All good things must come to an end....

Hi everyone, hope you have all enjoyed your long weekend...I know I have & can't believe how much you can get done in having that extra day!

Today I'm going to share my last e.v.e.r  creations as a DT member for The Scrapbook Store.
I made the decision about a month ago, after many weeks of pondering ..and it wasn't an easy decision to come to, by any means.....but I have decided to step down from my DT position, effective from the end of September. 

It has been a full 12 months that I've been on the DT, and I have loved every single bit of being on such a fantastic team...with such a generous owner, Suzanne...who provides her DT members with the most generous & amazing kits each month.  Even though I have enjoyed my journey with TSS (formerly known as Handmade by Suzanne)....I just felt that it was time to step back from my DT commitments & get back to other things in life that I feel I have been neglecting.  Plus, hubby & I are hoping to start travelling as often as we that was another factor in making my decision.

I'd like to publicly thank Suzanne for the amazing opportunity that she gave me & for having the faith in my work...I have enjoyed my journey with HBS/TSS & it has been a wonderful experience that I will always cherish.  Thank you, Suzanne. xx

I'd also like to thank the rest of the amazing DT for being so supportive & encouraging over the past 12 months...I have appreciated every encouraging comment that each of you made in regards to my work... it's been so much fun working with you all....and I'm truly grateful for the wonderful friendships that we have made.  And also a huge thank you to Marelize....who not only co-ordinated each months happenings, but also kept us all in (just kidding!).

No, seriously...a huge THANK YOU to you all.  xoxo
I know that I am going to miss working with you all <3

And while we're in speech mode... LOL
I'd like to congratulate the 4 newest members of The Scrapbook Store DT who start their term today.  Kim, Leanne, Sandie & Lindy....I hope that you all have as much fun, & enjoy the ride, as much as I did.  Enjoy your journey ladies!

Ok, so on with the show...

2 cards created using Teresa Collins - Tell your Story

Both cards are made up of leftover pieces from the Diecut Border strips pack...with a few added flowers, & placed onto a bit of teal cardstock....easy peasy (says the person who always struggled with  They were literally made in just a few minutes & are such a great way to use up scraps & leftovers.
I just love the colours in this range <3
And this one I included one of the tickets cut out from the Tickets pp...again with the diecut border strips & a few flowers added.
So there you have it...2 simple cards - my last creations as DT member for TSS.
I don't plan on being a stranger around TSS gallery & their monthly sketch challenges....I plan to pop into the gallery to see what everyone has been up to & to see the gorgeous creations from the DT to participate in the monthly sketches as often as I can.
Ok, I think I have babbled on enough for one
Until next time....& thanks so much for dropping by  :) xx
PS.  I will be back in the next day or so to draw/announce winners of my giveaway!

Oh Linda, you've gone and made me all teary now. Thank you for all your hard work and wonderful contributions to our Design Team. I will really miss you heaps. All the best for the future and I hope you and hubby get to do all the wonderful things you are hoping for. xx

Suzanne McGregor said...

Miss you Linda, I am teary too. You know there will always be a place for you with us if you get tired of having fun and need to scrap all those holiday snaps. Hugs to you and don't be a stranger. Sxxx

Linda, it was difficult decision but now you have more time for family and travelling!
I really love every creation of you and these cards as well!

Kim Price said...

So sad to see you leaving TSS but I just know you're going to have the time of your life travelling. Take care of you and pop in to let us all know how you're doing xx

I find that a year is enough on any team, no matter how lovely. Life is short & it's fun to keep moving along achieving different things. Travelling is great if you have the opportunity & I know what you mean about getting behind on other things - I'm in that predicament myself! Every spare minute I'm scrapping or blogging while the house falls down around me LOL (well not quite!) BEAUTIFUL cards - I am STILL resisting those phenomenal TC papers!!

Bente Fagerberg said...

Sorry to har you will not b on their team any longer. I have loved seeing your projects every month! But surely you will keep on sharing your art with us on your blog. I hope you get to travel a lot with your dear hubby. Travelling gives us so many beautiful memories and experiences.
