A Dream Come True!

I won the Guest Star Stamper contest for December on Papertrey Ink!  This month I was asked to be the January "Guest Designer" as part of my prize package.  I cannot begin to tell you how honored I am to be acknowledged by the best in the business.  This truely is a "Dream Come True".  My complete sample design, directions, supply list as well as full photos will be included with the purchase of the template through http://www.papertreyink.com/ on January 15th. And, it's only $5.

I would like to add a big "Thank You" to those of you that visit my blog and leave such sweet comments.  I can't tell you how much you encouraging words mean to me.  Another big "Thank You" to my "real life" friends as well as my "cyber friends"  who are always so generous with taking the time to let me know you are reading.

I hope you like my sample and can't wait to hear what you think.
