Featured Layout! - Sketch #277

Hey there, everyone!  It's Marcia here today to bring you this week's Featured Layout.  I really love this layout by Kathy Major. This is such a fabulous layout. I love all the die-cuts, the bright colors on the dark background, the notched notebook paper, heck I love it all :)

Congratulations Kathy! You can check out more of Kathy's awesome work in her Flickr gallery.  Kathy, here's a little something for you to display on your blog (if you ever decide to create one) for being a featured artist today!

You still have plenty of time to link up your take of Sketch #277 for a chance to win the awesome prize up for grabs from our sponsor this month; "My Creative Scrapbook".  We can't wait to see what you do!

Have a fabulous day!

Announcing | Design Team

Selecting a design team is always something that isn't easy - for anyone on the other side of the fence, choosing designers to represent their site, brand, company is always something I stress about. I always want to give people a chance and select people that are a Fit for what Creative Scrappers is. With that said - THANK YOU everyone for sending in your applications and for putting yourself out there. Your interest and support for Creative Scrappers doesn't go un-noticed!

I have made my selection and I hope you'll feel inspired by the girls I have on the team for the next few months. I know they will work hard to inspire you and give you ideas for your next layout or projects.

The new designers will be showcasing their talent with our Sketch # 279 on October 5th. I will give them an official introduction on October 1st.

Please join me in welcoming back a few of our existing team members and some new gals to the CS team.

Also, I have decided to change the logo ( once again ) but keep the font for Creative Scrappers the same. It was time for a change and I think it's "fresh" as some gals have described it and one even said it reminder her of the FUNDIP we use to eat as kids! Grab a new Badge and let's get creative!

We all look forward to the next few months and Creating With Sketches!
