Scrapbook Trends - Wedding Idea Book

I finally had a project accepted by the Scrapbook Trends editors. Their Wedding Idea book hit the newsstand early in January, and I was so happy to see it! I had this card accepted for the book.

The funny backstory for this card brings a little panic to my heart. I made this card and neatly tucked it away like many of the cards I submit to magazines. When I got the callback for the book, I went to get it. For some strange reason there was a brown spot right on the paper with the sentiment...and the card was ruined! So I began the hunt to replace that paper and remake the card. (Little did I know that the paper was an older line and VERY hard to find!) Several desperate trips to local craft stores and a few gray hairs later I found the exact sheet of paper and was able to replace it on the card in time to mail it for publication. Whew!

Yikes! That's a nailbiter for sure. I have yet to be picked up by them, never sure what their looking for.

Congrats on the pub! Beautiful card.
