Who Hoo...

I did it... I'm so freakin (excuse the language) excited. I finally began realizing my dream of being published and actually started submitting my work. Guess What??? My first submission was requested for publication. Be on the lookout for Sept/Oct issue of Simple Scrapbooks...
I've been working a lot at work (my 9-5) which lately has extended until 7:00pm or 8:00pm but a woman's got to do what a woman's got to do. I'm not complaining, just venting... I'm tired. I'm actually coming down with something but I am fighting it off like the plague. I can't get sick because we are celebrating National Scrapbook Day on Saturday at Damaris' house. I won't be scrapping but I'll be helping her with anything I can because you know I'm an awesome friend like that. Not to mention, I'll get free lunch, dinner and all the Coca-Cola I can possibly drink. Oh and hopefully Jacqueline will make delish desserts... We'll see...





Check out the two delicious kits that are in my possession.





Cocoa Daisy kit for April

Scarlet Lime Kit for April

Two beautiful kits with inspiration. I'm off to jump start some mojo with my new Scrapbooks Etc magazine that just came in the mail. I'll leave you with a layout I made for Sketch This. I applied for her design team but I haven't heard a thing so I guess I didn't make it. Oh well, nothing lost and everything gained. I have a cute layout to add to my album. Have a good night everyone and keep scrappin those memories.

Ady! Congratulations. Having several things to be published this year for the first time, I can totally relate to your elation. You go girl! Remember to remind us when when your work gets published and is out on the stands.
Hey, made great fun with parts of the rak from a few weeks back. It's on my blog if you want to peak. Would love your input.

Whoo hoo!!!!!!!!!!! So freakin happy for you. You set a goal at the beginning of the year and you accomplished it and it's only April. Not bad, huh? I am so excited that I will have to buy it on the newsstand when it comes out because I don't think I can wait for my sub copy to arrive (they take way too long to send them out!). LOL!!! Great job... Love ya!

Great job Ady. A woman CAN do what a woman HAS to do - and get published while doing it! (said with attitude) You are a wonderful woman and deserve so many good things in life. This is just the beginning.

When the magazine is out, I'll be asking for an autograph!

Love, Noemi
