So Chuffed

I have finally finsihed my article for the Scrapbook Magazine, I won't tell you what the topic is so I don't spoil it but I will say it was challanging! I sent all the layouts last week and emailed the written work on Monday. I have really enjoyed doing the magazine work and the kids have all really enjoyed being in print. My little nephew Josh told all his friends he was famous as he was in a magazine and he took a copy in for show and tell. I know that there are so many talented scrapbookers out there that I really didn't expect to be asked to do anything else for the magazine but I was so excited when I got home from work yesterday and there was an email from the editor asking me to do another article!!! I am so chuffed and it gives me a valid reason to buy some more stash! My deadline this time is in just over a month so I need to get myself organised, I have done one of the layouts today. The topic is one that I love which is fab.

Oh yes and another bit of exciting news, I emailed a layout to Cheryl from scrapbook inspirations in response to an email and it is going to be published in the reader gallery.

I haven't managed to fit in much scrapping lately which is a shame, I really want to get on with some of the great classes and challanges set on the scrummy stash cafe blog. I have done this layout of me and the girls. It would be lovely to have a photo of the four of us for a change!!

This photo was taken on our fab weekend away at Saunton Sands, both the girls looked so beautiful. I used October afternoon papers. Oh yes and I did this layout of me about aged 7, prepare for a laugh...............................

Told you! This was taken in the New Forest in 1978 on our first ever Jones Family Picnic, we all met in Bournmouth and then hired a coach which took us all the the forest. We still meet in exactly the same place every year, this year there was nearly 50 of us. It is such a great family tradition and one that will hopefully be kept up. I used Sarahs Cards kit for this layout which had some of my favourite papers, Scenic Route!
