Well, I got booted out of my contest yesterday.
No more waking up Tuesday and scrapping I guess.
I am disappointed yes, not because I wanted the big prize, I would have just given it all away anyways. But just the feeling your work isn't good enough.
I still love that board and the people on it. I put alot of time and effort into it for almost a year now. Commenting on every Layout and staying active and chatting.
I did not even know about that contest until a month ago! I joined after it last year, I had no clue.
I always feel like I come up short.

I did join a NEW group this week and played in their ONE Hour Sketch contest and WON second place...OK technically there was no prize for second place BUT since the voting was 1 off they are giving me a prize anyways. So I guess my work is pretty good! I made this Dream Away Lo in one hour and the clouds are even heat embossed with Gold embossing powder! I am not sure what I was thinking when I decided to heat emboss and hand cut things on a one hour LO! hahahaha, the winner of the contest was a DT member, so they said next time the DT won't be able to play.

It was in Creative Scrappers! It seems to be a super fun drama free little board! If you get a chance come on by and tell them Pinky Sent ya!

Also I was approached about being on a Design Team yesterday which is pretty cool so I guess now I am officially a member of a DT.

Oh and tomorrow I will be having a BIG giveaway on my blog, you faithful readers know I have one every week! If all goes well it will involve THICKERS! BWHAHA! So stay tuned!
