Last year, I submitted my first back pocket mini album for publication to Northridge Publications in hopes it would be picked up for they Spring edition of Create: Mini Albums. After the deadline passed, I forgot about it completely, until I checked my email one night. There sat my very first “Yes! We want your project!” email!
I was so excited! I jumped around my living room and had to call one of my closest friends, Jess. Yep. She’s a big reason why I even submitted to begin with. I’m not one to submit my work at all, much less regularly to publications. I’ve done it only 1 or 2 times before this one, mostly because I just forget to. Jess gave me the big push to submit THIS project. And her gamble was right. It was picked up. So yes. In spite of the 3 hour time difference, I had to call her.
After the excitement died down, I filled out the information they needed, boxed up my mini, and mailed it off for publication!
You can see the full 4 PAGE SPREAD they did in this issue of the book (page 78). It is available online now and is shipping to Barnes & Noble, Hobby Lobby, local scrapbook store, and more right now!
