I CAN FINALLY TELL YOU MY SECRET!

Hi!

No I didn't create my own cartridge or stamps, or anything that would give me an income!  I won the grand prize of a contest that was open to Cricut Circle members!  After I entered I found out that I was a finalist along with other members, that was my secret!  Then I found out that another blogger friend, Erin at erin lee creative was a finalist!  How exciting is that!  I was hoping that they would have several winners to film so I could meet her!

So here's what I won!  A trip to Utah to film a segment for an upcoming infomercial and demo one of my projects for the DVD, a tour of ProvoCraft and lots of goodies (including new cartridges that I didn't have)!  I was so impressed with all the people that I met at ProvoCraft and the production staff!  The director of Cricut Circle sat down with me to get my feed back on the club.  He truly wants to make this club wonderful and has put his heart into it!   I got to go behind the scenes, and see different things...sorry no pic's allowed and I can't tell what I saw!  But I can show you a few pictures of me at the studio and at ProvoCraft!

me at ProvoCraft in the design center, I'm so tired at this point, but like a kid in a candy store...just bouncing off the walls (in my head of course, I didn't want them to think I was insane!).  Oh my...my head was really spinning by this point!


Then back to the airport.  I was in Utah for less than 24 hours!  This was an awesome 24 hours for the paper crafting geek that I am!

One last thing, it's my understanding that a lot of amazing projects were submitted.  A lot of hard work goes into this, and I just want to CONGRATULATE all the other finalist too!  I just wish I knew who all of you were! 

Enjoy!

Congrats!! Your work is fabulous, so I am not surprised. How did you like Utah (what little you saw of it)? I live about 1 1/2 hours north of Salt Lake, so you weren't very close to where I live....but the mountains are beautiful no matter where you are in the state.
