Recovery and a Couple of Calls

So I had my friend's three little boys for the last 24 hours. They are the cutest little dudes. But it made me realize just how challenging little people can be. My youngest is in 2nd grade and gone to school all day. Funny how quickly you forget how the younger hooligans needs constant watching and entertainment. I'm exhausted! It's good to be reminded how awesome I find their mother. Yes, you know who you are. I don't know how you do that everyday and you even take them to run errands. GASP! So here's to all the mother's out there with young children. Kudos to you!

I wanted to point out a couple of calls from Scrapbook Trends. Here's a couple of hints to catching the eyes of our editors:

* Take a great picture of your project!
* Send in one project per e-mail.
* Send a little blurb (at least) with a tip or trick to creating your layout.
* And YES, our editors look at EVERY submission
* DON'T give up. Keep trying. And don't be afraid to resubmit a layout, card or project that did not get picked up before. It might fit a new call that we have.

  2. Jenn - thanks for posting this and the tips - very much appreciated. I know I feel awkward sending something in again so that's nice to hear it's not silly ; ) On the 4 x 6 call - can that be 4 x 6 slightly trimmed/cropped or does it have to be exactly 4 x 6?

  4. I am not the one who selects the projects for publication, but I would assume that a slightly trimmed 4X6 may still grab their attention.
