The Masses Have Spoken

Well, it looks like the sepia has been unanimously voted off the island.

So long, sepia….. Thanks for playing!

But it looks like the contest isn’t over, yet, because Wandering Nana-Linda asked to see a black and white version, so I dialed it up and here it is:

Hmm, I kind of like it….. But it feels a little too detached and cold to me. What do ya’ll think?

And wait a minute–it looks like we have one more possible contestant, because Shawna asked to see the sepia with red lips, so I asked Charming how to do it, and this is what I got:

Aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! My son’s wearing lipstick!!!

(Holy smokes, is that scary looking or what?!)

So, yeah, that’s probably out of the running since I can’t look at it without getting the creepy crawlers and his father would most certainly veto it.

But first, let’s see what happens when I try to tone it down a little:

Nope. Still giving me the creepy crawlers.

Oh, well….. I was afraid this would happen when Charming said I could have my cake and eat it, too.

So, I guess that narrows it down to the original favorite:

Hmmm… that best of both worlds thing didn’t work out so well did it? :)

I like the original better. I wouldn’t change a thing.

I like the colored one the best. The lips were a little too red in the sepia but it would make a great cover for the next Vampire book by Stephanie Meyer- Edward as a young boy- just a thought.

Nope, it sure didn’t, Kara. :)
Thanks, Apple–you are always so sweet.
LOL! My son–a VAMPIRE! Holy smokes, that’s the last thing I would have thought of, but that is too funny. :)

Your welcome. I love reading your blog and seeing what little Bubbers will get into next.
To answer your question…I started my wrecked journal in January. It has been a blast wrecking it because from birth parents and teachers have been saying “Books are our friends…don’t mess them up.” I guess I liked being a little defiant with this one! Ha Ha

Awww… I don’t think the sepia one should be “voted off the island.” I still like it! It depends on what you’re going to use it for!!! :)

I vote for the original – it’s fabulous.

yeah, when you mentioned putting the red lips on the sepia, I thought it might look a little odd!
