Hooray !!!

It's official and it really has happened this time. I have a layout featured in the current (October) issue of SCRAPBOOKS ETC. magazine - which is a great US scrapbooking magazine.
The reason I say 'really happened', is that the last time I had a layout accepted by a US magazine, I packaged it up and mailed it, they photographed it and then in the month that it was due to be printed, the magazine (Scrapbook Answers USA) was sold to another company who ceased its publication - it never happened!
But this time, I have waited patiently since April to hear that it IS IN PRINT - I can't wait to see it myself.
It's featured in the MAKING IT YOURS section which is where I was given a photo of someone elses layout and needed to create my layout using theirs as the inspiration - I loved it. Here is what I sent them.

Did I say how excited I am ?
Woohoo !
