So here it is - the big announcement you have all been waiting for!!!!

I have created and assembled my very own personal CREATIVE DESIGN TEAM!!!! Whooo Hooooo!!!! I can't tell you how excited I am by this addition to my staff!!! I personally have been on several design teams in the past and I was always sooo shocked that someone liked my work enough to have me showcase their items.... and now here I am with my own "creative design team"! WOW!!!!

So today I would like to introduce you to my first "Beloved Keepsakes Creative Design Team" member.....

You probably remember her from the challenge as she was the 2nd place winner -

Lynn Barwald

Since childhood Lynn loved working on arts & crafts projects and in 1992 one of Lynn’s many hobbies became a full time business when she and her husband began exhibiting and selling their handmade glass and crystal jewelry at the Florida art shows. They sold Lucky Charm Jewelry after 14 years, with a mailing list of approximately 6,000. Prior to that, Lynn had been employed at IBM for 19 years and shortly after became certified in colored gemstones with the Gemology Institute of America (G.I.A.). In addition, being a Dale Carnegie graduate, she grew her interest in motivational speaking and became a weight management lecturer.

Always ready with a camera, Lynn found scrapbooking to be a fun and creative hobby. After seeing people’s excitement in her pages and projects, Lynn delighted in the joy and satisfaction of developing and teaching some of the skills and techniques she discovered along the way. Mixing and matching all the artistic experiences from jewelry to scrapbooking gave rise to a new love… stamping and card making. Now, you will find Lynn at home and in the local scrapbook and stamping shops sharing her high energy and enthusiasm in classes and workshops.

I am sooo very excited to have Lynn on my team!!! Here is a few examples of her work!

Lynn's "Pirate Essentials" Card was published in the September 2007 issue of the Rubber Stamper magazine.

Lynn also hosts some of the most amazing classes - so if you are in the Wellington, FL area - make sure you check out her class schedule and pop in for an awesome class or two!!

You can learn more about Lynn or check out her class schedule on her website.

Please help me welcome Lynn to the "Beloved Keepsakes Creative Design Team" by leaving her a message in the comment section!!!!

I am just so00o thrilled to have you on the team Lynn!!!

Keep watching for Lynn's projects featuring Beloved Keepsakes items - coming soon!

Until Next Time!


Make sure you tune in later this week for the introduction of the next addition to the "Beloved Keepsakes Creative Design Team"!

How exciting, I absolutely love Lynn's 'train' page which was entered in the challenge. The journaling was very interesting. I can't wait to see even more of Lynn's creations. Hello Lynn!
