Reject Blog Hop

Saturday, March 5, 2011

You might be confused by the title of this post, but it actually makes me laugh a little bit! Yesterday could have potentially been an extremely exciting day for me, but I didn't get a "Happy Email". What is a "Happy Email" you ask? Well, it's an acceptance email from Paper Crafts Magazine informing you that one of your cards/projects has been chosen to be published in their magazine!! It is one of my goals to be published, and I've submitted 7 cards throughout the past several months, and for this particular Go-to-Sketches Call, I submitted 6. The sketches were just absolutely awesome, and I had such a great time creating for this call! I made a few things I would have NEVER come up with on my own. Well, I sure am not the only one who has cards that were rejected. With 2,760 submissions, and only 288 spots, that leaves A LOT of leftover rejects! So, Amber has been so sweet and kind enough to start a Reject Blog Hop on her blog HERE! I think it's such a GREAT idea! I'm so excited to see what other people created, and see if any are the same sketches that I did! How fun!

As always, I'm grateful to have you spend a couple minutes with me today!
Oh---and yesterday may not have been my Happy Email day, but today is!!
Stay tuned next week for an announcement I can't wait to share with you!! :)
