Why should you be Miss American Dream? What will you do to benefit America?

Because I have talent and am very versitlile. I am a very quick learner and I put my all into every thing I do. If I was to win MAD, I would help with the homeless, making sure that the government gave more to those in need.

Why should you be Miss American Dream? What will you do to benefit America?
I think that I would be prefect for Miss American Dream, because I have come from a family that has had nothing, and has struggled our whole lives. My family taught me the worth of good hard work, and working towards your goals and dreams, and now my family has done that. We live a pretty decent life, and have achieved the 'American Dream' with the little white picket fence and everything. What I can do to benefit America is to remind everyone of work ethic, and remind them that if you put your mind to it, and work hard at it, you can achieve anything. I think I would be a great role model.

Oh and if you leave before the end, I'm sure you could ask one of the Mods or another Simmer to take over the rest of the contest. If you PM Boolpropped and ask her if she could take over the contest towards the end, she might do it (I said might), I'm pretty sure all you would need to do was send her the Rounds that are during that time, and how the judging works.

Why should you be Miss American Dream? What will you do to benefit America?

I have overcome many obstacles in my life and can help others achieve their goals and dreams even though their start in life may have been less than wonderful. I was an abused child and lived in many foster homes growing up. Because of my background and experiences my focus will be teaching America to value their children and educating the people on parenting skills. Just because you are able to physically make a child does not mean you are equipped to raise a child. These children are our country's future and deserve the very best.

Why Should You Be Miss American Dream? What Will You Do To Benefit America?
Being from a wealthy family, I always had everything I could ever want. I feel its time to give back to people less fortunate than me. I have been passionate about helping animals in distress from a young age, and i hope as Miss American Dream i could somehow bring awareness to this. I would also like to start a free model camp for girls less fortunate than myself so that they too can achieve they're dreams.

I should be Miss American Dream because I am an american dream. I am multi-talented as I write,sing and model and being able to pursue my dreams freely is what this country is all about. I think Im already benefitting America by showing young girls that you can follow your dreams and become who you've always wanted to become. I think I could further benefit America by being a voice to young people and a positive role model in whatever industry I happen to make it big in.

Welcome girls, Welcome to M.A.D. During this competition you will live in the Big Apple. You girls get a room in this luxurious Westin New York at Times Square Hotel where you may live your life as a queen! http://wirednewyork.com/hotels/westin_times_square_hotel/ Now is the first day of the competition and round 1 starts NOW! So enjoy!


Time

The future is such a Sci-Fi and a beautiful world. With many people and many different things such as hover cars, automatic sinks, Room screen TVs, Anti-Aging and also the Matrix. The past is the time to revisit, revisit those good times, those bad times. I know this may emotional to some of you but now it is time to remember who were before you came into the big city.


Task One:
In task one I want you to be outside the square because this task features you in a futuristic city wearing futuristic clothes (or anything else will be fine) you can be a futuristic female spy, pilot, superhero, anything! It’s the thought that matters. You are allowed to have items, jewellery, make up. The main colours would be black, silver or blue (purple is okay). YOU MUST HAVE AT LEAST TWO OF THOSE COLOURS IN YOUR PICTURE. This can be a waist shot or a body shot BUT NO HEADSHOTS.
Here is an example : http://img242.imageshack.us/img242/7733/alisonei9.jpg
Requirements
• Colours required Black, Silver, Blue (or another shade of blue) must have at least two of these colours.
• The Size is 640 x 480
• Waist shot or body shot
• Contacts are allowed!
• Items are allowed
• Jewellery, make-up allowed
• Other sims [u]not allowed[/b]
• Must put your Sim’s name somewhere in the picture.

Task Two:
Time to revisit those times where you thought you had nothing special and it was just a memory. Even though you may feel the pain of all those memories flashing back you will then realize that all events of your past had lead up to where you are now. You should be proud of where you are. Since I don’t know about your past here is what I basically want you to do. Do a photo of your past it can ONLY BE A BODYSHOT!!
Requirements
• Bodyshot
• Sim must be doing something and not just stand there.
• 640x480
• Light make up only!
• Items are allowed
• Other Sims are allowed
• Borders allowed.


