    I entered my bag, but now cannot see it. Did it get deleted accidentally? Or, maybe I entered it wrong? It was the Aragon Military Bag.

    GREAT contest, although I always wish there would be the final pick by a “objective” person as I don’t have a personal blog to recommend myself on. Still excited though, and a great fan of hers and yours.
