Oh my goodness! I clicked refresh once and poof! It was there! hahaha! I guess that means now I will actually have to work! :)

Congrats ladies !

a bit sad again...
not because I didn't get it... but because some of the people you chose,(at least one) although they are really talented, already belong to more than 6 different DT's

sometimes I feel other people don't really get their chance...

but I totally understand your choice, you chose people that "touch" you !

Aleks said...

wow, awesome honour to be top 10! :) Thank you so much!

Can't wait to see who's on the DT!

elizabeth said...

BIG congrats to those who made it :)

Greta Adams said...

Dear Anonymous,

I'm sorry your disappointed.
It is really hard to please EVERYONE!
I haven't even decided on my top 3 yet,it's been that difficult.
I have been touched by so many of you and hope that you will still visit our blog and our site in September.
And remember...this is only a 6 month gig,
So we'll be doing this all over again in April.

Camille and I have also talked about Guest designers, and hope to incorporate some new faces that way as well.
Stayed tuned for the Big Announcement tomorrow,

I am a bit upset that the pubcalls and every place else says that submission were going to be taken till August 1st... here it is August first and you have a top 10. I guess if you found the DT call today even thought it said till today, you don't have a choice.

Thanks for listening.

congratulations and good luck!

KimmyS said...

am very pleased for my dear friend Sandie V to have made it to the Top 10 as she is an awesome scrapper but I would be lying to say that I am not bitterly disappointed for myself.

That's cool I get over it eventually.

Now I keep my fingers crossed for Sandie, coz she ROCKS

Don't worry Bree, I really appreciate the tone of this blog, it is always cool to read your posts !!

I know most of the people you chose are already on DT's but one of them is on 7, nearly 8 DT's already...

But no doubt they are all very talented and your choice will be good for your shop !!

And I'll keep coming, and I'll try again in 6 months !! lol

have a nice evening

I literally had my hands over my eyes and couldn't 11 year old son said, "if you don't go, I am going to go and look." I made him and kept my eyes covered!
He read my name, Bree, and I almost fell out of my chair!

I am so excited to be considered. Even more, I count myself very lucky having met you ladies...even if it is through this silly laptop computer!
I am excited about tomorrow!
Best of luck all you finalists!
