Submissions for Somerset Life Magazine

Are there certain things you are "Hooked On"? I love magazines and I am definitely hooked on the publications that Stampington & company publish. I decided to take another chance and send in two more submissions to Somerset Life Magazine for some of the current challenges that they were holding. It's kinda scary at first, but since I got my feet wet with being published in the new "Apron.ology Magazine" I figured I would give it another try. I guess they can only say NO, so why not take a chance... It's this just the sweetest picture. I wanted to use this in my creation.
The challenge was titled, "Celebrations of Life". The requirements for the challenge was to send in something you would use to decorate for a celebration or party. I decided to send in my idea for a Baby Shower centerpiece. I had come up with this idea for a friend to use for her daughter's Baby shower a few months ago. They were a big hit. I found this wonderful teapot at the resale shop for $2.50. It was perfect pink and blue, what more could I ask for. The tiny roses screamed baby! I nestled the photo on top of the teapot and added a sheer ribbon bow with some of my favorite buttons to the handle. I just placed the teapot on a glass cake dish and added some iridescent shed.
I put a photo on each side of the teapot so that it could be seen from wherever the guests were sitting. The photo is embellished my favorite gold paint, silk flower petals that have rhinestone centers, old buttons and ribbon. I also added the word CHERISH. It's a wonderful centerpiece to make for a baby shower and so many of the resale shops have teapots. It's fun to mix and match the teapots and have a different one for each table.
The second challenge I submitted something for was titled, "Sisters". I decided to make one of my memory boxes that I have on My Etsy Shop. I found an old photo of my two sisters and myself. We were all dressed up with our Easter bonnets and matching capes!
Old buttons, ribbon, gold paint and an antique key were used for the embellishments. I'm going to give this to my sisters for Chri
stmas this year.

If you have never submitted any of your creations, let me urge you to take a chance. You could very well be surprised to find out that your work of art has been chosen to be in one of Somersets Magazines. There are many challenges that they run throughout the year. Let me give you a little nudge...Take a look HERE to see what they are currently looking for. It may be scary at first, but once you do it, you will be happy that you did it.

CHERISH...to hold dear.
