Exciting News!

Thursday, December 13, 2012

I am so thrilled to be back on the Doodlebug Design team for another term and also very excited to be working with a few new faces along with some of the loveliest and funniest girls, who just happen to be extremely talented too... he he! So a big thankyou to Doodlebug, Cynthia and Lori for this wonderful opportunity.

And without further ado, here is the new Doodlebug Design Team for 2012 to 2013:

Amanda Coleman (Idaho)
Amy Chappell (Utah) - Card Specialist

Monique Leidtke (Netherlands)
Sherry Cartwright (Texas)
Shellye McDaniel (Texas)

I have a layout to share that was created using Doodlebug products for the Scrapbooking & Beyond magazine's 'Embellish your Style' feature in the Spring Edition earlier this year.

It has great sentimental value as it was my very first ever 'cover' layout and my daughter has several copies in safe keeping!
