October is my new favourite month!

It wasn't that long ago that I was feeling a little uninspired and didn't have much on my plate to get my scrapbooking mojo flowing.
Talk about a complete turn around over these last few days!
I'm so excited with the amount of work that has come my way and some really exciting stuff to say the least.

Scrapbooking Memories emailed me and asked for a layout then a few days later I was offered by them to be part of a challenge using a range of products I've never heard of - I can't wait to get my parcel in the mail.

Scrapbook Creations wants one of my mini albums with a step by step on it which is great and also I have my Keeping It Simple article to write for this month too.

I have some new pretty papers from Scrap Art who asked if I could create a new layout for them. On top of that, Pam wanted to know if I may like to teach a class some time - wow!

I received my assignment from my Canadian photography mentor just the other day also and I have to complete that over the next couple of weeks. I need to go with my 'model' to a new location and do a shoot. It's designed to make me think of my location and look for opportunities and places that are suitable to shoot.

Then yesterday, while I was at work I opened my emails and nearly fainted!!!
I read it and re read it and then read it again. Then I printed it out, highlighted the title of the email and ran to my nearest scrapbooking work buddy waving the email in my hand.
It read :
CONGRATULATIONS! SIMPLE SCRAPBOOKS REQUESTS YOUR LAYOUT

So after my heart rate returned to normal I was able to talk again. I'm pretty excited about this. I'm always excited about any scrapbook acceptance to be honest but I had been trying for a long time to get into Simple Scrapbooks USA.

I have two other scrapbooking related things that I'm not sure I can speak about yet but they're pretty cool and I can't wait to share as soon as I can.

So, October is my new favourite month - the planets must definately be aligned for me right now! Thanks always for your encouragement and for dropping by and leaving me a message - it's lovely!
