Wee Memories August Blog Hop!

Hello!  Happy Saturday!  It's our first Wee Memories Challenge of August which means that we have our blog hop!  What makes it even better is that it's our new designers first challenge!  I am so excited about our new girls that we have joining us!  What an amazing talented bunch!  You should have arrived here from Amy's blog!  If not we would love for you to hop with us, check out the Wee Memories blog!

Our sponsor this week is Graphic 45!  Our challenge is Masculine creations!   

I pulled out a few background stamps and the going set by Hero Arts and came up with this:

I like this fun and clean design!  I am so loving the pennants lately!  :>  And what's more masculine than a truck?

I want to share some exciting news.  Last Saturday I received an email that one of my cards was picked up for publication in Cards magazine January 2012 issue!  I can't tell you how happy I was when I saw the email!  I literally screamed out loud and ran outside to tell my husband and Father who were building my fence, lol!  Than I called a few of my friends who are also crafty!  I cannot believe the response I have received from my friends and family.  I was so excited how could I not have posted it as my facebook status!  The comments and likes on it was so kind!  And since I've had a lot of them when I see them or message me and tell me congrats, and this is people who aren't crafty and I wouldn't think "got it"  a lot of I am going to buy it and you can sign it for me!  LOL!!!  I am so happy I finally took the time and courage to submit!  I was so scared of rejection.  I finally told my husband you know what I am going to do it and it's okay if it doesn't go anywhere this is my hobby and I do it because I love it!  I want to encourage you to try too!

Your next stop on the hop is Brandi! I hope that you will join us this week.  Don't forget that with summer our challenge is two weeks long (giving you enough time to play!!)  And our challenge runs until Friday August 26th 11:59 PST.   I hope that you are enjoying the hop!
