I am Really Stepping Out of the Box!!

Don't tell me you can't teach an old dog new tricks!! I just won't believe a word of it! Just take a look at the two scrapbook pages I finished today!

One is using the 6 X 12 page and the other is heard me...ROUND. Now if that isn't out of the box..what is?

The 6 X 12 was done due to a challenge from a friend..she said if I did the 6 X 12...she would do a digital scrapbook page....You know who you I guess you'd better get busy!! :)

Leave a comment and let me know what you think about using the two different formats for scrapbooking pages. I'd love to hear your comments and thoughts!!

I Need Some Organizational Help!! I am a member of SEVERAL scrapbooking boards. All of which I really adore and wouldn't dream of leaving any one of them. I give them all equal time...many times a day!

Here is my problem! I get involved in challenges and swaps that I really want to be involved in. Now don't get me wrong....I don't get involved with every swap & challenge on every board that I frequent. I do pick & choose! The problem is...I have this fear of forgetting something or someone due to the many I might have going on a one time.

I really enjoy the swaps & the challenges and I don't want to give them up! Someone has to have an idea of how I can solve my problem!

Here's a challenge for you: Leave me a comment with a way to get more organized with my challenges & swaps. On June 20...I will draw a name from all the comments and RAK that person!!

My Very First TOOT!!

I have been scrapping for so long...since about the early 1990's. Until recently, I had never submitted any of my pages or other paper crafts to any type of contest, or anything else that would result in any type of publication.

Well, a couple months ago, I decided to submit a couple of my pages to a contest on one of the scrapbooking sites that I am a regular. I didn't win.....but, that began this saga!

I have since submitted to several contests, several print publications (no word yet!), as well as to one online magazine. I am a regular on this magazines forum, so I felt comfortable doing this. Well....I am (or rather my page) is in the June publication!!!! Woo Hoo!!!!!

Here is a link...go visit my page. Look over the mag. It is a really super publication put together by a fantastic group of people!
