Where there is Love

Before I share my layout- I just have to tell you my good news!!!! I got an email today from Cards magazine and they are going to be publishing 2 of my cards in their November issue!! I am doing the happy dance! And I needed something to brighten me up after stepping in a puddle of puppy pee (say that 10 times fast) and drinking sour milk (for the 2nd time in just a few days)!!! I can't wait for the July Issue of cards magazine as my first published card ever is in there!

Now on to a scrapbook layout. I made this with one of the sketches from the Got Sketch 101 class. It has so many more elements than I am used to and I LOVE that! (Just wait until you see the next layout!)
I made this with the Summer Days Simply Scrappin kit. I begged Jill to let me have her kit to make some invitations for a friend. (No worries- I ordered her a new one!) And after I finished the invites, I decided to use some of the leftovers for a layout.

I just had to add some flower fusion and some brads!!!! But there is no ribbon!!! Did your jaw just drop? No worries! The ribbon will be back!

This cool little bracket shape was made with a template that they gave us in the class. I just printed it on to some DSP and then cut it out. The journaling around it says: the Sears family: full of laughter, full of energy, but most of all full of love. I just wrote it with my white gel pen.
I am off to work on some swap cards (hello GSG!!!) and the next sketch for the class! And I have MORE scrapping to show you tomorrow!!
