**EDIT: I'm a dork! It's page 92, not 94. haha** Ok, yes I'm excited! This is my first time being published in the Better Homes and Gardens' Scrapbooks, Etc. magazine. :D The November/December issue just hit the stands and I just happened to see it when I was grocery shopping this morning. This layout means SO much to me. Thanksgiving 2004 I handed out cardstock squares with everyone's names on them and asked them to write something they were thankful for. (babies and small ones had theirs written by the parents) :D I didn't have any photos from that day since I was hosting and just didn't have time to take any. So I made a layout anyway, using these name tiles. We didn't know it at the time, but this was the last Thanksgiving we had with my Dad, who passed away the following February from lung cancer. So to have this layout published means a GREAT deal to me, especially at this time of year. :D
Lots of good things happening right now. :)
God is good!
