It seems as if we announced our latest DT call forever ago.  I'm happy to say that we've made our decisions, invites have been sent and acceptance from those have been received.
As I mentioned in an earlier post, changes to Color Me Scrappy are on the way.  All these changes will take place on:
November 1, 2012
Our first change is to go to weekly challenges with a twist.  They will be revealed each and every Thursday and will look like this:
  • color challenge + sketch
  • color challenge + "word"
  • color challenge + technique
  • color challenge + white, black or kraft BG
  • color challenge (for those months with 5 Thursdays)
Each challenge will be open for 2 weeks, which gives you plenty of time to get your LO in.
Our prizes will still be awarded monthly, but the more LOs you complete, the more times your name gets dropped in the hat, which obviously improves your chances to win!!  We are still prohibitive to having only US and Canadian winners due to the cost of shipping, but there is something coming for our international players as well...
We will have a "Top 3" each and every month.  This is voted on by our DT and the winners of this have the opportunity to come back as Guest Designers the following month.
Without further ado...  let's get to know our new DT members!
 I live on Long Island in NY, about an hour east of Manhattan. I have been scrapbooking since 1998 and I have been obsessed ever since. I love anything to do with paper and glue and all the little fun embellishments that go on a page. I also dabble in cardmaking, mixed media and art journaling and am always looking for ways to stretch my creative muscles.
I'm a musician, originally from Barcelona, Spain, and live with my boyfriend in Berlin, Germany. I've been bilingual almost all my life. I've started scrapping last year and I must admit it's become an addiction. Also, it's important for me to be creative in a visual way. I've found myself to be mostly scrapping by challenge. This is how I get most creative and how things happen and I really enjoy the creative process this way. I normally scrap layouts in 8,5x11 and the occasional minibook.
Hi fellow scrapbookers! My name is Sharon. I am a cardiology nurse by day and an enthusiastic scrapbooker by night! I started scrapbooking 9 years ago when my husband and I adopted our second daughter from China. I got interested in scrapbooking when I learned about "Lifebooks" and adoption, and haven't stopped since. I have enjoyed being on the Scrapping the Music design team for the past couple of years and have gotten a lot of inspiration from them! My oldest, "bio" daughter is 18, soon to be going to college. Time flies . . . My husband and I celebrated our 22nd anniversary this year.
Now that we all know each other, let's introduce the new Color Me Scrappy teams!
