Cover Girls... Finally!!
It has been my mother's life long dream to see my face in a magazine. Well that never happened during my youth, but it has now that I'm in my 30's!! LOL! I can now finally share this layout of me and Nicole which landed on the cover of Memory Makers Magazine January Issue.
The reason for this post is to share with you guys that an "unknown" can actually get on the cover of a major scrapbooking magazine. I started sending layouts to MMM last year and it took several months for me to get their attention. After a few pages in the reader's gallery, they wrote me to try and submit a layout for consideration for the cover. They wrote to several scrappers and I really thought I had no chance. But I still made a couple of layouts. The second one was for the same call but they needed a simple layout. All of these happened even before I sent in my entries for the Master's Contest. So what I'm saying is, to those who want to get published, just keep sending your layouts. Your call-back may take just a few days to several months but just keep sending them. MMM is always looking for new artists and they will definitely look at your submissions.
Here is the other layout that did not get picked...
