My upline Debbie Sims emailed me late, late last night to tell me to go look on Jeanette Lynton's blog, that they had announced the winners.....AND.....that MY layout was chosen!!!!
This is the announcement, taken straight from the blog of CTMH founder Jeanette Lynton.  I am so honored to be in the company of such talented ladies.

Lasso A Stamp Set—Contest Winners!

Early Convention greetings! It's Monica here, and with just two months left on the calendar, we are busy and excited at the corporate office for Convention 2012 in Dallas. It is really going to be the party of the year, and in many ways, the party has already started—whether that's through great logo items you can order, or incentive contests you can participate in, or sharing travel plans on the bulletin boards, the anticipation of this great show is a favorite part of my job.

This year, we added another fun component to the pre-Convention excitement—a great artwork contest, inspired by Consultant Bren Yule! Anyone who knows Bren knows she is a creative genius, and the Convention reminder postcard got her creative wheels spinning. It was such a cute postcard, she said, why not incorporate it into a scrapbook layout? And even better, why not encourage Consultants to submit that artwork for a chance to win prizes? We couldn't agree more!

We had dozens of darling and different entries for our Lasso A Stamp Set contest, and we promised to select three winners who would each receive a stamp set of their choice from the not-yet-released Autumn/Winter Idea Book. But, after much deliberation, we decided it was too difficult to choose just three. We loved them all, but because we couldn't choose them all, we widened our winners' circle to FIVE. I absolutely love their fresh artwork and their sheer enthusiasm for Convention. Here are the photos of their winning pieces—congratulations and thanks to:
Heather Stewart!
Carolyn Burch!
Tamra Pope!
Lucy Imrie!
Kristin Wessell!
Thanks to everyone who entered, and big cowboy congrats to our five winners, who will each receive their favorite new stamp set. You're all stars—now let's see you shine bright in Dallas this July!

Ok, I will do my best to settle down (stop doing a happy dance every 10 minutes) and get busy finishing up some more artwork to share with all of you.