Okay here is the criteria
All of the points will be out of 10
• Effort
• Show of Personality
• Appearance and Setting

"I had nothing."

http://i149.photobucket.com/albums/s61/SabiVideos/desert.jpg


Confessional

1) What was your past like? Well, I come from a family with a lot of brothers and sisters. I am one of seven children, being right in the middle. My father was an electrician, and my mother stayed at home with us kids. We moved from place to place, from state to state, always following the next job my dad had, and always leaving everything we had behind. I don't think I really ever stayed in one place for longer than a year, and I was always the new kid. At one point, we lived in a two bedroom trailer, My oldest sister had already moved out, but we had 6 kids sleeping in one room. It was tough, but there was always people to keep you company. I grew up on very little, practically nothing. It really makes me appreciate what I have now.

2) What kind of devices would you think will be in the future? I believe that the whole 'bigger is better' phase we have in our time right now is going to fade quickly. Soon, every device is going to be microscopic. Going to the movies will just consist of us closing our eyes and accessing a microchip inside us via thought. Scientists are already working on it right now, and I see that happening here very soon. Not that I really like the fact that a little computer will be in my blood system, but it will eventually be mandatory.

3) Are you girls ready for round 2? I'm thrilled and excited! I really loved this round, working on the future shot was so much fun, and the past shot was very emotional for me. I'm excited to see what all is in store!

Task two

Confessional

What was your past like?
From a young age I always felt lonely,coming from a wealthy background ment my parents were always away from home,attending to business affairs. I was never deprived of anything and was always well looked after and cared for, however I longed for a sibling to play with. My loneliness became apparent to my parents and they decided to give me the nearest to a brother or sister, a puppy which I named Bella. She was like my shadow and my best friend as i grew up.

What kind of devices would you think will be in the future?
I think we can't even imagine what the furture will hold. Technology moves on so quickly that we'll probably be able to take holidays to the moon and use hover boards which get you places at such high speeds that you'll never be late again and with the flicker on a eyelid you'll be able to turn off a light switch.

Are you girls ready for round 2?
Of course! I just hope I get through to the next round.

TASK ONE - Future
http://i217.photobucket.com/albums/cc50/tlawblique36/jhanella/mad-rd1-1.jpg
I'm dressed as a police officer/super hero from the future. I believe all law enforcement is gonna be done by superheroes in the future. Don't you? The colors black, silver and purple are used.

TASK TWO - Past
http://i217.photobucket.com/albums/cc50/tlawblique36/jhanella/mad-rd1-2.jpg
I was a rock star in footy pj's and pigtails. I always imagined my bedroom was a stadium and I was performing for millions!

http://i217.photobucket.com/albums/cc50/tlawblique36/jhanella/mad-confessions.jpg
1) What was your past like?
Typical story of a sheltered youth and a child eager to become something bigger than the small town she's always known. I was raised by a single mom and am an only child. My mom always told me to go after my dreams and she's always been my biggest fan. She's still rooting for me and I plan to make her proud!
2) What kind of devices would you think will be in the future?
I think there will be hover crafts and space boots(as seen in my first pic)! Realistically I know everything is gonna be about advancing technology, more computerised activities, and robots for everything! We're already half way there.
3) Are you girls ready for round 2?
I'm definately ready for round two and I hope I make it through. I can't wait to see what's in store for us. Gotta make my mom proud.

TASK ONE
http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p63/goforfink/Sims%202/TEGANcopy.jpg

The future isn't such a bright place, there are unknown dangers lurking around every corner. Spectacular beasts you could never even imagine, the highest trained supervillians in the galexy. And I... I protect the people, best i can with the weapons I have.

TASK TWO
http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p63/goforfink/Sims%202/sim1copy.jpg

My past, just a fading memory of time spent at my parents summer home. Frolicking in the forest, one with nature. It was such an innocent time.

CONFESSIONS

What was your past like?
Before my father died, he was a well known business tycoon, spending his days making deals and working on proposals. We never spent much time together, but the time we had is well remembered. My mother, the alcoholic housewife, never had time for anything other than booze and her 'high society friends'. I was raised by the nanny, Clarence, who to this day remains a close friend. Don't get me wrong, I had a fantastic upbringing, the best schools, the best clothes, all the toys i could ever want.... But none of these things are quite the same as a parents love and affection.


What kind of devices would you think will be in the future?
Hopefully cell phones will still be around, I know I sure couldn't live without mine! I can see the world moving on into hover cars and intergalactic travel, and hopefully teleportation.... looking good after a 14 hour flight is difficult for the best of us!

