A little bit of awesome-ness and some ME time

Can't show it on the blog for another month or so but if you get Scrapbooking Memories Magazine, check out page 88. There is a cute little kid on there and he is all mine. Yep my very first publication in SBM and I am a BIG bit excited to say the least lol.
With this publication, that makes 2 of my scrapbooking goals complete for 2010. One more magazine to go and I will have accomplished most of my scrapbooking goals for the year. The great news about that is the in the next month or so CK will be publishing some of my layouts in the Aussie Reader gallery- gotta love that!
After all my 'marathons' over the weekend (not of the athletic variety but of the marking and housework variety) I finally decided that last night was the perfect time for ME time - something which has been a rare treat over the past month or so. I tried doing this layout about a month ago and didn't get anywhere with it. I found it late last night buried under some paperwork that I hadn't filed. Filing complete, I managed to pull it together reasonably quickly and have to say that I am reasonably pleased with the result:
Now that I have got that page done, I am hoping the inspiration and mojo will stay with me long enough to do some more.
No doubt, I will be back to post if I do manage to create more LOL.
Me xoxoxoxox

Love the layering! I understand marathon weeks- it's so nice to take time out for oneself at the end of a week like that!
