So Excited…

I was just on the Memory Makers website and this jumped out at me…

It is Blake’s 2nd cover and I am thrilled and honored that MM even considered me for this. They are so good to me 🙂

The story behind this layout is exhausting but here’s the short version. MM emailed me about one of my favorite lo’s. They wanted it for the Nov. cover. Of course I was so excited and I mailed it to them immediately. After quite a few weeks, MM contacted me again and said that the pic and the pattern papers on my lo were not photographing well and were not going to work on the cover. They asked if I could redo the layout with another photo and different paper. So I said yes. Well, somewhere in there we had a mis-communication and I ended up having only 1 day to redo the lo, well what I thought was one day. I was at work and missed a phone call that was telling me that the lo would have to be overnighted on that day that I was actually working on it. So when I got home from work, I got an email which said that I needed to contact them by 4:00 or someone else would be given my assignment. I freaked out. I didnt want MY cover to be assigned to anyone else.
So basically, I did this lo in 35 minutes and rushed it across town and made it to Fed-Ex with about 10 minutes to spare. I cannot tell you how stressful this whole thing was but now looking at the final result, I can say it was well worth it 🙂

This is a copy of the original that didn’t photograph well. I had to redo THIS actual one into a 8.5×11 and take off the journaling before I sent it in to them though. It is all Cosmo Cricket and it is still one of my favorites…
