Boy, Round 3..., sounds like I am dragging this out way too much! Maybe I shouldn't have called the decision based on just the applications Round 1! Then it wouldn't sound so bad now! :embaresse I am really not trying to drag it out or cause you extra stress over the waiting! I am sorry this isn't going any quicker. And with that said, remember when I mentioned having to delay the contest for a few days ...well, we need to. Dawn is the "one" that is out of town until Sunday sometime (so throw things at her, not at me, OK?)! I had already told her that if she "made it" this far we would wait. But, no sense in not having any fun in her absence, right?
I think your official assignment will be to create a LO with my new kit coming out this week called Boys Love Critters. It is not necessarily just for boys, it is just outdoorsy. But I'd like to wait to give that kit to you until right before Dawn gets back so that everyone has the same time to work with it. The kit won't go up into the store until Thursday anyway, so posting the LOs Sunday through Wednesday will be great publicity for the kit. I'll post a preview of the kit on my blog so you can start thinking about what you might do.
However, in the meantime, we should vote again on another kit to give you, something already in the store. That way you can play with it during the week and show off what you can do without the pressure! How does that sound? So start the voting....
Congrats again! I forsee even more agony in my future though...having to choose just four of you will be next to impossible!
