I grabbed the latest Scrapbooking Memories (Vol. 11 No. 6) magazine yesterday and eagerly tore it open to have a look at a mini album I did featuring the Bella Ruby Rock It range. I was so nervous.......LOL But I like the way this came out and I had a heap of fun making this album too.
I also have a LO on page 128 of this issue too.

That was my 5th publication and I am waiting on confirmation of 12 more yet to come!
If you had asked me a year ago if I thought that was possible. I would have just laughed at you.....LOL
Here's a sn
eak peek at the magazine page.

It's almost August so nearly time for a whole bunch more challenges at Ready, Set, Scrap! I was bribed, begged or hassled into releasing a challenge early today. Them girls are just hanging out for the new challenges!......LOL
So here is my Quote Challenge for August:

For this month's quote challenge Tracey would like you to create an item using the following quote:

We Remember The Moments”
You may use the Quote as your Title or in the Journaling.
Tracey would also like to see:
3 Different PP's Used
3 Shapes The Same Size
A Minimum Of 6 Hand Stiches

There is an awesome $20 store voucher on offer for the winner of this challenge.