Are you girls ready for round 2?
Ready??? I was born ready!

What was your past like?

My past is very skant, after my parents died in an accident when I was 9, I really don't remember anything that happened, because I shut myself down. They were my world and taken from me at such a young age, that is how I coped was to shut out the rest of life. I did live with my Grandmother, up until a couples of years ago, but I do know that I made no friends because my Nan had no money to buy the littlest thing for me which was really hard.

What kind of devices would you think will be in the future?

That is a hard one. With the technology of today, anything is possible.

Are you girls ready for round 2?

Sure am...It is going to be great, if I make it through that is.

1) What was your past like?
Unfortunately, I did not have the past little girls dream of. My dad... never knew him. My mom was obviously under a great deal of strain and pressure and did not know how to deal with her children. My brother and sister and I were often at the receiving end of her many physical blows and verbal abuse. We eventually were taken away from her and I spent many years in many different foster homes.

2) What kind of devices would you think will be in the future?
From a purely selfish side - how about self-cleaning toilets? What working girl needs to spend time doing that? I do think that "green" will be the new great concept - from household items to transportation modes.

3) Are you girls ready for round 2?
I'm very ready! I'm eager to explore all the challenges awaiting me.

Just here to say that Round One will be finished at midnight Central US time (I'm in New Zealand so that's whats easiest for me, and also it's the only time zone I know in America :P ) so that gives 8 hours to hand in or complete your entries. I'd ask for an extension, but I feel like it would be unfair to those who have managed to meet the deadline, and are eager to start the next round :)

BTW - every single entry looks great!!

What kind of girl doesn’t go out with make up? Every girls wants make-up even when its light or heavy. Now you girls are going to do a commercial on a make-up brand like America’s Top Model Cycle 6 contestants which can go from Furonda to um….. Jade! Here are the tasks

Task 1: You are the director of your model and you are getting a still grab of your model as she is doing the commercial you are to have two pictures one of the model walking during her advertisement and one as she does the final pose (waists hot) saying the slogan of your product, you must have the product in the picture, either on a table or on your model’s hand. Both the model and the product stand out. The image size is the same size you did last round. Here is some inspiration (well not very good ones lol):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEpUCamt3V4

NOTE: OTHER SIMS CAN BE IN THE PIC SIMS ONLY!!!

Mini-Text Task: You are to type what your model says in the advertisement. The advertisement has to SELL the item!! Remember to add the slogan at the end.

Task 2: You are now to create a poster of the item you advertised like this http://webdoc.gwdg.de/edoc/ia/eese/artic20/piller/rimmel.jpg.
http://www.terrierman.com/parishilton.jpg
This must be in poster format with Text and the item. Your sim must wear something commercial like all those posters if you decide a bodyshot. If a headshot your sim must have make-up on and make it look like the one advertised. It can be a white background or anywhere else. Good Luck!

Great round but I have a couple questions;
does the item have to be something from covergirl or do we make up our own?
does it have to be makeup or can it be for hair or nails like in the pic?
can the walking shot be hip up while the still shot is waist up?

tru0001
16th Jan 2008, 3:10 AM
1. Any make up brand.
2. Nailpolish can be ok but just those kinds of stuff like hair spray and all that.
3. Walking shot must be body shot!

http://i149.photobucket.com/albums/s61/SabiVideos/comm1.jpg

"Final Pose"

http://i149.photobucket.com/albums/s61/SabiVideos/comm2.jpg



Mini-Text Task:


A girl can take hours, even days to find just the right dress for a party. When it comes to my make up, I just don't have the time to decide. That's why I love Perfection concealer. It takes all the time out of deciding what to put on my face, because with Perfection, I know I can never go wrong. It's the perfect make up for anytime, especially when I want to stand out in the crowds.

"'Blend in to Stick Out. That's Perfection."


Task Two:

"Perfection Ad"

http://i149.photobucket.com/albums/s61/SabiVideos/perfectionad.jpg



Confessional:

How do you feel about the contest so far? I really am enjoying it. I haven't done editing to sims photos for a while, and I the tasks are really great for getting back out there.

What improvements should there be? I think everything is fine.

How do u feel when tru0001 will not be able to make it at the final round? Well, I understand that people have to put real life ahead of Sims life. I know I do sometimes.

Did you like Task one or two? I liked task two better, but that is just because I really like Ad making.

