3 ans & 11 mois - Pebbles Inc.

I submit to magazine calls.
A lot.
You don't get pubbed if you don't submit, plain as that.
I rarely do layouts specifically for a call.
I'll submit layouts that are already finished.
However, once in a while, a magazine call will trigger a hint of inspiration.
In this case, I'd had these pictures in my stash for a looong time; after all, Sean just turned 5 and he wasn't yet 4 here.

Scrapbook and Cards Today has a call for pages that include children's artwork.
As soon as I saw that, I was reminded of these pics.
So I didn't scrap something I wouldn't have otherwise; I simply scrapped something that might've been forgotten otherwise.
Is it pub worthy?
I don't know.
But I'm glad it's done!

Now, I'd like to point out a few things on this layout.
First off, Sean's artwork and his name were drawn on construction paper, which is highly acidic and would fade after a while.
So I scanned them and printed them on photo paper.
Second, see the "s" in the word "ans"?
I didn't have an "s" left in that alpha sheet, so I took the negative part, stuck it to my page, coloured inside with my Zig pen and removed the negative.
I think you can't tell, right? (other than the fact that it's not straight...)

Cardstock: Bazzill Basics;
Patterned paper: Pebbles Inc So Tweet and Skipping Along collections;
Letter stickers: American Craft Remarks in Roosevelt jr brown;

Buttons: MOD Whirligig;
Pen: Zig Writer in Chocolate;

Thanks for stopping by ♥

Oh, yeah, it is DEFINITELY pub worthy! And you are so right... you won't get published unless you submit. Trying to get better at that myself!

Great 2-page LO! :-)

Hope it's a FUN weekend! :-)
