Challenge #156

Hello again everyone and Happy Monday to you all.  There's lots of bits and pieces on the blog today so grab a cuppa, sit down and have a read!

Ooh La La Creations have a new CD, Say It With Words, being launched on 9 June at 3pm (GMT) on Create & Craft.  Wendi and Emma have given me a CD, hot off the press, for one lucky person to win.  All crafters who enter this challenge will have their name put into Mr Random Organiser and he will pick someone to win the CD.  Good luck to all!

DT News

Wow, what a difficult job we had choosing our new DT member and many thanks to all who applied.  If you were unsuccessful this time, do not despair, you can apply again when we have our next DT call.

Our new teamie is Avril Ann of Crafting in the Bedroom fame!  Here is a little bit about her.

About Me
Avril Ann Watson

I started crafting as a young girl, first with crocheting and knitting, then embroidery and tapestry.  I got into Paper crafting in 2005 after nursing my Dad through cancer and losing him in February of that year.   I started off with a little plastic box, mainly doing decoupage, then got into stamping and latterly CD crafting and Digis.   

I am disabled and have been unable to work for several  years, where upon I found Blogland and Facebook; I have amassed an amazing amount of friends and like-minded people.  This has been my saviour in so many ways.  As my family go about their days I too have something to do, and hope contribute.  I sit in my bedroom with a Sparkly Black Miniature Poodle, Jet, keeping me company all the while.

I am currently on several DTs and enjoy the rapport between team members and challengers alike.

I have been very lucky to have met quite a few of my Facebook and Blog buddies, and hope to increase that as time goes on.

Thanks for choosing me in your top three too, I'm very proud! Sorry I've not joined in this time - my Mum is poorly and worrying about her seems to have pushed all the creativity out of my mind! I've not crafted for over a week!
