Open Call{eta!}

Here we go again! We are having another open call for unpublished talent. Submit any one, unpubbed layout of yours for a chance at a Concroption prize by February 9.

Abigail is joining us this week for her 15 minutes of scrapbook fame.
her bio: Hello! My name is Abigail, but I generally go by Abby. I'm 20 years old and more than usually strange for my age. I like tea (and I'm adamant that it must be Earl Grey and from Twinings of London) and parasols and foggy days, and when I'm not scrapbooking or doing some other sort of crafty pursuit, I'm usually to be found with my nose buried in a book, watching some costume drama or other and sighing over the beautiful dresses, or writing historical Epics. I'm also fond of photography, rodeos, and crime-show dramas such as Criminal Minds, CSI, or the more light-hearted but tremendously fun Psych, and someday I would like to go skydiving! In short, I'm a bit of an oddball, and I wouldn't have it any other way!
I think I need hardly add that I am absolutely thrilled to have been chosen for this week's "famer"! I have been constantly inspired by the layouts posted on this blog, and I hope that I am able to inspire someone else in my turn! :)

and favorite UnPubbed page:
Here are ours...
Chrissy:
Corey:

Jude:
This LO is not one of my favorite new ones, but it is one of my New Year's Goal ones... Meaning, I used some old "stash" items to make it. That was a challenge, as I have fallen way out of love with these papers and embellishments. I literally had to tell myself to back away from some of my favorite go-to products. So, grab some of your stash and go!
Melissa:

Remember to link us to your layout by February 9!

**Memorable Season's is extending their UnPubbed discount code!! Head on over and check out their selection, I promise you'll find something you love! Using the code "unpubbed" you will get 20% off of your entire order!

This is my favorite layout I have created lately because I LOVE how the picture captures the special bond between my dad and his 93 year old Mom, and unfortunately this layout has never gotten picked up(Actually my work has never made it anywhere other than e-zines..lol)

sorry about that, here is the public link... man, i gotta get my head on straight. i am seriously typing through tears, though.

Octopusouphut said...

Okay, I'm going to jump in. I love this LO I did a few weeks ago because of how the pp I used really captures the subject matter.

I've never been published anywhere...so, there ya go :D

melissa said...

Pegasus said...

I thought I'd post one here. It was hard for me to choose one, though. This layout is of some children in St. Marc's Square in Italy feeding the pigeons and loving every minute of it even though they were filthy! I just couldn't help taking pictures of them.

Chasity Grace said...

This is a layout i did earlier this week. it is very simple compared to what i usually do, but it fits perfectly. I have never been so emotionally moved while doing a lo before this one. I cried while writing my journaling. Scrapbooking has become therapy for me because its turned into a great outlet for me to deal with my greif.

here is the link. TFL!!!

Oh my gosh! I LOVE the idea of this blog!! I just found it today, and I'm adding it to my bookmarks.

Here is my favorite LO because it was done in a fit of frustration. It took all of 20 minutes to complete(my fastest time ever.) I did the LO for my album about my most difficult semester in college.

I'd like to play! Recently I've started trying digi layouts, and this is one I recently finished. It took me over a year to figure out how to do something with this phenomenal photo of my dd, and I was so happy with the way it turned out that I'd love for a few other people to see it.

Magpie said...

Oh no--I am realizing that most of the links everyone has placed in the comments don't show up in full, so I am getting error messages when I try to cut and paste. Here is mine again--I am going to break it into two lines so it all fits in the comments, so you may have to take a space out to make it work.
