* decorated your locker with photos,

* made a scrapbook layout,

However you tell your story, if you're between the ages of 13 and 18, we'd love to see your projects! CK is looking to find your scrapbooking flava, teen style!


How to Show us Your Stuff

In Waiting also
I'd love to know when the winners will be announced, I cant find it anywhere.
when are the finalists going to be posted? :) I can't wait to see what was entered
e-mail is not working
I tried to send my pictures of my entry but the email is not working.
Emails failing
My daughter is trying to submit but the emails are
should we send multiple entries together or separate?
together or sepperate?
we can submit multiple entries? ok but do i send them one at a time or together??
Too bad it is limited to these countries
I have girls who love to create both mixed media art and digital art and are very good at it :( They would love to join the contest, but are in Europe.....
How many entries?
"You can submit multiple projects, but please submit each entry only once" Is there a limit to how many entries we can submit?
Email Address Not working
Ive tried to submit some layouts to the above email adress but keep getting a notification in my Inbox stating an error and it wont send to that email address, is there another way of emailing to you for the teen talent search?
