That’s Craft Warehouse Design Team, in case you aren’t in the know.  YES!  My baby sister, Christy,  just found out she is one of the ten women who were chosen for the Scrapbook Design Team from Washington, Oregon and Idaho.  Isn’t that so cool???  Here is one of her layouts that she submitted:

They had to send in 2 scrapbook page layouts, 2 cards and some other non-card or page craft deal to show their versatility and creativity.  So, she’s on the team for eight months and will be given supplies to create six projects that will be used in stores for examples and in their advertising online and in mailers.  So cool.  But that’s not the coolest part…. she receives $500 of scrap supplies for her own use…. BUT it’s with a 20% off discount… so I’ve already figured it out for her husband, Brian… THAT’S $625  worth of bling bling goodness.  I’m so proud of her!  And I’m so glad our mother taught us to share.

Some background is needed here so you truly understand the importance of this moment.  I was the creative child with the glue-gun on my belt.  I lived for visits to Craft Barn. Christy was born with a microphone in her hand.  She sang her whole life and claimed that she wasn’t crafty at all.  Her degree is in Vocal Performance.  My minor is Art.  Christy didn’t do a crafty thing until she was forced to after she moved away from Mom and I.  Then, like a butterfly emerging from its cocoon, Crafty Christy was born.  She started designing greeting cards that were sold to the public in stores.  And her scrapbooking was transformed from the stickers and wavy scissors to what it is today… gutsy, bold and blinged.

And to think that I taught her all she knows!  Oh, it makes the tutor so proud when a pupil reaches such grand heights.
