Something to cross off the Bucket List!

So if you have been following my blog you can see that I have been attempting to get noticed in the scrapbooking industry. I have applied for many a design team as of lately. My motto is to try, try, try and try again.. Which can get frustrating, but I love the hobby so at least I enjoy trying!

In March, I received a little recognition for one of my projects.  I was excited to find out that I had won the American Crafts Facebook challenge. My Pebbles tray was selected as the winner that week. You can see the link here. I will have to post some pics of the goodies they sent me!

Later that month, I had seen that Tonic Studios, a scrapbooking tools company was looking to add to their US design team. I had seen this on facebook... Can I just say that facebook has been a great way to network lately! So I went down and pulled out what I could find of my Tonic punches and tools and started searching my brain on what I could make that would stand out. I started with a sketch, which by the way looks nothing like the finished layout. My creative process at times is all over the place, which isn't always bad.

This is what I came up with, a lovely layout of my little niece. I have been waiting to come up with a cool idea on how to showcase this picture.

Well as luck would have it later on that week I checked my email and low and behold, I had an email asking if I would like to design for Tonic.

Let's just say it made my day! I was so excited!! I am so excited for this opportunity. I recently received my goodies to start playing with and designing with and also received my first assignment: Mother's day..

This weekend, I just completed my first assignment for them. I made a couple of mother day cards and a layout.

For now here is a sneek peak of the layout.

I hope you are all having a great month like I have had! Now I can cross one thing off my bucket list.  Now on to the next item! What is something that is on your bucket list?

Happy Creating!
