I know in the grand scheme of things this isn’t much to worry about, but it’s got me feeling down today so I thought I’d share. I’d entered some layouts into UK’s Scrapbook Magazine ‘Scrapbooker of the Year’ competition, and I received them back this morning with a polite note saying I wasn’t a winner this time. I’m kind of gutted as I put a lot of time and effort into the layouts, as well as typing up all the supplies and instructions, and I thought I stood a chance of a runner up place at least.
Oh well, at least I can share the layouts with you now! And I know that the important thing is that me and my family enjoy the layouts. It’s just that as well as enjoying the layouts for myself I like to know that other’s like them too – striving to improve my layouts is what I do to feel like I’m ‘myself’, as well as a mum and a housewife, if that makes sense.
Anyway, I’ll stop babbling and show you the pages. I hope you don’t mind me having this little rant on here! If you can spare a minute to leave me a comment, whether it’s layout love or constructive criticism, I’d really appreciate it 🙂
