A while back Memory Makers posted a call for never before seen scrapbook layouts for a book that will be published in May 2011. They were looking for 500 layouts so I thought I might have a chance. Applicants could only submit 10 layouts. I submitted 8. Today I recieved an email letting me know that they selected 5 of my layouts for their book.
Of those 5 layouts, 3 of them are personal favorites of mine. Truly I love them. The other two I was pleasantly suprised. One was so simple I thought there was no way, but I sent it off anyway.
The 3 that didn't make the cut? I love them too. Some really different for me. This being published thing is kind of cool, but I have to admit that after I submitted them I no loger felt like scrapping. I am suffereing from a creative block. My mind feels like mush. And March wasn't the best month on record for me. I think I will continue to submit pages here and there, but it isn't going to be a big focus for me. Once I'm back at work I won't have much time. I already find I am becoming more simple as I become crunched for time.
So there you have it. My scrappy rant. And here are the three that didn't make the cut.