CONFESSIONS

how do you feel about the contest so far? I have to say I really am enjoying the creative side of this contest. I'm new to photoshop, and working it out along with creating pictures with my sims makes the game a lot more interesting.

What improvements should there be? I don't see any room for improvement at the moment.

How do you feel when tru0001 wont be able to mae it at the final round? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! People have lives, its not the end of the world, but it is sad you wont see the end of your own contest.

Did you like task one or two? I enjoyed them both. Getting the poses i wanted for task one made it challenging, and I liked the creative aspect of task two.

"With all the action going on around me, I'm still the main focus. You wanna know my secret? It's Simbella's GLITZ shimmer eye shadow. It has just the right amount of sparkle so you're never just another face in the crowd."

http://i217.photobucket.com/albums/cc50/tlawblique36/jhanella/mad-rd2-2.jpg

"So whenever you're ready to truly stand out remember GLITZ. It will give you the glamour. Why be cute when you can be bella, Simbella."

How do you feel about the contest so far?
I've enjoyed the tasks and I like the freedom each tasks gives me to come up with my own creative ideas.

What improvements should there be?
Improvements? I think you're doing pretty good so far. I can't think of anything to suggest.
*Thought of something- It would be good to have a solid number of judges so we can know what to expect. Also, a total score would be nice.

How do you feel when tru0001 wont be able to make it at the final round?
Its fine. As long as the contest is still properly managed and left in capable hands I don't see a problem.

Did you like task one or two?
I liked both tasks but I preferred task one because I like that you gave us the opportunity to think about how the model would sell a product in a tv ad and not just in print.

How do you feel about the contest so far?
The assignments have been different and fun to do. It's always nice to be able to do something new.

What improvements should there be?
So far I don't see any need for improvements although it would be nice to see the judging comments before it's time to post entries in the next round.

How do you feel when tru0001 wont be able to make it at the final round?
If I were tru0001 I wouldn't like it but I think as long as the replacement host has communicated with tru0001 everything will be fine.

Did you like task one or two?
I liked them both equally since they were requesting a different slant on the same idea.

The story behind her past made me giggle (the bit about the porchupine and everything) but I was confused about your futuristic picture, it looks kinda medieval-ish. I love her facial expressions though.


Mabel Staten:
Effort: 9
Show of Personality: 6
Appearance and Setting: 9
Total: 24
The pictures are gorgeous, but I didn't realize it was the same woman from your application pictures. Maybe a bit more personality in her face? I know it's hard and I'm probably the wrong person to be judging on this (since I have a horrible time doing it myself) but I felt that it was the only thing :)


Ameria Hemire:
Effort: 9
Show of Personality: 7
Appearance and Setting: 9
Total: 25
I love the pictures, I really do and I feel like you put a lot of effort into your entry. There is a lack of personality - as I said before, it's hard to have sims portray their personalities in pictures, but maybe give a hint of their personality into the way they answer their questions (??)


Jhanella Jay:
Effort: 10
Show of Personality: 10
Appearance and Setting: 9
Total: 29
I absolutely loved the expressions on her face - Jhanella comes across as kind of goofy to me and maybe a bit of a actress (??) The picture of her as a superhero always brings Mighty Mouse to mind. Keep up the great work.



Tegan Emerson:
Effort: 7
Show of Personality: 8
Appearance and Setting: 8
Total: 23
I know maybe a bit prejudice but I love the whole Final Fantasy 7 thing around her future shot (since I am a huge FF7 fan), but the selecting around her hair is a bit choppy.


Angelina Devoreaux:
Effort: 9
Show of Personality: 8
Appearance and Setting: 8
Total: 25
The colors are absolutely gorgeous but the pictures are a bit sharpe. Great job though :)


Deena Brown:
Effort: 10
Show of Personality: 7
Appearance and Setting: 10
Total: 27
When I was looking at your futuristic pic, my hubby comes up behind me and says, "oh cool, that gothic city looks awesome!" To be honest, I didn't know what it was at first but after realizing what it was, you had done a marvelous job on the pictures - you can tell you put a lot of effort into it.

1. How do you feel about the contest so far? I have enjoyed the freedom of creativity given in each round.

2. What improvements should there be? The only slight improvement would be the judging side of this contest. But the Host is doing an awesome job.

3. How do you feel when tru0001 wont be able to make it at the final round? It is a little disappointing because Tru has done such a great contest and should be able to have the pleasure of announcing the winner.

