Are you sure?

The word is out

I have been named a Scrapbooking Memories Master for 2008

Let's just say, I still can't believe it!!

When I got the call - the first thing I said was "Are you sure? Me...........are you sure?"

I am still feeling that way. I wasn't even going to enter - I didn't think I was up to the standard. It was a last minute decision and I must admit it was because, Chris and Rach told me I should give it ago. Just try...........was what they said. I worked with what I had at home. I didn't go out and buy anything, just for my projects. Poor Rach, was there with the shoulder, when I had a total melt down. Chris didn't give up, until I had sent my entry off.

I just want to say a huge thank you, to two very special people, who believed in me, when I didn't believe in myself. Thanks you to my gorgeous hubby Chris and my very special and dear friend Rach. This would not have been possible without you. And also a big thanks to my Dad, who rang every week, because he was sure, that I was going to get that call, when I didn't.

Thank you also, to my friend Joyce, who introduced me to scrapbooking, while living in Jabiru. You started this obsession in my life - thanks.

And to everyone else..........Believe in yourself and TRY!! Anything is possible

Congratulations to the other ladies, that are on that list. I look forward to getting to know you and working with you.

A huge congratulations to my friend Rach - who got several honorable mentions for her projects. I am so proud of you.

I am still waiting for my copy - I can't wait to see the real thing!!!

I've said it over and over again......congrats my wonderful friend. I believed in you all along, I am so glad I gave you a hard time, was a little pushy and made you step into the world that was unknown and unsure. Onwards and upwards sweetie.
