Then I signed on to check my e-mails, while I ate my lunch. There was an e-mail to say that This will hit the shelves in the shops today!

Like many others, I was so disappointed to learn that Scrapbook Inspirations were printing no more magazines after last December - not least because they were due to print a commission layout of mine in the March 2010 issue, which of course has not appeared. They've hung onto the commission, with the intention of featuring it somewhere in the future, but I was still very sorry about it.
However, I answered a call for submissions, from Shimelle and was lucky to have one of my layouts selected for publication in their new Quarterly Book, Issue 1. I'm quite excited, as this is now my first published layout (in a paper format anyway!).
We're allowed to put "sneaks" on our blogs, but not the whole layout just now....
So, a couple of "Sneaks" to pique your curiosity...
Go and buy yourself a copy of the book - it sounds fab! To find out more, take a look at Shimelle's blog post.
Have a good day!
