Retiring - Farewell and Thank You!

It is with a heavy heart that I announce my retirement from digiscrap designing. I have LOVED sharing my artistic creations and seeing the gorgeous layouts you have created with my kits. I'll still participate in blog trains and charity collabs, so please check back occasionally for some fun freebies. In fact, I have a little freebie farewell gift for you today. It's called Spunky Punk. My daughter was my inspiration for this one. She just turned 12 and is the sweetest little punk I know. My store at 3 Scrapateers is open through the end of the month, but as you know, Inspiration Lane closed last month. I love designing scrap kits, but my heart just kept getting broken when I made a home somewhere and then it was closed. I just don't have the heart to apply to another store. So, for now I will be a full-time mom and wife. I'm sure my family will be glad for that! I will miss you all so keep in touch! Farewell, dear friends!

One last Hurrah!

Well, with Inspiration Lane closing this month I was ready to throw in the towel on designing. It's so hard to make a home somewhere on the web and then have it close. It's heartbreaking! Anyway, I decided that before I officially retired, I would give designing one last chance in the ScrapMatters Design Star contest. So, yesterday was the beginning of round 1. You can see all the contestant entries in the gallery at ScrapMatters. By clicking on an image, you can see links to download each mini kit. It's a great way to get a free mega kit, if you're looking for a fun freebie!

The first round is confidential, so I can't say which designer I am (it's between 32 and 34). LOL I would love it if you'd go check it out, leave a comment, and download the freebie. The current SM design team is doing the voting, so no pressure there. I just want to make sure somebody looks at my entry! LOL

I doubt I'll get very far in the contest as the competition is fierce, but I'm going to have fun doing it and then I'll probably retire from designing - at least for profit. I will still contribute to charity kits and blog trains just for fun. Thank you to all my loyal customers. It's been a pleasure getting to know you! Thank you for being a part of my life. :)
