Well, after much deliberation last weekend, I answered the Design Team call for one of my favorite sites, Fotobella.com. As you all know I have not had much luck with these the past couple of years. I have found the Design Team selection process and competition to be a lot tougher than it was 8 years ago.
While sitting on the couch Monday after work with my love (who was intently watching the football game), I submitted my application and samples to FotoBella and hoped for the best. The call details had promised to contact the selected members on Wednesday. When I didn't hear anything, I chalked it up an experience that would make me better the next time I applied and made a mental note to check the blog on Friday to see who the lucky winners were. While I was at work on Thursday, I heard my cell ringing from the depths of my purse. I quickly fished it out (which was not an easy task), looked at the phone and decided let it go to voice mail. Within a couple of minutes, my phone chirped notifying me that I had a voicemail (boy that darn thing can be persistent!). I was intrigued and decided to listen.
To my shock and amazement, it was the sweet voice of Cher from FotoBella welcoming me to Design Team! What...me??? I had to listen to the message a couple of times before it actually sunk in. Yes, FotoBella.com wanted ME!!! I had been selected as 1 of 4 new design team members for the October 15, 2012 to April 15, 2013 team. Our team also has been blessed with 2 returning members.
Congrats to Apryl, KimberlyRae, Lisa, Jeri & Sarinda. I look forward to seeing what these talented ladies come up with each month and look forward to getting to know each one of them better.
As a design team member, I will be designing a layout, card & tag each month for FotoBella.com and I cannot wait to share them with you.
