Whew...finally a few moments to sit down and gush all about the new gals that have joined the Design Team at A PILE OF SCRAP! I have to tell you that helping Alissa choose the girls was extremely hard as there is a lot of talent out there! One thing that I really respect is the fact that she chose scrappers of all different styles and levels and I think that is a great inspiration for the every day scrappers out there. To the girls that didn't make the Team (this time!!), I am so proud of each and every one of them and honestly hope that they try again :) Without further ado...come meet the girls!

Valerie (aka Petite)
- a detail-oriented scrapper. A crisp and clean style but with a lot of care and attention to detail. Check out her blog and if you don't speak French, be sure to hit the translation button on there! (it does give a good laugh as the translation can be wayyyyyyyyyy off sometimes!)

Cheryl (aka Alleycat)
- I had the privilege of meeting Cheryl when I flew out to New Brunswick in February. It is amazing what this lady can do with a needle, thread and beads....simply amazing! She has a great sense of humor and is always willing to teach anyone who wants to learn. The pictures of her layouts don't do them justice because once you see them in person, you would be gob-smacked (isn't that a great word?!).

Candace (aka Colormehappy)
- Another Edmonton scrapper!! It is nice to have someone out here in the same time zone as me :) Candace and I have known each other through our kids playschool and I have always liked her style - Alissa calls it very "Love Elsie" style. Kinda funky and she likes paint as much as I do!! She is a newbie to the forum and fits right in with the rest of us crazy scrappers!

Vicki (aka PrincessPea) - I think a great way to describe Vicki is enthusiastic! Although we have never met, I can feel her enthusiasm for her scrapping, for new products and especially for the chance to share and learn anything and everything about scrapping. With the new challenges coming, I can't wait to see what she comes up with!

Jen (aka Scrappinmama) - I was surprised when Jen entered the DT call...not because I didn't think she could do it but because she is a pretty quiet scrapper....and her version of the DT sketch rocked my socks!!! Jen has really impressed me with how much she tries new things and I think her style appeals to a lot of scrappers. Her first challenge that she posted on the forum yesterday is simply BEAUTIFUL and I can't wait to see what else she has up her sleeve! Make sure you check out her first challenge layout called Music!

And those are the new girls - I hope you add their blogs to your fave list! Deedee is on a kinda-sorta maternity leave (she will play with us whenever she is up to it) and Jerusha and I are proud to still be part of the team...but in new ways :) We came up with new and exciting challenges and the forum girls are eating them up! 3 new challenges will be posted every Monday (I will still be doing SOTW every week and then a technique every other week!) come check them out!!
