Oh Happy Day! Graphic 45 Design Team Announcement

I am totally floating on a cloud.  I am proud to say that I have been chosen to be a member of the 2011 Graphic 45 Design Team. I can’t tell you how much this means to me and how honored I am to be joining this elite group of crafters and wonderful paper company.  I would have never imagined in a million years that I would someday design for one of my favorite paper companies.  Graphic 45 has been right by my side since I began scrapbooking and I look forward to working with these fabulous products for many years to come.

I would also like to congratulate all of the talented designers chosen for the top 25!  I don't think I have seen a more talented group of artists.  I wish you all the best.

I know I have done this many times, but I have to thank everyone who sent me notes of congratulations and good wishes.   It really means the world to me.

Now I would like to introduce the new Graphic 45 Design Team members for 2011:

1.   Lynette Carroll - Braintree, MA
2.  Jane Tregenza - Australia
3.  Tara Orr - Canada
4.  Laura Denison - Maple Valley, WA

5. Robin Shakoor - Fredericksburg, VA - Yours Truly!
6.  Sherry Cheever - Jeffersonville, IN
7.  Michael Jack Putman and Lesley Fisher - Mesa, AZ
8.  Nicole Eccles - Springboro, OH
9.  Nancy Wethington - St. Louis, MO
10. Hilde Janbroers - The Netherlands
11. Yuka Hino - Japan
12. Melanie Forbes - Australia
13. Gloria Stengel - Oceanside, CA

Be sure to stop by and visit the blogs of this amazing team!  Just click on the names, I have provided links to their sites.

Unfortunately, I do not have photos of my final projects on hand.  I finished each project at night so daylight was not on my side.  I promise to share them with you as soon as I receive them.

Okay, I am going back to my cloud now.  Sigh.....

Was there any doubt?! No, I knew you'd make it. Since discovering your work and your blog, I have used many of your layouts and projects as inspiration for my own crafting. Your heritage pages gave me the most inspiration and I thank you so much. I am the keeper of all family memorabilia and I work hard at telling the stories for my children and grandchildren. Thank you again for sharing your talent with all of us.