4. Did you like task one or two? I liked them both, but my favourite has to be task 2. Creativity was something that we were allowed to do on our own, which is a great thing with such a competitive group of ladies.

Confessional:

1. How do you feel about the contest so far? I am really enjoying myself. The tasks allow you to get creative and do something different.

2. What improvements should there be?
I think everything is going well.

3. How do you feel when tru0001 wont be able to make it at the final round?
It's a shame tru won't be able to finish the contest but as long as there is someone else to finish off the job, everything will be fine.

4. Did you like task one or two?
I enjoyed task one most, especially the future picture. It was nice to see everyones different views of the future.

So the only way to do so is with photoshop eh. Aww well. And thanks for the welcome :D

Just because you don't have a photo editing program, doesn't mean that you can't enter any of the contests. There are quite a few contests that come out that don't require any editing, or that even restrict you from editing your photos. Just use you paint program to make your photos the right size, and you can also do a very little bit of editing with that, but nothing major, like lighting effects and layers and such. Don't let not having a program limit your creativity.

There is a program called 'Gimp' that has quite a few features like Photoshop, but it is offered for free. You can download this freeware here. (http://www.gimp.org/)

Hope that helps!

Okay guys since there was one person who didn't finish their entry Will9525 had been eliminated.

From ~Charlotte~

Okay: Tegan Emerson scored the lowest with 47/60 points. But there is a tie between Sable Ford and Alison Dance - both scored 50/60 points. Were you after two eliminations? I guess it's up to you to do the tie breaker

I have decided that Tegan has been eliminated! Hope to see you next year *hugs* Now 2 judges have added their scores. If you want to know your contestant's comments and scores please PM me.

Final Round.

It is the time that we depart… the time where Alison will depart, but don’t worry you have ~Charlotte~. Now The final round is called The American Dream

This will be one task but a very important task because you are representing. This is the main thing we want you girls to have, the American Dream. *hugs each and every girl* Now this is your final task


1. You girls are to make a magazine cover for Miss American Dream. YES YOU MAKE A MAGAZINE COVER! You must be in the front page and you must have test and Miss American Dream in huge writing. It’s just like those Dolly, Girlfriend Magazines in Australia you give all you got in the pose! Hairbrushing is allowed. It will be about 1/2 the size of an A4 piece of paper.
2. You are now to represent the state you came from in America. If your model is not from America you can select a state. You have to be wearing an outfit similar to the fashion or style in that state such as Texas with the Stetsons hat and a vest and you know Cowboys (lol). It must be a bodyshot and you must have that state as an opaque background.
3. You are now to represent a girl. Such as a normal girl, nerd, blondie, sporty girl, baby, posh, scary, ginger and you must be at the place where it suits what you are meant to be at the task. You can’t be at the mud reading books can you? It’s a body shot.

FINAL CONFESSIONS:
1. Who do you think is going to win this competition (except you)? And why?
2. What had been your favourite round so far?
3. Do you want a cycle 2? Who do you want to host it (~Charlotte or tru0001)?
4. If so what improvements do you want for Cycle 2?

*Good luck*

Just to let you all know - this round (Round Three, the Final Round) will be due on January the 27th at midnight, Central US time. There will be no extensions for this round. For some reason I thought this was going to be the second to last round :D

Scores will be accumulative, which is why, I guess, the scores haven't been displayed for Round Two. However, I can post the comments up if you like?

Sorry but I don't understand. The sentence "You must be in the front page and you must have test and Miss American Dream in huge writing." What does "test" refer to? Also the sentence "It will be about 1/2 the size of an A4 piece of paper." Don't have a clue what that means. Can someone enlighten me?

You girls are to make a magazine cover for Miss American Dream. YES YOU MAKE A MAGAZINE COVER! You must be in the front page and you must have Miss American Dream in huge writing. It’s just like those Dolly, Girlfriend Magazines in Australia you give all you got in the pose! Hairbrushing is allowed. Your picture will be around 600 x 400 pixels - don't feel like you have to absolutely stick to these dimensions, you won't be penalized if you go a few pixels (50 or less) over.

I think where she wrote the word 'test,' it was a type, and meant to put 'text' in there. Here is an example (http://i149.photobucket.com/albums/s61/SabiVideos/simogue.jpg) of a magazine cover I made, I think that's the general idea.

