great news + some ramblings

Woohoo... I won the Feb Challenge over at Graphic 45........ check it out here. I can choose the paper collection I like _ TransAtlantique papers. I dream of doing a travel mini with these papers! Hooray! Now if you have the patience, stay with me as I off load something off my heart. I am feeling lousy because none of my mini albums were picked up for pub....... I sent in 5 for the recent ST calls for mini albums. I wonder why. Yes.. I go this phrase....... wondering why........ wondering if mine were really that bad. Of course, i celebrate with those who toot in the forums .............. but I feel the questions coming from within me "what happened to mine?"........ Maybe I need to step back and take a break from submitting to ST. I never had the luck with them. Well, I will still go on creating - that's my first love (not the submitting) but it still sucks not being selected, right??? Anyway, thanks for listening.......

Wendy, you are a very talented scrapper. Don't let this take the joy out of what you love doing. It's been said that all good things come to those who wait. I'm sure it'll come soon enough. *huggies*

I know how you feel sometimes, Wendy but don't let it get you down - it seems when you least expect it something great will come your way! You are a talented scrapper, just this month you have been recognized by 2 major manus!! MM and G45! You should be proud of your success!!

Yes I saw the G45 win ! fantastic ! lol


that's the problem with submitting - it would be nice if everything submitted gets picked up but the downside is obviously when they don't . I've never submitted to print mags before so I can't say what went wrong - but perhaps we have to also analyse closely what is being pubbed - closely look at what kinds of style gets in to the mag - not the best work gets pubbed you know that by now I hope ! So don't take it badly actually .
