Welcome to our New DT gals

So in case you forgot or didnt know...We had a DT call recently.  And WOW at the submissions-there are some very talented ladies out there in our scrappy land.  So after long talks and lots of looking--we found not only 1 but 2 girls to join us.  And we want you to meet them...

First up is Raechelle

Hello! I'm Raechelle (pronounced Rachel) Bellus. I am married, a mom/full-time step-mom of 6 beautiful children ages 12-22 as well as 4 cats and 2 dogs. I am a proud Navy mom of two girls and am so proud of them for serving their country. I live in Spokane Valley, WA and am a part-time cashier for a large retail chain. I also enjoy reading, playing games and working puzzles. I am thankful that my husband is supportive and encouraging of my passion for playing with paper.
I have been scrapping about 10 years now, and like to create a little bit of everything. Playing with paper is my release and I enjoy sharing this creativity with others. It still amazes me how I can take some photos, sheets of pretty paper, and a handful of elements and create something that I, along with my children can enjoy over and over. There is nothing like seeing that smile light up their faces whenever they see the newest layout I have created of them, for them. It just one more little way that I can share my love for them and it truly makes my heart happy.
I am honored to be a part of the Memorable Seasons team and I am able to inspire you to create.

And next up we have our resident scrapper Wendy
My name is Wendy and I have been married for 12 years now. My hubby and I have 5 children ranging from 9-10 months. I am a SAHM and a homeschooler, I tutor math on the side and play violin. I have been scrapbooking since my first child was born in 2002 and have grown in my love for the hobby. I love to document my families many memories and blessings and I enjoy having something that is so fulfilling to me but my family can enjoy also. It doesn't hurt that I have always adored the smell of paper and the joy of picking a new pen!

All of us at Memorable Seasons are super excited to work with these talented ladies-Congrats to you both!

Hello 2012-its time to get moving

Hello Ladies and welcome to 2012.  We are very excited for the new year.  Time for new things and to get that scrappy mojo back in gear.  So with that we have decided to host a little something new for you this year.  Just to get your mojo flowing again after the busy holiday season. 

We are holding a sketch-a-thon!  Yup, one whole month of inspiration for you and of course there will prizes too!
Here are all the details:

In January, we (the DT) will be hosting a SKETCH-A-THON!!!
Each weekday starting Monday January 2nd - Friday Jan 27th, a new sketch will be posted.
So that's every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday!!!

You'll have the weekends to catch up and also that last few days of Jan.
(last sketch Friday 1/27, month ends Tuesday 1/31).

Now I bet you are thinking 20 sketches :shock: not to worry girls. We just wanna get your mojo back in gear after the holiday season. You can do as many or as few as you like!
For every sketch you complete, you get your name in the monthly prize drawing for a GC to the store.
You can do the same sketch multiple times, however you only get your name in once for each sketch/challenge.
Layouts and cards are both ok!!
We hope you will come over and join in on the fun!
