Thank you guys, I'm sorry and surprised you were out Suzanne I loved your entry. I was shocked to be in the top 5 I thought I might actually be eliminated this round. My sea was too flat for surfing but I didn't use any mods to make my lot uneven and I wasn't going to download a 72 pack to get it goodness know how my game would have handled that. I loved your entry too Marie good luck in this round. I too have always been fascinated by The Titanic, I have watched this film loved it more than the modern colour one, I also have a beautiful book my hubby gave me a few years ago with some lovely pictures of the rooms and I also visited a Titanic Museum a few years a go when I visited Florida, I just hope I can create the vision I have.

Congrats to Marie and Nikki! So happy for you. I agree Marie, were I to put together an entry for this round it would have been much easier.

Suzanne, I could not believe when I saw you were eliminated! I liked your entry and according to me had the wow they were actually looking for. I too think you are brave to enter JFF's...... no I think you are all three very brave to enter.... it would be just too much stress for me!

Suzanne - I was so upset when I read you were eliminated and didn't make the next round! I thought your entry was fab and the judges are too critical! But I'm very happy that Nikki and Marie are going on to the next round. Knock'em dead, girls!

Suzanne, I think it's wonderful you're going to finish and JFF entries! That's such a great sportsmanship attitude and I applaud you for that. I myself, would probably not.

And, I definitely couldn't enter any contest where you're "judged" with a point system! I prefer entering contests for fun with no pressure, if there's voting by peers then that's perfectly fine, just don't want to be judged on something. I'd feeli I was on a reality show, I can't even watch them it's too much pressure (and the music they play when people are being voted off ... dun-dun-dunnnnn LOL)

TJ, I feel the same way. Being judged is very hard. For me, having to create something, you pour so much of yourself into what you are doing. To be judged negatively on that is breaking down a person's courage.
I always thought that when one set out to create something, whether it is a house, a room, a new mesh or a recolor, you give others what you yourself saw in your own mind. So in a way you give away a part of yourself.
I don't think I would ever have enough courage to enter the DOTY.

Fortunately, we here at Bloom, have a more relaxed way. Our main goal is for our members to have fun and to give all an opportunity to learn and grow in different ways... whether decorating, building taking pictures or creating stuff.

That is what is important!

DOTY is a big contest and lots of people enter, all other contest at the Pearl are judged by voting by members the same as with here. The comments are not negative but do feel that way if you don't agree of course but they are very positive too and are aimed at helping you improve not to criticise.
The problem with contests is that there is a winner and I agree if you are not prepared to accept that the winner is not likely to be you then don't enter. It is good practise at working to a deadline and specifications if you are prepared to take on board what people say it's good experience.

I hope Marie wins as I agree it would be great if a CBS member won, but it's not likely to be me so I'm cheering for Marie.

Why wouldn't it be you as well Nikki..you and Marie both have a great chance of winning..and both of you are awesome designers..
Getting criticized is one thing..it's how you criticize them..that really upsets me on that contest..
I have entered Forumotions Banner contests and they give you points if you want to know how they were scored and they let you know where your strengths and not so strengths are..and that helped me out on the next contests..I finally got shared 3rd place with someone else in the Easter Banner Contest..it took over a year to get that lol..so maybe next time I will come in 2nd lol..

Thank you all for your kind words and support.

Both Nikki and Marie have just as much opportunity to continue forward in DOTY and I will continue to support their creativity and efforts as I know you will <3

Persevere! :D

Thank you for believing in me Nikki but I will not win (though you never know ...) I went out for round 5 last time and thought I'd stay here a little longer this time.
I think it's good that they started with comments most of them I agree with and actually I have gotten better feedback than last year. I have two judges who give me high points and two that give me bad points (I do not know if the judges have the same number every round) But it is my own choice to participate in the competition.
But I'm struggling on and now I've read all I can find about Titanic and looked for pictures of what it looked like in the cabins.
Good luck to Nikki.
Suzanne: I hope you want to make a JFF it would be so fun to see your pictures. If not, you may want to post them here.
Sam: I agree with you to a certain extent.


Thank you Crissi for the beautiful signature

I will try to upload my pictures tonight otherwise it will be tomorrow night.
I'm not really happy with the colors (now the pictures are black white) but it still shows how dark the pictures are, I have taken sample pictures that I'm sitting and comparing so I know what photo program I'm going to use. Then it's the salon itself Is small but it will fit a lot, so there are 2 doors in the way as well.

Agreed - can't wait to see!

I'm going to post the black and white pictures for the JFF entry as well as the color pictures. It is interesting to see the differences :D

I am so excited to see what you come up with too! And, personally if it was me ... (which might considered "cheating" in a judged challenge such as this ... I'd just remove the wall and/or door  ... and anything else blocking my camera shot)

WOW! Even in "walls up mode"? Or wait, maybe those were "outside" walls that are in the way ... I have a tendency to "recreate" rooms I've seen online, so when I stage my rooms I make sure to build it to the shot I want to capture ... but then again, I'm only showcasing a particular room so I'm focusing on it and I can have no walls on certain areas without anybody ever knowing LOL

Yes - if you have a complete room, then do partial walls down, you lose side walls one one side :(

Yeahhhh I ran into that when I was trying to take pics for my B.A.D. entry, but I "cheated a little" tho LOL ... when I was taking pics under the stairs from kitchen I took the chair and table away so I'd have a clear shot and nobody knew LOL
