Toot Toot! My Very First Publication!

Happy Tuesday!

I was so very proud to have one of my cards chosen to be published in the April/May issue of Simply Handmade. This is my very first real live magazine publication! I'm so very excited about it, and of course my family and friends think it's awesome! They ask..."How did you do that?" I must have told that story a million times already!
Here's my card with the magazine opened up to my two page spread! How COOL is that? Oh boy, I hope this is just the first of many to come! For "payment" I received 2 copies of the magazine and a box load of scrappin' goodness! Oh I can't wait to dive in to it!
THANKS for dropping by today. I always love the sweet comments you leave and I appreciate them each and every one! Have a lovely day! HUGS!

Pin It!
