Sketch #189

Thank you all for your well wishes to me regarding the Creative Scrappers design team.  I did not make the cut, however, again.  It's getting embarrassing already, as this is the 3rd, or maybe even 4th time I've applied for them.  There's obviously something that is holding me back  from being included.  The official list has not yet been released, so I don't yet know if any of my scrappy friends have made it, but I am really hoping some of us have some good news to share with us this week.

Here is one of layouts I submitted for the call, based on sketch #189.  I loved this sketch, it was very much my style.

Using Studio Calico's January Kit, and some bits from my stash
I have several layouts on the back burner waiting to share with you later this week, as well as a couple of scrappy secrets dying to come out, so it's all good, the rejection hasn't killed me.  In fact this time I am really at peace with it, and know that so much about being chosen has to do with so much that is out of my control. 

Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope there's a great week in store for each of you.

Loooooove the layout! So cute and such fun colors! Awesome photo. I am with you right now....taking some rejection (not from CS but from other DT Calls )and trying to convince myself that God closes doors so He can usher us in to even more beautiful ones. Some moments I'm believing that. Some moments I'm not. Can't wait to see what is around the corner for you, my talented friend!

I'm sorry you didn't make the CS team and can totally understand why you'd want to be part of it. I truly believe that God has placed each of us exactly where he wants us to be and right now, being on the CS team isn't where He wants you for some reason. Your work is beautiful and your journaling is always so heartfelt and genuine. I feel honored to be on the DT for SEM with you!

I wanted to add that I was just looking at some of your previous posts and saw the one of your MIL that I just had to comment on because it was just too sweet! I love your journaling for that page (as always) and the photo of her is so cute! You'd never know by looking at that picture that she was just given a mouse in a jar. LOL I'd be screaming! lol I got a kick out of that page and it made me smile, just like all of your pages do for me! You are such a ray of sunshine, Sherri. I mean that with all sincerity.

I'm so sorry you didn't make it, my friend! And unbelievable!! I applied too, but didn't hear anything, didn't even know there has already been a cut. Your take on the sketch is fabulous. Let's keep our chin up together, there must be coming something better for us ;-)

They are crazy...that is just that. Seriously, you always ALWAYS rock their sketches, so just continue to do that.
