Officially Published!

Hello Everyone,
It's finally here...the June issue of Ginger ScrapStreet Magazine. I recently submitted my "boot card" to Krystal at Getting Cricky and I was so super excited when she emailed me back saying that I was going to be published in an online scrapbooking magazine! Here is the link to the current issue and the page my card is featured on in Ginger ScrapStreet. The entire magazine is awesome and well worth a look through but this is my favourite page this month lol.

The card I made was actually the beginning of my 'tired of all the scraps' mission. The entire card (even the base) was made from my scrap pile! Once I cut the die cut I couldn't help but think there was something missing. I traced the scored decorative lines on the boots with a while jelly roll pen and it looked like a whole new piece. I loved the effect so much that I snapped a picture before I did the second boot (yup, I made two of these cards) I was excited about showing this on my blog because it just shows how adding a little something can make all the difference in the world. I am glad I can now finally share lol. I will put the picture below with my card photo.

I want to say a HUGE thank you to Krystal! You have no idea how much this as made my entire month!
Happy Crafting!

CONGRATULATIONS Sweetie. That is quite an honor!!! I agree the boot with just "a little something extra" puts it in a class all its own. Gorgeous freehand work!
and p.s....thanks for being such a faithful follower of my blog!
