Welcome the new Design Team plus a little something extra!

Hi everyone and Merry Christmas eve eve!

Well as you can imagine I have had a rough time making these decisions but please join me in welcoming the new DT for the next 6 months. I am so lucky to have all of them joining the site and blogs and I'm sure they will be providing TONS of ideas and inspiration.

First off...we have Ashley Smith. Ashley is returning to the team, and she is going to be the DT coordinator. So welcome back Ashley!! YAY!

Next up.... is the amazing Adrienne Nixon!!
Adrienne simply rocks and is super fun! I'm sure a lot of you know her, she's "kind of a big deal", lol!

Third....the oh so talented and stunning Jana Eubank. If you have not seen her work...it literally takes my breath away! The way she layers and coordinates....it's fantastic!

And last, but certainly not least we welcome Patti Hozack. Patti is one of my all time favorite scrappers! She is constantly featured on ScrapJazz and is a pro at using different shapes and direction in her work. She has joined in on my challenges from the beginning and was always a favorite!!

So there we have it. The new team.

I would like to take a minute to thank Jael Calvillo for providing STUNNING work throughout the last year. Jael is truly a "natural" scrapper. Everything she does is so full of life and, as with any true artist, when you see Jael's work you know it's hers before you even see her name on it. She owns it and I'm going to miss her so much. She is a great scrapper and a great friend and a true sweetheart! Please head over to the other blog "layouts and projects" and browse through the months to see what I mean. But I warn you "prepare to be amazed".....seriously...lol!

Also, I would like to thank Elizabeth Manna, who has been GDTM for the last few months. Again, she is awesome! Awesome scrapper, awesome person and awesome friend! I would also like to thank all of you who entered the call....again I'm humbled and awed by all of your amazing work!

And because of this I have made a decision....a fun decision! As you all saw, the winner of this challenge will be getting to choose a paper kit and will be guest DTM for January. Well, I thought "why not do this every month?"...so I am!! The beginning of every month I will be holding a challenge, and the winner of that challenge will get to be on the DT the following month. Then I can offer the position to more of you and we will all win by getting to see all the talent out there!! Sound good?? I hope so!!

So that's what I have to share today! Make sure you check back tomorrow to see who will be filling the first guest spot! Again, decisions...decisions. Have you seen the slide show??? Oh my goodness....guys watch it all the way through and then tell me how I'm going to pick! Ahhh...you're killin' me (in a good way)!
