A little goodbye…

Posted in Misc at 1:02 pm by alimom4

With great appreciation for a job well done, we  must say “goodbye and good luck” to our December 2008- May 2009 Design Team member Evelien Verschelde. Evelien has had to resign her DT position at CY.

Evelien, please know we have loved your work and invite you to reapply for the CY-DT at a later date when “life” allows.

 In closing, I’d like to share with everyone one of my favourite layouts from Evelien, done for Creatively Yours. Enjoy!

Thank You Evelien!  Wishing you ONLY the best!

Here’s a LO from me. These were the key members of my son Noah’s Team in 2005-2007. These are very special people. Noah needs to have a photo of them, all together, of course!!! 

I also flipped the sketch 1/4 turn to the left and only used one full circle in this interpretation.
