Happy Monday! Happy news!

Hello there!

I have some fun bits of scrap news to share.
I FINALLY took a risk and sent a page for possible publication.
It got lots of positive gallery feedback so I thought perhaps it had a chance and it did!
My Brooklyn page will be published this August in Scrapbook Trends Magazine- yay!
There is always the small possibility that a magazine might have to cut pages and not publish a project so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
Has this ever happened to you? 
But it was a wild chance anyway so knowing it was picked is good enough for me.
Good news is GOOD, right now.
My inner Eeyore will have to go play somewhere else.
I'm bouncing with Tigger right now.

The second piece of happy "news" is that I'm one of the new DT members over at Scrap FX- a fantastic chipboard manufacturer based in Australia.
I made a mini announcement last friday so I won't say much else other than I've already met two other DT members:
and awesome scrappy friend Misty who encouraged me to try out in the first place.
(thank you thank you THANK YOU Misty!!!)

The third piece of fun scrappy news is that I have a guest spot coming up this tuesday the 20th over at Yvonne Yam's blog Do More With Less.
I will be hosting a challenge for the week and have a VERY cool prize for the winning project.
Can you guess what the theme will be?

Swing by and give it a go.

I love the light falls in this photo.
MuChOs SmOoChEs!
