I got a wild hair and decided to try to put together five layouts for the Making Memories Masters competition.
This is a big event. Scrappers from around the world compete for the MMM in hopes of landing a lovely prize package and a chance to work for Making Memories magazine for a year.
I basically have a snowballs chance to win. But I thought I’d give it a shot anyway because I need another reason to bang my head against the wall.
I came up with what I thought were brilliant ideas for layouts while hanging around the pool in St. George last week. I took some photos, did some sketches, bought a few items of chipboard, and even collected some red blow sand for one of the ideas.
But I am vastly disappointed in how the page turned out. If I wasn’t making it for MMM, no doubt I would be pleased, but I just don’t think it is a prize winning page.
I finished up a second page today. I’m a little happier with it, but again, I don’t think it’s going to win prizes.
Perhaps the most frustrating thing about it is I can’t post my pages ~ if I did I would be disqualified.
I still have about a month to come up with some prize winners. The contest doesn’t close until the end of July. But I’m just not seeing myself doing my best work.
Now if I hadn’t posted the Djin in the flowers page, or a couple other pages I really like, I might be able to use them.
Alas, I’m a praise hog,
