The one that didn't make it

Last week, I got the wonderful email from Memory Makers that "one (or more) of the layouts you submitted was selected for publication" for their Big Book of Scrapbooking Ideas that will be published next year. I was instantly excited, but then I read on to learn that I wouldn't find out which ones had been selected until a few days later. (whonnnt whonnnt)

I finally got the details email earlier this week, and out of the three layouts I submitted, they selected two of them. Yay!

Obviously, I can't post the ones that were chosen, but I can post the one that wasn't. Poor Avery still isn't going to make it into a pub...


I did a lot of hand-cutting on this layout, and I painted the flowers at the top with Shimmerz to make them pop a little. The edging around the circle is a sheer black ribbon that I pleated and adhered to the back. The papers are from GCD Studios, Jenni Bowlin and Scarlet Lime. I'm loving the turquoise and red color combo, which I also used on this layout in brighter shades.
Of the three I submitted, this was probably my favorite, but it goes to show that you never know what they're looking for. Go figure.

Beautiful layout! Isn't it odd that sometimes the one you like the most is the not the one that is chosen....but one you thought might not appeal to anyone but you IS chosen? Funny.

Well, this is certainly a beautiful page! Congrats on the other two that were chosen. And you're right, you just never know what they need/want for a pub. :)
