We say hello...and farewell...

Hello Mo fans...we hope you've all had the best week creating and playing...and just enjoying life! We had a total of 48 amaaaaaazing entries in last week's challenge...Thanks so much for joining in the fun at Mo's! You know what we say...Mo's fans ROCK!! Now before we get down to business, we have a couple of announcements....

First, we bid a fond farewell to one of our talented DP2 designers, Lisa Cook. Lisa has been with Mo's Design Team from the very beginning...and has shared some beautiful creations with us all. We send hugs and a great big THANKS to Lisa for all her hard work over the years. Best of luck in your exciting new endeavors, Lisa. We'll miss you...but we will surely see you around!!

And, as we bid farewell, we also extend a warm welcome to a new addition to Mo's DP2 "family". We asked...and Debbie said "yes"!!! Whoohooooo!! We're pleased to welcome Debbie Lanci as our newest Design Team sister!! Here's a little bio on her own words.... (note: Debbie's the one between the two handsome guys!!)

I was so thrilled when I was asked to become a permanent member of Mo’s Digital Team. To join such an awesome team is amazing I am still pinching myself.

Like most of us, I started off scrapping, but got into card making about  5 years ago and I’ve been hooked ever since.   I just found the world of digital images, and Mo’s has the cutest images I’ve ever seen.  I feel like she lives next door since many of her images fit my life to a tee.   I am a true New York City Gal, and love Broadway and go as often as I can.  In May, I celebrated my 23rd wedding anniversary, have two boys, and work as a school secretary, and yes, when you read this I’ll be home for the summer. 

Paper crafting for me is one of the greatest forms of relaxation, which for me is the next best thing to Yoga, which is one of the most relaxing things in the world. I’ve been practicing yoga for about 2 years, and go about 3 times per week.  I try my best never to miss a class.  If I could go every day, I would.
Well, that’s me in a nutshell… Hope I can inspire you to craft and create; I look forward to meeting many of you through Mo’s blog, until then… Have fun and create to your heart’s desire.

Next up...a little business...
Our winner for last week's "Vintage...with distressing and lace" challenge is....
