One of my dreams came true.
A dream I didn't even know I had until two weeks ago.
You all know that I digi scrap. Not exclusively, but it is a major part of my scrapping life.
I've made no secret about the fact that I have some favorite designers out there.
The Creative Team call went live on August 17th at 6:00 a.m. I saw it via Facebook. I didn't even know I wanted to be on a Creative Team. I'd never considered it before. I mean, sure, I love recognition when I do work that is worthy, who doesn't??? But to be on a team? The thought had never crossed my mind.
Until I saw HER call. When a designer who is on your top five GO-TO list (arguably even your favorite designer of all time) puts out a Creative Team call, well, what's a girl to do?
By 2:00 p.m. that same day, my application was completed and emailed.
That is, of course, when I started second guessing myself. Would my skills be good enough? What was my competition like? How many applications would she get? Was I crazy to think I had a snowball's chance in hell???? And so it went, for twelve excruciatingly anxious days. And life was still happening all around me. Nothing had slowed down while I was pondering what her very polite rejection letter would say.
As it turns out, I wasn't crazy.
On Wednesday, August 29th at 12:25 p.m. an email came into my in box. I saw it almost immediately.
After a quick perusal, I was wearing an idiot grin the size of Texas. Yes me. Grinning from ear to ear. Well, at least as far as my small mouth will grin anyway.
The email said (in pertinent part): "I think you'd be a terrific addition to my creative team. I hope you'll
accept this enthusiastic invitation to join me."
The email also said: "Please keep this news to yourself until I've officially made the announcement on September 1."
But I want to go shout it from the stinkin' mountain tops!
Thankfully, I didn't have to keep my big mouth shut for too long.
And here is my first Creative Team layout:
