OMG, I totally feel like I've won the Scrapbookers' Lottery!
Today I saw on the blog for Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker papers that the card I made for little Olivia was chosen as the winner of Nikki's HUGE prize!!
The info about the win is posted here:
The info about the prize (oooh-la-la!) is posted here:
But most importantly, here is an update on Olivia, posted on her aunt Stacy's blogsite:
And here is a picture of Olivia opening her mail (which I see included my card!). Isn't she an absolute cutie!!?
Olivia's brain tumor was successfully removed in August, and with radiation she is now receiving, the chances of reoccurence have dropped to 20-30%. I pray that they are soon zero, and that this little girl can get back to the business of being a kid again -- including kindergarten!
For those who don't know Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker papers, please hunt them down and add them to your collection. They're a very fun paper, with bright bold patterns and special punch-outs, add-ons, buttons, brads, etc. all that match. My one local scrapbooking store carried it ... but the store closed this summer, for good. :-(
I buy my NSS paper online now -- wishing I could find it locally! -- and cherish every bit of it I have. My favorite online shops for it are A Cherry On Top and Stop And Scrap. Both of those have links provided to their NSS papers. (I've noted that ACOT does not currently have the newly released NSS lines ... BOO! ... but that Stop and Scrap has the line at 25% off right now. Sign up for their website and you'll get a coupon on top of it!)
