I Tried My Best...

but I wasn't one of the 30 to make it to G 45's second round :( I'm a little sad, they are such a great company. The competition was so tough!!! Seven are on their design team presently (you're allowed 2 terms but you must resubmit like everyone else) a nice chunk are designers or instructors of some form. I know sounding like sour grapes, that's ok, I gotta lick my wounds a little bit ;)  It stings some to put yourself out there and not make it.  I take solace in the fact that they came back to my blog twice to see my work, that little map on the side comes in handy for something! The projects that these winners did was just off the hook crazy good.  As I perused the competition to see what I was up against, I knew that the ones who made it would.  Just insane goodness the talent that's out there.  I won't let this discourage me though, I'll try again next year. In the meantime I'll use this as a learning example and continue to hone  my craft using one of the most beautiful products in the paper-crafting industry :)

On a side note I changed the closet hanger I was using for my paper. This one is much sturdier for my stash as you an see...

Get a load of this cutie, my grandpuppy Gizmo.  He's 13 wks old now-


  1. Sorry you didn't make it, Paula, but glad it gave you the chance to challenge yourself. You made some beautiful, amazing things for the audition!

  2. Oh, and cute pics of Gizmo! He really does look like the gremlin, Gizmo!
    And the Animal tag is a nice touch!
