I have decided to start early on a New Year Resolution.
The basic rule of thumb is you cannot get published if you do not submit.
So in 2011 I will be submitting more layouts and cards.
Each time I do, there will be a link added to the right hand side column to point you to what I have entered. 
Just under the wire, I know, but I have completed two layouts and submitted them to a sketch challenge hosted by a local Scrapbook store here in Alberta.  Hope I win!  The winner gets a copy of Becky Fleck's newest book 'Page Maps 2'.   I do like sketches to help get pages done quickly!

Happy New Year to you all!
