Spring Break

It is finally here!

I know I've been somewhat delinquent around here this past week, and it looks like this week may see a little more of the same.  I promise you that I am working on some projects however, and will have some new stuff to show you soon.  I'm really hoping that I get at least a couple of days in to create this week while I have the break from running the kids back and forth to school and dance.

I'm up today over at Scrapping Everyday Miracles with a Praise Post.  If you're at all interested in learning a little bit of my spiritual journey I invite you to pop over and have a peek.  It's a very quick read.

In scrappy news I have two things to share with you today. One is that My Scrapbook Nook is having  another Design Team Call.  This place, is hands down, my favorite crafty inspired address on the web.  The women are incredibly talented, many of whom design for big name manufacturers.  The DT manager is one of the sweetest women I know, and also the one responsible for me really falling in love with this hobby, as she shared her designs, ideas, and a lot of her heart through both her personal blog, and The Nook blog.  The Forum is uplifting, and encouraging.  The classes/challengers are free, and run every month, and the gallery is always, always over-flowing with inspiration, and jaw-dropping creations.  I love this place, and have met many like-minded women from, literally all over the wold, who quickly become friends .  If you'd like to try out with me, you can find more details here.

News item number two is this email I received last week...
"Hello! We would like to publish your submission in the August 2012 issue of 
Scrapbook Trends..."  
Talk about through the roof excitement.  I literally couldn't stop smiling when I read the email.  I will actually have a layout published in a real live printed magazine read by thousands each moth.  I am still on the moon excited about it.  I realize it's a long way off, but I can not wait to see how they photograph it. You can be sure I'll show you once I can.

I'll leave you with a sneak of one of the projects I've been working on for a Guest Designer spot next month
Do you recognize that paper line?
Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope your week is off to a great start!

I couldn't be happier for you, Sherri! Your work is amazing and well worth a page in any scrapbooking magazin out there! Congrats my friend! Can't wait to see how they will photograph it. Please, do share with us when you get your copy!

I am loving the sneak! Yummy! Want to see more! :) Good luck trying out for the Nook! I want it so bad I can't even think about it without having my heart jumping as crazy. Part of me is scared to even try but I think I would regret if I don't. I am keeping my fingers crossed for you!
