One Year Blog-aversary!

So, today is my one year anniversary of my first blog post!  Wow!  I started this blog on a whim and I can hardly believe its been a year already.  It has been a wonderful year in blog land.  I've discovered some amazing blogs and super talented people!  I've made some great blogland friends.  I got to be a part of my first design team (Red Carpet Studio.  Thanks Ashley!) and have guest designed a couple of times for other blogs.  I had luck with some challenges and won a Top 20 spot in the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol competition.  And as exciting as all that was, I'm still super excited when I see I've gained a new follower!  I'm just so amazed that you all enjoy reading what I've been up to.   But I've realized that I've been a bit remiss in my appreciation of you all.  From now on, at the end of the month, I will be making sure to welcome any new followers I get.  For those of you who are following me now...
