Ode to SNR!

Welcome to the friends of Scrapbook News and Review!
I am so honored to be a part of the special staff that is SNR! If you haven't had a chance to check out the monthly online magazine, I would really encourage you to do so! There are articles, tutorials, sketches and TONS of inspiration in every single issue! You can check out how the subscriptions work HERE. For only $4.99 a month, you get access to all of the layouts, cards, ATC's, Mixed Media and more in each issue! You won't find a deal like this on any newsstands!

And, YOU can be published in SNR, too! All you have to do is check out the montly calls and submit your work. Just go to the SNR Home Page and click on the tab that says "Calls" for the most up to date calls and the submission forms!

Don't forget to visit the SNR Forums, as well! There are amazing, inspiring discussions happening every day!

I want to share with you some of my work that was published in the May issue!

Eggtastic was for the "Clean & Simple" Style Spotlight Call. It's based on a sketch by Pamela Young and features my kiddos having a great time doing their egg hung on Easter morning.

Gettin' Hosed was for the "Funny Family Photos" call. Most people immediately thought of the non-furry members of their family doing funny things, but we have a furry member of our family that keeps us laughing all the time- especially when he plays with the hose! There is hidden journaling under the photo (just pull on the tab) that tells the story of Fergus playing with the hose and even occasionally spraying US with it!

Dance was for one of the sketch calls for May. It was a gorgeous sketch! I love the way SNR does their sketches- you get to see the sketch and then several different takes on it- different styles, adding photos, rotating the sketch, changing the balance and weight, and even using it for cards, altered projects and ATC's!

Thank you so very much for stopping by my blog! I hope that you will become a follower and visit often! To celebrate the FUN of this SNR event on my blog, I would love to give away a RAK! Please leave a comment here and I will choose a winner on Wednesday, July 7th! Be sure to come back to see if you won!
Have a wonderful day!
