My eldest sister, Elizabeth, just won second place in a scrapbooking contest! The prize layout features the lovely picture of Lily and her laughing auntie, yours truly. I'm extra excited since I've been promised a duplicate of this layout, which is one of my all-time favorites (though they all seem to be among my all-time favorites).
Of course, it's not the first time E's work has been recognized, and it won't be the last. She now has a semi-regular gig with Simple Scrapbooks, including this article that also features layouts by Susie and Suzanne, who are occasional readers of any day a beautiful change. So congrats to all!
