Some Exciting News!!

Hi Everybody!
A while ago (almost a year now), Northridge Publishing requested a couple of my projects for the Cricut Magazines.  I was over the moon excited!  But when they weren't in the issue they had told me, I thought they had decided not to use them.  

Since they are an all digital publication now, I have been using their handy app on my iPad.  But I had been having trouble with it for a couple of months, and been unable to open any of the issues.  Finally it started to work!  And imagine my shock when I got to the August issue..............

and saw this.......

Eeeeeeeeeek!  I was so happy to see this, and wanted to share the exciting news :D

It was also a super awesome thing to see this:

They are one of my favorite stamp companies, and am happy to be able to spread the JB love!

TFL, and I hope everyone has a chance to craft today :)
