Do you recognize this adorable little girl? A few months ago Creating Keepsakes emailed me and asked me if they could use a photo from this shoot that I did for their COVER LAYOUT!! I was so excited and just so honored that they wanted to use one of my photos!! I quickly emailed her parents to ask permission and they were of course thrilled too!
A couple of days after that Creating Keepsakes emailed me again and asked me if I would create two layouts with the photo. They wanted me to send both of them in and then they would choose their favorite to use on the cover of the issue!! I was again super excited and of course, I said yes! Man, was that pressure! I know I create layouts all the time and have been published a lot but this was a big deal! I don’t think I have ever been that nervous creating a layout before! I mean, what if I sent them in and they didn’t like either of them enough to put on the cover! Scary stuff!!
I was so excited to see this in my mailbox the other day! It is so fun to actually see it in print and to hold it in my hands! And, naturally, her parents were thrilled too! They are being a little modest about it, but I told them they should shout it from the rooftops and tell everyone! It’s not often that your daughter gets chosen to be on the cover of a magazine that gets mailed to people all around the world!
Unfortunately there was an editorial mistake and they accidentally removed the credit info and supply list at the last minute to move some things around and then it didn’t get put back on. Kind of a bummer, I know. The super nice folks at CK feel so bad! But, nonetheless, this is huge for me and I am so thrilled and honored!! You can see this layout up close and you can also view the alternate layout I created with the same photo at this link. The supply lists are there as well.
Thanks for stopping by and for letting me share this with you!! I am blessed to have had such amazing opportunities in my life!! Fun stuff!!!
