2nd Scrappinmoms Idol!!!!

Last Saturday, October 4 was a major blast for me and 9 other finalist for the 2nd Scrappinmoms Idols here in the Philippines. And until now, I still could not believe what happened that day!!! This experience has be overwhelming for me and this is one event I will cherish forever.
I would like to thank the Scrappinmoms for organizing such an event that showcase Filipino scrapping talent. I know planning for these was not an easy task and I thank you for rendering your time and effort in organizing this.
So to continue my story... We had the Idols finale last Saturday. We had a day of fun, shopping and chatting with our fellow scrappers. Then in the afternoon, its time for our final challenge. 10 of us were sitted on 3 tables to scrap for 3 hours given a kit of materials to use.

After 3 agonizing hours using the Challenge Kit (4 AC patterned papers, buttons, beads, 3 sets of ribbons, Sinamay trim, velvet ribbon, chiboard shapes, and a glittered x'mas fern) here is my finished entry....

and guess what....

I won!!! here is a pic of my prize!!!

And at last, I can now post my LOs and project for the Idols...
Elimination Round - Create a layout using the sketch by our Scrapbytes Resident Sketch Designer, Em Magpoc

My take on the sketch...Round 1 - Repetition of Elements. We were asked to make a party set with this design concept in mind.Round 2- "A Color is a Color is a Color" Design Concept: Color Theory & Harmony We were asked to use only the colors Violet, Orange, red and Green with 5 different sized photos!

Round 3- "A Day in the Life"
Design Concept: Direction & Movement
Round 4 - "Layers of Me"
Design Concept: Dimension and LayersRound 5:"Supersize It!
Design Concept: Balance & Symmetry

Round 6:"SIX and Counting!"
Answer the Question: "Why Do I Deserve to be the Next Scrappin’ Moms Idol?"

Thank you very much for this wonderful opportunity!!! This is really a dream came true for me!!! Thanks so much!
