Published!

I came back from a short road trip to find the Stampers' Sampler Summer 2013 issue of Take Ten in my mailbox.  That meant only one thing--something I submitted was published! woop!  woop!

Take Ten Summer 2013..



Love this:



Stampington and Company had given its readers a dress template to print and decorate.  My theme was Homespun Harvest.  I used burlap, ric rack, twine, and wood buttons.  For the apron, I stamped onto vellum the September almanac background stamp (Relish Reading stamp plate from Rogue Redhead Designs, LLC). 

  


It's a small start in Stampington Publications, but a big deal for me! I was published once before years ago.  I'm motivated now to make more submissions.
