I decided a few weeks ago, to "throw my hat in the ring" so to say, and try out for Teresa Collins new design team. I love Teresa and all things Teresa. I always have. I was excited when I was chosen as one of the finalists. Lots of well wishes from my very supportive friends made me smile.

The final decision for the team came out this afternoon. I was not chosen. I will admit that I am a bit bummed out, but I know not everyone can be chosen. It definately has not detered me from trying again and I continue to be creatively obsessed...ha!

I do want to share the projects that I submitted. I have to say, that they are some of my favorites that I have done recently. I seem to always favor what I am working on at the
moment. I had the idea for this LO before I even knew about DT tryouts. I recieved a few of the papers from Teresa's Celebration line in my September Scarlet Lime kit and I loved them immediately! I sketched out the LO that eventually became this:

Every year we take a trip to Brookdale Farm in Hollis, NH to pick apples, get our pumpkin and get a pic with the 'Big Scary Scarecrow'. Teresa's 'Family Matters' line was perfect for our Fall family pic:

Last, but not least, was this album that I put together for a co-worker friend that recently got married, using the 'Mr. and Mrs. line. She and her hubby love it and this makes me so happy. That is what it is all about!

I wanted to share something that really made my day today. Coming home to some surprise 'happy mail' from my sweet friend Jonnelle. Lots of pretty Fall goodness. Thanks sweetie! You're the best!
As always lots of fun sketches coming up at Let’s Scrap. I also finished some 'White Christmas' tags for a tag swap I am participating in. I will share soon!
Happy Scrappin'!
