Rain and scrappy news

Can you believe the crazy weather we are having? I don't think I have ever seen rain like the rain that poured on Saturday. I now know what our garden would look like with a pool! 
I was disappointed to find out that the Scrapbooker of the Year competition in Scrapbook Magazine is only open to UK residents this year. But I can console myself in the fact that they are going to feature me in their 'Introducing' article next spring. According to the mag ; 'As part of our quest to discover fresh new talent, we'll be introducing a new designer every issue...'.  I get to pick out four of my favourite LO's to be featured. I'm really excited about it, but since the article won't appear until well into next year (haven't got an exact date yet) I'm hoping the excitement doesn't wear off before it's in print!  It's hard to pick out four favourites, but I don't have to send them in for a few months, so I have a while to decide. My favourites change all the time!  
I also found out I'm going to have another LO in the next issue of Creativity! Life. I do have one other piece of scrappy news but I can't share yet :) 
It really has been a funny old week or two; I was all excited about my good news and my SIL had a new baby. But sadly, my uncle passed away the same day my new niece was born. Made me think I should live each day to the fullest. 
My LO for today is another happy memory from our honeymoon!
