The photos really makes me want to make a batch!! Excellent job.

I am emailing you to see if you are still interested in being a CT for a designer.... I saw your post over at DigiShopTalk.

I am a new designer. I am selling at DigiSisters Online store that just opened (store is 50% off right now). My website is I am new to designer but not to scrapbooking.

I am looking for a CT that will create 1 - 2 LO's per kit or package, plus posting them into 2 galleries plus one open gallery of choice. And would like to talk about turning them into QP's if possible.

I also homeschool my daughter, age 15.

Email me if you are interested: admin@

Thanks for you time!!
