Holy. Crap.

I was just innocently responding to some emails a few minutes ago when an Email from Jenny Weston at Making Memories popped up. The subject was MM Idol. I didn't get my hopes up....I figured it was just a newsletter with the list of 50 finalists.....but no. It was a CONGRATULATIONS LETTER! I was chosen as one of the 50 for the Making Memories Idol Contest! Pretty good for a girl who's never been published or been on a full design team, eh?!

This is one of the layouts I submitted- the one they have up next to my name in the gallery. This makes me extra happy, because it also happens to be one of my favorite layouts of all time!


So, now I have to do an 'All About Me' layout by Midnight on Sunday, and then they will have public voting to see who goes to the next round. Wish me luck, and don't forget to vote! *wink, wink* Heehee.

I too am a lurker. I found your blog quite awhile ago. I stopped coming because there were never enough pages to see, I would get so frustrated(haha). I came across something a few weeks ago(maybe zingboom) that led me back. I love your work, it is just so clean and yet so funky - simply put it is brilliant. You are so deserving. I too will be voting for you. Congratulations!
