It's my first layout to be published in a magazine and I am SOOOOO excited. If you subscribe to Somerset Memories, turn to page 138 and I'm on the bottom half of the page. Well, not me personally, but my layout of my Great Great Grandmother, Tempe Potts Spriggs. In case you haven't seen the layout, here it is!
It's a huge honor for me to be published. Submitting to scrapbooking magazines was one of my "duties" while on the Digital Elite Team at Digital Scrapbook Place. I loved submitting my layouts, but this has been my only acceptance. I don't set out to create a layout for a magazine. I still focus on creating pages for me and my family. For me, scrapbooking is all about preserving memories and sharing my photos. But a little recognition is OK too! Thanks for sharing my joy!

Well, I have been thinking about opening an Etsy store for almost a year. Now I have finally done it! For those of you who haven't found Etsy, it's a marketplace on the web for handcrafted or vintage items. I have one item in my store at the moment, but will be adding more over the next few days. If you have ideas or suggestions of items for my store, by all means, give me a shout out! Right now I'm going to start off with some photo note cards and prints. But I hope to add some digi-scrap kits in the near future. Here is the link to my store: Di Turpin Designs

So, it has been 3 months since my last post! I warned at the beginning that I would probably not be good at keeping this up! Yesterday was my first day as a DET Alumni. I have served on the creative team for Digital Scrapbook Place for a year and am actually welcoming the break. I hope to be able to focus more on this blog, creating layouts for me and maybe even creating some digital scrapbooking kits! Thanks to DSP for their support and for allowing me to promote their products. They are an awesome group of designers and I am privileged to work with them. Here is my final layout, thanking them for the great fun I had and a few more that I finished this week as well.
