cbs12 dream wedding contest--please vote

Oh my this is more of a roller coaster ride than I ever imagined. We pulled out to as much as a 2000 vote lead over the weekend and now we are back in second place. I stayed up until 3 am last night and watched it happen...sigh. We are not giving up--the contest isn't over until June 20th. Please take a few moments (every 12 minutes would be ideal-grin) to vote again and again. We'd also appreciate if you post links on any bulletin boards or lists that you use. If you can vote from work--we won't tell.

Thanks again for all your support. Wow, we are awed and honored to have collected over 17,000 votes by Monday morning. If you lose the link, or are in the grocery store making an announcement on the PA just direct others to www.cbs12.com or to my website where there's a link at www.nachattin.com

Our appreciation is monumental. Blessings to you!

Norma,

I don't know you or your fiance, but am a scrapbooker from NY. Saw a post on two peas and have had my family voting continuously. We have rallied all groups we can think of. You are now in the lead. We won't let up on this either. Love, love, your story. The best to both of you. Please keep the faith. We are doing all we can. This is posted everywhere I can think of.

Scrappers of the world unite! I read about you on Jen Lowe's board and have been breathlessly following the peaks and valleys of the contest since then, voting whenever I can. I posted on my local scrap group. Time to go vote again and post on some other groups. (You know, when you pull this one out, we'll all wanna scrap the wedding photos :))

Norma,

I don't know you or your fiance, but I am from theknot.com P&E Board. We had Katrina (your competition) come over trying to solicit votes for herself and her fiance, but when we came and read the stories, yours stuck out so much more than hers did. We all began to rally to vote for you. We hope you win and please know that the P&Eers are pulling for you and voting every 12 minutes!

We may be UK Scrappers, but we've rallied members from around the world, and we have a thread following the 'numbers' all the time.

Such is the power of the scrapbooking community! We're all planning to keep it up over the next few days.

If (sorry, WHEN!) you win it would be great to see a photo or a LO on UK scrappers.

A great story, here's wishing for a great prize, to start a great life together.

I am from UKScrappers and loads of us are voting for you. And NOT just because you are a fellow scrapper!!
Your story is wonderful - a real love story - to find each other again after so long - and to find love with each other again - wow! I adore your last line - about the first boy you kissed being the last man you will ever love - that is so moving!
Heaps of luck!!!!

Norma, your story is making me really proud to be a scrapbooker! I can't believe how many scrappers are cheering for you, it's like a little underground network of women who love paper & glue, all pulling together. I for one am damn proud to be a scrapper!

Norma & Henry,
"WE" (the 100s of scrappers on our forum) have been voting nonstop and will continue until we reach victory!! I love your story--I have been married to my college sweetheart for 18 years and I know that connection you are talking about!
Congratulations on finding your way back to one another. Can't wait to see those wedding pictures!

alismyhart said...

I found out about your story from a post on twopeasinabucket.com. I am thrilled that you two have found each other after all these years. May God bless both of you. I've been voting for you for the last couple of days. Please let us see some scrap pages after you get settled after your dream wedding. ;)

ann said...

I don't know you, but I found a thread about you on 2peas and must say your story is the best out of all of them! I cried while reading it. :) I really, really hope you get it!

WitchyBex said...

another UK Scrapper here been voting all week for you. Your story is so romantic. My childhood sweetheart died 15 years ago when I was just 18 so I will never have the chance of a beautiful love story like yours.
I wish you both all the best for the beautiful dream wedding that you are so going to win xx
