So glad I can finally share my exciting news!!!

I am super, super excited to be able to tell you my exciting news that was officially announced at the Stampin' Up! On Stage event in Brisbane last week. You are now looking at one of the newest members of the 2017 Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team!!! WOOHOO! Yes!!! The Artisan Design Team!!!!
This has been one of my goals for a little while now and I can't believe that it has come true. I'm so very honoured, humbled, grateful, thankful, excited and maybe even a little nervous to to be on the Artisan Design Team. But I can't wait to get creating for you all!

All the Artisan Team were given a memento for being on the ADT.  I must say that I didn't open it straight away because I wanted to take my time and not be rushed and to just savour the moment. I can tell you that I was super excited when I did. This is the first Tiffany and Co. piece of jewellery that I have owned. I didn't even want to take the ribbon off the box! Its just too gorgeous.

I did end up opening my box when we went straight from the last session of that day at On Stage to dinner.  I may have been just a little bit excited to see what was in that box!! And I may have squealed 'Tiffany blue" when I opened it! Ha! I still can't believe I waited all day to open it too. That is not like me at all!!

There are three of us chosen from the South Pacific market, the ever fabulous Louise Sharp (Aust.) and the wonderful Paula Dobson (N.Z.). I'm so excited to be on the Artisan Design team with these super talented ladies.

L to R : Shelli, Myself, Paula Dobson, Louise Sharp, Sara

There are 20 of us all up from all over the world and I'm so happy to be sharing this wonderful year ahead with them all!
