Stamping Royalty News

Finally.... I can share my big, big news! Keeping this news a secret for 3 days is such a torture!! :)

Did you see THIS announcement on Paper Crafts blog?? Yep..., yep...  you read it right... yours truly has been crowned as Paper Crafts 2012 Stamping Royalty.



This Monday, when I saw the email from miss Kelly I think I almost hyperventilated.  My heart was just thumping and I squealed like a mouse when I called hubby, who for the few days before kept hearing me asking if he thinks I am going to get picked. LOL, and being a good hubby he would say of course you would and I have to give him credit for saying, "Congratulations your highness" the moment I squealed the news to him.  Hah... Love you, honey!! And, I did share the news with my mom and my siblings right away. Keeping something like this a secret... yikes... I could burst if I didn't tell anyone. ;)

Thank you, thank you, thank you Paper Crafts for choosing my card. I am so honored.

I put my heart on the cards I made and I reminded myself during the process to stay true to my style, which is clean, cute & cheerful, and not to worry about the result. Which is easier said than done. Many times I am tempted to go fancier, to do more. Glad I stick to my style, because the one that get picked is the clean, cute, & cheerful one.

I am very thankful and grateful that one of my goal for this year has came true. I feel like walking on a cloud and still pinching myself to make sure it's real. I cannot share the card that made it since it'll be publish in Paper Crafts later this year. So, how about sharing this card that express my gratitude to the Paper Crafts people and to all my family & friends who always cheering me on.




And, when Paper Crafts asked for a recent pic of myself, I was looking at my pile of pics from CHA and I notice that at Lawn Fawn photo booth, I chose to wear a crown for my photo prop. What a coincidence! :) Maybe subconsciously I was doing positive affirmation. Heh..., I do believe in positive affirmation and I even have a vision board, which I am delighted to say that many of the stuff that I put in there has come true.

Thank you again for letting me sharing my news. I am still grinning like crazy. :) Have a blessed day everyone. Hugs....
