I need your Votes!! Please!

I just received word the other day, that I made it to the 1st Round at Simple Scrapbook Magazine's "So You Think You Can Stamp" Contest! YAY!! I'm very excited but very SCARED!! LOL Only 16 people made it to this round! The first Round you have to use a stamping technique called "Stamp Kissing" on a layout.
So, here is mine! I used the technique on the flowers, butterflies, tags and the journaling spot. I also used some Bo Bunny paper, Prima Crystals, Magic Mesh and some mesh ribbon.

For the flowers, I first stamped the solid images in a light blue and brown ink. I then stamp the outline stamps in a darker blue and brown ink. Then, in white ink, I stamped some swirly images onto the petals. Finished them off with some glitter glaze and a brad. One of the large flowers has 3 layers and the other has 2.

For the butterflies I did relatively the same way only I used 5 different colors, 2 shades of blues, 2 shades of browns and some white. For the large tag, I stamped the french script background and then the tag stamp over that and the same for the small tag that says "Memories".
For the journaling spot, I stamped the round circles first in a blue ink and then in a brown ink. Then the inner lines with a brown ink. And finally, I stamped some little flowers on top of that, with a light blue ink and brown centers.

I am super excited about this. Please come and vote for me here! The final vote for this round is Monday the 15th. So please, it just takes a few seconds. My layout is titled "Remember" just click up on the top that you love it! and leave me a quick comment so I know you were there!! I would really appreciate it!!

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day! God Bless America!! 9-11-01

Hugs, Melissa
