I'm a Go-to Gal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Someone pinch me!

Today is the day that I can finally share with the world that I have been selected to represent Paper Crafts Magazine as a Go-to Gal!  Here's the official announcement over at Paper Crafts Connection!

Insert squeals, screaming, jumping up and down.  Any super excited emotion you can think of, I probably had it!!!  OH. EM. GEE!!!!

I've started this blog post what feels like a million times and each time I've had to walk away because I am still completely speechless.  Again, someone please pinch me!

Just to be considered as a potential Go-to Gal was such an honor!  Never in my wildest dreams did I think it would ever happen.  There are so many talented ladies in the paper crafting world so I really just lived for the moment and had fun with it.
  
There are moments in your life you know you'll never forget and getting that phone call and the emotions shortly after definitely fall into that category for me.  Eek!  I still get shivers just thinking about it!

To say I'm excited is an understatement! I'm bursting at the seems with anticipation for everything that is to come and want to extend the biggest thank you for the bottom of my heart to everyone who has supported me along the way and to the team at Paper Crafts for selecting me!


Congratulations to  veteran Go-to Gals Betsey Veldman, Kim Kesti and Teri Anderson and to my fellow rookie Go-to Gals Laura Williams & Kimberly Crawford.  I am so honored and humbled to be in the company of such crafting greatness!  I look forward to finally meeting you all.  Let the fun begin! :)
 
So, with all of that said, I thought I'd share a card. :) Hopefully you're still with me!
This card uses the newest Avery Elle release, Petals & Stems, and to celebrate this special day, I have an Avery Elle Petals & Stems stamp set to give away!  

Thank you Jamie, owner of Avery Elle, for sending me a giveaway without knowing what it's for! (I told you it would be worth it!)  Just comment to enter, you can subscribe to my blog or follow me if you want- although it's not required to be eligible to enter.  I'll pick a winning comment on Monday, April 1st.  

Thanks for stopping by and sharing in my exciting news with me!  
XOXO!
 
Supplies:
Cardstock: Avery Elle: Fog, Ultra-smooth Pure White. Papertrey Ink: Melon Berry.
