{Insert sad smilie here}

I got my Sept/Oct and final issue of Memory Makers Magazine today.
{sniff, sniff}
This has been a great magazine for years and they have been so good to me!
And I am honored to be part of the final class of Masters.
I like to think of us not as the final class, though, but as the reigning class forever and ever!
:)
So as a pathetic little tribute, I thought I would share some of my favorite layouts I did for Memory Makers this past year.
:(
This was my favorite layout from my Masters entry.
It almost did not even get included in the entry because it got voted out by several people who helped me decide what to send.
But I really like this one for some reason so I went out on a limb and included it anyway.
I am glad I did.
And I still really like it.
Supplies: Patterned paper (Basic Grey, My Mind's Eye), Bookplates & brads (Junkitz), Chipboard letters (Heidi Swapp)
This next layout is my favorite one of all the layouts we had to do for the Master Pieces section of each issue of the magazine.
I thought I was soooo clever with my journaling!
:)
Supplies: Patterned paper (October Afternoon, My Minds Eye, Prima), Alphabet stickers (Doodlebug, Making Memories), Chipboard embellishments (Fancy Pants), Paint (Making Memories, Misc (embroidery floss, notebook paper)
These next couple of layouts were published in a recent issue and I just never got around to posting them here.
My first bike!
Check out that stylin' basket on the front!
Supplies: Patterned paper (KI Memories), Alphabet stickers (Making Memories), Stickers & rub-ons (KI Memories), Bling (Heidi Swapp)


Can you tell I *heart* these Making Memories puffy alphas!??!
Supplies: Patterned paper & lace cardstock (KI Memories), Alphabet stickers (Making Memories), Chipboard embellishments (KI Memories, Heidi Swapp), Brads (KI Memories)

This is my final layout for Memory Makers.
{it is in that last Sept/Oct issue}
It is a very random layout for a very random topic.
And it was so much fun to make!
{even though I think it might have taken my hours to finish!}


Supplies: Cardstock (Prism), Patterned paper (KI Memories), Chipboard embellishments (KI Memories, Heidi Swapp), Brads (KI Memories), Metal photo corners (American Crafts), Bookplates (Junkitz), Rub-ons (KI Memories), Stickers (KI Memories), Flowers (Prima), Misc (embroidery floss)
And here is a little favor box I made for the special wedding issue that they were supposed to put out.
They ended up combining the wedding stuff with the Sept/Oct issue and it looks like my favor box got the boot!
But I will share it here anyway!
Supplies: Die cut favor box (Accucut), Patterned paper (KI Memories), Stickers (KI Memories), Scalloped tag (Jenni Bowlin Studios), Misc (ribbon, string)

So bye bye Memory Makers Magazine.
I will miss you!
