15 Minutes...or so of Fame

My friend Debbie Hill sent me an e-mail at work today. She wanted to know if it was one of my layouts on the back page of the current Scrapbook etc. Magazine. I didn't know, but I was very intrigued. Very curious. I did not have the most recent issue (yet!) Since I was at work and I had already gone to lunch. I had to just wait. Wait until I was free from work to head to a store, any store, to go check it out. I first went to Walmart (they didn't have it), then I went to Michael's (they didn't even have the most recent issue.) I then went to Target (bingo!) Three times is a charm. I went immediately to the back page and there was a tiny picture of this layout:

Check it out:
I was so excited!! It was a little 'ad' for Mom and Dad LO's in their online gallery. ME!! My favorite magazine!! Debbie thought it was me and she was right. I didn't want to get my hopes up untill I saw it for myself. Tiny or not, it was in PRINT! WOW! Very EXCITING!!

I remember when I made this LO. It was a challenge on the Junkitz (my FAVORITE!) website. I LOVE me a good challenge. It was to take 5 or 6 sheets of coordinating paper, a few embellies and create a bunch of LO's. I chose Janna Wilson 's Delight*ful line. I LOVE all things Janna!! It seems like I made this LO so long ago, but it was only about a year ago. The LO lives! Plus, I LOVE this pic of me and my son. My hair was sooo long! Okay, I am rambling, but this is so COOL and EXCITING for me! Thanks Deb for the 'heads up'!!!

That was fun to find! I was wondering why I didn't get an excited email back right away...I figured you knew in advance that it would be in there! LOL So I'm glad to know I was the bearer of good news yesterday!
