All arrangements are made, my sale is all uploaded and ready and HERE is my big announcement…
With A LOT of deep thought, taking almost two month to really make sure and contacted everyone who I needed to, I have decided to retire from designing and selling my kits in digital store. As with everyone, life is always changing and I feel it is time to focus on what my time is best spent on and removing any of the stress from my life I can. I just feel that there is a lot that goes into design quality product , much more than most really realize. And I just don’t have the drive, the focus and the will that it takes to be a GOOD designer. Maybe I am just burnt out or my daily life has changed so that I don’t have the extra time it takes to be a quality designer. There is a lot that goes into a quality product and with the  standards changing all the time, I have just decided to RETIRE and return to the real passion I have with digital scrapbooking, which is Layout Artist.
I want you to know that  I am not leaving SCRAPLAND by no means. I plan to return digital scrapping to being my hobby and passion to being a layout artist.  I have already REJOINED one of my Creative Teams with STACEY’S SCRAPS and so excited and honored to be joining Vicki Parker aka A WORK IN PROGRESS. Along with staying with Denise, Loucee and Charlie Teams, which is kind of one TEAM and I so enjoy working with them. I have been with them for some time now. Of course it is a given, helping out my BFF, Bon Scrapatits Designs aka Linda.
SO MY BIG Sale is going to be this,
for just $5.00!
YES, I will still be making mini kits and special goodies for all of my special followers who have visited my blog for over the past two or three years. But once I take these kits out of the store…they will be gone for good!
If you have any trouble with getting the coupon to work or any other questions about the kits that in my store, please email the questions to me and please don’t leave them here with the comments, other than that….comments are always loved and appreciated. My email address is:

I want to personally Thank YOU ALL for all your love and support over the years for encouragement with designing and selling in online stores. I have worked with some pretty amazing store owners and so appreciate their support and help as well. And please remember that this GIRL JUST WANTS this to be FUN!

It is with mixed emotions that I read this. I will miss seeing your beautiful designs, but I certainly understand how you feel.
It is almost life coming full circle as we met when we were on the CT at 3S. Has it been that long? LOL

You know that I love you so much and wish for you only the best things in life and all that makes you happy.

Best wishes in your future with your life and with you CT positions.

Love you, my sweet friend and sending big always.
