My Fifteen Minutes of Fame!

wooHOO!!! How chuffed am I?! If you have your copy of Scrapbook Magazine handy, open it to page 16 and you will see what I'm so excited about - I've been bursting with it since before Christmas, when Lindsey Hopkins, the Editor, emailed me to ask if I would be interested in being featured in the magazine - well as you can imagine, I took about two seconds flat to think about it!

I had to come up with four pages for the article and the hardest thing was deciding on which photos to scrap - of course they had to include my boys, my Mum, my Dad and my DH.

Once I got started I had SO much fun! I mostly used the goodies I won for runner-up SBM Scrapbooker of the Year (see previous post for details). Here are the results ...

Sweet Dreams - my little angels!

Sunshine of your Smile - my Mum and Auntie Maureen
and their tiny 18" waists!

Snap Happy - me and my Dad at my wedding summer 2011
my DH - last but definitely not least!


I am SO thrilled to be featured in a magazine which has been a source of inspiration since I first discovered scrapbooking WOW! I can't get over it. To put the icing on the cake, there is a little snippet of my boys on the front page AND they've made a sketch out of the Sweet Dreams page - the possibility that other scrappers might be flicking through the magazine just as I do and choose to be inspired by MY layouts is the best feeling ...
