    Congrats to the winners…but I have to say I am a tad disappointed with Creating Keepsakes. Those ads were horrible and very unfair to these girls who clearly ALL put a lot of effort into their entries. There was one that everytime I tried to look through them had an ad over the project and the vote button. It seemed too that it got worse as you went from the start to the end (the last two entries were almost always blocked from voting by the ads). This was really unfair to these girls! You have plenty of space for advertising, but having it pop up and not be able to be canceled over entries for a contest is really sad! I just an really disappointed you did this to all these girls who did some amazing work and all deserved a fair chance. I thought it was very disrespectful to the teens who gave you their all!

  20. Erika Hayes says:

    WOW I don’t know how anyone could pick just one.. I mean I know it was a vote thing but how did you chose which to vote for? WOW! beautiful all of them and Jordan I adore your layout and the fun buttons and details are stunning! Great work everyone!

  21. Malina Rome says:

    Congratulations that is a wonderful layout! I am also glad to see that a young artist won closer to teen than adult :) Keep progressing and growing!
