Wish me luck!

It is official... I bit the bullet and got it done!! 20 layouts, an article, and a HUGE supply list have been sent off overnighted to Creating Keepsakes... for the Scrapbooker of the Year contest.

I kept finding excuses, put it off, hee-hawed if I should do it or not... kinda decided not. My mom said "If $10,000 can't motivate you, what can?" I said well only 5 people are chosen as finalists. Good ol' Mom comes back with "And you have as good of shot as anyone".

Ya know, she's right (yes, mom, I admit it!) Why not me? If I didn't do it I would never know what would have happened. From here it is out of my hands... either way I feel like I accomplished a lot! But nobody is allowed to call June 27th (on or around)... that is when CK calls! :)

*Check that off my to-do list!!

14 friends had to say...:

We wish you the Best of Luck! Not that we think you'll need it. You are very crative and deserve to be rewarded for all your hard work!

You are so creative and talented that I'm sure you a great chance!!!! Can't wait to hear if you come into some $$$ soon!!!! GOOD LUCK CANDI!

Marion said...

Actually I think your chances are not only as good as anyone's, your chances are better than most--especially mine! She is right though, if $10,000 doesn't motivate you, what will? You know how smart Moms get as you get older... I tell my kids that all the time. Good luck, I hope you win!

Good Luck! Although, I just wished Penny luck too. Didn't know you were entering too. Maybe there will be a tie, LOL!? Like I told her, I thought about it, until I read over all you have to do. WOW! I'm not quite to that caliber. But you sure are.

Hee-Hawed? Really? People say that?

Lynn said...

Patty said...

Good for you! Good luck! Everything I've seen that you've created has been excellent. Here at work everyone is very impressed with the scrapaganza book.

Penny Smith said...

OK seriously... I think I reply in my mind, think I typed it, and then I look and think-HEY, where is my response?? :) LOL!

Your stiff competition lady!
I'm with Charlene-a tie, with 10K each AND 2-2year contracts!! :)
