A contest and our December Guest Designer!!!

We are having another contest, which is open to our kit subscribers and anybody who has purchased either our November or December kit (which will be available on December 15th).  Get the details here .

And I'm so excited about our December Guest Designer, that I couldn't wait until kit reveal on the 15th!
Charlotte Jenkins, aka Suepup, will be working with our December kit to give you inspiration and eye candy!  I'm so thrilled that she accepted the Guest DT position, because I am a big fan of her work.  So if you haven't already, meet Charlotte:

I am Charlotte, AKA Suepup in the virtal world. I live in central Ohio, born and raised in the heart of an Appalachian coal mining town. I live with my husband, a Doberman Pincher, a Rottweiler and a Pharoah hound/Doberman mix. I am addicted to art and crafting!. My current loves are scrapbooking, mixed media, photography and printmaking.
I guess my creative journey began as a young child, when I began oil painting, drawing with pastels and beading. As a child, and still do, love anything that is rusted, weathered and distressed. I find beauty in things most people find ugly or consider junk. I am fairly new to scrapbooking and had been very reluctant to try the "art". For many years, I thought scrapbooking was only a craft, and not art. I now laugh at that thought, I was so wrong. A couple years ago, one of my friends dared me to just scrap one page. Well I did, and now I addicted. I find scrapbooking is a way to create smaller pieces of mixed media artwork! I love Distressed, Steampunk, Shabby Chic and Grunge style scrapbooking. I consider myself an artist rather than a crafter. I often find that my scrapbooking style does not fit the traditional scrapper. I have a passion for Modern and Renaissance Art. My favorite artist is Kathe Kollwitz, a German Expressionist whose work expresses empathy for the less fortunate, embraces the victims of poverty, hunger, death and war during the first half of the 20th century. I am also addicted to the Tudor and Edwardian era, I really any time period of great social change.
I am THRILLED and feel SO BLESSED to be invited as a guest designer for the Scraps of Darkness. I have been so inspired by all of the wonderful talent surrounding Scraps of Darkness.

If you haven't seen her work before, you can see her awesome creations on her blog:  A Pretty Pile of Paper Chaos .


And lastly, I just want to remind you all that we are looking for another Designer to add to our Design Team!  Get the details here.
