A Big Welcome & a Fond Farewell!!

Life brings so many changes to us everyday, growing families, new responsibilities or even needing time to take care of ourselves. And we know with that in mind that changes in our Design Team are inevitable. That is why we are sad to say not goodbye but a fond farewell to some of our dear friends and fellow design team members that have moved on. Join me in sending best wishes out to Robbie Herring, Amanda Muirhead and Jackie Anderson. We are so going to miss you girls, we've shared a lot of laughter and touching moments with you and have delighted in all your beautiful creations with the MCS kits!

We'd also like to take a moment to welcome our newest Design Team members Romy Veul and Angel Rodrique. Many of you already know these wonderful ladies from the MCS galleries and boards. We are so delighted to have these talented designers join our MCS family! For those of you who are still getting to know them here are their photos and bio's.....

Romy Veul
Hi, my name is Romy Veul and I'm a 17-year old girl, who lives a busy but fun life in Uithoorn, a small village in the Netherlands. I live there together with my parents, my two brothers (they are 15-year old twins) Joeri and Ivan and our two cats, who tend to be a little crazy most of the time, and guinea pigs. I'm a high school student and hope to pass my exams in May. After high school I'd love to study in Amsterdam. I'm not quite sure yet about what I'd like to major in, but the study psychology is high on 'my list' at the moment.

I started scrapbooking back in 2006, two years after attending a scrapbook class at my school. And my passion for scrapbooking has grown a lot over the last few years. I found out that there is a big digital world, in which you can share your passion with other artists, and that there are blogs, challenges, messageboards and big online stores - okay, maybe I'd better hadn't found these stores, since they are the main reason my money is almost flying out of my wallet - . Two years ago I made my first card and I now love the combination of making both cards and layouts. I think you could best describe my style of scrapbooking as detailed, colourful, shabby chic and girly. I feel lucky to have 8 nieces, who are - most of the time - willing to pose for me. My other favourite subjects to scrap about are our trips or vacations, my friends and our pets. And recently I'm trying to put myself in the spotlights on my layouts more often too.

Scrapbooking has brought me so much to be grateful for. It's more than just an addiction: it's my passion, it's kind of a second life to me. I love to leave things the way they are and to just scrap my worries away. I'm part of the Bo Bunny designteam, I'm on the Scrapstreet staff and design for a Dutch scrapbookstore as well. I also feel blessed for the fact that I've met so many beautiful persons, that I can share my love for scrapbooking with. Their comments and sweet words are making the world of scrapbooking even better. I feel thrilled to be on the Design Team of this amazing kit club. I've been a fan of My Creative Scrapbook kits for a long time and working with so many talented girls and such amazing products is a pure delight. Thanks for this great opportunity!
