Nearly forgot...I WON!
Late on Friday night...(Saturday morning actually) I was blog-hopping & ended up at Donna Downey's.
I took her class at the Johannesburg Annual Scrapbooking Convention last year (2007) & just LOVED her.
She was absolutely full of fun & I loved her artsy & relaxed approach to Scrapbooking.
To be honest I had kinda forgotten about her...then I got onto Cathy's blog & pinched her little emblem to add onto my sidebar (by the way, thanks to Mel for teaching me the right terminology) & wanted to create a link directly to the originator of said pretty little thing, only to find out it was Donna!
Thought I would check out her blog & saw that she was GIVING AWAY 4 PLACES in Shimelle Laine's Online Christmas Art Journalling Class (2 sets of 2 tickets) & all I had to do was leave a comment to stand a chance of winning. Said my bit then left...never thought about it again...'til I got a comment from Cathy today, congratulating me!
Ever the cynic, I went over there to check it out & sure enough I WON!
I am the person that wins NOTHING, despite pretty consistent effort...so I was doing cartwheels (okay, not really, that would be like, impossible...) There is some EXTRA SIGNIFICANCE to this as SHIMELLE LAINE is definitely my fave SCRAPPER OF THE MOMENT. Her creations are really different & I love the way she embellishes. She really pays attention to detail & I am just dog-gone crazy about her work...
