Celebrate Spellbinders!!!!!

I have had a love affair with Spellbinders Dies for some time and when my sister told me they were having a Design Team call, I stopped for a moment to dream about the WHAT IF?  never actually thinking that I would try out for such a cream of the crop team.  As I started to go about my business, my sister said, aren't you going to try out for it?  My reply was "Oh I'm not worthy"...well needless to say after some prodding from sis I took the plunge and came up with a project, I really loved.  Once I had hit the submit button I was proud of the fact that I had tried...and then to actually see on THE SPELLBINDERS BLOG today that I am one of the first round finalists...I was speechless....then I actually got up from my seat and jumped up and down.  Yes I realize I sound like a four year old on Christmas morning, but that is truly the way I felt.  I can't tell you what an honor it is to be in the company of some of the premiere leaders in the papercrafing field...WOW!!!  I feel so blessed to have made round's truly such a HUGE honor.  I look forward to sharing my project with you in the future, but for's TOP SECRET.  All the finalists have been given another challenge and then we're onto round two.  I'll have to be sure to bring my best game....and get my fanny in gear.  This would be such a dream for me, but just making the first round is amazing in and of please say a little prayer, send some creative thoughts this way and look forward to hearing more in the future.

I really love the way this page turned out.  I was feeling extremely uninspired on Saturday but really wanted to scrap I sat down and before I knew it, I had completed this layout, and I love it.  It's got such a unique feel to it, just like my sweet little Tin Man. 

I used the following products for this layout:
Tim Holtz Inks
Sizzix Die
Tim Holtz: film strip ribbon
Webster's Pages Paper
Dimensional Elements / On Target from Close To My Heart
Webster's Page Vellum
