So excited to be a part of the GCD 2010 Team! & a paper giveaway!

Someone pinch me – I’ve been asked to be a part of the GCD 2010 Design Team!

Friday morning when the calls were going out 1 by 1 – I was online watching the postings go up – call 1….call 2….call 3…the phone was not ringing on my end. I looked at my phone and said “ring phone…please ring” and it rang! Not even kidding –right as soon as I was done saying those words my phone rang! LOL!

I looked at the caller id and it said “Heidi Sonboul” so I quickly answered the phone by saying “are you serious”! followed by a lot of screaming and then we both started laughing. I am sure that Heidi might have thought that she called a crazy person – but I just couldn’t help it!

I am beyond thrilled to be a part of this amazing team! And look forward to working with all of these amazing and talented crafters!

Over the weekend, I knew I needed to do some more purging in my studio to make room for GCD products. I cleared out a pile of paper that comes up to my waist! I have been so lucky to have work with some amazing and generous manufacturing companies over the last few years – and boy have they spoiled me but I simply can not use it all.

Last night I was talking with a friend about what I could do with all of this paper and she said “why not have a giveaway on your blog”. Which reminded me of my promised giveaway last weekend. So here’s what I am going to do. There are too many companies to name – but I will tell you that a lot of the paper is from Scrappin’ Sports and More – however, I promise to do a good mix. I am going to fill up a flat rate box full of paper!!! And send it to 1 lucky winner this week!!!

If you want to be entered into this drawing – all you have to do is leave me a comment here on my blog before this Friday at 8am MST! I will then draw a winner using random.org and the paper will be on the way to you.

Have a super week everyone!
