Homework Complete

Today was a very quiet day. I dropped my phone on the driveway and it smashed. So if you were trying to reach me today my phone said I was unavailable. Really, I was just clutzy and in need of a new phone.
I took the "quiet" time to spend some time scrapbooking. The great thing about my job is that I can combine my "to do" list with doing things I love.
I received a special invitation from Stampin' Up! to participate in a program. I was very honoured to be selected and I get to be in the program for 3 months. My homework this past week was to email "My Why" statement.
Yes, they said statement. First of all I couldn't describe why I am a Stampin' Up! demonstrator in one statement. Secondly, I wanted to scrapbook my participation in this program, beginning with my first assignment.
The tags can all be taken out and this is what they look like.
Some of the tags have words on both sides. I really enjoyed going through the catalogue and finding stamps that help to describe My Why.
I started selling Stampin' Up! for the discount but now I have so many reasons why I do this. My phone is working again! Woohoo!
