be encouraged....and Thank-you KI !!!


Look at me lost in my beautiful wonderful pile of happiness!!! thank-you to KI memories for giving me enough product and awesome beautiful albums to open a small store!!!! WOW! I am amazed and feel totally blessed to have these things come my way! some products I only dreamed of but just didn't have the $$ to spend on it all ( scrap budget, y'know). I am totally digging into this yummy stuff and using it on some of my projects on-the-go NOW! This is like the set for life lottery for scrapbookers!!!

Everyone out there who scraps whether you think you are "good enough" or not ( I did not think I could possibly have a shot at this contest and almost didn't enter at all ) I would highly recommend entering the SOY contest next year!!! For the personal journey of doing the portfolio and writing the essay; for me a journey within myself to dig up the best of what I have to offer, and for the chance to be treated like a princess by CK, and then THIS! Seriously...Enter!!! There is nothing at all to lose and everything to gain, just by completing the entry. Everyone of you out there is good enough. I am not someone who has been published a lot in CK, in fact I had submitted to calls for almost a year without getting a page call until after being chosen as a finalist. I had done one assignment ( seen in Nov. CK - Ali's lucky girl article) and received an honorable mention in this years hall of fame contest, and that's it. Just me, here, with passion and dreams. and look at this!!!

you will hear me say this a lot over the next year because it is my personal motto but I just want you all to be encouraged to Dream, believe , create...in whatever part of your life it applies. For me it applies to my art; dream a dream, believe you can, and create totally unique art from the heart. That is where it's at.

blessings and smiles

I did enter SOY:) LOL I'm glad I did too. You're right, it did push me to evaluate just what scrappin' means to me and why I do it. Hopefully next year when I enter, I won't be sick as a dog. I'm sure that's why I didn't win! LOL hee hee Plus, with twins on the way - HOF and SOY material is just a brewing!
Your HM buddy,
Jill
