I'm so excited about some recent scrappy news that I can't really share with you yet.
All I can say is that I was asked to contribute a layout to something that's happening in an upcoming issue of one of our Australian scrapbooking magazines. This was an honour I was only too happy to accept!

But with the "pressure" of creating something I knew was going straight to print, I must admit I had a practice run first :-)

So this was the first layout I created. I'm not going to give anything away by telling you any of the specific criteria or rules, but I'll just let you enjoy the layout as it is!

And although this layout would have done the job, I just felt like I needed a second option so I could choose my favourite. And I felt like I wanted to do something that was a little bit more "me."

I couldn't help playing with some of my new goodies - so while all the papers and the red alphas are from old Sassafras collections, the green alphas are new Sassafras, and the chipboard pieces are from the new Cosmo Cricket Togetherness range that I picked up from Handmade by Suzanne.

The quote on the journaling is from a Michael Jackson song.... hopefully it doesn't come across as too sad, and more as just wistfully thinking about how quickly time flies.

Anyway, I'll let you know more about the real project in a couple of month's time!
