A NEW Design Team!!!

Well hello everyone!! I am SOOOOOOOO happy to announce to you today that I have been invited to join Donna Salazar Designs Design Team!!! YAY!!

 Words cannot express how happy I am to have joined this amazing team and to create for Donna! I have ALWAYS loved her products, but fell deeply in love with them after being a Guest Designer on her blog back in May and had the chance to play around with more of her collections. 

When I finished all my creations back then, I said one thing to my self ... "When Donna Salazar Designs has a DT call YOU WILL apply" !! I made it clear to my scrappy BFF.. that I REALLY wanted to create for Donna Salazar Designs because when I create with products I LOVE, I create at my best (I hope so anyway), the ideas flow freely and the whole process seems effortless! It all just comes together easily. This is how I feel about Donna's collections so imagine my absolute joy when I was asked to join the team permanently! 

So from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU Donna and Natasha for inviting me to be on this team. I am so excited :) 

So here is my first project. I created a canvas using many bits from  different Donna Salazar collections. I also have a photo tutorial on how I created the background further down.
