My First Cover!!!

Let me tell you... I was bouncing around in excitement when I saw this!!


I had no idea that my layout was going to be on the cover of Scrapbooking and Beyond. What a FANTASTIC surprise!!! I must say that this was a big thing for me... yep, I admit that it probably made my year! LOL!! Poor Kelly was on the phone with a client and for the first time in 22 years, I interupted him. I just couldn't wait a single minute to tell someone and he happened to be the only one home!! Poor guy! Hopefully, he was able to convince his client that he didn't live with a nutcase!

I have gotten such a kick out of seing one of my layouts staring back at me from the newsstand. It is everything I can do not to point it out to random strangers in the store! I'm leaving that to my dad!! My mom tells me that when he sees it, he shows everyone and tells them that it's his grandkids on the cover. I'm afraid to ask if he tells them that his daughter made the layout. The answer just might give me a complex!! LOL!
My kids have enjoyed it, too. They have both had friends call them or text them to ask them what in the world they are doing on the cover of a magazine. Jade doesn't like the picture of her but I'm pretty sure that she will live! It's been a lot of fun and I just hope that I might get this opportunity again someday!
Be sure to check it out! There are so many wonderful layouts in it!! Some of your favorite scrappers are also in the magazine. The flourish series is featuring rub-on flourishes this time. You just have to see what Gabrielle Pollaco, Liz Qualman and Debbie Danielson did with their layouts!
Thanks for dropping by my blog!
