Celebrate You

It's been interesting for me, looking back at all my publication rejections from the last year (which is pool I'm using for my 'away for work' cards).  Some of them I look at and say "yes, I understand why that didn't get in".  For others I say "no, not sure why they didn't LOVE this as much as I did".  Then, for cards such as this, I say "If I had changed (insert idea here), maybe it would have gotten in."  If I had done a dry emboss of small polka dots on the white card stock here, it might have made it in.  Who knows?

Anyway, I still really like this fun card and am happy it was rejected so I can share it with you while I'm not at home to create.  Today is the day Paper Crafts Magazine sends out their acceptance emails for March/April 2012.  Crossing my fingers I get an email but if I don't, then I'll have more goodies to share with you.  I only had a chance to submit 4 cards this time... time to wait and see...

Hope you are having a great September. Do something to celebrate you today.
Thanks for stopping by.

  1. You know I love banners!! This is so sweet, Glenda. LOVE the colors! :)

  2. Oooooo....that banner with the flower buttons on the ends is so super duper cute!! LOVE that washi tape! SO FUN!!!

  3. Oooooo....love the washi tape strips and banner! I like it without dry embossing since there's already so many cool elements. You're right that you never know what they're thinking with acceptances. Hope your latest trip is going well!