TASK ONE
http://i217.photobucket.com/albums/cc50/tlawblique36/jhanella/mad-rd3-1.jpg
Being on a magazine cover has always been a dream of mine. I guess that's what the Mis American Dream competition is all about-making dreams come true.

TASK TWO
http://i217.photobucket.com/albums/cc50/tlawblique36/jhanella/mad-rd3-2fx.jpg
I love New York City! It is my new home and I couldn't imagine living anywhere else. It's fast paced, high fashion and fabulous! Its the norm to see a gorgeous girl-such as myself-hailing a cab at midnight wearing a stylish trench and designer boots on the damp manhatten streets.

TASK THREE
http://i217.photobucket.com/albums/cc50/tlawblique36/jhanella/mad-rd3-3.jpg
If I was one stereotype it would be the 'Party Girl'. I'm always going and always putting on a show. The party doesn't start until I arrive!

FINAL CONFESSIONS
1. Who do you think is going to win this competition (except you)? And why?
I think if I couldn't win Maybel or Ameria could win because they had very good round one entries.
2. What had been your favourite round so far?
My favorite round was the second round. I enjoyed creating a brand and creating my own advertisement for it. It was something new and different.
3. Do you want a cycle 2? Who do you want to host it (~Charlotte or tru0001)?
A cycle two would be cool. It wouldn't matter who hosted it as long as they did a good job.
4. If so what improvements do you want for Cycle 2?
I'd like to see more thorough judging and maybe a fourth round as well.

Confession
1. Who do you think is going to win this competition (except you)? And why?
I am going with Sable Ford. She is just stunning, and has been exceptional with the given tasks.

2. What had been your favourite round so far?
I really liked Round 2. I had alot of fun with doing the Cosmetic ad.

3. Do you want a cycle 2? Who do you want to host it (~Charlotte or tru0001)?
I think a cycle 2 would be just as fun as this one, so yeah, I would like to see cycle 2. I think they are just a great as each other, so I cannot pick.

4. If so what improvements do you want for Cycle 2?
The only thing I would like to see improve would be the judging side of the contest. Other than that, I have had a blast.

I think either Sable Ford or Jhanella Jay, both are beautiful and have produced some stunning entries throughout the contest.

2. What had been your favourite round so far?

I think I have enjoyed this round two the most, being able to invent and advertise my product was fun.

3. Do you want a cycle 2? Who do you want to host it (~Charlotte or tru0001)?

Another cycle would be great, as for who hosts it I couldn't choose between the two, both have done a great job.

4. If so what improvements do you want for Cycle 2?

Possibly the judging.

Ok everyone, judging is complete and scores are in:

WINNER: Jhanella Jay

SCORE: 156
Charlotte: Round One was my absolute favourite with Jhanella; I felt like she couldn’t do no wrong. There’s something about this sim that I love so much, I think it’s the personality that she gives out in all her pics and now I feel like I’m reading about a real person. You’ve done well in this contest and I wish you the best in any other contest you participate in.
xJOFLx: I love the colours used for your magazine! And the other two were simply stunning. Well done!

SECOND PLACE: Angelina Devoroux

SCORE: 151
Charlotte: When this contest first started, I didn't really notice Angelina, but in the last two rounds she has totally grown. How gorgeous is she? I absolutely love her face. I think you have done very well in this contest and you have produced some wonderful pictures - best of luck for any future contest you take part in.
xJOFLx: Wow, I simply have fallen in love with your two photos! The magazine cover looks slightly unprofessional, though. Apart from that, gorgeous!

THIRD PLACE: Ameria Hemire

SCORE: 150
Charlotte: I LOVE Ameria’s beautiful gray eyes - they’re always the first thing I notice when I’m going through the pics. Round One was your strongest round and when I saw those pictures I just knew you were going to be a finalist. You’ve put forward some fantastic pictures, and I wish you well for any future contests you may enter.
xJOFLx: Wow, stylish entry! Everything looked fresh and elegant, great job! The Posh photo was the best.

FOURTH PLACE: Mabel Staten

SCORE: 145
Charlotte: I knew Mabel would be a finalist from the moment I saw the entries - the pictures looked very professional and you’ve maintained the same standard right throughout the contest. You’ve done a great job and good luck in any future contests.
xJOFLx: Gorgeous! The cover was simple but it worked, and I think the Arizona one is my favourite! The last photo could have been more chic/stylish though.
