Psst...I've been hiding a secret! :)

Last week I decided to take a chance and try out for the Jacksonbelle Embellishment design team. To be honest, I didn't think I stood a chance. There are so many women out there who are far more talented than me! Well guess what, within 24 hours I received an email saying that they would love to have me! Oh my word was I stoked! I literally screamed and called my husband (who, of course, couldn't pick up at the time), and then my mom! Haha! I felt like a little school girl but, to be honest, I didn't care!

Here are the girls who are joining me on this fabulous quest!

Kristine Breach ~ Ink Something

Tobi Crawford ~ Tobi’s Place

Dawn Easton ~ Treasure Oiler Designz

Mitzi Koons ~ Stamps Jubilee

Loretta Lock ~ Love to Create

Jimmi Mayo ~ Stamping & Shopping

Bethany Paull ~ It’s Not All Black & White

Michelle Phillipi ~ Inside My Own Private Idaho

Carly Robertson ~ Paper in Bloom

Shemaine Smith ~ Scraptastic

And we will be joining these fabulous ladies:

Lynda Benden: Stamp Act

Melissa Bove: Keepsakes By Melissa

Jennifer Buck: The Buck Stamps Here

Jill Dunn: Ink Genious

AJ Otto: The Willow Garden

Heather Lee-Reppen: Ink on my Ear

Anyway, I just wanted to share this fabulous news with all of you! I am SUPER excited and can't wait to share my creations with you! If you tried out for the team, and didn't make it, trust me, I've been there. But, I want to tell you not to give up! I have been denied MANY times and decided on a whim to try it again. Obviously the results were worth the risk! The same will happen to you someday! I guarantee it.
