Almost the last of the Artisan Award Projects


As you all know, I was extremely disappointed to not be an Artisan Award winner at Stampin’ Up! this year. However, while at Convention a very exciting thing happened. At Awards Night, Stampin’ Up! posted the names of the Artisan Finalists and I was one of them! I didn’t expect it and was SUPER excited.

I know, it’s kind of like being a bridesmaid and not the bride but I was happy to know that my creations weren’t that far off. Also, I found all but one of them on display for other demonstrators to view. 

My most favourite project was there (and I’d forgotten to take a picture of it before I sent it) and I took a couple of quick shots of it. I’ll post those in a day or so. 

In the meantime, here are a few of my last entries from this past year:
