Good morning... I have to get something off my chest.
Yesterday, I got my CK magazine in the mail. I had submitted several pages for their "Amazing Pages" call and knew one of my pages had not been chosen because I didn't get notified. That's okay. I will continue to try to get published. I eagerly opened my magazine so I could see all the "Amazing Pages" that actually were chosen. I was so disappointed. First, there were 10 published and some of those 10 have been published several times before. Second, there were a few that I personally did not see amazing qualities in. There were a couple that did deserve the recognition, because they were amazing, but geez... CK, do you think you can come outside of your box? I have noticed that the same people get published, the same type of layouts get printed, and so on. I have preferred Scrapbooks, Etc magazine for a long time now, so when my subscription is up at CK, I will be subscribing to Scrapbooks, Etc.
Okay, I feel better now. Thanks for listening. ;)
Here is a layout to share... it actually was a submitted page that didn't get chosen. Mostly, I love the photos. Elan was only a week or so old and Mac adored him. Mac would refer to him as "My Baby." I am so hoping to craft today. Lots of card and layout challenges are out there and I want to play! I got my Studio Calico September kit Thursday and I want to so bust it out and make something great!
