So Excited!

Just wanted to say that this week I made the permanent CT for Nitwit Collections! I have been a fan of Mary Fran's designs for a while now and was just so happy when she asked me to make a LO for her. She liked it so much she asked me if I would like to make another. I jumped at the chance with delight!! Then, just like in a dream she asked me to be on her team permanently!!! Whooo hooo! If you haven't had a chance to check out her designs she can be found here. Be sure to check out her new Facebook page too!

Another dream of mine is being fulfilled because for the month of March, I will be a guest CT for Irene Alexeeva at Scrap Orchard! Yeah me!!! Can't wait to play!!!!
