Yes, I was at work! My cell phone rang. Most of the time I don't hear my cell phone. In fact, the reception is poor in the building where I work. It often goes right to voice mail and doesn't ring. I happened to be sitting at my desk and my phone was in my tote next to it. My first thought was that it was a phone solicitor as the number was displayed as "unavailable". I was ready to hang up as soon as I heard the start of the spiel. What a surprise after I said "hello" to hear a voice say,
"hi, Judy! This is Stacey Caron!"
It was incredulous!
I think my mind went blank. I don't remember exactly what I said. I was way too surprised! I didn't have time to get nervous!
It's amazing I could actually finish work that day! I had a hard time concentrating after that.
I wanted to dance on my desk!! I wanted to shout it out!!!
I wanted to post it here but I promised not to announce it until today.
WOW! Can you believe it?!!!
I'm flying high!!!!
I'd love to share my final layout but I can't share it yet.
So instead, I'll show you the entries I used to get to the Top 24.
This was my card entry. If you follow my blog, you've seen it before. You'll find more info here.
I used this Santa ornament for the "altered" category. More info here!
.........and here's the scrapbook layout that I used. I haven't shared this before. I wish the photo color was better.......the background paper is actually a soft pink. I couldn't get my camera to pick it up well.
Thanks to everyone who wished me well!
Thank you especially to all the Fond Memories Girls!!! You're the best!
I never would have gotten here without YOU!
(Fond Memories is my LSS, the best in Minneosta in my opinion!)
Special thanks to my daughter and sister for inspiring me to take my final layout beyond "okay".
To my dear friend, Elizabeth, who amazes me with her creations, you inspire me beyond measure!
Thank you to my DH who puts up with my late nights working on projects.
(He'll never read this but you all know I thanked him!)
