OK, I know you've heard that saying, "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade" right!?! Well i am actually partial to this version of it, "when life gives you limes, make margaritas!" And that my friends is just what I am going to do. :)
Recently I submitted a few cards to PaperCrafts Magazine Go-to-sketches. This was not the first time I've submitted, nor will it be my last. None of them got accepted, but I feel like it is still a fun process and SOME DAY one will get accepted. Don't worry, you will know when that day comes, I'll be shouting from the rooftops! Meanwhile, I am having fun making the cards and feel like my abilities are ever-growing.
If I am honest though, when the acceptance emails go out and I don't get one, I am a little dissappointed. BUT thanks to Amber at Damask Love, I am turing that frown upside down and looking at the bright side of things, which is why I am participating in Amber's Reject Blog Hop. Thanks for the pick-me-up Amber, looking forward to MARGARITAS BABY! :)
Here are a couple of the cards I submitted for the PaperCrafts call, which are now part of this lovely blog hop! I didn't save the original sketches and can't find them at this point, so I made these from memory, I think they are pretty close.
Of course, if I could take a good picture (below- baske CS color is supposed to be Regal Rose) that might make a difference- ha!
Thanks again for the reminder that this is all supposed to be fun Amber!
And breathe....I wish I could say I was a SAHM (stay at home mom), but I am not. I am mom to this beautiful girl, wife to my wonderful husband, in addition I work full time and try to make creations on the side. Whew!!! With so much to do and so little time, this is where I find a moment to breathe. These projects are my release, my little bit of ME time in this busy life.
