I agree with the product issue--LOs are AWOL in there, and I get the mag for LOs--but I am not so sorely disappointed with CK itself. Some stuff I don't like--I'm sorry, I think CD makes beautiful pages, but I can see nothing in them I can try myself. That given, I like Brian's last page. I love Ali. Jen Maguire's column is growing on me (I know, it's been there a while). I liked some of the bigger recent articles--passions, so we could see the SOY finalists, new color combo, color or B&W photo. Nice LOs and ideas. It's not perfect or exactly what I want, but it's one of the better mags IMO.
I really want an article that issues challenges like online. Something that gives me new ideas to stretch myself with topic, photos, products, journaling, and so on. I like my style, I know more than the basics, so anything that gives me new, manageable directions to go in will help me become a better scrapper. And if the challenge article had LOs to go with it, I'd be even happier.
