been neglecting my blog this week

but my excuse is I have been busy posting comments in galleries. Mostly the DET contest gallery at DSP, but also at JenWilsonDesigns, DigiScrapDivas and ElementalScraps where I have been posting lately since ScrapMommies closed (there is a sentance to make an English teacher wince).

I made Round 2 of the DET contest!!! I'm so pleased with myself for that! This is my third run at this contest and I didn't make it out of Round 1 the first 2 times. My goal this time was to make Round 2, so I've succeeded in my goal & anything else is just gravy. good thing too because I'm not going to make Round 3. I base that on my number of views and comments as compared to the views and comment totals of the layouts uploaded around the same time as mine. My numbers are decidedly lower. I'm a little sad about that because I love my layout & thinks it deserves as many views & comments as the others, even if I don't make Round 3. But I don't really mind that I won't move on. I've commented on the 41 layouts up already, but I am commented out for the day.

this is my layout

Stacey I think it's a great layout..the photo is a good choice and I love the squares and the title - good luck!!! (and I'm sorry I didn't realise you were in Round 2 when I commented in my personal blog I will go back and change that..) I wouldn't worry about the number of comments thing I don't think it means too much about your layout.. I think it's more to do with how many people *know* you or if you have links to it in your siggie etc... it's a really good layout you've created, that's the main thing! Good luck :)

I love this layout! It's fun and it shows off the kit beautifully! The layouts in the gallery are really amazing and just like you I only hoped to make it into round 2. I told myself I wasn't going to get so wrapped up in it that I would be depressed if I didn't make it, but now...I'll be sad when I'm 'voted out' :)

I love your layout! I'm a little hesitant to comment on DET layouts because I don't feel worthy enough to comment on such outstanding layouts. I'm still learning so I don't feel that my input is really that important or what you need. I think it is wonderful that you keep trying and don't give up! You are truly an inspiration to me who is too chicken to enter some contests at all!
