the sting of rejection

I don't normally share much on my blog other than my stamping and scrapping projects but since I already shared about my hopes of making the CX DT, I guess I should follow up. I did not make the team again this year. I won't lie. I was extremely sad and disappointed, but I know in my heart that it really is for the best.

Rejection stings, but it also has a way of motivating me like nothing can. So after drowing my sorrows in a chocolate milkshake, I got busy working on a few stamping projects and working off that milkshake on the treadmill. (did you know that a chick-fil-a chocolate shake has 760 calories?! WOW!) I managed to finish up a few layouts for Simple Scrapbooks contest "So you think you can stamp" but I'm not sure if I can share them here yet. I can share with you a card for this weeks Lizzie Anne Designs sketch #42. Its a bit hard to see in the photo, but I stamped one of the smaller flowers from the Jolies Fleurs set in Versamark and clear embossed it.

supplies used:
stamps: Lizzie Anne Designs Jolies Fleurs, PSX
cardstock: Prism kraft
stickers: Target foam stickers
paper: Scenic Route
other: ribbon

LOVE this, Wendy! Great color combo too.

I can't imagine why anyone wouldn't chose you for their design team!?! You're one of the best stampers in Blogland!! Their loss, that's for sure!

Chin up; everything happens for a reason .. it'll be apparent soon enough. Then write them and say, "nah, nah, nah, na, nah!" Like I do; I'm 12.

LOLOL, did I make you laff?!?

I just knew you were going to make it. I'm in shock! You were on my dream team list, lol! Nothing would make me happier than to be on the team with you. This must mean that something bigger and better is waiting for you....I just know it is!! You have so much talent, your work is beautiful and you're the biggest sweetheart! Whoever you design for will be LUCKY to have you!!

I am so so so bummed, Wendy. You MUST try again next year. Sometimes it just takes awhile. I think that your cards and LO's are incredible.
