Who wants to MEET some NEW PEOPLE!! And a COUPLE of SHOUT OUTS! :):):):):):):)

Hi all.....

I was gonna wait until the 15th to do this...but then I remembered that I will be posting the winner of FAVE FLOWERS...and showing U all the NEXT challenge...and sooooooooooo I figured I'd do this today....and MAKE U all WAIT for the other stuff!! LOL :):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

I wanted to INTRODUCE our NEW DT MEMBERS!!!!! YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!! I am EXCITED they have JOINED US! :):):):):):):):):):):):)

First up....LISA HOWARD! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Hi! My name is Lisa and I am a 40-(shhhhh), divorced mom of 2 living in Western North Carolina.  This summer, my son, who is a college graduate, returned home for a brief stay and my daughter came home for summer break. Getting used to being an empty-nester last August was a true life-altering experience, but nothing is more life changing than having them return home. LOL! I have always been a keeper of scrapbooks, but I "officially" became a scrapper roughly 15 years ago. While shopping with my sister-in-law, I came across my first "real" scrapbook at a craft fair in a local mall. I looked at my SIL and stated then and there that I would forever be a scrapper. Several Creative Memories albums later and a multitude of attempts to find "my style" leads me to where I am today. A scrapper still looking for her own style. A girl loving the craft for the all that it offers...preservation of memories, a creative outlet and an open door to making new friends.  I am so excited to be part of this team and to explore my favorite things!

Next UP.....JENNEKE KNOL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

About me:
Living in a small village in the Netherlands
In love with Ruud
Mother of Niek, Marije en Karlijn
And totally addicted to scrapping for about 2,5 years!!!!!
I don’t have one style in particular. Sometimes it’s funky with bright colors. And sometimes its vintage, soft and simple.
Love to be on this design-team!!!

And I also WANTED to INTRODUCE our GUEST DESIGNER FOR AUGUST! JESSI!!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Jessica Wilson. Loves my family, scrapbooking, music, photography and movies. Plays with paper and glue way too much!  Creative, free spirit that enjoys just having a good time with family.  Am amazed by my beautiful, crazy kids, Lucas and Isabelle, every single day.  Stays at home with kids right now.  Wants to be a photographer when I grow up(okay, I'm twenty-seven now, but whatever).  Seriously, I am wanting to learn more about photography and start my own custom photography business.  That is my ultimate goal when it comes to a career.  Right now, I'm just trying to live and enjoy every moment I get with my kids and family. Thank you so much for having me as a guest this month!  It is a huge honor and I hope you enjoy my creations.  Please feel free to visit my blog anytime to learn more or hear some crazy rambling.  U can learn more about Jessi HERE! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
