Yay for Creating Keepsakes!

Now that I don't work at my LSS anymore and I don't teach anymore, I've been trying to find ways to motivate myself to use my supplies. As many many know (and a few may be shocked to learn), I'm a procrastinator. Yep, that's right, I need deadlines in order to accomplish anything. I've tried to train this "talent" of mine right out of me, but well... it just hasn't happened. So lately I've taken to participating in online challenges. Specifically I've been trying to do those sponsored by my favorite scrapbooking companies (interpretation: those that I have tons of product from and therefore needs to use most).

Recently I participated in a Creating Keepsakes Blog Challenge for "Blue Ribbon pages" based on their  September 2010 issue of Creating Keepsakes. Because, hey, I've got a few of those, right? :) I submitted my last two (well, truth be told, only two) State Fair themed pages, one a Blue Ribbon winner and the other only a White Ribbon winner. I was pretty stoked when a CK Editor, Brittany Beattie commented on my page (delight in the little things right?) but I was even more stoked when an e-mail from Kim Jackson (Sept 2010 CK Magazine article on page 87 with "Show us Your Blue Ribbon Pages" contest call out) appeared in my inbox to tell me I had won! Woot! Woot! :)

So this past week my prize box came...

And inside were some lovely goodies (mostly October Afternoon, my favorite!)...
