Papertrey Ink Apprentice

As most of you know, I started another blog purely for all my crafting called Krafty Kylie. I'm not very imaginative when it comes to picking names !! LOL

Anyway, there is a company called Papertrey Ink (I have bought a number of their stamps) and on the 15th of each month they release brand new stamp sets. The three ladies behind PTI are Nichole, Julie & Jane. Nichole Heady has her own blog and they had a contest (you need to scroll down to "Papertrey Apprentice Contest!"). If you don't want to here is what Nichole wrote:

The winner will get to assist me in designing a stamp set which will be released during our April 15th, 2008 debut. We will have a concept meeting via phone or email, to discuss what types of things you would like included in the set, the theme of the images, or even any fonts you would like to see used.

---> I will then design the set according to your specifications. You will be the FIRST to see the rough drafts & final copies! You will be involved in every step of the process!

--->Your name will be included in the promotion & packaging of the stamp set!

--->You will receive the first copy of the set, hot off the presses, before anyone else!

Guess what ???...........I WON !!! See Nichole's Post HERE !! I am so excited and nervous at the same time. Another thing, when the stamp set is released it will be just days before my birthday so what a brilliant birthday present.

I cannot thank Nichole, Julie & Jane enough for this opportunity. I'm not entirely sure what in is store for me but I look forward to it as it can only make me a better crafter.
