Published.

Yep, that's the exciting news I hinted about in the last post...I've been published! :)

I had sent this LO in for last year's Memory Makers Masters contest (it was my first time entering the Masters) and obviously, I didn't win. However, I received an email a few months ago asking to publish it in their July 2008 Memory Makers Idea Gallery issue. Eee! Yippee! This is my first time being published! So excited, if you couldn't tell. Went all over the place this morning looking for it too, with no luck. Finally ended up at the nearest Border's. They had a stack, thankfully! I purchased 5 of them, 1 for me, 1 for my Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother and 1 extra copy just in case. I also received a free sample of Seattle's Best Coffee, which doesn't really have to do with anything, I just thought you'd like to know. :) It was such an awesome feeling flipping through the pages in Border's trying to find my LO. Page 105. Best of the Rest. I'm in really good company too. Some familiar names...Michelle Clement, Lisa Garay, Celine Navarro, Kelly Goree. So cool.

The new Inspired by Amelie challenge went up yesterday. Kirsty (aka messyhappyfunkirsty on SIStv) is our fabulous guest DT and the challenge is to tear your photo, like the discarded photobooth photos in the movie and use the color red. So simple and fun, right? Here's my take...I had this scrap piece of cardboard that I decided to turn into a wall hanging, wrapped it in vintage lace, watercolored on an old piece of ledger paper, then stamped on top. Tore my photo right in half and finished with more vintage lace in the corners, clustered sequins around the photo/journaling, gold trim and ribbon. So easy. So quick. So fun. Due on the 21st of July and you'll wanna play because the prize is from Story of My Life. So, check it out!

Off to work soon. Closing and then in at 8 in the morning. Ugh. It's going to be a rough one.
Till next time...
