This is amazing! I can't believe how well you did the crinkles in your face!

Edit: not to say your face is crinkly! just you know, the smile lines on  your nose and around your eyes!

I really like how you made it even more 3-D with the flower and leaf. You did a great job capturing the expression from your picture too!

I really love this one the best so far...it is simple and is a representation--you captured the feeling of a portrait very well and I like that you can really tell it is pasta!!

The flower is just awesome...you did a wonderful job with this challenge and deserve to win!

yours should've won!  It was by far the most creative use of pasta with an incredible artsy flair!  I love what you did!

Aw, well thanks! I really liked it Tongue The Marilyn one looks really good, I'm just not really a fan of pill addicts I guess? Lol. But I've got a fantastic piece of artwork that I would have never even thought to make if the challenge didn't come up. That great thing about craft challenges: you never come out empty handed!
