Seeing Spots with S2G!

I was feeling a bit down in the dumps this afternoon as yet another project I worked on and was so proud of was turned down for a magazine publication. So I needed a bit of brightness and cheer..... what better place to turn than Shirley's 2 Girls! Those images always put such a big smile on my face!

This cutie is one I had long admired, but had yet to get inky..... horrors! so out came the fun Cosmo Cricket DeLovely papers, my bright Prima and crochet flowers, sparkly glitter pens. and great trims from May Arts! of course my mood lifted as I was working on it, just as I knew it would.

So the important thing for me to remember is that I must keep on creating even in the midst of rejection. for it is the process of creating that matters. and someplace, somewhere, there is one person who enjoys what I make. and hopefully I am using a talent granted me by God and bringing some pleasure to Him.

If it took the Beatles 12 years to become an overnight success, I guess we've got a few more magazines to submit to! Don't get discouraged Jenn. I just look at it that you enjoyed making it - someone will enjoy receiving it - so even if it didn't get published it is certainly not wasted effort!

I love your card - it's cheerful and bright and I'm glad it cheered you up playing in your craft room!
