Almost Famous!!!

Today I am kinda, almost but not really famous!!! I have been published in Becky Fleck's March PageMaps newsletter!!! I stalked the site all day yesterday, but cos the US is way behind in time, it was not until this morning that I finally saw my page in print. I must admit... it's a wee bit exciting!!!

I was given a 12x12 double layout sketch to complete;

As I usually scrap singles I did find this a challenge, but I am pretty happy with how i turned out... and I'd want to be after fiddling with it daily for about 2 weeks!!! I have such a hard time committing!!! LOL! Anyway, here's my layout;

I have used pp from Sassafrs Lass, Basic Grey, Scenic Route, and Pink Paislee, plus BG Microchip alphas, Scenic Route chip alphas, and Heidi Swapp acrylic Ghost Shape stars edged with acrylic paint.

I hope you like my efforts!!!

In other news, I am still feeling queasy and extremely tired as a result of being pregnant. I am hoping that in two-and-a-half weeks, when I reach 13 weeks, I might start feeling more like myself again. Fingers crossed!!! I had a blood test last week and will be having my first ultrasound next week on the 10th. My partner and I are both really excited, counting down the days until we see our new baby (or babies! EEK!) for the first time. We still haven't told our daughter the big news, but hopefully once we have the ultrasound pic to show her we might just be abe to explain it so she will understand. I'm sure she'll be very excited as she has been asking for a baby brother or sister for some time now.

Well, that's it for me for now. I will be back either tonight or tomorrow to share the work that I have done over the long weekend.

Have a great day!!!
