Final SPS Design Team Blog Hop....

Good Morning Everyone,

Welcome to the Pumpkin Spice December Design Team Blog Hop!

This is our final 2013 Pumpkin Spice Design Team Blog Hop.  It has been such a pleasure working with these talented ladies.  They have been so supportive of my little venture, Shop Pumpkin Spice over the years.

I stumbled upon the world of 'blogging' nearly by accident when I purchased my Cricut back in 2008. Promising my hubby that I would be crafting my fingers to the bones... but my real love, I found, was PAPER.  I should have known since I am the crazy person that has post it notes in all colors and varieties even though I really don't use them.  And don't get me started on the note pads with all the cute designs.

I found MME (my mind's eye) in a local Scrapbooking store and fell in love with Wild Asparagus. The colors, the paper texture, the quality.. ahhhhhh.  I became friends with KC at MME, via my many emails, and eventually he got me started on my first Wholesale order, and that was the beginning of Shop Pumpkin Spice.

Over the next year, things started to take off and other paper lines were added to my little shop. Echo Park, Cosmo Cricket, Bo Bunny...

Then in 2011, things really took off for SPS after the first official design team was starting, due in a large part to the coaxing of a special friend, Courtney.. thank you for everything!

With the start of the design team, I had the honor of meeting some amazing ladies.  Not only are they all beyond words Talented but they are super sweet and generous ladies.  My friends!

I have watched DT sisters move onto bigger and better opportunities and been so proud of their accomplishments and many publications.  I feel so privileged to have been associated with all the SPS Design Team sisters, past and present.

Although this is a sad farewell to the 2013 design team, I know I will continue to see their wonderful projects on their own blogs.

Lets starts the BLOG HOP!!!!

Begin with June at for the beginning of some spectacular inspiration.  June amazes me with her projects from scraps and older designs.. she has a definite eye for color and design.

Then hop over to Saundra at she is sure to WOW you with her endless ability to create something wonderful with her die cuts.

Then hop over to Heather at  Heather's cards are also available to purchase for a cause close to her heart.  Be sure to read about her Sister Connection after you get inspired by her beautiful cards.

Then comes Missy at Her layouts amaze me and I am sure they will you too.  She combines so many design elements, from die cuts to coloring to pattern paper contrasts.

Be sure to add all these talented ladies to your daily blog reading.  They have such fun personalities, their stories will surely bring a smile to your face.

I will miss all of them deeply.  Huge Hugs my dear friends.
