Exciting News



Why am I screaming with excitement you wonder?

Because July 31st I got a phone call from Creating Keepsakes magazine telling me that out of 500 submissions I am 1 of 10 finalists to become the Scrapbooker of the Year!! Yippee!

The requirements were 20 scrapbook pages and one essay. And surprisingly they liked mine! What happens next? Well, I get cash and prizes for being a finalist and an all expense paid vacation for me and Collin to go to Vegas where they announce the winner at a huge scrapbooking trend show! The winner not only gets a 2 year contract with Creating Keepsakes magazine but $10,000 cash and tonz of prizes. wow. Wouldn't that be awesome!!!! Wish me luck!
