First Publication with My Little Shoebox and Cottage Cutz

I'm so excited to share my first publication.  I know many of you have been published tons, but I've never submitted.  I did submit for a contest My Little Shoebox was having to feature a layout in their February ad.  I was thrilled when I found out my layout won.  Finally after months of waiting Northridge February magazines are being released...and my layout is in it. 

I used all My Little Shoebox papers and of course had to use Cottage Cutz that matched the MLSB lines.  I used the following dies:


Here's the GREAT part for you...hopefully I've inspired you and your ready to do a layout, right?  Well the current challenge over at Scrapping Cottage is do a layout and use some of their dies and you might just win .  Be sure to head over to Scrapping Cottage's blog and check it out.

It was nice to have a holiday break with Prickly Pear Stamp, but I have to say I'm so happy Prickley Pear Monday's have started back up...HOORAY!

Today I created this fun retro card with a really important message...Remember to Play.   Life can be so crazy all the time and it's really important to remember to have fun.  The stamp set is Kids with Plane.  Love that vintage look.
