An apology

Honesty is the Best policy!

I want to apologise to Christine Millar....my first ever published LO was in CP this week and I have to apologise to Christine as the work was not solely mine. I did not know that the LO she did for a class for Scrapping with CF was copyrighted and I thought that if I changed some of the work then it would be ok to publish the work.

I WAS WRONG!

I really didn't know I was doing something fraudulent and have written to CP to ask for a retraction to be printed as well as talking to Christine and apologising.

I feel absolutely awful about this and am preparing myself for the ramifications. I know that I may lose some scrapping friends over this but I need to post this apology to try and make things up to Christine.

Hi Malinda,
I'm glad we were able to talk about the publishing last night and I know that it was an honest mistake, so I thank you for the public apology, but please don't be worrying about it anymore.
Happy scrapping!
Chris.

Mal, it's a lesson for us all. I can't see you losing scrapping friends over it......That would be mean spirited.
