cover girl



i normally don't discuss my accomplishments here. but i'm super excited about this one! i can't believe that my layout is on the cover of the last ever simple - it came as a surprise because no one told me. it's been a dream of mine to get a cover. the photo was taken by the marvelous tina cockburn and the papers are october afternoon.

here it is before i sent it in. without the huge label sticker across it.

Congratulations on the cover!! Now that SS is no longer I want to go back and scraplift the cover layouts, and yours will be the first I lift, its gorgeous! If you want a copy without the address label then head to your nearest magazine store. =)

Oh, and when I got a PC cover, they ended up sending me like 20 copies. It seemed like everyday I got another one in the mail. So, maybe it will work the same for SS.

Congrats, Celeste. It's beautiful. I haven't been able to find SS to see it in person (seems it's a collectors issue, with YOUR cover!) but it is gorgeous!
