Welcome to August Guest Designer-Carrie Gaskin

August is here in all its glory!  Where did July go?  Our fabulous July Guest Designer, Tui Nathan, was a lovely teammate and we are all sad to see her go!  She did a terrific job with the July challenges!!!  Thanks Tui, we hope you will continue to play along with us and we are looking forward to seeing your beautiful creations in the future.

With a new month, comes a new Guest Designer.  We are thrilled to welcome the Artistic Avenger herself, Carrie Gaskin!  Carrie hails from my part of the world, beautiful British Columbia in Canada. I am so happy to be stamping with a fellow Canadian and BC girl to boot!!  We live only 3 hours away but I am on an island and need to take a ferry to meet her.  Maybe one day we will meet!  So close and yet so far!!

I asked Carrie to share a bit about herself and this is what she said:

Hello there all, my name is Carrie Gaskin. I am lucky enough to live in on the amazingly beautiful coast of British Columbia, Canada and living here you can't help but be creatively inspired. I have been a SU Demonstrator now for almost six years and have loved every minute of both the creative and business aspects. I love making cards most of all as I am an "instant gratification" type of gal. Scrapbooking still intimidates me some but I'm trying, really! 3D projects are also something I love to do and share. I'm always making something for someone! Sharing in my love of papercrafting are my two kids (daughter aged 10 and son aged 8) - that is probably one of things that makes me feel the luckiest, I get to share my love of stamping with them and they feel such a part of what I do. Also thrown into my mix is my dear husband, Craig. Although certainly not a crafter (sorry hon) he is an extremely supportive partner who continues to help me look at things in different ways to expand my personal creativity.

Carrie joins us next week with our first challenge of the month, a theme challenge from Ann!  In the meantime, be sure to visit the blogs of both Tui Nathan and Carrie Gaskin and join us this week for the wonderful sketch from DT member Nance.  To find her sketch and the current challenge, please click HERE.

Thanks for stopping by!
