The thrill of victory... the agony of defeat

I am posting today with some very exciting news to share.... I just found out that a card I submitted to Paper Crafts Magazine has been accepted for publication. It's my first time being published (if you don't count the Ads by Kids contest I won in the 6th grade), so I am just thrilled. But with the one card that was accepted, four were declined.
Dr. Amber had the brilliant idea to showcase these unloved treasures through a reject blog hop.
Below, I am sharing three of the four cards I submitted for the circus call.

Tons of Love

Nuts for You

Party Animal

  2. Are you serious? These are rejects?? I looooooove the peanuts and the last one....I love them ALL actually!!! Isn't rejection FUN!

  3. Congrats on your 1st pub! I absolutely adore these projects!

  4. All of these projects are super stinkin' cute!! Clearly you were inspired by that Circus call, because these are all truly adorable! Congrats on your first pub!!

  5. Those first two are totally publishable! The competition must have been FIERCE.

  6. OMG! Those peanuts are about the cutest bunch of cuteness I've seen! Selfishly - I'm happy to see these in the blog hop because they are just that fab! I don't want to have to wait to see this kind of beautiful crafting!
