submit, submit, SUBMIT!


That's my scrapping motto at the moment. I'm trying to explore my options as far as my scrapbooking is concerned. Persistence is the key, as my Mum keeps telling me. "Keep submitting and don't be discouraged by knockbacks", she says. And Mum is usually right with these type of things...and this time is no exception.

I've had a couple of exciting opportunities open themselves up to me over the last week. Firstly, I submitted an entry to join the Scrapboxx Design Team (a well-known Aussie online scrapbooking store/community). While I didn't get the top spot, I did place within the top three and have been selected to be Guest Design Team Member for November 2005. SO COOL!!!! Secondly, upon mentioning this to the owner of my local Scrapbooking Store, she re-suggested that I teach classes at the store for her! I've hence accepted and I am due to start in October :) So, things are moving along nicely! Now, if I can just crack the publishing nut.....

Here's a pikki of my Design Team entry. Yes, they are all photos of me :) The middle section is a mini-book that opens to reveal all of the reasons why I want to be a part of the Team...and I still do! This is definitely another one of my scrapping goals that I'd like to achieve. We'll see what happens - I'll just keep submitting and entering comps and you never know what other doors may open up for me!
