Paper Craft Island Winner Announced .... and it is Me!

OMGeeee, I am deeply honored to have been voted winner of Season 1 on Paper Craft Island!!

To my friends, family and supporters, I truly appreciate your votes as well as your encouragement.

To my very worthy competitors on the Island, your work was awe-inspiring. So very often, were it not illogical and perhaps fatal for me to do so, I DEFINITELY would have voted for your projects. You made me stretch out of my cardmaking skin, to dig deeper into my craft supplies, to even near the bar you set. I appreciate you all (and wish I knew who you all were so I could "follow" and be inspired by you more!), even though you were exhausting me!! :)

To my Fellow Final Fishys, Christel and Donna, WOW. Your projects have always been a-m-a-z-i-n-g, and I could barely keep up with your talents. It was so much fun going toe-to-toe with you; I hope we'll meet again off-island, and lift a coconut shell of rum punch together.

And to Kimi, our Jeff Probst and show producer wrapped up into one: what can I saw but AWWWW SHUCKS!!! THANK YOU for your kindness, friendship, mentoring, late night e-mail exchange and laughter. I LOVE the concept of Paper Craft Island, which was probably obvious from before Day 1 when I literally BEGGED to get on the Island. I was ready to build my own raft or swim ashore if I had to (arrrgh, a pirate invading your Island!). You kept us on our sand-covered toes, and always made sure we had enough Creative Juice to drink. THANK YOU, thank you, thank you.

I wear my sash proudly, with appreciation.

Do you mind if I show off some of the projects I made for PCI -- and which kept my PaperJungle a complete disaster??!

Here they are starting with week one's postcard:

I won the treasure for referring the most followers!

The birthday card I made for Kimi's daughter won the
birthday girl's favorite pick!

DeFiaNtLy DiFfeReNt & CreAtiVeLy Yours,
