Please welcome our new dt girls

sadly we had 2 dt members step down, i am sad to see them go:( but i understand life gets busy and people must move on.
this was a hard decision, we have so many talented ladies on our ning group

first i want to introduce melissa, she has been a member since we were on cafemom and she is a great person and a great scrapper!

I am married to my hubby Dean, for almost 10 years. We have beautiful, sassy, blue eyed, blond haired, 2 year old ray of sunshine whom we call Mistie Rose. And as you can read I am very proud of her! I work at a local community bank. And I love crafts of all kind but fell head over heels in love with scrapbooking back when I wanted to make our wedding album. I have a large family and love hanging out with them. I also love Nascar--go Jimmie Johnson #48! And love my church, camping, boating, and hosting our annual Luau party every May.

and next we have angie, she is joining our card team! her stuff is stunning and i cant wait to get to work with both these ladies!
Hi! My name is Angie Worthington, I live near Greenville, North Carolina, and just a
short drive away from my favorite place, the beach. I have been married to my
high school sweetheart for almost 20 years!!! We are blessed to have a wonderful
daughter who is almost 13! We also have the cutest little Cockapoo, Jersey.
I was introduced to scrapbooking back in 1997 at a friends’ “scrapbooking party.”
There have been a few “dry spells” over the years, but for the past 5 years I have made time to “create” several days a week.
About 5 years ago, I was introduced to card-making and it quickly become something I “have” to do at least once a week!
I love that cards are quick and simple, and the fact that a handmade card always puts a big smile on someones face.
welcome aboard ladies

i asked a friend to join us and her name is vicki! i am also on her design team and she has been a great person to work with and get to know! she also runs a online scrapping store
.I am a single mum from Australia. I have been scrapbooking for 7 years now. I love everything about this fantastic craft, but mostly I love that it is our witness. My grandmother was diagnosed with alzheimers and dementia. And after spending time with her and other sufferers, I have gained a real appreciation for scrapbooking. It's not just a craft, for some its a real connection to our memories.
These days scrapbooking keeps me quite busy, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I am very lucky to be on a few design teams and to have had my work published.
My favourite scrapbooking products are chipboard, glitter and rhinestones. I love sparkly things, so bling it
I am so excited to be joining the Lets Scrap team and I am really looking forward to getting to know you all.

thanks for reading, hope your having a great scrappy week
