Hopes of landing a cover...



So everyone wants to be published in a magazine or a book...it's part of the rite of passage in the scrapbooking world, right? I thought that I could rest on my laurels since the nephews and niece have all had layouts of them published in print magazines.


But when the two older nephews found out that my blog pal Lizzy Hill's layout made the cover of Scrapbooking Memories magazine, the wheels started spinning in their heads... They initiated "photo shoot" sessions with the hopes of being "coverboys"...*LOL*

It was pretty entertaining watching them "direct" their two younger siblings in the photo sessions while I shoot away. I don't think we've nailed any cover shots yet...but one should be hopeful, eh? *winks*

Playing along with Let's Get Sketchy.

Yes, I think you should be hopeful of landing a cover because your work is gorgeous. This page is particularly beautiful because of the balance and embellishments which really compliment the photo. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. I know you'll accomplish your (and your nephews') goal. You deserve a cover for sure!
