Toot-Toot! (That's My Horn)

Ok, I've got some NEWS!  You know that Reese's Peanut Butter Cup layout I made as part of a challenge from my local scrapbook store?

Well, that "challenge" was actually a little bigger than a just- for-kicks-maybe-I-could-win-a-button-for-my-blog-or-some-cute-paper-to-play-with kind of contest.  I was afraid to admit that I was really applying to be on Remember When's Design Team.  But, guess what!  I was selected!  I made the team!

Everyone, quick!  Cabbage Patch!  Chant with me!  

"Go, Lisa!  Go, Lisa!  Go, Lisa!  Go, Lisa!"
Thanks, James!  You sure know how to party!  
  I'm sure I'll be visiting http://www.jamesvandermemes.com/ in the future for more of you!

I can't tell you how excited I am!  We had our first team meeting yesterday, April 1st.  April FOOL's Day.    I had a little pit in my stomach that I was going to show up at the designated time and be humiliated. Punk'd scrappy style.  The part of my application where I admitted to loathing glitter?  That could have been used against me in the most craft-nightmare-ish way.  {{Shudder!}}

Whew!  It has not a horrible trick!  Instead, I found a lovely group of women, a smaller group than I imagined, meaning that my being a part of it is even more humbling.  Tonya, the store owner is fun, gracious, and a talented baker.  And Stephanie, the design team coordinator, is sweet  and perfectly organized, with infectious vision and motivation.  I am so looking forward to getting to know everyone as we work together to inspire others and stretch our creativity!  

Thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity!  I'll be sure to post my Remember When creations here, and you can also check out work done by the other team members at www.rememberwhenscrap.blogspot.com and on Remember When's Facebook page.  "Like!" 


  1. Wohoo! You know I'm cabbage patchin' with you my dear friend. I can't think of a person who deserves it more than you! Love you!

  2. Yay Lisa! So happy and proud of you, my friend!:-)

    I adore the winning layout (as a lover of all things PB, just seeing makes me crave some of my favorite peanut butter cup ice cream!), and am so proud to know someone who's famous!

    The best thing about blogging is sharing in one another's success. Thanks so much for your kind words and support as I create new art and embark upon a new career!:-)

  3. Oh Lisa, CONGRATS!! I'm cabbaging, I'm cabbaging, go, go I'm cabbaging ;D So happy for you!! I know you'll knock them off their feet with your creativity!

  4. Congrats Lisa! The James cabbage patch made me bust out laughing!
