PUBLISHED!! CK Scrapbooking Ideas for Every Season

I have some great news to share today!  The new Special Issue of Creating Keepsakes Scrapbooking Ideas for Every Season has been released...and I have a layout in this issue!!  


I couldn't believe it when I was contacted in May of 2011 and asked if I would like to accept an assignment for this issue!!  After I got up from the floor, I responded with a definite YES!!  :)  It has been so difficult keeping it under wraps for that long, too.  But time flies, and I hope you will pick up this issue and check out some of the amazing work by some very talented Scrapbookers!

My layout is included in the Spring section of the magazine.  I really wanted the focus of this layout to be on the pictures, so I decided to keep the photos fairly large and keep my embellishments to a minimum.  But I think they still complement the page and I really love the cute, Country Drive papers from Echo Park alongside the colors in my photos.  So here is a look at my page...and I must say that I am completely honored to be included in a magazine with these Ladies, who I consider to be giants in the Scrapbooking industry and they are the ones I look to for inspiration.

 
Thanks for stopping by and keep an eye out this Summer, because I have two Reader's Pick Poll layouts that will be appearing in Creating Keepsakes...and maybe another surprise here or there!!  ;)

  8. Congrats to you, Ashley. I learned about this a few days ago, but didn't want to say anything until you made it public. Loved your LO when I saw it and it was difficult to not say anything.
