Creating Keepsakes ~ Hall of Fame ~ 2006


skip this paragraph if you are familiar with CK HOF:
Well, For those of you who don't know about this wonderful and exciting contest; every year Creating Keepsakes ( my fav. scrapping magazine) hosts a Hall of Fame contest. This year we ( I say 'we' B-cuz I entered) were asked to put together 10 layouts -(6 assignments and 4 layouts of your own choice). They go through all of the entries and choose the top 75. The very top 25 win the Hall of Fame, and the remaining 50 recieve an Honorable Mention.

I have said so many times since completing and sending off my submission that just working so consistantly to complete it all, and doing all of the HOF assignments really pushed me to grow in my art. Somewhere during the process something just clicked for me and I have felt so inspired in my work ever since. It was such a great sense of accomplishment the day we sent my box in.
That was a great reward and a blessing in itself.


wed. was the day HOF calls FINALLY went out and I was watching the craziness in The Pub ( message board at 2 peas) I am so very excited for everyone who won the honor of Hall of Famer for 2006, how amazing! Like I said, I was feeling really great about what came out of doing Hall of Fame assignments for me, and the other great blessings that have come my way recently ( **I can't tell all yet so come back soon to find out!!!!**) so I was very content to watch the party and congratulate the winners, but then today, soon after I saw the Honorable Mention calls start ( well....re-start) my phone rang........right beside me and I really didn't think anything of it, but I glanced over at the display for some reason and saw an 801 number!.....it was Fred from Creating Keepsakes and someone else who's name starts with a J ...Joannie, or maybe Jana???( I'm so sorry , my head was racing and it didn't stick)...calling to tell me that I WON AN HONORABLE MENTION!!!!! AAAAAAAAA! I am in shock and amazed, and so very honored, I only dreamed of being published someday, this is a really cool way for it to happen. I was strangely calm at the time and just thanked them many many many times but now, well let's just say I really should calm down before writing this cuz I'm sure it's sounding a little frantic and scattered. For those who don't know me I'm ussually easy going and calmer than this......ok truth is I am always a bit of a chatterbox. But anyways.....a Big Congratulations to all of the winners and everyone who took on the challenge of entering, you have all accompolished something great! and to all the other scrappers out there I would highly recomend entering next year. It's an experience you will not regret! I know I'm deffinetly looking forward to doing it all again!


God Bless you all, and good night,
C.D.
