Sharing My Excitement

This is the July issue of Creating Keepsakes. Have you seen it yet? I noticed it at Target yesterday (only two copies left) so I picked one up. Normally, I'd just wait for mine to come in the mail, but I was going to have a loooong wait ahead of me at the optometrist and they never have a good magazine selection.

Okay, actually, I already had a magazine with me for the wait at the optometrist. I just used the wait as an excuse to purchase this issue rather than patiently wait for it to arrive in my mailbox...I really picked it up because I was anxious to see this...

Yep, it's my very first magazine article! I had so much fun writing it and creating the scrapbook projects for it...but I have to be honest, the wait to see it in print has been torturous. I hope you like my article, but even if you don't, no worries, this issue is full of awesome summer themed ideas! I don't know about you, but I always have way more summer photos than I do of any other season. So I am always excited about new summer page ideas.

I'll leave you with a little peek of one of my layouts from the article. Happy Tuesday!

Cindy, I almost did the same thing!! I almost bought it in Borders and knew I was getting it at home. Luckily it was in my mailbox when I got home!!

I LOVED your ideas and have been a BIG fan of yours ever since you were kind enough to be in the HOF circle, encouragement thread on Scrapbook dot com with Amy H. Not sure if you remember me....I've been watching your pages and loving them all!
I still haven't submitted since we moved to St. Louis a few months ago, but I think I'm ready to try again!
I really enjoyed, "Irresistible","Fear" and your home quote. I will use all three as inspiration soon!!
Can't wait to see what yo do next!
