It's Rejection Day!!!!

Well, the happy emails were all sent out for the Sept/Oct issue of Paper Crafts and unfortunately, I didn't make it in this one.  :(  But Ms. Amber is at it again with the Rejection Blog Hop.  (She had 2 projects picked up for the Yea! Amber!!).  It really is fun to share those projects that don't get picked up for publication.  So thank you Amber for giving us an outlet to drown our sorrows and share the projects we all work so hard on.  Here is one of favs. 
Supplies:  Bazzill cardstock, We R Memory Keepers patterned paper, letter stickers from American Crafts, googly eyes from Westrim Crafts.

Thanks for stopping by!!  Have a great day and Happy St. Pat's Day!

It's Happy Email Day!

If you're a paper-crafter, you may know what "Happy Email Day" is.  For those not in-the-know, it's the day you MAY receive an email from Paper Crafts Mag telling you that your card submission has been accepted for publication.  Now... I am very happy to say that I did receive one of those much anticipated emails and my card will be appearing in Go-to-Sketches for Cardmakers in August 2011.  Over 2700 cards were submitted for this call and only 288 spots to fill, so if you do the math, you know there are some lonely cards sitting in boxes somewhere waiting to go to good homes.  Well, one of my fellow crafters (Laura Pryor) came up with the idea to start a "Reject Blog Hop" and another fellow crafter put the plan into action--thank you Amber!  Here's Amber's blog to take a look at the really wonderful "rejects" .  So, it is my pleasure to introduce my contribution to the Reject Blog Hop.
Sketch #31
So, for now, this will be placed in my card bin waiting to find a home of it's own.  Thanks for stopping by!!
