I got pubbed!


I got pubbed!!! And this is cool for one big reason: I set a goal in summer of 2009 to have a layout published in a print magazine, and I did it!

I'm all about accomplishing goals. If you don't know what you are working towards, then your work has no forward motion. It may be as simple as scrapping your child's baby pictures from the 90's, or to use a new technique you've been wanting to try. Whatever the goal is, you still need to have one, or the motivation may not be there.


I have to tell you that I was at work when I got the e-mail from CK that they were going to publish 2 of my layouts in the Everyday Memories special issue.

I was a hot mess! :) I jumped up and down, I was in near tears, and I shared that moment with 2 of my most dear friends: Laura and Renee.

That is also what makes this so darn cool! Thanks ladies for being there for me!! I'll always remember you being a part of this when I look back on it.


CK released this issue last week. I got my copy at Borders, so head on out and get yours! It really is jam packed full of wonderful pages, tips and ideas.

Thanks for sharing this moment with me, and for reading my blog!! :)
