I Made It and Today It Is Official!!!!!

I am delighted to announce that today is the first day of my term as a Scrapping Turtle Design Team member. I am thrilled and excited!!!!!!! I worked very hard to get my application completed and submitted before I left on vacation in September, then I worried and wondered and hoped. I think I cried with joy when I was asked to join the team. It was so hard not to shout it from the roof tops when I first found out, but I managed to keep it a secret until today when the official announcement was made. I am deeply honoured to be a member of the Turtle Design Team. The next six months are going to be a blast!!!!!

Today was Sneak Peek day, in which we post a layout created with our Design Team kits as a preview of the big reveal on the 15th. For our first kits we were given papers by Dream Street. Each DT member received a different line. The line I received is my favourite --- Sam :) How could I not love this line? It's named after my own sweet Sam (okay, so they didn't name it after HIM specifically, but you get the idea LOL). It is a great Autumn coloured line and I love all of the fabulous owls. The line also includes adorable rub ons and chipboard shapes. Love it!!!

To create my layout I used Bazzill cardstock, Colorbox Ink, Ranger Crackle Paint in Pine Needles, Sakura Gelly Roll pen, Kaiser Craft Rhinestones, and Quickutz dies (Scallop border, Sign, Birds, Grass, and some scraps from a Flourish I used on a previous layout).

Please stop by the Scrapping Turtle blog to see the fabulous Sneak Peeks posted by my fellow Design Team members -- Mellissa, Marissa, Anne Marie, Tracey and our guest DT member Vicki. They all did a fantastic job with their kits. I am thrilled to be working with these wonderful ladies!!!!

If you aren't a member of the Scrapping Turtle forum (Turtle Soup), please come and join us. It is a wonderful place to hang out, meet new friends, and be inspired. I hope you will become a Turtle too :)
