Hi Chicky I love your page. I didn't' get one of the 'yes we love you' emails either, posted my page on my blog yesterday, but my goodness look at the list of those who did and I reckon the judges had a hard time getting 20!!! Hugs and don't let them knock you down because, like a wise lady I know said... "I am so proud of how this turned out"... Yep you said it, hold on to those thoughts :)

Nadia Cannizzo said...

Ohh Leanne! I think this is an absolutely gorgeous layout...Just fantastic and dont feel too bad. Its still only one persons opinion in contrast to so many that love your style. Hope you feel OK!..Take care ..

Wow Leanne, this is just absolutely superb. I cannot believe it wasnt in the top 20. There are some fab entries I know but this is just SENSATIONAL. The feathers and wings, that bodice, the layering, the details, OMG, this is just gorgeous. Definitely one of my faves of yours for sure. I think it's a winner anyway.
