Submit with Scrapdango Kits

I rarely think of submitting to magazines before I make a layout. Sometimes after the fact I look through and see what calls might fit my page. For those of you that receive Scrapdango Kits, I thought it might be useful to compile a list of current call that would work with the August kits. That way you can jump right in with a plan in mind, and maybe get published! There is also a sketch challenge happening over at the Authentique blog. Get crackin' cause it's due Sept 14!

Most of the magazines right now are looking for Spring layouts. I think the yellows and blues of the Authentique would go perfect with Spring photos. The blue also works well for some of the Winter calls.

Here the links and a few of the specific calls:
