I Am A Finalist!!!!

It was with batted breath I viewed the Graphic 45 list scanning to see if my name was there-Lisa my friend/co-worker saw it first-"ahhh I you are on the list". My stress level was just coming down from all the frantic work getting in under the deadline-specially when my marathon blog post refused to actually post, "this is the perfect time to panic"-Armageddon. Now what? A card, a layout & an altered item to be mailed to Graphic 45 for live viewing. Congratulations to all those who also made the list especially Robin Shakoor-my design teammate from ScrapbooksPlus.

A big good job to those who tried hard but did not make the list-we have no idea what Graphic 45 is looking for so know that you are all creative talented scrappers, just keep up the great work & stay inspired. Here is a copy of the G45 post. Good luck to all the finalists-lets go get em!

Your submissions were all so beautiful and they literally brought us to tears. We had hundreds of submissions this year and it was very difficult to narrow it down to our 25 finalists. Thank you all so much for being such stunning, creative individuals. We hope to continue inspiring you with gorgeous papers and project ideas in the future and we are so fortunate to have such a wonderful crafting community cheering us on. Thank you all so, so much.
