all good things

must come to an end.

UnPubbed started almost 2 years ago as an idea amongst friends. A way to give a shout out of validation to those who'd never been given the "Published" title. A way to let our participants know that we noticed their talent and thought they deserved 15 minutes of fame in a small portion of the scrapbooking world.

As life would have it, new jobs come along and babies are born and sometimes life just gets nuts for a whole group of people all at the same time. We have decided that it's time to bring UnPubbed to an end. We've sincerely enjoyed getting to know all of our Famers and participants and many friendships have been formed through this little challenge blog.

UnPubbed has served it's purpose for now and we hope you all enjoyed your 15 minutes of scrapbook fame.

Nothing lost, you can still participate for prizes from our awesome sponsors!

What's easier than an open call? What's easier than lifting a Famer?

Open Call with Mica

This week's famer is Mika Akers.

Find Mica on her blog here.

Her Bio:
Hi all! My name is Mika (aka mica). I have been a Mississippian for a little over 3 years now. I live with my husband of 18 years and we have 14-year-old daughter. I discovered scrapbooking about a year before we moved here. When a friend of mine showed me her overseas trip album, I fell in love with it and immediately took up this hobby. Although I didn't scrap at all for 2 years after we moved here, I have been seriously scrapping since December last year. I don't have a particular style. I try to keep my pages simple enough. I love scraplifting and working with sketches. They eliminate a great deal of my frustration and make my layouts versatile. That's why I have been a regular visitor to UnPubbed! I am so excited to be a famer here. DTs and the readers here never fail to get me inspired. Thank you all for motivating me and inspiring me.
