went scrapbook shopping trying to get published

Okay stop laughing if you are I know it is a high set goal but here is why. My scrabook room is only missing one thing, a framed published lo from me! I have only submitted one of my pages and did not hear anything back but that was a christmas page and even if it could somehow get published it would not match my room. SOOOOOO.... I went to hobby lobby and bought hot pink accents and paper. Remember the chandelier transparency I bought? Well I am cutting them out one by one and hanging them from the top of my page with rhinestones!!! The page is on my scrapbook room and I think will be called from trash to treasure unless anyone else has any thing better. The title goes with my journaling.
I want the page to look like a boutique. So wish me good look on the next week it will take me to create it LOL! Also any idea's would help Smile

I think it sounds like a wonderful plan and can't wait to see the end lo. So now I have a question: where do you go to submit in hopes of getting published? I've never tried such a thing but think it would be wonderful. Good Luck!

Can't wait to see it, it sounds like a really fun page. Good luck with getting it published, how fun to have a published page of your scrapbooking room in your scrapbooking room. Even if it doesn't get published I would frame the LO and hang it up.

Oh, yes, that would be a problem ... start keeping track now! Just keep a notebook with your scrap stuff and as you use stuff jot it down ... put the title at the top, and then you have it Smile
