First of all, I would like to thank you for all the warm wishes you have sent me and my family. I am so blessed to be part of this community and I can't tell you just how much I appreciate your kindness and thoughtfulness. I'm taking a short break to post the layouts I made for the January Kit of Badgirls. I made these before I gave birth but of course we had to wait for the reveal day before posting in our blogs.

This is the last kit for me as a Badgirls Designer. One of the most difficult decisions I have made was to stay on or leave the team. Badgirls has been my online home for about two years now and it would be difficult to go. But I had to go because I need more time now for work and for my family. I will miss designing with the kits but I'll still be part of the community there. Only difference is - I'll now be among those eagerly waiting for reveal day:)






This one is special to me. The challenge for this month was to create a project about the one resolution we kept. Mine was to make an extra effort to stay in touch with friends both in real life and with the ones I met over the internet. This ATC card represents the first trade I ever made with my friend Celine Cochrane. She is a wonderful person and a talented artist and I am thankful to have met her through this hobby.
