Paper Makeup Stamps Blog Hop

Hi there,

Thanks for coming back!  I am sooo excited to share some really great news that I got the other day.  But let me share my story.  Way back when, I'd say about 3 years ago, maybe more (time flies you know) I had applied for the first Paper Makeup Stamps design team call.  I didn't make it.  I hate to admit it but my reaction to not making it wasn't very adult like.  I cried my fool head off!  Well, I dried my tears and loved Paper Makeup Stamps - the fairies are so sweet and Katie arranges the most beautiful word art sentiments.  Now years later, I have been invited to be a Paper Makeup Artist!  Yippeee!!!

So here's my first post for the latest release of Paper Makeup Stamps word art digis.

I love this sentiment!  How encouraging is this.  I did create my card using the sketch from Just Us Girls - it was perfect to showcase this lovely sentiment.

I do hope you'll enjoy the hop!
