BUMMER

i didn't make it
everything i said i wouldn't feel
I DO FEEL
trying to stay positive
but it is so hard

part of me thinks YOU SUCK
and you should never submit anything
ever again -- and then the POSITIVE
side says -- get up - dust yourself off -
and have another go at it

it reminds me of a time when i was bucked off
my horse (Dutchess) and my dad wouldn't let
me just go up to the house
HE MADE ME GET BACK ON
he knew if i walked away there was a good
chance i wouldn't ride again
at the time i didn't really understand
but my dad knew what he was doing
he made sure i was OK and then with
tears in my eyes i climbed back into the saddle

So tonight I am again a little sad - I LOVE TSR
and really thought I found a place that would be
a perfect fit -- but i am gonna dust myself off and try again


CONGRATS TO ALL THE LADIES WHO DID MAKE IT
TO THE NEXT ROUND -- GO GET EM

Shawnna, you are most certainly a 'winner' in my thinking...sometimes our best may not get the 'win' but we must keep on keeping on....

don't worry about it....you are a great scrapper and truly...i think 1/2 the people who do make....nevermind...i'll be nice...you dust yourself off and try again...just please remember to not get caught up in the whole getting published mentality and forget why you started scrapping to begin with....you'll get it sooner or later....hold your head up high!!
