Well, with the latest manufacturing design team calls over, I suppose I can breathe a sigh of relief. When I applied for them, I only had the idea for Classy Scrapper Magazine, and had not plunged full force into my plans. As time went on and I started seriously working on the publication, I started to worry about actually getting picked for the Scenic Route team or the Piggy Tales team. It's definitely a blessing in disguise that I didn't get chosen, as it would have probably been a huge conflict of interest if my layouts for them ended up in other publications. But although I know it's a good thing, I still can't help but wonder what the heck was wrong with my work! These are two of the layouts I did for the SR call and I did my best to work with as much of their product as possible and I honestly took on the assignment as if I was already creating an ad layout for them. Guess that approach didn't work well. What the heck was wrong with these layouts?
Oh well, I've got bigger fish to fry, as they say. Starting the magazine has actually been good for my scrapping. I'm wanting to scrap like mad, with no care for trying to achieve a certain look for getting published. I just want my pages to have good design, look great, and really record the memories for Clayton. Isn't that what it's all about anyway?
