They like me? They really, really like me?

Wednesday, when I was having a "Vitamin D deficiency has me down" kind of day, I decided to do some very important computer work from the sofa. This included writing up some blog posts and processing photos of some layouts I'd done for the Two Peas in a Bucket CHA Challenges.

Because I was in such a hurry to do nothing, I actually didn't get them uploaded to Two Peas until Thursday.

Well imagine my surprise when I headed over to the gallery Friday night for a little creative eye candy surfing and found that my "Yankee Doodle Girl" layout was in the top 3 by "most liked" and by "bookmarks." Last time that happened the page got requested by CK. Perhaps I should check out their current calls. (Hmmm... do I dare hope for a similar future?)

Oh wait, the Tim Holtz layout actually went to Tim Holtz, so it'll be a little hard to send that one off for publication unless I make a replica. Anyway. Moving on.

I of course immediately shared the news on Facebook because well, without any kiddies (furbabies or otherwise) it's just about the only exciting to happen in my life that's worth sharing. Well, that and when I catch Lance out with Betty. But really, that hasn't been exciting since I caught him on our anniversary last year.

Then my good friend Linda pointed out that I actually now had 2 of the top three layouts by "most liked" and by "bookmarks." Which I, of course, had to screenshot for posterity and share with you here.

Whenever I receive positive comments on my challenge posts, I always secretly wonder if they're sincere or just the challenge hostess(es) being nice.

I don't know why, but I'm always surprised when people actually like my work. But then, aren't artists supposed to have a healthy dose of self-doubt? I'll have to think about that one.

By the time I finished this post I'd been bumped, but it was fun while it lasted!

Yes, Betty is the motorcycle.
