Excitement All Around

The past couple of weeks have been very exciting on so many levels.

I have been accepted into Creative Escapes 2009......... that alone was so awesome. Then Graphics 45 accepted the Journey layout that I did about Bob to their Gallery. Today they accepted the following album cover that I did for Allison Orthner

An email from Tim Holtz telling me that he admired the way that I used his products..... wow talk about a head rush. Now I am sure that he says nice things to all that submit work to him but It is still pretty cool to have that personal note from him.

Then there has been the week of taking Rambling Dave from C95 to task for calling Scrapbookers "Glorified Sticker Collector's". I heard Dave say this last week on his morning show and I must admit I took exception and made sure that those associated with the Just Cre8 Community knew.

Poor Dave was challenged over and over to join this past Saturday at Leica Forrest's Saskatchewan Crops weekend. Well he finally succumbed to the pressure and agreed to join us and he logged into the Just Cre8 community.

He learned that there was a lot more to Scrapping than he ever dreamed of. I created for him the memo book below and the Attendees at Saskatchewan Crops dove in and contributed on a joint project of creating a mini album about Sam the dog whom recently crossed over the rainbow. I am honoured to be joining Sheryl later this week to present to him the finished album.

Of course I had the fun and excitement of spending the past weekend with many of my gal pals cropping and shopping and visiting (but not necessairly in the order listed). Sue and Lori joined us from Ontario, Jacqueline, Jackie, and Allison from Alberta, Jill and Laura Lee from Manitoba. I love these oppurtunities they are mentally refreshing and inspirational so yes Jackie you will be seeing my submissions to your Wonderful Magazine Canadian Scrapbooker in the coming weeks.

I feel like I am floating on a cloud with scrapbooking and where I can see some potential for growth as I sit down and set some serious goals for myself.

I hope you all have a wonderful week.
