Sad Goodbye

Well as we are getting closer to the February, unfortunately it is also the end of the current Creative Team's term.

Only 2 girls have stayed and we are saying goodbye to Jody, Kelley, Mindy, Sandy and Tam. I thought I would do a little reflection of my favourite layout each girl has created over the past six months.






I wish these girls all the very best in whatever their scrappy and personal futures hold.
