Latest Pages

Just a run down of this past week's scrappiness.

First off, let me share some good scrappy news. If you know me in real life, chances are you already know this but I haven't said anything about it yet here on the blog. But, my first publication is in this month's issue (Sept 08) of Scrapbook Trends! I was holding out until I actually saw it in there..which btw, I still haven't seen the issue yet.. but it's kind of a prelude to this first layout I have posted. I've gone WAY OUT on a limb here and submitted this layout for the Scrapbook Trends cover contest that's going on over at 2peas. If by some miracle I place in this contest (they are doing 1 winner with 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th runner ups) I'll have to remove it from the blog. So if it disappears, that's good news! :)
Right now Scrapbook Trends is the only mag I'm actively submitting to. Hopefully the one page I had picked up wasn't just a fluke and I'll manage to get some other pages picked up for pub. I can not tell you how excited I was when I got the email back in April that they had chosen one of my pages. So, if you have a goal of getting published, don't be afraid to send those pages in!!

This past week Creative Scrappers hosted a 1 hour sketch contest. The sketch was posted and you had one hour to complete a layout and 15 minutes to get it uploaded to the gallery. It was a lot of fun. I think we had close to 3o participants. Here's the layout I did for that.



A couple more I got done while scrapping with Telah....


And speaking of Telah, she just recently made the Design Team for a sketch site on MySpace called Scrapbook Challenges. Her first sketch and a challenge go up tomorrow, so be sure to check out her scrap blog. This page is using this past week's sketch @ Scrapbook Challenges.

And then one other sketch site that I've come across is a new one called Pink Sketches. This layout is using sketch #2.

That's all for now.. oh and ROLL TIDE ROLL!
