Over-the-Moon Exciting NEWS!!!!






I have already shared on Facebook so I know that a lot of you already know the news
 but OF COURSE I must document it here too!  I am sure it is not news to you
 if you are a regular blog follower here, that I am head-0ver-heels in love with
 ANYTHING Prima!

If so you probably also know that making the Prima Team is NO MEAN FEAT
 & there are many, many factors involved.  It is an open secret
 {not hard to figure out when you see what product I use the most of apart
 from the other manufacturers I already design for!} that it would be a
 dream come true for me to be appointed onto their team.

Sadly it didn't happen for me this year 
but the very next day I got some great news!!
I made the Guest Design Team which means that I have a spot on their blog
 coming up later in the year!!!  You can see the other Guest Designers HERE 
& I am so stinkin' excited for so many of my friends who are alongside me
 on the GDT list & those too who are on the team for a 2nd term 
or who have been appointed to the team at last this year.

It is a great honour & something that so many of us strive for 
as Prima is really a phenomenal manufacturer & the Prima Blog
 is THE place to be showcased, so there, I did it! 

 Of course one day I hope to make their Design Team {as do we all!}
 but for now I am grateful beyond belief & content as a pig in mud 
with my Guest Spot!  Thank you to PRIMA for the wonderful 
acknowledgement.  It's made my scrappy year!

Ooops forgot to answer your question you asked on my blog. Its a bit hard to explain, but i was able to take the cover of the art diary off the coiled spine. It had a different spine to be able to do this (I would take a pic to show you, but it has been sent off to KC). Then after covering with paper I used a craft knife to cut out all the little square holes for the coil spine to go through. Then just put it all back together. Hope this makes sense :)
