Presenting our new DT

Well tomorrow's challenge marks the last one with the current DT.  It has been such a pleasure to work with these ladies.  I hope that you have been inspired by them and I hope that you will continue to visit their blogs on a regular basis to keep up with what they are creating.  I am sure that some of them will be back as guest designers as well.  So we say goodbye to Rhonda, Radwa, Cathy, Laralee, Georgia, Anne, Cindy-Lynn, Lawren and Margie, and wish them all the best.  Scrappy, Lisa and Crystal will be staying on board and joining our new DT!

Thank you to everyone who applied for our DT this term.  We had quite a lot of participants and it was quite hard to narrow it down, in fact, instead of just 8 on the team, we actually have 14!  You will be seeing them in 2 Teams over the term.  For those of you that did not get on the team this term, I hope that you will contact me by clicking here so that we can arrange to have you as a month long guest designer!

So introducing our new Design Team for the March-August Term some you may recognize from around blogland and others will be new to you.  We have lots of varying talent and they can't wait to get started!

Happy scrapping everyone!
