It Really IS An Honour Just To Be Nominated!

You know, it always sounds so cliche when celebrities are nominated for awards and they claim "it's an honour just to be nominated".  I've learned today though, that this really is true.  By no means am I a celebrity however, I am honoured and sincerely humbled to announce that I was chosen by Stampin' Up! as one of their 5 demonstrator finalists in their My Digital Studio Contest.  Each entrant had to make one scrapbook page and one greeting card of any size or design and submit them to Stampin' Up! by October 15th.

Today, Stampin' Up! posted the finalists (5 demonstrators and 5 customers) and have posted their submissions on to open the contest up to the public now for voting.  I am so excited to be among the company of my MDS "hero" Heather Summers.  Heather was the number one demonstrator in Canada for the 2010-2011 Stampin' Up! year and luckily she lives in the same city as I do so I get a chance to see her in action on a regular basis.  She's an amazing wife, a wickedly cool Mom to 4 great kids and a papercrafter/digital scrapbooker unlike anyone else I know, all the while maintaining such a quick wit and an informal ease with people that makes you feel like you've known her forever.

So...if you want to see some gorgeous digital scrapbooking/card making, pop on over to to check out everyone's submissions and vote for your favourites!  Voting will take place until 11:59pm MST, Friday, November 4th (that's 1:59am EDT, Saturday, November 5th for my time zone here in Ontario).

Thanks so much for voting and Happy MDS'ing!
