Introducing the new DT.......

Firstly I just want to thank everone who applied for the DT call. I had the hardest time deciding and I wish I could have you all, so if you didn't make it this time please do try again next call.

So it now give me great pleasure to introduce the new DT....

Anna Parker

'Hi I'm Anna..22 and from Suffolk UK. I have been scrapping for about 3 years now, mainly since the birth of my little boy Jack, who is now 2 1/2 and features alot on my layouts along with my partner Lee. I am really happy to be joining the new Butterfly Crafts DT, I am also currently on the DT for Twisted Sketches and have been lucky enough to have layouts featured in The Scrapbook Magazine, Scrapbook Trends and Scrapbook Inspirations: Idea Book. Thanks for having me, I look forward to the challenges...'

Yatie Tajudin

"Hi everybody! I'm Yatie from Malaysia. I am married to a wonderful husband for 11 years and we have a 9 year old daughter, Nadiah, who is usually the subject in my layouts.I've been scrapping for almost 4 years now and love everything about it from the shopping to the planning, to putting everything together to make a layout or an altered item. I don't think that I have a specific style because I like to experiment and play around with new techniques and new products. I have never regretted jumping into the scrapping world because it has been a wonderful journey where I can express my artistic side as well as making great friends around the world."

Fay Powell

"Hello, I'm Fay from Leamington Spa, UK. Mum to two girls, aged 8 and 6 and about to celebrate my 10th wedding anniversary. We've recently had a new addition to the family, a 7 month old English Springer Spaniel. As well as looking after the family and dog I work part-time from home and sometimes manage to fit in time to craft! I have been scrapbooking for about 3 years and have also recently renewed my love of sewing. I'm thrilled to be on the Butterfly Crafts DT for a second time, I had such fun on my last term and have always enjoyed playing along with the challenges even when not on the DT. I hope you enjoy the new challenges too."

Azura Alyssa

"Hi My name is Azura Alyssa. I am from the sunny island of Singapore. I am down to earth, cheerful and loud. I always have crazy and fun ideas. My life circles around those who are close to me especially my family, my friends and of course my boyfriend. They are everything to me and they always end up being the subjects to my scraps. Scrapbooking is now a part of who I am. Its my own little retreat of being artsy fartsy. It makes me happy and that is all that matters. Being on the team is an honor for me. I wish that throughout my term I will keep you inspired and you will inspire me as well. Thank you."

Danielle Aubroeck

"My name is Danielle and I am married to a wonderful husband. Together we have 2 sons. We live in the Netherlands and I just discovered how great this scrapping community is. I am scrapping for about 1.5 years now and just recently started showing my work online on my blog I LOVE it! It gives me so much join to connect with creative people who love the same thing. I love to document everyday life and document thoughts and feelings. I hope to inspire some of you, just as so many inspired me!"

Kat Poole

"My name is Kat Poole and I currently live in Southern California. I am originally from the Eastern U.S., but my job caused me to switch coasts (I'm not complaining...I love both places!) I have been scrapping for about 2 1/2 years and it has quickly become my favorite hobby. In my free time, when I'm not scrapping, I enjoy running, cooking and spending time with my friends, family and boyfriend."

Kim Kendell

"Hi name is Kim Kendell I am from country NSW in Australia I have been scrapping for approx. 8 years and am totally addicted. I love to work with paper and colour and simple love vintage styles."

Ria Mojica

"I'm Ria Mojica from the Philippines and I am thrilled to be on the Butterfly Crafts DT! I started scrapbooking in April 2003 and have not looked back since. I am so addicted to this hobby that when my husband comes home from work, I have to ask for his permission to scrap at night -- he thinks I prefer to scrap than spend time with him:) I describe my scrapping style as "simple with a kick" but I am willing to try anything and everything scrapping-related! I look forward to the challenges and discovering new things by being on this awesome team!"

Welcome Ladies, we can't wait to see your gorgeous LO's for our first new challenge coming March 15th.......
