PALISADE -- Dori McMillan of Palisade can add published artist to her list of scrapbooking credentials.
McMillan's family tree pages were selected from among thousands of entries to appear in "Memory Makers: Family Tree Page Ideas," a scrapbooking coffee table book due out this summer. She submitted her pages as part of a contest sponsored by KeepsakesTM, a scrapbook enthusiast magazine.
"I'm honored," she said. "It's a thrill to be able to see my work in print."
McMillan's pages feature individual pictures of her family covered with transparent vellum and dye-cut into the shape of leaves. The leaves were placed on branches, creating a literal family tree. For her efforts, she was presented a certificate of participation from the book's publisher and will receive a free copy of the book.
McMillan is an award-winning scrapbook artist whose honors include being commissioned to create a scrapbook that was presented as a wedding gift to country music star Wynonna Judd. She is the owner of The Scrapbook and More, a scrapbooking store in downtown Aitkin. The Scrapbook and More features scrapbook supplies, including papers, embellishments and more.
