Have you ever thought about applying for the Scrapbook Hall of Fame? If you don't know what it is, I am going to enlighten you. Creating Keepsakes Magazine has a contest for people to enter and they choose like 10 winners to win money and also be published in their Hall of Fame issue! The winners are also published in several more issues of Creating Keepsakes throughout the year. They give you very specific guidelines on what you can and cannot do. I know several of the ladies at the store have applied before and they may have not made it into the Hall of Fame but I know someone did get published by entering the contest.
I have been thinking about submitting layouts just to say that "Yeah, I entered the Hall of Fame this year." But then again do I really need to? I can't decide. I like the way I scrapbook but I don't see my style in magazines, but that is okay because I like my stuff!! That is what scrapbooking is all about-you need to like what you are doing for yourself...no one should tell you that they don't like your stuff! I am a very basic scrapbooker-but I LOVE to journal on my pages and most of it is handwritten.
So the question is should I or shouldn't I submit for the Hall of Fame for 2008? Here is the link to submit http://www.creatingkeepsakes.com/images/ftp_images/ck/downloads/2007/HOF08_adv3.pdf.
The deadline is February 11th! So LMK if you decide to do it-maybe it will get me motivated to do it. I can tell you I hope a few ladies at Windy City Scrapbooking do-because I think they really are talented people...but again I like that they scrapbook for themselves not just to be published!
If you decide to enter--GOOD LUCK! And if you don't enter-Happy Scrapping to you this weekend! :)
