Huge News!!

So, I don't submit layouts much to the mags. After a few knockbacks, I thought "why bother?". I've probably sent in a handful of work over the past year.

I saw that SM were having a "freestlye" theme in an upcoming addition, so thought why not...Let's try again! Well......guess what??

I'm being considered to be published!! Won't count me chickens just yet, as it still has to get in the mag. I don't think I'll believe it, til I see it...in black and white!! What a cool Christmas present. Still in shock, but very excited indeed!!

Thanks to the lovely girls I caught up with today, who encouraged me to keep submitting. Thankyou...I will! :)

In other news, today I caught up at Lexie's house with some of the Qld Scrap girls!! I really love catching up with these fab girls, they make me laugh and smile!! I always have a great time.
All up there was, Amanda, Lexie, Gypsy, Peggy, Sandy, Nadine, Leanne, Cass and Lu! Was great seeing Nadine, Cass and Lu again!! :)
Our guest of honor was the delightful, Sandy, who is up here holidaying with family for Christmas. She's up from Melbourne for a few weeks. It was lovely to meet you, Sandy!

Can you believe I took one pic all day?? This one is of Sandy and me...



In other news, we took the kids for a trip into the City last night. We parked at Southbank, had dinner, then walked across the bridge to see the BIG(and I mean BIG) Christmas tree outside the Casino. Zac was mesmerized!! We walked down the mall to the Myer windows, which they all thought were quite impressive, then back over to Southbank for the fireworks...Well, we got to the bridge and they started...We still got to see some of the show, then we headed home.



We have our Christmas tomorrow with DH's family...so, I'll be sure to have a few pics from that tomorrow!! :)

Chat soon,
Chelle Xx
