At last!

I found something exciting at Barnes and Noble today--my Father's Day frame on the last page of PaperWorks magazine. I've been waiting for this for like eight months! It's the first time I've ever been published in this magazine.

This is a picture of my brother-in-law Ky and his kiddies Tanner and Kylie, taken on Father's Day, as a matter of fact, by Todd. We were in Missouri for a family reunion, three years ago. The kids look so little! Especially Kylie.

It's a drop-dead gorgeous day today--breezy, sunny, even a tiny bit chilly in the wind. I love spring days like this. I had to run a couple errands today, and it was such a pleasure to drive around with the windows down and the radio on.

I'm trying to get a couple layouts done for the CK Idea Annual call--deadline today of course. It's been a long time since I've scrapped for a CK call, and I'm finding it just as creatively stifling as ever! Seeing something I made in print always sparks the spirit, though--makes me want to keep trying.

Congratulations! Whohooooo. So gorgeous.

How do you keep the paper from getting gloopy? Do you not turn it down on the side?

Mimi, I stuck the paper down with Mod Podge--just brushed it on the back and then smoothed the paper across the front and around the edges. Usually I brush Mod Podge over the front, too, to make sure it's really stuck down, but I didn't want to do that here for some reason. So I just applied it to the back of the papers.
