the next round and wish Felicia all the best, because I have admired her work for a while now and she has amazing abilities to create. So this round we had to take one of our first layouts and re-create it. You can see all the layouts for Round #9 here and here is mine

This is the old layout I chose to re-create

and here is the new page

And then this is the other page I created but didn't submit

So with my sigh of relief I await the challenge for Round 10, we are now down to six entrants so the end isn't far away. My understanding of it all is that the final 3 have all their work, for the competition, shown to a group of judges, the lovely people who are on the sidebar of the Project Scrap-Away blog, and the winner will be chosen from that. So again would love your help in blogging for immunity, see here for more on that :) Thank you for those that continue to support me on this adventure and a big shout out to Allison for, again, believing in me when I did not :)

Righto then on to today....

Was another cold start to the day, but drier then yesterday.
