We are posting them in the thread in the Announcements section, dont worry, I was confused too when I first saw we had 2 posts for the same thing.
Here is the link for it: http://ooakdollart.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=3127

And your posts arent being deleted, they are just going on to page 2 of posts that are super long :)

And, to post in the photo gallery, to the right, close to the top of the page (right above the picture of you in this post at the top) it says "Photo Gallery" Just go there and it should have a drop down menu, at the bottom of the menu is the Summer Challenge, just pop a few pics in there and it should work :)

Hope this helps!

if you are downloading it to photo gallery there is a size requirement for you photos. if you can resize them before you upload them then it should work...
Max filesize: 1488 (KB).
Max picture width: 800 (pixels). height i think &
Max picture height: 600 (pixels). width


hope this helps

Desi,
I can see the photo in the gallery just fine, and also the pics you have uploaded in your post.
I'm going to send you a PM about opening a Photobucket account; that's the easiest way to post pics here.

Hugs,
Karen

It was fun putting that piece in to a theme like that... not the plan I had in mind while I made this dreamy sort of fair maiden ... lmao... definitely jumped out of my comfort zone on that one!

Everyone has done such beautiful work! :clap: :clap: :clap:

I am also glad I'm not judging, because for sure there would be a 10 way tie for first place. :rotfl:

I am thinking that the challenge is over. Are there anyone elses pictures that are still needing to be added. All of you are saying that you don't want to choose but who is going to vote for the winner?????? I certainly don't want to choose just one person. We were going to have you all vote on a poll. I know you all love each other but we need to have everyone vote for one piece. Hugs

Good idea, this will be an extremely tough decision because they are all so good. But, I think in fairness we should all vote on our favorites as it is not fair to designate one single person to do such a heavy task alone. :-)

Okay you are all rescued. Karen F. came up with a great idea to get someone to judge it for us. So I have asked Deb Wood and Helen (the collector) from ADSG and they both have agreed they will pick the winner for us. So I am in process of sending them the criteria and the link to the pictures and perhaps we might know by tomorrow who is the winner. Tomorrow night most likely as I am a day sleeper. So hope that is good with all of you.

Big Hugs and good luck to all of you.
Tenderspirit :cheer: :cheer: :cheer: :cheer: :cheer:

I am sending them the link with only numbers and no names so that the contest will be based on the pictures you submitted and not on who actually did the work. I think that is the most fair. I am so grateful that they are willing to help us. Yippee.

I have to say, that is most generous of Deb and Helen to volunteer their time to judge the wonderful dolls for us. It will be better since they will have a non-biased opinion of them. :-D Too hard for us to pick cause our hearts always interfere darn it! lol

I sent an email to Deb last night to let her know all the entries are in. Have not heard back yet so not sure when they will be able to get to the judgeing. Helen has Deb runnin like a chicken on a hot tin roof. LOL They are planning a cruise I believe they are leaving on the 1st. So not sure when they will do the judgeing and being they are doing it out of the kindness of their heart don't want to put ANY pressure on them. Knowing the perfectionists they both are they may have to look at them for a couple of days to really decide whom is first place. All of you have done such a wonderful job. I am so glad that I do not have to pick just one out of all the lovely entries. So we will all have to be patient and stay on pins and needles. Baby is not quite ready for her new mommy either. UGH This going to Deb's class has set me behind in everything. And my new sculp "I'm Free" keeps calling to me. LOL I am sure you all know how that is. So will let you know just as soon as I know.
Good luck to all of you and wish you could all win.
Hugs Tenderspirit I brought the little baby to the event and everyone thought she was precious. I was so happy everyone liked my work. They all gave me added confindence especially since they liked mine better than the well known artist's baby whom I purchased. That made my heart skip.
