Scrapbook and win...the competitor in me comes out!

TGIF! I love Fridays, it is my favorite day of the week. No homework (for the kids), the knoweldge of not rushing through the morning coffee the next day, and most importantly should I be able to stay awake past 9 pm, I can scrapbook. I used to be a consultant for Close to My Heart, well I still am I, I am just a Jr. consultant and not very active at all. I was my best customer, I love the product but I had a hard time promoting "myself". Any one who has done at home sales knows what I am talking about. The reason I bring this up is because they are holding a contest for National Scrapbooking Month, which is in May. They have all the details and info here at Scrapbook and Share. When I was first involved with Close to My Heart I entered the monthly challenges they had for consultants and I won both that I entered, pretty good huh? So you just never know, you have to be in it to win it.
The following layouts are the ones I submitted and won. It's been quite a while since I did this so my style has changed a bit but they still make me happy.

Entering contests consumed me for a while, not that I entered hardly any but I would think about that more than just going with the creative flow. I wanted nothing more than to be published. I wanted to be able to make a career of something I loved to do. I haven't given up on that dream of course, I just have not limited myself to what I think publishers want to see. I make what I want to make and I don't even limit myself to chronology. I do whatever feels right for that moment. How liberating do what YOU want!

Well, I hope that you will consider entering for a chance to win the Scrap and Share contest and remember, You have to be in it to win it!
