Blog Hopping with my Rejects!

Hello blog friends!

Well, no happy mail today for me from the latest Paper Crafts call. 10 cards submitted, but alas, nothing was selected. That said, I am so, so excited for all the designers that received requests for projects, especially the newbies!!  I still remember getting my first email from Susan Opel requesting one of my cards- it was St. Patrick's Day 2011 and I felt like it was truly my lucky day.

The silver lining in all this is that I get share some of my beloved rejects with you!!  The lovely and talented Amber (of Damask Love fame) is hosting another reject blog hop and I decided to play along. Here are some of my creations by category that will NOT be appearing in an upcoming issue of Paper Crafts magazine. :o)

Spectrum of Color
Twine Friend Card

Dotty Hello

You Rock- Tie Dye Card
(This one was my fave. The kids and I used shaving cream to create this effect and it was a lot of messy fun!)

Silhouettes for Babies and Brides
Princess Baby

First Birthday

Text Style
Lucky Friend
