I'm really excited to get 2nd place. I was hoping for 3rd, having picked a layout that I thought the judges would like (based on the winning entries from last year). I'll get a big ribbon, and I have a couple complimentary tickets and parking pass for the fair, as well as winning a little money - enough to compensate for the entry fee and printing the layout, so that's really nice. My layout will be on display at the fair, July 12-29.
My other news is that I've landed a guest spot on The LilyPad creative team for the month of November. Last summer I won a guest spot there by completing their monthly challenges, and it was a really fun month. I'm excited to have the chance to participate in their store/forum again. This was the "layout" I submitted with my application to show off my creativity. It looks like a lot of work, but I actually recycled photos and extracted paper spiders from other layouts. The little "drama" that I wrote out was new, though.
