If you ask me, my scrapbooking dream is to become a designer for a kit club (well, the ultimate dream will be to design for a manufacturer - - but, let's be realistic here shall we? I'm no Idols Iris, Cookie or Bjay).

I hear others saying that included in their SB dreams is to be published. Honestly, the idea really did not cross my mind at all - - until Stefanie Semple's (of Journaling Junkie) email. I submitted my "In case you don't know" LO for their February Challenge and she said, "This one is absolutely fabulous. Are you sure you shouldn't be trying to get published in a scrapping mag instead? (aaawwww!! ain't she sweet?)

Feeling encouraged, I submitted that LO to a pub call and you guessed right!!! It's gonna get published!!! I'm so stoked, tickled pink, soooo happy (so much that my all my officemates knew- - I was doing my happy dance in my cubicle LOL!!!). This is my first time to submit and it's gonna get published!!! (I know, I already said that didn't I?)

I'm not sure how it goes though- - all I knew is that I have to take out the LO pictures from my blog (will have to advise JournalingJunkie too). I'm not even sure if I'm allowed to say what magazine it's gonna be - - am I allowed to say? (so sorry, still a newbie!!!).

Stay tuned. Just sharing my SB happiness. ;o) Thanks Stef, for the encouragement. Thanks everyone, for the support. ;o)

great news Janis!!! I love all your works and was shocked when you stated that this was your first. I always thought all your LOs are for publication.

Anyway, I saw you at Lasting Impressions but was too shy to say hi because Im starstruck at you.

I consider you one of the best. Goodluck again and congratulations!!! Im so so happy for you

Hi Janis. Congratulations! I am so happy for you! I saw that LO and it is really gorgeous. The best thing is yet to come ... that is, when your child is old enough to appreciate what Mommy had written on that LO! Cheers!
