Last week I got some very exciting news!  I was a little overwhelmed, so I decided to let it settle for a week before sharing.  The news???

I was chosen for a special design team on Splitcoaststampers - an awesome online stamping forum!  The team is called the Creative Crew and they design amazing projects with Stampin' Up! products.  I almost didn't apply as I have never entered a contest (even Stampin' Up!'s), submitted a card for publication or applied for any design teams.  On the last day, I decided to throw my hat into the ring and I am so glad I did!  I am so honored to have been one of the few chosen and I can't wait to get started!

I will officially begin on May 1, but we have already been given our challenges for May.  I have to admit that I am stressing out somewhat already.  YIKES!  What have I done???  Yup, definitely freaking out a little.  But, I'm looking forward to challenging myself to step outside my box - even if it kills me!  ;)  Be sure to be on the lookout for some of my projects for the new challenges in May!

Feel free to play along with some of this month's fun Creative Crew Challenges and upload your own creations to the Splitcoast Gallery using the following keywords:
