What a great idea the MM Idol contest is! Congrats to everyone that's taken part you have all been a real inspiration.

And while I'm at it; is there a chance that MM would consider making a burgundy red (or any red for that matter) Runway collection?

Designers: All of your entries have been amazing! But how often do you change your mind (if at all), on the design once you have started?


Thanks!

This has been so fun to follow, and it's great that the tasks aren't all layouts either. Kinda gets on out of their box with the other creations too. Best wishes.

This contest has been inspiring and exciting to watch.

One question thatI would like to ask designers is how do they approach creating a layout typically? Is it with photo they love, chronilogically or are they inspired by product? Or all of the above?

Thanks!

Wow - this was really tough to pick a "winner" - you all rocked this assignment.

My question is for Wilna - did you use the new shimmer kit to make your hats (the favors )? ...I definately need to get my hands on that stuff :)

Wow! All these are fantastic! The tree garland is a really cute idea! And by the way, where did you get that pink tree? Is that a Target item!?

You all did a wonderful job and I want to wish you luck!
It's great to see all these new products coming from MM!!

Congrats to all the designers I just love all of your entries it was hard to vote for just one of you!

My question for the designers is - are you enjoying the challenge of the MM Idol contest or are you stressed out?

Kerrie - kgurney@pacific.net.au

My question for MM is are you ever going to bring out a non traditional christmas range example pink,purple & silver ???

Any chance the designers would develop a line for product (red)? I love MM products and it would be awesome to help others at the same time.

I can't wait to use the shimmer kits....I have 3 daughters and I am sure I will have to hide these when I buy them.....but, I must admit I am really into these for added sparkle and to make the page pop!

MM Idol is such fun..
How much time during their week do designers devote to scrapbooking?

Do you scrap in the Day or Night?

Thanks

I would really like to try a Retro/rustic approach to some Holiday photos that I have. What is the best crackle medium to use in scrapbooking.

Oh wouldnt it be fun to try shimmer paints with a crackle medium to achieve a retro/rustic look.

Good luck to all of you your entries are amazing.
