Dream Come True!!

I can't believe this is happening!! I won Creating Keepsakes Scrapbooker of the Year! I found out last night at a banquet. As soon as they said my name I jumped out of my chair and screamed then hugged Collin and started crying! I couldn't go up to the front without hugging the other finalists who I have become so close to the past couple days. They are all so sweet and talented! I could hardly walk but somehow I made it to the stage-still crying and shaking:) I feel so incredibly blessed and so excited to get to share my passion with others! Thank you Creating Keepsakes and everyone who supported me-especially Collin:)! I couldn't have done it with out him. Pictures to follow... come to our house Friday, we're gonna party like it's 1999!

love, elizabeth

want to check out the link click here :) they posted a video of my reaction-don't worry if you can't see or hear it very well...I was a blubbering mess :)
