Little Bride and Groom

Some magazine publications have been closing since the year started. First it was Simple Scrapbooks, my first ever scrapbook magazine (I still have their very first issue), announced that their last issue would be this June or July (I think). Just recently, Memory Makers also announced their closure, their last issue would be the Oct/Nov issue. MM is the only magazine/book who published my layouts and I'm really saddened by this news. Creating Keepsakes and Scrapbooks Etc. are also favorite publications of mine and I'm really hoping that they'll stay in the industry amidst the crisis.

I'm beginning to think that I really don't have luck on getting published. Last year, my name was mentioned twice at CK but never had my layouts published hehehe. Oh well, I guess I'll dream on ...

Anyway, here's a layout I submitted to a magazine call but wasn't accepted (I guess). It's a simple layout I made last February using only few patterned papers, rub ons and cardstock.



matls used: Chatterbox Eclectique - papers, chipboard, brads, Daisy Bucket Designs, pins, Zig Writer
hidden journaling written ot the tag (top right of the layout
