Oh My! Oh My! Oh My!!
The most wonderful thing has happened!
I just got selected as a
2008 Design Team Member for the Scrapbook Zone!

I am soooooo freakin' excited! The Zone is the BEST scrapbook store in the greater Detroit area and I absolutely adore shopping there. I have always been so impressed with their design team - the pages and the projects they do are so fabulous. I have been waiting for months for their design team call and when I got it in the January newsletter, I immediately started working on my project and page. I tried not to get my hopes up because I was sure with all the really talented scrappers in this area that I wouldn't get picked. So, I didn't obsess about the date (yesterday) and when I didn't get a call, I figured I didn't get picked. {Yesterday was such a bad day at work AND I still can't find my keys!} However, this morning, I went to open my email to send my sister the Breast Cancer picture and there was a message from the Zone with a subject "You made it!" It's sad, after the rough week I'm having, that my first thought was,"This better not be a special sale notice!" So, with a deep breath, I opened the email which read...

"Congratulations Jana,
We voted and we'd like to welcome you to our Design Team for 2008!

I will get back with you soon about when your kit will be ready. Again,
we are excited to work with you over the next year

--Warm Regards, Kelley and Kevin The Scrapbook Zone "


My breath came out with a whooosshhhhh and I jumped up to do a happy dance around the room. I even woke my kid up early (it was about 6:30am) to tell her my special news and that she better be ready for mommy to take even MORE pictures of her. She just smiled and said, "Mommy, can you turn the light out? I want more sleep..." AHAHAAHAHA Then, I grabbed the phone to call my best buddy, Tracy (who's birthday is today ... "HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TRACY!!!") to tell her that I got picked... and then called my husband who is excited for me but bummed out because he couldn't be here tonight to do something super special to celebrate. I can't wait to tell everyone the news...

I am soooo excited!! {Can't you tell??!?!?!} I can't wait to meet the rest of the team and work with Kelley and Kevin... This year is going to be soooo exciting! If you want to check out their site, see the left side of my blog. They have a great gallery full of ideas and lots of fun chatting too.

I'm off to spread the news... :)
