So Excited!! Published in Scrapbooking and Beyond Magazine!

I was so excited to come back from our winter vacation in Florida to find my copy of Scrapbooking & Beyond Magazine in the mail!! I and 3 of my uber-talented friends Liz Qualman, Robbie Herring and Debbie Davidson (the whole thing co-ordinated by Liz -thanks Liz!) were asked to do a series called 'A Flourish for Every Season'. The magazine is printed quarterly and the Spring issue just came out!! For the Spring Issue we focused on using crystal flourishes on layouts.....and for the next 3 issue's we'll be focusing on a different flourish style for each season. Here is the page I made for the Spring issue......

To add interest to the crystal flourishes I handcut some blooms from some BasicGrey paper and intertwined them in the crystal flourishes using some Pop dots by Zva creative to give them some lift.....here are some close-up pic's....

I just finished my work for the Fall issue .....whew! a tight squeeze after getting back from vacation!.....thanks for having a peek!!
