Color me HAPPY.......

The newest issue of Somerset Memories is hitting the bookstores this weekend and that's my art on the cover !
Talk about a HUGE surprise !
Here is my article, "happy mistakes" which I knew was going to be a spread in this issue, but the cover....I still can't believe it !!!

These are my transparencies that I created and kept hidden from everyone, except for my dear friend Laura. She was the only one besides my family who knew what they looked like and I want to thank her here for all her support and kind words. And I think maybe she's just as excited as I am that they are now out for everyone to see !
I discovered this morning that taking pictures of magazine pages with pictures is just not that easy...lots of glare.

Of course I could have scanned them, but call me lazy.

So here is the end of your sneek peak....hope you enjoyed it. Now run out this weekend and see if you can find yourself a copy at your local Barnes and Noble or Borders. If you're lucky enough to have a subscription, then it might actually be in your mailbox today !!!

  5. W@W! They gave you A LOT of magazine space! I just went on-line and ordered a 2 year subscription to Somerset STUDIO! I'll have to go to the bookstore for a copy of the "Memories". Is one mag more "scrapbook" and the other more "artsy"?

    ANYWAY! Congratulations!!!!!!!!
