**Please Vote for Me at Cosmo Cricket!**

**THIS POST WILL REMAIN AT THE TOP OF MY BLOG UNTIL TUESDAY JAN 25TH WHEN VOTING ENDS FOR THE COSMO CRICKET DESIGN TEAM CONTEST** PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR NEWER POSTS.

So, to my amazement, I made TOP TEN at Cosmo Cricket in their design team contest. This would be SUCH a dream for me to be able to design for them so I wanted to share a couple things I made this weekend in my excitement and to show you what I would do if I made this amazing design team. I figure it is only fair to share projects made using Cosmo Cricket when asking for you to take a moment and vote for me! If you would like to vote for me, it's very easy, just visit Cosmo Cricket Blog and there is a poll set up on the side bar. You have until Tuesday to cast your vote. The competition is fierce and I'm far from winning the votes but I'm still very hopeful that it can happen....with YOUR help!

The first project I'm sharing is this awesome jumbo altered clothespin. It's just perfect for displaying a favorite pictures on your desk. I used Circa 1934 for this. It's my favorite line right now - I just LOVE the vintage feel to it. I also used glimmer mist in yellow and distress ink in barn door to color the clothes pin before decorating. I love having this on my desk - This pic is one of my favs from this past Christmas.

Here is a close up of the project.

And since first and foremost, I'm a card maker! I used some of my Circa 1934 scraps to put together this thank you card. I also used ippity stamps Life is the Journey & Itty Bitty Paisley for the sentiment.

So, I hope you will vote for me! It's hard for me to ask, oh heck, BEG like this - but it's the nature of the contest so here I am....asking and begging for your votes! :)
