Ok, so I redesigned my entry. The "stolen" graphic I used on my first entry was from a royalty free website (http://www.fordesigner.com), in which their copyright law was to use the graphics for your own use, just not commercially. Anyways, since somebody else used the same image in their design as I did, I decided to redesign to be more original.

In this design, I decided to incorporate an acrylic painting I had done a little while back. I took a picture of it and then used it in this new design. :)

Okay guys I also got attracted to this through Facebook, this is my first time using any serious image editing tools so be nice ;) lol here's my design, took me about 10 hours and 6 different templates, after which I decided on this:

I just have one question, where do I send the project file and/or the original size jpeg?

Sure there are plenty of other fish in the sea.
But you're not anywhere near the sea. You're in the desert. Alone.
