Hi all!!! Well, it is time for me to tell you all what I have been soooo very excited about this past week.......so I will!!! A good friend of mine, Melissa aka Simply Pink have been chatting quite some time about catching up on scrapbooking and fitting it in with our stamping. We are both avid scrapbookers who became stampers and became passionate about both!! So, we put our noodles together and came up with THIS!!!! Scrap and Stamp Saturday Challenge site!!! It is our very own site designed to inspire creativity by bringing scrapbooking and stamping together to create beautiful memories! We have worked on our site for quite some time, lined up TONS of wonderful sponsors who are as excited as we are about this idea, and now we are on the hunt for the talent that will make this site FABULOUS!!! So, please read below!!!
We are searching for EIGHT enthusiastic, talented scrapbookers and stampers who desire to share their creativity with others! International applicants are welcome to apply. Now for the details:
