Vote Now! Because YOU Decide Who "Rocked The Cover!"

First off, Julie and I would like to thank all of you for making our first Y.ou Y.ou R.ock challenge a success! We're blown away by your response and hope you'll continue to visit the blog and participate in more of our rockin' challenges!

And WoWzA, we're simply amazed by the talented card makers who took part in this challenge ... every card is truly outstanding! Thank goodness WE don't have to choose the winner.

If you had fun participating in this "Rock The Cover" challenge, we hope you'll be back to participate in our next rockin' challenge which will be announced here, and on our personal blogs, Out To Impress and Paper, Ink, Scissors, & Stamps, on August 15, 2008. Remember: everyone is eligible to enter, including previous winners, but please, only one entry per person, per challenge.

Now that all the entries are in, it's time to select the winner. And we need your participation. That's right, the winner is decided by your votes!

In the unlikely event of a tie, the challenge moderators (ummm, that's Deb and Julie), will choose a winner. Please, we beg of you ... don't let it come to a tie; Julie and I will be forever picking just one entry from this amazing field! So please, ask your friends, bloggin' sistahs, family members, co-workers, and penpals to come vote for you ...

And here's how: Notice the poll on the top right side-bar? Well, that's it! Everyone receives just one, completely anonymous vote and voting will end at midnight on August 13, 2008. You'll be able to see who's winning by checking back here for polling results ... but you can't see the results unless you've cast a vote. And with only one vote per person, per challenge, don't hesitate to cast your one and only vote for yourself!!

Because we (happily!) have so many entries, it's nearly impossible (well, with our busy lives, it is), to upload and link out 44 photographs. So, the best way to view the challenge entries is to check out the large slideshow post, below. Or, you can visit our Gallery, located HERE. You may click on any photo for a larger view.

The winner of the "Rock the Cover" challenge will be announced here and on our personal blogs on Friday, August 15, 2008. Deb's blog is HERE and Julie's blog is THERE.

If you have any questions or comments, please don't don't hesitate to leave a comment or email us; we love to hear from you!

Enjoy the slide show and thanks so much for playing and voting ... Y.ou Y.ou R.ock!

Deb & Julie

Wow, what a difficult choice!! So many fantastic entries, and so hard to figure out a way to judge....are we looking for a recreation, inspiration, use of the cover as a jumping off point, card that would best function as an album cover, best captures the feeling of that artist.....

Just about everyone deserves to win, depending on the category. And my condolences to whomever had Hannah Montana - although it's a super-cute card and well-done in many of my categories, I hate all the hype around her, and I couldn't vote for that one on principle. :)
