I'm entering this in the texture challenge if it's still open. I thought I would show you here, too, so I can include a close up pic of some of the detail. Plus it is the first non-scraplifted page that I have done in aaages, and I really like it! TFL!
Thanks ladies! The colors are a little off in these pics...the background paper is kind of a lime green, a little more cheery looking than it appears here. I was in a hurry to take the pic because I was being summoned to play Hungry Hungry Hippos by a not very patient 4 year old!
Have you ever submitted one of your layouts Katie?? I think you'd have an awesome chance at being published. I really do! Your style is amazing and this page is not an exception. JUST LOVE IT!!!!!!! wow!!!!

I hate you.
I don't hate you, I just hate it when you enter really great pages in a challenge and then I have no chance of winning. ha ha ha ha That is an awesome page! I love everything about it, and it's going into my lift folder. In fact, you might see it lifted for the 'lift challenge if I can get some time to scrap before it ends.

Thank you so much for the compliments, ladies! I acutally have submitted two or three layouts before and of course I never heard anything back. I realize that you probably have to be a little more diligent than that! Haha! And I have only submitted to Scrapbooks, Etc. because that is the only magazine I get. I guess I could probably look around for some other places to submit to because let's face it...if anyone was willing to publish something I had done I would of course buy the mag! One problem that I usually have is that I don't keep good track of the products that I use. I never really thought about submitting things before you all told me to so most of my embellishments are in a storage box with no labels or anything, and I have such a mishmash of paper (and use a lot of scraps) that I would have no clue about some of that as well. I will try to be better about that in the future, but for my current stash of supplies it's kind of too late I think! Like the green polka dotted paper that I used in "tomboy"...that was scraps leftover from my Christmas cards last year. NO IDEA who made it. I think it came from the open stock paper at Michaels' but I don't even remember for sure!
Oh, that is soooo cute! You may not have lifted it, but it's being lifted soon...
