Sidewalk Chalk...

Happy Wednesday Everyone! Whew - this week is just flying by! I am happy to report that last night, I spent some time lining up some fun blog posts for the next couple of weeks - can't wait to share all of the fun stuff with you...

For today, I am sharing a layout and a question... I will go ahead and ask the question first. Last November, I was lucky enough to have a layout chosen for submission in Scrapbook Trends... Since then I have submitted a few layouts here and there, but it seems that I became so busy with design team obligations that I have not been submitting in any real consistent pattern. Now that I have given up my position on one of my digital design teams, I am thinking about submitting again. Any words of advice for me on that? Mostly, I just need some kind words to help me build up the courage to put myself out there again! Until then, I am sharing this fun layout that I put together over the weekend...

Great layout! And as far as advice, the best and only thing I got is to just keep trying! Some months are good and you get picked up and other times you go months without anything getting picked up. It happens to the best of us. But your work is definitely good enough to be regularly picked up! Good luck! :)

thanks for visiting my blog and I am glad you like my Project Life album. This is my first year doing PL and I will definatley be doing it again next year. It is such a versatile way to record your life. I love that I can include paper layouts/digital layouts, large photo's, artwork and anything else that takes my fancy. All I can say it do it, you'll love it.
Love me :-)

Oh honey you are so talented. I say just go for it! You have such a good eye for color and design. My DH always says you can't make the basket if you don't shoot for the hoop. :)

This is so pretty, Casey, love the stitching! My biggest piece of advice for you is to try to send it out there and forget about it, not having expectations. That way you're excited when they get picked up and not crushed when they don't (although easier said than done, I know!). Your layouts are beautiful and you should totally go for it!
