A few recently published layouts

Hello everyone! In the past few months, things have been so busy! What with the beginning of school, our water damage and now preparations for Christmas... I had all but given up on submitting my work for publication. I simply did not have the time or the patience to keep track of everything. I only submitted my design team work. Recently, however, I decided it was time to get back in the swing of things. Let's face it: it's a thrill to see a layout of ours in a magazine!

So I've been updating my Scrapbook Resume and I realized there are a few layouts that were published that I never shared with you. Some of them might've been shown here already, but my memory is weak these days so you'll forgive me if that happens!

First off, here are the 2 layouts that appeared in the reprint of Canadian Scrapbooker's Basics Volume 1, back in September.

The first is a layout that was created quite a while ago. CS used it in the "brads" section of their special issue. This is Kira in Cuba in January 2008. *sigh* I wish I was there right now, lol!

You know what is amazing about scrapbooking? Other than the fun of creating and the memories we are preserving, I mean? It's the memories we make while we are creating! If you are a scrapbooker like me, I'm sure you can remember where a lot of your layouts were created. For instance, I made the following layout during a Saturday crop at my friend Bella's house. I can still remember where I was sitting, who was there, how much we talked and laughed... It's amazing to have all these memories.

This next layout appeared in the September issue of Scrapbook Trends. I love this layout! I remember making this at a Friday night crop at Scrapbook Centrale. Erin gave me the little owl sticker because it fit so well!

Finally, here is my first pub in the french-Canadian mag Scrapbook Extra. It appeared in the September/October issue. It was also my first Scrap Within Reach publication, so that was quite exciting!

Thanks for stopping by♥
