Who wants to CHA CHA CHA with me???!!!!????!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all....

Sooooooooooooo as most of you know I am on the DT for Nikki Sivils....wellllllllll in November she was running a contest for her DT to create a LO to show WHY we wanted to BE HERE with her NEXT MONTH!!!!!!! Wellllllllllllllllllllll.....LAST NIGHT ... NIKKI CALLED ME....and I WON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!! I AM GOING TO CHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAYYYYYYYYYYYYY! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Here is the LO I created for the contest...I used mostly Nikki's "Victoria's Street" line with a little "My Sweet Cherry Pie" thrown in for good measure! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)








Here is my journaling for my LO I made for Nikki's contest! :)

1) I would be the CHEAPEST CHA date ever!! No airfare for me - I'd be driving
over with my good friend Krista! :)
2) Network! :)
3) Network! :)
4) Network! :)
5) Network! :)
6) Network! :)
7) Network! :)
8) Get Nikki's name out there to every scrappin' household! We want Nikki's name
known! :)
9) Really - I am on a diet - lost 25 lbs. so far - so you know I won't eat
much! See #1 again about CHEAPEST CHA date ever! :)
10) To learn the in's and out's of CHA! :)
11) See how the industry works! :)
12) Helping by making me some make and takes! :)
13) Meeting Nikki! :)
14) Meeting Dan! :)
15) Meeting Susan! :)
16) Seeing some other scrappin' friends! :)
17) Seeing the newest products companies have to offer! :)
18) Sadly - even though I live in AZ. - I have ONLY been to CA. three times in
my life - shaking my head - sad sad sad! LOL! :)
19) Being able to touch Nikki's newest designs before anyone else gets too!!!
BONUS!! :)
20) Tell Susan, I am the BESTEST roommate ever! I'm a neat freak (no socks on
the floor from me!) - and I don't take up too much room! :)
21) Meeting Nikki's clients and winning them over to buy product! My SMILEYS
eventually win everyone over! :)
22) Taking a GAZILLION photos! I mentioned I was a scrapper? :)
23) 12 hr. days! HA! I could do that with one arm behind my back! Remember - I'm
the 3AM girl! :)
24) I mentioned cheap, right? See #1 and #9! :)
25) 10 years Retail Management experience! I was born to sell! :)
26) And last... but never ever ever ever least - I have never ever been to CHA -
this would be a dream come true! :)

P.S. would it have been better if I would have used a photo of me on my knees
begging for the chance at this??? :):):):):):)
