today is like Christmas......



for the Scrapbooking community.... its always soooo fun to sit at the computer/refreshing threads and watching all the anon tooting take place....and watch all the drama unfold! Not to mention the staring at the phone using telepathic powers trying to make it ring... c'mon Fred and Lisa.... call ... call.... (for the non scrapbookers, I will translate.....)


This is Creating Keepsakes magazine Hall of Fame winners call day/week.....


It is always sort of confidential yet we all find out once calls are beginning.... You are not allowed to post /toot until all announcements have been made (which sometimes is weeks!!!) so everyone signs on as an anonymous screen name (HOF wannabe no more etc)


This award is like a gold medal for scrapbookers... the highest achievement and really does make or break an artist once chosen.... very elite, very cool.....


I of course, have no expectation of getting a call but enter because my scrapbooking improves 10 fold every time I enter any big competition.... and it can't hurt to try right?


One of these years, I know I'll get an honorable mention (not to shabby either...page published in the book and visibility!)


What is the coveted prize?????? ?Well, the most important is the visibility and title.... CK 's reputation is top notch and they pull special calls for the team and publish HOF alot (give first priority to submissions, not to mention all the sponsored goodies (like 2000$ worth) and that my friends, is alot of product!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!





Well, one can dream.... and the greatest part is that so many of my design team companions will get the call ----so very exciting....


may have to stick some chicken in the crock pot so I don't miss out on all the fun.....





ps. don't even think about calling me today unless its urgent (lol) I'm gonna jump out of my skin every time the phone rings and be very disappointed when it isn't CK! lol (been there done that before, that is how I know! lol)

and what kind of IRISH person am I to forget to wish you all HAPPY ST PATS.... or as Erin (who was dressed kind of Christmas-sy) was saying all day....

Happy Leprachauns day!

Peace,

Kim

I am always impressed with those that take the initiative to submit to HOF. I don't have the guts or self confidence. I hope you get a call... Fingers crossed for you!
