I'm thrilled beyond belief! I just joined BP in April and submitted a photo for each category and I have two finalists in the mix!

I viewed your portfolio -- wow!! You are not only gifted but experienced in this contest business yourself. Thanks so much for taking time to make me feel special. #10152793
