american crafts contest

It's a very *exciting* day for me - I actually entered a scrapbook page contest at my local scrapbook store. The premise was you could do a baby page or an American Crafts page, so I chose the latter. Granted, I have a ton of baby pages to do, but I remembered this sweet picture of Avery and her cousin AJ and really wanted to use it. Plus, I was floored when I saw this paper that matched both of their sweaters! It's meant to be. Avery and AJ are only 4 months apart in age and he and his family moved in next door about a year ago. It's been so much fun having them so close and the 2 kids have really bonded. They'll be in the same grade at the same school, so it is kind of like they are twins! I'm sure they'll be asked that quite a bit. They might play up that angle too - ha! I'm not sure if this page will win me any prizes, but I love how it turned out and will be proud to at least display it at the store during April. I might have to vote for it more than once, bwahahahaha! I haven't peeked at the other entries yet, so I have no idea how mine stands up, but we shall see. I have a friend that entered as well, so we're going to peek at all the entries soon. I may have to enter in each catagory each month just so I get myself motivated to crop! I'm only, let's see.... yeah - 4 years behind. I did Avery's first year and then stopped (something about a stamping habbit).

Thanks for stopping by!
