If I'm dreaming....

   Please DO NOT wake me up!  Earlier this evening I wandered over to the Collage Press blog because I remembered that today was the day that they were making their new design team announcement. I hadn't received an email from them and thought I would go check out who the lucky ladies were. I can't even begin to tell you how in shock I was to see my name in the middle of the list. Yep, Tonya Dirk, spelled correctly. Me. Right. There.

   I am literally over the moon about this. I feel lucky, honored and blessed.  Those who know me, know that I firmly believe in only trying out for teams that I absolutely love their product. Designing for companies can be a lot of work and very time consuming and if I don't feel passionate about the product it shows in my work, which makes for some tough times. There will be no tough times with this one. I absolutely adore everything that I have ever seen from Collage Press and I just can't wait to get started!
So thank you so much to Collage Press for wanting me and congrats to the other lucky ladies on the list!

Here are a couple of LO's from my submission...

 This first one was made on a 12x12 Clear Scraps acrylic sheet....
