Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine

You can probabley remember my telling you about my layout being published in this magazine! Well, it is my first time and I am so excited to share it with you. Today is the actual day for this Summer issue, but some stores had it on their shelves early! So for my American friend Alex and others, here is a pic of my entry!

My hubby use to play on our church league and this game ended with a Win! Go Kingsway! Here is the actual layout and a much better picture! Lol! It is funny because I did this a long time ago! This layout was so fun to do and I had so much fun taking these pics.

Just wanted to share a tip that I use often. Whenever there is a problem with not knowing how much to embellish, the "Power of Three" is my rule of thumb. Using odd numbers makes for a better grouping than even numbers. Also when using word embellishments to journal, mixing it up with large and small prints or small fonts makes for a more interesting layout! Give it a try the next time your undecided about how much to add to your page!

I didn't dream that this layout would be choosen, due to products being out dated! (which doesn't bother me really! Lol!) But so happy that it did get picked up! Just goes to show that you don't always know what they expect! So always submit! You might get a surprise just like I did!

Just wanted to put another plug in about the Vintage Card Challenge and Give Away! You still have loads of time to make a card and link it here! Would sure love to see some of your creations. Remember, I never made one before, and if I can do it, so can you! If you have joined as a follower, or if you were one before I posted about this RAK and want to get in on this, please leave a comment saying so. Also, if you shared this on your blog please let me know as well. Thank you so much!

Hope that everyone had a great weekend and that this week is starting off great.

Make sure to check back on Sunday to see who the winner will be for the Vintage Giveaway!

Hugs & Blessings
