Reaching for a dream

I found out recently that I am one of the Top 20 Finalists for the Stampin Up Artisan Design Team Contest!  What a complete shock and super honored to be named among those other creative and talented 19 ladies!
I created this page just a few weeks ago after I sent my submissions to SU. It reflects on how I felt about just even completing my goal of trying for the contest. I was so thrilled with myself! I received great support from my family, my girls at the Scrap Cabin and my friends that do Stampin Up. My biggest support came from my friend Monika. She was my second opinion when I doubted something. She gave me encouragement each step of the way. I poured my creative heart and soul into each of the 10 projects. I can wait to share with all of you soon!
Now I have made the Top 20 with my first time trying!  Wowsers!  All my work will be on display for all 5,000 Convention attendees to see!  Oh my golly geez weez! Freakin out! I will find out on July 19th if I made the Top 10 and a position on the Artisan Design Team for a whole year!  I am excited to go to Convention this year and experience all this with my friends!
No matter what happens, I am glad that I did the contest. It has sparked something in me and that spark is not going out anytime soon!
Thanks for stopping by!
