I Won A Simple Scrapbook Magazine Contest!
 
OMGoodness!!!! I just got a call from Simple Scrapbooks Magazine and I won their Coolest Album Ever contest! I am in shock; I just can't believe it. She was just calling to ask if she could publish my name on the website tomorrow. I didn't even think to ask what place I took or prize information. She did say my book would be published in a special issue next year! I'm just on cloud-9 right now. I've never been published for anything. WOW!!!! O.k. I'll try to come back down to earth in the next few hours or so. Just had to share my news. Thanks for listening. Kendra

It was a book about my little dog "Baby". She died after a 2-year fight with cancer & it about our special bond and her battle. She was a special little girl and I made the book because she was such a joy to me. The book brings tears to my eyes everytime I look at it. I feel very honored that it will be published - a tribute to my special little sweetie.

I followed a theme of black and creamy caramel pages with stamped paw prints in black & Versamark, pewter accents & black/white gingham ribbon.

Thanks for the warm wishes. I sure hope I wasn't bragging, I just wanted to share my joy.

mom2katjon 09-16-2004 02:42 PM

FANTASTIC!!!!! Don't worry about bragging - you DESERVE to brag. That is wonderful news. I would be shouting it from the treetops if it were me :D

baughtl 09-16-2004 02:42 PM

Although I am not surprised - one look at your gallery is all it takes to see that you are extremely talented! Way to go!

Cambria 09-16-2004 02:43 PM

I have to agree. Your album pages are surely an inspiration to me! I can only hope that mine will ever be so good!

I think that it is wonderful that you have shared your joy with us! I don't see it as bragging at all.

After losing my dog a month ago, I cannot tell you what an awesome idea it is....and congratulations on your winning entry! MAKE SURE you post the website, and the album, if you can!!

Heck no you weren't bragging!! I'd be shouting to everyone "HELLO< I'm sooooo cool!" LOL :) I was absolutely *not* being sarcastic! I just thought it was funny that it was titled the "coolest" scrapbook, and I love the little 8) guy :)

I love your cards, so I can only imagine your scrapbook pages are equally good :)
