I'm trying to finish it up right now! I got the deadline for this mixed up with a different deadline! But at least I'm about 3/4 finished at this point and not barely started.

I have to track down the rest of my supplies. I've just got a few more things to do to it.
Like you said, if it isn't finished in time, I'll still submit it to the group :D

Tracking down supplies must be a bit of a hassle. Esp since you live in the country.
I'd be honored to have it in the group :)

Our puppy chewed up a piece of my project. Now I have to remake it. Shouldn't take long though. I should be able to post it in the morning (or rather later today).

Puppies, eh? I swear, I love pets but they are so destructive. My cat attacked my layout pages (for some mad cat reason) so
you have my complete sympathy :hug:

I've got her made except for her hair and dress. My black yarn is missing and I don't know what I want to use to make her dress out of.

Sure, as long as it follows the rules of the competition and is about a Skins character or characters, that would be absolutely awesome :D

Well, as it says in the journal, the contest is for Skins fanart/ fanfic. You can read Skins here at Deviantart lj-phillips.deviantart.com/ or at it's own site here skinsarmy.thecomicseries.com/
Skins is a horror webcomic and the contest is for fanart or fanfic of the characters that feature in the comic. I hope that helps :)
