Wow! For those of you who know me well, you know I am not a huge fan of summer...the heat, the lack or routine..how busy we are..I am actually a bit of a summer Scrooge! I look forward to school starting and I count down the days..but this month has brought me some new surprises and some great scrappy times.
I heard that I was to be published in Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine's spring 2012 issue this month. I do have a layout coming out in the September 2011 issue and couldn't believe they chose my work AGAIN! Print publishing is one of my scrappy goals that I strive for every time I create something.
I also happened to be asked to join Practical Scrappers Design Team. They are a wonderful source of talented designers who provide inspiration EVERYDAY!
I also heard from Scrapbooking News and Review and they asked for 5 of my layouts for their most recent edition! What an honour.
Finally, Mys Sketch World had a design team call and I was chosen to be a part of their layout design team.
Can you say WOW? I am so lucky to have these great opportunities and to be part of great teams. I continue to love my Two Scrapbook Friends design team work and this month I am working with Simple Stories kit. It;s is gorgeous and versatile and can hardly wait to show you on September first!
So...I guess summer isn't too bad after all...and I won't be so quick to tell you there are only 20 days til school starts!
Still doing what I love (and so lucky to have people believing in my art!)
PS: I wanted to share with you a layout I made while scrapping a few weekends ago. I used Little Yellow Bicycle's Tiny Princess Line. Lots of strips and a canvas banner, a little chipboard wand and some purple polka dot ribbon. Lots of butterflies and buttons and finally, some stitching!
