Out for Publication

I'm really excited to share the news that I am going to be published in the next three issues of Scrapbook Trends magazine (see sidebar for titles and issues)!  I had never submitted anything, anywhere before, so I was thrilled beyond belief when the very first page that I ever submitted got picked up.  Then I submitted the following two months and got picked up for those two layouts also!  I had never shared the layouts that I submitted on any public website, so I never had to take it off a website and replace it with an "OUT FOR PUBLICATION" notice.  I'm kind of bummed about that!

I decided that on the off chance that I ever get a layout published again that I would create an "Out for Publication" layout to use.  I got this idea from somewhere on Two Peas, but I can not find the page now.  (I can't believe I didn't bookmark it - it was such a great idea!)  
I hope that I will get to use this sometime and that I didn't totally just jinx myself!  Even if I did, the layout will be a nice way to remember that I did get published and will try again.  I used all Crate Paper patterned paper (mostly Restoration)and used by Slice for the word 'publication.'

I hope everyone is enjoying CHA this weekend!
Have a great day!

  4. Thank you everyone! It is VERY exciting! I can't believe that i am less than a month away from seeing my first published layout in print! And I do hope that I get to use the "Out for Publication" sign soon!
