First Publication

Ok, I know this is not a big deal to a lot of you, but this is my first publication, so I was pretty stoked to get this in the mail today....And here's my name in print with my little Halloween party invite and matching goodies...Funny thing is this is not one of my best projects. I love the digi kit I used (by Karen Lewis), but I just kinda threw it together. I never would have submitted it if it hadn't been for the urging of a friend. I mean, it's cute and all, but it's so NOT one of my best projects!!! Of course, I've submitted about a million things since then (things that in my opinion turned out way cuter than this little number) and not a darn one of them has been picked up for publication...so frustrating...{sigh}.

But I have to say, today was a pretty good day!!! :-)

And in case you're interested, here's what my photo of the project looked like...
