Design Team Announcement
and a sad Farewell

Good Morning Followers
I'm thrilled to be able to announce we have 2 new talented ladies joining us in
October, but before I get onto that I need to say that after quite some time
designing for me, Linda Eggleton is stepping down from the Design Team.

Linda has been designing for me for quite a few years and not only is she a talented
crafter, she is one of the most lovely and easy going designers that I've had the 
pleasure to work with and I'm going to miss her weekly post and inspiration as well
as her continued support and friendship.

A huge thank you from the bottom of my heart Linda, you will truly be missed, not only
by me, but your wonderful fan base that you have been inspiring with your gorgeous work - 
 we wish you well and hope to still see some beautiful work from you out there in the 
Crafting world.

Now, to the our 2 new members.

I'm thrilled to welcome these 2 talented ladies, I hope you will take a minute to pop over
 to their blogs and see what gorgeous crafting styles they have in store for us.

So let me introduce
Tammy Klingner and Rachel Lowe
Here is a little bit from both these lovely ladies

My name is Tammy Klingner - my friends call me Tam,
 and I live in the beautiful Clare Valley in South Australia. 

Scrapping has been a part of my life for 11 years now - it is my 'me time' in this crazy life.
 It slows me down and reminds me to appreciate the little things as there's so much 
to be grateful for. 
 By far my biggest joy is being a mum to my 3 amazing kids (age 14, 12 and 11). 
 They provide me with so much inspiration and I can't wait to share it with you. 
 I'm thrilled to be a part of this team, thank-you Vanessa for having me!

Hi my name is Rachel Lowe and I live in beautiful Perth, WA.

I started scrapbooking in 2006 when my youngest was born.  My background in
 crafts is Folk Art painting and Quilting.

My scrapbooking style has evolved over the years and I love to try new techniques and design styles. I would describe myself as a contemporary/classical scrapper, I love clean lines, layers and negative space.

My inspiration always comes from my photo (I cannot scrap without a chosen photo!)
 as my page tells the story of the photo in some way.

When I am not scrapping I am living a wonderfully chaotic life as a mum of four children.
 I also work full time as a Mental Health Nurse Consultant with the Department of Corrective Services.

My greatest achievement is my four children, what a ride it is being a parent! In regards 
to scrapbooking having my work published over the years by Scrapbooking Creations, Scrapbooking Memories and Jot Magazine, it is always a thrill to have your work acknowledged!

I love to travel, last year I took my daughter to Turkey, Paris and London (so many fab photos to scrap!) and next year my hubby and I will take a child free holiday to Italy.
 I am a passionate about photography and also I love my footy, West Coast Eagles
 of course for this Perth girl.

 These ladies will be joining us from October, I hope you will all enjoy their work
and make them feel welcome.
