My Job

This layout is quite special to me, since it tells the story of my work here at SG. I'm so lucky to have the job I have!

Journaling: "I started working for Scrap Girls in February of 2007. I had just joined the site the previous September, and had just gotten up all my courage to apply to the Layout Artist team the month before. To my great shock and surprise, I was accepted! Then in February, Mandy (who was a partner at the time) asked me if Iíd be willing to add to my responsibilities by basically taking over her job of overseeing all the layout artists. Well, she didnít have to ask me twice! Of course I jumped at the chance to be able to earn a small living doing what I love, not to mention from the comfort of my own home!
I could set my own hours! I could create beautiful layouts and have them published for thousands to see! I could still take care of my little boy and not have to send him to day care! This position was (and continues to be) and absolutely direct blessing from Heavenly Father. I know that there is nowhere else where I could be doing this type of work, that fits me and my personality and creative abilities as well. And while it is sometimes a lot to handle and itís hard to juggle two kids at home with a job as well, it is so so so worth it.
Iím grateful every single day for this job, for this purple place, and especially for the people that make it all possible for me. I really and truly can say that I LOVE my job!"

    Very beautiful Laurel!!
    I love this layout, Laurel - so unique and it tells the story all by itself - it is interesting to read your journaling and see how you got a job at SG - and I am so glad you are here - great layout - great pictures - very unique layout, but exactly what I would expect from you after seeing some of your others. Thanks for the layout and for the reason you love SG! I feel the same way except that I am just a member. Nice work and fun to see.
