So Excited I Can't Sit Still!!!

I just wanted to thank everyone for all the kind words of support from my last post. You honestly have no idea what your thoughts have meant to me. I have wanted to post something about the divorce for the last 3 months and just haven't known how to go about it.. I needed to get it off my chest so I could move on.. Thanks again for your friendship!


Ok! I am totally going to toot my own horn on this post.. because I am so darn excited!! I am a published designer!!! I have been asked by the U.K. Publication Scrapbook Magazine to be part of their design team!!!!
My first issue came out this month:
My First issue included a 3 page spread about my style and an interview to introduce me to their readers!!




I am going to have one to two layouts posted every issue from now on and be paid for my contributions!! I can not believe how lucky I am!!!

Ok! I am off to check out what you have all been up to this weekend! LOVE YOU ALL!
