My LOs have been picked!

I am so pleased! At Oscraps one can put a favored LO in the monthly Standing O forum and I've just gotten picked for my first one. It is for my take on a quote challenge. It was a very creative challenge! Sara asked us to pick a photo we were wanting to scrap, think of words it brought to mind, then find a quote that embodied the feeling. I picked a photo from our visit to Puerto Rico on a birding trip in 1996. I've done it once before, but this is much better.

If that weren't enough, my LO "Enjoy" was selected for the last page (Happy Ending) of the August issue of the Artisan Notebook! I've never had anything like this before, now two at once!

  1. Congratulations Jean! You do fabulous pages... it's really no surprise to me that the publications would choose something you created. We know your work is wonderful, I'm glad others are getting to see it too!

  2. Well done, Jean! That´s quite an accolade but one that´s well deserved. This is a beautiful page with the smooth simplicity of the background contrasting with the roughness of the stone in your photo. Apt quote too.

  3. Congratulations Jean! Both honors are well deserved. You continue to be an inspiration to me. I do remember this photo from before...seems I was pretty impressed with the LO back them, too! This one is so perfect for the quote. Even the papers seem to have a stone architecture look to them. Great job!

  4. Thank you all for your comments and years of support! I keep scrapping even without our old Deco-Pages home, but keeping in touch with you through our blogs sure does help keep the fires burning.
