My New Creative Team!!

I know it's a day early, but I'm just SO excited to announce my NEW CREATIVE TEAM! With over 60 applicants, I was completely and unexpectedly overwhelmed with the response to my call. I want to thank everyone who applied once again for putting themselves out there like that - it's not always the easiest thing to do.. You should have all received a response to your application by now.. If you haven't please email me {contact info to your left} because I have something for you...

Now, without any further ado...

I'd also like to extend a warm welcome to my Guest CT members:

Melissa aka mrsduke2u

As you can see, I brought Jewelle back and "promoted" her to Team Leader - such a time saver, and she's so on the ball! And Kate will be acting as Administrative Assistant for me.. I don't know how I've done it without these two for so long!

Now, by way of showing off, here are some pages these ladies have whipped up with some of my kits.. As well as a little bio from each of them..

Crystal {kistal1027}
I'm a SAHM to my 2 1/2 year old son who is the subject of most of my layouts. I'm 16 weeks pregnant with baby #2. I'm trying to set up a small photography business to bring in some extra cash, but honestly, I find it hard to charge money for something I love doing so much....well, until I start the post processing part that is!!

Jen {irish_eyes22}

Me is Jen :D I'm a huge dork, and I love to laugh and chat! I'm shy at first, but after I get past that and find my comfort zone, I love chatting and being friendly and all that :D Let's see - I've been doing all this scrapping stuff for a couple years now - but I just got into scrapbooking ALLL the time in March of this year. I'm a SAHMama of two boys - Connor (4yrs) and Liam (18mo). And my newest scrapbooking outlet (finally a girl, lol) is my niece Payton (3mo). I love photography and my obsession is digital editing and photo restoration. I love the challenge of fixing and/or improving a photo. I've been married to my hubby Tom (who's a former Marine) for over 8yrs now... I think that's it :D

Keyr {keyr}
I started scrapping, I mean digi-scrapping 2 years ago (I’ve never tried paper all!) And now after 2 years and 100GBs of scrap stuff later, it’s safe to say, that I’m totally addicted!! I'm a SAHM to an 18month old boy and a wife to a darling husband of 3 years. Apart from scrapping, I sometimes design my own scrap stuff, and give them away as freebies. But nothing beats scrapping!! Earlier, I used to love crafts, colors and pictures, but now, I also love the magic they create when combined! I love grungy, bright designs and I also love layering and blending techniques. I'm really so excited to be a part of this wonderful CT and looking forward to playing with some amazing designs!

Kim {kim21673}

My name is Kim. I am married to a wonderful man, SAHM to 3 beautiful boys and owner of two adorable cats! I live in the Chicagoland area and am addicted to digi scrapping and photography.

Lisa {aprilisa}

My name is Lisa and I'm 31 years old. Currently, I'm in Jakarta, Indonesia, but soon will be re-locating to India (maybe by the end of this year). I am a stay-at-home-mother with 2 daughters (4. 5 years old and 2 months old). I am a newbie in the digital scrapbooking world and love everything about it. I started by making some pages in November 2008 and then learned to create my own designs early this year. I don't have particular style and would love to try many different styles. But one thing I know for sure, I'm a big fan of papers :)

Lizzy {lizzy}

My name is Lizzy, I'm a 29 year old SAHM from Ireland. I have a 2.5 yr old girl and 1yr old boy, who feature on all of my pages! I started digi scrapping shortly after Christmas last year and have been hooked ever since. Aside from scrapping, I love to spend time with my family, and love to bake!

Lori {loribear}

Hello, my name is Lori and I am a scrapaholic....ROFL Just kidding! Seriously, I am LoriBear, a superhero to my family, I just don’t have the cape to prove it! I am in my 10th year of marriage to a wonderful man and father, I have 3 demon spawn ..sorry children. I have two that are 13 a boy and girl, and a 6 yr old boy who believes he is a King. I am a certified scrapmaniac and love to digiscrap! I was into paper for almost 10 years before I stumbled upon digital in 2006 while looking for some new techniques and such to try, I also had a friend (Carinpixels) who was into it at the time and when I saw what she was doing I was HOOKED! Sadly, I haven’t touched a darn thing in my paper cabinet since then ( I think hubby likes it that way cause we can now see our dining room table everyday!) I love to try new things and to take on new challenges, I have a very somewhat simple life but I thoroughly enjoy it!

Niki {Alahnasmommy}

I am a SAHM to my 2.5 year old daughter, Alahna. I am turning the big 3-0 next month *gasp!* and live in Las Vegas, NV. I have only been using Photoshop CS2 for about 10 to 11 months, and started out by making siggy’s and have just been doing scrap LO's since April. I feel like I have grown so much as a scrapper since April and enjoy learning from the fabulous scrapping community! I am ecstatic to be a part of Amber's team!

Stacy {shutch}
My name is Stacy and I am currently living in Sydney, Australia. We have lived here for two years and will be coming back to the States sometime next year. Upon arriving in Australia I realized that paper scrapping wasn't in the cards for me. the products were hard to find and expensive. I decided to look into digital scrapbooking and haven't turned back since!

Yolanda {y_baros}

I'm Yolanda, a 26 y/o SAHM of 3 awesome little boys, ages 5, almost 4 and 3 months. I've been married to my wonderful husband for 7 years and have been digi-scrapping for a little over a year and a half. I am so excited to be on Amber's CT - I just love her kits!

Aren't they just fantastic?!?! So.. after all that gorgeouseness, is your PayPal finger itchy? Or are you just tired of reading and want some sort of reward? ;) How about the chance to win $5 to my stores?

Check out these threads at SUN and ScrapMatters to learn how...

Thanks again, everyone.. I'll see you next week with some fun new goodies.. :D
