It has been a long and exciting journey to the end of DoCrafts Scrapbook Apprentice. Just the very start of it was enough to bring me into a panic induced heart attack.
From creating with ONLY Coredinations and some bare essentials:
But as I said at the beginning of this post.. it was a journey to the END.
Back in August I was chosen by the judges to be the DoCrafts Scrapbook Apprentice.. I WON!! Something I just never thought I could achieve, I never had the confidence in myself.
I would like to thank everyone for their continued support throughout the competition. I can't tell you how many messages and emails I have had, telling me I was your chosen Apprentice and you love my work. Self confidence of a frumpy mum is steadily increasing! :) Thank you, it meant a lot to me.
Most of all, a huge thank you to the DoCrafts team. They have been consistently amazing throughout and sure do know how to set a good challenge. I have been working as a paid designer there now for a few months and it already feels like a second family. A special Thank you to Katy Godbeer who is just the most freakin' coolest 'boss' you will ever get to work for..
.. She once got through to the boot camp on X Factor you know!
Thank you for your support and guidance.. Geekchat rules!
SO as this is turning into a speech.. *ahem* I just wanted to say thank you to my best friend Sunshine who has been a rock to me. My girls on MSE who have been like team Mel! and lastly, my husband - my inspiration who believed in me from the start... who told me:
'It doesn't matter who wins, what matters is you was in it.. and to me you will always be the best damn scrapbooker in the world.. and you got a great bum'.
So thank you everyone, I am working hard and I hope to live up to your expectations.
Now I need to just go do a screaming dance again... I WON!!!!!
