Yesterday I learned that I won in Colette's Lookin' for Love Challenge. This challenge is in line with the 40 Days Countdown Celebration for Beverley Todd's 40th birthday last August 8. Colette Bate is from Phoenix, Arizona, USA.
Her challenge was to post a photo of an old project that you love but didn't get much attention. And then ... the project that receives the MOST comments will be announced the WINNER.
Here is my entry to this challenge:
This is one of my favorite LO's of all time, the first ever LO I entered in an online contest. Do you remember the Challenge of Two's at Scrapbytes last October 2006? This was the entry that I submitted. Unfortunately, it didn't win. I entered this LO to other online contests but wasn't given the recognition that I hoped for. I'm so glad that this time around, it was recognized and chosen as the overall WINNER.
By the way, here is my journaling.It’s an account of my life in a form of a fairy tale.
Once upon a time, a baby girl was sent from the Heavens to the Land of Two in a castle where King Benjamin and Queen Elnora lived, two people chosen by the Divine Being to be the parents of the baby girl whom they named Maria Fatima, the Princess of the Land. Two years later, another addition to the royal family came. This time a baby boy whom they called Benjamin, Jr. Unfortunately, the Queen fell ill so there was no choice but to entrust Prince's care to the Queen's parents --Teofisto and Patrocinia in a land not so far away from the Land of Two. The Queen's two sisters, Brenda and Nerissa painstakingly took good care of Prince Benjamin, Jr.Several years passed and the royal family was already complete with the addition of two more boys - Princes John Dominic and Jerome whom the Princess played with, fought with and basically grew up with.The Princess turned out to be a fine lady admired by many because of the two qualities she possessed - intelligence and leadership. She was always on the top of her class and held top positions in school organizations. She attended one of finest universities of the land and studied Science.When the Princess was already of age, she fell in love with her Prince Charming - Danilo whom she married on the 2nd month of the year, the love month of February. After two years of blissful marriage, they were blessed with two wonderful children, James Genar and Dannah Marie. Life was not always a bed of roses for the Princess and her two children because Prince Danilo had to be away for years in a very far land for a mission. She kept herself busy with her two great passions - teaching and scrapbooking.Fortunately, two months from now, the Princess' family will be reunited for good and surely they will all live happily ever after.
