Ultimate Summer Challenge: FINAL CHALLENGE!


Yeah!  The time has finally come for the Final Challenge for BHG Scrapbooks, Etc's "Ultimate Summer Challenge."  My album is up, and the voting has started!  :)  The assignment was to make an 8 page mini album about myself.    I approached this challenge by not thinking of what others would want to see, but by doing what I wanted and making it personal to me...after all, it is a book of me. :) So I am pleased with the way it turned out. It is an 8 x 8 acrylic album with two smaller pages thrown in to mix it up a bit. I like doing this (adding smaller pages in a book) because it makes it easily expandable...I don't have to have more of the acrylic pages to keep adding to the book.

There are lots of pictures to come.  :)  Click on any of them to make them even bigger.  First I will show you the pages by themselves, and then you will see them in the book.  
 






This one has a spelling error in it.  I did fix it, I just didn't take a new picture.  :)


So there are the 8 pages.  Here's what it looks like all together:






I hope you like it as much as I do.  I am a little worried about this.  Usually I think a lot about what I am going to do and then spend a lot of time on it, making sure it is perfect.  This book came together SO fast for me.  I just threw elements on a page and moved to the next one.  :)  That worries me a little.  

So, if you like the album, PLEASE GO VOTE FOR ME!  I need the votes, the prize is $2500!  You can find the voting here.   And pass the word along!  :)  At least, let's get people on there voting for what they like best.  VOTING CAN BE DONE DAILY UNTIL SEPTEMBER 20TH.  So come back and vote again tomorrow.  

And thanks to everyone who previously voted for me and who is voting for me now.  You rock!  :)

Pamela..I got your email. I came over to check it out and it is beautiful! I will put up a post about it this weekend!

Pamela...I was just checking out all the entries for the final. I wanted to tell you personally that I really like your entry. I'm very glad you did what YOU wanted to do not what you thought people wanted to see. I think yours is one of the best. I'm a little partial because my friend is in the final and I'll be voting for her and I do think her work is excellent as well. I really don't want this contest to be a popularity thing...but...anyway...thank you for stating your beliefs about being a Christian...I am one too. I just wanted to leave a note of encouragement and say your work is really good. ;)
Good luck!

Hi Pamela, Great Book! Love the color choices, designs, pics, etc. I'm totally new to digital scrapbooking so would enjoy being pointed in directions for a newbie and inspiration. I put up a page on my blog - so I welcome feedback.
