Creating Keepsakes

Every now and then I submit a layout to Creating Keepsakes. I highly doubt I'll ever get published there, but I submit from time to time none the less. It's just one of those magazines that I see as really tough to get into.

Every month when my magazine comes the first place I go to is the "10 Standout Readers" section in the hopes of seeing my name. The editiors list 10 layouts that were submitted that stood out to them. Well- the December issue came yesterday. And like I do every month I skip right to that page. And there- on Page 102 is MY name. Kari Ann Sweeney.

I was so excited. I actually jumped up and down and did a little spin. I shouted 'Hooray' to which Bennet and Scout shouted 'Hooray' and clapped their hands and danced with me. We did a little celebration boogie up and down the hall, into Nick's office and back out again.

They didn't publish a layout of mine but I'm still over the moon that they recognized me.
