Happy Tuesday to everyone! Hope your week has started off well. You may have noticed some changes to our blog design.  It was time to freshen things up a bit, and our new design fits nicely with our design team badge  designed by Crystal.  Here it is:

Very cool and nautical!
And here is what she has to tell us about herself:
Donna Scholz (pronounced ‘schōltz’) retired 18 months ago and moved back to Boise, ID after working as a cyber security program manager. She has been making cards to celebrate life’s milestones for more than 20 years. She also scrapbooks to relive the wonderful moments on cruises she and her husband have taken around the world. She has a 4 year old granddaughter in the Bay Area, and a 16 month old granddaughter who lives just two miles away..

Thanks, Donna for joining us this week. Be sure to stop by Facebook and leave her some great comments, everyone.

Have a great week and happy creating!!!!!!
