The Big Announcement!

I'd like to thank everybody that submitted their work for our Spring DT Call. We had so many wonderful submissions, and it was super hard to narrow it down to just two!

Now for the good part - please help me welcome Cheryl Casas and Renea Harrison to the Scraps of Darkness Design Team!  

Cheryl Casas
Hello Darksiders!  For those of you who don't know me, my name is Cheryl (C Mom Go).  I am 31 years old, married to my superman (Peter), with 3 kiddos (Jasmine 11, Gisselle 9 and Andrew 6) and I work as a massage therapist.  I have been scrapping for over a year now and it is my passion!  I am so thankful for finding this love of mine.  It really gives me the sense of calm that I often need.  Plus, I have been blessed with meeting so many wonderful people that I am forever grateful.  I love alternative pages, especially dark ones.  I like to try new techniques and I try to be as unique as possible on every layout.  I have been stalking Scraps of Darkness for quite a long time now and I am ecstatic to be part of the Design Team!!!  

Renea Harrison
A BIG "hello" to all of my Scraps Of Darkness friends.  My name is Renea a.k.a. Reneabouquets in the virtual world. I am just beyond excited to be a member of the Scraps Of Darkness Design Team, and I can't thank Melinda enough for giving me this wonderful opportunity!!  I don't just love scrapbooking, I am passionate about it.  I love every aspect of this amazing multi-media art.
The art of the creation itself, from taking the design in my head and getting it out onto the paper, to the social aspect of it. I love sharing what I know, and learning what others share. I love talking about it, as well as encouraging others to take that leap and dive right in. I have quickly become a forum junky and I love the sisterhood aspect of all who share in this experience. My biggest hope is that my addiction is contagious and that each and every one of you catch it!

I would also like to shout out a thanks to both my husband and son. They not only put up with my scrapbook insanity, but incourage me to pursue my passion. I have been married to my husband for over 21 years, and he has always been, not only the love of my life, but my biggest supporter in all aspects of my life. We have built a wonderful life together, and have raised an amazing son. God has definitely blessed me beyond anything I could have imagined!
So, grab some paper, your favorite medium and some embellies, and join me on this exciting journey. I can't wait to see what you create with these gorgeous kits and hope that you find not only beauty, but a little inspiration in what I create!

I'd also to say thank you to Manda for all the fabulous layouts you've done for SOD. Manda has decided not to remain on the Design Team so that she  can spend more time with her family and enjoy scrapping without deadlines. We'll miss having you on the team!

And Yay!  I am so excited to announce that Celina Matthews has agreed to stay with SOD, she is our new Mistress of Mayhem!!!

Cheryl's doing a nice little give-away on her blog to celebrate joining the Design Team, so be sure to stop by her blog and enter!  Cheryl's Blog
