What a good day!

Happy day my scrappin friends,

Firstly. I did not make the top 25 team over at G45.
On first whim, I was a little sad about it.
Why not me? Where was I lacking? What could I have done better?
Was my written application dorky? uncouth? (probably. lol)

But after I actually took a moment to let it sink in, I realized I learned a lot about even submitting to a Manufacturer. I poured hours into my 10 new projects. I have two new mini books, three new pieces of altered art that look fabulous in my home, and five new scrap layouts.

And because Julie W. told me to, I plan on seeing if they fit any categories for submitting to paper magazines over the next couple of days. :)
This was just one No. Who knows how close I may have been to making the cut?
I know there are so so many talented crafty people out there, and I'm holding no grudges.
I'll continue to support and use graphic 45, because I love their product.
That's another thing. I submitted, because I DO love their product.
 I beat that horse good.. on to the fabulous news.

Today me and my she art girl was featured over on Paper Issues!
(yay yay yay)

and to add icing to the seriously sweet cake
Cassie asked if I would join the Paper Issues Team.
