Scrapbooking memories commissioned journaling article!! / "photo prop fail"

So I'm tooting my own horn a bit here. But I just had to share this exciting news.

You can imagine my delight when Scrapbooking memories contacted me back in November last year out of the blue for a magazine"feature".
I was even more shocked to learn that they wanted to commission me to write an article and scrap a layout to go with it!
The brief was broad ; just to make it about Journalling.
So I wrote an article on "journalling outside of the square"
Basically methods and tips to kill your writers block when journalling and get you thinking about more than just the standard, who, what,where and date.

So my first article was published In March in Scrapbooking Memories, Volume 15, No 7, page 74.

Notice the gorugeous Ah Scrap embellishments on there!
